Loot not working

Question

When I run loot it doesn't seem to sort my mods according to proper load order. For the most part it seems to just sort the mods alphabetically. Help.

Yes, it's well known that it will put mods that do not have a specific dependency in alphabetical order. This is not unexpected behavior.

You don't need to. It only does it to mods that have no specific dependency in the Masterlist or via user defined rules.

Look. It worked fine yesterday. Then I move the entire Mod Organizer folder to a new harddrive, and now it doesn't work. It used to know that proccer patches should be last and warburgs map should second to last now, it has no clue. Something is terribly wrong and need to be fixed!

You might have mentioned that from the start, rather than assume I or anyone else that helped you knew that. Might have come in handy, maybe?

 

Double check your LOOT's pointing to the correct Skyrim install path and that your MO executable is pointing to the right place first.

If Skyrim is installed to <path to game> and MO is installed to <path to MO> and LOOT is installed to <path to LOOT> and they are all unrelated, moving your MO installation should have no bearing on how LOOT sorts your plugins.

 

LOOT's masterlist & userlist will be in your %localappdata%\LOOT\Skyrim folder and since the LOOT code will see the installed game based on the registry entry Bethesda setup, as far as LOOT is concerned nothing has changed when you move MO.

 

However, just to be sure, remove the current entry to LOOT from MO's executables list and then add it back in, this will, for all intents and purpose, be like a fresh install of LOOT for MO. Or you can post your current ModOrganizer.ini so we can see how you have these tools setup if you can't figure out how to check for yourself.

You run loot as an external application (not the "Sort" button in MO), right?

a) Does the report in loot show all the plugins?

b) Does loot report any errors?

c) Please go to settings (in MO) and check the paths under advanced, do they point to the right paths?

d) Inside MO, do you get error messages about write failures?

 

 

I can think of two things that may go wrong:

a) moving MO broke some of its configuration and now its not presenting the virtual file system correctly. In this case loot should show it's having trouble in its UI.

b) The new MO folder isn't correctly writeable and hence your sorted load order doesn't get saved. With no defined load order it will always default to alphabetical.

Okay, before I go through all the complicated steps, I do just use the "Sort" button, how do I install it as an external application?

The 'complicated' steps should be addressed first.

Since you say you are using MO's internal 'Sort' function there is clearly now an issue with your MO installation.

 

Examine the points @Tannin has listed and please provide any logs or messages that MO gives.

Sorry for not touching this thread for so long, I just thought I'd let you know, I just updated MO and now LOOT is working perfectly.
