    Falche is an obsoltete cheating program, it may screw up savegames if you use Falche with any kind of sfall. besides Sfall1 by Crafty in FIXT is a lot outdated. Sduibek (FIXT 0.81a creator) made a small beta update somewhere along the thread, it's 0.90 prebeta. and there are few Sfall1 v1.8 versions floating aroud the net. newest one is from Jul 2018 AFAIR.

    Besides whole FIXT is kin of obsolete now. Lexx and his rotators team ported Fo1 on Fo2 engine. it's called 'Fallout: Et Tu' and currently in v1.3 it has Fo2 engine sfall and is compatible with latst version of sfall if you know how to merge it properly.

    anyways Et Tu has a thread in modding section of this forum. it is advisable to try Et Tu instead of FIXT.

    Also for FIXT cheating try Vad's F12se in a latest version. It should work far better than Falche.

    P.S.
    Don't worry about PC specs. Fallout FIXT can run basically on a potato PC.
    Actually if You'd get a proper x86 PC emulator and wine/windows, You'd be able to run Fallout on modern day smartphone at full speed ( provided you'll connect a mouse and keyboard to it someway).

    The errors you're getting are probably tied to using Falche as it is incompatible with savegames made with sfall library.

    Also based on the weird configuration of processor cores in certain AMD processors, it is advised *not* to use SingleCore=1 option in ddraw.ini . instead leave the option as default SingleCore=0. Thing is AMD in some of their processors with odd number of processor cores, have non standard Core numbering, and SingleCore=1 sets affinity to Core numer 0 which is the first core in standard cpu core numbering. Since Certain AMD CPUs have the first core numbered differently issues may arise. So it's best to leave the SingleCore= option as default and let windows handle it. From what i can tell from your screenshot AMD with 5 CPU Cores, might just be the case I'm talking about.

    sfall is not an option.. theese days it's basically a nessecity. Et Tu comes with sfall as well, only a far better one than in FIXT. though in order to play Et Tu You'll need to own both Fallout1 *and* Fallout2 since Et Tu ports Fallout 1 to Fallout2 engine you'll need to own both in order to play. the downside of Et Tu is neither Falche nor any of the Vad's editors work with it. So if You're hell-bent on cheating it's by means of mods. a Hex edited starting character file can be imported into character creator. Basically it is possible to start with a char with all 10 in SPECIAL, 300% in skills (actually even more but game doesn't display a bigger skill number) 100 in all damage thresholds and 90% in all damage resistance types except EMP which has 500% by default. i really don't remember what else could One cheat this way, however there are further possibilities for perks by means of Nirran's RapidPerks mod. just set the mod's config.ini to no penalty and shitload of perk points per level and you're all set up. it's just a matter of gaining some exp. points.
    The best thing about the last part is to not pump up steal skill to 300% but leave it untouched. instead sfall's modder's pack has a nifty mod that causes steal attempts to always be succesfull no matter what, so gaing exp is just a matter of having a single itemin inventory and a non-hostile npc. Simply use steal and plant & steal the item around 8 times, exit steal interface, gain exp. rinse & repeat until you are satisfied with your hit points and perks. although i can tell you it's pure grinding to get to slayer/sniper perks this way.

    And yes If you used Falche on FIXT savegames, than those saves are broken.
    Actually there is no need whatsoever to need to use a savegame editor, thre's nothing mod's couldn't do, even if that means 4x turboplasma rifles and 4x Hardend Power Armor for you and your party. Although if one cheated the Caracter during creation the way i said there is no need to use any armor at all. since most of the time you'll get hit for no damage anyways.

    What does that mean? Did you use Undat.exe or something else? What master.dat file? From Fo2 or Fo1? You need to be more precise.

    Yeah..

    However Sduibek should move on by skipping 0.90 and going straight into v1.0 which is the first release in Fo2 engine. Since the base work nessecary for v1.0 to happen was already done by Lexx, there's absolutely no point in sticking to Fo1 engine. For now Sduibek could hold off a bit until all Et Tu bugs are ironed out, after that it would be time for him to pick up the work. (If he didn't already decided to abandon the project, or got Covid-19 or worse, that is).

    I get the feeling that Fallout Fixit might be dead - killed by Fallout Et Tu...

    Don't know what U exactly mean...

    Lexx picked up Fo1toFo2 most recent unfinished project (which was earlier developed by Sduibek btw.) and worked on that.

    Fo:Et Tu is actually based on unrelesaed/undeveloped FIXT v1.0, Although most things Sduibek added made intact, some wacky ideas got reverted to vanilla Fo1, for example all Armor stats got back to vanilla, Garl's inventory got back to vanilla (he no longer has a Psycho to steal from), Booze no longer give DR% and Beer no longer gives bonus to charisma while under their influence. Plus Et Tu has a shitload more of bugfixes than FIXT, although there are still some more to be fixed. there's also some stuff that Lexx added like player owned vehicle, ability to get 'Gecko Skinning' perk, some new random encounters, tweaks here and there etc. This is the short version.

    For full changelog You'd have to ask Lexx.

    There was a couple of broken quests in vanilla Fallout 1, I guess those fixes made it too. Thanks.

    If You are talking about 'find spy amongst the followers' then Lexx scrapped it due to poor quest design. However Follower good ending is possible to be achived only require different conditions. disarm traps for Glow still not finishable.
    Frankly I still have no idea what exactly did U had in mind...

    The Iguana Bob quest, finding the spy...I think they work in Fixt. The first one definitely does. I played long ago so I don't remember what other quests were fixed, if any.
    But seeing as I want the closest to vanilla experience as possible..I'll stick with Fixt. And wait for Sduibek hoping for..something.
    Disarming traps in the Glow..is it working in Fixt???

    These quests can't be "fixed". They are not broken but cut content. Fixt added this stuff in and most of it is horrible (it's cut for a reason). The spy quest for example barely exists. There's some left over dialog lines, and it's just bad. Like, really.

    I chuckled a little bit about the "I want the closest to vanilla experience as possible..I'll stick with Fixt" though, because Fixt changes a lot, even in the "purist"-version.

    Be that way.
    I enjoyed restored quests. I guess I enjoy bad things. Seeing as your mod is good – I'll probably skip it, guess I won't enjoy it, good is just not my thing.
