Creation Kit Broken
Creation Kit Broken
Hey Guys, three things:

- There is no cell view window
- The render window is not showing anything when I load worlds
- Some windows are too big and the bottom of some windows are cut off of the screen

I have looked at section 3 of the pinned thread and it doesnt seem to mention anything like this. I have also loaded a cell from using the drop down menus but nothing appears in the render screen.
I am completely new to this creation kit, been trying to follow tutorials on youtube but to no avail because of these problems, any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance,
< >

Have you tried verifying cache?

Hey there, how do you do that?

Hello Again, yes I have now verified the cache and it says all files are validated, still the same issue, the main issue I have out the three is I can't get the cellview window, in the view menu cellview is ticked, when I untick it, a small box appears with "cell view" in it but I cant open the actual window as when I double click it, it disappears, very strange

Its probably opened below the bottom of the screen, theres probably a command to restore windows to their default size/position somewhere or other, I just don't know what it is...

Oh right, I did think that was a possibility myself, I have looked into it but thats not sorting the problem out, you see when I load up the editor and I go into view, the cellview window is ticked, however the window appears when I untick the box, but its just a minimised block that cant be expanded, and when I double click the cellview window to expand it, it disappears. I did see one other person in a thread that had this problem, they ended up formatting their computer and it solved the problem, but I am not sure whether I even have my disk now, and I wouldn't want to risk everything I have on here either, so I don't know what to do, unless there is a way to format/re-install windows without the installation disk...

Give this a try: delete "SkyrimEditorPrefs.ini" its in the root Skyrim folder i.e. in the same place as TESV.exe it should reset the CK windows to default

I had some trouble with Crashing Kit too where my camera controls were altered. it got to the point where I couldn't navigate anywhere I wanted to navigate. Your solution worked. Thanks much!
