The Dark Brotherhood Resurrection: Dragon Fix

This mod fixes a bug introduced in The Dark Brotherhood Resurrection: Part 1, that made all leveled Dragons in the world Invulnerable


In one of the last quests of The Dark Brotherhood Resurrection: Part 1, I thought I was setting my dragons to be invulnerable for a few minutes. It turns out I made ALL leveled dragons in the world invulnerable. This bug has been fixed in the latest version of the mod, but old players who saved thier games long before they noticed the bug are now screwed. The 'Invulnerable' flag has been set on all dragons In thier world and that status has been preserved in the save file. This stand-alone mod will safely clean your save file and restore all Dragons to thier proper role.

To use this mod:
1) When you start the mod, you will automatically get the quest 'Kill the dragons'
2) Every minute you will see a message appear in the upper left-hand corner that say's 'Telling the Engine to make Dragons' Vulnerable'
3) Go out hunting for dragons!
4) When you have confirmed that you can indeed kill dragons again, go to any inkeeper and tell them 'I can kill dragons again!'
5) The inkeeper will stop the quest 'Kill the Dragons'
6) Immediately save your game, then close Skyrim and uninstall the mod.
7) Delete the files 'DBRDragonFix.esp' and 'DBRDragonFix.bsa'

The 'Invulnerable' flag in Skyrim is 'sticky' from my experiance. It is not always removed just by calling 'SetInvulnerable(false)' once. This is why the mod calls that script function every minute. Also, it can sometimes revert after dying and reloading. This is why I recommend trying to make a new save, then closing the game and then reloading that save, to make sure that dragons are truly mortal in both the engine and your save file.

DO NOT uninstall the mod before ending the quest 'Kill the Dragons' this can screw up your save file.

I'm truly sorry to all my players that suffered from this bug. I hope this makes up for it.

is this a guaranteed problem with the dark brotherhood ressurection? or is there only a chance of the invulnability? i just subscribed to DB ressurection and it looks really good.. i wouldnt want to have to unsubscribe

3) Steam workshop limits how much you can post in a single comment.(as evidenced by this second comment) Because of this there is zero percent chance that any bug you post on here will help me fix the problem. If you are experiancing a crash, I will need a detailed description of the crash including what you where doing at the time, what mods you have installed, and what version(s) you are using. Please send this crash report to my dedicated email:

1) ALWAYS save your game often, and in multiple slots. Try the mod, if it cause more problems, go back to your previous save.
2) I have tested this mod thouroughly with 4 different save files. It caused no instability or crashes in any of them. However, this is not a garaunte it will not cause a crash in your game.

I have no clue what quests you have/have not done. I have no clue what mods you have installed. The latter is most likely the root of all crashes. This mod is rediculously simple, however I know that a lot of other mods also mess with the 'invulnerable' flag. So other mods in combination with this one could cause a crash.

Does this mod work or not? I can't injure leveled dragons, but I don't want to ruin my game any more. What do you recommend?

it's random, crashes if attempt to save, crashes when get close to a dragon, crashes if i hit a dragon, dragons are still invernurable, dragons ignore me. all the crashes are random and dont happen everytime.

does it crash during the fight? Does it crash when you first see the dragon, or does it not crash until you kill the dragon? Specifics are very important to fixing bugs
