Thank you, thank you, thank you, this did the trick.
Finally an easy to follow set of instructions.


Now if I could just figure out which one of my mods is causing me to CTD every time I try to talk to anyone.

ok first off make a new folder on your desktop

next open the mod with winrar or winzip ect and grab all the items in the that window and move them to the new folder on your desktop (its a bit like copy and paste )

ok next open your fallout 3 folder not your data folder

then move all the files from the new folder to you fallout data folder

then download ArchiveInvalidation Invalidated

from here >>>> http://www.fallout3n...file.php?id=944

click the exe and run it once

then get Fallout Mod Manager

this helps with all mods new and old

from here Click here >>>>>> http://www.fallout3n...file.php?id=640

and just tick all the mods you have....

then click on launch FOSE button in Fallout Mod Manager ( this will run fallout 3 without using the norm fallout 3 launch.exe )

ok if you read the guide again this will help also.....

here are some more pics to help

then use the fallout 3 launder.exe or Fallout Mod Manager launch and to play fallout 3 from now on.

if you need more help................ post again here................or mp me

there is no step 3

please remove this thread, the download link is to an installer, there is no program to select activate or deactivate

REMOVE THREAD NOW


Moderator Note:

Been a member for a day, and post this kind of abuse to a respected member of the community.

You have made 6 posts, 5 of which are asking for step by step instructions for installing a texture replacer. Now you are an expert, and are telling us this step is unnecessary.

When in reality anytime you add a mod that contains content in any folder, e.g. textures/meshes/sounds or any other folder you need to deactivate and reactivate archive invalidation invalidation to reset the archive flags for the new content. Most users do it through FOMM and Fomods, but of course you know that already.

Your crass comment has been deleted...as it contains noting of value.
