Fallout is one of the greatest RPG games out there. It's set in the post-nuclear, dangerous world of violence and radiation. The game consists of a very detailed and interesting storyline, tactical turn-based combat, and revolutionary character creation style. You can play Fallout for months, but still it's not boring because of many ways of finishing the game. You can be a bad-ass gangster, or a world-saving hero. This is a must-see for all RPG games fans, and it's undoubtedly one of the best gaming classics. Unique, amazing storyline makes Fallout addicting! The Linux copy uses the classic DOS version.

This is the last planned release before switching to the Fallout 2 engine, beta stage. Quick overview of this release: lots of cool features from Crafty's update to the Sfall plugin, Fallout Fixt now installs to a subfolder to avoid overwriting any of your Fallout data, lots more text fixes, some crash fixes, fixes for some goofs I made, a few more options for Fixes Only custom installs, and fo1_screen_refresh is back. Oh and Fixt is on GitHub now.

Scroll down for screenshots; below screenshots is the changelogs.

1. "Friendly Foe" always on, without the Perk (via Crafty's sfall upgrade)

Friendly Foe always! (from Crafty's sfall)

2. Free/Total weight displayed in inventory and trade screens (via Crafty's sfall upgrade)

Free/Total weight (from Crafty's sfall)

3. "Take All" & "Put All" buttons! (via Crafty's sfall upgrade)

4. Leveling past 21! (via Crafty's sfall upgrade)

Leveling past 21! (from Crafty's sfall)

5. More installer options allowed for Fixes Only custom-mode: Water timer, Vault 13 invasion.

Installer options (water timer, invasions)

6. More installer options allowed for Fixes Only custom-mode: Level and Title on levelup.

Installer options (messages etc.)

Changes since 0.80alpha:

- Fallout Fixt now installs in a subfolder titled "Fallout Fixt" of where you tell it to install. (Thanks Lexx!)
-- This means you won't overwrite anything from your current Fallout installation. Hooray!
-- You still need to select your current Fallout folder as the install directory, because Fixt needs to know where to find the main data files.

- Fallout Fixt installer no longer backs up savegames during install. This was causing issues on some systems.
-- The silver lining is that since it's being installed in a subfolder now, your original savegames will stay untouched regardless.

- Fixed crash when giving holodisk to Jon Zimmerman.
- Razor no longer dissapears forever.
- Fixed crash moving items between containers in inventory. (Thanks Crafty!)
- Talius' dialog options regarding the spy are now available as they should have been.
- No more broken Start Menu links.
- Display of title and/or level on levelup now works properly on Fixes Only installs.

- "Free combat running fix" in Sfall now disabled by default as it caused confusing functionality.

- Updated troubleshooting guide, and added index to top of file.
- URLs for Troubleshooting Guide and Changelog now open the file directly as a download rather than with Dropbox's file viewer.
- More text & dialog changes/fixes. 200+ files modified. (Thanks robbforce!)

Changes since alpha 7.1:

- Now has the most current files for Katja's graphics.

- Additional options available in the Fixes Only download's "MOSTLY PURIST" custom install:
-- Display player's level on levelup
-- Display player's title on levelup (Titles are from the Fallout manual)
-- Restore Vault 13 invasion of after 500 days (Default in Fallout v1.0)
-- Days Left for Water Chip can be 120 instead of 150. (Overseer says "4 to 5 months left" in the intro movie)

- Includes ddraw (Sfall) version 1.19, by Timeslip & improved by Crafty. This plugin provides many graphical and game enhancements and features, which are customizable, including the following and many more:
-- Hold down Shift to highlight items and containers on-screen.
-- Various commands can be bound to keys or key combinations. (All are disabled by default)
-- Can no longer press zero (0) to force-exit dialog.
-- Fixes for high CPU usage.
-- Display karma changes in the message box. (Disabled by default)
-- Buttons with "Take All" function similar to Fallout 2.
-- Remove inability of Vault Dweller to get critical successes or critical failures in the first few days of the game.
-- Doors can no longer dodge bullets.
-- Shows free weight as well as total weight in Barter and Inventory screens.
-- Can no longer use drugs to cheat with skill-gain books and getting Perks you shouldn't have access to.
-- Can no longer use the "A" key to run forever for free in combat.
-- Leveling past 21. (Disabled by default of course)
-- Friendly Foe functionality is now default and the Perk is removed from the game.

- "Fixes Only" installs can no longer start with 64000 Days Left for the Water Chip timer.
-- Existing "Fixes Only" games with >150 Days Left will be reset to 150.

- Fixed crash upon ending dialog with the dying mutant.
- Fixed some installer options that weren't working as intended.

- Made a change to attempt to fix an issue where Vats self-destruct timer would always set to 0 (instant), regardless of option chosen.

- Reverted an attempted fix of empty caravan encounters, that unintentionally caused *more* empty caravan encounters. :(
- Reverted 2 fixes/changes that caused unintentional issues gaining access to the Vats Control Computer.
- fo1_screen_refresh is once again included.
- Weapon Drop Mod no longer enabled by default on "Standard" and "Full" installations. My sincere apologies, I thought I already reverted this in the last release.

- All instances of "nevermind" changed back to "never mind". (Thanks Prisoner416)
- Several minor fixes to spelling and grammar.
- Additions to CREDITS.TXT (French translation team, SFALL team, Engine Conversion team, Breakin'Benny, gvx, Prisoner416)

- Removed debug message that displayed if player was accompanied by Brotherhood of Steel Assault Paladins.

- Added steps to Troubleshooting Guide regarding inability to save games, sound issues, and "Not enough disk space".

- Various behind-the-scenes changes in preparation for the full migration to Fallout 2 engine.
- Fallout Fixt source code (installers, scripts, batch files, reference materials, global variables, default settings) is now publicly available at Github.com
- Fallout Fixt dialog and text files are now publicly available at Github.com - For translations into non-English languages and tracking fixes/changes/additions to the English versions.

- All bugs, ideas, and feature requests are to be reported at the Fallout Fixt bug reports wiki at Falloutmods.wikia.com
- Bug reports entered on forum threads (RPGCodex/NMAFallout/GOG/Steam/etc) will no longer be considered 'official bug reports' for the following reasons:
-- EASE: It doesn't require registration and shouldn't take much longer than it would to post it on the forum.
-- EXCLUSIVITY: You're robbing the ability to interact with your bug report from people who don't visit that forum.
-- DUPLICATE WORK: Someone (usually me) has to to personally go through all the threads to add them to the wiki.
-- HUMAN ERROR: It's easy for thread-post bug reports to be accidentally overlooked or forgotten.
-- EFFICIENCY: It results in duplicate reports and requires cross-referencing multiple sources.
-- TIME: It's in everyone's best interest for me to spend my time focusing on actually fixing the bugs.

brashrooster Sep 19 2013 says:

I have this on CD and Fall Out 2 which I could just run under WINE but I some how feel like I should buy this just because I hate having to go dig out the CD's. Last time I found a on open divorce present from my last wife. Is it worth paying the money to run under Linux with out WINE? How about Fall Out 2? How about that divorce present it was a stack of psp games like StarOcean and Dungeon Siege. The irony is my psp shot craps long before I opened the present. Ok what's the verdict buy this great game when I already own two or three copies and fall out 2 mind you or risk diging out those same cd's and come across another divorce present (oh I know there is one more in there)? How about Fall Out 2 you got that sick puppy coming out for Linux too?

He doesn't disappear, he's just on the other side of the map. I had the same problem. Just move your cursor to the bottom left, and you'll find him.

Old classic. I played with it first in 2010, but I loved it. I think this game must be the idol of every game.
