The load order from the splash screen's DATA section: Dawngaurd, Hearthfires, Dragonborn, HR Testures 1,2,3, then Magicka Sabers Expanded.

I'm guessing this mod?
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=15183&searchtext=Magicka+Sabers+Expanded

Also try playing the game without Magicka Sabers Expanded untill you are out of the Helgen cave at the start. Try playing the game without the mod for awhile and see if you still crash before adding the Sabre mod. You may also want to look at the "Unofficial Patches" at the mian forum page. lt's a pinned thread.

For conflicting mod issues, try this:

Proper load order for Skyrim + DLCs is

Skyrim.esm
Update.esm
Dawnguard.esm
Hearthfire.esm
Dragonborn.esm

Load order you should have:

Skyrim.esm
Update.esm
UnofficialSkyrimPatch.esp
Dawnguard.esm
UnofficialDawnguardPatch.esp
Hearthfire.esm
UnofficialHearthfirePatch.esp
Dragonborn.esm
UnofficialDragonbornPatch.esp
Magicka Sabers Expanded.esp

It is also possible that magicka sabers itself is just bugged. Does the game do this even WITHOUT the mod?

@ [FuG] chibilibi - you little mind-reader you ;)

@ Redrober - always read carefully the mod author's notes/decriptions.

I see nothing about unofficial patches or Skyrim.esm or Update.esm

Am I doing something wrong here? I click Data Files and all I get are the 4 things, the 3 DLCs and the mod. Help.

You won't see Skyrim.esm and Update.esm from the DATA screen, and unless you download the "Unofficial Patches" you won't see those either.

Your load order: Dawngaurd, Hearthfires, Dragonborn, Magicka Sabers Expanded.

I did the right order but this time I instantly crashed after continuing game.
grimus Jun 16 @ 4:28pm 
Start new or from old save. Also make sure mods are ticked in DATA section. l will suggest leaving Sabres unchecked untill you know your game is working.

Still crashed when loading old game. I might just start a new game. The problem might be that I had gotten the mod after starting a new game. Can that happen with a mod like Magicka Sabers Expanded? And yes it's the same mod grim was talking about.

Try verifying your game files. Anything more then 1 missing file means there was something wrong with your game.

The users are right to say that your load order should be:
Dawnguard.esm
Hearthfires.esm
Dragonborn.esm
(Any other mods)

Then start a new game.

Saves can become dependent on mods and load orders. It's also possible that the Magicka Savers mod has its own problems. (It only takes 1 bad mod to ruin your game. It's not a question of how many mods you use, it's a question of how many BAD or incompatible mods you use.)

If all of that fails, do a manual reinstall (uninstall through steam, then go to the folder that stores skyrim and delete it. Reinstall, and don't use mods).

In a working vanilla game, crashes should happen about once every 8 hours in a worse case scenario. I got crashes once a day or two when I played without mods.




What are your computer specs?

Does the game work fine WITHOUT the mod?
WildWestWastelander Jun 16 @ 5:07pm 
I played for about 30 hours without any mods just fine and then I decided I want lightsabers and Skyrim was all like ♥♥♥♥ you. So now here I am. I deleted all my previous games, unsubscribed from the mod (now I have no mods what-so-ever) and corrected the load order, which is this:

TOP TO BOTTOM:
Dawnguard
HearthFires
Dragonborn

Now I have no saved games or mods, and I think that's the correct order, which also I'd like to ask, what difference does the order make? And how am I supposed to know the correct order?

And also I bought Legendary edition after buying the regular version incase that helps anyone. I don't feel like starting a new game yet until I know what's going on or how this can be fixed. Also, I'd really rather not have to play without that mod, it makes the game a lot more fun for me personally.

Well that's that, any more help will be appreciated.

The order determines what order the files are loaded in.

Suppose you have two plugins that change the same thing. The changes from whatever plugin is loaded last are the ones that are kept.

Load order is important because of this. It is also important because some mods require other mods OR require a certain thing from the base game that is altered by another mod.

Since the lightsaber mod is causing your game to crash, I'm afraid you may have to just not use it. Some mods are just poorly constructed and cause problems even without other mods. I cannot think of any other reason for why the mod doesn't work besides that one.

I would suggest getting the Unofficial Skyrim Patches[www.nexusmods.com] and starting a new game. Perhaps they will fix the issue.

Also recommended:

ENBoost[www.nexusmods.com]
SSME[www.nexusmods.com]

Does the game work with just the DLCs? (DG, HF and DB. No Sabres) If so, that's good.(play the game for awhile. eg: get to Whiterun or further.) If not, then you'll have to find the problem.

If the "vanilla" game is working then try adding the mod. If the game then crashes then the mod (or your rig) is the problem. Adding the mod later in the game should not crash your new game. (takiing it out later in the game can.)

Just for the fun of it l tried adding the mod. lt works just fine for me. Then l deleted and unsubscribed the mod and played again with no problems. (l have ~80 mods installed and character lv 30, and my game is very stable. ie: no crashes.))

So l'm saying, the mod is likely not the problem, something else is. (mind you everyone's rig is unique.)

As a background information, we were previously poking around this problem here. I was cornered, after Redrober insisted not to rely on resourcers from Nexus. I do not use any Workshop resources, so I could not actually add anything new.
