This mod is no longer being supported and will receive no further updates.

A comprehensive bugfixing mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Hi-Res DLC, the goal of the Unofficial Hi-Res Patch (aka UHRP) is to eventually fix every bug with the Hi-Res DLC not officially resolved by the developers to the limits of the Creation Kit and community-developed tools, in one easy-to-install package.

- Hundreds of gameplay, quest, NPC, object, item, text and placement bugs fixed.
- Created by the authors of the Unofficial Oblivion Patch series.
- No unsafe changes (such as deletions of stock objects).
- Designed to be compatible with as many other mods as possible.

For more information (ie the recent changelog, mods that the UHRP replaces) see the UHRP's threads on the AFK Mods forum here[].

The complete changelog is posted here[].

If you're experiencing a bug with the Hi-Res DLC, please report the bug to us in as much detail as possible on the UHRP bugtracker[]. Please use search to ensure that you aren't submitting something that is already there.

Installation Requirements

Official Skyrim patch or greater.
Official Hi-Res DLC.

After installing the individual mods, the following general load order needs to be followed:

Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch.esp
[Your other ESM files]
Unofficial High Resolution Patch.esp
[The rest of your mods]

For getting load order set with other mods loaded, please use LOOT[]. It will provide you a solid starting point for everything that you can then tweak as needed.

Errors During NMM Installation

If you get the following error:

BOSS_API_ERROR_INVALID_ARGS: Master files must load before other plugins. The mod was not installed.

You need to perform the following steps:

- Uninstall and delete all the Unofficial patches in NMM.
- Exit NMM.
- Launch NMM again.
- Download and install all of the updated Unofficial Patches.
- Run LOOT to sort your load order.

Cannot Absorb Dragon Souls

Make sure your load order is right!

[Other ESMs]
Official hi-res DLC
[Other ESPs]

Use LOOT - you'll enjoy life more.

Loose Scripts in DataScripts

Check for: dragonactorscript.pex and/or mqkilldragonscript.pex. Remove them if present. They are from dragon mods that came as loose files.

DSAMG - Dragon Soul Absorb More Glorious, and Diversified Dragons are known to cause this. Those mods need to be updated with a Dragonborn patch that incorporates the fixes from the UDBP.

Others may be a factor as well.

Note too that the offending mod may have the script packaged inside a BSA. That will need to be handled by that mod's author.

Donations welcome.[]

This compelled me to actually use the official HD textures. Thanks Arthimoor.

It isn't necessary for SSE. The hi-res pack was merged into the main files so the USSEP covers everything now.

Can this be used with the Special Edition of Skyrim?

@magokoro My guess would be with the release of the "Legendary Edition" the majority of the patches etc are no longer worked on.

Hi, I had the problem where this high resolution patch mod did not show up in the launcher list the first time I subscribed to it. When I unsubscribed and resubscribed later it did appear. The only things I had changed between the two attempts were:

1) Actually installed the HD textures add on (I hadn't done this before I subscribed to the patch the first time

2) Installed Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE) from

Hope this helps somebody!
