PostSubject: Fallout 3 Crashing "New Game"    Tue May 31, 2016 5:56 pm

Hello everyone! My Fallout 3 was gifted to me way back and just now wanted to look into a fix for this problem I had with it since. When I click on "New Game", right when it starts to load the game it would crash. I looked up some things on Google and all said something about Games For Windows Live or getting a mod that disables it. I downloaded Games For Windows Live and tried getting the mod that makes it not need it but both still seems to not have a fix on it. Im wondering if anyone knows a way around this problem?

Okay, I have a remedy for this issue.

Firstly, download FOSE. It will disable GFWL and provide more mod support.
FOSE Link:
http://fose.silverlock.org:
 
Then, watch this video to hopefully fix the crash you are experiencing.

What operating system are you using? In Fallout 3, Windows 7 and newer require some ini tweaks to work, as well as having Games for Windows LIVE installed.

Put the highlighted words in your FALLOUT.ini https://gyazo.com/b063433e1a46fab59eabc101c5185de3

You also simply HAVE TO GET THE UNOFFICIAL PATCH: http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/19122/?

If you are new to modding, then download and install the installer version: just double-click it anywhere on your comp. and it works automatically.

@"VWgolfR1" The patch diddnt help the crashing unfortunately, but one of my friends off of Twitch sent me a link that adresses a few scenarios of Fallout 3 Crashing. The 7th point in the Steam Guide states EXACTLY my problem of crashing right when i press "New Game". Tells me I had to download a Fallout 3 Intel Bypass Package and put the D3D9.dll file to the Fallout Directory and it should fix it. Did that and it worked !! Thanks for everyone for helping! Hello Hats Off

I'll leave a link to the Steam Guide just in case anyone else is experiencing this same problem currently or will in the future. Also for anyone experiencing Fallout 3 crahses, like i said above, this Guide also covers a few different scenarios of why it may be crashing

@"John_570" That's good to hear. So the issue was ''the wimpy graphics processor built into the CPU'' that you use instead of ATI or NVidia TongueTril

At least you can finally have some fun now Wink

Uh if you are on windows 7 there is a security update that breaks fallout 3, the one called "KB2803821
" deleting it fixed it for me. Smile I also have updates set to manual instead of automatic!

@"VWgolfR1" Yeah right cheers Lol. I have a laptop thats why, its a Dell Inspiron 17 and its been treating me pretty well so far being able to play Fallouts, Skyrim, ARMA III. Most i had to find a way around that built in graphics to play Lol

@"Keevs" I have Windows 10, just upgraded to it recently from Windows 8. But I will set Manual Updating instead of Auto Thanks !
