What works

  • Fallout 2 version 1.02 (GOG-18), filename setup_fallout2_2.1.0.18.exe, MD5 b20e9a133c23bf308b8460272fd32d2b
  • After installation, edit ddraw.ini. In the [Graphics] section, set Mode=4.
  • Run f2_res_Config.exe to enable high-resolution graphics.
  • Use Fallout2Launcher.exe.

The game is kind of slow and jerky during movies, but is completely playable.

What does not

  • During installation, four message boxes pop up:
    • "Runtime Error (at 69:445):\n\n:" (\n -> actual newline)
    • "Runtime Error (at 201:800):\n\nInvalid Opcode."
    • "Runtime Error (at 201:807):\n\nOut of Global Vars range."
    • "Out of Global Vars range."
  • When the message boxes pop up, the following errors appear in the logs:
