camp mccarran crash

Post » Wed Mar 30, 2011 2:19 pm

so i've had fallout new vegas since it came out, and recently i just decided to explore every possible square inch of the wasteland. recently i discovered camp mccarran, which i knew of before but had never been to. i went about my usual method of killing every single living thing i see, and about 50 feet or so into the camp my game crashes. i've reloaded it many times, and it keeps happening over and over again, not necessarily at the same exact spot, but at about 50 feet or so inside the camp. i don't know if this has anything to do with it, but i killed about 20 ncr before my save point (about 10 feet inside the camp) so basically i can only walk for 10 seconds or so until it crashes. i have never had this problem before in any other place, and other than this my game runs extremely smoothly. any help or suggestions would be appreciated

To get at least inside the terminal (or other buildings with the right code) you can try the console:
Open the console
Type "coc CampMCTermInt02"

I know that's not exactly a solution to your problem, but maybe it helps a little.

Same issues here as well. I've tried older saves and un loaded mods and I can say it doesn't happen with every save. Just some. Your not the only one, and frankly
before 1.3, I hadn't experienced this issue before.

Got the same problem today, it's my first time to Camp McCarran after 1.3 update.
At first I can enter the terminal building, but after I left Camp McCarran (like going to Jacobstown) there's no way I can get back it. The game will always CTD when I'm about 30m near the terminal building.
Hell, I can't even be close about 50m near the back of the terminal building (from the back door of Contreras' supply shack).

The only good thing is I've completed all the quests related to the outside of Camp McCarran (Three-card bounty, I put a spell on you, etc) before 1.3 update, now I only need to use coc command to teleport myself in the building for other quests or buying stuff.

I have the same issue and was trying to figure out if it was FOOK NV, Invisible Wall Remover, Operation Fixed Terrain, or Community Bugfix Compilation... are you guys using mods?

I have been having crash issues elsewhere in the game but not reproduceable like this one with coming near the front doors of McCarran terminal building from the main Camp entrance.

I was hoping to finish the White Wash quest line before doing the final showdown.

I've been playing NV for months and never crashed inside Mcarren until after new patch. What I tried out of desperation worked but not 100% all the time. Wait saved inside the camp, changed to third person view, walked slowly by using caps lock, and tried walking sideways to the front door, after several tries and crashes I got in . A combination of these or just one? Fluke? I don't know, but I was able to get back inside the door without crashing. Still can't complete quest "No Not Much" but that could be another issue. I'm not using any mods for fear of making things worse. Sounds crazy, I'm not a programmer and don't know the slightest. Wish they could get ALL these bugs out. Good luck.

Im having this problem aswell, and the reason to it is an error in the games codeing. and the thing about codeing errors is that it cant be fixed by us, only Bethesda can go back in and re edit it. cause my game runs smooth anywhere else, but as soon as i enter camp MCcarran its an instant crash every 30-50 feet, or 1-2 min of being inside the camp. but at times i can go in and it will be fine, but other areas become a crashing spot. i have also realized that if you have the game running on steam...when you run fallout and click the "data files" option. you see a file called "FalloutNV.esm" and if you double click it, it brings up the crashing error. so its a corrupt file in the game (codeing). and its causeing certain spots to becomed bugged.

I hope this helps, and hopefully thell get it fixed ASAP.

I'm having the same exact problem. To be honest I'm glad that I'm not alone and that my saves aren't screwed up. Hopefully this will get fixed.

Same problem when I go to McCarran outside from Supply Shack. Indoor locations works fine, McCarran airport (with all of the tents) the same, but when I go to McCarran outside terminal where all the planes are, it is just a matter of 20-30 meters taht I can walk, after that CTD. Before the 1.3 patch I had no problems in the area. I've used a saved gamed from 1.2 version, so if I start a new game with 1.3 I don't know what happens.

Exact same issue here, it's even logged on the bugs page of the wiki.
* pc Since the latest Steam update (patch 4) the game may CTD upon entering the camp and / or reaching a "half way" point that is parallel to the first set of doors to the inner terminal buildings.

It happens in a number of areas around the camp. I get it if I try to get to the control tower from the supply shack as well. I can find a fix anywhere for this, even a community patch from www.newvegasnexus.com would be welcome at this point. This bug has effectively cut me off from playing out any of the NCR quests.

The weird thing is is that it does not seem to be consistent as I first thought. I managed to avoid/reset it by exiting the camp and entering again. Could approach the doors without any problems that time.

Just thought I'd throw another one on the pile: I get the exact same crash to desktop as the other contributors to the thread: Walk into Camp McCarran, game CTD as I approach the tents.

Be careful if you save just before the crash as I have had it corrupt my saved game so badly that when I try to load it, it puts my character outside the clinic at the start of the game in Goodsprings instead of the save location.
