How can I Remove DLC from my Account. (Permenantly)
Hi,

I need to remove the high rez DLC from my account permenantly.

I have the physical disk and want to play Skyrim without having to download 5gb that I can't use since it just causes the game to crash when it is enabled.

Not to mention I have a data limit.

Note: I recently reformatted. Meaning the game and DLC are NOT installed. I can not install the game because of this damnable DLC.


Edit: Just tried emailing steam support.

"Hello,

Thanks Steam.

Uncheck it in your Skyrim data file- 2 down from play.

That isn't an option. I need to prevent the content from downloading. Can't even install my game from the disk without using a large portion of my data limit on that DLC.

Why do you have data limits!? Also, the high resolution DLC is not installed automatically, even with the legendary edition (which I have) so really, you should of thought about it before you installed that free DLC...

I installed it before I had a data limit and when I installed it, it did not list any requirements.

Now it is permenantly bound to my account and will install itstelf automatically if steam detects Skyrim.

The game is marked as incomplete and will not launch unless it is allowed to download. I am speaking from experience.

Thank you for the suggestion, unfortunately that is a short term solution and does not actually fix the problem. It disables patches and as we all know.. an unpatched Skyrim is a buggy hell.

Steam support has to remove the DLC from my account, but there is no steam support for Skyrim, it redirects you to Bethesda. Bethesda can not and will not help with a Steam related issue (again, speaking from experience)

there are no further patches for skyrim. bethesda has stoppped skyrims patch support.
all updates are workshop mod updates, which can be avoided by using the nexus.

and yes, there is skyrim related support, you just need to anounce a steam issue, since you cant stop steam from updating...

There are still official patches, remember the backwards flying dragons? XD

Bad example but yeah.. there are official patches that I would like to have. Especially the update for mounted combat, that is not included in the base installation. My hard copy is a pre-order from 2011.

if you downlaod the game via steam, you will get the latest version.
this includes the latest patch etc.

there are no further game updates, only mod updates.

The reason I want to remove the DLC in the first place is because I have a data limit. (that and it simply doesn't work on my pc)

Not wasting 5gb+ of my data when I could install the game from the disk and download a few MB of updates.

except the chance is that that doesn't work skyrim can only 1 time be install by dvd ALL other times it will be download. There is even the chance that it even won't work the first time ... has something to do with activation I believe

then stick with the base game version without patches... or aquire the patches from somewhere else...

Very untrue. You can install from the disk as many times as you like. I should know.. I own it.

Yea why are there SEVERAL threads on this forum stating otherwise???

No clue, installing from the disk as we speak.

Well the problem isn't that you can't install, but upon playing it tries to redownload the whole game ...
