The classic a2 mod for FO is also a nice alternative, but doesn't fully give you the original feel. I like using both methods.

In my case it didn't work. I could not install it directly (as the installer wouldn't start) so I tried installing it in a VM, patching it to 1.1 and then to 1.2.5. Then copied it to my real machine and it would give the memory not enough error. If I selected compatibility settings for Windows XP SP2 then it would not show the error, but after a few screen blinkings the game crashed.

if your going to sue Compatibility, it should be xp sp3, but the Memory error happened on my old win7 machine, I didn't have any issues besides that.
also where are you trying to install, and what OS are you using? (windows 8 right?)

Yes. Windows 8.1 (64 bit).

Default installation or custom location?

Didn't get to the point where to select the installation location. It simply got stuck after the autorun... just pressed install and no Installer. I can see it in the task manager, but nothing on screen.
