ESP files selected in Data Files option won't stay selected?

#1Fabled_GamerPosted 1/10/2009 2:38:43 PM
When I boot up Fallout 3 and select the Data Files option to enable some ESP mods, I click ok after selecting them, and they don't stay selected? Any ideas as to why?

Launcher is buggy, just use FOMM.

Is that the Fallout Mod Manager?

Yes, get it. The F3 launcher is horrifically terribad. It manages to be worse than Oblivion's. Hell - it's worse than Morrowind's.
Shows the thought Bethesda puts towards modders.

I've never had a problem. I checked them once, and load up from a desktop .exe shortcut, and have all my mods working fine.
I think it has something to do with people tinkering with their rigs to squeeze every last bit of performance out of them, 'cause mine's a POS...

Yeah, well, it's actually just a display issue for the most part. The mods get unchecked on the launcher but are still enabled internally via the .txt file.

Of course, the Bethesda launcher is useless regardless of whether or not it works correctly, since it can't even manipulate simple load order.

Not only that, the launcher can't even list the damn mods in a vertical order if you have more than 10 or so.
At least, it doesn't on my PC, it bunches them up into an incoherent mess. Actually I should say it did, because now it's decided it doesn't want to list .esp files at all, leaving a blank window.
FOMM is really the only way to go.
