I have Fallout 3 working in Windows 8.1 x64, I tried many various fixes aswell none of them working.


(Non steam) Windows live, bs thing.


It is the reason why my Fallout 3 kept crashing at launch.


Games for Windows LIVE Disabler: http://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/1086/?


Hopefully that works for you like it did for me.


tried it. comes up gives me a error that fallout 3 was never ran, do so before i use it. I try to run fallout 3, crashs. after that i treid using the GFWL and it said fallout 3 was never ran.  XD

Ok just got my new Steam version FO 3 GOTY going on Windows 8.1, you have to put a copy of Fallout.ini into the same folder as your FalloutPrefs.ini file then GFWL disabler should work ok. I didn't need to install Windows Live as some links say. I think you also need to modify that line about Hardware threading and add the extra line mentioned.
