Buggy/CTD's constantly

#1DeathsHelperPosted 3/16/2012 12:07:46 AM
I don't know what has happened but suddenly Skyrim has been almost unplayable for me. I don't know if it's mods conflicting for me or something with Steam or what but I'm afraid to do anything that might give me a CTD.

Several problems are:
Using Shouts but nothing happens
Summoning 2 Daedra Lords and CTDing
When I walked down a road after killing everything at Fort Neugrad when I got to a certain point I just crashed. Everytime I played and tried to do something different it was the same thing, once I reached a certain point I crashed.
And this might have something to do with it too: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/615805-the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim/62255275

Not only that but when I've gone to Steam to update the mods I have there it keeps on downloading them even if I checked 20 minutes ago. Sometimes it says they're fine and sometimes it has to update them all over again.

All of this came pretty much out of nowhere, at least that I can tell. Do you think this is due to conflicting mods, Steam, both, or something else?

You should post your PC specs, also the mods you are using.

I think that some mods have been turning off or not applying. Whenever I load my game it will do the "This save doesn't have previous content" spiel. For example, the Vampire Effect should give me some spells but they aren't there. I haven't drank anyone's blood to see if it will add them but they're gone.

There's been a noticeable FPS drop on top of being buggy as Hell. Someone help me on this please.

When using a lot of mods. Its always best to use BOSS and then wyre bash to male a bashed patch. Even then Ctd's will happen...I don't have a ton installed and none really conflict with one another and I still get a random ctd here and there. Anyway try creating a bashed patch...that might help your problem!

I've been using BOSS for a while now but I haven't used Wyre Bash, is it difficult to use?

It is a little overwhelming at first...however somone made a topic about it just last night and a kind user wrote him a very simple, good guide and even linked him to one with pictures. I'd search for that..it couldn't have gone far. However when using a lot of mods creating a bashed patch is recommended.


Also note, boss is not working as intended right now. There's a workaround you have to do (I think somone wrote it in a response in the topic but I could be wrong).

Also...I really dont have experience with the steam workshop. I use skyrim nexus with the Nexus mod manager for all of my mods...it works a lot better IMO. Also make sure none of your mods require skyrim script extender. That could be an issue as well if you aren't launching the game via that.

I know that SkyUI uses Skse but as far as I can tell that's the only one that uses it, I could be wrong though. And I do make sure to use Skse to start each play.

I also have Script Dragon for a mod, I don't know if that'll cause any problems.

I found that topic and used Wyre Bash, there are a few mods that it merged but I haven't played Skyrim yet to find out.
