How can you run it on windows 8 without a patch?
I clicked play and it said "Fallout appears to be running in compatibility mode." i tried to get a patch. the patch wouldn't install.

Move the Fallout 2 folder out of Program Files. Then install the patch, then move it back to its original location. Using Windows 7 here though so not sure the same thing will work on 8.

I just did this a couple of days ago. As long as you cut and paste the folder correctly, you will have no issues.

Open up regedit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers

Once there, delete the key that points to your Fallout 2 installation.
