Just noticed earlier that my character is unusually smaller than he used to be. I checked older saves, and he was regular sized but now he has to look up to pretty much everyone. I'm a Nord and it's too late to go back to the old saves before this happened. I have all the DLC and the game installed on my hard drive. Nothing seems to fix this problem, and it's just really lame how my unstoppable Dragonborn is a scrawny midget compared to everyone. :/ Anybody know how I can fix this? It seems any time I find a glitch, nobody else in the world has it. This time, the internet did not deliver. --- Xbox LIVE Gamertag: Devchar96 Now Playing: Skyrim (X360) and Modern Warfare 2 (X360)
If you activate an Enchanter while stealthed, it will change your height to crouching height, giving you midget vision. Go into third person, stealth, and unstealth and it should fix itself if that's what you did.
Just a question, are you a High Elf? The same thing happened to mine when I went to the thalmor embassy. I was visibly shorter than the nords and redguards, not even mentioning the Altmer that were there. It fixed itself when I dashboarded and reloaded. --- Times modded: 26(14 for saying R******d) Times Modded for a "Times Modded" signature: 6
I've encountered this glitch before. Couldn't find a true fix and it seemed to be location or time based.
Managed to isolate it to one save in the mountains near azura's shrine and after a half dozen times of seeing my character shrink when traveling to dawnstar, I witnessed my Nord grow to the size of an Altmer.
Things I've noticed that did not fix my glitch but are stated as possible fixes: changing to a werewolf, sitting in a chair, reloading, and clearing the cache. Face sculptor didn't help me either, try the others though.... they may work for you...
Supposedly it may also fix itself as you play the game; I wasn't that patient to find out if this were true and instead opted to lose 30 or so hours of gameplay to reload the save before the shrinking glitch.
I had it happen a few times due to the Arcane Enchanter thing, I did the switching view to 3rd/1st/3rd/1st and crouching / uncrouching and it fixed it on that save.
However, I usually make multiple save files right at the start of each new character, usually one just after I run inside the tower with Ulfric and Ralof, another outside of the Keep where you get to choose to go with either Hadvar or Ralof, and another after I've made my choice.
One time when I went back and reloaded one of those older saves (the one where you just made it into the tower with Ulfric), apparently I'd saved while I was crouched, and I could NOT get the height thing to fix itself. It was stuck like that permanently, so I just loaded on of the other save games. That's why I always make more than one save game for each area....just too many bugs in Skyrim not to do that.
