I bought FO3 and it keeps crashing, and I don't mean normal crashing, I mean it will play the heart monitor sound, over and over again. Before that, it would crash normally when I started a new game, so I found a fix for it, but now it's doing what I said before.

    I believe I may know of a fix; if you're using Windows 7.

    First, open your start menu, and click on Documents. From there, open the "My Games" folder, and open the Fallout3 folder, and open the FALLOUT file. (Notepad will work just fine) After you've opened it, use ctrl+f to find the line named "bUseThreadedAI=0" and change that to "bUseThreadedAI=1". Now, press the Enter key to create a new line, and type in "iNumHWThreads=2"

    Now just save the file and launch Fallout 3. If this doesn't work, let me know.

    I don't take advice from obvious bronies. I hate them, including you.

    My FO3 was crashing a while back, and when I did that it fixed it. But if you are going to be stubborn and not take the advice, then you are just going to have to deal with your FO3 crashing.

    Don't be an ignorant prick just because you hate bronies. Whether the advice was from a brony (obvious or not) or some random user, you shouldn't just blow it off because you have your own personal issues with anyone that's a brony. Quite frankly, I would have given you the same advice, and I'm not a big fan of bronies either. Not all of them are annoying jack-offs like you seem to think, so saying you refuse to take advice from someone just because they are brony is plain ignorant.
    Not as serious as you'd think.

    If you don't give a fuck, then don't bother requesting help in the future. Regardless of who the advice comes from, you'd be better off just Googling your problems if you're just going to act like an ass when you're given a legitimate piece of advice.

    Then again, you're probably going to respond in the exact same way you did in your previous post. Take care, kid.

    So being 21 years old means I am a child?

    Age means nothing when your maturity and/or behavior say otherwise, pal. You were given an actual fix for your problem, and your immediate response was pretty much acting like a kid and telling them to fuck off just because they are a brony. If you haven't noticed by now (which you obviously haven't), people are less likely to help someone that's going to act like an ass towards someone else for no actual reason (someone being associated with a certain group, such as TheRoidyPegasus being a brony, isn't an actual reason).

    Case and point; don't be an ass if you are asking others for help, otherwise you won't be getting it any time soon in the future.
