FALLOUT 3 Crashes on Windows 8

  • Level   1

I just recently purchased Fallout 3 and downloaded it through the Microsoft Windows Marketplace.  Every time I start up the game, press play and select new game it crashes and boots me back to the Desktop saying that it crashed.  How can I fix this?

    Not sure if you got this fixed, but a few places seem to believe this is related to Games For Windows Live - either installing it or making use of some kind of dll, e.g.

    I haven't tried either myself, but it looks promising at least.

    Hi o CYB0RG o,

    Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling both the GFWL client and the Fallout 3 game? give that a shot and let us know if that is able to help. Thanks!

    if windows 8 has compability modes like windows 7 does use that it will resolve it if its there it will be in properties when you right click the game icon
