Issues fixed

Game doesn't start

The game will not start through the launcher on some systems.
Startup Fix[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\Binaries\ folder.
  2. Open "runme.dat" in a text editor.
  3. Change "R6Vegas_Launcher.exe" to "R6Vegas_Game.exe".

HUD is in the 4:3 middle of the screen on wide resolutions

The widescreen HUD in the fix is a leftover file from the Xbox 360 version and it causes the bugged cover sniper aim along with the UI shift to the left when used.
16:9 fullscreen HUD fix[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\KellerGame\Content\MenusPC\
  2. Delete or rename r6hud.mgb
  3. Go to <path-to-game>\KellerGame\Content\MenusPC\Widescreen\
  4. Copy r6hudWide.mgb to the .\MenusPC\ folder and rename it to r6hud.mgb

Restore the original bullet collision configuration

The game uses the modified bullet collision config adopted for the pinpoint mouse aim accuracy even when the controller is active.
No actual gameplay benefits with restoring it when you won't play the game with the gamepad.
Replace the "KellerWeaponsConfig.ini" file with the original Xbox 360 one[citation needed]
  1. Download the file and make sure to retain its original name and extension.
  2. Go to <path-to-game>\Rainbow Six Vegas\KellerGame\Config\PC\ folder.
  3. Backup your original "KellerWeaponsConfig.ini" file and place the new one instead of it.
