  1. Hi, I'm back after some years trying out the new guide (Skyrim Special Edition 1.0.0). I'm following it very closely and came across a part that I found a bit confusing. I bring up two main issues in this post that I would kindly like some help with: 1. Confusing guide steps 2. Missing backup of Update.esm These are the problematic/confusing guide steps. Please note that it's not necessarily the steps themselves that are confusing (except the last sentence in STEP 3 point 3), but rather the purpose/thought behind. ------------------------------ STEP 2 Profile Setup "10. Now click the MO List Options button and select [Create empty mod]." "11. Name it xEdit Output." Tool Setup table (Arguments) (Applies to both TES5Edit.exe and TES5EditQuickAutoClean.exe) "Tick the Create files in mod instead of overwrite box and select the xEdit Output mod from the drop-down." STEP 3 Cleaning Vanilla Master Files Standard Cleaning Procedures "3. Once xEdit is finished, click [X] at upper right to close. A backup of the original plugin will automatically be saved into (e.g., ../xEdit Output/SSEEdit Backups) inside of Overwrite at the bottom of the MO mod list (left) pane." ------------------------------ First of all, isn't the point of creating the "xEdit Output" mod to make the backups appear there instead of in Overwrite (apologies if I misunderstand this)? That's why the last sentence in STEP 3 point 3 was a little confusing. If we remove the parenthesis it says "A backup of the original plugin will automatically be saved into inside of Overwrite at the bottom of the MO mod list (left) pane." Could you re-formulate that whole sentence including the parenthesis to make it clearer you think? Because I don't understand what the "xEdit Output" is for or where the backups end up. Now for the missing esm: After I had cleaned the first file (Update.esm) with TES5EditQuickAutoClean.exe and closed the tool I couldn't find a backup file in any of the folders (neither xEdit Output nor Overwrite). I proceeded to clean the other files (Dawnguard.esm, Hearthfire.esm, Dragonborn.esm). After doing so those three appeared in....probably the Overwrite mod folder. Sorry, I can't remember precisely but I think it was the Overwrite folder. It most likely was, because otherwise I wouldn't be here wondering what the purpose of the xEdit Output folder is. But anyway, as I said the Update.esm was nowhere to be found. Which means I had no backup of the original file. So here's what I did then: I went into Steam and did a "verify integrity" check. The Update.esm was then retrieved, I made a backup of it and then cleaned it again. When doing so I got an error (I really need to write down these error messages) saying that some registry edits had disappeared and that I had to run the Skyrim launcher again. I did so and then I went back and did the whole BethINI thing again just in case some ini-files had been overwritten. So is that sufficient? Can I continue from STEP 4 or do I need to go back (further up) in the guide and redo some steps? Jeeez, Whitestar, that sure was a lot of text that you made me read Ok, here is a short summary: 1. I found the parts about "xEdit Output" a bit confusing, including the arguments given in the tool setup table. Why exactly do we create that mod (folder), especially when it says further down that the plugin backups can be found inside Overwrite (and I believe that's where I found them). 2. The Update.esm wasn't backed up. 3. Having done the "verify integrity" thing and then re-done the BethINI steps, am I good to continue, or should I rewind further and redo more steps (please say no )? Thanks, and apologies if I have misunderstood something. MO2 isn't exactly the most intuitive tool I have ever used. Also apologies if anything (or all) in my post is unclear. It's always a bit hard to clearly and precisely describe issues when the problems are a bit vague. EDIT: Just a thought: It's only after the manual cleaning of Dawnguard.esm using TES5Edit.exe (not TES5EditQuickAutoClean.exe) that I tick Backup Plugins. In TES5EditQuickAutoClean.exe I was told to just exit the tool. Could it be that the Backup option is not enabled in TES5EditQuickAutoClean.exe, and that that's the reason Update.esm wasn't backed up? And when I tick that option in TES5Edit.exe it also somehow gets activated in TES5EditQuickAutoClean.exe, resulting in backups taken of Hearthfire and Dragonborn? This is just pure speculaition and I don't really know what I'm talking about.
  2. I have been playing Fallout 4 for 1600 hours on one game, going well, but while updating some files I noticed that MO2 had every mod I have ever installed listed as a Profile. I decided to clean up the mess, though I have no idea how it happened. Then I noticed that the number of active mods had gone down. I started the game, and sure enough, all of the mods listed as Profiles had disappeared. How in the world did this happen. I though profiles were a seperate catagory. I was trying to clean up the extranious never used profiles before installing one to play Frost. Or should I reinstall Fallout 4 in another directory, along with MO 2, and start that one over. Still, I need to know what I can do to clean profiles without deleting the mods from the profile I'm playing.
  3. Hey there, after my latest debacle with NMM and Skyrim, I recently switched to Mod Organizer. I love it so far. Only issues I have is, that the SkyrimPrefs.ini and Skyrim.ini apparently don't get recognized(?) by the ini Editor when creating new profiles. They're in the folder alright, they just won't show up in the editor. Then, I've got trouble with frequent crashing. Whenever I use a program through MO and then close it, the MO gets kind of...buggy, I guess? Buggy in that it crashes instantly the next time I try to boot anything through it. I've tried starting in Admin mode, I've even relocated all my Steam/MO stuff from Program Files (x86) to Program Files, to no avail. It just keeps on crashing and it's driving me nuts. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch in advance!
  4. I created two new profiles under MO ... one is new, and the other is copy of an existing. MO does not list my new profiles in the dropdown menu, even after MO restart. Am I forgetting something, or could this be a bug?
  5. I downloaded MO the other day to learn my way around the program for Skyrim (I first downloaded v1.2.15, but just a few hours ago I downloaded v1.2.16 and the issue is still there). I've already modded with NMM many times in the past so while I may not know much, I'm not completely unfamiliar with modding. I've followed all of Gopher's tutorials and the tutorials that come with MO and everything has went well so far. I even installed a few different mods to see if they were working and they were! But then I got to Profiles. I had heard that go to the Profiles section where you manage them, you need to have the box called "Automatic Archive Invalidation" enabled. I see both that box and the "Local Saves" box, but I can't tick archive invalidation since it's always grayed out (I can however tick Local Saves for what it's worth). Creating a new profile lets me tick that box ONLY if I select "Default Game Settings" when creating it. Nothing else will let me. Let me add that I've tried this with mods enabled, no mods enabled, on a fresh install of Skyrim, with existing saves, with no existing saves, etc. I even uninstalled MO, deleted all traces of it, and reinstalled and still have the same problem. I figured maybe this was intentional in some way? In the Workarounds section, the Backdate BSAs button says that it can be used instead of AI but does that mean I need to press it before I've installed mods, after I've installed them, after I've created a new profile, only one time, or what? I apologize if this is a stupid question, but I can't find anywhere that says anything about this. Here are my system specs even though I don't think they're necessary in this context: https://wiki.step-project.com/User:Garybenoak/SystemSpecs
