I am going to be using MO as a mod manager for this discussion because it is what is accepted on this site.
dummy esps is a term used for a black esp that has only one job and that is to load a .bsa.
how this works is a blank plugins like [color=#00ff00;]Brawl Bugs CE.esp[/color] will only load[color=#00ff00;] Brawl Bugs CE.bsa.[/color]
Without the esp, the .bsa will not get loaded unless you are using MO and have the correct settings.
[color=#00ff00;]Hothtrooper44_Armor_Ecksstra.esp[/color] I believe is the esp that loads the resources for the actual armors and is blank.
If you happen to load up [color=#00ff00;]Step Combined PluginHF.esp[/color] and the plugins below then you should see that all of records from the list below should be present in [color=rgb(0,255,0);]Step Combined PluginHF.esp.[/color]
- SMIM-FurnitureChestSnowFix.esp- SMIM-DragonbornTernFix.esp- SMIM-DungeonsCliffsIceSkirts.esp- SMIM-ShackRoofFixes.esp- SMIM-ShackRoofFixesDragonborn.esp- Slightly Reduced Distance NPC Greetings.esp- dD-No Spinning Death Animation.esp
The STEP patch is something that you should be using because like I have said it does most of the conflict resolution between ALL of the STEP mods for you.
[color=#ffa500;]Remember:[/color] Not everything need to be patched.
I'll show you pics soon on the whole
Edit: I created a TES5Edit Merged patch. [color=#00ff00;]How do I know patches are in there?[/color]
Edit: Still having a hard time with this. I have a batched patch and a TES5Edit merged patch and the STEP Combined PluginHF patch.
[color=#00ff00;]How do I know what they are patching so I can uncheck the ESPs?[/color]
And how do I create merged patches for AOS, Compendium, CoT? I honestly don't understand even after watching both videos and looking for tutorials online.
This is only really a problem because STEP uses only AOS so the patch carries edits from only AOS rather than the ones from the correct esp.
You have AOS, Compendium, CoT sounds and whatnot. I might be able to put something together.
Some records are going to be from
Are you merging or patching because they are two different things.
But as far as the patching stuff goes, I'm confused. At this point, I'd pay someone to clean everything up for me because I really just want to play the game.
This will take a little while because you didn't precisely follow step. I can kinda walk you through it but like I said, it does take time to learn this stuff.
I fixed the sound issue, which was just something stupid I did. I had a follower and I was hearing them sheath and unsheath their weapon. Still can't access the Favorites Menu on SkyUI or unequip a torch.
Does skyUI load up correctly?
If not take a look inside the mod folder in MO and see if the files are there.
Sometimes mo will freakout and only have a 1KB file under the name of the plugin file
There are multiple things going on all at once. I don't really know that to go after first.Go to the full post
