I'm finding it difficult to get the PC ver of OA from your link. I get to the Games for Windows Marketplace, and I'm going to have to buy points. The OA icon is there, but I don't see a point cost. When I go to buy points, EVERYTHING refers to X-Box points, games, etc. I guess I'm just going to have to plop down $25 and see what happens. I just hope I don't end up with a X-BOX version of OA...

On the other hand, if it all works, thanks for the link!

I had to call the place to get help in buying points and down loading the patch. It will take you to the xbox page that is where you down load it from, but if it takes you to the xbox 360 you are on the wrong website. I found calling them to be easier then trying to figure it out myself. The first time I bought the points on my own it did it for xbox 360, had to call and get a refund. Sorry I do not have the number, but it should be in the support area of the website.

Hope this helps

I followed PWizard's link (see below), went through all the steps, including establishing the requisite Games for Windows and assorted stuff, paid for 1000 MS points, and finally downloaded the OA "add-in" package, but when it was done I couldn't find the file(s) anywhere. I went back to the site and set the download directory to something simple and re-downloaded the OA pack again. When done, still no OA files. So I downloaded it one more time with a different destination folder and again no luck. So I did full search of my C: drive looking for *operation*.* and found some system files but no Fallout files. By now I had pulled the remaining hair on my head out of its socket and danced around the fire I had started in my patio until I fell from exhaustion. I returned to the beast, an IBuyPower gaming rig (4-core Intel, Nvidia 280, 4GB RAM and.....VISTA Home Premium (which I passionately hate)), and tried another search, this time on *anchorage*.*, and low and behold I found 4 files: Anchorage - Main.bsa, Anchorage - Sounds.bsa, Anchorage.esm and Operation_-Anchorage.png. These files alone were burried 9 levels under C:\users below 2 directories that were just named with numbers!

I copied them to my Fallout 3 data folder and started the game up and with in a few minutes I got the new Quest (without running LIVE from within the game - so far).

What/Who in the name of all that is sane decided THIS was a "good idea"??? I've never, in 25+ years of computer gaming, seen anything remotely as obtuse and inexplicable as this system of distrubiting commercial software. As if we don't have enough problems in this world, we don't need to make gaming on our expensive PCs any harder than it is.

Any comments?

That is so true I had the same problem. Instead of doing what you did I just used the live connection. It should have been simple click on points click on add on and done. What a pain in the butt the way it is set up.
