    Ahrg, i just had to patch it to 1.7!! Damn, i thought Steam would keep the game up to date!!

    Btw i just found out it only works, if i start the game with Fallout3ng.exe
    If i start with Fallout3.exe, Steam or FalloutLauncher.exe i get the same problems as discribed above...
    just in case anyone else has the same problem...

    This is really starting to piss me off, im trying to get the DLCs running for 3 days now, nothing works.

    Here is the problem: Downloaded the game form steam, aktivated the DLCs in the menu and played the game.
    As i left the vault i got a msg that the broken steel DLC was loaded and the level limit was raised to 30. But thats all, no radio signal from the other DLCs.
    So i traveled to the point lookout ferryplace and found just many red <!> where the ferry should be. i could talk to the ferrycaptain, but without sound.
    Similar situation at the "the pitt" radiotower and train tunnel, missing meshes etc, no pump cart i could use to reach the pitt.

    So the DLCs seem to load just partly.

    What i tried:
    - redownloaded an installed the game 3 times, DLC *.bsa files in the datafolder seem to have the correct size
    - used ArchiveInvalidation Invalidated.exe (although the ArchiveInvalidationInvalidated!.bsa in the data folder is empty ...?)
    - started the game with FOMM

    I don't know what to do anymore...
