Best ways to reduce/eliminate CTDs?
The only thing that annoys me more then lag in skyrim is ctds. You know, when you're battling an evil dragon priest and suddenly your game crashes to desktop and you're like "wtf". Anyways does anyone have some tips to easily reduce/eliminate CTDs?

-Install bug fix mods such as SafteyLoad & SSME

-Install Unoffical Patches as it will pad out the game further to make it more stable

- Follow directions when installing a mod and install any other mod that is required

-Don't install ENB's to rigs that can't handle it as it will lag and probably lead to a CTD

- run the game on low quality graphics on rigs that 'meets in the middle' sort of speak

- Use LOOT (DON'T USE BOSS)

- Don't play the game for so long

I also forgot to add:

-Don't install mods that can damage performance, if there is a mod that has a low performance version install that!

- Run game booster programs like "Razor Game Booster" or FRAPS or whatever game booster is popular and safest!

Best way to avoid CTDs is to follow this guide: http://www.reddit.com/r/skyrimmods/comments/27fc6y/super_epic_guide_if_you_are_relatively_new_here/

I can play literally all day with 150 mods and not get one CTD.

Guides are also a recommendation, just follow the directions and everything should be A-okay

make sure you read up on guides that are legit and not a 'click bait'

I've played Skyrim for 770 hours and never got a CDT using the Beginner Modding Guide by tony971

http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/56894/?

And I use Mod Organizer with executables SKSE, TES5edit, LOOT, Wrye Bash etc. I'm using ENBoost following Tony971 recommendation. I occasionally got some few CDTs due my own fault by installation errors, but always when I was using my MO alternative test profile.

My old PC CTD'd often, my new one does not. Biggest change was improved GPU and V-RAM. I think Skyrim is not light handed when it runs out of grunt. FPS didn't drop much, it just died. Now, no CTD's. I also don't use MODs.

You've played 770 hours since the 10th?

Unless your computer is really old, you should be able to use certain graphical ENBs with ENBoost. Improtant things to understand with this are:
- To install only enbhost.exe and d3d9.dll from enbdev binary pack and nothing else.

- Not to download ENBoost file from Nexus, if you are activating it trough ENB.

- To follow instructions about activating ENBoost with graphical ENB to the letter - from mod download page.

Graphical ENBs supporting ENBoost can be found from this page.

You can also reduce your CTDs and long loading screen by activating another memory fix from SKSE. Here are my instructions how to do it.

SKSE, memory and skse.ini

Well it turns out I did it :). I actually did it. The problem was I had two skyrim.esms and I kept using autosaves instead of my manual saves.

And I apparently had missed one link from my text. I have added it, in case that others might need it.

Nice that you go your problem sorted. :)
