I don't use it, but others have. Deactivating it may not be enough or fix it. try what this person did:

Edit I fixed it, just went to FNIS sexy move and chose the player 360 move and then unchose that and it worked

Hey,

 

That worked, but only for my char, the NPC's females still wallking tied's

 

 

 

Thanks a lot

In ZAZ8.0 it is said that the "use bound animations" setting should be disabled when a similar setting in DDi is enabled. Found under animation filters a setting about using bondage device, that says that it is incompatible with a similar one in ZAZ. I assume, that this setting is meant. Can anyone confirm that this is right?

 

Can someone tell me, if there are different results depending in which mod I have enabled it? Is there any recommendation which is the better choice?

 

Maybe this question was already answered somewhere her in the LAST 100+ Pages. Unfortunately a search didn't bring up a satisfying result. So if this was already answered, a link to related postings would be fine.

 

Thanks in advance!

Did you see leesjig's response to your earlier question? Try traveling around a bit.

Hey everyone,

i downloaded this mod a while ago and figured pretty much out on my own. My problem right now is that if i want do use a Tail Plug it dosent appear, DD shows the usual message if you want t put it in and stuff but norhing else happens. I noticed the same problem with S.L.U.T.S and would like to know if you guys got a similar problem? Im curious what the roblem is because everything else is working fine.

 

YojimboRatchet is right. Tails are HDT (both pony and chain), so if you don't have HDT installed and working things will be stiff or fall to/through the floor, cause CTDs or other weirdness.

 

No HDT, it's under the floor:

Yes, you need to pick one filter for the bound animations. There's no significant difference as far as i'm aware. It's just that they both do the same thing, which could break things.

I stick with DD's animation filter since I don't like any of the animations listed in zaz. they've been very unaligned for me. DD's animations are based on billyy's bound animations and have worked better for me.

 

But it's up to you and your preference. Try them both out, just do it one at a time.

So each of the mod settings does basically the same, but the animations are different. Interesting - didn't know that DDI uses it's own animation. I thought, as ZAZ is a requirement for DDi it uses the ZAZ animations. Thanks for your reply - will try out both settings. But I think, I'll stay with those of DDi.

No, they don't need the virtual ground. Ankle chains should be working. They don't drag a lot on the ground, but should stretch between the legs as you walk. If they aren't working, they are in two stiff pieces attached at the ankle. The ankle chains will normally show as one piece if you save when wearing them, and then exit and reload the game. Until you do that, they will show as two pieces that stretch between the ankles when working.

 

If this is not what you're seeing, which ankle chains exactly?
You may need to make sure Zaz is not overwriting DD.

Hi Zarantha (again) !

 

Seems like I have too much free time now and I'm trying to solve my various SSE issues.

 

I have followed your advice above to make the ankle chain work as they should (your pics prove it). But even saving and reloading the game did not help, still in two seperate rigid parts.

 

Does it require something more, like a fix or patch ?

 

EDIT : I already have latest HDT-SMP from nexus installed (2.11) and also the collection of patches you linked some posts above.

The zaz requirement has been removed from DD in 4.0. Unless you have mods requiring zaz, it's not needed.

If they're rigid, either something is wrong with either your HDT SMP install, or you've got something overwriting the chain nifs or xmls.

If HDT is working, the chains will move even when broken. They won't be one piece unless HDT is working and you restart the game.

 

If you have zaz, make sure DD is overwriting zaz.

The new patches should also be overwriting zaz.

 

Both DD and the patches ankle chain nifs point to this file in the path below. Without this file, physics won't work.

\Meshes\ZaZ-UltimateDataPack\ZaZ - HDT\ZaZAnkleChainsRagDolls.xml

 

Do you have that file? If not, reinstall DD and/or the patches.

 

Is HDT working for your body and/or other HDT SMP mods?

 

Edit: I'll make a note to fix where the DD nif is pointing to next time DD is updated. It's not as big a deal with the patches, because I do include the file in that path already.

I think I made some progress. But first I checked your previous post and yes, DD is overwriting ZAZ, I have it reinstalled lately and many (all?) other features of HDT SMP work fine on my character and items.

 

I discovered this:

When using items named FETTERS, things work fine after reloading a save game.

When using the item named ANKLE CHAINS [EDITED], things do not work, the chain looks rigid in two separate parts.

 

Could it be that Ankle chains use another mesh or are loaded from another mod (DCL) ?

DDi 4.0 changelog:

 

I have the lates version of DDi installed, but have overseen this hint. But I still need ZAZ for some other mods. Must check, if they still work when disabling the bound animations in ZAZ. However, thanks for your hints. Made me a bit wiser now.

all i need is DDi that works with SE,  was hoping this FOMOD might fix that

don't use the links in the thread, download it from the download page linked in the first post. that is the most up to date version.

I don't have anything named 'ankle cuff'.

 

I did find that ankle chains, obsidian ankle chains, and sasha's ankle chains were not working. And apparently I  had a copy / paste error at some point. The mesh has the PE xml info in it, not the SMP. But since fixing that part didn't resolve the issue with those, i'll look at it some more.

 

Edit - way too late at night. Just realized my test models weren't overwriting DCL.

Updated my patches, try this. It should overwrite zaz, dd, dcl.

Thanks a lot, this last version of the combined patches did work (after save/reload). I think it was indeed an item added by DCL. And sorry about my mistake, the item is indeed named ankle chains.

I have the problem that some female NPC's walk around as if they had their hands tied behind their back or were carrying a yoke. I noticed this especially with NPC's that were added by a mod. Specifically with the mod Immersive Wenches. Whether it only occurs with NPC's from this mod I can't say now, because I haven't walked around much since I installed DD. Has anyone else had such problems and knows how to fix them?

Strange those chains work only if:

1) put on

2) Save

3) Exit to windows

4) Start skyrim se and load)

 

 

Strange yes. I have no explanation. Based on what I've learned about SMP, they shouldn't work at all - just like the wrist chains don't work. :)

I'm not going to think too deeply about it though.

Great, and yes, I'm pretty sure it's the just ones in DCL. That's where I saw the broken ones too, which means I messed up my conversion too. Too many file versions floating around >.<

Oh well. I"m not redoing it at this point. But now I know which files I want when DCL 9 comes out.

with the mod Immersive Wenches.

I can only guess:

1) Those NPC uses special animation to walk with cups what conflicts with DD and DD replaces this animation by own tied up animation.

2) Maybe those NPC spawn with invisible part of dd item on: in console check NPC inventory and see if there not some items from dd.

3) After install you forgot build FNIS - because walking animation with cups not installed and Skyrim uses random animation from DD.

First of all thank you very much for the answer.

To 1) I took a look into the files of Immersive Wenches and it looks like the mod doesn't contain any own animations.

To 2) No, they don't have invisible devices in their inventory.

To 3) I have run FNIS after installing DD and I don't know if I have any animations installed that include cup walking animations.

Before I installed DD, all female NPCs used the walking animations from FINIS sexy Move and the from Immersive Wenches too.

I can't confirm this bug - i install Immersive Wenches then FINIS sexy Move

And no bug - after install FINIS sexy Move you rebuild FNIS? No errors?

Also you install SE version of those mods?

 

You can try uninstall and delete archive (Vortex) FINIS sexy Move - rebuild fnis - run the game and see NPC - have bug?

After if not - reinstall FINIS sexy Move - rebuild fnis - check bug.

 

Also i heard (5% chance if i remember right) - FNIS sexy move have conflict with dd - after this maybe dd struggle animations is damaged - i forgot to test it....

 

Edited: i found only that bug and invisible cups in arms:

If you're having trouble with DD walking animations and have FNIS Sexy Move installed, try resetting the animations in SM's mcm. I think others have resolved this by toggling the player 360 walk. The NPC should be fixed when you change locations.

I guess I need to add this to my troubleshooting list. >.<

The entire mechanic probably needs review, but that isn't practical until after the bigger DD problems are solved.

 

If people aren't following this:

  • DF uses the DD library to fit items.
  • That library has serious flaws, even if used carefully.
  • The library bugs are impacting dozens of mods, not just DF.
  • The DD library calls need to be replaced with custom code to work around the DD bugs.
  • DD will not fix those bugs, or at least it seems quite unlikely at this time.
  • I cannot fix the problem for every other mod, but I can at least reduce the problem for devices DF adds.
  • I want to minimize new device functionality until this and the LDC are overhauled.

 

 

i was reading this from another thread going on, which seems to be escalating a bit, since i am reading more and more comments about DD library issues with other mods. i know i read a post from Kimy somewhere about how there is so much older code that needs to be seriously cleaned up, but for whatever reasons, it isn't a priority compared to new functionality on upcoming versions.

 

i am getting a big concerned by what i am reading, especially this one post, because maybe these older code issues need to be updated before any new functionality for future versions be implemented, because these would also have the same flaws and compatibility issues with other mods and create even more frustrations, would it not ?

 

this is what i am worried about the most, that last line about minimizing functionality with DD. if this starts to happen, and other mods / modders start doing the same things, then this will seriously impact DD as well as the gaming experience from the ones using these mods, which would not be the ideal result anyone wants, is it ?

 

i really like DD and many of the mods here, and i do not want to see this happen. i'd love for the modders to work together to bring the most enjoyable experience possible for the gamers, and not see comments like these becoming more frequent, causing strife in the community. kinda sucks.

 

so not sure what's going on, but maybe cleaning up the code might be the best option for now , maybe ?

Kimy might change her specific position on that, but I am not the person to ask about it.

 

She said that fixing the existing functions would break old behaviors, which is true.

 

I suggested that the obvious answer was to add new functions and deprecate the old ones.

She didn't say anything about that point as far as I know. She might do it, or she might not.

 

My assumption is that she will not, and I'll go with that until she publishes new code where it's done - which might be indefinitely.

 

In the meantime it's perfectly possible to replace those functions in a consumer mod.

You can't get access to the mutex from outside, but that doesn't really work anyway so I don't see it as a big drawback.

I would have liked that to be C++ native, and if I do it, it will be.

 

One of the big "problem" functions is the C++ search function, which she is possibly loathe to touch, but I don't see any problems with writing a new one that has the required functionality, or simply not using C++ there.

 

If I do as I plan (and I have immediate things I want to do on DF first) then I hope that will make device adds more reliable for DF, but not for any other mods (though I don't care if they cut+paste my code). Of course, there may be other issues that mean it only makes a trivial difference. I guess we'll see.

 

 

Kimy has DCL to work on, and new DD features to add, and the world hasn't ended with this stuff as wonky as it is, so she may not see it as a priority, and I wouldn't have the slightest issue with that if there wasn't so much other baggage mixed up in this.
