Frozen Fallout 3

While playing fallout 3 on my Xbox, I would intermittenly get a frozen screen. It would usually pattern up, and go dead. It wasn't really a problem, as I would just shut it down and start over. It now happens every 10 minutes or so while playing. Is this a problem with my 360(never had this with any other game), or is it a Fallout 3 problem?

    I have fallout 3 and have not had that problem. Do you have an XBox 360 with a hard drive? Have you gotten all the updates for the XBox ?

I would download the game to the hard drive and it freezes a lot because its on open world rgp so it has to load a lot.. But if you download Fall Out 3 to your hard drive it will increase load times and reduce freezing.

I cant look around in fallout 3 (right stick frozen), and my last save point was hours and hours ago. however the right stick works in pause menu and other games. what do i do?


What probably happened is your right stick was compressed when the remote turned on. Try turning the remote off and on, or un-plug and plug it back in. If that doesn't work simply save your game using the left thumb stick.

Fallout 3 freezing


Well your disc is officially garbage because it's for sure scratched. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.

Freezes when i leave washington memorial (no Xbox live)


With absolutely no way to update, you might be in trouble. However, if your disc is dirty or scratched, a good cleaning/resurfacing couldn't hurt. You also can't really go wrong with a hard drive install.

My Fallout 3 game freezes when i'm trying to exit the elevator at Tenpenny Tower. What do I do ?


Hopefully you have a decent save a while back.

Fallout 3 can be a B-word when it comes to freezing up.

Fallout 3 Freezing Problems???


Fallout 3 freezing is an unfortunately common problem. A lot of people have reported that clearing the game cache on your 360 will fix it, so that's what I would suggest you try first.

To do this:
  1. start up your 360, then take out the Fallout 3 game disc.
  2. Hold down the A button on the Player 1 controller
  3. Put Fallout 3 in your 360, then load the game
If this doesn't fix it, the next thing you could try is to clear the system cache. This will clear the entire cache for your 360, including the automatic updates (though downloaded content, save files, and user dats will be untouched).

To do this:
  1. Navigate to System > Memory
  2. Highlight the hard disk in the list and press Y
  3. Press X, X, LB, RB, X, X
If done right, you should see a message asking, "perform system maintenance?" Proceed with this, and it will clear all the cache data out and revert Fallout 3 back to version 1.0 (it should ask you to update once you load the game)

Hope this helps - I've had my share of frustration with Fallout 3 glitches.
