Got a problem in your Fallout game? Post it right here, in this thread. cake.gif First post is a problem which I solved. I can't tell you all how ecstatic this makes me.

FALLOUT 3 CRASH TO DESKTOP WHOA #1

So this is a bit of troubleshooting for those who might also have this same problem. It's about a very specific CTD I I kept having: crashes at Megaton's gate. Urgh. Maybe the solution below will also take care of all the random CTDs I keep having... usually they'll occur anywhere form a half-hour or later into playtime.

Go into the main Fallout 3 folder and right-click on FalloutLauncher. Maybe you'll need to left-click and then right-click. There should be a large panel which pops up. Select Properties, and then the Compatibility tab.

Select "Run This Compatibility Mode For" and then choose whichever operating system in the scroll-bar. I've got Windows 8. Click Apply, Click OK.

That is all. smile.gif I've walked my character in and out of Megaton like seven times now.

That's so crazy though, Khajiit. All those people suddenly lost their clothes due to just that one change! WTF.

Yeah, specifically the caravan merchant guards (including Crow himself), and the water parasite sitting outside of Megaton. I haven’t been that far afield with this character so I’m not really sure how widespread the issue is.
