http://www.nma-fallout.com/article.php?id=39448 Install that it will fix all your problems. The graphics and the compatibility. Aswell as fix a ton of bugs etc. It's kind of required for the game to run on modern systems. No I have to post this on every discussion with people asking what the problem is with their rainbow graphics and compatibility mode errors.

I get the same message, and ive tried to installed the unofficial patch but i get a message that say i cant install the patch under that directory in this windows (win 8). So i tried to reinstall the game, but then steam wont allow me to choose what folder it should be placed in.. It just wants to install the game in the steamfolder. So i tried to copy the files to another folder, but then i got just the same message as before.. I dont know what to do now.

And the most annoying thing is that Fallout 2 worked fine the day that i installed it.

EDIT: There is a sullution that worked for me further down in the forum..

copy the fallout folder to c:\ games. Then install the patch to that. Then move it back to your steam folder
