  • Updated some sound files to not use compression

 

 

Well that officially confirms what we have known for a long time, over-compressing sound files ( in the sound files format and / or BSA compression ) causes problems

 

An experienced guess would be they caused load / cue / playback timing issues

So the loadorder bug still exist?

 

I think I want to wait a little longer, I was hoping that Bethesda would fix the loadorder bug in their first game patch.  Anyway, thanks for posting this.

About this load order bug:

 

I know we have traditionally always used the DLCs release order. But considering that:

1) The game now load them in this order except if you force it through INIs like IP mentioned (which most players won't)

2) This same older is the default one for the CK (I haven't tested, but I guess this is still based on the timestamp)

 

What about adopting this new load order as standard ? This is the one most players, especially casuals, and necessarily all console players, will have anyway. There might be a few adjustment to do for big mods (USSEP and Open Cities), but I believe in the end it would make everything way simpler for EVERYONE. I personnaly ignore reports of "masters in wrong order" and explain to people that this is actually plain wrong, since this is the order their masters actually are loaded in their game. And I believe I am doing the right thing here.

No, it's a bug. One they had in FO4 that they fixed for FO4 but never backported for SSE.

 

The CK still loads by timestamp and is treating things correctly as long as you keep the official DLCs in the right timestamp order.

 

Further, the key component of this bug, user generated ESM files end up loading before the official content. ALL of it, including Update.esm. That's is very obviously wrong and cannot be fixed by users because they won't even know it's been messed up until it's way too late.

 

"Masters in the wrong order" is an entirely legitimate bug report that people SHOULD be reporting to mod authors too, because it carries the potential for your edits being reverted in strange ways and causes general incompatibilities all around.

It should be above the list of the official esm in the General section.

I meant to add these entries to the INI only.

My intention was not to show how [General] section in Skyrim.ini should look.

Next time I will be more detailed with descriptions. :P

No, the issue is that there was a considerable loss in sound quality. There have been articles about it, just search the net for Skyrim special edition sound (turns up tons of German articles for me and am too lazy to dig down to any language filters)

Thank you for this! Appears to work perfectly.

 

Also, you can add it to SkyrimCustom.ini instead and avoid editing Skyrim.ini

Regarding the order of the DLCs, I was always under the impression that Hearthfires had been intended as original content.  The reason I have suspected this is that it lacks Update.esm as a master. The sawmills with the ability to let the player use them are in the stock game. Plus the fact that it was really inexpensive when compared to the other DLC.  It may very well be that Hearthfires content was not included in the base game simply due to timing of the game's release.  Then they didn't want the first DLC released to appear to be something that by all appearances should have been in the game from the start. Furthermore, if the timestamps from Bethesda place Hearthfires before Dawnguard then it lends credence to Hearthfires having been made first.

 

The real bug would then be the INI entry where the BSAs are listed. That entry simply had the next BSA added as its DLC was released.

 

At any rate, couldn't USSEP avoid the load order bug by adding itself to the INI file as sTestFile6 and thus remain an ESM?

HF was the product of the Game Jam session that took place shortly after the game's release. It's lack of Update.esm doesn't prove anything, nor does it's use of stock assets. There is no reason to suspect they intended the load order to be this way all along.

 

INI tricks are not a valid solution to this either because they won't apply to consoles and most PC players won't bother with them either.

 

This isn't an issue of timestamps, because the files on your drive get timestamped in the order they're downloaded from Steam. Dawnguard.esm is the first one that comes down after Skyrim.esm and Update.esm.

 

Plus people seem to be oddly leaving out that this load order bug is pushing user generated esm files above ALL of the official files except Skyrim.esm and that's objectively wrong.

You're welcome.

I do not use the **Custom.ini in Beth games.

But it's good advice for all people who use. -> I can not guarantee that it will work the same way, simply because I did not test it that way.

 

Also I do not use none of Beth ****Launcher.exe (beyond the initial game(s) start-up) erased it from all game(s) directory so I am not afraid to reset my INI and I do not run Beth games through STEAM.

Before anyone starts to spread any accusation, ask ourselves how FOSE, NVSE, F4SE or SKSE does the same if STEAM run in background.  :innocent:

If you don't want to be wrongly accused you should be clear with what you do. Because anybody pretending he doesn't run the games with steam should be banned immediately.

Also custom is just for that. You can do in custom anything you can do in all the others ini, and custom will never be touched by steam updates. So there is no reason to try and circumvent how steam handles your game updates.

 

You still have to control when updates happen by running steam in offline mode so you don't loose xSE functionality and always backup the game right after it got updated though.

I have around of 150 GB of archive only for Fallout4 vanilla versions so far.

I do not run Beth games through STEAM but STEAM must be running in the background otherwise it does not work. (to bypass all *Launcher.exe for Beth games)

 

I started doing it on a laptop with two graphics cards, because dumb *Luncher.exe can not detect another graphics card beyond that which is in the CPU.

 

All Script Extender (FOSE,NVSE,F4SE,SKSE) versions work same. (bypass *Launcher.exe)

 

You still have to control when updates happen......

I have the entire partitions allocated for this purpose (500GB for all Beth games)

 

 

....and custom will never be touched by steam updates....

 

Also

%USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition\Skyrim.ini

%USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Skyrim Special Edition\SkyrimPrefs.ini

they are not modified in any way by STEAM but only by SkyrimSELauncher.exe

So when I bypass *Launcher.exe I have no problems with reset my INI(s)

I have yet to have the SE Launcher reset anything in my ini except when the beta patch kicked over and it dropped my shadow settings without asking. Simply starting the game with it hasn't done that though.

Because you do not have a laptop with two graphics cards Intel and Nvidia (Optimus)

 

In my case Launcher resets the graphics card to that from CPU Every Time It Is Running It is at least annoying.

So I got rid of that trash. (*Launcher.exe)

You can normally go to the nVidia control panel and force a specific exe to run on the GPU or on the intel integrated graphics...  :huh:

I tried that.

I even set steam.exe, SkyrimSE.exe and SkyrimSELauncher.exe to run by nVidia GPU in nVidia Control Panel and still the same Launcher(s) reset to GPU from CPU.

The only thing that helps in my case is to get rid of *Launcher.exe.
