I can play but the radio studders way to much, not like its supposed to. I know the radio is supposed to sound old but its like lag, about 3-4 words then it stops for about 2-3 seconds and goes again. Give me a major headache..

I have installed Fallout 3 on Windows 7. However, I have a GeForce 6200 and I can't play anything higher than low settings. I get bad framerates on low. However, it's playable.

I can't wait to get a gaming rig.

agree - the game runs under 7100 x64 with 9.4 Cats but it will disable the desktop type manager, this did not happen in 7068 x86, it ran perfect in that build.

Then again, for me, the CCC is not working with the 9.4 Cats.

BTW - performance wise for me it was better when I ran 7068 x86, it does seem to stutter since installing x64 7100

7077 disables the desktop windows experience. However, when you exit the game, it reverts back. This is common isn't it?

Only happend Since Windows 7 build 7077. You can fix it however by running the Aero Trouble Shooter, and it corrects it.

For me running the trouble shooter (after ALT-tabbing the game) will start up the windows aero theme again, so that aero is running, but will not prevent it from happening the next time that the game is ran, unless I'm doing something wrong..?

Okay, I don't understand. Isn't this normal behavior? Isn't this how it's supposed to work? Aero uses your 3D graphics card to power itself. If you launch a 3D graphics intensive program, like a game, Aero and the program would share the card's resources. If you're playing a game, you usually want everything you can squeeze out of the card.

Yes, But any other game doesn't shut down WDM. Only Fallout 3 since Build 7077 has.

The game runs in Vista and pre > 7077 Build with Aero running perfectly. So it's a glitch. Plus the way my laptop is, I can play the game perfectly pretty much with aero on.

FWIW the latest 1.5 patch for Fallout 3 no longer causes any issues for me with the aero desktop in 7100 W7 x94,.
