    Fallout 3 wouldn't launch for me without GFWL, but this mod allowed me to install GFWL, block it, then uninstall GFWL and my game works fine. Thank you for creating this mod so I can play fallout without having to give my computer Aids. <3

    I hope everyone understands that if you're downloading the game from Steam, the game no longer requires GFWL, so you don't need this fix anymore.

    Also, I believe FOSE removes this requirement as well. The less stuff you need to install to make your game work, the better.

      I JUST re-downloaded FO3 and it has GFWL. But I'm about to look into this FOSE you speak of.

      You still need this to avoid crashes.

      This is also literally the easiest "mod" to install ever. You drag it into the game's folder and run the program, then click one button and close it...it's hardly an extra hurdle just get the game working perfectly.

      I've honestly never used this fix as I launch my game with FOSE using FOMM.

      I re-downloaded from Steam (GOTY) and it was still complaining about the missing DLL. Tried FOSE first and nada. Did the Fallout.ini trick with this program and now it runs. It's still relevant.

      so do we not need this anymore?
      because my game keeps crashing about 5 to 10 minutes in I'm just trying to cancel out any reasons as to why it could be happening i have checked near enough everything

    Windows 10 no longer supports the G4WL download you can get from Microsoft and using the FOSE doesn't get you around the need for having the latest version of G4WL installed either. I got past all this by first copying the Fallout.default ini located in the Fallout 3 game directory to my Fallout 3 directory in Documents/My Games and renaming it to Fallout. Then I downloaded this and put in my game directory and ran it disabling the G4WL and doing nothing else that this program will do. Works like a charm.

    I clicked the 'move DLC' button... after awhile it finished and said all DLC had been moved... erm... it moved 'Snap and Build' esm from FO4 to FO3 data folder and it moved .Skyrim' esm, 'Race compatability' esm, 'Update' esm, 'Dragonborn', .Dawnguard', and 'Hearthfire' esms, plus 'SkyUI_SE' bsa, 'Paarthurnax Dilemma' bsa and 'Wyrmstooth' bsa into FO3 data folder...and selected them in FO3 plugins list... When it says 'all', I guess it means 'all'....


    Before using a mod that you know nothing about, it is always a good idea to read previous posts.  This has been mentioned before.

    I'm having a problem. I got this mod because my DLC wouldnt work otherwise (because I got it on steam) and I disabled GFWL. After that I clicked Move DLC and to my surprise it said; "DLC not found"

    I can confirm I have game of the year edition and yes I did try to enable it and try again, the same thing happens. Help? I'm about to end the game and I need Broken Steel to continue.

    If this complains about the Fallout.ini file missing, just create a blank file named "Fallout.ini", then run this program to get rid of GFWL. Then make sure to delete the blank file you made. When Fallout 3 runs, it'll auto-generate appropriate ini's then.

    If using the Steam version, it's because Fallout 3 still insists on GFWL and won't even start without it, so it won't generate the Fallout.ini, which for some reason this program checks for, but doesn't actually touch...

    Besides that, excellent program!!!

      Worked for me. I didn't create a blank one, I copied the Fallout_default.ini from the game folder and renamed it.

    However I try, I have not been able to get this to work. I have a valid Fallout.ini in the correct directory, but the disabler insists that it cannot find it. I have MO, FOSE and the LAA flag set, but if I attempt to run FO3 with FOSE via MO, I get an instant CTD. While comments in this section have suggested disabling GFWL isn't necessary if using FOSE, the Clear And Present Danger guide has this to say about it (under the GFWL Disabler heading): "If GFWL is not disabled and the Fallout 3 executable has the LAA flag set, Fallout will have a CTD during launch." Also, F03 crash logs in Windows Event viewer suggest the GFWL dll is a part of the problem. I'm in the early stages of modding F03, but it seems I cannot proceed if I cannot get FO3 to launch from MO. Note: I CAN launch FOSE directly from the FOSE launcher itself. Basically, if I could get this disabler working, that would be great. Even if it doesn't fix the issue, it would narrow my troubleshooting avenues.

      I gave up on my original FO3 game -yes, the one for Games for Windows Live- and purchased the GOTY version via download from GOG.com; for all the headaches [concerning FO3] it has saved me from, it's probably the best money I ever spent.

      When the download was complete, I was set to play -fully patched and with the GECK installed.

      I've put in a little over a 100 hours now, and the game only crashed twice.
      With my previous version of the game, I struggled for maybe 15 minutes and then it turned into a crash-fest; crash on quicksave, crash on manual save, crash during loadscreen, well, you get idea.

      In a nutshell, it saved my FO3 game experience.
