After completing Fallout 1 I installed Fallout 2, which ran fine with the unofficial patch the first time round.
After exiting the game, however, it won't reload. It will simply freeze the screen or else bring everything down to a crawl.
Restarting the computer and disabling all the usual background processes won't help.
I reinstalled the game a few times now and it's always the same problem: the first time round the game runs fine but it will instantly hang on subsequent startups.
I think it may have something to do with initializing the graphics. Has anyone else encountered this before?
