In preparation for the Skyrim Anniversary Edition, and the modpocalypse that is expected to be released, I reduced my mod load to a respectable few.Necessities like this Alternative start-live another life And some additional followers, including Inigo with LucienI started a new game and everything was fine until I quit to do some actual work, and then tried to reload the game during my lunch break. Black screen, music is still playing, this is what I got.
The usual Skyrim trick—switching to full-screen borderless mode and running Windows 7 as an administrator. Compatibility—does not seem to help, and then I found one Post from modder Joseph Russell, The creator of Lucien, he has found the cause of the problem. It turns out that other players also experienced the same crash, because the latest version of Skyrim runs scripts faster than before. This can cause problems with mods that rely on them, such as Russell’s.
Regardless of whether you have purchased the Anniversary Edition or not, your Skyrim Special Edition version has been automatically updated to use the new compiler Visual Studio 2019 instead of Visual Studio 2015. This seems to make it a bit too efficient.
As Russell explained, the problem “comes from my patchless interactive system, which checks the player’s mod when the player loads the game and fills in aliases with NPCs from other mods (such as Inigo).” The script of this system searches for esp files -Mods with plug-ins to add or modify world content-run faster than before. “This means that when the player loads the game, Inigo’s esp is detected,” Russell explained, “so the game tries to get his reference to put in the alias. However, because the script runs so fast, Inigo’s reference does not have time Loaded, so the script tried to fill the alias with NULL, which caused a crash.”
Russell fixed it by updating his mod, adding a three-second delay to the script, but if you encounter the same problem-even Players on Xbox are experiencing——This may be caused by a large number of other scripted modules. I temporarily disabled the ability to add followers, and everything is working fine. Currently.
