Default Re: Fallout Issues...

Ok, reinstalled fallout 1, made sure to do everything in the same compatibility mode, 98/ME in this case. In vanilla 1.1, still had the black out issue, with and without the firewall active. 1.2 unofficial patch, same thing. Hi-res patch, same thing. Till I decided to tweak the resolution and color settings in the new menu provided by the Hi-res patch (note to self, READ the readme files, thoroughly). Even with firewall running, I have a playable experience. occasional flicker of the screen, like it turns black, but clears almost as fast.
