    Rename to FO4VREdit.exe to work with Fallout 4 VR.

    I moved my FO4 install folder to another drive but FO4edit still tries to access the old folder(which doesn't exist obviously).

    Is there a way to manually tell FO4edit where Fallout 4's install folder is?

      Run the game directly from within Steam one time to update your registry settings after you have moved it

      Yep, that worked, thanks.

      Should've thought of that myself to be honest, if i had this problem with skyrim i probably would've.

      Yw. It's a common mistake and it affects LOOT, F4SE and tons of other program who reads from the registry

      Mod authors have no control over servers and how downloads work. Ask Nexus staff.

    Dropping in to leave an endorsement due to the fact that the exe reminded me I've been using F4Edit consistently for over 2 years. Thanks!

    In response to post #60880997.


    Spoiler:

    Touching anything that came directly from Bethesda will cause the game to crash. You cannot clean or otherwise alter the game or it's DLCs without breaking them. They're set up that way. You have to reinstall them again and start over.
     


    Not so.  Over the past several years I have used xEdit to clean DLCs of Skyrim, Skyrim SE, Fallout 3, Fallout NV, and Fallout 4.  In no case did my games crash as a result of that.  If someone's game is crashing at startup, it's not because of a proper cleaning of  DLCs with xEdit.

      Thank you for the polite tone of your response. I'm aware that there is a procedure for cleaning DLCs in FO4edit. Personally, I've gotten nothing but grief from any adjustments to them. While it may work for many people, for whatever reason it apparently doesn't work for everyone. My DLCs have not been cleaned and they seem to run just fine.

      For the record, I've done a LOT of successful work and bugfixing in FO3edit, FNVedit, and FO4edit.

    When I'm trying to add ArmorKeywords.esm (AWKCR) as master to the Backpacks of the Commonwealth mod (https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/29447?) I get this message:

    Assertion Failure (D:\Projects\TES5Edit\wbImplementation.pas, line 15384)

    After that I see that new master is added, but there are a lot of errors anywhere in the ESP <Error: Could not be resolved>. I made a lot of AWKCR/AE patches for myself but first time encountered this issue.

      This happens when plugin has errors. Resave it in CK and check for errors in FO4Edit.

      No, it didn't help. FO4Edit itself found some errors in this file but I don't understand what them mean.

      Add using CK, load together with ArmorKeywords.esm and save.

      Also plugin itself not only has errors, but very dirty too. It touches a lot of precombined refs in vanilla cells and breaks precombination, there will be major FPS drops. I don't recommend using it in the current state.

      I've never seen the "Assertion Failure" error before, but I have been able to fix a LOT of "Error: Could not be resolved" problems. Do those errors involve physics references?

    I've had fallout 4 uninstalled on my computer for about three months. Last week I reinstalled it fresh, and the first thing I did is clean the DLCs with this program.

    After I complete the cleaning every time I try to open Fallout 4, I get the message "Fallout 4 has stopped working"

    I have no mods installed yet, no script extender, no loot, no ini chages, nothing but the main game, and the cleaned DLCs.

    Anyone have any idea what is going wrong?

      You mean reinstall the game, and all DLCs, and do not clean them?

      I have reinstalled the game, and cleaned the DLCs again, but the same issue occurred.

      So are you saying to not clean the DLCs?

      Just let Steam validate your game files. That will fix anything you broke.

      Don't touch ANYTHING that comes from Bethesda. They have set up the base game and the DLCs so that any change to them directly in FO4Edit will crash the game. Reinstall the game and the DLCs and leave them alone. Any changes you want to make to them have to be made in a new plugin file.

      slygeezer, I tried that, but it didn't fix the issue. I had to reinstall, but if I clean the DLCs, I get the same problem.

      Thanks anyway.

      I made this same mistake myself and learned this lesson the same way. If you do start trying to fix things with your own plugins, be careful. It can be addictive.

      Thanks. I checked the most recent guides to see if there were any changes since Skyrim, but none mentioned creating a new plug in. Some one should make a new updated guide.

      Do you use FO4edit, or the creation kit to make your plug ins?

      This whole post just makes me sad. Cleaning the DLC's doesen't cause any problems, if you follow the instructions, It fixes them. It would be nice to hear if your game suddenly works after you have undone your cleaning. I would also love to know what 'They have set up the base game and the DLCs so that any change to them directly in FO4Edit will crash the game' -means, because my game have never crashed and I have cleaned my DLC's from day one, but this post is long enough as it is, so I'll just continue being sad i guess

      Sure. I'm downloading it now. I'll let you know if I can play as soon as it finishes.

      I had cleaned them months ago with no problems. This just began happening within the last couple weeks.

    Probably a dumb question, but when i extract the files to the said location ( FO4 games Folder) the FO4Edit.exe application does not show up. i tried just to extract the FO4Edit.exe it still does not show up. Any suggestions?

      You should extract it into the SteamApps\common\Fallout 4\Data\Fo4Edit -folder, you might have to create the Fo4Edit -folder

      Oh, you should definitely start to use 7-zip to handle packed files instead of any trial Winrar or Window$ 'unpacker' -thingy. 7-zip is free, supports all formats and is simply the best. (In my opinion)

    I've got some problems with the downloading.

    So I download the file manually and when I open it in WinRAR it says the application and also the other stuff inside is zero kb.
    And when I extract them into a folder and paste it in the Fallout game folder and then I try to run the program it says ''This application cannot be run on your computer''. Does this mean FO4Edit is not compatible with Windows10?

    Also can dirty plugins make my game crash in the main menu or is it something else?

      It is 2018 now, stop using WinRAR.
      The archive has 7z extension, was created with 7z and is supposed to be unpacked with 7z application.
      Any plugin can make your game crash in the main menu, dirty or not.

    Hi, I noticed merged patch does not include the keyword cc_ma_Pipboy in the pipboy armor entry.

    I do have a mod that adds an additional keyword unscrappable.

    How do I use this? When I start it up the Master/Plugin Selection is blank (Except for the DLC). I use MO2 for my mods, could this cause an issue?

      We wouldn't be able to help. None of us use MO2. MO, NMM, or Vortex. We simply can't tell you how to make it work never using the mod managers. It is pretty wide spread between Wrye Bash/Flash, LOOT, BOSS, All Version of xEdit like FO4Edit, that the authors can't assist with any configurations for any of the mod managers. There are tons of videos and forums for MO and MO2 users. I have no links as I don't frequent the forums or need to watch the videos. You will have to google it.

      If you verify the integrity of the game you have to relaunch fallout 4 launcher to reinitialize the registry paths before xEdit can see the path and work in MO2. It might happen with updates as well but I'm not sure about that one.

      If its not that Im not sure because Im using MO2 and xEdit is working fine for me.
