Skyrim Creation Kit
I am able to load Skyrim Master files with ease, and I have produced a couple of mods that people seem to enjoy. The thing is, if you want to make better mods, you have to use the resources from the expansions such as Dawnguard and Dragonborn when loading data into your Creation Kit. As I said, the Master file loads perfectly, however, when I attempt to load Dawnguard, it counts up to 89% and crashes the whole system. Not only will it not load, it crashes anything I am doing in CK?

Does anyone here know what I have done wrong, or what causes this issue?

That is a simple .ini issue which I have fixed. My issue seems to be a (parent file) issue which seeks string files that do not exist in the datafile... and it starting to ♥♥♥♥ me off.

so if you have done this -> In SkyrimEditor.ini (Skyrim folder) under [General] set bAllowMultipleMasterLoads=1
and you,ve done this -> In SkyrimEditor.ini you have to search for sResourceArchiveList2
Add your DLC's at the end of it as well... it should end on Update.bsa, after it add the DLC's in release order (... Update.bsa, Dawnguard.bsa, Hearthfires.bsa, Dragonborn.bsa ). then i don't know what it is sorry

edit apparently it's spelled wrong in that link and spelling is important and the above was copy paste still dont know if i've spelled it right

I was not aware that I had to do that second part as well!

Let me do that right now.

Okay, so I found the Archive list and I know what to add to it but mine had an entry in it called Shaders.bsa and it comes before Updates.bsa...? is that normal?
Draaf fah Hahlor Jul 30, 2013 @ 7:50am 
yeah just put your dlc's after update.bsa

It worked, but I still get a ton of (parent) and (string) and (quest) issues?

if your talking about the ck errors that come up when you load up just click yes to all

I have been, but I am OCD as hell, and I'd like for everything to run smoothly, with all files found and intact.
Draaf fah Hahlor Jul 30, 2013 @ 11:31am 
i dont think you can change that as it goes, i know it can be offputting but thats just the way it is :(
drail3 Jul 30, 2013 @ 11:45am 
Indeed. How long have you been modding?
Draaf fah Hahlor Jul 30, 2013 @ 12:50pm 
Not that long really, whatever it says my CK time is, thats how long. I just tried to look myself but steam is playing up a little..Ah it just let me in 530 hours it says, mind you i think quite a lot of that was just looking and getting confused

Well you are certainly not alone in that. I have a few mods in mind that I know people would love, but I have NO idea how to work them into reality. You my have some skill on me yet, if you ever want to collaborate on a mod, let me know.
