PostSubject: LOL Here we go.   Sat Feb 26, 2011 9:07 pm

I mentioned in another thread that I had purchased Fallout 3 and the developer isn't supporting it in Windows 7 even though the game is under 3 years old and the packaging implies that it is compatible...

Here is a link to my thread at their forum-

http://tinyurl.com/4kvz38g

I did a tiny url so that, if any shenanigans get going, it won't be so obvious where it came from.

I would like to see some general irritation come to them. I would like to see some good old fashioned chan justice. But, I am not astute in motivating folks in to a raid. So, any help would be appreciated.

at this point we are not sure if a raid is a good idea to advertise here. sorry. we would be more than happy to start a forum for development of a patch to make it run on windows 7 for you tho. i run it fine btw on 7 ultimate.

I completely understand. This board is new and certainly doesn't need BS. Just wanted to post it so that people could see the situation and if "something" happened, I would want it to come from elsewhere.

Again, I totally respect this place. No trouble intended.

EDIT-Please tell me your system specs and anything you had to do to get it to run. All I have ever wanted was to just be able to play the game.

Try running it in compatibility mode. R-Click the .exe > Properties > Compatibility > Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP SP3

Done already. Ran in two different modes of XP and two different modes of Vista. Run in numerous resolutions and with all effects turned off. Never get past the first 2 seconds of the game starting. It is ridiculous.

can you post a speccy or list your specs in detail? also i wonder if you have your windows c redistributable and .net framework. try getting .net framework 5 and the newest c distributable from microsoft site. then make sure you have directx 9 and 10 all up to date and ALL the fallout updates installed in sequential order.
