Hi I am z929669, as the page title says(^). I am the primary process administrator of the STEP website. I am 45+ years old, married with kids over 20.

I love technical stuff and gathering information about ... everything, although administrating this site often keeps me from doing the modding that I love to do (I am not really a mod author, but more of a mod user, but I have a hand in many mods and their upkeep).

My favorite game is Morrowind, but I love Skyrim and several other games (Quake 2 was my first love).

Feel free to leave me a note on my talk page or leave me a PM on the forums.

stoppingby4now (s4n) WAS our primary technical site administrator, and he is also a site founder and process administrator; however, he left us with no word, just 'poof'.

Mod Name Baseline Instructions
FileAccess Interface for Skyrim SE ScriptsLink to the mod's Wiki page. Install only the FileAccess Interface for Skyrim SE Scripts - FISSES optional file for compatibility with
NET Script FrameworkLink to the mod's Wiki page. Ignore the required Loader. A loader will be installed with SkyrimSE:SSE Engine Fixes.
PapyrusUtil SELink to the mod's Wiki page. Install the PapyrusUtil SE - Scripting Utility Functions Miscellaneous File.
Scaleform Translation++Link to the mod's Wiki page.
SKSE64Link to the mod's Wiki page. Detailed Instructions available
Root Files Installation
  1. Download the "Current SE build" archive file.
  2. Open the archive and extract the following files to the Skyrim Special Edition root folder ..\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition:
    • skse64_X_X_X.dll
    • skse64_loader.exe
    • skse64_steam_loader.dll
  3. Keep this archive open for the next steps.
Data Files Installation
  1. Click on the MOlistoptions.png button and select, [Create empty mod].
  2. Name it SKSE64.
    • This places the new, empty mod at the bottom of the mod list.
  3. Enable SKSE64 in the MO left pane.
  4. Open the SKSE64 in Windows Explorer (Ctrl + double-click).
  5. Create a new folder named SKSE and open it.
INI File
  1. Within the SKSE folder, create a new file named SKSE.ini i.e. ..SKSE64\SKSE\SKSE.ini
  2. Open the new file and copy and paste the code in the box below, and save and close the file when finished.

[Display] iTintTextureResolution=2048 [General] ClearInvalidRegistrations=1

  1. From the archive downloaded above, open the Data folder e.g. SKSE64_x_x_x.7z/SKSE64_x_x_x/Data/
  2. Extract the scripts folder from the archive to the SKSE64 folder i.e. ..\SKSE64\scripts\.
  3. Close archive and Windows Explorer sessions.

Once complete, the SKSE64 mod's folder structure should be:

  • ..\SKSE64
    • \scripts
      • \Source
        • <file list>
      • <file list>
    • \SKSE
      • \skse.ini
    • \meta.ini
Launcher Configuration

Normally, MO should auto-detect that SKSE is installed upon a restart of the program, and it will auto-generate the SKSE game launcher. This should be used for launching Skyrim going forward. Below are some recommendations for further configuration of the SKSE launcher ... or, if for some reason MO fails to configure this. Please ensure the following is correct for SKSE:

  1. In MO, click the Gear MO.png button at the top of the main Mod Organizer window.
  2. Over the left pane, click the [+] (add executable button) and select [Add from file...].
  3. Navigate to the skse64_loader.exe file (e.g., ..\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\skse64_loader.exe).
  4. "SKSE" can be renamed for clarity, however, if this is done, MO will automatically create the "SKSE" launcher again and place it at bottom of the list.
  5. Use this executable to launch Skyrim SE going forward.

SSE Engine FixesLink to the mod's Wiki page. Detailed Instructions available
  1. Download and install (Part 1) Engine Fixes for 1.5.xx Main File in MO.
  2. Download (Part 2) Engine Fixes preloader Main File.
  3. Extract the contents of the second archive to the root Skyrim SE directory (e.g. ../Steam/SteamApps/Common/Skyrim Special Edition)

Once installed, double-click on the mod to open up the information window, and ensure the following settings in EngineFixes.toml ("Text Files" tab):

[Patches] EnableAchievementsWithMods = true FormCaching = true MaxStdio = 2048 TreeLODReferenceCaching = true WaterflowAnimation = true WaterflowSpeed = 16.0 ; 20.0 = default. Smaller = slower, larger = faster [Fixes] ArcheryDownwardAiming = true AnimationLoadSignedCrash = true DoublePerkApply = true LipSync = true MemoryAccessErrors = true MO5STypo = true SlowTimeCameraMovement = true TreeReflections = true VerticalLookSensitivity = true

Leave the remainder of the settings at their defaults, unless the changes are known and desired.
