Evening to all. This is my first post on the STEP Project. Please be gentle. After a brief discussion with Michael of Gamer Poets on his recent SKSE video of just a day or two ago, I felt better about posting this here. Briefly, I will say I've been having some CTD issues on a new save for a STEP install. I learned not to use Papyrus logging and caught in the GP video about the mini-dump ability. I generated a .dmp file and found a website to translate it to English (https://www.osronlin...fm?name=analyze), but as I asked Michael, how do I read this to help myself? I'd be happy to post on the general CTD post in regards to my CTD, but after searching the forum I didn't see anything about using the mini dumps one can enable on the SKSE ini, which is the purpose of this post. I hope I've followed the community guidelines by doing this. So..... Back to the question... if I can't read & use a dump file, then it's not worth much, so does anyone know how to read this thing? I need a decoder ring, man! A copy of my dump file is below. Any navigational assistance on where to go is appreciated. If someone also knows what the CTD problem is from this file... major bonus, though I would think there would me more to it than just this. Unfortunately, I am innately curious, so it gripes me I can't read this sucker. Also, suddenly it occurs to me now I have 2 problems instead of just the CTD. <sigh> I swear this modding stuff is like peeling an onion. <face-palm>
Dump file (it's long):
---- Edit ---- (2 days after original post)
Within this discussion, another person admonishes using the website above in a very generalist sense. He, nor I, levy suggestion or criticism regarding the credibility or reputation of this site; rather, the warning is based on nothing more than online privacy & security "best practices" with personal data... nothing more, nothing less. This individual offers an alternative link to download a debug tool to translate an SKSE dump file without needing to submit any data to an external party (a link from Microsoft no less). I do not want to alter my original post, but felt it important to point this out should anyone read this thread in the future. I have yet to use this alternative as I originally got the translated dump file directly above this edit from the website I mentioned earlier in this post.
