    Sorry for the rather dumb question, but how does one really activate Fallout Fixt? I thought it'd install like a "normal" mod, that is, you install it inside the original game folder and then run the game. But the "mod" itself is almost the size of the game itself and its directories seem to replicate the original game's structure, complete with an executable file. This gives me the impression that Fallout Fixt is actually a copy of the game, with the mods already embedded, so you could even ignore the original game altogether. However, when I try to do this, it says it can't find the master data file, which indicates that it might really be the case I need to install this in the game's original folder.

    So, how do I run it?? (No, the "readme" did not answer me)

    You overwrite the base game files with whatever you have downloaded. That's it.

    Oh, boy... it's clearly written in the installation instructions. Massive facepalm here. :-(

    Thanks for taking the time to reply such a dumb question!! o.O
