About this video

A guide to setting up your PC version of Fallout 4 for modding. This does not show you how to install mods, but rather set your game up ready for mods to be installed. These edits are required for installed mods to work in your game.

You will need to add the following line to the Fallout4Prefs.ini file below the section marked [Launcher]:

bEnableFileSelection=1

You will need to change the following line in Fallout4.ini:

sResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\, TEXTURES\, MUSIC\, SOUND\, INTERFACE\, MESHES\, PROGRAMS\, MATERIALS\, LODSETTINGS\, VIS\, MISC\, SCRIPTS\, SHADERSFX\

                                                          Does anyone know if this is still relevant and advised? It seems very old and I imagine that NMM would handle this?

I have 77 mods successfully running for more than a year and adding (and know about people who run 3 times as many as I do) and no problems whatsoever leaving this line BLANK! It just causes infinite loading times after Nexus Mod Manager's own complaints, I have read about, where it says to empty this line for it causes long loading times (if not crashes!.
