  1. Mod Source: BethINI by DoubleYou Wiki Link BethINI STEP Wiki Link BethINI (pronounced "Bethany") is an attempt to restore decency to the INI configuration files for games created by Bethesda. It currently supports Oblivion, Skyrim, Skyrim Special Edition, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, and Fallout 4. It arose out of my research into the Skyrim INI files over on STEP. Why You Need This There are many advantages to using BethINI: 1. It automatically reorders your INI files into a sensible order, making them much easier to navigate for manual tweaking. 2. It automatically fixes common errors, including some that can cause CTDs. 3. It automatically detects mods you have installed and makes changes recommended by the mod authors where deemed appropriate. If your mod or a mod you know of requires such support, please contact me, as this is the easiest thing in the world to implement. 4. It's presets are superior in graphical fidelity and performance (95% of the time) to the official presets one can create via the game launcher. 5. It allows for the modification of more settings than is accessible via native game settings, and provides explanation for each setting and what it does. 6. It automatically backs up your INI files. 7. For Skyrim, it automatically configures the Creation Kit to support multiple masters and any installed DLC, if enabled. TL;DR BethINI fixes your INI files and lets you tweak your INI files to improve performance and quality. Installation: BethINI is a portable application. You can run it anywhere. Simply extract and run. Do NOT run through Mod Organizer! Recommended usage: 1. Please do not delete your INI files prior to running this! 2. Run BethINI 3. Mod Organizer users should go to the Setup tab and select the profile they wish to use via the ''INI Path'' setting. Your profiles should be autodetected. It is highly recommended to close Mod Organizer if open. 4. Click Default. This will refresh your INI files to the default state. 5. Original Skyrim ENB users should tick the ''ENB Mode'' checkbox. This does not apply to users who ONLY use the ENBoost portion of ENB. This should be autodetected, so if you are unsure, leave this alone! 6. Click your desired preset. 7. Tick the ''Recommended Tweaks'' checkbox to apply tweaks recommended for all users. 8. Click the Save and Exit button. Testimonials FAQ Q: The program will not load. The cursor spins, but the program does not load and the process is not created. A: Add BethINI.exe to your antivirus exclusion list. Q: Virus! A: False positive. See the VirusTotal report. Q: Should I delete my INI files before running this? A: No! Indeed, it is likely the game launcher shall kill your INI files if you do this! Q: Why is my savegame crashing? A: Not all INI settings can be changed mid-game (e.g., uGridsToLoad). If you used some bad INI tweaks (e.g., Ewi's INIs) on a save, they can cause your save not to work with good INIs. Either copy some of the problematic lines back into your INI, stick the old INIs back, or start a new game. Q: Does it work with ENB? A: Yes! Skyrim users can simply tick the ENB Mode checkbox (should be autodetected) to ensure that all necessary tweaks are applied. ENB users of other games may need to check to make sure that they haven't accidentally disabled any necessary settings (as I currently don't know what settings are necessary for the other games, as I haven't used them. Sorry.) Q: If I use ONLY the ENBoost part of ENB, do I need to tick the ENB Mode checkbox? A: No. Again, this should be autodetected. Q: I get an error when I start the game that says, "failed to initialize renderer." A: Your screen resolution is incorrect. Please change your resolution to one that your monitor supports. Custom resolutions can be manually typed into the Resolution box. Q: I want to go back to the way my INIs were before I used BethINI. Is that possible? A: Simply go to the setup tab and select "Before BethINI" in the "Restore Backup" dropdown.
  2. every time i try to run wyre bash i get an error message saying Error loading python DLL says im missing python39.dll how do i fix
  3. Hoy folks! I'm looking into doing some Oblivion streams in the future, and was looking into mods. Wanted to know if there is anywhere some modern\updated guides, and what manager, those whom do oblivion modding use nowadays? MO1? MO2? Vortex? I know it's an old game, but searching the only guides i found were from from 7\6 yrs ago! So, anyone could give some help on this front?
  4. Title pretty much sums it up. I accidentally closed the MO2 application while running Oblivion. I hastily closed Oblivion once I realized what I had done, but after running Oblivion Launcher through MO2 again and starting the game up it crashes shortly after the Bethesda logo begins to appear. Still very new to modding and not entirely sure what is causing the crash but am aware that Mod Organizer must be open for the virtual file system to work properly. I do have my game stored in Program Files and understand it is advised not to be there, but the guide I followed in modding mentioned this should not be a problem and I personally did not experience any errors before mistakenly closing it today. TY in advance.
  5. I've posted in another forum about my struggles to resolve micro-stutter, but I'm not exactly sure that's what I have. When I move a high-DPI mouse very slowly, and in very small increments horizontally, it's almost like I can see the refresh flashing, bright to dark, bright to dark. It is pretty much imperceptible with long, natural movements of the mouse in normal gameplay UNLESS you have HDR turned on. Then, it's blatantly obvious and intolerable. I do notice I get headaches and more fatigue in general than I would expect, even with HDR off. I have tried many things to resolve this, including but not limiied to: installing OSR, installing Oblivion Display Tweaks, various combinations of settings within those two, messing with BethINI, creating custom resolutions with various timings, updating my drivers, limited frame rate, disabling vsync, disabling freesync and going back to vanilla. Maybe it's not micro-stutter after all, and this is something else?
  6. Hello there, First, just a quick note: forum link in the readme doesn't work, appears to direct to a non-existent page. Ok, now the questions: the ultra preset auto-selects vsync, is this intended? Second, the "recommended tweaks" button doesn't stay checked if you relaunch. I'm assuming this is not a problem, maybe that check box is a one-time thing, but it never hurts to check! I see other settings like actor fade are persistent, so I'm thinking everything is ok.
  7. Hello all, I hope it's ok for a newbie to post here. It was the most relevant search result, so here I am. I am following the guide at https://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/49898?tab=description and finding that the guide is anything but basic. Enough with the humorous asides. After installing OSR, I installed Bev's INI tweaks which modifies the former. However, I failed to delete the folders that weren't related to OSR before installing. I therefore uninstalled Bev's in Wyre Bash, deleted the extraneous folders, and reinstalled. I got a popup which, intending to read, I somehow dismissed accidentally. Looking through my Oblivion folder structure, it looks like it was just a backup of the ini settings I removed, hopefully. Then I reinstalled Bevs in Wrye Bash. At that point, OSR turned yellow. According to the Wrye Bash general readme, this means there is an underride. OK, that makes sense..must be as a result of my messing about. I'll anneal OSR. Still yellow. Refreshed all the data, just in case...still yellow. This concerns me, as I'm discovering that a single misstep when you're not knowledgeable can lead to much suffering. What did I do wrong, and how might it be fixed?
  8. Hi, So I'm trying to get back into Oblivion, and I'm using MO2 to manage my mods this time around. I've installed manual mods just fine and they work, however when some mods are giving me this error the error of "The content of <data> does not look valid. If I click okay, it gives me, "This mod was not probably set up correctly, most likely it WILL not work. You should first correct the directory layout using the content-tree." Is there something I need to tick in the settings to fix, or is this the fault of the mod? When I was using NMM for Oblivion, it worked with no issues. I should also note that HGEC was installed earlier with the installer working as normal.
  9. Good day. Today I finally installed MO for Oblivion, but encountered a problem with *.dll plugins not loaded by MO. All the rest of the mods are loaded fine, except OBSE plugins. I have latest non-steam version of the game (GOTY), latest OBSE ( and MO (1.3.8), tried to switch Load Mechanism to Script Extender, but nothing helps. I was forced to move Plugins folder directly to Oblivion Data folder to make it work. It is not a neat solution in this case. Although, MO shows all the plugins properly (in the right panel).
  10. I use MO2 and have some texture and mesh mods installed, some mods that require OBSE and archive invalidation invalidated. Since you can't launch Steam Oblivion via obseloader.exe, I put all OBSE files into the Oblivion folder and tried the fix about going to workarounds, selecting script extender as 'load mechanism' and select Steam.exe as 'binary' with -applaunch 22330 in the 'arguments' field and launching Oblivion that way. When I start through that launcher, OBSE works...but all my other mods do not get loaded into the game. If I start Oblivion through MO2 with Oblivion.exe or OblivionLauncher.exe then my texture and meshes mods work but OBSE does not. I also have WyreBash added to my Mod Organizer and when I start Oblivion though WyreBash, OBSE isn't working as well but my non-OBSE-dependent mods do work. I simply can't get my mods and OBSE to work at the same time. Does anyone know a fix?
  11. Welcome to the Morroblivion Overhaul STEP forum! There is also The Morroblivion Help Desk hosted by ponyrider0 for users who seek live assistance. The Morroblivion Overhaul modding guide is created to help first-time modders make their modding experience as successful as possible. Morroblivion may not appeal to the average gamer. Modding Oblivion alone can be problematic in and of itself. The guide will attempt to teach users the basics of modding and resolving mod conflicts. It is a [WIP]. As my friend ponyrider0 says, 'If you can find enjoyment in unskilled fan-fiction and fan-artwork, then Morroblivion might be for you. Morroblivion is an unpolished, inefficient, precarious fan-fic quality mod that is no longer being maintained by a development team. Users should not expect to experience the best performance or FPS when playing Morroblivion, even in its vanilla state. Yet, there is still a tremendous amount of love and hard-work poured into this project by its fans. Nevertheless, if you are looking for something that rises above your average unskilled, fan-made effort, you should probably wait for Skywind or another similar project.'
  12. Use this Topic to post generic Oblivion questions when following any of the Oblivion guides. Be sure to check the FAQs. I will be updating it as questions are asked. I'll try to populate my Troubleshooting section on my FAQs page with common problems with Oblivion and Wrye Bash.
  13. MO2 Oblivion version doesn't have Script Extension options. MO2 ask me to do elevation,When I open Oblivion Launcher. After I done,I can open the game ,but it CTD Immediately. or I should go back to 1.3.11
  14. Hello (again). I seem to have done something wrong while building and rebuilding bashed patches through MO, but, for some reason, I currently have an 'Unmanaged: Bashed Patch, 0' "mod" at the very top of the left pane which is categorised as Non-MO. I also have the regular bashed patch at the bottom of the left-pane list and all else, as far as I can tell, "as should be", but I don't think the first one should be there? Also, one of my companion mods, which I have used a hair mod for (the hair mod is one of those merged in the bashed patch), now has a double hair - could it be caused by this? In case it matters, the Overwrite is empty. As usually, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  15. Fallout Stutter Remover has been a great help reducing problems with the Fallout 3 game engine (and Fallout NV and Oblivion) but several users have recently reported problems with some of the recommended settings for the associated INI file. iDefaultMode = 3 (under Critical Sections) Audley mentioned recently when using the new Fall Creators Update for Win 10 that setting this parameter to any value other than 1 caused constant crashes GeneralJohn reported recently in a Fallout 3 Nexus FSR post that setting this parameter with the Fall Creator's Update to any value other than 1 caused freezes bHookLightCriticalSections = 1 (under Master) Gopher's suggestion is to set this to 0 Audley previously mentioned in the STEP guide form that setting this to 0 caused a drastic reduction in FPS on his system bReplaceHeap = 0 (under Master) NVSR creator's recommendation is to use 1, but it's a tradeoff between performance and stability fMaximumFPS = 0 (Under FPS_Management) In the Fallout 3 FSR Nexus page Loveblanket mentioned the possibility of setting this to 30 to reduce FPS and allow using higher resolution textures on his system (I'm not sure whether other users will find this useful). iHeapSize = 250 (under Heap) In the Fallout 3 FSR Nexus page Loveblanket mentioned the possibility of setting this to a larger value (between 250 and 450) to accommodate the increased memory provided by the LAA fix. This assumes, of course, that the heap is enabled. The FO3 guide will be updated for at least the iDefaultMode comments. It would help if other users test this and other FSR parameters mentioned that seem useful to change.
  16. Hi there. This is a new issue for me, as I've been using MO with Oblivion for quite a while. I'm trying to re-install HGEC and Robert's Male Body (for porn reasons, of course) and despite installing normally through MO, going through the installer and selecting my options (in the case of HGEC), my character's remain clothed and with their vanilla bodies. At first I thought this was an isolated issue, but I'm running morroblivion and every mod I try to download for it fails to show up in my game. So far I've tried a clothing replacer mod, and a mod that replaces the morrowind enemies with updated replacements. I'm not doing anything differently now than I used to, and MO works fine with Skyrim. Does anyone know what's going on?
  17. Hello fellow gamers, In waiting for the new LOTD mod to be released I decided to take a look at Oblivion mods. There is a lot of me stuff out there so I decided to completely blow out my Oblivion install. In doing so I am basically writing myself a tutorial so I know what I did. This tutorial can be easily adapted as another STEP Pack on this site. How many of you would like to see a current tutorial for a fully blown out Oblivion? If there is enough interest I will put one together. Also, if anyone wants to help let me know. :) I know Oblivion is old but I think it is still worth playing and some of the new mods look like they will improve immersion quite a bit so hey, let's play Oblivion. I am thinking the name will be LOVE:GOTY Love Oblivion's Visual Enhancement : GOTY Or something like this.
  18. Last time I tried to clean mods with Tes4edit for Oblivion I got CTD and had to Verify the integrity of the cache after deleting the edited DLCs. I followed the guide here: https://wiki.step-project.com/TES5Edit/TES5Edit_Cleaning_Instructions Which was provided from here: https://wiki.step-project.com/User:Hishutup/OblivionGuide#TES4Edit However, the latter does not use MO at all and might just have been used as a referral. Something makes me think there is some problem with Tes4edit and MO, but I just wanted to check here before I got a headache through multiple attempts. Have people here made it work just fine, how did you do it?
  19. I've followed a STEP program here for Oblivion: https://wiki.step-project.com/User:Astien/Oblivion to just about the letter. I decided to go off and get an ENB on my own, and I installed the wrapper version of it following these instructions: https://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/44146/? The game loads correctly, there is the notification telling me the ENB is working and that the overlay is on, but when I load a game or even start a new one all I get is a black screen. I can open menus, move, hit things, hear sounds, but no visuals are working. The only 3D model I can see in game is the one in the inventory screen. I think I have installed everything correctly, I turned off Antialiasing like it said and turned on HDR, but it is still not working. If I could have some help with this issue, I would much appreciate it! PC Specs: CPU - I7-4790k 4 GHz GPU - AMD R9 290x 4GB Motherboard - Fatal1ty ASRock gaming motherboard RAM - 16 GB 2400
  20. Hello, this is my first post. Currently trying to play Nehrim. When I`ve created my character and exited the creation screen everything is fine. I can play the game without any problems. But when I load a save my character has a second headless torso behind the main torso.The second torso´s arms are stretched tightly backwards. I first thought that maybe the problem was Invalidation, but now I don`t know. The main mods I use are Oblivion Reloaded, the revamp (ORN) and OBSE. The other mods I use are a couple of hair mods needed for ORN, Blockhead, Fast Exit 2, Meshes and Normal Maps Beta, Custom Autosave, Nehrim HighRes Palm Tree Retexture and Phinix Immersive DarkUI. I maintain my own load order since I use so few mods. I use the GOG version of Oblivion. I did try to solve this problem by reinstalling everything. Unfortunately that was a waste of time. I have found out that: 1. Running the game with OBSE in MO with all mods give this glitch. 2. Running the game with OBSE IN MO and no mods gives this glitch. 3. Running the game with Oblivion.exe in MO does not produce the effect. 4. Running the game with it`s launcher and OBSE does not give the effect.. 5. Running the game with Oblivion.exe outside MO does not give the effect. I hope this is enough info for you to be able to help This topic was first posted over at SureAI (the mod`s devs) but they don`t know MO.
  21. Mythic Dawn: Gateway to Oblivion WIP Hey, I need people to kind of help me with the guide since its getting to that point where, its really large and if I disappear then the guide will to. If you want to be like a co-editor then send me a pm. I don't have anyone else that can keep track of mod updates and editing of the guide. Sooo, if anyone is interested then shoot me a pm. This first post will update from time to time. Probably every week, maybe. If you wanna chat with me and other group members go over to Unofficial Chatrooom And by I have. I mean Soire(Red) has helped and merged her guide but has been absent for quite some time because of personal reasons. I hope she is okay. I have not heard from her in ~2 months now, I am assuming she is gone for the time being First off, take a quick glance (yes, its long and a little strange). There are going to be typos There are going to be issues related to mods conflicting. There are going to be issues with Wrye Bash There are going to be issues with the lack of Conflict Resolution for the time being. I took a look not to long ago and saw that CBash does a pretty good job Mods were abandoned. Most mods work just fine but the ones that don't will NEED to be weeded out. In short there are going to be issues. I cannot find all of them myself. That is not going to be a thing. Then come share what you think. Im kinda open to anything. I have kinda of imitated the S.T.E.P. style of things but compressed it into one guide. As I go through the mods, I do a quick assement from the documentation and then put a color with it. If you disagree, make mention of it. I am not really limited to what type of mods but I am on the content. If I dislike it. I am not going to add it. There is going to be a section for player homes, companions and some other things but that is latter and is not going to be something I am going to use but it will be included. I'll be updating the intro info on the guide page eventually. If you see something that doesn't look correct, share it or fix it. Either PM me, make a post or fix it yourself. You can even use the Unofficial Chat I use the top of the page for a more up to date update article. I am wanting a few things before more/less 'Alpha'. A different title, Mythic Dawn is better than the original but can be confusing Here are some suggested ones What do YOU want YOUR Oblivion to be like? This is open ended on purpose. Do you want a fast pace game with pretty good combat filled with story and adventure. So, mostly Extended with some optional mods Tell me what you think Color choices I am by no means creative. So, help me out. I mean look at this post... Terrible color choices have been made I'll appreciate any help/suggestion/criticism/etc. Updated: Nov 16, 2014
  22. As I was working on Mythic Dawn: Gateway to Oblivion WIP I had seen many mods that are compatible with Nehrim. I would consider Nehrim to be one of the best full conversions for a game. Soire had started a guide over here but I have not seen her active in the past month. So, I figure that I am going to start thinking about writing a guide because I am familiar with the Oblivion engine and know a thing or two. If you can, make a mod suggestion over on this sub forum and then make a post here that provides the link and the topic title. At this point in time don't worry about messing up the topic over there. I will be able to fix. This isn't going to be something that is going to happen immediately. Well, if I get enough feedback I may be able to get a good skeleton going. Currently, what I think I want the guide to be Core/Extended frameworkKeep the mod format from Mythic DawnChange the Colors but keep more of the .css from Mythic DawnMore... TBA...If people can actively post here and help get a list of mods going then this change be done pretty quick. It's all up to you... On a side note... I know I have been making a ton of topics all around but its because of this topic posted by Z and because he pm'd me asking me to... so... I figured if I am going to start doing these mod suggestion things then I might as well have a complete section. Trying to keep everything linked together is kinda tricky
  23. I recently purchased a monitor with Gsync and 144hz and was wondering if Oblivion has the same problem as Skyrim when the framerate goes over 60 fps. Does anyone know?
  24. TesModManager - OblivionModManager for Skyrim and Skyrim SE - Oblivion - Morrowind by monpetitbeurre, a new version of OBMM Extended, is not recognizing my Oblivion installation (even when installing it directly into the Oblivion directory). While I check off all other mods that it can be installed for, it will only insert itself in Skyrim Special Edition as a new obmm folder. I do not want it in my Skyrim Special Edition game, and even though I uncheck this game in the installation setup, it is still installing itself into the game directory. I also do not wish to uninstall the other games I have already installed just to prevent this utility from inserting itself into their directories. Would someone be willing to help me figure out how to force it to install only for the game I wish to use it for, specifically Oblivion? I have also invited the author to participate in this topic, so hopefully we can figure out the best solution for all the games that it supports.
  25. Hello, A few days ago I made some changes to a follower mod using the Construction Set (basically, change from essential to non-essential, so literally simply unchecking one box), however, now, while the game still seems to start and run, as far as I can tell, normally, I get two error messages in MO, namely: 1. There are files in the overwrite mod - what I find there is a file Modname.esp and a folder named Backup with a DEFAULT.bak file in it; 2. Ini Tweaks overwritten, with a Fix button - there are some explanations about a profile_tweaks.ini file and a recommendation to delete it, but I am not sure if the changes made are thus preserved or not. Could anyone suggest what the best way to approach this would be? As far as I can tell, it is not game-breaking, but I would still like to have it cleared up, if only just in case. Thanks.
