Fallout is a role-playing open world video game.

Making it work

German version should work, english works as well with the same tweaks. (Others probably too? CHANGEME). If you require support for general issues, see the performance guide and FAQ.

If installation complains about missing diskspace use the freesize parameter:

mount c /your-dos-dir -freesize 999

Sound problems can be solved by deactivating the Gravis Ultrasound emulation and then using the auto-detection to locate the soundblaster.

gus=false

To make the game more stable (and to get rid of a save-at-map-end bug) you can try to increase the amount of memory.

memsize=128 #for example

The game seems to run quite slowly with output=surface. Try output=overlay.

EDIT: I'm using output=overlay successfully. output=surface makes it slow.
