    This thread is for discussing the program or to report a reproducible bug. I will no longer tolerate complaints about the use of TES5Edit for things it is not intended for, especially when it's due to user error.

    NOTE: Anti-virus programs cause unwanted delays and issues with TES5Edit. Be sure to disable them if you are experiencing any unusual behavior. Kaspersky antivirus is one that is known to cause issues.

    ModOrganizer:

    None of us use MO so there is no way for us to guide you through any settings changes that would assist you. People not using MO won't be able to troubleshoot TES5Edit in that environment because of the differences when using MO. If you are using Mod Organizer you should read the documentation, look for Youtube Videos. Please direct all MO related questions in the approproate MO forums or refer to STEP Guides.

    GophersVids, GamerPoets and the STEP Guide are good resources for MO.

    When reporting a bug:

    Before you do anything, Can you reproduce the issue? If related to a specific record in a specific plugin can you reproduce the issues with a new plugin created from the CK? Try to reproduce your bug using a recent version of the software, to see whether or not it has already been fixed. Be precise, be clear and explain how to reproduce the problem, step by step, so others can reproduce the bug. Include any special setup steps. Explain in which part of the software the bug occurs. If you were preforming a specific procedure, explain what you are doing when the bug occurs. Explain the actual result of and the expected result for the bug you are reporting. Don't provide your suggested solution. An appropriate solution will be provided within the boundaries of the intended use and goal of the program.

    If you have a legitimate and reproducible bug, you have reviewed the above information, and you can still reproduce it then post a thorough and complete report on our new GitHub. The issue tracker is not a forum. It's for reproducible bug reports only, not possible bugs or questions.

    Questions in regards to editing plugins:

    For mod and plugin troubleshooting use the Skyrim Mod Troubleshooting thread. For plugin related questions use the Skyrim Creation Kit and Modders or Bethesda's Skyrim (Original) Creation Kit Thread.

      The docs explain the error. There is a link to the documentation on the description page. You need to read 2.2 to install and if you have issues section 2.2.6 if you get the error you mentioned. Remember, documentation is not game specific. If you see the Fallout 4 launcher, but you don't use Fallout 4, read the text. It explains to run the games launcher. Each game has one so for Skyrim it's the Skyrim launcher.

      That error is caused by "Controlled Folder Access" in windows. You need to exclude xEdit from it.

      The "\Local\Temp\" part is the giveaway for that.

      We appreciate it when you read the docs first before asking. There is a link to the documentation on the description page. You need to read section 2.2 to install xEdit. Remember, documentation is not game specific. If you see any other game showing that you are not using, read the text anyway. It explains how to install the program using 7zip. The other thing you need to do is read the readme. You don't have to because we provide a specific download for Skyrim and Skyrim SE. However, reading the readme might help you.

      For vocab so you know the difference. Skyrim Special Edition is Skyrim SE. Since it's an overhaul of the game and installs to a different directory then it's completely different.

      Anything else, original Skyrim, Skyrim Limited Edition, Skyrim Game of the Year, or whatever GOG or Steam might call it is simply.......... Skyrim.

      In the readme it will tell you what to rename it for Skyrim and Skyrim SE. However, as mentioned you don't have to rename it if you don't want to. Just go to the Nexus download page and download the file it has been renamed for you. If you wan this for Fallout NV you would go to the nexus Fallout NV page for example. The file is renamed already there as well.

    Not sure if anyone else has reported any problems with the 4.0.1 release, but in case it was just me, or even a common thing, I'll say it. I went to clean the ESM for Dawnguard and after a while of playing, I went to the Soul Cairn, and for some reason the entire land was really quite messed up. I am fairly certain it was caused by that because I went to the backup of the original and replaced the cleaned version and it was fixed. As far as I'm aware I cleaned the ESM properly so not too sure what went wrong.

      This was fixed in version 3.3.9 but more specifically Nov 28 2018. So I would go around and find all of your installs of xEdit and manually delete all of them. Then download the nexus version one more time and follow the install instructions in section 2.2 and try again. If it keeps happening then repeat the process of manually uninstalling because it was fixed almost 3 months ago and you still have an old version laying around somehow. Get rid of all your old version like 3.2.1 and don't use them. The bug was present in that version especially. Users need to only use 4.0.x or higher or whatever is the newest.

      Don't forget to restore you Bethesda files with Steam prior to cleaning because if you cleaned your old files with an older version then the old bug that has already been fixed will have removed the wrong entries.

    Why dose Loot tell me I have to use xEdit 4.0.x quick auto clean mode after using this mod? I Looked everywhere on various websites on what is this "xEdit 4.0.x quick auto clean" and my search lead me to https://tes5edit.github.io/docs/5-mod-cleaning-and-error-checking.html#s_5-3-2 but too no avail. It dose not tell me anything about "xEdit 4.0.x quick auto clean" but it keeps referring to "Quick Clean Method". I might add that it "implies" that this is installed in this (TES5Edit mod) but it isn't. However, it also tells me to "Mod Cleaning Process: With the release of 4.0.x the cleaning process has been streamlined. When selecting a plugin xEdit will only load the required masters as it has always done.
    The records you are trying to clean are the records that override changes to vanilla values. It has always been explained that you can't load additional modules. It can turn "identical to master" into "identical to master, but conflict winner" which the later will not be cleaned from the module. When those are EXACTLY the records you want to clean. So cleaning while having additional modules loaded makes the complete process utterly pointless and a waste of time.
    Selecting a plugin to clean
    For either of the two procedures you select one, and only one, plugin to clean." What should I do I'm very confused about this?
    By the way I use Nexus Mod Manager.

    i see have a number (maybe 5-6) of mods that edit race records, and when i click on a race category on xedit, it takes a lot longer to load races then it takes to load anything else. i'm sure part of that is because races have so many entries of course, but i wondered if that "loading" delay would translate to when in the game? does this cause unneeded loading stress ingame?

    would it behoove me to weed out some of those race edit mods, or perhaps to make a patch. or does the game only load the last in load order winner, so it wouldn't matter? thanks

      The delay is from aligning lists and calculating conflict status. (It's a very large record.) This is specific to what xEdit does and as such does not affect the game.

    Trying from both here and the mirror, the TES5Edit 'fails' to run. (It shows up in task manager as running, but it's not actually displaying the window so it's not useable). Have been following instructions when this occurred and this keeps occurring.

      Previously a user reported that he fixed the issue by deactivating windows defender.
      Alternatively, you could try holding CTRL+ALT+SHIFT while starting which should show a message allowing you to reset all settings and see if that fixes it.

    Okay! I think I screwed myself! I was trying to manually clean Dawngaurd of this wild edit and instead of removing the "wild" edit, I believe that I removed the whole cell instead. Do I need to uninstall Skyrim and start all over?

      No just run the verify integrity of game cache and clean the DLC again. While I agree there are a few things you can manually remove from Dawnguard, I believe it's 3 things. 2 of which are to a test cell you will never be able to visit. I recommend using the current method of cleaning and do not manually clean it. At least to avoid accidentally deleting something if you are not really familiar with mods and xEdit functionality.

      The cleaning process is shown here. It has been so streamlined you no longer need to do anything really. And GamerPoets has a video.

      Did you try starting the 64bit version? Did you read the message it shows you? Is anything about that message unclear?

      ElminsterAU, to be fair, some of us are not in the habit of starting executables that we don't know what they do. It may benefit to add some info about it in the read me maybe. Also, since this was a recent addition, shouldn't it be mentioned in the change log as well?

    Hello...

    When I try to turn Tes5edit, I have infinite Tips - I can not turn them off - how to fix it?

      The tips disappear after the background loader is finished.

      If you have your game configured for Polish, there is a known issue with one of the language specific .bsa files that will result in xEdit entering an endless loop. It will be fixed in 4.0.2 and you can work around it by just renaming the .bsa file in question so xEdit can't find it.
