First of all, hello everybody, now, to the meat oh this thread.

Well, I finally decided to start playg Fallout (1)...so far so great, I'm really loving it, but have some question regarding some technical stuff:

1). Is there any way to permanently center the camera on the character (you know, since there's a center button, i figure there must be a way to modify it somehow).

If not, then is there a way to both change the camera movement buttons from arrow keys to "wsad", and even better, to smoother it? because by default it kind of feels slow and jumpy.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

2). Is there a way to change the keyboard configuration in general?

3). I'm using this mod, which allows to change resolution to highter levels, but in doing so the cutscenes get sort of screwed. Any way around this issue?

4). Is there a mod that makes the graphica better. And no, is not that I dont like how it looks, its just that my eyes get a bit tired, it would be good to have the graphics a bit more defined.


Well, phew...that's just about it, I think, hehe.. icon_chainsaw


Thanks in advance!

actually reading glasses *may* help if you don't have perfect vision - as for the other issues - I don't believe there's anything you can do.

A lot of community mods have come out for the Fallout games, but the issues you are describing are more for personal comfort, and I don't believe have been addressed by any of those who've modded any of the Fallout games.

sorry!

I see... (no pun inteneded), well I guess there's nothing to do about it. Oh well, that wont stop me from enjoing fallout.

Thanks for the answers.



PS.: I do use glasses specifically for the computer. My problem wasn't about the quality of my capasity to see through the game graphics, but rather the fact that I'm not used to 2d isometric graphics...same thig happened to me when playing Diablo....

Anywy, thanks again!

To answer your questions- Fallout is for elderly assholes whose only joy comes from mocking hatred. Leave this place before it fucking twists you into some kind of unrecognizabnle Lovecraftesque thing.... Run!!!! Fucking Run!!!

play in windowed mode. Better yet, buy an ancient PC with a 14" monitor and play on that.

Yes. I've had my best Fallout experiences on a 15 inch TFT monitor.

Your entire people was almost destroyed by a potato. Too fucking drunk for little things like stockpiling, crop variety and field rotation.

So suck it.

You identify so strongly as Irish, and making fun of the Irish gets your goat, so never.

It's my heritage ok man hits a little close to home yes i'm America and of very strong Irish decent, so yes it does offend me when people talk bad about my people. Yes it's true lots of Irish males are drunks but i'm not an whiskey loving aloholic so it angers me when you trash talk my heritage and decent.
