Works with vista.

Hello gentlemen, I have seen a lot of complaints about texture mods not working with vista or not working at all. Here is a solution , step by step , to solve the problem . 1 : Download the skin and open it the zip. In it , there should be 2 or 3 files - textures - meshes - readme. 2 : Put the textures and meshes in your "C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Fallout 3\Data" folder. 3 : Into the readme, there should have lines , looking like this ; "textures/weapons/2handautomatic/1stpersonassaultrifle01.dds textures/weapons/2handautomatic/1stpersonassaultrifle02.dds" Copy and paste these in your C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Fallout 3\Data\Archiveinvalidation.txt folder. You can add as many of these as you want in the Archiveinvalidation.txt . They will not collide. 4 : There are now 3 files you must open. These are : -Fallout_default.ini In your main Fallout 3 folder. -Fallout.ini and Falloutprefs.ini in your "documents\mygames\fallout3" folder. Open those 3 files , press CTRL+F and type "binvalidateolderfiles = 0" and press next. Once you find the line, replace the 0 by a 1. And then everything should be workful! :) NOTICE THAT IF YOUR .ZIP CONTAINS A .ESP YOU NEED TO LAUNCH IT USING FOMM (timeslip) FOUND HERE : http://timeslip.chorrol.com/fomm.html Put it in your fallout 3 folder and launch it. Simple.

    Well nah, it's not really a tuto, just a solution for people having problems.

    And FOMM is better than data files because most of the .esps won't collide using it, and you can create your own :)
