Yes, when using Lumen, I was careful to not use conflicting mods. (the mod site explicitly says Lumen and ELFX Enhancer, while it won't crash, are not intended to use together. )
After seeking some advice from someone who does lots of photography, I was informed that the white haze was caused by my monitor (incorrect brightness, gammacurve and contrast). After lowering the brightness and boosting the Gammacurve, I get very close to what the Lumen ENB should look like. So its not a case of an incorrect installation, but a case of incorrect display set up.
Shadows are close to what they should be, but the fire intensity is off during the day. Other than that, the contrast might be a little high for my liking, but its almost exactly like what the mod page screen shots show. Now its just a matter of me adjusting parameters to my liking.
Back to the previous CTD:
After looking at the Complete Crafting Overhaul Remade mod, under "Conflicts" area, I note the /scripts/mineorescript.pex is overwritten by Requiem. This means that CCO-Remade Requiem patch has problems that need to be solved. (Correction, I don't have a CCO-Remade Requiem patch... so that would explain that problem.)
I'll update my above installation notes to reflect the addition of my missing patches. I'm getting sooo close, I can feel it... Too bad Open Cities doesn't have some magical auto patcher so that it would be compatible with anything. Sigh...
I'm trying to find a follower mod that would be compatible with the set up, and have found 2 that seem to be reasonably current and have patches:
Both have Requiem patches, and interesting NPC's. Both allow you to retreat (ie set followers to not engage and suicide) and both let you set the combat type (front line, ranged, etc). Biggest pain I have with followers is their unquenchable thirst to run head long into the first bandit camp they find, which really sucks in early Requiem when you don't have a chance in hell of winning.
Does anyone here have experience with either of these (or other follower mods) and could lend some words of advice?
