An exploit I recently found with the old 98' version of FO1. Looking to see if it still exists:

If you go to the glow with minimal radiation protection and leave, everyone knows you contract radiation sickness and typically die. On some runthrough after 5 on the way back I once again went to the glow. This time around I had some protection from radiation, but not 100%. With no surprise, I headed back with BAD radiation sickness. Only on the return trip did I realize I neglected to save on another file before heading back. (Yes, noobish I know). Having good equipment and being a fair way into my play-through. I determined that no matter what I would get back to the wasteland and not start a game over. After countless loads, and a TON of rad-away and countless puking and loss of hair by my character I managed to get the blessed message, "You feel better". So I pull up my stats.

To my surprise I had 10 for EVERY primary stat, but still had radiation poisoning. Anyone else ever experience this? (I tried this out on several other playthoughs of different characters with the same result.)
