Question about Bethesda Softworks Fallout 3 for Xbox 360

2 Answers

I have the Fallout 3 game of the year edition, I have brotherhood of steel add-on activated, nothing else, along with 17 mods. Every time I attempt to save, fast travel, or enter a new area, my game would just crash. For example, if I attempt to enter a building, it would crash. Please, if anyone out there knows how to fix this, I beg you, please tell me.

Hi , If you new to modding then youll probably neeed to determine if the mods are the problem , so heres how to tell start off .
Download the BOSS . here ( )
Run a scan and then check the plugin message warnings. Look for lines that are colored yellow , or red . This is a sign you have a conflict and will usually cause a game crash , usually because of dirty script lines .
If It says youll need to clean the mod ...then youll need to get another
program called TES5Edit , ( )

To clean a mod youll need to find the mod name .....only check the mod or plugin your going to clean .... never clean more than one at a time ( never ) . so right click and select none , then choose your plugin with a ckeck mark . Next check ..( OK ) . The Program loads your plugin to review first .
When it finishes ..
Next , to actually clean the mod or plugin ....On the top left youll next see FORM ID # , under it youll see the name of the mod or plugin your cleaning .

Right click on the name , and select ( Apply filter for cleaning ).
Now notice the top of the page as it is now processing again to see whats dirty about your mod or plugin .

When it finishes .....The Name will change colors usually ,
Next ...right click on the name again , and choose ( remove identical master records. )

What now happens is you are removing any conflicts of script lines that appear as one in the same of your plugin. Its like you are clearing the Cashe of the program . ( Click Yes i am sure )

When the mod finishes cleaning , click the x to exit . and then it will as to Ok to save the cleaning process .
If it doesnt as you to save the cleaning process it wont be cleaned .
So this is essential if your cleaning ......always confirm the saved clean .


Now run Boss again .
Conflicts should be resolved .

If you want further conflict finding software i recommend next

2. Skyrim mod organizer
3. Loot Installer

Try it without the mods (If there are unknown variables these fixes might not work). I had many problems with my fallout 3 (I am a bethesda fanboy so I stuck to the game despite all the problems). The first fix i reccomend is going to your system settings and then to your memory and then clearing its cache (will not affect your saved games). The second fix I recommend is deleting the patches and letting them download again. The third fix is the corrupted data deletion. Sometimes changing options in the options menu created corrupted data that would show up somewhere in your fallout game saves folder (labelled corrupted data). Sometimes this corrupted data can be linked to a specific game save (deleting a game save is a worse case scenario).
)The forth fix (is true for most every bethesda game) is limiting your saves (for me i only have 2 at any given time and never anymore) seems like each game (skyrim, oblivion, fallout 3, fallout new vegas) craps out at a specific amount of memory used for game saves fallout 3 i remember being so bad that i couldn't hit level 30 with 2 games saves without constant crashes (i had all the add ons and that seemed to make it a bit worse). Thats a fix for pretty much everything that can go wrong I hope this was helpful.

You might need an update from xbox live. If there is one available you'll have to delete any saved games and start fresh. The original release contains a glitch that the update should fix but if you keep playing on a saved game the glitch will persist.

The second disk is basically just an expansion which is not needed for the original program to function and it isn't asked for. Insert the second disk and if the auto install doesn't initiate shortly after hit the windows icon in the bottom corner of the screen and select computer click on drive e which is the disk drive and look for an install or a program with .exe which is an execute command which initiates something normally a function of the program a screen should come up and there were 5 add ons to fallout3 make sure each box is checked and install. restart your pc and when you start fallout it should say something like it's reading downloadable content. When you load your current game you should get new sayings that you found a new radio signal etc.

When ever i try to go into any of my charicters is said do not have downloadable content even though its game of the year and i noticed that this also happend when i rented fallout new vegas

when you FIRST put the game of year edition in there will be a screen that comes on with the additional content you need to have all of those boxes checked for it to load those programs into your hard drive or other storage device. You can check to see if its installed by going into my xbox-system settings-memory-hard drive/memory storage/games-fallout 3 and looking there. Otherwise you'll need to reinstall and double check the additional content is checked before proceeding
