This program allows you to do the following to Games for Windows LIVE in Fallout 3:
  • Stop Games for Windows LIVE from running in Fallout 3 and prevent its dll files from loading which reduces the time it takes for Fallout 3 to startup.
  • Remove the "LIVE" button at the main menu.
  • Allow you to bind the "Home" key to whatever action you want.
  • Allow you to move all of your DLC's out of their "hidden" G4WL folder and into your Fallout 3 folder.


Important Notes\Issues
  • This will work with Fallout 3 v1.1 or higher.
  • If you disable Games for Windows LIVE and actually use it then all your saves will disappear, you can find them in your \My Documents\My Games\Fallout3\Saves\[name] simply move them to the Saves folder.
  • When G4WL is disabled any DLC's you have will cease to function so use the "Move DLC's" button to get your DLC's working again.


Version History
v1.2.2 (085\2009)
  • The fake xlive.dll will no longer be installed if Fallout 3 v1.0 is detected as it causes the game to freeze on exit.
  • Fixed *.bik files being placed into \Fallout 3\Data\ instead of \Fallout 3\Data\Video\, if you already run "Move DLC's" with Broken Steel simply move all *.bik's form your Data folder to your Video folder.

v1.2.1 (065\2009)
  • Binding an action to the "Home" key will no longer reset other bindings on that action.
  • start_menu.xml is no longer in a BSA again (G4WLD.bsa) due to the "LIVE" button sometimes reappearing.
  • Added support for moving *.bik files out of the hidden G4WL folder (Broken Steel has *.bik's).


v1.2.0 (254\2009)
  • Gave Games for Windows LIVE Disabler a more appropriate icon.
  • Improved the UI.
  • Games for Windows LIVE Disabler will now request administrator rights to run.
  • You'll now be able to point Games for Windows LIVE Disabler to your My Documents folder if it cannot detect it.
  • Fixed an instance where G4WL would appear disabled when in fact it wasn't.
  • Fixed all the Home key binding actions (except Forward) not binding to the correct action (oops!).
  • Prevented Games for Windows LIVE Disabler from running if Fallout 3\G.E.C.K\FO3Edit are running.
  • Fixed a few typos.
  • New Feature: you can now move all of the DLC's out of their "hidden" G4WL folder into your Fallout 3 folder, they'll also be automatically activated for your convenience.
  • Intergrated help (Games for Windows LIVE Disabler Readme.html) into the program, new "Help" button.
  • Enable\Disable buttons are now greyed out and a warning is displayed if something else disabled G4WL and Games for Windows LIVE Disabler cannot enable\disable G4WL because of it.
  • You can now bind the "Home" key to open\close the Pip-Boy, seems the Pip-Boy rebinding bug was an undocumented fix of the official patch v1.1.

  • Fixed enable button being clickable and disable button being greyed out even if G4WL was already disabled.

v1.1.1 (203\2009)

  • Now using the new (crash free) version of the fake xlive.dll which will decrease Fallout 3 startup times since G4WL's dll files arn't being loaded anymore (Thanks Timeslip!).
  • Removed Fallout3.exe version check, now works with all versions of Fallout 3.
  • Added more safty checks, no longer possible to start multiple instances of Games for Windows LIVE Disabler.
