    Hi ppl. iv been comin to NMA for a very long time but is my first post and have just bought Fallout3 after waiting about nine years for the chance to eventually play it but after installing the game without a hitch and getting as far as starting a new game it crashes... every time. Iv installed ffdshow and excluded F3 from both audio and video, am running it on the lowest settings, have tried patching it to no avail, even installed a fan made fix which did nothing and am completely out of ideas.

    if anyone knows how to get round this problem and could help me out i would really appreciate it...

    iv jus gotta say as well that im pretty annoyed that bethesda would even release a game that has as many glitches and bugs as iv read about over the past few days.

    my specs are up to scratch to run the game, i do have an integrated chipset (intel GMA 4500 hdm) but coz iv loaded up on ram does have 1.2 gig of available graphics memory.

    thanks

    Are you running any mods? Do you have the program checked as "run as administrator?"
