I mean seriously whats up with this game??!!

2 weeks, runs perfectly fine
Then BOOM cant travel to the Washington monument area without it crashing to desktop. And I mean literally just that area when I used to ALL the time.
2 more weeks of not being able to turn into quests and just wandering around, friggin Pip Boy sound doesn't work anymore and neither does the NPC voices all of a sudden.

My god this has to be the single biggest failure and RIPOFF of PC games when it comes to implementation on consumer PC's.

Bethesda support is non existent, 1 patch yet with no fixes for me at least, forums are flooded with people with the same problems on PC's. Tried tons of fixes.

Anyone having similar issues?

i'm also having random crash to desktop, it doesn't happen if i stay in megaton but once i leave and walk around, a few minutes and it will crash to desktop

it is a annoying problem that makes it hard to finish the side quest , and I really wanted to do the quest where you return to vault 101

currently looking for savegame files since i crash before I can activate it

Fallout 3 is not the main suspect here.

If this were even any other software package that had been good for two weeks then starting bugging out, the recommendation would be to look at what has changed. You may have a driver issue (gfx driver update?), a hardware issue (check cpu and gpu temps [CPUID Harware Monitor], full memory test, prime95 etc), a problem with your saved game (try an earlier saved game, then try washington monument), an OS issue (any windows updates around the time the problem appeared?), a DirectX issue (any updates, and new game installs around the time it appeared). And others I can't think of right now.

My point is, it would help me and others, and yourself, if you took a step back, stopped bashing on a superb pc game and developer, and thought about it rationally.

If all that fails, backup your saved games (google for the correct folder if you don't know your way around too well), uninstall the game, re-install the game, replace your saved games back into the correct folder.

If that fails, reinstall gfx drivers and/or check your temps as above.

Good luck, the game is well worth finishing, at least once.

On my second way through, almost shed a tear for megaton ;)

A friend's "high-end" ATI crossfire, quad core, Vista 64 bit machine had constant issues with the game. (He eventually isolated the problem to his sound drivers, and he had to install older beta drivers to fix the problem.)

I couldn't install the game on my wife's pc because the Secur-rom refused to allow the game to install on either of her Lite-on drives. (Replaced one with an Asus branded drive, installed and runs fine.)

I couldn't get the game to run correctly on my 680i lt MB, 8600 GT SLI system. Tried new video drivers, didn't work. Played on my wife's system until I reformatted and reinstalled my system. (Time for it anyway.) Same Windows patches, DX version, etc. as before. (Nvidia driver install to newest version fresh.) Corrected my problem.

Another friend cannot alt+tab without crashing the game. (He doesn't alt+tab.)

We all suffer from the occasional "game crash when attempting to exit the game from menu." Not a real issue, we were already leaving the game. (Just requires a system reboot to properly clear the failed executable prior to playing the game again.)

Welcome to PC gaming. And, yes, the game does have difficulties...just like they all do these days.

I got through fallout3 with minimal issues, however issues in this game are so common i'd be inclined to believe its a QA problem
January 9, 2009 4:53:41 PM

Like Oblivion before it, Fallout 3 will find ANY instabilities in your machine.
If you can run Prime95 for 24 hours without error, and Fallout 3 crashes for you, come back and complain about the game.
If not, fix your machine.

i have an xbox 360 and tryed multiple copys of the game and i freezes at the exact same point every time it won't let me go to the area out side of magaton and a lot of other areas
January 14, 2009 8:57:56 PM

My crashes (around the Washington monument area) started as soon as i upgraded my Nvidia drivers to 181.20, i have read reports of 180.xx drivers causing problems too so I'm rolling back to 178.24

Basically, from what I've gathered, the main problem can perhaps be blamed on BethSoft's perennial denial that they actually need a wide-ranging, rigorous testing regime. As a veteran player of their games, (my first game from them is some 13 years old now) I feel that I'm actually in a position to say this, regardless of others' opinions on them. This actually plagues a lot of other developers, especially when they making games on consoles first, then porting them to the PC; they fail to take into account the wide range of PC hardware, and as a result, a select portion of gamers, who had exactly what was expected, have no problems, while others suffer game-breaking problems. I recall this happened with, for example, the first Knights of the Old Republic game.

Basically, I believe the main issues here derive from the DRM included in the game, audio hardware & drivers, and other media codecs, drivers, etc. When BethSoft tested the PC version, they apparently only opted to use a largely uniform setup of hardware and software; an incredibly common mistake most developers make when making PC software. So again, as a result, anyone with setups that DO resemble what they tested the game with, will wonder what others are complaining about, since the developers found and removed virtually all the bugs that would occur with their setup. But meanwhile, those with other kinds of setups, with different types of hardware, different drivers, or different software, will find problems that BethSoft never tested to find, and as a result, they know nothing about. This is why their 'fan' community invariably knows far more about their own games than the makers themselves do.

Downgrading to Nvidia 178.24 drivers fixed most of my problems. Thanks for letting us know about the new patch!
January 16, 2009 11:08:26 PM

I just started and have experienced the same glitch on both starts... tedious to recreate characters just to try out the bugpatch... walk/run toggle disappeared... now I'm sneaking around on eggshells when i want to be running and jumping... I have waited for YEARS for this game... I could have waited a few more months if that's what it would have taken to get it straight... criminal. Boo, Bethesda... two thumbs up your @$$.

Its the game; issues like this are all over their forums. Its always the same spots that crash, and everywhere else, the game is fine.

I sued Bethesia earlier in the month. As far as I was concerned, the game was defective for my setup (tested on fresh installs of XP32 and Vista64, bare drivers, yada yada yada), and demanded the game be exchanged for the $60 i paid for is (as required for defective products under federal law).

They tried to throw out the case, but after I demonstrated the game not working on a clean install of windows (bare setups with 6 diffrent graphic drivers, and with diffrent grpahic cards), the judge refused. They them offered (and I accpeted) $100 to go away. (Heaven forbid they're responsable for every piece of software they ever release :pfff:  ).

My $.02

I played through FO3 on my PS3 and I loved the game so much that I bought it for my PC so I could play the DLC. I had crashes galore from the get go. Hence, I spent hours of my time getting this game to work on my PC and read all of the postings, installed alternate drivers, blah blah blah. (If I have to play though the beginning of this game one more time....) I finally got things running well enough when today I was informed of an update through GFWL. So, I figured an update couldn't hurt and I installed the update. Crashed when I loaded my saved game. Tears. Anger. Forum posting.

Anyone else have issues after this latest update? Apparently, it adds achievements for The Pitt.

Ah well sorry your like 1000 other people out there that think if you don't have a problem everyone else's are completely bogus. The PC forums at their site are completely loaded through the roof with problems, fallout3 is absolutely the main suspect.

I don't think you have any idea what you are talking about and are simply looking for a reason to argue. I can run it for more than 24 hours without error, I actually forgot I left it on before and it ran for around 35.

March 25, 2009 1:52:13 PM

I sued BS (my new nickname for them) as a result of them refusing my claim of a defective product (and won) a few months back. The game is a mess.

I STILL can't walk to daddy at the start of the game without a C2D, even after clean installs of XP32/Vista64, every GFX driver I can think of, on a barebones system. Hell, the 360 DLC was pulled due to bugs, and it seems the PC DLC has major issues to...
April 18, 2009 3:09:03 AM

Anyone who says this game doesn't have issues is a LIAR.

- Unable to get out of tons of places, spaces behind barrels, shelves, potholes on bridges. Can't fast travel in some places cause the game thinks I'm falling. On xbox 360 have to reload. This happens alot in Oblivion so you think they would have solved it. At least on the PC I was able to use TCL. Damn, I used that alot.

- GNR locked on me at some point for some unknown reason. Had to go up top on the right side and pick the very hard lock to get back in with karma loss.

- All the booze in my fridge and all the extra skill books I was collecting and saving in Megaton Upstairs desk (in case future DLC increases the skill level cap past 100) disappeared when both containers were reset at some point. Never had this happen before. Forced me back about 2 hours of play to find a save where they were still there.

- Doc Hoff dead in two games early on for some unknown reason. Also Lucky Harith fell out of the damn sky near Megaton after Roe informed me he had fallen off the map. More like through the map...

- Freezes and more freezes, seemingly at times I have not saved for awhile.

- Quests breaking, Temple of the Union (Head of state quest) is a prime example.

- Both sound and graphics occasionally flip out. Ragdolling glitches and things/corpses will bounce, fly around, often freezing the game.

- Companions disappearing. I had this happen so often I don't use them during main quest and will fire them. Had Jericho disappear with no message as to what happened to him after firing him near Big Town. I always fire companions on the spot of wherever they stay when you let them go now.

Try uninstalling Gamer OSD for your Asus graphics card because that sovles the constant crashing issue a lot! I used to have an Asus 8600GT 512mb graphics card, but I decided to upgrade to a Zotac 9600GT. It doesn't come with any software other than the drivers, my game rarely crashes.
April 18, 2009 5:55:23 AM

is this game really that buggy? i would still install this game in the weekend. Fallout 2 is the last game i played in the series so i need to catch up on a lot of things...

That happed because you have corrupted savegames, star a new game and you will be enable to travel to the Washington monument area without crashing to desktop. Always keep all your previous save so if something happened (corrupted) you can return back to a previous savegame with out having to star a new game.
May 3, 2009 4:13:06 PM

I finshed the game and never patched it one time. It froze up on me a couple of times but I attribute this to the weak gfx card I was using at the time. Nothing I couldn't get out of by going to the task manager. The thing is to save often.

STILL CAN'T CLEAR THE WALK TO DADDY SCREEN!

Sad BS, just sad. Their "tech support" is horrendous ("Less Virtual Memory!!!")

I will never buy one of their games again.
June 2, 2009 6:50:23 PM

i know why it crashes on the daddy scene, it is the controls... if u reassign other keys that is different to the default (eg. make the letter 'L' as reload rather than the game's default) then it crashes. to avoid this crash you must use the default keys (i know its a goddamn pain).
June 5, 2009 2:31:25 PM

It's why I ended up cheating my way to the end. I got tired of the disappearing NPCs and what not.

The game was fun, but could have been so much more if they had spent the time for quality testing.

And the latest patch made things worse for me! The graphics engine used to run decently but after I got the patch to include GFWL, most of the time I entered VATs, the screen just went black and I couldn't see what I was shooting at except for the names.
June 5, 2009 4:05:24 PM

Never had a single issue with this game.
Plays great on my PC.

Cheers
June 5, 2009 4:20:59 PM

Still can't walk to daddy...

I hit the game with a sledgehammer yesterday, and uninstalled it completely. No more crashing for me!
June 23, 2009 7:19:36 PM

with me wen i download and install it.it works perfect but when i open a new game BAM :fou:  it said its fixed it then it does the same it is sooooooooooo annoying i love it on my x360 but i want to use cheats and mods cus they look and sound so cool :bounce:  but i tryed it again and again i tryed unistalling it then installin it but nothing now im tempted to wipe my computer see if it does any good why cant it be simple :cry: 
June 23, 2009 9:39:15 PM

Still can't get past daddy. Its beyond sad at this point.

Something I found that was interesting:

Quote:
I have found the primary issues causing the CTD and other crashes. I’ve sent 3 e-mails to Bethesda and no responses. My Computer Science Engineering department took a shot it. I purchased 320 copies and gave them the weekend to figure it out. Here are some of the results;

1.) Fallout 3 Installer installs an older version on C++ Visual 2005 that appears to affect the way the vidcard driver communicates with the game.

2.) Fallout 3 Installer installs a Beta release of DOTNETFX3.0 (.NET Framework 3.0). For users of .NET Framework 3.0 SP1 or even SP2 (Service Pack of the Framework not the OS), upon restarting their system (when changes take place), their game will be quite unstable.
Users of .NET 3.5 or Vista should have even more random crashes.

3.) Fallout 3 Installer installs a non Plug’n Play DRM device manager (not driver but a manager) that doesn’t like any 3rd party codecs (ie K-Lite, WinAMP, etc) and will usually see a CTD when a Hardware codec comes online. This usually occurs when interactive audio (client controlled speech) initializes (ie baby walking to daddy).

4. Fallout 3 Installer installs SecuROM Root kit as well as 8 hidden non Plug’n play virtual drivers. Owners with more than one Optical drive or a sata drive may encounter random drive access issues. Also, Imaging software or any software that may use its own ASPI drive (ie NERO, Roxio, Daemon, ISO, etc.) will have one of the 8 virtual drivers causing the system to do a random CTD. Reason why clients using a cracked EXE don’t experience the same volume of CTD as those who bought the game. However, the SecuROM root kits are still on the system and active. Once the SecuROM is also purged from the system, 60% of the crashes disappear. Unfortunately, they must remain on the system in order to play the game as they are part of the EULA.

5.) Fallout 3 also has its own built in MP3 codec coupled to its DRM to protect MP3’s on the DVD (in game). Unfortunately, the codec was never tested fully with hardware decoders like those of an X-FI. This can be varied by the lack of a hardware audio switch in the game options.

6.) Fallout 3 has 14 memory leaks that we found. Most are small, but there are a few that are quite large. Some areas of the map, the memory counter just spins at over 100 MB/sec. Most memory leaks are around 5 to 10 MB/sec.

7.) Fallout 3 video graphics buffer needs to be adjustable in the options and an automatic cache purger installed for cards over 512 MBs as well as linked buffers from SLI and crossfire cards. I’ve seen areas where names on the screen start to disappear and all you see are “Input Text Here” instead of V.A.T.S. or range or etc. The cache doesn’t get dumped on some maps. Most games dump their cache when a map reload occurs. This can be noticed when fast reloads occurs from map changes. Most users will just see their graphics card run out of memory (CTD and stuttering).

8.) Most games were fault free with a basic XP Pro SP2 reload, and only Critical updates and latest stock drivers. Installed the game and played it error free for nearly 4 days. Upon a system restart, lots of errors showed up. This means that Fallout 3 significantly changes the operating system. Far beyond reasonable accounts as all you can do with the system in not to play MP3’s, watch movies, make a CD or DVD, or play other games.

Hopefully, Bethesda will address the issues more than 100,000 people are having.


If even half of this is true, Bethesda overtakes EA as worst programmers on gods green earth.
June 24, 2009 7:19:06 PM

Hi,
I play two fairly recent games Far Cry 2 and Fallout 3, which are installed on a very clean Vista installation. I run a GTX 260/AMD PII x3 720/DDR2-800.

I would agree that Fallout is less stable than Far Cry2. Maybe FC2(v1.0.2) has crashed once, whereas Fallout (v1.5) does it far more frequently.

However, I found a way to significantly reduce the crash frequency on Fallout 3
- Initially, since my hardware seemed to support it, I ran 'Ultra Quality' at 1920x1200. The game seemed to crash several times per game session (save often....)
- I switched to 'High Quality' at 1920x1200. I must say that graphics degradation is hardly if at all noticeable and the FPS is better And guess what? The game crashes maybe every other game session, so I still need to save often, but it is less of a pain.

My guess, as a software developer myself, is that the programming deficiencies in Fallout 3 are in the area when bottle necks in GPU feed or similar are present. If the feed is good, as in 'High Quality', the bugs don't show as often. Again, a guess....

Everyone, try to step down a notch on the graphics settings and see if there's a difference

July 4, 2009 5:07:31 AM

After much troubleshooting, I have come to realize the most likely culprit with Fallout 3 CTDs are...THREADING errors! Bethesda... please learn how to write CORRECT parallel code!

Change these settings in fallout.ini:

[General]
bUseThreadedBlood=0
bUseThreadedMorpher=0
bBorderRegionsEnabled=1
bDisableHeadTracking=0

bUseThreadedTempEffects=0
bUseThreadedParticleSystem=0

Peteghul, that's a good one. I did see somewhere that someone suggested to run fallout on max 2 cores, I haven't tried it though.

Everyone, if you have missed it, there is a 1.6 patch to be downloaded.
It feels like the number of freezes have decreased somewhat after installing this one, but it still happens....

::end rant::


Yes, I'm sick and tired of Fallout 3. I'm getting far more frustrations and anger than pleasure. For the past six month I've had little pleasure playing. Its getting worse with time. Games are getting very complex and therefore more bugs. Companies are in a hurry to get their product out, specially around Christmas. Before that, I had problems with a Ubisoft game. Its also impossible to wait for bugs to be fix before purchasing because they just don't fix it. They are even getting awards for buggy games and that is not helping the mater. In the past it never got this bad. I'm seriously thinking of abandoning PC games and in the process I will be saving big money for renewing cpu, graphics, memory, etc. Stay just for the console. I know that games for the PC have nicer graphics but just look at the cost, time, frustrations, money and hardly no pleasure.
September 1, 2009 7:03:41 PM

I have had a few crashes here and there, but over 200+ hours of game play, noting that has been cause for concern. Maybe it is the combination of hardware in your setups that cause this or that and bad programming...? Seems fine to me.
November 10, 2009 9:25:11 PM

I ran into random and frequent CTD failures for the past month or so. After eliminating various alernatives (like new Nvidia Drivers, like installing GOTY versin etc. : I figured this is maybe an overclocking issue, I was running my E8500 oc'd at 3.66 Ghz and had the memory overclocked off 800Mhz to around 975Mhx (1066 spec PC 8500).

I switched back to default speeds 3.16 processor and 1066 for memory. Well lo and behold FO3 is stable and running sweetly and no crashes. I imagine a lot of you out there are running overclocked, so maybe this is the cause for many of the crashes.

Sorry about that, a "cut & paste" error. What I meant to say was that the simplest way to reset defaults is to go into the BIOS on bootup (by pressing the Delete key) and choosing Safe Settings saving and exiting. On regoot the default CPU speed will display, howeber I think it was the memory settings that were the culprit -the reboot will have sorted those too- fingers crossed. FO3 has not crashed in the 3 weeks since I reset.



January 20, 2010 2:00:19 AM

YES....FALLOUT 3 is the biggest ripoff ever made! WE NEED TO BOYCOTT Bestheda Softworks!!!!!!!!!! They have, without ANY doubt, made the most DEFECTIVE game EVER!!!! You are not alone. We should unite, and all of us take the jerks to court to get our money back.
