Alternate Start causing crash on new game

Recommended Posts

Hi all, hope you can help me out here.

 

I have started Skyrim:SE with a clean build, this is the first time I've installed the SE version of the game. Being a fan of the STEP project on the Legendary edition I looked up and followed the instructions for your SE build. However, after following all the steps up to the end of step 4 I attempted (as instructed) to run the game and check that the mods are all working correctly. Upon starting a new game I am greeted (briefly) with a loading screen with nothing but the empty level bar in the top right corner and a little animated mist in the bottom left before the game crashes to desktop.

I then proceeded to activate and deactivate the mods in order to narrow down where the problem lay. If I disable Live another life and the mods that depend on it (patches for the most part) the game will load into the cart ride perfectly fine and I have followed this line through the start of character generation with no issues. Also, if I disable all other mods but Live another life then it works fine on its own. So I'm assuming that I've either installed something wrong, missed a mod/patch or something is conflicting with it and I have no idea where to start in diagnosing this issue further.

Any ideas as to what could be the problem?

 

I'm currently using MO 2.3.0. and following STEP 0.3.0b

ditto, that would be the simplest explanation. There are a hundred other explanations if not that. I added this explicitly to this part of the guide.

Yup, I've run Loot as per the guides instructions. I assumed it might be a load order issue at first and tried making Live another life and its patches the last thing to load but that just stops the game from loading at all. If I slide them back till the game loads it still crashes on new game start.

Ok, through disabling all mods but Live another Life and selectively enabling them I was able to identify the problem. I seems the New Thinner Torch mod was causing the issue. I can only assume I must have installed the wrong version as after a reinstall of the mod (and slowly re-enabling each of the mods in turn) it looks like it's running fine now.

      Hello,
      Not too long ago I modded my game after following the current STEP guide for SSE. After that, over time I added a few more mods not included in the guide and one of the ENB presets suggested in the guide for Cathedral Weathers, namely A Cathedralist's ENB. I downloaded and installed the high-quality main file from here: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/25296?tab=files . I have been playing the game during weeks without game-breaking issues and the ENB has been working fine.
      Very recently, however, I have noticed that the brightness output level in-game has suddenly shrunk. I have started to see things darker while I am playing. I play in exclusive fullscreen mode. However, any changes in the in-game brightness slider do nothing while I am playing. But if I quit to the main menu, there the previously adjusted brightness level is apparent. In other words, any changes made to the in-game brightness only reflect themselves while in the main menu, not while I am playing. Is that normal? Does it happen because I have installed ENB 0.462 and the aforementioned preset? Of course, I can always adjust the brightness levels in the in-game ENB menus. But it puzzles me that any changes made to the vanilla brightness slider only are apparent once I quit to the main menu of the game.
      Thank you for reading me.

      Hello,
      I'm following the STEP guide for SSE.  I've gotten to the H segment of the Models & Textures section.  A couple of these have not had an ESP file.
      Do I need to have it ticked in the left window of MO2?  I'm up to 85 mods enabled now, just following the guide, and I'm concerned that I'll reach the 255 limit before I'm done.
      I've used the search function in the forums, but there are hundreds of results for "no esp".
      Thanks in advance.
