I am playing Fallout 3 on a new PC with Windows 8 and it crashes frequently. I went to the download section of Bethesda and downloaded a patch to make my version upgrade to V.317. I cannot find out what Version it already was and the patch does not help anyway. Any suggestions? This game ran very well on my older Vista. Frankly, I HATE Windows 8, but that's another story.

Maybe this would work

or this

If you don't have the Steam version, some of those instructions may not apply.

Thank you for your answer, but I do not have the Steam version and cannot put it on Steam.

The second link recommends reinstalling. As I am about 1/3 of the way thru, I hate to do this unless I can save my games.

Thank you! I found the Save games, now to try to figure out the rest of the explanation.

I will probably be back. This is my favorite game so far and I don't want to give up on it.
