This talk page is only for discussing improvements to the page "Fallout 3 patch 1.7."

So I bought this computer so I could play Fallout 3 on it and maybe even play online. Nope. Computer came with Windows 7 and apparently, the top of the line is just too sophisticated for Fallout developers to bother with. It's a year and a half later and WHERE THE HECK IS THE COMPATIBILITY PATCH AT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When starting Fallout 3, Live prompts me to update to the newest version. I click to apply the update, then I get a status bar. The status bar doesn't move at all after that. My internet seems to be fine otherwise, so I'm not certain what the issue is. Any suggestions?

You have to wait for the file to download. SpellChecker 18:12, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

This patch fixes the crash on exit, enjoy it while you can since the next DLC will probably reintroduce it like the last two have. SpellChecker 18:13, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

So... does this patch have any drawbacks, ala 1.1?

Bug fixes Edit

Bethesda seems to enjoy not giving full information on patch fixes (for example, silently fixing the non-persistent objects in mods problem from 1.5 in 1.6). Does 1.7 have any unadvertised fixes that people have seen? Are Ghoul Ecology and Superior Defender fixed? Does Evan King's death by random encounter no longer lead to Arefu trying to kill you? I'm not particularly optimistic, but it would be nice to know. ShadowRanger 13:58, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Winterized T-51b Power Armor fixed Edit

Can anyone else confirm that their T-51b Power Armor reward from completing Operation: Anchorage is no longer invulnerable? I just tested it while playing through Broken Steel and found out the hard way...

Additionally, while playing Broken Steel this time around I did not get the bug where Rothchild doesn't correctly move toward the map in order to advance the quest. Hope it was truly fixed this time rather than luck. -sumpwa

Remove CD Check? Edit

Really? It isn't on the official update log. Although I have experience of the CD check no initialing on vista 64, I doubt it 04:18, September 4, 2009 (UTC)

Help, I'm new to this. But can anyone tell me if i have to apply the earlier patches or if this one is cumulative?
