Fallout 3 GOTY script for Protonfixes

Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition script for Protonfixes

This is ONLY for the Game of the Year Edition! Regular Fallout 3 edition is not supported/tested.

How to install

If you already have a working setup of Fallout 3 GOTY, I do not recommend using this script as it may break your current mods etc.

Before using this script, MAKE A BACKUP of your saves in steamapps/compatdata/22370/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/My Documents/My Games/Fallout3/Saves. Then delete the directory steamapps/compatdata/22370 and/or reinstall the game in Steam.

Install LATEST Protonfixes (anything newer than December 2018 for Proton 4.11-12). If you're on Arch Linux: yay -S protonfixes-git. This installs a Python module that we will load into Proton. Find your steamapps/common/Proton XXX directory, where XXX is the version number. Make a copy of user_settings.sample.py and rename it to user_settings.py. Open it in a text editor and add import protonfixes at the end. Comment the line with WINEDEBUG if you want, it impacts performance to have debugging enabled.

Alternatively, you can install a build of ProtonGE which includes protonfixes.

Save the script seen below as ~/.config/protonfixes/localfixes/22370.py.

Open a terminal and run (Arch Linux tested) tail -f /tmp/dumps/${USER}_stdout.txt. This shows output from Steam Client in realtime. Now, run Fallout 3 GOTY in Steam. You should see some blue output in the terminal, this is from the Protonfixes script.

When run first time, it downloads a modpack that includes basic mods, a custom ENBSeries config, scripts and more. See README djazz's fallout 3 goty modpack proton.txt for details on what's included.

If you want to run the game in borderless mode, open Data/FOSE/Plugins/OneTweak.ini and set BorderlessWindow=true. This does not work with D9VK/DXVK.

The following launch argument environment variables have been added:

  • ENB=1 enables ENB (installs some extra winetricks, disables d3d9-wrapper, as they use same filename)
  • LAUNCHER=0 Disables launcher, launch the game directly.

Example: ENB=1 LAUNCHER=0 %command%

This modpack and collection of fixes has been compiled by djazz.
It contains the following:
> Fallout Script Extender (FOSE) (v1.3 beta 2)
This is a scripting framework for many popular mods/plugins.
> F3TF - Fallout 3 Tick Fix (FOSE Plugin) (v1.3)
This fixes microstuttering, and allows the game to be exited faster.
Read more: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/23542
> OneTweak for FO3 (FOSE Plugin) (v2.0.0.1)
Borderless Windowed Mode for Fallout 3. This makes it possible to Alt+Tab out of the game.
Enable this by editing OneTweak.ini and set BorderlessWindow to true.
This disables regular fullscreen and windowed mode.
Does not work with D9VK/DXVK, hence why it's disabled by default here.
Read more: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/21337
> NVAC - New Vegas Anti Crash (FOSE Plugin) (v7.5.1.0)
Implements structured exception handling and sanity checking to reduce frequency of game crashes.
> Updated Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch (v2.3.2)
This mod fixes errors and bugs in the FO3 + DLC esms.
Cut content is reviewed/restored only if fixable and able to blend into the game perfectly.
Read more: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/19122
> Compiled fixes for Fallout 3 (v1.0)
Fixes more things in the game.
Read more: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/23584
> Tinker Joe fix for UOF3P (v1.0)
Fixes the issue where you can't recruit RL-3.
Use this only if running the unofficial patch.
Read more: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/23584
> Safe - Safe Regulator HQ (v1.0)
Disables two animal spawn points at the Regulator HQ.
Early in the game they are usually only dogs but late in the game they may spawn Death Claws.
It's odd seeing these creatures using the HQ as their hangout out spot when turning in fingers.
Read more: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/11853
> djazz - Jury St. Station train fix (v1.1)
Fixes a rendering glitch that causes some train carts to go invisible in a certain angle.
Compatible with UF3P. Modifies JuryStStation02's roommarkers and adds a portal.
Here is a video of the glitch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYQkVc4j0lw
> d3d9-wrapper (v1.14)
Limits fps to 60.
Source: https://github.com/ThirteenAG/d3d9-wrapper
> Updated OGG/Vorbis libraries
It's said that this improves performance.
> Force GPU to NVIDIA 980 Ti (intel-fix.reg)
This is needed to make the game run on Intel graphics.
When using with ENB, this also fixes the bad water rendering on AMD gpus.
> NTCore 4GB Patch (v1.0.0.1)
Patches the Fallout 3 exe to support more than 2 GB of memory.
If using Steam Play/Proton, set PROTON_FORCE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE=1 instead.
Read more: https://ntcore.com/?page_id=371
> Custom ENB (uses v0.322 of ENBSeries)
Based on Atmos ENB and Midhrastic ENB.
Enable by setting "ENB=1 %command%" in Steam Launch Arguments.
Modify enbseries.ini to tweak settings.
You can toggle it on and off with Shift+F12 in-game.
Open the in-game config menu with Shift+Enter.
> Fallout3.fose.exe
This is a shortcut that launches the game with FOSE loaded
Fallout3.exe should be a symbolic link to Fallout3.fose.exe
See Fallout3.fose.py for source code.
Compiled with PyInstaller.
> BOSS (v2.3.2)
Setting load order. Only executed when modpack has been downloaded.

When I install protonfixes-git on Arch and run the 22370.py script stored in ~/.config/protonfixes/ I get the error:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "22370.py", line 4, in <module> from protonfixes import util File "/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/protonfixes/__init__.py", line 13, in <module> 'waitforexitandrun' in sys.argv[1], IndexError: list index out of range
If I install protonfixes and then run the script, I get no output in the terminal but it doesn't appear that the script did anything. There is no FOSE folder I can find and there are no .exe files other than the original Fallout3.exe file. I noticed when I started ipython and imported all of the modules in the script and then ran
os.makedirs(os.path.join(util.protonprefix(), 'drive_c/users/steamuser/My Documents/My Games/Fallout3')) I get the error:

Traceback (most recent call last)

    676         return self.decodevalue(value)
    677 

KeyError: 'STEAM_COMPAT_DATA_PATH'

Steam is installed to my root directory but the game is installed on another drive that is mounted to /media/MY_USERNAME/Linux. Do I need to set the environment variable or store the 22370 file elsewhere? I tried to copy it to different locations and run it nearer to the steam directory but I got the same results.
EDIT:
Should "protonfixes" be installed through pip3 as well? When I have protonfixes-git installed (protonfixes hasn't been updated since 2018) attempt to import all of the packages using lines 4-19 in ipython I get:

IndexError                                Traceback (most recent call last)

There is a steamapps/common/ directory in both my home folder and the directory where I have been installing games. a "Proton 4.11" directory is on the mounted non-OS drive and is where I edited the user settings file since I have had the most success running Proton 4.11 with Fallout 3.
