It isn't clear from your comment how are you using DDSopt. DDSopt is designed on use on individual mods or collections of individual mods, not on all the textures in the Data\textures folder or on all the mods in the Mod Organizer\mods directory in a single pass.

You are not suppose to run DDSOpt on the entire SR:LE. Use it only where instructed or you are asking for trouble especially with NPC textures among others. The file in question belongs to Wearable Lanterns.

Thank you both for your replies. I understand that I am not supposed to run DDSOpt on all the files.


However, one of the main "methods" discussed on a number of "troubleshooting" sites is to reduce texture size using either DDSOpt or Optimizer Textures on the entire textures directory.


I will report the failing texture on the Wearable Lantern page as well as on the DDSOpt page, although I suspect that both are no longer in development.


I just wanted to post this here in case someone else in the future had an issue, not to actually get any assistance or troubleshooting. I should have been more clear about that in my post, and I apologise for the confusion.

And... I meant to put this in the DDSOpt forum. I apologize, I'm a moron.


Can a mod please move this to the correct forum? Thanks.

Even if I move the posts to the DDSopt Troubleshooting forum some posts will remain here. I'll answer the question in a new thread on the DDSopt Troubleshooting forum.

      Anyway, I'm using a laptop with 1366x768 display and running the game at 1280x720 resolution.

      I'm planning to resize them up to 1024x1024 (uncompressed and compressed maps).

      Is it safe to do so?

      Hei thanks for your work and dedication.
      One thing i don't find clear. I suppose that changing in MO to be able to extract .BSA's (which as far i know in my years playing Skyrim many mod authors don't recommend) it is for pass their textures through DDSopt, but being that the case, many other mods, like A Matter of Time for example do not need that (I suppose that because in the guide it is not indicated)
      So, my confusion it is that with that setting in MO (extract BSA) every time i install a mod i am asked if i want to extract the bsa, normally i say not to, but i have had a weird problem with a mod that i have not had ever a problem, AMT, the game didn't load it, even with the mod active in both MO panels.
      I fiddle with everything to get it work and finally disabling the extractor made it for the game to recognize it.
      Now i put back the ability to extract because i am in the Falskaar step, but i wonder if this is going to happen with other mods too, that are not that easy to identify as AMT
      Should I extract all the bsa, disregarding if they gonna go through DDSopt or not? Or should I extract only the DDSpot"et" bsa?

      Hello everyone.
      My question today is about texture optimization for Helgen Reborn.It there a reason for it to be not included in the guide?
      And if all is fine and i can do it , should i do it the same way as Falskaar in SRLE guide?Or any other mods thats mentioned in https://wiki.step-project.com/Guide:DDSopt/Skyrim
