I have just finished installing all of STEP Extended and all was well in my world. However, I then set out on my own modding adventure away from my STEPparents and started by shopping for an ENB to use. In order to do this I need to reverse two of the STEP instructions for ENBoost:
With these two settings this way, ENBs do not work as the graphics injector is turned off. However upon reversing these values to false and true respectively to make ENBs work, the game now crashes constantly on loading a save game. I don't even get to see a loading screen, I press enter to load, enter again to confirm, and now I'm looking at my desktop.
Strangely, turning off DynDOLOD fixed the crash. Then I installed Alternate Start - Live Another Life to start a new character without having to coc or sit through the 20 minute intro, and I find more complications. DynDOLOD seems to now causing the game to crash anymore, but having both DynDOLOD and Alternate Start active simultaneously causes the game to crash on loading a save. Loading one or the other works, but both does not. Even so, with only one or the other active, upon activating a few more mods I'm back to crashing on load.
However if I set the two ENB settings quoted above to their STEP values of true and false, the game loads just fine. I cannot explain this. Obviously this is a problem as I cannot play Skyrim without an ENB, and one cannot play Skyrim with an ENB using those settings. It may or may not be relevant but I have an old 18.104.22.168 version of STEP laying around, and that works just fine with ENB active. Tips on how I can progress would be by me appreciated, thank you.
