I am not responsible for any problems or damage to your device from using these files.
The user assumes full responsibility for their actions.
These files are not harmful but playing videos games is very stressful on your mobile device.
You will need:
1)Fallout 1or2 the game full installation on a PC (Not provided here)
2)a)Version 1.0 Android X86 Emulator QEMU:
Note! Version 1 is more stable but won't run the restoration Project. You must Manually install Killaps fallout 2 patch with it. You can also use Mash's Resolution patch with this version.
Mash'sFallout2 Hi-Res Patch v4.1.5
2)b) Version 2 Android X86 Emulator QEMU
Note! To Play fallout on Android You must install manually install killaps patches with win95/98 compatibility!
1)Extract the Restoration patch, open the folder.
2)Open the "main" folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory.
3)Open the "Windows 95-98-ME" folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. (Say yes to overwrite the files)
4)Open the "Batch_work' folder and copy and paste these files into your Fallout 2 install directory. Run the f2.bat file(A window will popup)
5)Next this is EXTREMELY important, in your Fallout 2 install directory delete a file called "patch000.dat"
a)For version 1 use Killap's Unofficial Fallout 2 Patch:
b)For version 2 use Killaps Fallout 2 Restoration Project Manual patch Download:
3) Extract either the 2GB or 1GB empty HDD.img files to an easy to find location on your PC. Bigger is Better, for improved stability! Note* Default is 2GB. You can change this by editing the sdl config file.
4) Install the free 30 day trial of WinImage and run the application. Be sure to use it before 30 days passes.
5) Open the empty HDD.img by dragging it into the open Winimage program. Or navigating to it from file/open
6) Locate your fully installed Fallout 1or2 game folder. Transfer the Fallout game folder into the HDD.img and save it. This can include the official Patches and Mash's resolution patch. Single core devices should use my No Ambient noise Fallout cfg.
(Optional) You can install one of my custom Fallout cfg files by copying and pasting it into the Fallout directory.
1)Config With Video & Ambient sounds: This is recommend to improve screen scroll performance and sound compatibility.
2)Config without Video & Ambient sounds: This has the same sound tweaks but further increases performance by removing ambient and video noises. Note*NPC conversations will still have spoken dialogue.
7) Save your new HDD.img and close the program.
8)Copy and paste your new Fallout2 HDD.img into the SDL folder in your downloads.
9)Transfer the sdl folder to your devices internal memory. This will be the location that opens when you plug in the USB cable.
10)Transfer the libSDL.apk to your device and install it.
11)Run the libSDL.apk and start windows. Skip scan disk if it comes up.
12)Play Fallout on Android and wander the wasteland.
(Optional) GameKeyboard app that lets you make onscreen buttons:
SDL cfg File:
-Located in the sdl folder you will find the sdl.cfg file. This allows you to edit the instructions given to the emulator.
-You can edit and save changes to this file using notepad.
-Here is the default line for the sdl.cfg file.
/sdl -L . -m 256 -boot c -hda c.img -hdb HDD_2Gb.img -usb -usbdevice tablet -soundhw sb16
-You must click the volume bottom before you can move the mouse.
-Fallout1: If you have problems launching Fallout 1, then include the Patch and Dos files to your fallout 1 folder and launch the game from Dos.
Fallout1.1+Dos Patch download:
-Fallout2: If you have problems launching Fallout 2, manually install Killap's Unofficial Fallout 2 Patch (US/UK - manual install)
-You can increase or decrease the Memory –m 128 or 256 or 512+(recommended)
-The Default is 256MB for compatibility.
-Set the emulated Memory size to half of your total system Memory size. So if your device has 1GB of DDR use the 512 setting.
-You can change the name of the HDD –hdb HDD_2Gb.img Note*It Must match the exact name in your sdl.cfg file.
-Add additional HDD’s by adding sequentially lettered –hd(x) Like so
- /sdl -L . -m 256 -boot c –hda c.img –hdb hdd_2Gb.img –hdc hdd_2Gb.img –hde hdd_2Gb.img… ect
-The default is HDD_2Gb.img but you can edit the file with notepad. Just change the 2 to a 1, to use the HDD_1Gb.img, save and exit.
Extra HDD for Virtual Memory:
-I would highly recommended attaching a 1Gb HDD used only for virtual memory. You can use the Virtual Memory sdl cfg line below.
-Once you are running the emulator right click on the vault 13 desktop icon and choose properties, select the performance tab. -Next select “virtual memory” at the bottom, click “Let me specify my own virtual memory settings” and select the HDD you attached.
-It will prompt you to reboot once you exit. Don’t reboot, choose no, and then shutdown and re-launch the emulator.
-This will help to keep System Resources between 98-99% free. This helps to optimize the performance and improve stability.
-You can check the performance by right clicking on the desktop vault computer and selecting properties. Navigate to the performance tab at the top and look for “System Resources:98%free”.
Virtual Memory sdl cfg:
/sdl -L . -m 512 -boot c -hda c.img -hdb HDD_2Gb.img -hdc HDD_1Gb.img -usb -usbdevice tablet -soundhw sb16
-You must click the volume bottom before you can move the mouse.
-To help maintain stability try and minimize back ground app activity while running Fallout.
Note*Fallout1&2 runs reasonably stable. Reasonably stable = testers report gaming session of 1-3hrs.
Tweaking the CPU Settings:
Increasing the minimum CPU frequency may help to improve stability. You can use the free CPU Master App. Also set the CPU governor to Performance or on demand. Don’t forget to set it back to normal after your finished exploring the wasteland.
