Improvement in the Fallout 3 crash problems! Yes!

I downloaded some new drivers for my Creative X-Fi and still had crashes. Then I noted that the driver install had taken my 7.1 analog speaker setup and reverted to the default 2.1. I switched it back to 7.1 and am noticing the game seems much more stable. It used to crash a lot if you did a rapid turn using the mouse. Now it seems to be handling this much better. Perhaps the mismatch between the number of speakers being used and the default configuration created some sort of conflict.

All I know is that it runs better and I spend more time exploring the wastelands and less time reloading after lockups. So, if you are having lockups, try checking the speaker setup to make sure it matches your installed speaker configuration. Be sure to check this if you update the Creative drivers.
