All right, I'm playing through Fallout 2 having a grand old time. My character is Level 26 and things are good. I've gotten the GECK and been back to Arroyo. I decide to wait for a while before going to San Francisco and completing the game. I go exploring and uncover about 93% of the map. While doing this about three years in game time pass from the beginning of the game until I get to San Francisco. Just before getting there I run into some aliens and completely slaughter them. Unfortunately I also get badly irradiated. So before I can reach San Francisco I die suddenly. No big deal, figured it was just from the radiation so I reload my game from right after I killed all of them. This time I get to San Fran and take some rad-away so I'm perfectly healthy. I do a few quests but then when I try to rest, I die suddenly at 1600 hours exactly. I have full health before resting and am not radiated or poisoned. So what the hell? I can't rest and I can't leave San Fran because at exactly 1600 I fall over dead. I thought at first that it might be a time limit, but from what I've heard there isn't one. Has this happened to anyone else or is there anything I can do?
