Fallout 3 FAIL!(Help needed)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
ok so I just built a pc for myself(sig rig). It worked and played games so well my roomate bought the SAME parts from newegg not even 5 days after I. The only change he made was not using 8gb's ram, he opted for 4 instead.

The problem is my computer is fast as snot when doing anything, his loads a little slower, and will crash Fallout3 at random. on my system fallout3 crashed the first time I loaded it up, after that I have spent many many many hours in the game crash free.

He has turned off evga persion, still crashes, all of his temps are spot on with my system so nothings over heating, the game will just crash. Please help, I have searched the interwebs and found it to be a really crapy game when it comes to crashing, a million people see to have the problem all for diff reasons. Thanks

I had played the game for several hours (when it came out) without issues but I know about the crashes. Install the latest official patches and turn off AA and lower AF.

Oh don't you worry. The Crash Fairy WILL visit sooner or later. Enjoy what time you do get with it running good.

I would say it's all b/c of the game. Fallout 3 crashes like Amy Winehouse after a coke binge. Consider yourself luck if you have been playing crash free.

yup it crashes on every platform. My ps3 copy is worse than my PC copy. And yes it is completely random, I could go for 6 hours without a crash, and then after reloading later may get 20mins into it. You learn to live with it after a while, and thankfully it is an amazing game so you can forgive it a little.
