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

many doors on the game aren't meant to open until you reach certain points in the storyline. it will give you a message telling you that you cant open at this time. eventually you will have access all the time, and when you reach that point in the story, you may come and go in those doors as you please. other doors however are not meant to be opened at all and are merely for effect.

It could possibly be the save file. Try making a new game and reaching that point.

When I get to level 15 it will let me upgrade my stats but won't let me pick a perk. The done choice is shadowed as if I'm not allowed to pick it so the game is basically over there.

To choose a perk, besides reaching a new level, you must also have certain amount of points in specific skills, for instance, for the Cyborg perk you must have level 14 and science 60% and Medicine 60%. Try reaching level 16 and you may see available perks for you to choose.

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. :-)
