RE: Can not get game to work

Sorry to hear you are having problems. First of all what version of the game do you have retail or STEAM. I assume it's retail. Also make sure you have the latest version of wine installed.
It seems that the problem preventing you is that the msvcp80.dll file is not being "seen" by wine. Hence xlive cannot run. Fallout must have a working xlive to work, and xlove needs msvcp80. So the problem stems from the msvcp80.dll. You need to make sure that you have downloaded the msvcp80.dll file and put in in your wine system32 folder. Then you have set an override for it in your winecfg.
Also, make sure you have the latest graphics drivers installed for you graphics card as if not that may also be causing problems.
Also, the rating for a program working "right out of the box" is platinum. A gold rating indicates that a program works well once certain overrides have been done.
