    I'm getting intermittent freezing now that I'm very far into it. Didnt have any freezing or ctd for the first 10+ hours. Pain in the arse. Vault 112 inside small houses was every 5 mins or so. Its settled back down to once every few hours now, but this game is in need of patching. Loads of peeps with same issues as me too. Unfortunately for allot of people this issue doesn't seem to often come to light until many hours under way.

    i agree, i had loads of issues last night, every time i hit ESC or the menu it would go back to windows and couldnt ALT+TAB back or switch in taskmanager, then that stupid crappy POS live wouldnt connect several times, hopefully theyll have a patch soon at least for the back to desktop pressing ESC

    _____ has worn off. is an effect from a food or device you use or anything that has effected you. (ie: you eat psycho you get +25% more damage or when you use stealth boy you turn invisible/transparent, when the effects wears off it will let you know. Also if you sleep for a couple of hours you will get well rested (+10% more exp) and when that wears off it will tell you).

    the +1Rad/sec is radiation you come in contact with per second, eating edibles with +rad or steping into a ditch of barrels or going into water will also give you radiation. The higher your radiation level the more effects it will have on your characters stats... once you reach 1000 radiation you will die, you can use radaway or rad-x to reduce your radiation... theres some side quests where they want you to be radioactive and you can get a perk where having radiation will automatically heal your limbs :)... whenever you drink radiated water your hp will go up but your stats will go down so just keep a look out or use radiation resistant gear/items

    These settings below, from FALLOUT.INI, may have some effect on frame rate, I'm not sure as they're new settings. I'll have to test them. There are a few other similar settings with "FrameRate" or "FPS" in their label. Perhaps they are dynamic, does anyone have different values for these settings?

    iAutoViewHiFrameRate=40
    iAutoViewLowFrameRate=20

    Thanks for the info about Dogmeat plato, I think someone mentioned it before but I thought they were talking about dog meat. :D

    The crashing people are experiencing indoors has something to do with AA and Vsync I believe. With Vsync off, the game would crash very often.
    But with Vsync on and any type of AA I can play without any crashes like those with Vsync on.
    It's a shame the game is very jerky at times with Vsync, even if you use tripple buffering :(

    :edit: AA doesn't matter. With the 177.83, 177.92, 178.24 and 180.43, the game crashes a lot on my rig if I disable Vsync.....with or without aa

    I might experiment with Vsync and .ini file to see what I can find. I don't seem to have many problems on high settings but when I run Ultra I get the odd crash. I'll try and see what setting changes from High to Ultra have an effect on stability, apart from AA and Vsync.

    I also thought perhaps self shadows may have some effect, but I'm not sure. Back later, need to tweak now.

    Umm... I've only been playing for 20 hours..

    Did anyone finish the main quest yet?

    I found it very short... Now the games over?! wth?

    Good thing I saved a while back... I ended up going through 3 different endings, after playing around a little at the end... but yeah, I didn't even get to explore everywhere... Guess I'm a daddy's boy? Project purity....short lived!!!

    exzeth - Earlier in the thread it says "Don't Finish the main Quest". You should do all the side quests and explore the wastelands instead. There is so much more to do than the main quest.

    I think the crashes people are experiencing are due to memory leak or a memory error of some kind. I messed around with the settings but could not find a setting that caused it. From reading many comments people have made, it looks as though once settings are pushed up to a certain point, memory fills up rapidly and over she goes. It could be HDD caching, swapfile, or RAM/GRAM issue. I'm going to try and narrow it down.

    I'm thinking at present Fallout 3, instead of running crap when you turn up the settings too far, it CTD instead. But it could be a memory leak, as it does start to fill up memory rather quick once you go over the default settings for your spec. I'm rather itching to get back to a little game time so I haven't studied it in depth yet. I'll try disabling/enabling HDD caching and monitoring memory and pagefile usage later and see if my guess is right.

    Please excuse me now, I'm starting to get anxious and will develop involuntary muscle twitching if I don't play soon.

    ah ha ha hahahahh.......

    If you beat the game under 20 hours then you did't play Fallout 3 right, with the side mission's Fallout 3 is very long which i like.

    Well, the ending took me by surprise, it was totally unexpected.. You're just playing along, then all of a sudden cutscene.

    Not to give anything away... you'll see when you get there..I guess..:3eyes:

    hi people i dont get stutter but i get crashes indoors and i have found what i believe to be a solution.

    i used a nocd crack as the game doesnt need a dvd to run any way i heard that it worked so i used it and now i have been playing for two days crash free, total of approx 6hours.


    so try it...

    For both beings set in a post nuclear apacolypse, Fallout 3 is very different from STALKER
    - Walking down dimly lit stairway in STALKER: oh ****. oh ****. oh ****. what the hell was that!?
    - Walking down dimly lit stairway in Fallout 3: *whistle* *VATS super mutant with shotgun, blowing into 100 pieces* *keep on whistling*

    But I am loving Fallout 3 though I must take a break now that I've beaten it before going back a couple of hours and doing all of the side quests.

    V.A.T.S is intended to be an advantage as it's unlikely you would survive very long in such an environment without it, also as mentioned many times it's primarily an RPG not an FPS like stalker.
