Well, it looks like I have a new problem with a mod. Although the sfall
mod works nicely for me on my XP computer, Fallout won't even start on my Vista laptop.
I have 32-bit Vista Home Premium, and trying to start Fallout using the sfall ddraw.dll throws an error at me: "Could not load DirectX - This program requires Windows 95 with DirectX 3.0a or later or Windows NT version 4.0 with Service Pack 3 or greater."
Falloutw.exe defaults to Windows 98 compatability, but trying all the options (including disabling compatability) doesn't seem to help. The game works fine if I get rid of the sfall version of ddraw.dll, but then I lose all the benefits of sfall.
Oddly, Fallout 2 doesn't suffer from this problem.
Same here, runs fine on XP. I assume it's due to DX10.
