  1. Is the game patched?
  2. yes i just recently downloaded the new patch 1.7 i think it was?
  3. Do you use ffdshow on your PC?
  4. no should i be?i use cccp would that make a difference??
  5. ffdshow can cause problems with Fallout 3. Try to run the game in windowed mode and see if it freezes. Also try to run the game with onboard sound.
  6. cool thnx i'll give it a shot now ;)
  7. nope still freezes :(

    Do you have any components overclocked? Apparently FO3 doesn't appreciate such technical shenanigans.
    As seen here:
