Mouse lag after the patch? THIS IS FOR YOU! :D

So you've installed the latest Fallout 3 patch and come to the terrifying conclusion that your mouse moves ZOMGWTFBBQ fast in the menus and when using VATS. It's a bug that's simple to fix. First, locate your FALLOUT.ini file. It's commonly in "C:\Users\*username*\Documents\My Games\Fallout 3\" under Vista or "C:\Documents and Settings\*username*\My Games\Fallout 3\" under XP. When you found it open it with Notepad or your preferred editor. Don't pick Wordpad as it will screw up the ini. Find the [Controls] section and then add these lines in it. (Between [Controls] and [Water] or whatever the next item is silly...) fForegroundMouseAccelBase=0 fForegroundMouseAccelTop=0 fForegroundMouseBase=0 fForegroundMouseMult=0 The numbers are tweakable, but I haven't messed around with it though. Don't forget to save and test out if it worked.
