This version is the cut version
And I don't mean the UK-cut (no children, cut intro), I mean the German cut, so no gore effects at all. I live in Germany and at the shop page of Fallout there is no disclaimer that this is the cut version (like there is a disclaimer for Fallout 3 for the German version).

Now I have to look for an uncut (blood) patch. :\

Theres a lovely little mod from that No Mutants Allowed site. Its called "Fallout FIXT" and it adds A LOT, and I mean A LLLLOOOTTTTT of awesome stuff they cut from the final version of the game! About 1,000 (But 900 really) bug fixes, and a couple cut NPC's. I got it... its incredable. And I ain't just sayin' that like some ad on TV where the people get paid for it. Cause I ain't getting paid for it. It's utterly lore friendly, and totally worth it. Easy to install too. It'll even give you the options for a few bonus things for your companions witch helps them and you. I don't know if it'll get you your gore, but still, definitily worth a try.

This post may cointain spoiler major spoilers.
I installed a gore patch (without changing the exe file, because that would cause an error on startup) and I was able to play the game in German with gore effects (and children). However, I beat the game in under 4 hours, because I beamed my char directly from Necropolis into the military base (ask the mutant Harry to see Lou), ran away from the Lieutenant, set the self destruction counter, ran away out of the military base, rushed to the cathedral, put on a robe, argued the hell out of the master (mutants are sterile), ran away, game over. I beat the game and didn't even bring back the waterchip for my vault. xD
After rushing through the game I will try it again with that patch/ fix you mentioned above. Thx. Is there a version for Fallout 1+2 or for Fallout 1 only?

Theres one for Fallout 2, but some people say its not worth it. But thats a load of crap in my opinion!

I guess this is the one you are talking about. Sounds really nice. "and many fixes to text/dialog" would mean I have to change my game to english language, right? Or is it compatible with other language versions?

The one for 2 that I used was the fallout restoration patch 2.2 and its awesome. It does make the game a lot harder too.

Really? I also just bought the collection during the sale (German store). I quickly checked Fallout 2 and was happy to see that it is the completely uncut US version. This one is cut? Maybe just with German language?

@ Max Power: Yeah, so: If you play Fallout with german language, it is cut. You can set the violence level to "Maximum" referring to "maximum blood" in the original, but you only get the standard death animations that you have in the cut german version (would be "minimal" in the original version). If you change the game to english, then this version is the UK-cut (no children, but all gore effects) and the language is english. If you then change back to german language, the gore effects are gone again. -.-
Totally ridiculous, but that's how it is.
Installing the gore patch for german version helps here, setting the game to the US version (with children, but I think the intro video is still cut).

I now installed FIXT and everything is english now, but that's fine with me. Only the cutscenes are still in german.

I didn't check out Fallout 2 yet.

...Maybe ...Just maybe... But it did say that somewhere in the Read Me it was compatable with other launges. Yay!

Okay, unfortunately FIXT seems very bugged itself. I changed my game to english, installed the fix, played about 4 hours and whenever I now leave to the world map and click somewhere on it, I get this message: http://www10.pic-upload.de/28.08.13/ovibm5ayxyp7.jpg
I guess the savegame is corrupted now, I have other savegames, but what can prevend this error from happening again...

I havent played much into my copy yet, I havent fixed the colour issue, but I have to ask (I owned the originals on disk) When you say gore, do you mean the blood pools that form around people? or the spraying effect of people being ripped apart?

Look here:

It's a fully detailed report of Fallout cuts in germany. This is for Fallout 2, but it is the same for Fallout 1 (except some critters like aliens or geckos).
Look at the pictures. Right is US, left is german. It's not even gore, it's every animation other than the 'falling down and blood spreads out'. Even the flamethrower and laser effects were cut.
