Halp.

Even though I thought the game was boring as hell, I decided to try it again on pc, thinking maybe it would be more fun on pc. So, I've had no other problems with the game, other than crashing once when using VATS, but now every time I try and talk to that guy in the suit, who tells you to blow up Megaton, my game crashes to desktop, saying that a problem has been found, blah blah blah blah. Do any of you know how to fix that?

    Patched? DX up to date? Drivers?

    I can't really help that much as I'm using a different 'version', as it were and I haven't had any crashes. Comes to something eh?

    Try running it in windowed mode and if that fixes it you can use this program to run it maximized while in windowed mode.

    Damn that sucks man, when I played in windowed mode it solved all my crashes. Maybe turn off vsync? Don't forget to turn it off in your video card control panel too.

    OHH, I just realized the problem! Shame on me, I didn't read the thread properly and thought it only crashes in VATS. Do you have any custom codecs installed on your computer such as FDDShow or K-Lite? It is a known issue that when you talk to Mr. Burke. Sorry for double post as well.

    This is a fresh install of vista 64 pretty much.
    I haven't installed any codecs at all.

    Do you have anti aliasing on? If you do, just turn it off, see if anything happens.

    Hmm, well you could try the latest patch for it. If that doesn't work then go to add/remove programs and delete all entries of Games For Windows Live and then go here and get this .dll file and put that in your Windows/SysWOW64 folder. Keep in mind that before you uninstall Game For Windows Live you have to have applied the latest Fallout 3 patch first.

    So, your game is patched, and you're using DX10, now I must ask do you have any mods installed? And are you using a Windows Live account?

    Ok. So I assume you did the Windows Live Fix? If not do it and if it still doesn't work this might. But just to let you know it takes hours. Leave it on over night.

    I'm downloading that right now actually, on rapidshare.
    That being said, how could a file that's 15megs take so long to work?
    I'm going to do it tomorrow, since I don't have time tonight.

    Well, it is a batch file that extracts and then repacks all of the sound file I believe, and since Fallout 3 has what, 5 hours of dialogue or something? It takes forever.

    Well, it worked with stopping the crashes with Burkes, but now I keep randomly crashing.
    It's pissing me off so badly.

    Uninstall your video drivers, run Drive Cleaner and try installing the newest, also update NET Framework 3.0, Games for Windows Live, DirectX, and add Fallout3.exe to exceptions in FFDSHOW .. I think that should work a little..

    I also read a guide somewhere that by modifying something in registry it would fix or at least reduce the crash frequency.

    If I get to find it, I'll post it here.
