Alternate desktop icon:
Create a shortcut to the game on the Windows 95/98 desktop. Then, use the
Settings/Control Panel/Display/Effects options to turn on "Large icons". The
desktop icon for the game will turn into a new graphic.
Original Fallout screensaver:
Access the PipBoy and stay at that screen to eventually see the old Fallout
screensaver on the PipBoy screen.
Hold [Shift] and click on the "Credits" button to hear various comments from
the development team.
Hint: Unlimited money:
Go to the "Broken Hills". Walk to the right until you reach the screen where
the miners are waiting for you to clear the mine. Walk into the mine and then
run straight to the right. Do not t worry about the rocks that seem to block
your path, they are there just to make you think it is the end of the road. If
you walk close to them, you can see that you can walk past the rocks. There is
a man in there who is not aware of the year. Wake him up, and when he has ran
out of the mine, walk up to the footlocker and get the ore out of it. Walk out
of the mine and back to the first screen. At the bottom of the screen just
below the traders lies the "Broken Hills Ore Refinery". Walk into the refinery
and talk to the head ghoul (he is in the office). Sell the ore to him, and
then sleep for 25 hours. After waking up, talk to the ghoul again to get your
ore back. He will ask if he can buy the ore because the city needs it and will
offer you your $1000 plus an extra 500. Take the $500 extra and then talk to
the ghoul again. If done correctly, he will make the offer again. Take the
money and then talk to him again for another offer. Repeat this to get as much
money as needed. Make sure never to give it to him for free or settle for the
$1000. If you do, the offer will not appear again. Note: This trick may not
work if the game has been patched.
Hint: Easy skill points and levels:
Gain a level and wait for the screen with the perks to appear. Highlight the
perk and click "Done" on the perk screen. However, click "Cancel" on the main
screen. Click back to the character screen and the perk screen will appear
again. Repeat these step to gain unlimited levels and 99 skill points.
Hint: Stimpacks and antidote:
Give Mayron as many ingredients for the stimpacks and antidote as needed, and
he will create them.
More starting items:
Go to the starting temple with an established character. Place any item you
want to start with in the pots and chests. Start a new game, go inside the
temple, and save the game in any slot except for the one you moved the items
from. Exit the game. Go to the directory in which you saved the game (slot01,
02, and so on). Move the Artemple.sav to the slot you saved the new game to
and move the pre-existing game somewhere else. Reload the game and start the
new game. Go to the pots where you placed the items and they should be there
