CRASH THREAD!
Please, can a Moderator 'Pin' this thread. There are countless threads about crashes, and some find the "Help/Tips, etc." thread already "Posted & Pinned" a bit daunting, addressing so many things in one thread (I don't, but others obviously do). So I'm attempting to address just the 'CRASH ISSUES' taking nothing away from Master Dan, and his contributors on their thread.

1) So I'll start off by saying, that if you crash in the 'Loading Screen' then chances are that there is a Mod order discrepancy, or a conflict with another Mod that's your issue. Download & Install BOSS. --> LINK[boss-developers.github.io]

This isn't a cure-all, but it will certainly knock them down to size by organizing your Mod Order correctly.

2) If you are trying to load a 'Saved Game' and it crashes, then chances are that you have a 'Bloated Saved Game' or you have Deleted a Mod that depends on that saved game.

This may help some of you experiencing a Bloated Save Issue

3) Not essential, but I find it great to download Mods to, and have them automatically installed (If you choose that option from the NEXUS). Nexus Mod Manager V47.3 --> LINK[www.nexusmods.com]

4) Another nice feature. Many Mods require it. SKSE V1.7.0 --> LINK[skse.silverlock.org]

5) Also good to have, and needed by a bunch of other Mods. SkyUI.esp --> LINK[www.nexusmods.com]

6) I can't stress this enough... READ THE AUTHORS NOTES on any Mod you get. Know what's compatible, and what's not.

7) These are not the only thing that can cause a crash, and hopefully others will contribute.

Anyone else that wishes to contribute here, please, by all means, do so. I have only listed the 2 most common reasons for your game to crash. Of course there are others, and I don't claim to know each, and every one, let along the remedy for a cure, but I'm sure others do, and have some advice.

Good idea !!
You'll probably have to PM a STEAM Discussion moderator to have them pin this
Bob Feb 20 @ 2:43pm 
Nope. I'm just going to report your post, and you can do the same to mine, indicating a request for a 'Pinned Thread'

Thanks Shocks, for your attention to this matter.

Isn't this thread covered by this already pinned thread? http://steamcommunity.com/app/72850/discussions/0/846956740639650936/

PS: Don't abuse the report system, please. This isn't what the report system is for.

Yes, it is, but due to the number of crash threads constantly being created, and some find the "Pinned Thread" a bit daunting, as I stated above, then a specifically named "CRASH THREAD'' may cut these repeated threads down some.

I have also been told by 3 other Moderators, that the 'Report' button could be used for 'Positive' reasons, as well as negative ones. Such as 'Requesting a Pinned Tread' It's not abuse according to other Moderators.

I agree. Too many pinned threads already. Let a crashed game get the individual attention it requires.

If anyone but I posted this, you'd have nothing to say. Sorry, if I was trying to help those in need going to a logical place, addressing the same issue. Yes, many, many of these 'Crash Threads' are repeating the same old thing in one form or another, time after time. So it's not so individual as you so claim.

I agree with bob.
a pinned thread is definately a good place to go.
So.. i'll report too.
Individuals will have more chance of finding help and getting the right answer. And it will save on NECROING too.

Thank you kindly, Sir. I was only trying to make it a "One Stop Shopping Mall" and nothing more. Just to help curtail the numerous "CRASH THREADS" that we see addressing the same old thing, over, and over again.

I think it is a good idea and am always seeing crash threads so this would probably help.

Thank you too, Sir. Anythig to make this forum easy to follow, and find. Now if we can only get just one Moderator to do it.

This post is a mess lacking any semblance of sound advise. It's better suited for the OP's MOD thread. It is one dimensional and shows no understanding of crash diagnosis or troubleshooting.

So you say, but I expected that from a person like you. I didn't list anything that others haven't already stated in MANY of the other "CRASH THREADS" already posted. My Mods are a seperate matter, and I didn't post any of them, except for what was already listed in the other crash threads.

So much for your lack of knowledge, and shooting a helpful thread down, that thus far ONLY YOU think.

Pretty much like this thread insulting the entire Forum Members.

Why don't you defend your thread instead of attacking me.

#1...MOD load order crashed your game.

#2...A MOD bloated your game.

#3...Nexus Mod Manager???????????? because crashes caused by mods need to start somewhere

#4...SKSE ??????????????????????? more MOD advice

#5... Another MOD ???? Isn't this supposed to be about crashing?

#6...More MOD advice.

Why don't you just stop attacking me on every, and anything I say. I put up the most common crashes, and helpful resolutions. I have also asked for others for their input, but yet I see you attacking me, and not putting up anything useful to help others.

Your comments on this thread alone, will show people your prejudice against me for a childish argument we had 2 years ago. Grow up!
