Main Quest Line completely broken
Hi!
I'll cut to the chase:
1. First game broke.
2. Downloaded a new save (only the first quest completed)
3. COmpleted the main questline.
4. Savegame broke.
5. Repaired the save.
6. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/43791445/2013-06-22_00001.jpg
No shouts and everthing connected even a bit to the main quest is bugged and broken.
ps: I've tried all the console commands (e.g. setstage, objectivecomplete)
(reminder: I've completed the main quest line before the save broke)

I've also borked my Skyrim back in the day. There is only so much repairing and console commanding a save can take... If you have lots of mods then the situation is even more complex. I can't help you with rescuing your game progress but maybe you might want to consider uninstalling Skyrim and every last mod. Then install the mods you need and proceed from there. I'm not sure if you are familiar with BOSS or tes5edit, if not then Google those as well. I'm sorry I cannot offer more specific advice for you.

Yes I do know about the programs above and I used them as well following this guide for fixing the savegame (4.) http://steamcommunity.com/app/72850/discussions/0/846944689808402353/
(I should add that they didn't work, because some mods were the problem, 5.)
And yes, I also reinstalled Skyrim (deleted the folder too) and all the mods (even resubscribed to them). I have exactly 50 mods installed, but none of them which would change anything in the main quest line.

If you want to I can list them here.

I'm not such a Skyrim genius that I could look at a list of 50 mods and see the problem... And if BOSS, tes5edit and the advice in your link did not help I don't know what I can do that they cannot. What I do know is that installing and uninstalling mods while playing and also using console commands on quests can make a save unplayable. If you want to mod heavily, then do a completely clean install, then put in the mods you cannot live without and then do a fresh playthrough without changing the mods in mid-play.

Here is a great Nexus article "Mods, save games and stability" that explains all this better than I can http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/articles/801//?

The STEP project is also something to consider, if you are starting from scratch, want the best-looking Skyrim possible and are willing to work a bit: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/11/?

That is all the help I can give you. I hope at least some of it was of use.

Thank you very much (no sarcasm)!

I will try these advices and maybe I'll just do the side quests (they are normal) and I'll just cheat in the shouts that I used to have.

You helped me a lot and I'm glad that I found some help.

Have a nice day and thank you for helping! ;)
