So, at the end of the Lonesome Road add-on I chose to bomb both Legion and NCR, which of course maximizes my infamy with both factions. I'm on my umpteenth play-through and I'd like to repair my reputation with the NCR, even if I need to use console-command cheats.

After some tweakage, my Pip-Boy now tells me I'm "liked" by the NCR, and I've removed the "Don't Tread on the Bear!" quest (which completed saying I'm a "terrorist")... but still official NCR reps attack me on sight.

Did I miss something?

It seems like the most plausible way to do this, which might be closed to you, is to complete Lonesome Road before the quest "Render unto Caesar" which resets your reputation with both the NCR and the Legion. –  LessPop_MoreFizz Jul 19 '12 at 4:20

Actually, the rep reset triggers are different for both the NCR and the Legion, render unto caesar resets legion reputation (or, removes the negative reputation, infame iirc). NCR rep is reset when you get the offer to meet the ambasaddor. After coming out of the lucky 38 for the first time. –  Ids Jul 19 '12 at 10:38
    
@Ids Yeah, it's the same basic moment though. Forgive my shorthand. –  LessPop_MoreFizz Jul 19 '12 at 10:43
    
Is reloading the game prior to the launch and setting NCR reputation as Idolized an option? –  Wilerson Jul 19 '12 at 12:22
    
@LessPop_MoreFizz no problem. It can be annoying, just wanted to be clear. –  Ids Jul 19 '12 at 15:51

Like LessPop_MoreFizz mentioned, the only way to normally prevent the infame hits is to do the add-on before starting the Things that go Boom and Render unto Caesar quests. The only way to prevent the infame reset triggers is thus to not enter the lucky 38 or the tops casino before finishing the add-on.

To reset the infamy of the factions use the following console commands:

For the NCR use:

setreputation 1 000f43de 0

For the Legion use:

setreputation 1 000f43dd 0

This keeps your normal fame, it just makes them forget all the bad stuff you did.

I think that simply removing the don't tread on the bear quest is not enough. When this quest is failed certain NCR NPC's dissappear from the game. I think you need to reset the quest status back to phase one, and enable the NPC's again.

Try this to reset the quest:

setstage 00167f0e 1

And use these commands to enable the two NPC's (replace refID with 00116840 (Crocker), and 001206fe (Moore):

prid refID
disable
enable
kill 
resurrect
moveto player

(For the best effect stand at the position the NPC would normally appear).

Not 100% sure this is all you need to do, the don't tread on the bear quest might set some more variables that you need to reset yourself, look at the quest console commands and try a few of those.

Thanks @Ids -- great answer! –  ewall Jul 24 '12 at 14:37
    
@ewall Did it work? –  Ids Jul 24 '12 at 23:32
    
Sadly... it didn't work :( But the idea about resurrecting the key NPCs was a good one. I had infamy like -50 and fame at plus 50, and the Pip-Boy showed me as "Liked"--but I was still attacked by a lot of NCR. Oh well... played on. It was kind of fun doing the Yes Men ending when I had to kill all my NCR "friends" as well as the Legion "foes". –  ewall Jul 26 '12 at 3:57
