Thanks for the clarification.

 

J New Idles for Skyrim

 

As far as I can tell there's no way to get Wrye to install the EXE files for this mod (I tried Override Skips), which means you can't complete the detailed installation instructions. If there's a way to get this working under Wrye it should be listed in the note, otherwise the note should state that the EXE files need to be extracted manually.

I have verified that there is no way to get executables installed via WB, so I have clarified the detailed recommendations.

I can't say for certainty, but I think iLargeIntRefCount=131072 causes a crash when trying to enter a Helgen Keep entrance at the start of the game. I have been fixing a few things in my game today, so maybe it is not the case, but I moved it back to what it was before.

 

I haven't done much research on what this setting does.

I started a new game after moving to 2.2.6 and I didn't have that crash. My game does hang after a while, but haven't tracked that one down yet and it's not new to 2.2.6.

The hang is with me since 2.2.5, with W8 I need to "Sign Out" so I can gain access to the system again.

 

I was tracking it to RAM issues, but I can't confirm it. I still think it's something related to animations / effects, broken hkx maybe ?

 

With or without ini tweaks, it's all the same. Random hang when changing cells at random times. I'll clear my papyrus log one day, solving every script problem I have to see if it resolves the problem.

I was able to upgrade from 2.2.5 to 2.2.6 without incident, though I did notice most of the issues already mentioned above. 

 

What is the deal with the Crime Radius mod? I did some Googling and it sounds like this can be addressed with an INI tweak in Wrye Bash, but I don't see the option. Does this require an update to Wrye Bash? I try not to update anything between releases without a reason. 

 

Suggestion going forward -- when you release a new version, include in the Change Log both changes from 2.2.5 to 2.2.6 AND the changes to the 2.2.5 change log since its release. I would have never known to go back to the 2.2.5 change log to see what had changed since its release. I assume most people only update on major releases and are only checking the most recent log.

Thanks. I didn't see the Crime: Alarm Distance option in Wrye Bash when I looked yesterday but I will check again tonight.

It's not an INI option, you need to right-click Bashed Patch on the Mods list and choose Rebuild Patch.

Under Section 2C: extenders, it says to use Borderless Window for stuttering/AMD BUT at the bottom, under 3.A.5, it says to use SBW for AMD

Borderless window causes screen tearing for me on my gaming rig. I've reverted back to 314 drivers but the issue persisted. I'm running with a GTX 680.

Hangs seem to have stopped after I updated my Bash Patch. I didn't even know I had to do that. Hopefully it's smooth sailing from here.

Just rebuilt (built for the first time?) the bashed patch, and I got a little FPS boost. Maybe this is part of the development plan for 2.3 / transitioning to more technical details ala Skyrim Revisited, but I did not realize that bashed patch thing had to be done.

I certainly think that STEP should just declare Wrye the mod manager of choice, then integrate elements of guidance for it into the main STEP guide.

A few days ago, I would agree.

 

But MO have more functions (like integrated NMM manager, ini tweak, profiles, etc.) AND makes an EASY transaction between modded states and vanilla ones.

 

Wrye Bash is a good mod manager, but it has some drawbacks (like long waits every time you open the installers tabs after fresh open, slow extraction time [first to temp folder, then organize, then copy to data], etc.).

 

I turns out, I'm only using it for the Bashed Patch. :P
