MO Won't run SKSE

skse troubleshooting

Best Answer JonasB , 15 February 2015 - 01:14 PM

...huh. So apparently moving Steam out of the program files just solved it. MO runs skse just fine now.

I followed the instructions in https://wiki.step-pr...Script_Extender and the video there to install SKSE.

 

Edit: is there any way to pure SKSE from my MO executables dropdown and start again? I ask because even after uninstalling SKSE from the mod list I cannot actually get it to vanish from the dropdown.

Delete the *.exe and *.dll from your actual Skyrim directory. Those should be:

 

skse_1_9_32.dll

skse_loader.exe

skse_steam_loader.dll

Thanks. Anyway, reinstalled SKSE again and it's still going to the loader. SKSE is selected on the dropdown and that section is linked to skse_loader.exe, yet when I click the Run button it loads the vanilla skyrim launcher. However, if I go to the skyrim folder myself and click the skse_loader.exe then it loads skse properly. 

 

My current theory is that for whatever reason MO is /not/ in fact running skse_loader.exe when I click the Run button but is in fact trying to run vanilla skyrim/the launcher. I don't know how to test for this though. My executables dropdown currently has Skyrim, Skyrim Loader, and SKSE in it. Is there any way to remove skyrim and the loader from the dropdown to eliminate any confusion that may be occuring?

Paste a link to Pastebin, or here in 

[spoiler]text[/spoiler]

 tags, your ModOrganizer.ini.

 

In that file is the settings to ALL the executables.

 

EDIT:

When you say, "the command did nothing". Are you referring to the command in the console?

In MO on the upper left side, click on the COGS button, it should bring up list on your MO executables. Click on SKSE, then at the binary "..." and navigate to your Skyrim folder and select "skse_loader.exe". Check the box for "Close MO when started". Finally click "modify". Then on the right side from the drop down menu select SKSE and click the run button.  MO should close, a small window should open, and finally Skyrim should start.

I'm referring to the console command, yes. It said something like an answer for the command could not be found or something.

I am curious as to why you think SKSE is not working? Using skse_loader.exe only shows a quick cmd window before Skyrim starts. Since you reinstalled new, you do not have any plugins using SKSE. Nagivate to your "\Users\{your user name here}\My Documents\My Games\Skyrim" folder. If SKSE is working, a SKSE directory should exist that contains all your SKSE log files. They get updated anytime you start Skyrim with SKSE.


Here is an example of the skse_loader.log file

SKSE works fine. If I click on the loader itself from the folder then it'll run perfectly. The problem is that for whatever reason, the Mod Organizer will not run SKSE properly. When I click run, the following happens:

 

- A command window for the skse loader appears then immediately closes.

- The vanilla launcher opens

- If I go to skyrim from the vanilla launcher then skse will not run and I get an error message from skyUI. Now that skyUI is running through the organizer though, I just don't get any mods active whatsoever.

 

Here's my skse loader log too:

Did you try disabling your Antivirus?

Did you rename your existing ModOrganizer.ini and let MO generate a new one? That ini doesn't look like a vanilla one.

If all the executables are configured correctly, MO will automatically find and use them with no need to change any settings at all. This will give you an ini like this one:

 
Notice the SKSE setting has no path to binary set as MO just uses the defaults. This works in all instances that these executables are installed correctly.
 
I'm also curious about that SteamAppID. Are you using some form of steam_appid.txt to get around using the launcher?
I can see no reason why you will need to use that method if you are. Simply delete that file and let Skyrim start as it needs to.
Remember Steam doesn't need to check your game for mods installed anymore so there is no need to have it online either. Try it offline and see if there is anything you miss.

Try this:

 

Copy Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini from the Documents folder (Documents/My Games/Skyrim) and paste them into your Mod Organizer's profile folder (Steam/SteamApps/common/Skyrim/Mod Organizer/profiles/<Name of profile you are using>/ - overwrite when asked.

- If I go to skyrim from the vanilla launcher then skse will not run and I get an error message from skyUI. Now that skyUI is running through the organizer though, I just don't get any mods active whatsoever.

 

Here's my skse loader log too:

 

 

Based on your log SKSE is starting steam correctly. Navigate to your "MO\mods\[Skyrim Script Extender}" folder, this is where you installed you SKSE Data folder. If done currently, should see a "scripts" folder, "meta.ini", and a "SKSE" folder. Note the the SKSE archive does not have a "SKSE" folder, this is something you have to create and it contains the "SKSE.ini" which you also have to create yourself. As stated by monkeycid, the Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini are stored in "MO\profiles\{name of your profile}". When using MO, the first thing to do is create a new profile. This will automatically copy the INI files into your new profile. Call the name profile whatever you want. After you created your profile, select the Default profile and click REMOVE and YES when ask. The name profile will have all your mods in the left pane and may need to be activated by checking the box to the left and sorting them into proper order by dragging.

 

If you have done all of the above, based on your log file, you may not be properly installing mods using MO. To verify you installed SkyUI correctly, navigate to "MO\mods\SkyUI". You should see the following:

 

interface folder

scripts folder

meta.ini

Readme - SkyUI.txt

SkyUI.esp

 

If the Readme file isn't showing *.txt, your are hiding known file extensions, and it is likely you created a SKSE.ini.txt instead of SKSE.ini when you created that file. Hope it helps.

Danimal: My SkyUI folder in MO has the following: meta.ini, the readme, the bsa, and the esp. I installed SkyUI by downloading it from nexus and double clicking it in the downloads section of MO and then clicking Ok.

 

GrantSP: I don't remember whether the binary line just came like that or if I did something to set it in the past. The steamapp ID is actually the same as the default one MO is using, but I put it in anyway in an attempt at earlier problem solving. I am also not doing anything to 'get around the launcher'. What I said about using skse directly from the skyrim folder was merely something I did to confirm that skse itself was working fine. My problem is still that MO keeps trying to run the skyrim launcher instead. I'm also getting kind of confused now. I'd really appreciate if you could tell me what I should do in a step by step manner (1, 2, 3, etc.) if only for my own peace of mind.

For step by step instructions follow this guide for Skyrim Revisited: Legendary Edition. It will take you through configuring MO, creating your first profile, etc. Instead of using 'Skyrim Revisited' as the profile name consider, using 'Skyrim Base Install'. Follow the guide carefully up until the creating the 'The Dovahkiin Comes' section. You can skip the ENB section, but you may want ENBoost. Once you have completed the install through creating the 'The Dovahkiin Comes' section, copy the 'Skyrim Base Install' creating a new profile (for example STEP, SRLE, or whatever you want) to build upon. Everytime, you want a different profile copy the 'Skyrim Base Install' as your starting point.

No offense but... that sounds like far more confusing than what I need. I just want some clear advice since I'm getting multiple people suggesting different things and I don't know how much overlaps with what. So far I have renamed/generated a new MO .ini file, I have created an SKSE folder and SKSE.ini in the relevant place, and have made a new profile on MO and it still keeps going to the vanilla skyrim launcher.
