I bought Fallout 1 and 2 today, and though Fallout 2 runs fine, Fallout 1 isn't so friendly.
Because it's such an old game, i'm having trouble describing it, but it's like if you tried to run a game that was too much for your machine-the framerate is slow, the mouse is very jittery. Animations run slowly as well. The two opening movies are fine, and the music runs at the correct speed. Anyone have a solution, or having this issue as well?
Try renaming ddraw.dll to something else (you can delete it, too, but better safe than sorry). The game will then default to using the built-in Windows version of ddraw.dll. If that doesn't solve the lag, Timeslip's sfall
mod may also help with this.
