HELLO AND WELCOME TO THE SKYRIM SUPPORT AREA!!!
PLEASE NOTE NO SUPPORT IS GIVEN FOR CRACKED OR ILLEGAL VERSIONS OF THE GAME! THIS INCLUDES GAMES NOT INSIDE THE STEAM DIRECTORY.
If you're having problems with mods to do with Skyrim and need help figuring them out, we're more than willing.
HOWEVER, there is basic information we always need to know before we can even begin.
It's getting a little tiresome repeating the same steps over and over to everyone that asks,
so I'm just going to put a list here of steps to follow and then sticky this thread.
READ BEFORE OPENING A THREAD FOR SUPPORT:
1. Check your load order! Make sure that it is correct by checking it with BOSS and verifying what requirements and dependencies each of your mods has.
2. If you are crashing at start up then you likely skipped the above step. If so go back to number 1. If not then you need to check all your plugins to make sure you have all required mods and utilities that those plugins require. The best way to do so is look at the OP for each mod you have installed.
3. Look at your Papyrus.log to see what errors it has in it. You can often figure out in very short order what mod the errors are coming from and then disable that mod until you install the fix for it (assuming the author has made one).
If you cannot find your Papyrus log you have most likely not got Papyrus logging enabled. To enable it go to My Documents > My Games > Skyrim > skyrim.ini and change the following lines so they are like below
[Papyrus] bEnableLogging=1 bEnableTrace=1 bLoadDebugInformation=1
4. Lastly before opening a thread in the Skyrim technical support section please take a minute to browse the support section for
a couple of pages to see if your question has already been asked & answered. Another effective way to search for things is to type "Lovers Lab" (then your topic/item/mod) into google and hit search.
If you completed the above and still have problems, then please proceed to open a thread and include the below information:
A. Describe your problem: Are you crashing at start up? Do you have errors on your screen? Are animations not working?
Fully describe the problem you are having but try to do so without writing a book please.
B. Post your Load Order! Seriously, most problems can be resolved at a glance from one of our forums many guru's, so do everyone
a favor and include this in your first post.
To get your load order with Wyre Smash (Skyrim): Just right click anyway in the middle section of the program, select list mods, a new window will open, copy it and paste it here.
NOTE: Use the spoiler code when posting load orders!!!! (see bottom of post for spoiler code)
C. Post your utilities and their versions. Examples: SKSE version, FNIS version.
Again some mods require certain utilities, and further still certain versions of those utilities.
D. Upload a copy of your Papyrus log unedited to your opening post.
E. Lastly, but of no less importance is include your Papyrus.log file(s). Post it as an attachment after zipping it up with WinRaR, WinZip, or 7zip. We can often find the problem in the Papyrus.log
