Windows 7

Fallout 3 is very prone to crashing. Here are the mods that will help solve mitigate these problems:

Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch at Fallout 3 Nexus - Fallout 3 Mods and community

Large Address Aware Enabler for FO3 at Fallout 3 Nexus - Fallout 3 Mods and community

Games for Windows LIVE Disabler at Fallout 3 Nexus - Fallout 3 Mods and community

Error Corrections - Reduce CTD at Fallout 3 Nexus - Fallout 3 Mods and community

I use these all myself and they tremendously help.

Also, update GPU drivers:

And update DirectX:
SlasherIT: you are great!!

I tried f**ing everyting that I could find on the internet: Ini file .Net Frameworks, K-lite pack, compatibility mode, turning of visual themes and desktop composition, dll file, turning off autosaving, not using quicksaving, forcing V-sync off, patching away Windows Live Gaming or something, turning off my mods, cleaning my registry, clear cache memory with ~PBC, the thing with ffdshow, updated my graphic drivers, updated my sound drivers, and some other stuff I must have forgotten. Worked on it for 4 days now.

And now: after installing: Large Adress Aware Enabler for FO3 and Error Corrections Reduce CTD at Fallout Nexus: no more crashes!! I think the trick was that the game was heavy for my memory. I installed it with the heaviest graphic mods I could find and crashes were more frequent when I encountered Fireants (heavy graphic and sound). And turning off almost all details fixed it as well, which makes me conclude that the large adres solution did it, game uses my 4 GB memory now.

So, thanks man!!
