    posting again as the last one might get edited out due to accidental 'over pasting'...sorry.
    This actually worked for me when nothing else would:

    Open up the fallout.ini file in: My Documents\My Games\Fallout3
    Find the line:

    bUseThreadedAI=0

    change it to:

    bUseThreadedAI=1

    Add another line after it and insert:

    iNumHWThreads=2

    This will limit the game to 2 cores and prevent the engine bug from causing the game to freeze.

    *If the game still crashes write this iNumHWThreads=1

    For anyone else having this problem, the solution that worked in my case was to start the executable in compatibility mode for Vista SP2. That resolved the crashing on new game. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

    Skank Kid's solution works for Oblivion too. : )

    After a lot of frustration i finally got it working on Win 7 64 bit.

    After having tried just about every solution in here, to no avail, i was ready to give up.

    But then i trawled the Application Log in Windows and found this little gem:
    Code:
    Faulting application name: Fallout3.exe, version: 1.5.0.22, time stamp: 0x49cd1e54
    Faulting module name: CLAUD.ax, version: 5.0.0.924, time stamp: 0x3f7176b0
    Exception code: 0xc0000005
    Fault offset: 0x0002df54
    Faulting process id: 0x1654
    Faulting application start time: 0x01c9dae305a5dbf4
    Faulting application path: F:\Gamez\Fallout 3\Fallout3.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\Shared Files\AudioFilter\CLAUD.ax
    Report Id: 507981da-46d6-11de-8ca0-00248c189b93
    Notice the line:

    Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\Shared Files\AudioFilter\CLAUD.ax

    Turns out the PowerDVD player was at fault all the time.
    After uninstalling it, Fallout works perfectly.

    Thanks, man. The above solution also corrected a situation where Oblivion would constantly crash before the main menu.

    My old version of PowerDVD (5, I believe) didn't install correctly on Win7 (and likewise left no uninstaller), but it did leave some remnants. All it took was to delete the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink altogether.

    Go figure that one out. Either way, I'm now a happy camper. : ) ~ Bamm

    Power DVD at fault ... interesting, and good to know. :)


    Im curious as to why.
    Meaning if its just certain versions, or all PDVD versions in general.

    fallout 3 runs fine on windows 7. I have been playing it with lots of mods since the windows 7 release date. My game has a low fps though...only about 60 frames per second, probably nothing to do with windows 7 but just throwing that out there.

    Hello,

    I am having crash issues as well with Fallout 3. I am running a dual core 2.8 with 6 gigs of ram and an ati HD4800. I am not sure of the sound card it is built into my asus mobo. I was able to go thru the vault area without a hiccup. once I finished and escaped I run into this crash issue. I was able to level up and save. The crash comes as soon as I walk a little bit I come in contact with some rat or something. I bring up my VATS, target the rat. As soon as I close the VATS it bombs out. Now, I also figured it might be a permissions issue.Where is the .ini stored? I tried running as administrator. changing permissions on the EXE. I am sure its something small and it will work but figuring it out is gonna be a pain I bet.

    I have tried just about everything and nothing seems to resolve it. Permissions, graphics tweaks, updating drivers. so far nothing has resolved it. if anyone knows of any other ideas please let me know.

    Thanks!
    When running Fallout 3, make sure that not many programs are open except for anti virus, microsoft programs, and nothing else. It will run alot longer without crashing. And go into msconfig and disable unnecessary services that open on startup so you dont have to close them later on.

    Interestingly enough, both Fallout 3 and Oblivion utilize Bethesda’s Gamebryo engine, so I’m not surprised that the CLAud.ax issue affects both titles. What gets me is that, since PowerDVD failed to install on my rig, I don’t see how merely having the file reside in the C:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink folder would make any difference. In fact, I figured I’d have to go so far as to unregister the ActiveX file , but typing “regsvr32 –u claud.ax” in Run told me it hadn’t even *been* registered.

    The only reason I tried to load PowerDVD was to take advantage of its ability to play Dolby Digital AC-3 5.1 audio files.

    Folks here who are having performance issues might want to troll some of the Oblivion boards for possible solutions. Now that Oblivion is finally up and running, I might have to look into Fallout 3.

    Im just curious why you find this to be low FPS?

    45-60FPS is the sweet spot IMHO.

    What I mean is, if in fact you monotor is a 60 refresh, 60FPS is all it can display anyway, regardless how FPS many your GPU is capable of creating.
    So technically, getting 100FPS+ is a waste as the monitor can not even show them.

    If you still want more, you can try making sure Vsync is NOT checked in the graphics settings, as it will limit you to the refresh rate of your monitor (which is usually 60) This will unlock it and let draw as many as it wants, but you may see Image tearing.
    If Im not mistake, FO3 turns vsync on by default.



    If Vsync is On already, and your holdiong a steady 60FPS, that is great!!!
    I would recommend trying to increase other Image enhancing features. AA and AF for example.

    Because, if the card is capable of 60+ FPS, it should be able to maintain close to that with these features on, and the game itself will look so much better overall.

    If you can maintain 45-60FPS consistantly with AA, AF, and Vsync all all, Id say thats quite good. :)
