No mods - still crashes
Hi guys! I've recently bought all the DLC's for Skyrim but when I tried to play the game crashes after Bethesda logo. I've unsubscribed and deleted all the mods (only DLC's left) but nothing changed. Even trying one DLC at the time does nothing. Can anyone help?

Not the best ideas to delete all your mods because some mods rely on scripts that will stay in that savefile that you need to do a little extra to remove. Anyway baby steps; have you verified your game?
Salem's Witch Jul 17 @ 5:34am 
Yup. But let me ask, what do savefiles have to do with anything? I just want to start over, but I can't start the game...

Read IIja(Ref)'s posts on a "clean uninstall". Then get MO and Loot to manage and optimize your load order for the pending mod fest.

Let me explain - I changed my PC yesterday. There are no Skyrim files whatsoever (except for the cloud). No mods, just DLC's. Yet I can't start the game.

tried to disable the cloud?
Salem's Witch Jul 17 @ 6:42am 
Just tried it. Doesn't work.

Do you have the high res texture packs? Those caused a bunch of problems for me about a week ago.
Salem's Witch Jul 17 @ 7:01am 
I do, but the problem existed before I downloaded them.

Is everything check marked in the Data Files on your start screen? When you say NO Skyrim files do you mean nothing in Steam>SteamApp>Common>Skyrim and nothing in My Documents either?

If you are loading a save that you played with mods in it previously, and try to play it without them, your saves will be are what is called "dirty saves" They have stuff in them that relate to the mods you have taken out and will be unstable, and at times won't even load. You can try to clean the saves, if they are like that, by following this guide: http://wiki.step-project.com/Guide:Troubleshooting#tab=Mods_and_Savegames.

If that isn't the case, maybe try and verify your game by going to the properties of skyrim (Right click it in your library and select local files, "Properties" then verify integrity.." let Steam scan the game and download if it needs to. You can also try enboost or SKSE 1.7.1 and use the memory hack found here:http://wiki.step-project.com/Skyrim_Script_Extender#Recommendations

There is more stuff on step that might help you, so have a look around there, there are lots of guides about making Skyrim more stable. Good Luck!

Well, I've done it all - deleted Skyrim, deleted all the files (including cloud), unsubscribing all the mods, reinstalling Skyrim and nothing. All I see is Bethesda logo and then a crash...

You didn't say if you had loot on?

Ignorance mode on: What's loot?

Maybe?

And I'm confused:
- "I've unsubscribed and deleted all the mods (only DLC's left) but nothing changed. Even trying one DLC at the time does nothing. "
- "I changed my PC yesterday. There are no Skyrim files whatsoever (except for the cloud). No mods, just DLC's."
- "...deleted Skyrim, deleted all the files (including cloud), unsubscribing all the mods, reinstalling Skyrim and nothing."

So I'll also offer this:
When you decided to do a "clean" re-install of the game did you:
- unsub and delete workshop mods from the DATA section of splash screen.
- deactivate and delete all Nexus and "other" mods from the game.
- delete Local Content via Steam by right clicking on game from Steam Library.
- exit Steam
- delete all files in Steam>Steamapps>Common>Skyrim folder.
- delete all files in Users>(user name)>My Documents>My Games>Skyrim
folder. (copy Saves fiolder to desktop, your saves may not work with the new install because of the mods no longer being active.)
- clean registry
- run anti-virus scan
- turn off the computer, wait a couple mins., restart computer.
- re-install Skyrim from Steam by right clicking on the game icon in your Steam library.
- verify game cache. (its safe to ignore the "1 file..." message.)
- check load order from the DATA section of the splash screen: dawnguard, hearthfires, dragonborn, HR textures 1, 2, 3.
- test game installation with new character.
