; Info: Crash when trying to do: v14 = MagicItem::unk_406C70(a3, result)->properties.projectile;
; Function may return NULL and other places that call this function check for NULL return.
; Address: 7E39EC
; Solution: Check for NULL and skip if it is.
I've reported the 7E39EC address some time ago and Meh321 incorporated a workaround for the error, I had thought this wasn't of any use to the author, since everyone's load order can be very different and might not help anyone, I was proven wrong. It turned out that the error can be present in a few cases, the fix he made is genuine, I think the crash was caused by Requiem's magic or possibly some ability from Imperious race mod, since I do not run any other magic altering overhauls.
Under some circumstances during combat I would crash due to this error.
With only this applied and nothing else, I can run around Skyrim indefinitely for 20min+ in UGrids 5 and other .ini settings at S.T.E.P recommended defaults.
I have disabled other settings from Crash Fixes to test if crashes may happen under any other circumstances and so far my load order of 170+ mods is 99% crash free since applying this one setting. With the combination of tweaking Enhanced Blood Textures (notorious for crashes) and replacing a combat overhaul with something less stressful.
I don't think this plugin would have fixed the CTD's I had say one or two years ago. So even if it was available in it's current state, it probably wouldn't have helped me since there were so many variables that were making the game engine unstable.
When I stumbled upon Crash Fixes on the site that would not be named, I was intrigued, and it seemed similar to what a stability mod for FO:NV does. The author seems to know what he is doing, his test methods are called unorthodox here, I do agree, but in the end there doesn't seem to be any concrete evidence that Meh321's causes anything to go wrong with save games at the moment.
Warning, ramble below:
I must stress that, rarely do I ever appear to report any issues since nobody would learn anything from my particular experience, since my Skyrim setup is very specific to my OS, hardware and load order configuration.
My only 2 threads that I have created have resolved themselves by essentially changing everything since I upgraded my system. It was for the better, which I am quite happy with after losing so much faith with modding in general, in the past 4 years I had many failures to face but not without a bright side to it.
