sooo... here's the deal: whenever i try to play fallout (#1), the screen at some point, turns 256k and goes kinda... you know, pinklike :D so the colors go really bright and wrong... same problem with elasto mania... could it be that i did not install directX 3a as the installationfile suggested? could it be? :bullshit:

I hunted around because I had the same problem, and the solution is actually pretty simple (but weird). Before playing Fallout, right-click the desktop and bring up the screen resolution screen. Then, launch Fallout like normal and the graphics should be fixed. It worked for me.

Another alternative is to use the DOS install and play it within DOSBox.

i used http://falloutmods.wikia.com/wiki/Sfall

which allows the engine to run in d3d9, seemed to fix some graphical glitches for me plus add some much needed usability features to fallout
