Remove Fallout 3 from Steam (Help)

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I bought Fallout 3: GOTY from steam during the sale and was wondering if there was a way to play it without using steam.

It blocks me from geting achievements for my xbox account if I use the console codes. I searched the internet and it said this was only because it is the steam version and if it was the normal version it wouldent block the achievements.

That can't be right because both the steam and retail versions have GFWL

You could always just run the exe inside the steamapps folder. That runs the program independently of steam. make sure steam isnt running. thats what i do with CoD4 so ppl dont kick me off servers for having the steam overlay running(console hashes think its a hack)

Yes but if you download Fallout 3 from steam, it blocks the GFWL achievements if you use the console codes. I want a way to prevent this.

Thanks for this. But is there any way to have the game 100% independent from steam? I can't run the launcher to check the .esp files for my DLC/Mods without steam.

Is there a way to get the game from another source without illegal downloads since I already own a key? I dont want to have to buy a install disk just to avoid steam.

Technically speaking, you could legally download the game from a naughty source. You have already bought a key.

You should be able to run without steam with FalloutModManager and manage your mods just fine...even better than the vanilla checkbox IMHO.
