Windows 7: Fallout Collection

24 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Fallout Collection

Whenever I run either Fallout 2 or Fallout installed from this disk, the colours and stuff screw up (like the Starcraft bug) is there anything I can do about this?

Also, the game is always in a resolution smaller than my screen - is there an option to change the resolution on these games (if it doesn't make it look ****?).

I can't add screenshots because when I paste the screenshot it makes it all or mostly black.

Easy, update your drivers with the guide in my sig and then right click the game, select compatibility mode to XP SP2 and tick Run as Administrator. Also, try different settings if those don't work - I vaguely remember some combination worked before I deleted Fallout.

That didn't work, and from what I can tell none of the compatability options fix it.

Patch the game, double-check your drivers are updated, and try again. If it worked on Vista 7 should have no issues.

Fallout 1 is on 1.2 which is higher than any online patch I could find so it doesn't need updating.

Everything updatable is updated but it's still not fixed.

Fallout 1 (1997) & 2 (1998) are old games so I'm not surprised they're issues with them.

But besides that, it would help immensely if you posted your system specs otherwise everything you get is just a guess

See the "How To Ask For Help" link in my sig.

Good luck

The game I got is always sitting on the shelf at EBGames, it seems they never sell it. It's called Fallout Collection and comes with Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics.

It says GSP, Interplay, Black Isle and MICROFORTE on the label and the publishing brand is called WHITE LABEL.
