Description
A HotFix for Wyrmstooth designed to try and prevent a crash that may occur when travelling to Wyrmstooth for the first time, after speaking to Lurius on the deck of the Red Wave.

NOTE: You do not need to install this hotfix if you are not experiencing this crash!

A bug in the game engine causes a crash if the game cannot read an XWM music file packaged with Bethesda's archive.exe utility. I've been able to solve this issue for the most part by recompressing the BSA file with BSAOpt, a 3rd party BSA utility, but some players still seem to report a crash on heavily modded systems.

This hotfix should prevent the custom music tracks included in Wyrmstooth 1.8 and above from playing to prevent a crash from occurring.

If this doesn't work, try the following:

1. Go to Wyrmstooth on Nexus Mods.
2. Download the Wyrmstooth Unpacked BSA from the Files section.
3. Extract *just* the Music folder to the Skyrim\Data directory.

So far, I have no problem with the original. Do I really need the "Hot Fix"?

@aroundthefur79: The mercenaries will stop following you once you finish Barrow of the Wyrm.

Ok Thankyou.... I looooove this place so far! I like how you kept up with the theme of skyrim but in some areas It felt way more immersive!.A few little issues tho, It had crashed right after I got there right before the first "Barrow Quest" so I got a little freaked out but when I came back to the spot where it crashed before all was well. The only other thing that bothered me is the fact that when I travled back to skyrim (Lorieus?) and the rest of his crew followed me back and I couldn't dismiss them.I had to go to a prior save in order to travel back to skyrim without them following me, is there a fix for that??... Anyhow I shall print up the guide for this! an thanks again man!

I am about to start wyrmstooth is this hotfix required to run the mod ?. I subscribed anyway just to be safe but I'm just wondering if I should just try using wymstooth without it first? same goes for the other hotfix you have ?? Should I subscribe to them both or?

I have never had that problem on the first one.

I've updated the description with a list of steps to try if it's still crashing after installing the patch.

1. Go to Wyrmstooth on Nexus Mods.
2. Download the Wyrmstooth Unpacked BSA from the Files section.
3. Extract *just* the Music folder to the Skyrim\Data directory.
