Was inspired to install Fallout 3 after this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnS-gf6FLLY&feature=related

Got so close! Install went well, but I run into a problem at the end. It tells me that the disc has copy protections and that prevents Wine from running the game. When I run it, it gets as far as the "Please Stand By" screen in the very beginning then crashes.

Any thoughts?

I also never got the prompt to patch the game...

The installation script has changed since the one you saw on youtube. Now there is no need to patch Wine in order to run Fallout 3 and patching Fallout 3 is in other script.

Please give:
-graphic card and drivers you use
-version of the game (ie. GOTY)

I'm running Ubuntu 10.4 (64 bit)

Video card: GeForce 8600 GTS (not sure about the drivers, must be the most current)

I have the GOTY edition as an .iso, but I have also purchased the game via Steam.

Having the exact same problem, after installing everything through POL it tells me that the disk has protection and POL doesn't encourage anything illegal. Then when I try to start it I get the main screen and nothing else.

I have Ubuntu 10.04
ATI 5750 with the drivers installed by the hardware system (ATI/AMD FGLRX proprietary drivers)
I have the steam GOTY version of fallout.

I also tried following the wine how to to the letter and the game still doesn't work...any ideas?

Thank you!
