  1. Nevermind, problem solved. I've spent the past 4 hours or so trying to find an answer and finally decided to post to get some help, but I kept looking and found https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/615805-the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim/65409846. Short story, in case anyone else is having this problem, is I used prid xx00b852 and then disable and then enable. My front door appeared and everything was good when I went inside.
  2. Grrrr...Windstad Manor has invisible foundation and doors... I don't have a save from right before building so I'd rather not go that way if I don't have to. I've tried disabling every mod, but nothing seems to work. I was thinking I could use the console to try to disable/enable the foundation and doors, but I can't find the refid. Also, I should mention that the walls are solid from the outside, but from the inside they are ghosted and I can walk through them. My install is STEP Extended. I do have a couple of other mods installed, but none of them should affect Hearthfires. Any ideas?

  4. Ok it seemed to be running good, but now that I've settled in I noticed that I am still getting some lag outdoors. What's weird is that it doesn't seem to matter what I change it doesn't improve. Also, I've noticed that I will see a creature attacking me on the HUD (the red dot), but they don't pop up visually until they are almost on top of me. Any thoughts?
  5. I am sooo happy right now...lol. Well, in case anyone is interested I'll tell you what happened. I noticed that my RAM said 12GB installed, but only 8GB was available. I thought I might have a bad stick, but when I opened my case I noticed one stick wasn't seated properly. Once seated the triple channels came up. I still need to dial down the reserved memory, but it's running good. I lost my first 2 fights because I'd gotten so used to the lag I kept overcompensating my movements...lol. Out of curiosity, what happens if my reserve memory is set too high? Now I only have one other thing to figure out...since the graphics and resolution are so good now, how do I get the women to look hot AND still realistic... ;-)
  6. I can try it. Right now I'm set at 512, so I guess I'll up it to 1024.
  7. Well, I did it. I got the card, it's got 4GB of VRAM. I also upgraded my RAM to 12GB. I can run everything at max settings, but I still get some lag outdoors or when I turn fast. Any suggestions on how to alleviate that? I've tried dialing down the distance, but it didn't really help. Here's my setup: Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1 CPU Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67GHz 46 °C Bloomfield 45nm TechnologyRAM 12.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 532MHz (7-7-7-19)Graphics S27B350 (1920x1080@59Hz) 4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 (MSI) 31 °CStorage 746GB Western Digital WDC WD30EZRX-00AZ6B0 (SATA) 25 °C 931GB Western Digital WDC WD1000DHTZ-04N21V0 (SATA) 26 °C Hmmm...just noticed my RAM says dual-channel when it should say triple... I'm looking into this now, but any other suggestions would be welcome. Let me know if I should post my ini files.
  8. :-) Thanks. The extra RAM will have to come later, but this is the best I can do since I won't be able to afford another top-end system anytime in the near future. I appreciate the responses.
  9. I did a little online "shopping" to see how much it would set me back, so it might not be an issue soon. I had no idea how cheap RAM was now, though the card will still set me back a bit. I'm planning a card in the 900 series and a RAM upgrade while I'm at it. Still cheaper than a new computer. Out of curiosity, you think I'd be able to run at Ultra if I replaced my 2 cards with a single 4GHz GTX 960?
  10. I will give your suggestions a try. I thought the textures were supposed to be "optimized" to reduce all that load. Ah well... my previous STEP install was something like 2 years ago, I honestly don't remember the version number.
  11. I guess that would explain my current problem, although I'm at a loss as to how I was able to run the graphics at high with a previous version of STEP (and only got a bit of lag occasionally).
  12. I have everything set for the lowest level, and it ran STEP fine before (in fact, I was running at High). Right now I'm wishing I hadn't decided to update STEP. Also, according to STEP minimum system requirements I should be good. My core is better than I3 (I7), I have more than 4 GHz RAM (6), and I've got 2 GHz VRAM (1 GHz on each card). I'm still hoping someone may have some ideas...
  13. Hi, all. First post, but never really needed to before. I'm kinda at the end of my rope. I stopped playing Skyrim for a while, but started up again recently. Everything was fine till I added a few mods I found interesting. So after going nuts with crashes and all I decided that STEP should be much better than it was when I did it before. After deleting everything to start a fresh install and following the guide closely I've still got issues. No crashes, but I've got a lot of lag (I had some before, but this is much worse). I've tried several different things, changing the setting in skrim.ini and skyrimpref.ini, with and without ENB, different setting in enblocal.ini, with and without SLI enabled, with and without VSync, different combinations of stuff. I even dialed down my graphics distance so low I'm getting attacked by bandits I can't even see. I'm really hoping someone takes pity on me...lol. My computer is several years old, but it was pretty hot when I got it. Not sure what info you might need from me, but I'll list a couple of the obvious: CPU: Intel I7 920 2.7GHz RAM: 6GHz Video: 2x nVidia GTS 250 I could post my ini files, but bear in mind the settings have changed many times while trying to figure this out (and it doesn't seem to make a huge impact).
  14. Nevermind. I hadn't played in a long time and wasn't familiar with MO. I got it now.
