So I DL'd Games for Windows, but it won't let me log in with the account I created.... it all seems to be for Xbox anyway, sorry to seem like a moron, but how exactly to I use this program to make Fallout 3 work?
When I press sign in, it says there is a problem I must resolve before I can sign in, then when I press the link to resolve the problem it takes me to a fresh account registration page. But I've already created an account, and I am trying to sign in with the email address I used to create it...
So I just created a new account and this time it works with exactly the same email address. But Fallout 3 is still doing the same thing.
Not sure if this might help pinpoint my problem, but I disabled my X-Fi again because when I was launching F3 I could hear my sound card clicking (changing modes or something, no idea) and re-enabled onboard sound, turned the theme from Aero to Basic, and the reso from 1920 to 1680 and then tried to launch the .exe in compatibility mode. It did the same thing as always, but it took maybe 10 - 15 seconds on the black screen with the loading cursor to lock up, compared to the usual less-than-5 seconds.
