    The Russian dialogue is a known problem. His text file is translated, but it doesn't appear for some reason we can't figure out.

    The talking head is new to me. That's probably due to the CE, since I don't remember him having a talking head at all.

    I don't use the "crazy edition" though. It's probably somebody else's talking head assigned to that guy.

    The game keeps crashing to desktop whenever the PC dies. I've only seen the actual Fallout death screen once at the beginning of the game.

    Not sure if this is still active, but I've run up against a game-breaking bug.

    Right at the start. Every time I boot up the game, I find myself stuck off the map.
    Can move around off the map to my heart's content, but can't get into the actual game.

    Tried:
    • Clean reinstall (uninstall Fallout 2, delete all files).
    • Playing old-school.
    • Different characters.

    There's a Moo, Moo, Moo, floating text, in your screen. My guess is You've probably messed up your Nevada installation.

    You see, the installation file asks to provide it with fallout folder, but it should install in a subfolder inside the "Fallout 2" folder. This is most porbably due to installig both games in C:\Program Files\ or C:\Program Files(x86)\
    those directories are default installation folder for most programs, however, they're a no-no for classic Fallout games.

    You see 'Fallout' and 'Falout 2' were originally released waaay back when windows did not secure C:\Program Files folder from program and user acces. However since at least windows Vista "Program Files" and "Program Files(x86)" are guarded by windows, and prevent certain 'stunts' some of the Fallout mods do, such as High Resolution Patch (known as HRP or f2-res.dll) or Sfall (placed in ddraw.dll). so in order for Sfall and HRP to work correctly you must reinstall the game to a different folder such as C:\Games or D:\<whatever> just *not* into "Program Files" or "Program Files(x86)"

    Installing the mod in its own folder and separate from the Fallout 2 Steam Folder fixed the issue.
