I found a way to get the installer for fallout to work in windows xp.

Had same problem when i tried install Fallout again.

Make a shorcut to the installer on the cd, edit the properties for the shortcut, set the compatibility(sp) mode to windows 95, then run the shortcut.

I never got to finish F2. I thing it is boring compared to F1. Now I am waiting for F3 and a potential upgrade.
No,no,no! :blink: Fallout 2 is ten times larger than Fallout 1. Don't tell me that you didn't even managed to fix the tanker?........and that you didn't see last animation?........ and ending story (which is different regarding on how much quests you completed)?

If you are going to play Fallout 2, better patch it up first. You can find unofficial patches at
http://www.nma-fallout.com/forum/dload.php...egory&cat_id=16

The version 1.05 contains all previous patches, and here's how you install it:

1. Install the game into, let's say C:\Fallout2.
2. Unpack the 1.05 patch into the C:\Fallout2 overwriting everything. You don't have to install 1.02, 1.03 or any other version, it's all in the 1.05 (read the 1.05readme.txt file).
3. If you got the US version run the game as normal. If you got the UK one, unpack the uk.zip into C:\Fallout2 overwriting everything (you will add the kids and the proper .exe file this way).

I hope this is helpful.

You don't need to make a shortcut, just right-click on the installer-file in the Windows Explorer and set the compatibility - it will stay that forever then (probably saved somewhere in the Windows-folders).

Oh man, both Fallout and Fallout 2 were classic games although I liked Fallout 2 a little better because it was less linear and there were so many more options. I mean, the shear immensity of the game, there was just so much to do, it was incredible. The atmosphere, the characters, the plot, it was all just so awesome.

Fallout 2 rules!!!! Did anyone noticed how many different endings there are? Every time you complete some quests, game ends in different way. That's cool! k:
I remember playing it and I thought that I did everything right but in the ending animation almost all of the citys ended up distroyed by Vault City. Damn, I hate the first citizen. Fallout 1 and 2 are one of the best games ever.

Even if they are abandonware, I guess both games would be CD-size or even larger, so the download could take forever... <_<
