Experience: CTD and Infinite Loading Screen fix!?

Question

This is to help the usual problems that people have CTDs, Infinite Loading Screen, Low FPS.


So my suggestion if you are experiencing these problems.  BACK UP the old ini.

Go to your skyrim folder and open Skyrim Launcher-->Options  and that will create new ini in the %User%/My Documents/My Games/Skyrim

copy n paste them over your Mod Organizer Profile skyrim.ini and skyrimprefs.ini.

Then just add the STEP 2.2.6 ini tweaks.  Create a folder somewhere else and backup the ini again After your changes that ways its a simple copy n paste in the future.

EVERY TIME its a ini issue.   Download the SKSE Alpha or use the mod: SSME on nexus.
Have Fun.




LONG ANSWER:




Since I Installed Skyrim I follow the STEP 2.2.6.  I use Mod Organizer, ugrids=7 Plus Skyre, Deadly Dragons, Dawnspire...

Aug. 12 install date.  Since then I have CTDs and Infinite Loading Screen.
And EVERY TIME its a ini issue.  At least for me.  The mods and apps work brilliantly.  Even though I have some errors in papyrus. When I go back to default (even when I haven't done any thing with the ini) I have 60fps smoothness and Fast Loads and load wherever I want.

So my suggestion if you are experiencing these problems.  BACK UP the old ini.
Go to your skyrim folder and open Skyrim Launcher-->Options  and that will create new ini in the %User%/My Documents/My Games/Skyrim and copy n paste them over your Mod Organizer Profile skyrim.ini and skyrimprefs.ini.
Then just add the STEP 2.2.6 ini tweaks.


My Steps to PLAY:

In MO and after I add a MoD I run BOSS to get my load order.  then I put 1 esp where it needs to be then I run FNIS.  Then I run Wyre Bash and create a Bash Patch and MoveIt.esp gets merged and deactivated.  Finally I run Reproccer.  Then I open RaedonPRO in MO then I play.



Here are my Ultra ini with the STEP 2.2.6. ini tweaks and a papyrus tweaks. 
I don't have zFighting or the wierd texture black line/box thing 20' in front of you.

@admins If you feel this Thread Does not Belong here then move it or delete it. 


This tip was hard to find (going back to default ini).  Even though its said on other forums and threads, what does one more hurt? lol
Seriously  I don't change my ini at least not to my knowledge.  Maybe I was drunk and messed with them.  Who knows but they seem to get changed.  Like the havak tweak or multithreading or w/e.



Thank You STEP Community.  You have all helped my headaches turn into bliss.

I am now getting Infinite Loading Screens with the STEP ZFighting tweak. so I reverted that back to ultra default. Going to try a compromise between the 2. (step zfight tweak and vanilla)

 

Terrain Manager is what I am talking about under skyrimprefs.

STEP Z Fighting Tweak:

[Terrainmanager]

fBlockMaximumDistance=500000

fBlockLevel1Distance=140000

fBlockLevel0Distance=75000

fSplitDistanceMult=4.0

 

Vanilla:

[TerrainManager]

fTreeLoadDistance=25000.0000

fBlockMaximumDistance=100000.0000

fBlockLevel1Distance=32768.0000

fBlockLevel0Distance=20480.0000

fSplitDistanceMult=0.7500

bShowLODInEditor=0

 

Maybe blockLevel1=100000 + level2=50000

maybe the fSplitDistanceMult=2
