I recently purchased this version... and am going to install it tonight and check out part 1.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallout_2

I was reading this page for part 2 and came across this:

"International Versions and Censorship
Some non-US versions of the game were censored due to local regulations on violence or the portrayal of children in computer games. In particular, the UK and German versions both had children removed from the game and had some violence options disabled. This affected the gameplay for certain missions in game. This was particularly noticeable in Modoc where the mission to rescue Jonny from the wishing well was crippled. Since the original release of the game, fan made patches have made it possible for owners of European versions of the game to play the game as originally intended. Despite these patches being available, the US version is arguably more desirable for collectors."

Does anyone know if I bought some censored version (if so I assume I need to look up some patches then, don't think I saw any on Filefront) or am I good to go?

I've bought plenty of repackaged/old games but this is the first one I've aquired on this 'White Label'.


Thanks to anyone who knows!
:D

Damn, "I got the same thing in the GSP White Label deal.

Kinda mad it was the UK version. but thanks to NMA I was able to fix it right up.

THANKS NMA!"

Now on to find this fix from this NMA site I guess.... sh*te!



If anyone else accidentally bought the UK version: I hope this helps.

Well its the UK version (It's labeled Fallout Collection, Not Trilogy) and its labeled at 16+ which isn't "M" levels like here so im betting its the censored version.

I don't understand why you just didn't buy it from newegg, $6 difference and you get the US version. Probably shipped quicker aswell...

No kiddin... I feel like Captain Tool right about now... I picked up this White Label version at Frys for freaking $20.

Don't usually have to worry about a game being censored is the reason I never looked into it, and only learned about this when reading the .wiki page yesterday... sucks.

I super appreciate the link! I'd done a search on that forum and didn't come up with anything. I take it from a post I'd read on that forum and from the patches on that page you linked, that only version 1 is censored...


Sometimes I fail at searching... as was the case yesterday... to my defense... only spent about 5 mins before leaving work so.... :o



thanks again:cool:
