Question about Bethesda Softworks Fallout 3 for Xbox 360

Pipboy screen alignment off

On my xbox 360 I reach points where when I open my pipboy screen up I cannot see the top inventory items anymore, I see the bottom of the pipboy/characters arm and the terrain below the pipboy.
Is there a way to re-center the pipboy screen??? It took me a little while to figure out the 3rd person camera and I think the problem might have something to do with that but I cant figure it out, all I can do at this point is load a previous save where the screen wasnt jacked up but last night when it happened the last save was 2 hours back in the game and now my pipboy is more then half off the screen and Im... well, stuck.

    Hey Justin,

    Yeah I ended up reloading the last save, actually didnt take me too long to get back to where I was since I knew where I was going and what I could skip past.

    I did read another forum later where someone said if you holster the weapon you have out and then go back to the pipboy it should reset it, havent encountered that problem again to try it... and I hope I wont have too.

    Great game, but there are a lot of glitches unfortunately. Thanks for the reply though!

I had this issue, but the only difference was, my pip-boy would go CRAZY bright green, however the only sad thing is, you will have to restart from your last save, there is no fixing this, there is many glitches I have found through-out the game..Just make sure you save frequently. BTW if you have any further questions about Fallout 3, just post more questions, I read these quite frequently, I have a lot of expertise in basically about 99% of Xbox available games :)
Let me know how it goes, nine_iron88

How do you enter codes in The Elder Scrolls IV, XBox 360 Please help me

In the PC version of the game, the "cheat window," as some have called it, was actually a tool for developers. It can't be brought up on the 360, and so cheat codes cannot be activated there.
There are a few interesting glitches to help you out, but I don't know if they apply.
Duplication Glitch. Use a melee weapon. Swing the weapon, and in the middle of the swing, press B. Go to your arrows, and equip them two times in a row. Afterwards, go to the item you wish to duplicate, then drop it. Resume gameplay and it will be duplicated in your inventory.
If you have the Game of the Year edition, the above method won't work, since they released a patch for it to stop people from doing that. In this case, do the following: Obtain scrolls, as many as desired. The scrolls must be of the same type. Access your inventory and tap A two times on the scrolls. Go to the item you wish to duplicate, then drop. It should be duplicated.
Unlimited Gold. Visit the Talos Plaza District of the Imperial City. Find Dorian's House in the southeast area. Break in and find him. Bribe him until you can't anymore. Hit him with a weak weapon, preferably fists. Quickly hold block and talk to yield to him. Since he is your friend, he will stop fighting. Talk to him again and your relationship will have dropped because you hit him, allowing you to bribe him more. When you attack Dorian and yield, after a while he will run away when his health becomes low. Use any heal spell on Dorian to prevent this, or just wait a day until he returns back at his house with full health; the former option is obviously faster. Bribe and attack repeatedly.
Invincibility. When you're far enough into the game to get a Sigil Stone from a tower, save the game before taking it. Check if it is 20% Defense On Self. If it isn't, load the game you just saved and keep trying until you find a 20% DOS Sigil Stone. Then, do the "Duplication Glitch" on it five times, and use it on five pieces of armor. If done right, you should be invincible to weapon damage. (Please note that this also works with 20% Magic Defense.)
Keep Summoned Items. Summon an item, then damage it. If it is a weapon, use it on a monster or person. If it is armor, then get damaged yourself. After it has reached 99 health (this process should only take one hit to the item), quickly go to the item menu and repair it. After repairing, you will be able to drop it. Once dropped, wait for the summon spell to wear off. The item will still be on the ground. Pick it up and you will receive a great no-weight weapon or some weightless heavy armor.
In sum, there are no official codes for Oblivion on the Xbox 360, but there are neat tricks.

Xbox 360 cant output a video signal anymore, first noticed a problem when the video screen began turning green thought it could be a defective cable but upon purchase of a new one still got no video...

If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

Xbox 360 overheats on startup

there could be hardware problems! mine never gave the two lights when it started it but when playing certain games it overheated and thats whats happening.. i got upset and opened mine up[ voids warrenty for three red lights] and added a 3 inch fan with a 12 v converter for its on power. i set it in on the heat sink and the bottom right corner of the xbox..

so i think you should get a powerful 3inch by 3inch fan with its on power supply and set ur xbox so you can point the fan at the bottom of the xbox! this will help! dont open ur xbox just set a powerful fan[ radio shack, walmart, hardware store] and let it cool the bottom of ur xbox!!!!!!!!

Cheapist way

!!items needed!!!

1. 12 v dc brushless fan

1. 12 volt ac power adapter that hooks up to the wall and the fan for a Direct Current!
thats it may cost over 20 and walmart is cheap and a little less quality

but as long as air pushing on the bottom of ur xbox is moving fast[ dont put the fan to close] so heat is transfered ur good

Cant use right joystick in gameplay

There is a sensitivity setting in the Xbox menu. This should fix the problem.

Both Fallout 3 and Oblivion have similar problems. The sensitivity is kind of off for these games and you will probably have to adjust the sensitivity as I had to. :-)
