The Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch is an extensive mod fixing various bugs throughout the Fallout 3 world and in the official DLC's!

How do I report a bug?
All bugs should be reported on the Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch bug tracker here. Registration isn't required and highly recommended you use it to report bugs as it will help me greatly in keeping track of everything but of course if you'd prefer you can still post/email me any bug reports. When reporting object placement bugs or pretty much anything simply open your console, click the object with the problem or one near it and write down the formID, only report it if the first 2 numbers are 00 (Fallout.esm) or 01 (Anchorage.esm) otherwise it means a mod added that object and it isn't something I can fix.

Important Notes
-The Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch has been created for Fallout 3 v1.1 (english) or higher and should not be used with any other Fallout 3 versions\languages.
-The Unofficial DLC Patches will ONLY work if the DLC's are in your \Fallout 3\Data\ folder otherwise using them will crash your game. If you want to move the DLC's out of G4WL then simply do a file seach in your "C:\Documents and Settings" for *.esm" (make sure the option "Search hidden files and folders" is checked) once found simply cut and paste them into your \Fallout 3\Data\ folder and enable them like any other plugin.
-ArchiveInvalidation Invalidated! activated upon installing UF3P, it will not be deactivated\removed upon uninstalling.
-If you have already been afflicted with the Charon and Ahzrukhal "stuck" bug then it will be reset so you can talk to Charon and initial the event again.
-The Mouse Menu Acceleration Fix will not be removed upon uninstalling the Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch, if you want it gone then use the shortcut created in your start menu to remove it before uninstalling.
-The G.E.C.K SArchiveList Fix will not be removed upon uninstalling the Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch.
-If you are already afflicted the bug that causes Dogmeat\Sergeant RL-3\Fawkes to having massive amounts of HP it cannot be undone, UF3P's fix simply stops it from happening.
