Prior to Installing the Game

Before attempting to install Fallout 3, please verify that your computer meets system requirements.

We also recommend that you prepare your hard drive for installation by running ScanDisk and Disk Defragmenter prior to installation. These utilities are part of Windows® and can identify and resolve problems with your disk drive which could hinder installation and/or playing of the game.

To launch these programs and optimize your hard disk drive:

1. Open "My Computer".

2. Right-click the disk drive you wish to install the game onto (usually C:).

3. Click on "Properties".

4. Select the "Tools" tab.

5. Click "Check Now" to launch Scandisk.

6. When Scandisk has completed, follow steps 1-3 and click "Defragment Now" to launch Disk Defragmenter.

Remapping Your Controls

You can remap your controls while playing by selecting SETTINGS, CONTROLS, ACTION MAPPING. There are separate controls for each input device you have. You can have actions tagged to multiple devices. So if you want to remap an action to one of your mouse buttons, select DEVICE to change to the mouse settings in the bottom right corner of the screen.

2. Performance Tuning

There are several things you can do to increase game performance.

* Make sure you have no other programs running in the background.

* In the Fallout 3 Launcher, select OPTIONS:

o Lower the Resolution

o Turn Antialiasing OFF

o Turn Anisotropic Filtering OFF

o Set Detail settings to MEDIUM or LOW. Select Advanced for more detail options.

o Turn all water options to LOW or OFF.
