I'm following the STEP 18.104.22.168 guide (I was in the middle of it when 2.10 came out, and have all the old mods). TexGen runs fine. I'm following the instructions here and my entire computer freezes midway into the step that says "Setting up 10890 cells with 1086 active cells for 4276 dynamic LOD objects for DynDOLOD -T". The whole computer freezes up, can't move mouse, clock doesn't update, can't do anything. After a little while my CPU fan slows down to idle. My only option is to hard shutdown.
One time I saw a couple folders in my DynDOLOD output folder, but with the latest attempt I see nothing. During my third attempt I started a 2-hour shutdown script beforehand to verify it's not just a graphical freeze. Left it over 12 hours and came back to the same screen.

Using DynDOLOD 2.26, Mod Organizer 1.3.11, Skyrim Legendary Edition, STEP Extended, Windows 10, AMD FX-8350 processor, 16 GB RAM.
Here's what I tried so far:
- output folder in newly created folder (outside MO) of separate HDD
- output folder in the root of the same SSD that DynDOLOD.exe is on
- tried setting DynDOLOD.exe's processor priority to Low
- tried disabling all mods that were merged into bashed patch (first time I enabled everything except BirdsHFclean.esp)
My next attempt I'm going to extract a fresh DynDOLOD Standalone, and disable the bashed patch. If that doesn't work I'm just gonna disable all but a couple mods to see if I can get different results. Any ideas?
