Bethesda has released several patches for Fallout 3, the latest being Version 1. Note that you can check fallout 3 fo3edit fo3masterupdate.exe new patches at any time using the Live option in the in-game menu.
As soon as any more patches are released I will update this section with the details accordingly. The particular implementation of SecuROM used in Fallout 3 doesn’t incorporate any other DRM or online activation requirements – the only noticeable aspect is the disk check component which can easily be bypassed legally. To do this, in Windows XP right-click on the Fallout 3 launch icon, select Properties, and change the Target box to point to the file above. Now whenever you launch the game it will skip the disk check, skip the launcher and launch into the main game menu. There is no need for any No-CD or other cracked executables, and this method also doesn’t hinder patching of the game in the future. Fallout 3, similar to the Knights of the Nine expansion pack for Oblivion.
