I just purchased this game an hour ago, and it installs fine and everything but the game will not work. At first it just froze when I clicked new game, but now when i run it it just crashes.

It's not only me either, I checked the bethesda boards and apparently lots of people are getting the same problems.

If you're going to buy this game on PC, you could end up with the same damn errors, so If I were you i'd wait till it's all resolved.

And yes, Ive tried everything.

Us brits have to wait to the fucking 31st for this game so don't complain about waiting.

10 long years i've been waiting and bethesda have to fuck it up with problems from launch day 1.

Back in the day before internet, games couldn't be patched so they always came out 100%, now days it seems that games are released at 60% with the devs throwing in a fix or two when they feel like it.

Back in the day before internet games came out pretty much error free.


Games were also like 2MB in size back then.

I gotta wait till the 31st too but I'm gonna buy the PC version, fuck all y'all.
What came first, the spamming or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids reading thousands, literally thousands of posts about anime, 4chan, flaming, goatse and emos. Did I make terrible posts because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I made terrible posts?

Alright, lots of people are still having major problems with loading the games, but there's also a bunch of people that are having no problems now.

There's a chance you might crash, but the problem will mostly be on your end I reckon.

What did me in was my sound card drivers.

For anyone who is going to play this game on PC and has a Xonar DX make sure to turn off your GX.

You make it seem like the majority of people are crashing and there's a few who can run it ok.

That's because I went to the bethesda boards and there has been SO many topics on game crashes its ridicolous. I think about 315 people were viewing the "PC issues" part of the board.

Everyone who had problems all had different specs on their computer too, so it wasnt just the people with low end PC's

The truth is, there's a good chance it will work fine, but there ARE problems with the PC version of Fallout 3, it's been acknowledged by the bethesda staff.

My advice is to run the game with most of your useless processes turned off.


EDIT: Espically to those buying from Direct2Drive. The "live" function will not work, but the issue is being looked into.

I'd say 99% of people on the Bethesda boards can't tell their ass from their elbow so it's natural they would have problems.
