Weapon Draw "Bug"

#11geocentric14Posted 2/5/2013 9:19:37 AM
I have not noticed any additional lag with the menus then i previously did. It just seems to be when equipping or changing weapons out of favorites or using hotkeys. I never seemed to notice a lag a year ago. I have no dlc downloaded.

I've been playing since launch and have all 3 DLCs. I've definitely noticed the lag it takes to switch between hotkeyed weapons, which only became noticeable after I installed Dragonborn. Since Dawnguard, I've noticed that load times for all areas, not just ones related to DLC, have increased significantly.

It's like Skyrim is being slowly grown over by a mossy coating of software bloat .

Nothing noticed differently with page turning or slide bar sliding or the B button menu?

Mine is starting to feel sluggish:(

The same thing has been happening to me, right after I downloaded Dragonborn.

This is probably the worst game killer for me because it makes switching from your weapon not even worth it. I think it has to do with a patch because I hadn't gotten any dlc when the problem started for me.

I believe I had patch 1.2 before taking a break and then when I came back it was 1.7. So some time between those patches caused it and I have yet to find the drive to delete my patches to test it.

Yeah, I need a new wireless adaptor before I start trying anything, even then, like you said, the driiiiiiiive.

Its to the point in my game where Ill be using my bow, then press left on the d-pad to equip my sword, and the shield immediately pops up in my left hand but my right hand stays empty for about 5-8 seconds, then it gets pulled out. Sometimes I can even throw a few punches before its drawn. Load times also seem to be getting a lot worse. I had a load screen so long today that dashboarded. Good thing for autosaves. Speaking of those, the autosave that happens every 15 minutes or so when you pull up the B menu is beginning to take forever, so long in fact that I think the game has crashed. I never had any problems until I got the DLCs, but Dragonborn seems to be the one that caused it all.

I really like Conjuration Weapons (Bound Bow, Bound Sword, Bound whatever) over those solid items.

Complety off topic but I finally connected my Xbox to the net for the first time in years and the first time since buying skyrim. Didn't get the dlc I wanted but I did notice my character started two arm blocking like a d bag after drinking the wherewolf blood. Another thread segway to my apparently unique problem sry. I just read the part about updates and was reminded because I suspect it was an update that did this. I built a couple shield users before I ever hooked skyrim to the web soooo....

Anyway no never had that draw bug sry :\

Please search topics for blocking differently?

Turn off auto save and see if it helps.

On the topic of the weapon swap draw delay I was googling and found a post on gamespot that mentioned it was a hotkey delay and that using the favorites menu or inventory pauses the game and let's it catch up. Don't know if it works but if I get the chance I'll test it tonight or in the morning.
