Hi Andrew - I’m afraid I don’t have good news.
This is an active open bug - The 3D engine that the Fallout series of games uses, has a problem in the presence of the DisplayLink software drivers. (see http://www.displaylink.org/forum/show… for another report). This problem will happen on any USB graphics device using the DisplayLink chipset (which is all the most popular ones).
The only workaround is to uninstall the DisplayLink software to play the game, then reinstall when done.
This is a software problem, and we expect DisplayLink will be able to fix it in a future driver version, however we can’t predict when. And we don’t want customers having to live with a problem like this, waiting for a driver fix with an unknown date.
So if you’d like to get a refund on the product, we totally understand. If you’re within 30 days of purchase, please just visit http://www.amazon.com/gp/css/returns/… - Amazon will process your return quickly. If you’re after the 30 days, please email your Amazon order # to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do everything we can.
If you’re willing to hang in for a fix, we’ll work with DisplayLink to get notified of their progress, and pass that on to you in the interim (but note – a problem like this often takes months to solve and get into a production driver release).
I’m very sorry you’re affected by this DirectX conflict. We’ll not leave you stuck with a product that doesn’t work for your needs. Just let us know what path you’d like to take.
