Fallout 2 won't run and Steam won't respond.

Alright fellas, it's been a long time since I've used Windows, so I don't know anything.

I downloaded Fallout 1 and 2 from Steam. 1 works like a charm, but when i try to run 2 I get an error message. It says Fallout 2 is running in compatibility mode. I'm using Windows 8. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it, as well as turning it on and off in Properties. Does anyone have any ideas? Steam has yet to respond. I also can't seem to find an .exe file.

For running them perfectly.

Find your Steam folder, find the Fallout 2 exe file, right click, properties, uncheck the compatibility mode.

Yeah, I did that. Didn't work. Made me want to punch my dog, but it isn't his fault.

Was Compatibility Mode not enabled, or did it just not work?

It wasn't enabled. So I enabled it. When that didn't work, I disabled it. I renamed that particular file and nothing. This is why I switched to Apple. Because I have no idea what I'm doing beyond clicking links for naked ladies.



Oh hey, thanks man. Im kind of new here, I've only been posting for 6 years and never figured out the search bar.

You don't have any mods installed at all do you?

Nope. Not unless steam automatically installs them.

Under the properties tab on the shortcut on your desktop, there should be an option for 256 colour.


Fallout2.exe->Right click->properties->256 color

Something like that anyway.

Is that option checked? Greyed out?

If you can, uncheck it - it seems to be a common cause of issues for some reason.

I think you're supposed to check that and enable 8 bit. That's what's supposed to solve the problem. But I think that's for some weird rainbow thing that will happen in the game. But yeah, I did that too.

Oh well. I guess I'll just wait for Steam to respond.

I'd just hang on for Steam pal - my google-fu is failing me.

This problem happened to me when I wanted to play dungeon keeper 2 on Win7. DK2 is quite an old game, and it didn't like being shoved onto a much faster OS and system. Have you tried seperate launch options in steam? They've solved a lot of startup issues for me. Its a bit brute force-ish, but it has worked:
