Subscribe to download Wyrmstooth Travel Crash Hotfix

A HotFix for Wyrmstooth designed to try and prevent a crash that occurs when travelling to Wyrmstooth for the first time after speaking to Lurius.

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.

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.

I've tried this fix, the nexus download, mod arrangement and the XWM file unpacking, and still it fails to load to Wyrmstooth. Lurias asks if I'm ready to leave, I confirm, and the screen flickers to black and back, then Lurias runs of the boat to the middle of nowhere.
Would really like to play this mod, do you have any alternative fix?

Same here, I kept crashing on the travel to island bit. But I am now on the island after doing a little reading into how others solved the issue.

What to do:

Leave your steam subscription as is.

Go to http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/25704/?tab=2&navtag=%2Fajax%2Fmodfiles%2F%3Fid%3D25704&pUp=1 and download the mod with nexus download manager (if you don't have nexus, get it!! It's free ffs)

Go to your nexus mods tab and find the folder named "Quests and adventures". There will be 2 selections. "wyrmstooth" & "wyrmstooth - wyrmstooth" I went for the 2nd one. Dbl click it to install it and click yes to all for the overwrite file option.

Launch skyrim via nexus mod manager and say YEY!!! You can now carry on!
