I cannot get Archive Invalidation working for Fallout New Vegas in MO2. It works fine in MO1, but MO1 lacks functionality for the JIP LN custom ini's in its INI Edior, and I'm not sure if those ini settings are working at all from the profiles folder. My problems are:
I have "Automatic Archive Invalidation" checked on the profiles page, but this does nothing at all. Archive invalidation mods do not work because they are all done through .bsa archives, and MO2 does not handle archives. Thus it is impossible to enable the AI .bsa.
AI work fine in MO1 since that manager can handle archives and the checkboxes in the Archives tab work. "Automatic Archive Invalidation" still does nothing in MO1. I would be thankful for any suggestions on gettnig AI to work in MO2 with a method that doesn't involve .bsa's.
I downloaded MO the other day to learn my way around the program for Skyrim (I first downloaded v1.2.15, but just a few hours ago I downloaded v1.2.16 and the issue is still there). I've already modded with NMM many times in the past so while I may not know much, I'm not completely unfamiliar with modding. I've followed all of Gopher's tutorials and the tutorials that come with MO and everything has went well so far. I even installed a few different mods to see if they were working and they were!
But then I got to Profiles. I had heard that go to the Profiles section where you manage them, you need to have the box called "Automatic Archive Invalidation" enabled. I see both that box and the "Local Saves" box, but I can't tick archive invalidation since it's always grayed out (I can however tick Local Saves for what it's worth). Creating a new profile lets me tick that box ONLY if I select "Default Game Settings" when creating it. Nothing else will let me.
Let me add that I've tried this with mods enabled, no mods enabled, on a fresh install of Skyrim, with existing saves, with no existing saves, etc. I even uninstalled MO, deleted all traces of it, and reinstalled and still have the same problem.
I figured maybe this was intentional in some way? In the Workarounds section, the Backdate BSAs button says that it can be used instead of AI but does that mean I need to press it before I've installed mods, after I've installed them, after I've created a new profile, only one time, or what?
I apologize if this is a stupid question, but I can't find anywhere that says anything about this.
Here are my system specs even though I don't think they're necessary in this context: https://wiki.step-project.com/User:Garybenoak/SystemSpecs
