Question about Bethesda Softworks Fallout 3 for Xbox 360

1 Answer

When loading a game the screen goes red but can still see

I've been playing Fallout 3 for months now and just yesterday got the Anchorage DLC which may or may not have anything to do with my problem.

I played all the way through the new content and played a few hours afterwards. When I started it up today it was fine and then I went to send a message over Xbox Live, when I hit the guide button to return, my game screen had all turned to mostly flashing red segments, though I can still see objects and my pip boy.

The continue/load screen you get when it first loads up is still the right colors until I load a save or continue, and any of the old saved I load start doing the same thing..it even shows up on the thumbnails of the saves. I have no idea why this happened or how to go about fixing it so anything would be helpful

    Edit: It appears the most severe when I load a fallout 3 level. However, I was playing a few XBLA games and I noticed that when there were streaks of light or explosions ..well I don't really even know how to explain it..there looks to be some sort of lines in and around where they happen kind of like the game is unfinished? I am noticing lines on my dashboard and Guide menu now as well. What in the world is going on?

It will be the graphics card overheating becuase it happened to me. It wont be the downloadable content because it happened to me before i downloaded it. you will need a new graphics card.
Hope it helps.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

Try to save RIGHT before you think your gonna freeze then keep on trying to do that. Or maybe try to get the Pitt+Anchorage pack so you can get the patch.

Frozen Fallout 3


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.
