Unpacking BSAs after mod is installed

Question

My current understanding is BSAs will load when their esp is loaded.  i don't know where that will be exactly until at least LOOT sorts things and maybe I need to adjust further.  Given the plugin LO may settle into an order that gives me asset LO i don't want I may to extract the BSA after the mod is installed.  Is that possible?  Or do I need to reinstall the mod and click on the extract option.

BSA extraction is generally discouraged. If you require a plugin-loaded bsa to be loaded after another plugin-loaded bsa, you can easily add a LOOT "load after" rule to enforce that.

You can extract any BSA via the Archives tab. You will need to select the relevant mod folder, so depending on the difficulty of installing the mod, it may be easier to reinstall.

Click Configure Settings and Workaround (the screwdriver/wrench icon in the toolbar at top), click the Plugins tab, click BSA Extractor in the plugins list on the left, change enabled to true and click OK to save the changes. When you install a mod that contains a BSA archive, Mod Organizer will ask if you want to extract the files in the BSA.

 

If the mod is already installed, click Archives in the right pane, right click on the BSA file you want to extract, click Extract. As DY mentions, you'll need to select the appropriate mod folder to use for the extraction. This normally should be the same mod that the BSA came from.

      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?
