SSE 1.6.1170 or MO2 Now Making Skyrim.INI Folder?

Recommended Posts


I just upgraded to SSE 1.6.1170, and I also installed the latest MO2 2.5.0. Since making these upgrades, I now noticed in \Documents\My Game path a Skyrim.INI folder being created, and I never had this before with SSE 1.6.640.0 and MO2 2.4.4, so I'm not sure where this is coming from.

I've attached a few screen shots showing this Skyrim.INI folder, if anyone knows what's happening? Because all the files use to go under this path; \Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition\SKSE

Some file are still using \Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition\SKSE but I'm still not sure why there is now this Skyrim.INI folder.

I have this folder too and am not sure what creates it:

\Documents\My Games\Skyrim.INI\SKSE

It seems like an alternative location for logs of some SKSE-dependent mods. The traditional location is:

\Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition\SKSE


  • I deleted both of these folders from \Documents\My Games\ (Skyrim.INI and Skyrim Special Edition\SKSE).
  • Both locations are created on launch of the game via MO but not via Steam.
  • Only the traditional location (Skyrim Special Edition\SKSE) is created when launching via skse64_loader.exe directly from my game folder.

... so \Documents\My Games\Skyrim.INI\SKSE is created either by MO or one of the SKSE-dependent runtime mods.

Google tells me nothing.

When run via MO ....
