Problem with installing STEP Core - SKSE won't load?

skse installation step core enb

Best Answer Nozzer66 , 06 December 2016 - 09:01 PM

Firstly, did you actually download and apply an ENB Preset? If you're just using ENBoost and don't intend to use a preset, then that warning in red is fine and expected.

 

If you are using a preset then you need to find in the ENBseries.ini file the following setting under the GLOBAL header: UseEffect=false, and change that to true.

 

If you HAVE applied an ENB preset, then it is possible you've made an error as most ENB presets will come with their own customised ENBseries.ini file.

 

You'll also need to adjust the ENBlocal file to suggested settings for the ENB.

Hey, I was trying to do a STEP Core install on the latest version with my Steam version of Skyrim, but when I got to the step with booting up SKSE the game won't load, instead I get a full black screen with a little blank black window in the upper-left corner too. I apologize that I couldn't get a screenshot, PrintScreen doesn't do anything (Likely due to the related INI tweak) and F12 seems to show the game running:

It seems to mention stuff about ENB and I can hear the music playing but even when I wait, it still just stays at the black screen with black window in the upper-left for me.

 

I followed everything for doing a STEP Core install (Using Mod Organizer like instructed) with the only odd things being:

• I had to use the Program Files folder (but I've disabled UAC while I'm doing this so it seems to not be causing any issues).

• I was forced to install (and then promptly removed) a random mod under the "default" profile to get through the Mod Organizer tutorial.

• In MO it lists the three DLCs but not the HighResTexturePack things.

• When doing the INI Tweaks, I did NOT set bShowTutorials=0, I left it normal because this'll be the first time I properly play Skyrim (I've briefly tried it, but barely got past character creation due to hearing about "essential" mods on TV Tropes, which is what lead me to STEP).

• When setting up ENB I did the optional step with setting up ForceBorderless=true and ForceBorderlessFullscreen=true because I heard it would let me Alt+Tab normally.

• I set up SKSE following the GamePoets video because the wiki guide initially confused me with the remark on installation (that's resolved now).

 

My Mod Organizer setup looks like this (was afraid to use LOOT at this point in case sorting would cause new issues):

 

These are the contents of enblocal.ini:

 

Here are the contents of skse.ini:

 
And here's how the SKSE folder setup came out:
 
Thanks in advance and if there are any other details needed, by all means ask, I'm not entirely certain what would and wouldn't be relevant for all this.

Disable Steam Overlay and see if that helps. Also, make sure you aren't running any other overlays from graphic card programs like MSI Afterburner.

Disabling Steam Overlay doesn't seem to have helped, but I'm still getting a little green bar with "Press Win+G to open Game Bar", does that mean there's another Overlay?

That is another annoying Windows "extra" called XBox app. You can delete it via the control panel.

Okay, I couldn't find the option in Control Panel but I tried disabling it in regedit as advised here: https://support.stea...ZCB-8600#appreg and I don't see the green bar mentioned but it's still stuck on the black screen with the black window in the corner.

Just as a quick note (sorry for double-posting but I can't see an edit option), I took a quick phone picture of how it looks when booted up:

Please forgive the bad quality and reflection.

Okay, I think I managed to make it start! On a whim I set ForceBorderless=false and ForceBorderlessFullscreen=false and after I did it managed to boot up! I could even start a new game and re-enable the Steam Overlay for screenshotting.

 

...I did that because it seems like ENB is having some kind of problem, though SKSE is running (had some concerns that the SKSE folder layout was wrong but it seems to be running as suggested):

I'm unsure about progressing with STEP while things are malfunctioning.

That's just a setup issue. Most likely is that you have UseEffect set to false so that just turns ENBoost on by itself.

Hmmm, Input in enblocal has KeyUseEffect=123 but I don't see just a UseEffect in there or the main INIs, what should I tweak/add?

Alright, I haven't used the Presets since I'm sticking with Core, so thank you for letting me know! :)

I'll keep modding down the list, any other issues would probably need a new thread, I'd figure.
