Brand new to FO3 and G.E.C.K.

Post » Mon Nov 09, 2015 3:23 am

I just started playing FO3 a few days ago, so know nothing about the game yet. I recently discovered the G.E.C.K. wikia website, and am amazed/overjoyed that something like this exists :) .

Can anyone tell me of any major changes or patches/updates I should be aware of before I start downloading and using the G.E.C.K. software? I realize FO3 is an old game, and most of the stickied posts at the top of this G.E.C.K. section of the forums are dated over 4-5 years ago. I didn't want to start downloading/installing the G.E.C.K. and trying to use it, only to find out the hard way it no longer works and/or is not supported/updated any more...if that makes sense (I just woke up and am still getting the AM coffee in me).

Thank you for your time and assistance.

I moved ahead, and downloaded the basic G.E.C.K. software/program...and there is a separate download for Patch 1.5 for the G.E.C.K. program -- when I tried to download it my Antivirus Software (McAfee) went off and stopped there a known issue with the current 1.5 Patch? I have the basic program downloaded, but not the 1.5 Patch, until I can find out if someone has corrupted it or not?

Thank you for your time and assistance.

As long as your getting the update from here

You should be fine ... yes some anti-virus software gets a bit testy with Fallout related items ... especially from the Nexus. But I'm fairly certain you can trust all their content.
