I used to have many mods for Oblivion. But it ruined game. So I decide unnistal all and play with vanilla version. But game is ruined. I unistal reinstal delete all files Five times but nothing helps. I think Some FREAKING MODS WITH OBSE Ruined somehow game registry... How can I fix this Invisible ninja enemies ! :O ://

Yeah, it must be something with the registry or other setting files. Have you tried deleting this[] folder?

If that does not help, I may need to run a registry cleaner but I can't think of a free one at the moment.

Well first solution did not help. However, When I used Registry Cleaner something changes. Game did not crash at startup but there is some kind of Error. I will Try reinstal game and verified it. Hope this will be solved. I will write here how it ends.

Un in stalling and re-installing won't fix any registry issues.

Have you been able to locate the ini file in User > My Documents > My Games > Oblivion (Configuration Settings) ?

If so, then try re-naming it or move it to another location so a fresh file will be created upon launch.

Actualy after reinstaling there is no my games folder in my documents.. and when I tried create it manually and rename it doesnt work.. it is bloody Chimera!!! :////
Major Antonius Aug 28, 2013 @ 9:54am 
I mean create whole folder with saves and ini file... it is crazy
Major Antonius Aug 28, 2013 @ 9:54am 
Upon launch will be created only error message... arg!! so confusing ! ://

The "My Games" folder in the My Documents path is created by Windows not the game. Read back, I only sugested moving or renaming the Oblivion Configuration Settings FILE, not any folders.

In either event, if you only moved or renamed the original, you should still have it, so change it back if it doesn't fix the issue.

I have the same problem no solution :(

I think I have the same problem: Launcher starts to work, tries to detect my video hardware, fails, sets everything to default aaand crashes. Fresh install, no mods, was running perfectly fine on windows 8.1 , switched to 7 and getting this bull.... There is not oblivion ini created whatsoever, I got one from the Internet but it still didn't help even after I set it to "Read only". Somebody find a fix please

The Oblivion ini that sits in the My Documents > My Games > Oblivion path shows up as "Oblivion" (Configurations Settings).

If you have not modified it at all, then feel free to just delete it as a fresh one will be generated by the game on Launch (they seem prone to corruption for some people for some reason).

Once done, try shutting down Steam and re-launching Steam and then re-launch the game. If you still can get no further, then try shutting down Steam and try launching the game from out side Steam (a system restart probably wouldn't hurt here, but who knows ?)

I did all of that before (just tried again to be sure tho) - still doesn't help, moreover- new oblivion ini is not generated at all
