If you have used previous version of ArchiveInvalidation Invalidated! (versions lower then v1.1.0) uninstall it before installing the new version.

This little mod will allow you to totally eliminate the need of ArchiveInvalidation, no more messing around with ArchiveInvalidation.txt or BSA edits from Oblivion Mod Manager, your replacement textures will work without any fiddling around at all now!

This mod works by installing a new BSA and adding it to the start of the BSA loading list in the Oblivion.ini, Oblivion_default.ini and ConstructionSet.ini. Only the first loaded BSA that contains textures becomes the "main" texture BSA that ArchiveInvalidation is run on thus any other BSA's containing textures are unaffected by it.

Their are 2 versions to choose from
Installer Version: does everything automatically, no need to mess around with ini files.

Manual Version: this just contains the instructions and the plugin.

Important Notes
-This will work with all versions of Oblivion.
-Some mods like "Francesco's leveled creatures/items mod" register its BSA's in the Oblivion.ini, after installing this mod you will lose those BSA entries and will have to add them back in.
