I want to cry ..... or laugh ... or both
I'll settle for 🤣 🤣
More seriously, I hate to think how many hours I have actually spent trying to make those work properly .....
The chains actually did work, rather well too, at one point when this mod was in its early incarnations, and I have no certain idea why that changed. I still think that there is probably something in my usual load order, and inherent in some follower mods, that screws them up - the Heretic's Havok test cell seems to be bugged too, even with his ersatz test subjects.
There is something deep in the bowels of the game that can prevent the target being properly 'paralysed' on, or before. the Heretical scripts kick in, often creating the same sort of weird effects NPCs demonstrate when alchemical effects are used on them - you can find examples all over the web, floating dead bodies, 'mid air comatose moonwalking' etc - something which no one has ever really sussed out properly, and fixed
If I ever do work out what it is, I'll let you know
EDIT. Nearly forgot my manners. Thank you very much for looking. and replying!
