If your Fallout 2 looks like this when you run it in your Windows Vista or Windows 7...



and you'd like that it looks like this...



follow these steps:

1. Install game
2. Install patch 1.02d (US) http://dlh.net/cgi-bin/dlp.cgi?lang=eng&sys=pc&file=f2v102d....
3. Unzip sfall on Fallout 2 directory http://sourceforge.net/projects/sfall/
4. Edit ddraw.ini
5. Find these lines


[Graphics]
;Set to 0 for 8 bit fullscreen
;Set to 4 for dx9 fullscreen
;Set to 5 for dx9 windowed
;A dx9 mode is required for any graphics related script extender functions to work (i.e. fullscreen shaders)
;Modes 1, 2 and 3 are no longer supported
Mode=0


6. Change the last line to Mode=4 for fullscreen or Mode=5 for windowed
7. Save file
8. ???
9. Profit!

I guess just running the game in DosBOX would be too insipid?

Edit.
Hah, I could swear you could play it in Dos, but is seems I'm mistaken. Carry on.

Thanks so much! Having received Fallout 2 recently through Astinex's beneficence in The Video Game Geek Chain of Generosity, I hope I won't have this problem. But if I do, now I know what to do to fix it. thumbsup
