  1. And yes, everything was fine all the way through section 2.M, and fell apart after 2.N Patches (but remember that as I mentioned at this part I also had to do all of the ini tweaks I should've done in 1.D). After the CTDs I've tested to launch the game yesterday without any of the mods of 2.N and with vanilla INIs. But, I'm new to this, so I might have retested improperly. So I'll doublecheck it and try this again, with different combinations to try to narrow down the problem, ss you suggested . I'll be back soon with the results. Thanks Well, here is the weird part. I've unchecked every mod from the 2.N Patches from my left pane, then ran Loot, used all the INIs suggested by the guide, launched Skyrim, created a new game, and guess what? The problem persists. Was this suppose to make the game run well, like it was during the first time I was installing STEP? Because if it should, now I'm really confused.
  2. Hey, thanks for the answer. As I said, after the CTDs I tested to completely and carefully remove my ENB preset with this tool: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/7804/? I also made sure to check if there were any remains by looking at my original ENB archive to see if any of those files were still in my Skyrim directory. Then I proceeded to extract only the d3d9.dll, enbhost.exe, and enblocal.ini of the newest ENB version, and made the ini tweaks in it as suggested by the guide. However, I don't know if the fact that I did this out of order (since it should be one of the first steps of the guide) has any influence in the results. I don't know about that, but I tried to launch the game with it activated aswell and had the same issue. I will do that, but only if I fail to find the problem in here. I would much rather prefer to understand what went wrong because it will be a great learning process to me. And I still have my old character to fall back when I'm willing to play the game :P. I'll try Greg's suggestions now, brb.

  4. My system specs: https://wiki.step-project.com/User:Henriquerpc/SystemSpecs First things first, I searched a lot on the wiki, on the forums, as well as on Google before creating this post. I tried out a few different things but couldn't find a way to stop the problem I'm having. Straight up, I would like to say that I'm relatively new to modding so forgive me if I mention some irrelevant stuff. The issue is that since I've finished STEP:Core and tried to start a new game, eventually I experience a CTD. So let's get down to the details to see if you can help me. I decided to follow the STEP:Core guide as closely as possible. But to be fair, there are only a few things I've not done exactly as recommended. So here is a list: After making a fresh install of the game and installing the essential utilities like SKSE, MO, LOOT and TES5Edit (following the first part of the guide), I played with my old character for a few weeks to wait for STEP: I installed, at best, a dozen mods, however nothing gamebreaking (ELFX, Claralux, SkyUI, MoreHUD, Imaginator and a few others). So when the guide was released I created a new profile in Mod Organizer to be as fresh as possible, and have only the mods and tweaks suggested by it. I haven't used the latest ENBoost version because I was planning to keep using the Cinemascope ENB, which is the only ENB I could manage to run on my computer. It uses the v1.0.8 (old I know, but as you'll see I've tested the newest ENBoost version as well later on). Here is the ENB Preset I was using https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/15425/? The other thing I haven't followed to the letter is that I didn't deselect the plugins you mentioned on the right pane to activate them in the "Archives Tab". Those parts seemed optional to me. I do have the option "Have MO manage archives" selected though. I just realised that the only bsa not ticked in the Archives pane is the STEP_Vanilla_Optimized_Textures_P.bsa (I don't remember changing this, but I tried to launch with it later on and had the same problems). All other options are selected and grayed out. I haven't created spreadsheets of my benchmarks. Everytime the guide recommended it, I would just do a "visual benchmark": open Fraps, start a new game, play for a few minutes to see the FPS and test out the combat in the Helgen Keep, jump, look around etc. Just to see if the game was playable, or if there were some noticeable issue or FPS drop. The only mod I skipped was the Brawl Bugs Patch because I plan to use the Enhanced Blood Textures. I'm kinda dumb and didn't knew that the changes you make in the INI settings through the Tools menu in MO were profile exclusive. Right before creating the bashed patch I doublechecked everything and found out that most INI tweaks were not like recommended by the guide. So I changed them and proceeded to finish STEP. Apart from the STEP:Core, I was using Enhanced Blood Textures, MoreHUD, The Dance of Death and Imaginator with Stakado's Cinemascope ENB. Apart from those things, everything else was done just like the guide. Throughout the whole process, every benchmark I made went fine, with an average of 30-34 FPS, which is good to me, considering my specs. And I always ran LOOT before those visual benchmarks (checking for masterlist updates and sorting the plugins). And then, right after the patches (https://wiki.step-project.com/STEP: came the moment to play the game for good. So I started a new game, carefully created a character to my liking and proceeded to the "execution" scene, and when Alduin landed on the tower and shouted, BAM! CTD. I relaunched the game, loaded the autosave that occurs right after character creation and the CTD happened again. I tried to pause and save, but a CTD happens everytime I try to save it. I tried a few more times and realized that I can quicksave and quickload. But if I open the menu and navigate for a while a CTD happens. And if I try to keep playing a CTD happen when Alduin shouts in the tower. Then I tried a few things: I tried to start a new game, no good, the same thing happens.I rebuilt the Bashed Patch. No good, the same issue.Since everything went fine until the last step, I decided to launch the game unticking some (or all) of the last mods (the bashed patch, the STEP Comp, DynDOLOD and the Better Shaped Weapons). No good. the same issue.I decided to remove my ENB with ENB FXAA SweetFX Manager (https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/7804/?) and install the latest version of ENB according to the STEP:Guide (without any ENB preset). No good, the same issue.I suspected that the INI Tweaks (which I only did by the end of the guide) might had something to do with it, so I reverted them to the original ones using MO (I copied from a backup). No good, the same issues.I found this post - https://forum.step-project.com/topic/6726-common-ctds-freezes-ils-and-memory-issues/ - and followed it's suggestions, but my memory blocks Log was normal. So I haven't added the argument suggested at the end.I deactivated the extra modes I mentioned above (Enhanced textures, imaginator etc.) and created a new bashed patch using exclusively the STEP:Core stuff. No good, the same issue. I lowered the ReservedMemorySizeMb from 512 to 256. No good, the same issue.I activated "STEP_Vanilla_Optimized_Textures_P.bsa" in the archives tab on the right pane. No good. (don't know if I need to rebuild the bashed patch after that though). I also checked my Nvidia Inspector settings, all the INI tweaks suggested, my drivers, my windows task manager to see if something was weird... I really don't know what is going on. Maybe my PC can't run with all those mods, but I find this weird since every single visual benchmark went perfect. And as I said, I would always start a new game, pass through that Alduin scene, all the way to the Helgen Keep to really test core aspects of the gameplay before proceeding with the guide. This issue only started after finishing that last part of the guide. Well, as I mentioned in some other post, I fell in love with the STEP project because it is the reason I decided to dive deep into learning every aspect I could about modding Skyrim. I really appreciate the effort this community puts out. Once again, sorry for the long text and forgive me if there is any misspelling, I'm not a native english speaker. Thanks in advance for the help. Cheers
  5. I had a similar problem. I already used an ENB and decided to create a new profile in MO to build the new STEP I was installing everything from the STEP:Core and making a "visual" benchmark after every chapter to make sure my performance was ok. Everything went fine, with a regular 32FPS (that was the limiter of my ENB) with a soft drop to 25/27 frames when Helgen appeared on the screen, but it always rose back to 32 after the carriage crossed the gates. I would also do some testing in combat in the Helgen Keep to make sure the game was running just fine and it always maintained a solid 32 FPS. Well, everything went fine until the section "2.N. Patches". After completing that, my frames dropped to 16 in the game Main Menu, as well as in the game itself (not in the loading screens). So after reading this post and DoubleYou's answer (thank you guys, btw), I decided to remove my ENB with ENB FXAA SweetFX Manager and Remover (link: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/7804/?) and maintain only the ENBoost files recommended by the guide (d3d9.dll, enbhost.exe, and enblocal.ini) with the tweaks it suggested. This solved my problem, game is running super smooth. So later I'll probably test out the ENB again without the FPS limiter to see if everything runs fine.
  6. It also occurs in the High Resolution detailed instructions page: https://wiki.step-project.com/High_Resolution_Texture_Pack#Recommendations It mentions the Unofficial Dawnguard mod. ;)
  7. Hey guys. I don't think this is the right section in the forums, but I couldn't see where else. I'm writing this to address something in the Wiki guide for that needs to be updated. In the detailed instructions for the DLC fixes, you still mention the old Unofficial patches. E.g.: https://wiki.step-project.com/Hearthfire#Recommendations In the first line you say that the Hearthfire DLC should be put right after the Unofficial Dawnguard in the left pane of MO. The same issue with the Dragonborn DLC detailed instructions: https://wiki.step-project.com/Dragonborn#Recommendations You might think of other detailed instructions that mention these patches, these are only the ones I stumbled upon. Cheers
  8. Wooow!! That's awesome! I was thinking about how great it would be to have a mod compilation for STEP. But after realizing the amount of work it would take to get authorization and put it together, I thought it would never happen. Kudos to you guys, STEP is incredible! Thank you for the hard work! Is this going to be a part of STEP
  9. Thanks! I'm loving the STEP project by the way. It really is getting me into modding, so I will definetly come back to change things up after the update.
  10. Hmm I see.. installing the older version of Cutting Room Floor (v1.1.7) would create any issues? If not, I would do it and proceed with the rest of the STEP guide. I've spent a while learning and implementing everything, that's why I would rather finish this soon, even if a new version of the guide is due to be released in the coming days. I want to come back to the game only after completing the STEP: Core! :P
  11. Just a quick thing. This mod requires The Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch as a Master. However, the STEP wiki recommends installing the Unofficial Patches for each version (skyrim, dawnguard, hearthfire, dragonborn) separately. Since I'm new to modding, I decided to follow STEP carefully, but realized this issue when trying to create the Bashed Patch. I believe I must remove the unofficial patches I mentioned (leaving only the Unofficial HiRes Texture) and install the Legendary Edition instead. And then put it right under the last DLC in the priority order. Am I right? If this is correct, it would be nice to change that initial part of the STEP Guide, so that other less experienced users like me don't run into this problem.
  12. Hey, there is a new update around, It's the 1.89 version. Just a heads up to update the instructions ;)
  13. Hello everyone. I've noticed that the Update 3.3.2 was removed from Nexus Mod Website. The changelog was updated in 19/11/2015 and it informed that it was removed because was having issues. Here is the link: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/40564/? Since this is my first time using the STEP build, should I install the Skyfalls + Skymills 3.3.1 normally and carry on? Because the wiki suggests the 3.3.2 update. I'm new to the forums so excuse me if this is not the right place to talk about this. Cheers
