A cheat to remove perk points through leveling up?
So, I'm faced with the dilemma of reinstalling, losing all of my treasures and starting completely over in hopes to fix this Visual C++/CTD issue.
I know of the console cheats, and will be using these to get back mostly everything I lost (that isn't scripted in). But I want to know, if there's a cheat to remove all perk points acquired from leveling up. You know, when you level up, you can apply one perk to a tree? I want to be able to remove this after manually setting my trees to be like they were, to make it somewhat legit.

Is it possible? Or even better, freeze the whole XP gathering thing to get back to where I currently am.

Yes there is, player.removeperk <id>

Don't know if there's a command to remove them all in once.

That's not exactly what I'm looking for. There's not really an ID. It's the point you get after you level up that you can put on a skill tree, that I want to remove. Or else freeze the XP accumulation. Just until I get back to where I am now.

if you cheat your skills up using
player.addvskill ID
you will get exp like normal and that will give you the same amount of skillpoints like normal profression

Hmm. Well, is there a way to freeze exp accumulation, so this won't happen? I want to be able to manually set my player level, and not gain XP until I get to where I am currently in the game.

there is no way to freeze exp gain, at least not known to me.

Am I right in thinking you want to set your skills to a certain level (to get back to your old character's skills) but not do it in such a way as to get your overall level (and perk points) to increase?

If so, I think you want to use the console command:

player.setav [skill name taken from this list http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Console_Commands_%28Skyrim%29/Skills] [desired value]

e.g.

player.setav alchemy 47

This will simply set your *skill* level, not your *player* level. If you also want to get back to the overall level you were at before (but not gain the perk points) then I think there may be a comparable 'set level' type command, but I'm failing to find it, so I could be wrong.

The player.advskill command *will* add XP (so if you set your alchemy from 15 to 47 you would get that amount through the overall levelling up process, just as if you actually made a squillion potions to increase the alchemy level that amount) I believe.

I have used setav to increase my lockpicking and alchemy skills on characters who started out with experience in those fields, and it seems to work fine and didn't increase my level at all.
