How To: Install Operation Anchorage for Steam Using Games for Windows Live [Annoying] | Posted at 10:01 PM
It took me around 20 minutes to find any shred of information about how to install Operation Anchorage to my Fallout 3 game on Steam.
Here's how to do it:
So, first you need to download the file from Games for windows LIVE file that is at around 594MB. Once you do that, I found my files at C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR LOG-ON NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\XLive\DLC\425307d6\00000002\d96e635 e19d298dac6820680085d45c5d36b9130\Content
I just copied those files to X:\Steam\steamapps\common\fallout 3\Data
When you launch it from Steam, on the first little box that appears, that allows you to play; Choose Data Files, and activate the one called Anchorage.esm in addition to the Fallout3.esm. Then launch the game.
Then I started Fallout 3 from Steam. After I loaded the save I wanted to play - I started the LIVE while still being in-game. Half a second after I was connected to LIVE I got the radio signal in-game.
Note: You need to be able to see hidden files and folders to find the files, btw. Open any random folder, like My Documents. Tools -> Folder Options -> View -> Scroll down until you find Show Hidden Files and Folders.
A million thanks to Kaguya for doing all of this for us.
