My issue arose after I completed the full S.T.E.P installation, without a hitch. I ran it immediately after installing and patching with the necessary files and ran it without incident. After that, I installed the mod 'Alternate Start'. This also ran without a hitch.
Unfortunately, this is where it went awry.
Seeing that everything was going according to plan, I decided to install a few mods that I personally enjoy.
- Immersive Armors by hothtrooper44
- Immersive Weapons by Ironman5000 and hothtrooper44
- More Dragon Loot
- Dr Bandolier's Bags and Pouces
- Unread Books Glow Mod by Duggelonian Studios
I ran BOSS, which told me there were no problems, and then I ran TES5Edit which told me there were errors with completely different mods. Naturally, I did the whole run-through (disable, reenable, uninstall, reinstall) with those other mods to see if they actually made a difference, but I still got the same black screen on start-up.
I hope I have given sufficient information and hopefully made the issue easier to solve.
Thanks in advance,
EDIT: Nevermind guys, I figured out the problem was a bad ENB installation! This post can be deleted. Thanks again!
