    I just finished the steam version of fallout 3 :clap:

    I just found out that I have to get the expansions through the piece of mutant dung which is called "Games For Windows Live" as for some reason the discs are "incompatible" :roll: with the steam version.

    Has anyone had any experience with making steam version work with the disc versions of the addons? Or is this stupid corporate stuff so I buy off GFWL?

    As you can extract the .esm and other files from the GFWL folders and put them into main fallout 3 /data folder (meaning GFWL doesn't need to be running), would it be possible to do the same with the discs if they refuse to install into the steam version?

    I know there's lots like me who don't want to go through the hassle of Windows Live, so any help would be appreciated! :D
