    Hello, I know this post is pretty late, because I didn't see this thread before, but I am SpyBox and I just recently got into Fallout. My first game I played was 4 at a friends house a couple years ago and just now I am getting into the series myself. It is a lot of fun and I really enjoy it. I like this forum and It will be fun to chat here.

    Because you said it and where you said it was on Must Adio Keeps Dying's user page so I linked both userpages. Maybe there was a better way to do it though idk.

    So why is "other half" in square brackets?

    Wait what? The reason that I put that in square brackets because I thought that in the original quote you said

    "Knowing is half the battle. The rest is extreme violence and guerrilla warfare."

    but you actually said:

    "Knowing is half the battle. The other half is extreme violence and guerrilla tactics."

    And I wanted to say that the other half was instead of the rest was so I substituted it with square brackets but It seems I didn't actually need to do that LOL.

    Hello dear Fallout fans,

    'Please forgive all my futrure mistakes'

    Fallout 1 was the first game I ever played and I still love the series.

    I've mananeged to install Fallout 1 in DOSbox turbo on android and are now looking into Fallout 2 in exagear.
    The only problem is that android 11 has some new read/write policies preventing me to save the game.

    I have spend considerable time tweaking, reading and programming to get to my current state, making me wonder: 'Why is there still no easy accesible way to play the first installments on android?'

    Am I missing something here? Thinking about launching a crowdfund to make this happen for android 11 to enable future generations playing the game on mobile devices.

    Also, I have used NMA many times but never dared to join because of my distance to a reactor :P

    Many thanks to all lving supporters of this community :)

    Hello all!

    Been a Fallout fan for a long time. Got in to the series with Tactics when it came out, then picked up 1 and 2 in one of the old double game jewel cases a short time later. Spent years waiting on 3, got it and was sorely disappointed. Can't really stomach 4. New Vegas was decent enough I suppose.

    Anyway, I've long since resigned myself to being disappointed in anything new that decides to wear the corpse of Fallout around and collect cash.

    SUP my name is Olathe Loser, I'm trying to get into Fallout 1 and 2 but am sometimes stumped on what to do. Also 1 gives me pressure to complete the game like I'm speedrunning it.

    It's normal to feel a bit lost when playing Fallout 1 for the first time. I'd suggest checking out a guide online if you're really stuck (that's what I did anyway) but try not to rely on it too much. The game really isn't that complicated once you get the hang of it.

    As for the timer, it scared the crap out of me too, but that's the point. You're supposed to feel like it's a threat, like the entire fate of the Wasteland depends on you. It's an integral part of the Fallout 1 experience.

    The timer only really matters if you use rest to heal a lot.

    Welcome to the Wasteland. Stick around.

    Travelling and reading books also speeds up the timer a lot. I remember the first time I beat Fallout 1 I had spent so much time backtracking that by the end the supermutants had pretty much destroyed every single town. The game really encourages you to think about how you spend your time within the game's world. I kind of wish Fallout 2 had a timer because I think it would make the Enclave an even scarier threat.

    Welcome to nma! Hope you enjoy your stay (however short it may be)

    Hey there, I'm Michael. I found this forum via Google for a completely different reason outside of Fallout (DM me if you want to know the reason why, I'd rather not derail this thread), but I can assure you I will stay for the Fallout, baby. I'm from the West Coast of the United States. I like video games, watching TV shows and movies, riding my bike, card and bored games, I dig some numismatics, and more.

    I've been a fan of the Fallout series since Fallout 3, played through Fallout 3 and Fallout 4. For some reason I have yet to finish New Vegas as well as the OG Fallout games but I'm sure the motivation will come to me. My favorite Fallout games are Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. My least favorite Fallout games are Fallout 4 and Fallout 76. Feel free to shoot me a message if you want to chat or whatever!

    Catch you later. Tunnel Snakes rule!

    - M.
