    Guide to Installing Fallout 1 and 2 

    Guide to Installing Fallout 1 and 2

    For those of who wish to enjoy the long overdue pleasure of playing Fallout 1 and 2 (I’m looking at you Phokal) or want to relive it, you may not be aware that, since those long ago times, some dedicated fans have taken it upon themselves to fix up unpatched bugs and even add deleted content. The mass of fan patches and mods can be bewildering, so here, I’ll present the instructions to getting what I believe to be the best and purest Fallout experience.

    (More …)

      Looks quite good. If you notice an update, you should edit/comment and append it here. :)

      I’ll have to use these when I play this soon. I also HAVE that picture you found. I printed it out as a test print of our Dye Sub printer one day and it’s framed. (I’ve had it since my apt on Adams St.)

      Yeah, that guy’s made two more Fallout-themed pictures. He’s pretty good.

      Awesome guide. Just wanted to mention that there is a new patch, 1.3.4, by TeamX, so get that one instead:

      I have an issue with the white label trilogy collection. It’s been a while since i abandoned fallout 2 (yes I will take the abuse) In fall out 1 my screen blacks out including the inventory bar and can only be uncovered with mouse movements like eraser in paint. I don’t remember this being a bug on the original. running on xp sp2 amd 6000 7600gt

      Did you set them to run in Compatibility Mode?

      Right click the shortcut or exe, go to the Compatibility Tab, and set to Run as Windows 98. You may need to turn on other/different combinations of options. Possibly 95. I don’t remember off hand.

      hey Jimbo, that exact same thing is happening to me, anyway around this?

      i tried what you said phokal, but still same problem.

        I’ll be reinstalling this on Vista 64 soon. I’ll let you know more precise steps then. I just remember hitting the exact same thing. Switching around compatibility options eventually fixed it. maybe the 16bit color one?

      Hey, all the links for the fallout one patches are dead, is the site down and this works usually, or are the URLs just old and the files are somewheres else or what… but they aren’t working for me i get a 404 on all of them… so hey…wtf?

    • Nick 12:33 am on February 15, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Yes these links are now dead.

      The GSP white label 3 in 1 version contains a patch for each game – are these patches enough to complete all 3 games? E.G F2 is patched to 1.02d from the disc files. Updating F2 to 1.02e from web based patches produces error where the game no longer recognises the CD.

      Any experience of completing or patching white label 3 in 1 set appreciated.

        Yup. Sorry about that. I need to clean this up a bit. For now, I’ll point everyone to GoG.com, which offers a patched up and supported version of the game.

        I’ll fix these links soon.

      nma-fallout.com has all the latest patches. Also, the White Label edition is the European version. If you have that one, you will also need to get the children patch.

      Step 1: Buy fallout 1,2 and tactics off steam for 19 bucks
      Step 2: Play.

      The fan patches actually add in a decent amount of content. They range from bug fixes, increased resolution, or cut material.

      Sadly all of the Fallout 1 links are 404 (even the “1.3.4, by TeamX”) and the Fallout 2 “Install the engine fixes (released February 22, 2008)” is, too. :(
      Please, refresh the links!

    Homeworld 2 Mod makes Jump to Lightspeed 

    SoaSE Warlords Mod Super Star Destroyer

    Homeworld 2 Mod makes Jump to Lightspeed

    This will be amazing. I’ve seen this HW2 mod in action, and having it brought into a realtime 4x environment should be something to be excited for.


    Dubbed “Warlords” (worst descriptive name ever?), this mod turned Homeworld 2 into a star wars fleet command game. It features dozens and dozens of canon ships from the movies, books, and comics. Each were intricately detailed, scaled, and with accurate weapons fire and soundfx.

    If he brings just the models over to Sins for an upgrade for fleet commands and skirmishes, it’ll be quite nice. If he gets the 4x part introduced, recreating the galactic conflict on a multi-system scale…well,… that’ll just be damn impressive.

    Perhaps a even a system seller. It is hard to build deserved hype for mods. So many go on to unfulfilled promises. Others don’t go on at all, and are never released in a stable, easy to install state. But some go on to be the best games ever released (see: Team Fortress, Counter Strike, Tower Defense (Warcraft3)). I’m sure there are others I’m missing that are considered classics of gaming. This guy has already released his first mod for HW2, so he’s done it before. Here’s hoping he doesn’t have school/a kid/job/life get in the way of destroying our free time.

    Good Luck, Warlords guy (EvilleJedi?).

      Just heard, they are planning a demo post 1.3 patch. So maybe in a month or so anyone can try the game (engine. system requirements.) without a purchase.

    • Cwohrle 3:40 pm on January 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Wait just a second..That is not HW2…That’s Clearly the GUI of SINS of a Solar Empire. I have that game..Love it, now I want the patch.

    • phokal 3:46 pm on January 23, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Yes. That was the point of the post. They are working on Warlords for Sins of a Solar Empire ;)

      Which, btw, is currently $20 at some brick&M stores like Target.
