  1. I believe the problem turned out to be load order involving mod conflicts regarding LOD modifications. Quite often disabling mods does not fix the display of textures because those textures are loaded into the texture file. Removing the mod does not always remove all the texture files. So the incorrect LODs were there, just inactive until the load order got changed. As I recall the load order changed during an automatic update. Part of the problem when you run hundreds of mods at one time is that conflicts are inevitable. They are very hard to trace down. XBOX mods are handled completely different from PC mods so the problem you are having could be completely different.
  2. Well, pull up a rock and sit on a log and pound the game with the rock until it asks you to stop. Have a cookie. They are synthesized by someone around here. At least they used to be. Guaranteed non-organic. Gives us the energy to dodge the flying cats with flaming monkeys. Stay awhile. Watch Gopher pop up his head every now and then to rant. He is also very adept at breaking games by doing the quests backwards. Lots of fun to watch. Have fun.
  3. If you have played Beyond Skyrim Bruma, you have seen that all Skyrim assets are used out of the box. The only time an animal is changed is when it is necessary because it is different. Skyrim has pretty much the same wolves as Cyrodil. Many Oblivion monsters appear in Bruma that will be in Cyrodil. Sorry they look like puppies... It is not a new engine. It is the Skyrim Creation 64 Engine. The only thing that is different is the use of new scripts for things like a magic spell that did not appear in Skyrim. I am not saying there are not a lot of changes, there are, lots of new scripts, but you won't notice them except under special circumstances. Skyblivion will be very similar to Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodil, except Skyblivion has all the old quests (and some new ones) straight out of Oblivion and in that time-line. From the players standpoint, Skyblivion allows you to go back in time and play "Skyrim" in old Cyrodil. It is amazing. Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodil is in the same time-line as Skyrim with all new quests.
  4. It is just like the other Beyond Skyrim mods. It runs on the Skyrim engine. The combat is modified because some things you could do in Oblivion that you could not do in Skyrim have been added, But this does not change the way combat works.
  5. Gopher's assumptions are sometimes way off the wall. Or maybe down the rabbit hole? The "Looking Glass?" I can see him bringing assumptions from past games into the present events. I can see Gopher thinking, "Boy, this is not only linear but doesn't make much sense." Is X the treasure or the dead end. It is a strange story. I googled Mr. Hardy and Land of Flame and got some strange hits.
  6. Being on the early development teams for Skyblivion and Moroblivion and Skywind I was lucky enough to be able to play these games before Bethesda locked down the copyright issue that now prevents assets from being imported from those games directly into the Skyrim engine. There were simply impossible copyright issues involved. People need their royalties. All three games were playable years ago. The impossible task of recreating all of those assets from scratch by the modding community was so daunting that many modders gave up. There was a time I thought the projects were dead. Then Beyond Skyrim began to revive the dream. It was not impossible, just ... well ... it was going to take years... Eventually some computer AI will look at an old game and be able to recreate it in the future max gaming engine in minutes with new quests created nearly instantly from basic guidelines. But right now, games are still a lot of hard work. There was a time when I could really get immersed. I didn't see the engine and other flaws because I didn't understand them. Now I look at a world space and see the meshes and textures and my mind goes to ways I could improve them. I no longer see the fantasy. I see the mechanics. It is still just as much fun... just a different point of view. I should point out that the early versions of those games were clunky with low poly meshes and low def textures. The new games being created are just that, new games. They have amazing graphics, sound and mechanics.
  7. Supposedly, cosmetic changes can appear in the game being uploaded to the server. I agree about the game play. It was fun helping others, but I got addicted to Final Fantasy Online and really loved the community. Same thing. After doing all the quests I didn't want to do them again, even when new content was added. Still fun to just run around though. Fallout 76 isn't fun to run around. Once it's done it's done.
  8. As I understand it, modding can change anything except game mechanics. You can't make a more powerful weapon or better armor, but mods that change appearance, weather, cosmetics, etc. is fine. Personally I don't see any point.
  9. Personally I am not motivated to make any mods for Fallout 76. I might install a few just to see how it works. I'll probably just watch Gopher play 76. I did not really like it. It got rapidly boring..
  10. Where do you download DirectX 9.0 Create an empty folder, for example c:\downloads\DirectX9 Create another folder files in the DirectX9 folder, in this example c:\downloads\DirectX9\files Go to the Microsoft download center for DirectX End-User Runtimes (2010) and click the download button Uncheck all recommended software/features and see if the download summary on the right only says 1. DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010) Click on the No thanks and continue button on the right Choose to Save the downloaded file (directx_Jun2010_redist.exe), save it in your folder, in this example c:\downloads\DirectX9 How do you extract the DirectX 9 files? Open the downloaded directx_Jun2010_redist.exe file by double clicking it, or open it from the downloads list in your browser Choose to run the application if Windows asks Click on Yes to accept the agreement Click on the Browse... button and choose the files folder you've created, in this example c:\downloads\DirectX9\files and click on the Ok button The DirectX files will be extracted to the chosen folder How do you install DirectX 9? Navigate to the files folder, in this example c:\downloads\DirectX9\files Find and double click the DXSETUP.exe file Allow the app to make changes to your computer if Windows asks Accept the agreement and click Next To start the installation click Next Click Finish to finish the installation Direct X 9 will not overwrite any Direct X !! or Direct X 12 files. It is safe. Old games that check for it will then find it present.
  11. You may be having the same problem I have. My internet provider blocks certain access to European servers. There are ways around it but basically I would have to pay for a second provider.
  12. In that time period the minimum punishment would have been far worse than going to church. Most likely the best outcome would have been entrance into a monastery and a life as a nun. It was very common for monks and nuns to have visions. In a monastery their visions were strictly controlled by the abbot or prior. Hildegarde of Bingen wrote numerous letters about her visions and many sermons. She was highly respected in her day as head of a nunnery. I think this story is placed in about 1200. Hildegarde lived about 1120. Still, the DLC was very well done and very interesting. I wonder what they will do next.
  13. I don't think Gopher made the right decisions. He seemed to be overthinking it again. Maybe he knows something I don't but I think he just got Johanka into even more trouble.
  14. I think what I am looking at is a fan in the upper right on a big black square. What is that black square? I am assuming the motherboard is under the RTX on the left. And the fan on that side is on the CPU. Is the HD under the motherboard?
  15. A mini-motherboard. I shouldn't be surprised. Everything is getting smaller. Laptops are the new desk top. That whole thing could fit in a console. The only thing I don't recognize it the circle with four dots on top of the hard-drive.
