Fallout 4 Far Harbor Errors:

#1 Fallout 4 Far Harbor Crashes

Some players are encountering crashes in the game after installing the Far Harbor DLC. To fix these crashes, you can check the workarounds below, or you can follow our tutorial at the end of the post.

Fallout 4 Far Harbor Crash

  • Fix Crash/CTD on Pip-Boy

I was having this issue, the following advice I found didn’t help me (but might help you):
1. Disable all mods
2. Remap Pip-Boy to another key besides tab
3. Delete your files in the Steam/steamapps/common/Fallout 4/Data/Strings folder*
4. Delete any files put there by mods (the obvious ones named after mods) in your Data subfolders like your Materials, Meshes, Strings, Textures*
5 Delete any mod files in the Data folder that are .esm or .esp*

* remember to verify your game cache afterward via Steam

What worked was I went into the Data/Interface folder and saw two files “Pipboy_InvPage” and PipboyMenu” and I deleted both of those. I then validated the game files and got a 100% (hmm, those must not be part of the install…) so I retried the game.
And it worked.

Hope that helps someone else I even reinstalled the darn game too but that didn’t do it.
Good luck everybody
