Today I launched Fallout: New Vegas and it gave me an error:

Application load error P:********** 

(Dashes are hidden since it might be a security thing)

I was busy at Vault 11 fighting laggy robots at 1 FPS in the sacrificial chamber and I had to end task the game after saving it because i was getting tired and it was so laggy that the quit button wouldn't work.

I also ended Steam's Task while the game was Syncing.

What should I do to get the game working again? Buy it again? ._.

EDIT: Steam launched the game with Error code 80. What's that?

    The load error isn't a security thing, just the load error code. Could be useful to know what it is! – franglais Aug 12 '14 at 11:30
  • Yeah, seems the way to go should be verify cache. Googling the error message next time should help you faster! – franglais Aug 12 '14 at 11:33

My first thing to try would be to verify the integrity of the Steam Cache.

To do this

  1. find the game in your Steam library
  2. right click and select properties
  3. click Local Files
  4. click Verify Local Cache

see if that helps

  • Nope. Still gave me an error whenever i launch it through steam or if i launch it through NVSE. – unknownA Aug 12 '14 at 11:34
  • @MarkieJonesWTF so it verified and didn't download any additional files? Have you restarted steam mand/or your pc? – franglais Aug 12 '14 at 11:36
  • Just restarted steam after verifying game cache. Thanks! – unknownA Aug 12 '14 at 11:37
  • Good good! Glad it's back up and running! – franglais Aug 12 '14 at 11:38
