DynDOLOD searches in wrong directory I think

Question

Hi as the title suggest I think that DynDOLOD searches in the wrong directory because I get the "Can not find DynDOLOD Resources core files required to create improved LOD."

I use the SSE version of Skyrim not LE

 

The DynDOLOD executable is set up as through Mod organiser 2.4.2:

Title: DynDOLOD

Binary: C:\Skyrim Modding Tools\DynDOLOD\DynDOLODx64.exe

Start in:

Arguments: -sse

 

When I launch it, it ends with an error saying: Error: Can not find DynDOLOD Resources SE core files required to create improved LOD.  RTFM DynDOLOD_Manual_SSE.html requirements section.  Verify the core files from DynDOLOD Resources SE archive has been installed completly.  Verify the game is starting in the desired game mode. Current mode: SSE Current Data path C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\Data\

But I'm 99% sure I installed the Resources file correctly ( See attached file)

Shouldn't it search in "C:\The Phoenix Flavour\mods"  instead  of C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\Data\. Yes I use the Phoenix Flavour since it contains about 70% of my favorite mods.

 

So my Skyrim is installed in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition

My mod folder in: C:\The Phoenix Flavour\mods 

DynDOLOD Resources SE is installed in: C:\The Phoenix Flavour\mods\DynDOLOD Resources SE

What should I do to fix this? move my mod folder to Skyrim Special Edition\Data? I'm afraid i'll break my mod list/loading order.

 

Thanks in advance!

Read and learn how MO2 works. If you have problems how to use MO2, check its documentation and help forum, discord etc. DynDOLOD, like any other tools or the game itself do not care about mod managers or how they work. They expect their files at the usual location. Physically or virtually.

From the manual:
"Install the Core Files from either DynDOLOD Resources or DynDOLOD Resources SE depending on the used game version, which contain the folders 'interface', 'meshes', 'textures' and 'scripts' into the games 'Data' folder. Typically overwrite any files or refer to Load/Overwrite Orders. Install other options from DynDOLOD Resources into games 'Data' folder as desired."

Install the DynDOLOD Resources SE as any other mod via the mod manager install function. Activate the mod. Use the MO2 right Windows data tab to check the virtual data folder. Start the tools or game through the mod manager.

Do not install the game into special Windows folders like Program Files x86 to avoid issues with Windows UAC, antivir etc.. Follow any basic modding guide that explains these rudimentary modding things.

I dont have any other problems with using MO2 except for now.

You basically answered here what I already did. 

This is the video I watched, I watched it 5 times already and still the same error.

 

I attached a file where you can see DynDOLOD Resources SE is installed. Its there its right there as you can see! the folders 'interface', 'meshes', 'textures' and 'scripts' all there...

I quote you:  "Install the DynDOLOD Resources SE as any other mod via the mod manager install function. Activate the mod. Use the MO2 right Windows data tab to check the virtual data folder. Start the tools or game through the mod manager." Thats what i did "as any other mod via the mod manager install function"  I installed it as any other mod which work correctly, so I dont really know what I did wrong.

 

I succesfully used DynDOLOD a few years ago without any problems and also through Mod Organizer only difference is I used the Skyrim LE instead of SE, so its kind of a bummer it won't work now.

DynDOLOD checks if a couple key files from the DynDOLOD Resources Core Files exist in the load order. e.g. the shown data folder.

If the file exist check fails, then message is printed. Which means, the OS tells DynDOLOD the files do not exist. Either because of the files do not exist or because the OS/antivir block access.

Programs work that straight forward.

Make sure the archive download completely and that all content of its "00 DynDOLOD Core Files - Required" folder are installed.
Make sure the tools are allowed access and are not blocked by Windows UAC or antivir.

The screenshot shows some folders. It does not show if all files from the "00 DynDOLOD Core Files - Required" are installed.

The screenshot does not show if MO2 virtualizes the mods to the shown game data path. Make sure that MO2 is actually setup to use the game folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\ or make sure the Windows Registry contains the correct path to the used game location. In that case cleaning plugins with xEdit or using other tools should have related problems, like not seeing all the installed and activated mods/plugins.

Do not install the game into special Windows folders like Program Files x86 to avoid issues with Windows UAC, antivir etc.

I moved my mod folder from C:\The Phoenix Flavour\mods to C:\Users\Niels\AppData\Local\ModOrganizer\Skyrim Special Edition\mods and now it works.
