I know it's probably a lot to ask and that you are busy with your new Mod Picker project, but for someone who actually knows what they are doing it shouldn't be too much of a hustle, I hope.
Tell me please, is it possible to update this guide for MO2 users?
It's obviously a great guide, possibly the best there is but in attempt to follow it precisely I am facing the wall now, because the guide requires the steps I am unable to make.
I had about 15 tabs opened in my browser yesterday just from following it, trying to understand what am I downloading and why... I am drained and exhausted and being redirected like a ping pong from one information pool into another with my ADD has already become a nightmare.
I don't know if anyone is still using MO1, and if they do, they probably know their way around mods already. The new users like me (yes, we're still coming), naturally go for newest versions and it is us who are in dire need of your guidance. Please, add info for MO2, you'll be saving lives... probably...
I just recently discovered STEP Guides and even though STEP name was popping up on occasion, there was no (obvious) need. Now, I wish I discovered you sooner but I didn't.
After breaking my game several times, and switching from NMM to MO2, I managed to make it look nice with approximate 80% stability. And then I've learned more, saw more and decided to go for ENB, which lead me back to searching and reading and testing and I broke the game again, this time beyond repair. I tried to give up on ENB and return to my original set, but couldn't, the game looked like crap and worked accordingly and that's after re-moding it from scratch.
I finally found this guide, which seemed so perfect at that moment and now I am stuck practically at the start, with already a choice made by guessing instead of knowing because there was no info on a subject, and I don't know if my choice was right or wrong and what to do if I made a mistake...
I am currently on "Optimizing Bethezda Textures" phase.
I installed the first part of this mod (now deleted), it prompted me with a warning about BSA files and if I don't know what they are I should click NO... which I wanted to do, because regardless of my attempts to find consumable information on this, I still don't have a clue what they are and the guide isn't specific on this... but I extracted them because the guide works them later.
Now everything in the Archives shows .bsa and something is definitely wrong because I can't follow the guide any further. There is no "Unmanaged" anything in my order, except one empty Unmanaged Bashed File that sits there from the moment I installed Bash, along with other software I've never heard about until now (just following the guide and trying to understand as much as I can), the mods come with their names intact and there is nothing I can check or uncheck in the Archives because all of it is grey and untouchable...
