Fallout 3 New Game Crash. Every time.

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Just got Fallout 3, system is up to date and listed in my sig. All of my drivers are up to date too. Installation went fine, and the launch program set the visual quality to maximum on everything.

I start the game, click 'New', and it crashes after displaying a loading screen for perhaps a second.

I read that this can be caused by FFDshow, which I didn't have. All the same, I downloaded and installed it and made fallout3.exe exempt in the video and audio configurations. Made no difference.

Oh, and I've also patched the game, but again to no avail. Is there anything I can do?

I've got the same problem as Phil_Boggild. Also tried everything, updated my entire pc, reinstall Fallout, installed the patch, edit the video and audio configurations with FFDshow, but nothing seems to happen. My system is different, so can anybody help me?

I've done everything you have told the others to do, Porky. But my game still will not work. I have patched and everything. Please help! I was looking forward to this game so much! My system specs are attached:


Thanks very much

Hey, I'm also having the same trouble even after I turned of the audio. I don't run FFDShow and do not have a separate audio card. Any help would be fantastic!

Try using driver cleaner pro to clean up your GPU drivers and then install the latest drivers. I was too lazy to uninstall the latest drivers and just installed the new ones on top a few days ago and I had to get driver cleaner pro cuz I didn't feel like scouring the registry myself.

Anyways, that should fix your problem. If not, then might wanna make sure your GPU is stable.

Also, you guys should fill out your specs a tad more. What type of CPU (not just core duo 2.4, but E2100, etc) and your PSU and whatnot.
