Cannot get OBSE to work with MO2, even following guides...

Question

Greetings, here is my situation/setup:

 

- Fresh Steam install of Oblivion (Only the 3 Unofficial Patches have been installed). 

- Both my Steam library and MO2 are installed on a dedicated gaming drive (F:) 

- Using only Mod Organizer 2 (No other mod management tool is installed at the moment).

- Installed OBSE v21 as per the Readme instructions.

- Oblivion starts up normally from Oblivion.exe and OblivionLauncher.exe without issue.

 

When attempting to start Oblivion from MO2 (either the oblivion.exe or oblivionlauncher.exe) I get a CTD after the starting logos play. The error is a generic Windows error message "Something has caused this program to stop working. Please close the program."

 

To try and resolve this I found these 2 guides online:

 

https://github.com/ModOrganizer2/modorganizer/wiki/Running-Oblivion-OBSE-with-MO2

 

and 

 

https://github.com/ModOrganizer2/modorganizer/wiki/Executables-window

 

They seem to overlap but in either case when I get to the part in the first link that says,

 

"Select Oblivion.exe, Check the Force Load Libraries and click on the Configure Libraries button. Check the checkbox on the line that says Oblivion.exe and obse_1_2_416.dll."

 
That simply wasn't possible for me, as the box with those options was entirely blank. There was no "Oblivion.exe" or "obse_1_2_416.dll" for me to select. So, I manually added both of those files using the "Add Line" option then made sure to check the checkbox next to the lines with the file names and ensured "Force load libraries" is checked as well. The results are the same CTD message upon startup. 
 
I tried shutting down and restarting MO2, no change.
 
I re-verified that I installed OBSE according to the Readme for the Steam edition of Oblivion, I did.
 
I tried deleting my Oblivion startup folder under /Documents and launching the game (bypassing MO2) to recreate the folder and oblivion.ini file, no change.
 
I tried rebooting my PC, no change.
 
I'm at a total loss for what I can do to move forward.  ::(:

Sorry, I have not used Oblivion in a while, But I will try to help.

 

 

I have attached a short PDF for the process to follow. it is quick throw together so pardon the roughness of it.

 

I wanted to stop by and say thank you for trying to assist me. While the guide did not result in success, it did give me another venue to try and I learned a bit from the experience.

 

In the end I purchased a second copy of Oblivion from GOG.com which never had the same problem as the Steam version did.

 

I believe the Steam DRM layer may have been the root cause, although I cannot be sure.

      Hi, 
      I'm modding SkyrimSE with MO2 by following this version of the step guide: https://stepmodifications.org/wiki/SkyrimSE:1.0.0#04-Foundation. I've followed everything until now but experience problems with the first mod I need to install without using Nexus. It's Skyrim SE particle patch for ENB and I downloaded 'SPECIAL EDITION > ALL-IN-ONE INSTALLATION > LATEST VERSION (GOOGLE DRIVE)'. It's installation went fine (Situation A) but when I have to enable the optional ESP 'Particle Patch for ENB SSE.esp' I get the message 'Plugin not found: Particle Patch for ENB SSE.esp' in my log (Situation B). 
      I've tried: reinstalling the mod, refreshing, enabling and disabling the mod, restarting MO2, re-downloading the file. It doesn't fix my problem. I've added the pictures of situation A and B. I hope there are people who can help me here. Thanks so much in advance!

      Hello!

      I've stumbled upon a weird issue that I haven't encountered or read about before. I'm running Windows 8.1 and a fresh install of Fallout New Vegas with no mods so far. I'm trying to get Mod Organizer and the 4GB exe to work together, but despite following all of the advice, tips and workarounds it's still not happening. Right now I can launch the 4GB exe through Mod Organizer. The game starts, I can load a save and 'play'. The problem is that all of the text has disappeared or is invisible. I can only navigate the main menu by memory, the ingame popups regarding the DLC is missing the text as well.

      This issue does not happen if I start the game on its own with the normal exe.
      This issue does not happen if I start the 4GB exe on its own.

      It only happens if I start the either the normal or the 4GB exe through Mod Organizer.

      NVSE is being loaded, it doesn't matter if I'm using NVSE stable or beta.
      I'm using NVAC, without it the game crashes before arriving at the main menu. NVAC seems to be working, the log is showing several handled errors. (Pastebin)
      Yes, I've added '-laaexe .\FalloutMO.exe' to the launch arguments, that helped me get around the access is denied error but produced this text error.
      I did try compatability modes, I've tried starting MO, the 4GB or both as administrator. No dice.

      I've arrived at a point where I really don't know what it could be or what I could try next. One thing I do know, however, is that I can't go back to the pre-MO modding, so I'm turning to you helpful people and hope that someone here has an idea.

      Thanks in advance!
       
      Pictures:
      New Vegas installation folder
      Mod Organizer executable settings
      Disappeared text main menu #1
      Disappeared text main menu #2
      Disappeared text ingame
       
      Edit:
       
      I deleted all of the fallout .inis as well in case some of my text/font settings were messed up, but that didn't work either.

      Is there a way to make GaryBash work with MO in Fallout 3? I tried to use it as executable, but MO wouldn't recognized the Wrye launcher as such. It surprised me, because MO had no problem recognizing the Wrye Bash launcher for Oblivion, but I don't have the same luck with Wrye Flash. When I browse the Moppy folder to try to find the Binary, Wrye Bash Debug is the only application the MO can see.
