Fallout 3 (PC) Walkthrough

3. Story walkthrough

Alrighty boys and girls, time to get started. We are going to begin at the beginning because it is a very good place to start. Please refer to the Hints & “Not-so-Pro” Tips to make sure you are fully prepared for this task. For those having a hard time following along… No worries. I’ve added a video walkthrough at the end for your viewing pleasure.

Step 1 – Insert disc and boot up Fallout 3 (PC). If you haven’t installed Fallout 3 (PC) you will be prompted to do so. This is about a fifteen minute process and most likely will require a re-boot of your PC once completed.

If you have the downloaded version from GfWL you can skip the “insert disc”. Depending on your internet connection, downloading and installing the GfWL version can sometimes take upwards of a few hours. However games downloads can be paused and resumed at any time, so find a time when your internet has the least amount of usage for minimum download time.

After installing there is an update for the game. Again, your PC may re-boot after downloading this update.

Step 2 – Sign in. This is probably the most important step to insure that the achievements unlock on the correct profile.

Step 3 – Wait for the game menu to load. This process shouldn’t take too long but the stretches and warm – ups found in the “Hints and Not-so-Pro Tips” page are a great usage of time.

Step 4 – Access the console command by hitting the ~ button on your keyboard. This button is usually found on the left side of the keyboard above the “Tab”, below the “Esc”, and to the left of the number “1” buttons.

Step 5 – Type in

addachievement 1

and hit the “Enter” button

*NOTE* There is no space between the word “add” and “achievement”. However there is a space after the “addachievement” and before the number.
