Troubleshooting

Problems and how to solve them.

Getting stuck when interacting with a terminal

This is not a WTP-specific issue.

Occasionally you may get stuck when attempting to access a terminal. This can be fixed by opening the console (tilde key, right above TAB on your keyboard) and typing in tcl. Upon closing the console (hitting tilde again), you should be able to use the terminal. Remember to open the console and type in tcl again to re-enable collision.

Subtitles get stuck during first Minutemen quest

This is not a WTP-specific issue.

When talking to Preston and Sturges in the Museum of Freedom, the subtitles usually get stuck for a time during the conversation. This happens in vanilla too and cannot be fixed as far as I know.

Issues with the Pip-Boy map when playing with a controller

By default, the Pip-boy UI is of a pitifully low resolution. Unfortunately, increasing it will cause a bug when playing with a controller that restrict the cursor to the upper left corner on the Pip-boy map.

You can work around this by turning off your controlling, opening your map, then turning it back on again.

The alternative is to revert the high resolution tweak in the INI files. To do so, follow these instructions:

  • Open the INI Editor in Mod Organizer 2.
  • Click on the fallout4prefs.ini tab.
  • Scroll down to the [Display] section.
  • Revert the values for the Pip-boy height and width to the default (see below).
uPipboyTargetHeight=700
uPipboyTargetWidth=876
  • Click the Save button at the bottom and close the window.

Flickering puddles

This is a persistent issue with cubemaps. We have a fix for it, Fixed flickering puddles, but the bug still occurs and I’m honestly clueless. I fixed the fix in WTP 1.6 and it should be fine now.

Nights are too dark

You can change (night) brightness in the ENB settings. Please refer to the sticky comment on the True Nights mod page for instructions (note that in WTP, the ENB GUI is open with F11).
