xEdit Cache - Overwrite

Question

Is it save to keep the xEdit produced cache files in the overwrite folder? Or should I always remove them before starting my game?

 

As It is faster loading with xEdit with the files in overwrite but I'm afraid it can be harmful to my game?

You can create a mod out of the contents of the overwrite folder and then modify the executable to always write to this mod. Just enable the "Create files in mod instead of overwrite" and select the mod just created from the drop down box.  Enable the mod and anything xEdit creates will go into this mod.

 

See attached picture.

I do and I do not see anything that would say otherwise. Just remember I you make a new ESP that is where it will go.

Just so you know, the overwrite mod has the highest priority in MO. So any files in there will overwrite the rest of the load order. it is good practice to keep it clear of files.

      1. I've been using MO 2 for years for 3 of my games, Skyrim, Skyrim SE and FA4.  No problems and yesterday  I know I did something wrong because the top line of items is missing and Skyrim SE is the only game I can access.  But I don't know what I did or how to fix it.  I've  uninstalled and reinstalled with no change.   Hoping someone has done this and can explain how to fix it.

      Hey all.
      Sorry if this has been asked but I couldn't find anything.
      I got a Steam Deck recently and was in the process of setting Skyrim SE up with mods.
      Right now it actually works, however I can't seem to figure out how to launch Skyrim SE Launcher? I need to change settings so it runs better.
      When I open Skyrim from Steam, or use bottles to run Skyrim SE Launcher, it launches MO2. From there I have to select SKSE and hit run and it launches.
      If I click the drop down and select Skyrim Special Edition Launcher, it says an instance of mod organizer is already running.
      Any ideas on how I can get around this to launch the launcher so I can change my settings?
      It seems there is _SkrimLauncher.exe file that must of been automatically created by MO2, however when I run that with Bottles, and make changes, it doesn't seem to have the changes when I run SKSE.
      Thanks for any help!

      I have always used Wrye with MO but now on a fresh install of everything(Skyrim SE) when I try to rebuild the Bashed Patch I get an error saying "file not found, it may have been moved, edited or deleted. I have no idea what that means since it doesn't even tell me what file is supposedly missing. Any ideas as to whats going on here?
