So, I found a second word wall but I was reluctant to interact with it because there was no writing on the wall and no light channel effect that followed my character.  I eventually decided to get close to it and I learned a Shout.  After the process finished and the normal light ambiance returned to the room, writing did appear on the wall.

I'm wondering if this is a bug or not.  I presume it is and not a trap, and why I eventually walked closer to the wall to acquire a new Shout.

Best practice is to approach all word walls in the hopes of receiving a word. Most often the music is indicative of a word, and, maybe certain angles, the words lighting up. Sometimes I have had the music play for walls that I have already learned a word for. It is quite possible that bugs exist for this.

Yeah.  I heard the chanting and why I presumed it's a bug, but there was this indecision based on the room and combat I just experienced, the mages using fire so much I was hesitant considering they may have rigged it.  I tried many angles to try to see clearly to no avail, but I wasn't keen enough on trying to reset the room since the door was kind of far.

If the combat involved a lot of magic effects, I wonder if it tripped a visual bug in the word wall that obscured or caused it to fail to render the text. This is just a wild guess so take it with a grain of salt.

      Hey all!
      Did my complete STEP installment. I have two issues. The first is that there is a shadow following my character, at least at evening hours, around 6:30 pm ingame as can be seen on the screenshot. The sun is over the Falkreath hold, when I walk close, the edge of the shadow follows at the same distance it is in the screenshot. Meaning I can only see the sun, I can't be in the sun. This seems to be specific to the area surounding Falkreath however. The issue seems to be tied to something that generates or renders at approximately the distance of the shadow seen in the screenshot, because a similar, but much less visible effect appears when walking around other places such as around Riverwood or the plains of Whiterun. 
      The other is no dual sheathe. 
      I don't know what could've caused this, did the STEP setup by the letter, including Nemesis, so I'm thinking it might be one of the few mods I installed outside of STEP.
      These mods are
      Civil War Overhaul
      Expanded Towns and Cities
      Vigilant and the accompanied hi-res textures for the areas made for that
      Apocalypse + Vokrii compatibility
      Cloaks of Skyrim + CCOR compatibility patch
      While my knowledge is quite limited on the subject, the only thing I'm thinking that perhaps Cloaks of Skyrim could mess with the dual sheath. I haven't troubleshooted yet by trying to turn them off, I will do so tomorrow - merely wanted to put this out there, in case someone had experienced this themselves and immediately know the issue.
      Hoping for help!
      ~Sincerely
      Halde

      Hello,
      I would like to remove WACCF from conflict resolution patch, but I'm new to xEdit. Is it enough that I uncheck it in CR patch installer? STEP guide says that "a minor subset of this mod's changes are forced by the Step patches". Could anyone point me at which records to remove? Thanks in advance

      Title says it all, couldn't find a thread on it, and it's not mentioned in the guide. I'm leaning towards renaming it?
      ~Sincerely
