Hello,

This is my first time using the STEP install guide, I'm using the Skyrim SE v2.0.0 guide, and after getting everything setup (following all recommendations) I have reached step 7.3.2 Run DynDOLOD, I receive several errors about missing files (appears to be the plugin, scripts, and activators for Bow of Shadows which is active in load order) and overwritten large references (many), and then the program seems to stop for extended periods of time, when left to its own devices after 6 hours running the last update in the log is at about an hour in while creating Solsteim texture atlas. I am so confused what I messed up because at the ENB benchmark phase the game worked, with seemingly all plugins operational. Any help would be appreciated, I'm really hoping to not have to redo this all from scratch.

Thanks.

Disable all mods after the performance check. Revert all settings likewise and get back to that setup. Then start over from that point once you verify it is all working as it was. Dyndolod will throw a single script error and a couple hundred warnings about large references. This is normal.

Just revert and revisit each instruction carefully and ensure you have DynDOLOD installed properly and with correct resource version.

Okay, just to clarify, I meant the performance check between all the ENB setup and generating LODS, not the initial performance check. After the ENB install and setup everything was working as intended. To undo the xLODGen, ACMOS Road Generator, and TexGen steps I assume I should just disable the matching plugins and try reactivating in order? Without xLODGen or TexGen plugin enabled it runs, with xLODGen plugin enabled it runs, with xLODGen and TexGen plugins enabled it runs. Reinstalled the 3.0 DynDOLOD utility and resources, reconfigured the .ini and regenerated the output folder. Re-running the program it now seems to stop earlier on:

 Creating C:\Modding\Tools\DynDOLOD\DynDOLOD_Output\textures\lod\smim_smelter_spoutlod.dds

I apologize if my troubleshooting attempts are wrong or unhelpful, this is my first time using any of the LOD functions.

There very possibly is nothing wrong with your setup. It could simply be that there was just an issue generating DynDOLOD. I would recommend posting logs to DynDOLOD alpha thread to check with sheson.

Will do, one of the I guess weird things is after it appears to stop, its CPU, disk, and GPU utilization are all 0% yet it's using roughly a gigabyte of RAM, but yeah, it's still stuck at the same spot, so I'll share my logs over there, just disappointed, wanted to try to get some time on the game before the weekend. Thanks again.

Another thing you may want to do is add all of the processes that generate output of more than one file (Nemesis Unlimited Behavior Engine.exe, xLODGenx64.exe, TexGenx64.exe, DynDOLODx64.exe) to windows defender process exclusion (must use the full executable name), or disable real time scanning while running these executables. I've had problems with all of them crapping out during execution because windows defender interrupted operation in some way. I've also added the output directories to the exclusion list, though I'm not sure if that's necessary.

I had problems as well, setting the page file to system managed fixed it for me I think.

      Following a clean re-install of Skyrim AE, I've been reinstalling the Step Guide and had intended to include everything. Because of this I have installed the ENB options in all the steps prior to Post Processing. Now I'm not so sure I want to install/run an ENB with this build. Is it safe to jump to Step 05 or do I need to remove and reinstall the mods with the Post Processing (blue) flag? I am getting between 91-115 FPS in Riften with my new 144 Hz monitor.

      Hi! I have been trying to mod my Skyrim game for a couple of days now and I have been meticulosly following the STEP Skyrim Special Editio Guidelines and I have finally arrived to step 6.24.2. I already finished sorting the plugins with LOOT and already finished the standar cleaning procedures. Now I have to proceed with the performance benchmark which requires to launch the game for the first time after downloading and installing all the mods. Now here is the problem: When launching Skyrim, it will open, it shows the logo and a little loading animation on the bottom right, and it closes itself after a couple of seconds -No error pop ups or anything. I am pretty new when it comes to modding and I have no idea of what could be causing this problem, and I would love to fix this instead of uninstalling everything and retrying in a couple of months.
      Thank a lot beforehand!

      SKSE plugin with customizable JSON configuration.
      QOL: Disables collision between player and NPCs so that they don't push the player or block narrow passages.
      The description on the Nexus mod page is very short and rather vague:
      What this does exactly is disabling collision so the NPCs are no longer solid: they can walk through the player and vice-versa. They'll still get in your face while you're in a conversation, or clump together stuck in passageways. So it's not perfect, but it's much better than vanilla.
      The following NPCs and situations are addressed:
      Disables collision while the player is in dialogue. Disables collision between the player and their allies. Disables collision between the player and their summons. Disables collision between the player and their allies' summons. Each of the above can be turned on or off via configuration settings (all ON by default).
