    Having trouble getting into this one ... Having been a huge fan of PST, thought I'd check out what else they'd done, and knowing PST had a bit of a slow start before it *really* got awesome ;) :), I was wondering if Fallout suffers the same - so for you guys that played it, when did it get interesting to you? I'm up to Junktown and think I've done most everything here. I like the post-apocalyptic setting, and the RPG ruleset looks pretty kick-ass with tons of possibilities, but thus far the storyline and atmosphere leaves me a bit dry... Should I press on? Does it pick up at some point? (say, is there a Pharod or Ravel to meet in Fallout? ;>) -- };> Matt v3.2 <:{

These very old and drybones have misplaced his Daggerfall game and all
it's accessories that came with the box.

Anyway looked at Bethesda and nothing there for purchase of the game.

E-bay, good creeping Jesus, one site at $118 dollars.

Al  I want to do is replay the damn game not go into the national debit at
77 years of age. Thought it would complement my Morrowind and Oblivion,
along with "Arena that is a problem" on WinXP SP 2.

Anyone have any ideas how to get it onto my hard drive inexpensively?

Hmmm ?  Difficult ..as you probebly all ready know its 'Abandon Ware" status 
is uncertain
..it USED to be on The Underdogs but many consider it still 'Un Abandoned'
There is a version around at 126 Mbs Total rar....I suppose some of the 
sound has
been left out ..perhaps dig around the Abandon ware sites.

Hmmm, I have a mint copy that I was consdiring selling as I'm having a
clearout of my older games over then ext few weeks.  

It goes for about 0 in the UK, but when you add the cost of
International signed for postage its probably about $80 US  :-(

I'll let you know when I can dig it out of its airtight box in my
loft, if you are still interested then.

You bought the game, which I believe means that you have a permanent
licence to play it, providing you have not sold or given the original
to anyone else. If that's the case, I am happy to allow you to download
it from me, since I believe it would be entirely legal. All I am doing
is standing in for a defunct company who cannot send you another copy.

I have it / well I did have it installed on a Win Me machine that the HD 
and I sent machine to dump and bought a Dell XPS WinXP SP2.
Have Arena installed on this one (not figured out how to get it to run),
Morrowind plus 157 mods and Gothic II are running.  The long shot is I will
try to slow down the old XPS for Arena and Daggerfall also, if I can figure
out how get sound as well.  XXXX@XXXXX.COM 

My new Dell XPS 600 (Grandkids and Son bought this one for my 77th) with
WinXP SP2 Media that I am now using only for internet and for New Games,
Oblivion and perhaps NWN 2 single player and what ever RPG's that are
not internet has (Norton Ghost / Trend Micro PC-cillin / Spyware Doctor 
won't let Gothic II run).Too Bad the kids live 1100 miles away. Could use
their savvy to get me up and running on the 'old Dell'.

If you would allow a download to my CD\DVD recorder on this machine  that
would be a godsend for a old poop.

Thank you for your reply and hope to hear from you again.

You'll really need to use DOSBOX to play as there are bugs as
ininvisible quest items and moneters when played under win2k & xp.
Sound is also problematic under these OSes, but DOSBOX emulates all the
useful sound cards of the era.

Check out the Elder Scrolls Forum under their past games forum.  There
is a sticky(top) telling you how to setup DOSBOX for arena, daggerfall,
red guard, and battlespire.  There are also links to alternate DOSBOX
configurations and setups.  (I just did this the other week as Oblivion
is incredibly boring once the realization that it's just a graphics
demo with game play elements added as an afterthought.  Also playing
Morrowind with MGE + pseudo distant lands.)

BTW: Bethesda is still in business, but they're morons and won't
provide new copies of the media or even re-release it in some form to
the public. They've turned into a consumer hostile company over the
last several years.

I fear for Fallout 3...

I saw a radscorpion the other day...

...horrible creatures...

I heard that the brotherhood is recruiting...

ad nauseum, gack!

>> You'll really need to use DOSBOX to play as there are bugs as

Drybones, I setup dosbox and daggerfall earlier this year while waiting for Oblivion and 
socket AM2.  It took a lot of tweaking to get it to run acceptably on Windows XP.  I 
used a version of dosbox that uses DirectX to accelerate graphics emulation, which 
worked better for me than the standard dosbox.  The version I used was dosbox cvs 
build from sourceforge.net: dosboxcvs_051009.zip (although I don't see that particular 
version now - the latest version there is more recent).  I got that tip from one of the 
posts in the Elder Scrolls forums.  Let me know if you want more details, I can send 
you my dosbox config file and I probably still have that zip lying around.  I ran it on an 
Athlon XP 2500+ and performance was just barely acceptable - seems to be about the 
same or a bit slower than I remember so long ago in native DOS on a Pentium 120.  
But graphics, sound and mouse all worked.

Meanwhile if you want a taste of Daggerfall without installing it, get the Privateer's Hold 
mod for Morrowind.  It's a faithful copy of the Daggerfall starter dungeon, although I 
found it a lot easier to complete than the real thing.  You can get it at

Thanks Alan,
I can use all the help that is given as computers since, WinMe, have 
faster than my brain cells have been able to keep up with. And I might add
my brain cells seem to be deteriorate as fast as the {*filter*}y machines and
programs advance.

Was looking to upgrade the ATI 9800 Pro in the Older Dell box and all the 
pages I go to are talking to far over my head for me to make a quality 
on which Video card might make a difference and yet keep the cost below $200
US dollars. Oh well, just felling left out of the knowledge base anymore.

If you can afford around $200 the GeForce 7900GS PCIe card is very
good, or for around $150(online and maybe some brick and mortar
retailer deals) GeForce 7600GTs PCIe are good.  Both cards also come in
AGP varieties(if you need one), but you'd likely have to buy them
online and they'll likely be more expensive.  If you want/need to go
cheaper you could likely even get away with a 7600GS which should be a
little over $100 online(this one also comes in AGP varieties and is
much more common).  Performance of the 7600GS will be less than an
x800, but I'm not sure exactly where, best bet is to check on
anandtech.com and tomshardware.com for benchmarks, reviews, and anand's
Oblivion benchmarks...

The 7600GT is approximately equivalent to the ATI x800, and the 7900GS
would be approximately equivalent to a high end x1800 or lower x1900
models.  I am currently using an(one) eVGA 7600GT KO (clocked @ CO
speed out of the box) and when I use Oblivion to bench it I get a high
of 45 FPS, low around 28 FPS with an overall average of 36 FPS in the
forest with HDR, distant lands, highest detail settings(basically all
highest except shadows which are at mid, win2k, CPU is AMD x2 4800+, 2G
DDR 400 RAM). Never bothered to go to a town or inside a building as
the forest area tends to give the lowest performance(other than
Oblivion gates) by far, and play feels smooth at those framerate

(Oblivion makes for an excellent benchmark/system stability tool...)

Half Life 2 runs smooth as silk, but since I've just gotten it I
haven't checked the actual FPS on it yet...  And those are the only 2
games I have that are recent enough to begin to stress my current
system setup.

1.Daggerfall And XP

Simple question, does anyone know how this can be run in 
compatibility mode so it actually runs properly. I.e. you 
can see quest items. A problem which doesn't seem to have 
been seen on previous windows versions, yet XP even with 
compatibility mode (does this ever do anything?) 
introduces a new unplayable bug.
