Hey! was attempting to follow this guide as it seemed like a fun way to give New Vegas another try, but I ran into a bit of an issue pretty early on: although I can run Merge Patches just fine by itself, whenever I attempt to run it through Mod Organizer it causes an access violation and will not properly load. I've done some web searching and used whatever fixes I can find as this is apparently not something that has only happened to me, but none of them have been successful.
Therefore, I'm needing to know if:
A) I can just skip all the instructions for merging patches,
B) Merging patches through xEdit would be sufficient, and if so where a good guide for that is, or
C) If there is any way I can merge using Merge Patches standalone running by itself and then import the result into Mod Organizer after the fact.
Thanks in advance and have a great day!
