    ok went back, got the .exe file ( and that one only) from the new patch also added tyhe ddraw file ( and that one only) form the sfall.

    but still cant boot up the game it sitll givers me an error message about the directX.

    I insalled direct x twice now.

    during the install at the end it gives me a chocies where to put it and i put in "program files" , but it is not tehre as afolder "dirctx" but all sorts of direct x files are just in the prgram folder directly.

    C-->program folder--->direct x folder---> direct x files is not the case

    its C---> progranm folder---> april2005d3dx9 25 x64 etc etc a long list.

    is this right?

    when i use a CD to install FO it asks me to update driectx . i think will it always pull up the latest?
    am toying with going to walmart to put the FO1, FO2, and FO Tactics collection to have that FO2 CD....
    will a new FO2 CD like that have the latest directX and put it i the proper place?

    should I take all those dx files in program fiels folder and put them somewhere else?

    one ting I did extra: I ahd left the patchooo DAT file in by mistake before i sinatlled MM this time around on my 4th install, and didnt take it out until after MM and sfall and direct X were instlled/updated.
    Could this have any effect?

    Everything is well done, except the DirectX installer version. You have been downloading an outdated DirectX; it's an April 2005 release.
    This is actual one, February 2010 version of DX9.0c, it worked for me:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=0cef8180-e94a-4f56-b157-5ab8109cb4f5
    No, probably not.
    Un-modded Fallout does not need the latest DirectX, thus I doubt it is distributed with an actual DX installer.
    An updated DX9.0c is crucial for the sfall mod, which is a necessary part of the MegaMod.

    It worked it worked!!! :dance:
    Yes Yes!!!!!!! :drunk:

    Thanks guys!!!

    small question. Will it lock up the game if i "give myself" a little extra weaponry early in the game with "loaded" locatiion files like Klamall?

    Or maybe it is too much a violation of the purity of this wonderful Mod!!

    ANyway I need to go play now:postviper:

    No, you cannot! That was a team work, dude. :)

    Ha, a good news, at last! Enjoy. :ok:
    (I'm glad I could help, but I don't know nothing about a cheating, so I suggest you to do not use the editors. Try a regular gameplay, consider it a new challenge.)
