:huh: So heres the latest..... I just got back from my dad's and he downloaded Fallout 3 for me of a torrent site, he has it on his pc and his is vista and it works..... so he put the file onto a disc so when I got home I could install it. I followed the instructions and everything and the game installed.

However when I went to run the game it came up with this.....''This application will not start because 'xlive.dll' was not found...'' Now I no jack about what that means.... It said on the Tech help site that I should go onto the DVD and find a certain file blah blah blah ... but I don't have the DVD just the file with the .exe on a disc.... :huh:

So basically what I'm wondering is how da hell do I play the game without the hassle of waiting another 2 hours for it to instal :huh: Lol.

Plz help!!! :huh: B)

Since Fallout 3 is not a free game. We must adhere to one of the rules that has already been linked to, which states:

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
