[SSEedit Script] How to skip over record that I'm not interested?



I want to reduce script execution time. Is there any way to skip over records that I'm not interested? 



I want to create SSEedit Script to check old form version(43). I modified "ApplyCustomScriptedFilter.pas" file.

The script is working as intended but it takes a long time to run through all records from ESP files. 


Here is the script.(only modified part)

function Filter(e: IInterface): Boolean;
  if (Signature(e) <> 'TES4') or (GetFormVersion(e) <> '43') then 
  Result := 1;

Just in case someone want to see it. Here is the original ApplyCustomScriptedFilter.pas file.(in spoiler) 




  Apply custom scripted filter for female NPC characters
unit ApplyCustomScriptedFilter;

function Filter(e: IInterface): Boolean;
  if Signature(e) <> 'NPC_' then
  // Female flag
  Result := GetElementNativeValues(e, 'ACBS\Flags') and 1 > 0;

function Initialize: Integer;
  FilterConflictAll := False;
  FilterConflictThis := False;
  FilterByInjectStatus := False;
  FilterInjectStatus := False;
  FilterByNotReachableStatus := False;
  FilterNotReachableStatus := False;
  FilterByReferencesInjectedStatus := False;
  FilterReferencesInjectedStatus := False;
  FilterByEditorID := False;
  FilterEditorID := '';
  FilterByName := False;
  FilterName := '';
  FilterByBaseEditorID := False;
  FilterBaseEditorID := '';
  FilterByBaseName := False;
  FilterBaseName := '';
  FilterScaledActors := False;
  FilterByPersistent := False;
  FilterPersistent := False;
  FilterUnnecessaryPersistent := False;
  FilterMasterIsTemporary := False;
  FilterIsMaster := False;
  FilterPersistentPosChanged := False;
  FilterDeleted := False;
  FilterByVWD := False;
  FilterVWD := False;
  FilterByHasVWDMesh := False;
  FilterHasVWDMesh := False;
  FilterBySignature := False;
  FilterSignatures := '';
  FilterByBaseSignature := False;
  FilterBaseSignatures := '';
  FlattenBlocks := False;
  FlattenCellChilds := False;
  AssignPersWrldChild := False;
  InheritConflictByParent := True; // color conflicts
  FilterScripted := True; // use custom Filter() function


  Result := 1;





I found the information about Group from Tes5Mod:Mod File Format but I don't know how to use it. I can't find any example or tutorial about it.



GRUPs are collections of records, and are used to improve scanning of files to make it easier to skip over records that the reading program is not interested in.

In addition to this, subgroups for WRLD and CELLS provide some useful structural information (e.g., the division of cell data into persistent and non-persistent references.)

Filter is not the best approach here since you want to check only TES4 header of each plugin

  Check form version of TES4 header in loaded plugins
unit UserScript;

  CheckFormVersion = 44;

function Initialize: integer;
  i: integer;
  plugin: IInterface;
  for i := 0 to Pred(FileCount) do begin
    plugin := FileByIndex(i);
    if GetFormVersion(ElementByIndex(plugin, 0)) < CheckFormVersion then
      if Pos('.Hardcoded.', GetFileName(plugin)) = 0 then
        AddMessage('Old version plugin: ' + GetFileName(plugin));
  Result := 1;

Wow. Thank you so much, zilav.

I should ask here before start reading basic pascal tutorial, old script file and end up making nothing work.

(But I don't regret it because at least I tried ::D: )


Can I upload this script on Nexusmods?

I think it might useful for other people. I will give all credit to you.

      As it was stated in the title, it seems DynDOLOD is not applying modded statue of Azura (Sexy Statues Skyrim v2 NSFW Warning) when generating LODs. When I launch the game, vanilla Azura appears instead of the modded variant. The modded statue of Azura will only appear once I get close enough to it. Also, I installed a mod which resize the statue 2x its normal to make it visible all across Skyrim (Elizabeths Tower - Azura Shrine SSE).
      I have checked SSEEdit to see what defines the conflict and it turns out DynDOLOD.esp set the statue as persistent only and removed "is full lod" definition which was there in Elizabeth's Tower. I have very little idea of what those terms mean but my gut tells me that it has something to do with the trouble I am facing currently. Hence, is there a method to overcome this matter? 
      Thank you very much in advance.

      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: 
      Which was provided from here: 
      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?

      First, sorry for my English.
      I want to merge some ESP's without renumbering FormID's. Is there any way to (semi)automatically determine, if these given ESP's have crossing FormID's? I had looked into TES5Edit scripts directory but hadn't found anything apropiate.
      Or maybe there is a script, which just list all FormID's from given ESP?
