Fallout appears to be running in compatibility mode
I recently got a new computer, which is running windows 8. When I first downloaded Fallout 2, it worked fine, it even didn't have the annoying rainbow graphics issue it did on windows 7. when I went to play it again, it said it appeared to all ready be running in compatibility mode. Any body know how to fix this?

I got the same error. I installed SFALL (a mod) which apparently didn't work, uninstalled it and magically Fallout 2 started working again. Seriously.
well, that doesn't really help me.

Maybe try installing Fallout Restoration Project? I've heard that might work. Here's the official page of the mod: http://www.killap.net/

I downloaded every patch i could think of including sfall. and i still get the same error. i played it for 2 minutes, saved, and then quit to take a nap. When i got back, i got the message. I'm Running on Windows 8 on some 1,600 dollar gaming computer i got for chritsmas. It shoulden't be a windows 8 problem as i have a game from 1985 running.

I had serious problems with this as well, but eventually solved it. What I did:

1. create a folder for fallout on your desktop.

2. in steam, go to settings, and under the downloads tab, click "steam library folders". Add the new folder as a directory.

3. install fallout 2 to this directory. Do not run fallout 2.

4. Download the Unofficial Fallout Patch from http://www.killap.net/

5. Run the patch, making sure that it is pointing to the new directory that you just made, and that when it installs, it is not creating an additional fallout 2 folder within the existing one. It tried to create an additional folder by default for me, so just pay attention.

6. right click on FALLOUT2.exe, located in:

[YourFolder]/SteamApps/Common/Fallout 2

and make sure it is not running in compatibility mode, is not running in reduced color mode, and is running as an administrator.

This solved it for me. Some of the steps might be unnecessary for you, but every single one was for me. I hope this helps some people!

It seems to be fixed for me now. I had to perform the instructions described for the Update release.

You need to scroll to the bottom and find this folder pathway:

C:/Users/[yourname]/Desktop/[yourfolder]

I assume you're talking about adding a directory or pointing the patch in the right direction?

The mod is a part of the guide I posted, but for many people, windows 8 will prevent them from installing it while the games are installed in program files x86, which is the default.

Also, I still had to adjust the compatibility settings after I ran the mod, so...
