My Mods Won't Work.
I am very new to modding. I downloaded about twenty mods. I then went through the processes of why nothing would let me launch the game. Now the game launches fine, but none of my mods are on/working. I went through step by step video that shows you how to fix your Skyrimpref.ini, but that didn't appear to be the problem as I didn't have change anything when I went through each step.(But I did anyway). I went to the data files and they are all checked yet when I start my alternate start modded game I am sitting in front of RayRay of Riverwood.

I also did load order through TES5DITS. Nothing helps.

use nexus mod manager it downloads and installs for you all you have to do is activate the mod

are you using Steam and/or Nexus mods, also are you using SKSE to start your game...i think your problem is, is that you are not allowing enough time for your Steam Mods to load up into your game each and everytime you press play

Like what Trigger said, where are you obtaining your mods, how are you installing them.

Also, what does this mean?
how to fix your Skyrimpref.ini
I was unaware of any fixes that needed to be added to the SkyrimPref.ini

I only recently started modding up TES to get beyond the "simplicity factor". Started doing it manually and then I switched to a Nexus/BOSS setup and now have 70+ mods with zero issues.

Sign up for Nexus. Install mod manager. (ie. F*** Steam WS)
Make sure TES is vanilla (reinstall if you have to)
Add ONE mod at a time. Test it. Play it.
At the point a mod fails startup you can be fairly sure that's the one doing it. (it's usually from missing main files)

Once you have a few mods running, download BOSS and use it. *Heed* any advice given. (compat patches etc.)

Alternately use LOOT (instead of BOSS) as it's a 1 click fixer-upper that has worked reasonably well. It's beta but simpler.

PROTIP: READ the advice given by modders. MOST issues are known between mods and they say as much.

KNOW thy install. TES - HF/DB/DG etc...

I use nexus mod manager, I am using skse ... How long should I give it?

All the mods are activated already through NMM, Skse is installed. I used Loot to resort the the load order and still nothing.

Are you starting from the skse loader?

Also - nice tip is to use the "plugins" part of NMM and activate/deactivate mods one at a time until you stop the crashing.

Yes. From a shortcut

on your Nexus Page, click on the Plugin tab and see if the mods are checked on.
ScarletMedusa Jun 15 @ 4:05pm 
All Plugins are checked.
