Fix for Fallout 3 randomly freezing

It seems that Fallout 3 does not handle being run on a processor with more than 2 cores, which leads to random freezing.

Fix: Edit the fallout.ini file in “C:Users(your name)DocumentsMy GamesFallout 3” (Windows 7 and above)

In the [General] section, locate the bUseThreadedAI=0 line and change it to bUseThreadedAI=1

Below that, add iNumHWThreads=2.

Save the file and restart Fallout 3.

Note that if you’re having issues where Fallout crashes after starting a new game, it’s most likely due to incompatible video hardware, most notably trying to run it with Intel-based graphics.

Skype no audio and crashing on OpenSUSE 12.3

Skype for OpenSUSE (download link) may have no audio and frequently crash. This issue is caused by missing packages for the audio subsystem.

Solution: install the packages alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit and pavucontrol

sudo zypper in alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit pavucontrol

Please feel free to leave any feedback in the comments section below.

Thanks!
