How to Fix Fallout Character Overhaul Not Working in Fallout: New Vegas

Fallout Character Overhaul (FCO) is a popular mod that improves the appearance of NPCs in Fallout: New Vegas. However, some users may encounter issues with the mod not working properly, such as missing textures, red exclamation marks, or crashes. In this article, we will show you some possible solutions to fix FCO not working in Fallout: New Vegas.

1. Enable Archive Invalidation

Archive Invalidation is a feature that allows the game to use loose files added by mods instead of the ones in the BSA archive. If Archive Invalidation is not enabled or not working correctly, FCO may not load its meshes and textures properly. To enable Archive Invalidation, you need to use a mod manager such as Nexus Mod Manager (NMM), Fallout Mod Manager (FOMM), Mod Organizer (MO), or Wrye Flash (WF). Depending on the mod manager you use, you may need to toggle Archive Invalidation off and on again, or check or uncheck a box in the tools menu. For more details on how to enable Archive Invalidation with different mod managers, see [^1^] [^2^].

2. Install UIO - User Interface Organizer

UIO - User Interface Organizer is a mod that helps other UI mods work together without conflicts. FCO requires UIO to work properly, so make sure you have it installed and activated before installing FCO. You can download UIO from [^3^].

3. Install FCO correctly

FCO is a complex mod that requires careful installation. Make sure you follow the instructions on the mod page and install all the required files and patches. You can also watch this video for a step-by-step guide on how to install FCO: . If you are using NMM or MO, you can also use the installer option that will guide you through the installation process. If you are using FOMM or WF, you need to manually select the files and options you want to install.

4. Check for mod conflicts

FCO may conflict with other mods that alter NPCs or their faces, such as New Vegas Redesigned, Fallout 3 Redesigned, or Project Nevada. To avoid conflicts, make sure you load FCO after any other NPC mods in your load order. You can also use a tool such as LOOT or BOSS to sort your load order automatically and detect any potential issues. You can also check the compatibility patches section on the FCO mod page and download any patches that apply to your mod setup.

5. Reinstall FCO or start a new game

If none of the above solutions work for you, you may need to reinstall FCO or start a new game. Sometimes, FCO may not work properly if you install it mid-game or if your game files are corrupted. To reinstall FCO, uninstall it completely from your mod manager and delete any leftover files from your data folder. Then, install it again following the instructions on the mod page or the video guide. To start a new game, create a new save file and load it with FCO activated.
