    No, they did NOT remove "Brian Fargo Presents" or the Interplay logo.

    ABOUT THIS RELEASE

    This Bethesda Softworks release of Fallout 2 contains the original Interplay 1.02 version of the game. This release has been pre-patched with sfall version 2.19a and the Fallout 2 high resolution patch version 4.1.8.



    ENABLING HIGH RESOLUTIONS

    Because we recognize that many of you may not want to use the high-resolutions enabled by this patch, you may choose to play the game in its original form by selecting “Play Classic Version” when launching from Steam.

    To increase the resolution:



    From the title screen, click on “Options”:



    Then in the top part of the options screen, click the button labeled “screen settings”:



    From here you can choose any resolution supported by your computer’s video card, or even a custom resolution if you like.

    For more information on video options enabled by the High Resolution patch, refer to the f2_res_README.rtf included in your Fallout 2 installation directory.



    CLOUD SAVING WITH STEAM

    As part of this re-release of the game, we have enabled Cloud Synchronization through Steam. Save games created by Fallout 2 will automatically be uploaded to Steam’s servers when you exit. Logging in with your Steam account on another machine will sync those save games automatically.

    There are some quirks to this system, however. Fallout 2 saves games within the install directory. This means that multiple Steam logins on the same PC will access the same save files. If you need to back up your save games, you can find them in your [installdir]\DATA\SAVEGAME\ directory.

    If you need to disable Cloud Synchronization, open the Steam client and right click on the game in your library. Select “Properties” and then click the “Updates” tab. Un-check the “Enable Cloud Synchronization” box on the bottom of this tab.

    To re-enable it, just click the check box again.



    MANUAL

    A PDF version of the original Fallout 2 manual is contained in the Manual directory of your installation.

    5. License



    ABOUT THIS RELEASE

    This Bethesda Softworks release of Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel is identical to Interplay's 1.27 release of the game.



    CLOUD SAVING WITH STEAM

    As part of this re-release of the game, we have enabled Cloud Synchronization through Steam. Save games created by Fallout Tactics will automatically be uploaded to Steam’s servers when you exit. Logging in with your Steam account on another machine will sync those save games automatically.

    There are some quirks to this system, however. Fallout Tactics saves games within the install directory. This means that multiple Steam logins on the same PC will access the same save files. If you need to back up your save games, you can find them in your [installdir]\CORE\USER\ directory.

    If you need to disable Cloud Synchronization, open the Steam client and right click on the game in your library. Select “Properties” and then click the “Updates” tab. Un-check the “Enable Cloud Synchronization” box on the bottom of this tab.

    To re-enable it, just click the check box again.

    These do actually seem to be better than the Herve editions, though. No Killap patch theft.

    They should have included Mash's hi-res patch for FO:T also, though.

    I actually don't mind this at all. Sometimes getting the older games to work can be a monumental pain in the ass. If there is a painless way to play them without having to fuck around with DOSBox or creating custom resolutions or not having to deal with stupid bugs (for example, getting them to work when you have a dual monitor setup) then I say go for it. This isn't a reason for me to buy them all over again, but I can see the appeal for people who want to play them and don't want to fuck around with downloading and installing texture packs and workarounds.

    The rape is already done, this is merely bethesda wiping its dick with Fallout's torn-off clothes after finishing.

    At least they are available again. Hopefully they will appear on GOG too. And including high-res patch is cool.

    They're actually NOT available yet as far as I can tell from people who don't own them on Steam. But this is a sign they will be re-released on Steam again very soon. Perhaps tomorrow, for the sale.

    I'm not even butthurt anymore. Time moves on, there are other franchises to look forward to and I still can cherish the old FO (unless they'll decide to go full derp and do "true" HD remakes) plus whatever Obsidian spits out in collaboration with Bethesda.

    They did? Let me repeat that the image in the OP is not the main menu of the game - it's a splash screen that you see before launching the game.

    I'm seeing a main menu that's identical to this: http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/fallout/screenshots/gameShotId,324784/

    What do you mean, "they were already working"? I have the GoG versions and I had to do quite a bit of post-installation bullshitting to get them to run. I was downloading resolution packs and whatnot. And I still had issues getting it to run on a dual screen setup, since apparently two monitors was fucking up the resolution.

    I didn't download them off steam, but I suspect the same thing was true -- I would have had to go hunting for XYZ and started installing shit to get the best experience. Am I wrong?

    I wonder if Chris Avellone, the most feared bounty hunter, becomes Todd Howard in the new Steam edition. I'm sure he has a bucket on his head to boot.

    I don't get the big deal, it's not like they've rewritten the credits just the copyright/license information. And, yes, Bethesda owns the franchise. Steam Cloud is kind of funny since even New Vegas doesn't use it.
