    I haven't found anything useful on this when I searched. I'm trying to run Fallout 1 with Fallout Fixt in Dosbox (because I'm on a non-standard platform that doesn't have Wine). Fixt runs, and I can see the changes in the title screen and the credits. When starting a new game, the original intro video and the additional one (where mutants kill Vault 13 members) play.
    Now comes the weird part: after the video finishes, the screen goes white, then fades into the first gameplay moment and I can see my character and the cave. However, the screen then immediately turns white again (gradually) and drops me back in the main menu.
    This happens with both FULL_CUSTOM and FIXES_ONLY.

    It looks like something that should be solvable, but I'm at wits' end. Menu, videos, and main game screen work, only the gameplay doesn't start because it immediately drops me back in the main menu.
    This is with Fallout Fixt 0.81a.

    Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this?

    Doesn't this mod require Sfall? If so, it is not compatible with Dosbox.

    doesn't SFall only work with Fallout 2 anyway?
