You only need one of the plugin, so pick your poison.
Basically, it does not matter which custom race you're using, using this will get you past the ending and start Broken Steel.
This script adds an catch all part at the end, so it'll play the last bink of the picture of you and your dad. This is the hang up of using any custom races when you finish "take it back" quest. For whatever reason Besthesda wrapped the Broken Steel starting scripts inside the checks of your gender and race for playing these binks, instead of putting it outside. This means the Broken Steel quest starter script is actually in the endingbinksscript 8 times, for each of the 8 instances of the different gender/race iteration of the binks. Custom races will fail the checks of "if getisrace xxx == 1" therefore bypassing the Broken Steel starting scripts... 8 times ;o So the logic of my script is that when your race does not equal to the 4 default races, it'll play a generic bink***, then Start the Broken Steel script. So it should work with any current and future custom races (including child, old, raider, etc).
Broken Steel. duh :D
Install: Drop into Fallout3/data folder. Enable in FOMM and make sure it is LAST on the load list.
Note, you do not have to keep this plugin running at all. Just enable it when you are about to finish "Take it Back!", save, and disable it once you're through the ending movies.
****Mini troubleshooting guide.****
You need this when:
-You are stuck on the floor of the memorial after the ending movies and you're running a custom race.
This doesn't fix, but fixed by latest patch (V1.6 at time of writing):
-Stuck at the Citadel under the bed.
-Lyons won't follow you into Rotunda.
This doesn't fix pt2, and one of your mods is the cause of the brokenness:
-Followers don't want to activate that console.
-Rothchild doesn't give you the quest or missing.
There are thousands of mods, and I don't know which one is the cause of your problems. Update your mods first, then start disabling one mod at a time until things work. Or you can try this: http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=6470
This SOMETIMES fix:
-Broken Steel is enabled, but when you activate that console, it just send you to title screen after the movies. This is when one of your mods used recompile all script, which overwrote the changes made by BS. My fix may lets you continue. However, not disabling the offending mod may screw up the game because some parts of BS may depend on the changed scripts.
Freeplay After MQ- Duh.
Achievement remover. -(http://www.fallout3nexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=3813 JustinOther made an achievement removed version of my fix to be used with his mod. See files section here.)
Games for Windows Live- As noted by Kew in the comments. The Broken Steel requirement in the plugin header will require you to move the Broken Steel plugin into the Fallout3/data folder or you will crash upon launching FO3. Use "Games for Windows Live disabler" to move it if you don't know how do it manually.
7/26- Gender check returns for gender specific biks, but more efficient than the vanilla way.
