Black faces bug

Recommended Posts

@Khumak: (and anyone else whom found this subject matter interesting for them.)

I found this:




But it relies on Creation Kit's finesse which I don't have.


I discovered that the Diversity NPC Overhaul requires Apachii Hair which is no biggie since I no longer use the Seraphim textures' works which is the major reason why I have KS Haidos Lite. I going to try your suggestions first, before I make a dedicated time, ram space and risk taking  by fiddling around with my SSE's folder with my weak Creation Kit-Fu.


I will let you know the results of your suggestion even if its fails before trying anything else.

Minor correction to my previous post.  I had to stop using Tempered Skins for Males, it makes it so SOS Lite erections don't work but otherwise no changes.  You could probably put it before SOS but I think SOS would overwrite most of it's textures then.  I don't trust myself to use the creation kit without breaking things but people who know what they're doing might fix it with that.

I tried disabling stuff like ordinary women, bijin, etc but nothing of that worked. 
My install directory of the SSE is clean, i am using MO for this. 
Anyone got any idea why this happens? 



Hi just some info I gleaned for anyone else watching this post


When using Bijin AIO after installing the other Oldrim Bijin files you must deactivate their esp in NMM apart from AIO - Bijin does not work with Oldrim CBBE in SSE at the time of writing. Also with Bijin AIO you must have the unofficial patch.


I have a tutorial on YouTube


I also notice some folks are using Windsong Wico, load order is very important when using Bijin AIO or RS Children


See the instructions here on UNP Body Renewal when using Windsong Wico under the Recommended Mods section on the page

I use CBBE, Diversity, RS Children, all of the Bijin mods (SE version of Warmaidens, oldrim version of the others), and the Bijin AIO and they all work fine.  No dark face issues anywhere.  I also use the oldrim CBBE customizer for Sofia and that also works fine.  The newest version of USSEP does change facegen for a bunch of NPCs though so it causes the dark face issue with a lot of mods that have not been updated for the new USSEP.  I had to make my own patch for it.


I think the easiest way to do it is to go into SSEEDIT, filter for conflict losers, go to USSEP, and then copy each NPC to override as a new file.  Then you can drag and drop anything from your other mods into the override including all the facegen stuff from USSEP.  I was surprised how much stuff I had to do manually.  The autogenerated SSEEDIT merged patch will not do it for you.  The patch I ended up with resolves conflicts with all of the following and included a TON of NPCs:





Cutting Room Floor

Apachii Hair


RS Children

all of the Bijin mods

NPCs Protected Redux

Remodelled Armor

The Choice is Yours

I've haved this problem i success to fix it, i simply take a copy of the mod The Ordinary Women or the mod that you think is the problem but for me that this mod, opened it and delete all the file in the skyrim folder that they has the same name than the file of ordinary women, after that i've launched skyrim and bug was finally fixed!

sorry to necro this thread, but i also found a very simple solution which always worked on my computer and skyrim. occasionally i just didnt just had a black face, but a black body.


to make it short, not wanting to talk about the truckload of stuff i tried out, here is what worked: (seriously, just dont ask me why)

- shutdown your computer

- pull the power-plug so the computer has no meaning of getting power.

- press and hold the power-button for about 20 seconds, thats called a power-cycle.

after restarting the computer and skyrim, my face or body had its normal textures back.


a normal Restart didnt help, it had to be removing all the power, emptying all the capacitors or whatever, and that worked. it just worked right now again.

I'm also having the black face issue, but this only affects my character.  I've yet to encounter NPCs with the issue.
