Cannot login to Bethesda.net in game on PC
I have tried checking the cache, disabling all mods, nothing seems to work. I have very few mods to begin with, all of them just adding a couple extra outfits or hairstyles, but a couple of them aren't on the Nexus and so I can't update them.

The actual bethesda.net site works fine, I can log in there, but I can't login in game.

Help?

I have had the same problem for a couple of days. I even tried disabling my anti-virus programs but still no dice. I even checked to make sure my steam account was still linked.

i had the same problem,then i read that the xbox 1 has a 2gb mod limit,i looked at mine on pc,it was over 2gb,uninstalled a mod,so it was under 2gb,i could then log straight back in.the pc must be given the same limits as xbox 1 or its a bug.

I will take a look at that, I have probably over 2gb of mods.
I feel sorry for PC users. limited by consoles, but then FO4 would be PC exclusive, and the min requirements would be way higher. I don't think Bethesda wants to lose out on that kind of money.

Yeah if that is the issue I'm gonna be pissed, 2gb of mods in the grand scheme of things is basically nothing. The only mods I have are hairstyle and facial hair mods and like two that add more clothes. Total of 7 mods. Total file size 3.5 gb, when I dumped the data folder this morning.

I am currently reinstalling the whole game as I found a reddit thread from June that had the same issue and this fixed it for several people, so here's hoping I can use mods again after work.

You may be on to something with the 2 gb limit, After a week of not being able to log on I downloaded NMM and after I had everything set I fired up the game and just for kicks I checked Bethesda.net in game and it worked. Did not make sense at the time.

UPDATE:

I am now fairly certain the issue is the 2GB limit, but it's not just mods being loaded, it's all mods in the folder, even ones not currently in use. I backed up my Data folder and then deleted the whole thing, and it works fine.
It didn't work fine with all mods just disabled, only entirely deleted.

Choose your mods carefully now people, because Bethesda seems to have made a new and interesting way to piss off mod enthusiasts. :/:steamsalty:

hey who cares? not Beth, they don't even vet the mods they claim to support.

Why do you need Bethesda Login for MODS??? Download the mods on Fallout4 Nexus!

Bethesda.net is only for noobis!

Because theres mods that I want which aren't on the Nexus.
