[color=rgb(51,51,51);font-family:arial, sans-serif;font-size:13px;background-color:rgb(255,255,255);]I'm in a bit of a pickle. After watching the videos regarding Mod Organizer a few times now, however, I can't seem to even run Vanilla Fallout 3 with mod organizer. I'm able to run it perfectly fine through steam, and I can easily run FOSE by double clicking the fose_loader.exe, however, when trying to do this through Mod Organizer, the game crashes on startup. Not really sure what Mod Organizer is doing differently, but it's starting to get quite annoying. I've almost acknowledged that I'll have to use NMM for Fallout 3, but since the application is advertising that it has FO3 compatibility, it would be nice to know where I'm going wrong. If anyone else has had the same issue, please let me know (to compare conditions), and if anyone knows a fix, also chime in! I'm going to send in a bug report (I can't imagine what I've done wrong, as it's only when I try to launch the game through MO that it crashes - if I launch it manually immediately after said crash, the game launches fine on Vanilla and FOSE.)[/color]


[color=rgb(51,51,51);font-family:arial, sans-serif;font-size:13px;background-color:rgb(255,255,255);]I'm really liking the tool for Skyrim (as it actually launches) and I'm certain I'm missing something, as no one else (as far as I've found on the internet) is having these problems. You may have to kind of walk me through this, but hopefully I can get some helpful people come to my rescue! [/color]

I am able to run FO3 with MO without any problems. The FO3 guide (see the "Clear and Present Danger" guide in my signature) goes through the steps I've used for this. You don't need all the utilities shown there, of course. You do need to make sure that the installation order and load order are setup; did you use BOSS to make sure the plugins load in the proper order (fallout3.esm needs to be first, of course)? I assume you started FO3 initially with the launcher and did whatever editing was needed. If you use the LAA flag on the executable you need to disable Games for Windows Live.


Are you testing with mods or just the vanilla Fallout 3 files?

If you have tweaked the ini file with the font change and haven't added the UI mods the game will crash. If you use the bashed patch in wrye try unticking the box and see if the game starts.
