FIX: Mouse Lag/Acceleration in Fallout New Vegas

First of all I have to apologize, my PC broke down on me so I had to play "Fresh Installation Of Windows 7 And Afterwards Installing All Important Programs Anew". FIOW7AAIAIPA is truly a great game, easy a 10/10.
So that's the reason why there was no update yesterday.
And since I lost my few-hours-into-the-game Fallout New Vegas character I have only time for a small update because I HAVE to play that game, it is just that good.
The hint is a fix for a very annoying bug in F:NV regarding the mouse acceleration: the mouse actually lags. Some may have experienced it, some may not, I have. And it really was a pain in the ass. 
BUT! 
there is an easy way to fix this, all you have to do is to add 
fForegroundMouseAccelBase=0
fForegroundMouseAccelTop=0
fForegroundMouseBase=0
fForegroundMouseMult=0
at a certain point in two .ini-files. The first file is located in the F:NV-folder and it's called Fallout_default.ini. You have to search for the [Controls] part in the .ini and then just copy-paste the above lines at the end of that block.
The second .ini you have to change is located in your My Games directory. Somewhere like C:\Users\<your name\Documents\My Games\FalloutNV. This one is just called Fallout.ini. Make sure that the file isn't write-only, search again for the [Controls] part in the file and add the lines.
Congratulations, you are now mouse-lag-free.

  1. FIOW7AAIAIPA is indeed a great game and I am glad to see that you were willing to look past the things so many have criticized about it in the past to understand what a true gem of an experience it truly is.

  11. I didn't have any mouse lag when I was playing but that might be because I don't have a fancy mouse or anything.
