PostSubject: Fallout 3 Help   Sun Apr 26, 2015 2:27 am

Okay so I've been trying for like a week now to get Fallout 3 working right and can't do it. It crashes to desktop at different times when I'm in the middle of playing it. Sometimes I can play for 2 hours without a CTD other times I can't even play for 5 mins and I've tried the Inumthreads=2 thing but it still does it.
Any help would be appreciated!

If New vegas runs smoothly, download Tale of Two Wastelands, it'll allow you to play FO3 in the more stable New Vegas.

how big is your Mod list and whats your PC hardware and Operating System fsufan23
cause having outdated hardware can lead to crashes if you have a big mod list and i hear windows 8 can cause problems too.

Yeah, if you want us to help you, you HAVE to post your specs and load order.

Are you using the Updated unofficial patch and Error Correction? I get an extremely stable gaming experience using those two together.

archive invalidated wouldn't be the problem if you had mods on that required it they wouldn't function right but he would complained about that too since body replacers depend on invalidation or you end up having weird looking tattoo pants and saggy looking skin

4gb ram enabler mod might help cause the game can be demanding on your Ram when using high graphical mods especially the mod TTW that requires 4gb enabler or textures wont load up right it things will look out of place.

When you require help there are a few things needed:
Load order.
Mods installed.
Hardware specs and settings.
Conditions when it crashes, try to find out situations like it might crash when there is a fight scene, removing armors (had that one myself) and entering/exiting buildings etc even fast travel or when it saves.

Some things to try first.

This will suck but..
Remove all your mods and run a simple Fallout game. Verify the cache through steam (if it is a Steam game ) with really nothing else running and see if it still crashes on you. Then you can try to add some mods. Many times there might be some problems with the game or hardware before you even added a single mod.

As jkdsh said, the best solution to run FO3 is to install tales of two wastelands. I had the same problems with FO3 as you said. Also if you have windows 7 you have to install several patches.

Also i cant understand why jkdsh get a negativ reputation for his answer???

I gave the negative reps out for bad suggestions/not being on topic/pushing a mod unnecessarily/not really being helpful.

1: TTW is a FNV mod and therefore not really relevant to this topic.
2: TTW is difficult to install, comes with it's own problems, is almost incompatible with every fallout 3 mod, and is incredibly easy to muck up. We want to focus on fixing this fallout 3 install, not dealing with the clusterfuck that is TTW.
3: If OP wanted to play TTW he would play TTW, not Fallout 3. As shocking as it is, some of us don't want to play your damn merger.
4: I find people who instantly reply to any topic about fallout 3 with cries of TTW as, if not more, annoying then people who respond with "Oh, you're playing fallout 3? Delete that and play FNV instead." Maybe people just want to play Fallout 3, okay?

As far as I understand, I am within the ruleset for reps, though I am always open to hearing if I am misusing the system Smile .

But, still, let's keep this thread on topic. If you have a problem with my reasoning, please, send me a pm or report me to DVAted or other moderators who will correct me if I have misunderstood the rep system.

Since you don't seem to be clear, allow me to answer - you are absolutely overstepping your bounds with these kinds of posts.  

1.  You are not in a position to judge what is or is not relevant to this topic.  Some people cannot run Fallout 3 at all due to issues with G4WL among other things - many of those people can run New Vegas just fine.  Which makes TTW a perfectly reasonable suggestion.

2.  TTW is a headache to install but so are countless other mods.  Summarizing the hard work of that team as a 'clusterfuck' simply because of your own personal experience is petty and lame.  There are many people who are able to install and use TTW just fine.

3.  It is not 'his' damn merger.  It was a recommendation, and a polite one at that, making your hostility as pointless as it is rude.  

4.  You're entitled to your opinion of peoples' suggestions, but you're not entitled to be rude to those people, nor are you entitled to abuse the rep system because of your personal opinion about an addon.  

I've no idea what led you to believe that it is your place to do this kind of thing, but it is not.  Avoid making these kinds of posts, and do not abuse the rep system further.


Please do not allow situations like this to discourage you from continuing to be awesome, helpful people.
