Cleaned Update ESM includes Update, Dawnguard, Hearthfires, and Dragonborn.esm how do I separate the esms from this mod?

Question

​Hello I made a big mistake on not backing up my esms during cleaning and I used "verify integrity of game files" to gain the esms back. After this I followed the first case in using the â€‹Overwrite​ in Mod Organizer and deleted the TES5Edit backups but instead of having Cleaned Update ESM, Cleaned Dawnguard ESM, etc. I only have the Cleaned Update ESM that I've dragged to the top. This overwrite contains all the mentioned esms because I cleaned all the esms beforehand and didn't use the overwrite procedure until afterwards. Please tell me how I can amend this. If there is something I've not been clear on or if you'd like more details please ask away. Thank You.

Open the 'mods' folder in Explorer and create 3 new folders for the other DLC, ie. : Cleaned Dawnguard, Cleaned Hearthfires & Cleaned Dragonborn.

Now open the existing Cleaned Update mod and drag/drop each ESM into its own folder.

This will mean there are now 4 "Cleaned" versions in separate folders (mods in MO's left pane) which you can order and activate as per normal.

Thank you for the quick feedback. The Cleaned Update folder also includes a meta.ini document. Should I leave this as is?

Yeah, MO should create new ones when you start it again with the new mods folders. It's an internal file that MO uses to describe what that mod contains.

You can do 2 things:

  1. manually create the new meta.ini files by using the existing one as a template
  2. don't worry about them

Your game won't break by doing either.

Wouldn't it be easier to just do the cleaning without MO active? The stock ESM files sit in your install folder, the cleaned ESM files go in your install folder, MO doesn't touch them anyway, so you don't have to fuss around with making "Cleaned X" fake mods or any of the other stuff at https://wiki.step-project.com/STEP:Guide#2.B._Clean_the_Update_ESM, you just clean them, make sure they are in the proper place, and get on with the stuff MO actually has a clue what to do with, no need for meta files or any other hand waving. The process at that link is a lot of trouble for nothing.

The steps I suggested here are for this specific case only, most users will never see the same issue as the OP's case.

      Hi guys I'm new here so hopefully this is the right place to post this.
       
      When I try launching Skyrim SE through Mod Organizer 2 I get the error "REL/Relocation.h(567): failed to open file"
       
      Before this error I was getting the error "REL/Relocation.h(548): failed to open file" but I uninstalled and reinstalled the engine fixes and SKSE libraries. After doing that and relaunching I get the error I mentioned above. Do you guys know what I could have done wrong? I'm really new to messing with mods so it's probably something I did wrong... I've made sure all plugins are enabled and all mods are installed with their masters except for the ones below because I can't find the appropriate mod that goes with it so maybe that could also be the issue. I'm pretty sure I have "Blues Skyrim" but the creator renamed it so that's why MO2 is detecting it as missing. Idk if that's the case with the other ones though.
       
      Missing masters:

      Master                                                                               Required By
       
      Blues Skyrim.esp                                                              Eli_Breezehome [PATCH - DOS (Director's Cut) SE VER1.4] (STD).esp
       
      Skyrim Better Roads - All In One - Merged.esp                Settlements Expanded SE - Skyrim Better Roads Patch.esp, Skyrim Better Roads - All In - One - Merged - PATCHED.esp
       
      Soljund's Sinkhole.esp                                                      Settlements Expanded SE - Soljunds Sinkhole Patch.esp
       
      Tes Arena - Skyrim Frontier Fortress.esp                         Settlements Expanded SE - Legendary Cities Patch - AIO.esp
       
      Whistling Mine.esp                                                           Settlements Expanded SE - Whistling Mine Patch.esp
       
       
       
      also another problem is when I run LOOT it gives me the error 
       
      Loot failed to run
      Errors:
      Cyclic interaction detected: ELE_SSE.esp --[Master]-> SoS_ELE_Patch.esp --[Group]-> Luminosity Lighting Overhaul.esp --[Master]-> SoS_Luminocity_Patch.esp --[Group]-> ELE_SSE.esp
       
       
       
      If anyone knows what I could do to fix this, that would be amazing. Thank you

      Hi there peoples,

      First time posting, so if this isn't allowed please just let me know. Looking for a bit of support, as been scratching my head for ages now and getting nowhere.

      I have used MO2 + xEdit in the past and never had any issues with it. However, decided to mod Fallout NV again. When trying to run FNVEdit through MO2, it doesn't seem to complete the action as LOOT tells me after cleaning that it still needs cleaned. I have made sure the installation directory for MO2 isn't in the Fallout folder. It's all on my C drive (SSD). Tried running as admin ect. Clearing read only. Just can't seem to get it working.

      Any advice or help is appreciated.

      Thanks

      Since the release of Anniversary Edition, I renamed my Skyrim SE installation folder from 'Skyrim Special Edition' to 'Skyrim Special Edition Classic' before updating the game on Steam.  So now I have both folders in Steam\steamapps\common.
      I have setup MO2 to have two different instances of Skyrim SE (one being Anniversary Edition and the other being just before Anniversary Edition).  I'm using the same Base Folder (F:/Tools/MO2Base/Skyrim) for both instances so I don't have duplicate mods using up disk space.  However, I did create unique subfolders for 'Profiles' and 'Overwrite' (e.g. %BASE_DIR%/AE/profiles and %BASE_DIR%/SE/profiles).
      So, now I have FNIS installed and when I run it through the 'Skyrim Special Edition' instance, it runs as expected.  When I switch to the 'Skyrim Special Edition Classic' instance, FNIS gives me the following warning...
      FNIS Behavior V7.6   11/14/2021 2:35:15 PM
      Generator: F:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition Classic\data\tools\GenerateFNIS_for_Users\GenerateFNISforUsers.exe
      Skyrim SE 64bit: ??.??.?? - F:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\ (Steam)
      >>Warning: Expected generator path: F:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\data\tools\GenerateFNIS_for_Users not found<<
      I'm also getting similar pathing error when trying to run DynDOLOD through MO2...
      Error: Can not find DynDOLOD Resources SE core files to create improved LOD.
      Current Data path F:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\Data\
      Is there a way to run these utilities through MO2 with Skyrim SE being in a folder other than 'Skyrim Special Edition'?
