Bummer the guy didn’t find the hotkeys, it makes the game so much more enjoyable to play.
That is too funny and I really can’t explain it. I’ve played through Fallout completely maybe 9 times now, started and run at least 20-30 characters through parts of the game, and simply created and played around with at least a dozen other ‘test’ character builds since I got it a year or two after it came out. I only got a hold of F2 last year and I am now on my 3rd play-through as of yesterday since I ended up spending most of last weekend messing with it when I wasn’t watching Heroes on DVD. The skill thing came up because I decided I wanted to pick a door open to save some dynamite, no matter how many times I had to reload the save.
Up until last night (after reading through the thread) had I never once used the keyboard for anything other than opening the main menu while playing through either game. I still don’t even know where my manuals are! Good thing I discovered* I can press F1…
*Yes, I was going through and pushing every key on the keyboard to find out what each one did. Just in case I missed something else.
He found the manuals now, all is well 🙂
