    Always run the game once through Steam/GOG after installing it to generate .ini files!
    Vortex users: Install FOSE 1.3b2 manually in Fallout 3 folder after patching, do NOT use a suggested "Fallout Script Extender" option in Vortex!

    Laptop users with two graphics adapters in their system: change preferred graphics adapter to NVIDIA GPU in NVIDIA Control Panel!

     - I'm getting "Invalid executable" error
     - Verify game files on Steam or GOG.

     - FOSE does not work
     - use Fallout3.exe, not fose_loader.exe. Doublecheck that you have FOSE 1.3b2 installed manually in Fallout 3 folder.

     - My antivirus thinks this is a trojan
     - It's not, add the file to exclusions of your antivirus.

    - I'm trying to install the patch with a mod manager and it doesn't work
    - It's a patch, not a mod. Read the description for installation instructions.

    - The game works but steam overlay and playtime don't work
    - You have to start the game through Steam for that to work, since Fallout 3 does not use Steamworks integration.

    - Patcher window opens and immediately closes, game is still unpatched
    - Install the redistributables linked in the requirements of the patcher.

    - My game still crashes
    - If you followed all instructions correctly, it's most likely unrelated to the patch.

    • If you have just installed the game, you need to run Fallout3Launcher.exe (or FalloutLauncher.exe for GOG) before running the game to generate INI files.
    • If not, try deleting the ini files in Documents/My Games/Fallout 3 and running FalloutLauncherSteam.exe (or FalloutLauncher.exe for GOG) again.
    • If you are using Mod Organizer 2 and the game won't start through it, you probably created your MO2 instance before generating ini files. Create a new one through instance selection dialog (button below "File" in the top-left corner), or disable "profile-specific ini files" in MO2 profile settings, or copy ini files over manually if you know how to do that.
    • Clean reinstall of the game helped stop crashes for some users (uninstall the game on Steam, delete the installation folder, delete everything except saves in Documents/My Games/Fallout 3, reinstall the game)

    There seems to be an issue with this mod and DarNfied UI F3...

    When I click on DUI F3, on the menu, it doesn't open the DUI Settings.
    Maybe I need to make some changes in the DUI XML...

    Anybody got any tips on what should be changed?

      - Open start_menu.xml in Data/Menus/Options with DarnUI installed
      - find the <_isPauseMenu> line
      - Change <eq> 9 </eq> to <eq> 8 </eq> two lines under <_isPauseMenu> (line 51)
      Alternatively you can edit the Data/Menus/Prefabs/DUIF3Settings.xml file instead of using the in-game menu.

      I did bypass the menu issue by using the alternative method. At least is showing now...
      Thank you very much!

    Does anyone know if the latest update can be safely installed or should we block it?

      You don't need to downgrade anything, recent update only changed the launcher, not the game itself.

    Did this mod also work on the 1.7.0.3 version of the game?
    GOG has only this version.

    (GOG sales the uncut/english version also in Germany)

    Anyone with the Fallout 3 Steam Version.

    I did first run the vanilla game without problem, so after that I only installed this mod (CMD screen says installed sucessfuly) and the FOSE version and didnt work in my system (Win 10, Intel 7700, AMD RX 5700 XT, 16 GB Ram), the game just dont OPEN (it look like it open and closed right after it, task manager dont have anything), SO far the ppl whose had this problem doesnt had find a solution. Tested the Intel Bypass mod, the swap with GOG .exe, and other things, NOTHING had worked, the game just dont open.

    Downloaded the GOG version and only put it the FOSE and is working normally.

    So far, I think it should be informed in the description page this mod can or not work with your steam version, it appears to be a hit or miss.

      It works fine with the steam version, unless you're using the german 'no-gore' exe, which isn't supported.

      Doesn't work fine for me, and I'm not using that version.  I have mods on Skyrim and VTM but I've never had as much difficulty as I have with just getting FO3 to open.  Might as well just do a plain old vanilla run at this point, with the time I've spent trying to fix it.

    I'm running fallout 3 GOG and fose is not working. I use Windows 11. How do you get fose to work for you? The anniversary patch makes my Fallout3.exe unusable, the game just won't run, does anyone else have these problems?
