You checked the box under the settings right?

Go to Steam > Settings > In-Game and check the box marked "Enable Steam Community In-Game".

 

You also copied the three files as well as the data folder into the oblivion folder right?  If yes to all of that, try running the obse_loader.exe and see if that gets things to work.

I did all that. When I try running obse_loader.exe, it responds by saying:

 

"You are trying to use a Steam version of Oblivion. Steam users should launch the game through Steam, not by running obse_loader.exe. If OBSE fails to load, go to Steam > Settings > In-Game and check the box marked "Enable Steam Community In-Game". Please see the instructions in obse_readme.txt for more information."

 

I also had read obse_readme.txt, but it didnt help.

Try deleting all of the folders and files located here:  My Documents/My Games/Oblivion

The run the game from the steam oblivion play button.  You may have to do this twice.

If that doesn't work, then I have some more questions.  Where is steam installed?  If it is in the default location (program files) then UAC is probably fucking your shit up.  Steam should not be installed there.  I recommend moving it as soon as you can.  Yes, you can move the whole thing without having to redownload all your games.  Holler if this is the case and I'll point you towards instructions to do this.

 

Also, make sure you are running steam with administrator privileges.

So, by "everything", you mean:

  • Saves folder
  • Bashloadorders.dat
  • Bashloadorders.dat.bak
  • Bashsettings.dat
  • Bashsettings.dat.bak
  • blendsettings.ini
  • Oblivion.ini
  • Oblivion.ini.baked
  • Oblivion.ini.base
  • RendererInfo.txt
  • WyreBashTemp.html

Did I get that right? Just trying to make sure.

My installation of Oblivion is located at D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Oblivion

Before you try that, can you run oblivion through Wyre?  If that still doesn't get obse to work, then yes, move "everything" (including saved games, folders and all files out of the my games oblivion folder (move them to a temp folder that you can create in that directory).  Then run the game through the steam and it will repopulate those files.  Start a new game.  If that works, then we can work on getting wyre bash back working.

Wyre gave me an application error when I tried launching oblivion through it. I can't do it through Wyre I guess.

 

So, what do you mean by moving them to a temp folder? I'm not sure where the temporary folder should be put. I'm a bit too cautious when it comes to these things.

 

Edit: I cut and pasted them into a new folder called Documents\Muh Games

Edit 2: Reread what you said and moved them into yet another new folder called Documents\My Games\The Erder Scrohrs 4 Obrivion

Under your my documents folder just create a folder that you name zTemp (or something like that) and move everything that is in the my documents oblivion folder into the temp folder that you created.  Then run the game through steam.

If i just made a new folder in Documents\My Games, and put them into it, that would work too, right?

Sure.  Create the temp folder where ever it is convenient for you.

I'm not getting a popup anymore. Thanks.

 

Edit: I closed out of oblivion, repopened it, and I'm getting it again.

But everything has already been said in the posts above.

 

In your anti virus program set  the whole Oblivion folder to the Exception list. Often anti virus programs block some Oblivion dll

I don't have an antivirus program, and I can launch oblivion. OBSE just isnt working.

 

I've tried the stuff on that thread already. I've enabled Steam Overlay as well. Also, the video is outdated.
