    Hello everyone,
    I am currently trying to run Fallout 2 with sfall on windows 98.
    Whenever i Start the game , i get the "could not load directx" -error.

    As soon as i remove Ddraw.dll, everything works fine.

    Same happens on win95.

    So is there any Sfall Version compatible with win95/98 ?
    I need at least 2.0c (remove time limit/ alternate apperance)

    Thanks ;)

    The last version of sfall that supports Win9x is 1.47. You can get it by installing killap's unofficial patch, which is recommended.

    EDIT: AFAIR, old sfall only works on Win98 not Win95. At least it didn't work on my Win95 OSR2 VM two years ago.

    Thanks for the reply ;)

    I tried sfall from the "win95/98" Folder of the unofficial patch, i still get the error...
    However, i got my appearance Mod running without sfall (put files in Data -> art -> critters).
    Now i still want to get rid of the time limit , can that be done by editing the savegame ?

    You need to copy fallout2.exe from the unofficial patch too, because using sfall Win9x ver. requires some hex-editing on the exe, and the included exe has already been edited to load sfall.
    The 13-year time limit is an engine-side issue. Unless you just want to revert back the time, editing savegame won't solve the time limit.

    Allright, thanks , i think i got it working (shows ver. 1.02.34 or something similar in the main menu).
    As for the time limit, i set that to -3 in the ddraw.ini, this will solve my time-Problem, right?
