    In newer windows, some system folders like C:\Program Files (and "x86" one if you're using 64bit windows) are protected by TrustedInstaller special account. Programs need to have elevated permission to make file changes under those folders.

    The reason I suspect the file permission is that from your post above, sfall cannot disable Mash's HRP from the game exe, which usually happens for game installed under those special folders. And if you did follow the installation guide, undat.exe might have trouble extracting assets from FO1 to FO2 folder as well, so you don't actually have proper files for et tu.

    Should I try to install both Fallout games i C:\Games\ ??

    What is "Mash´s HRP? Is it a part og "Fallout et tu"? Because I did not install any other mods??

    1. Yes.
    2. It's those "f2_res.*" files, and the main component is f2_res.dll. Current Steam/GOG release already has it bundled (along with older sfall 3.2) and many TCs have it as well. In Steam/GOG release, fallout2HR.exe is a pre-patched exe that will use Mash's HRP while fallout2.exe is the original unpatched one.

    Is there a workaround for the Nuka-Cola truck special encounter crash? (I tried et tu, but I find fixt easier to use.)

    Edit: I found the bug. There's a typo in the COLATRUK script. "destroy_object(Cokes)" should be "destroy_object(Coke)". (I don't know whether it's worth uploading the fixed file.)

    there is one, try not setting GVAR that gives multiply of Fortune Finder perk too high. setting this too high with high enaugh luck generates so huge amount of caps the game crashes. in an add on so called 0.90b which is listed several pages back in this thread Sduibek fixed this himself by actually limiting how high the Fortune finder perk multipiler GVAR can give, as far as I'm aware it's the only reason to crash there, otherwise it's the unstable sfall1 by Crafty which is unsupported anymore unfortuneatly.

    Thanks, but I don't know how to set GVARs, and I can't find 0.90b or any evidence to support its existence. Right now, I'm testing the idea that lowering my luck from 10 to 9 might help. 10 makes the game a little too easy anyway.

    don't worry you can just hunt for cola truck encounter while having 9 luck and get the +1 Lk boost from chuck later so that You'll have 10 for the endgame :)

    the original nixie numbers is vapourware I'm afraid, although b4 Sduibek himself vanished I remember smeone asked him about nixie numbers, Sduibek extracted the stuff from FIXT for this guy, if you plow through entire thread You might find it.. good luck though 213 pages is a lot to read, alternatively you may try TeamX's site, but beware of viruses.

    hey, how can i disable the hi res patch and have the exe still work? i want a totally vanilla game with original resolution, and i had to comb through its settings to make it so, but now the menu is broken anyway

    i picked the bugfix only option so it was advertised as vanilla
    but it came with the hi res patch which isnt really vanilla, until i try to use the settings to make it vanilla, but then it breaks stuff

    Even the "Purist/Bugfixes only" version is by far not even close to vanilla, because a lot was changed that has nothing to do with making it run better or fixing bugs!
