    Questions that are commonly asked or said in the discussions page
    "The latest version of you mod is crashing on start-up!"
    As of Version 0.33RBeta, the mod now requires the Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch. That will be the reason why.

    "Is this mod compatible with 'X' mod?"
    Please read the first sticky above as they contain the mods that are compatible with this mod. If a mod is not listed there and before you post a question asking about it, ask yourself "Will this mod, that changes Whiterun's appearance (for example), really going to affect Serana's dialogue?" Don't be afraid to ask. But at the same time, don't be stupid.

    "Hi, I obviously didn't read your sticky. Can you please make your mod compatible with a mod that is already compatible with your sticky."
    *facepalm*

    "Why don't you add stuff for the Marriable Serana mod or Why don't you pick up the slack since the guy for the Marriable Serana mod is missing (or anything related to Marriable Serana)?"
    Because Marriable Serana is NOT my mod. I just 'can't' pick up where someone left off just because their life got busy. It doesn't work like that (I have to ask for permission and all that). And since the last time I PMed the mod author and he never replied back, I have to assume that he is going to do his own thing and doesn't want to collaborate with anyone else.

    Plus, if you haven't noticed by now, I am actually not a fan of Serana being married. I know that will shock some people, but Bethesda wanted Serana to care about the player but not actually be able to marry the person. Which is why I am implementing the relationship mechanic that was abandoned by Bethesda but I will not be going beyond what they wanted to do. This mod was meant to expand Serana's dialogue and fix some of her issues.

    Therefore, I will only deal with Marriable Serana in terms of compatibility and nothing else.

    "Why don't you use audio from other games for this mod?"
    Because this violates Nexus' policy on using assets from other games. Porting is not allowed on here nor on most mod sites. There are some exceptions (in particular, assets from CD PROJEKT RED allows all assets to be used for non-commercial use), but that is in very rare cases.

    "Why don't you use audio from TV shows/movies she has been in/voiced on for this mod?"
    See above response and multiply the trouble I would get from those studios times a thousand.

    "Why not ask Laura Bailey to do extra lines for this mod?"
    Because I don't have her on speed dial? That and the chances of her actually doing it are silm to none.

    "Why not e-mail her? You never know!"
    Because I have a lot on my plate already and I want to at least have a full mod finished first before I even attempt going to this route. I will eventually go down this route, but not until I am happy with how for this mod is developed. But chances are that she will probably say no (for various reasons).

    "Well, why not pay her to do the voice over work?"
    Because of very complicated reasons, that is not an option (especially after the Skyrim Romance Mod incident). So, I am just putting my foot down on this option. All talk about the use of kickstarter or paying for her services will be ignored.

    "When is the next version coming out?"
    Check my schedule in the description page.

    "Is it safe to upgrade the mod from the Old Version to the Redux Edition?"
    Yes. There are some notes about the NULL error still existing if you do this. But again, that's on my (the programmer) end and not the user end.

    But because I am re-building the mod as I go along, the Redux edition will have some features missing that is available in the Old Version. It will be available in the Redux Edition soon, it just takes time.

    I would say Version 0.3R and above is when you can start using the Redux Edition of the mod if you are transitioning from the Old Version. At that point, most of the essential features will be added (minus the custom quest dialogue). Later versions of the Redux Edition will add the custom quest dialogue back.

    "When is this coming out for SSE?"
    It's out now.

    "When is it coming out for Xbox One?"
    It's out now.

    "This mod altered Serana's appearance!"
    No, it didn't.

    "But-"
    This is a dialogue mod... nothing more. This mod does not alter her appearance in any way (unless you count allowing Serana to be cured on the Vampire side as one). I left her appearance alone so you can use the 12,904,113.5 Serana appearance mods that exist.

    "This mod broke Chasing Echoes!"
    No, it didn't.

    "Now I KNOW you are lying!"
    And I know that you don't understand the concept of testing this mod before releasing it. I have 1,000+ test saves and I know exactly what works and doesn't work with this mod. Dawnguard is a DLC that was very rushed, with a lot of concepts being scrapped for the sake of releasing the mod earlier. Serana, herself, is a modding nightmare with some modders refusing to not go beyond altering her appearance. This is why there are VERY FEW non-texture mods for Serana out there.

    But I am also an experienced programmer and engineer so I wouldn't purposely break a questline nor would forget to test a mod before releasing. I do make mistakes from time to time, but I am not an idiot.

    "This crashed my game!"
    How? Also, no it didn't.

    "When I removed your mod from my game, the crashes stopped!!!"
    Correlation does not imply causation. Explain to me how a mod that ADDS dialogue managed to CTD your game? If that was the case then every follower mod would crashing constantly. Hate to break it to you, but you have bigger issues than some small dialogue mod.

    "Will this mod work with Spouses Enhanced?"
    After doing some testing, yes it works. As far as load order goes, you can pretty much have this mod come before or after SpousesEnhanced.esp/SpousesEnhanced_Serana.esp in the order.

    The reason I didn't put this in the compatibility list is to avoid issues since Nexus and that naughty site isn't currently on speaking terms.

    "I have an idea for this mod!"
    Check the forums page for ideas.

    "Why not have this mod merge with 'X' mod? I don't like that there are a lot of esps for this one person."
    Not my responsibility. If you want to merge the mods, learn to do it yourself.

      At your service my friend. It's not much yet, I never doubted that he wanted to finish it. I just doubted he would be given the chance. Then as it went on I had to admit that the motivation for it would likely wane, lost interest is always a possibility. Still may not get done, it is what it is. I appreciate what there is but, a shiny complete version would be nice.

    It's a shame you have the Unofficial Patch as a requirement. I use several mods that are incompatible with it that are essential to my game.

      It was either that or edit the scripts needed and that would have been compatibility patches galore. Can't win them all.

      In case you didn't know, with Wrye Bash you can remove this absurd and annoying requirement. Nobody uses the stupid Skyrim Legendary Edition patch mod anymore.

      Why? Isn't that supposed to be a requirement for many mods, and to fix bugs in the game?

      Pretty sure you can use xEdit to remove some stuff from USLEEP, I haven't messed around with it though as much aside from installing enemy releveler.

    I have one question regarding 2.0 update. Is Serana gonna have quest dialogues for Main questline, like she has for Dragonborn DLC? Because whenever i start a new game i immediately do the entirety of the Dawnguard questline and then proceed with the main story with Serana as my follower, going to Greybeards, getting their horn etc. But during all that she doesnt have a single unique dialogue to go by, so it would be awesome if in 2.0 she gets new dialogues for main questline as well :)

    Although SDA is a good mod I think all the effort was better used instead in making a new companion. SDE though expands on Serana in a more respectful way (I still want marriage though both sides have valid points on the issue). Been following and using this mod for years I think this has the potential to rival SDA with a little more work even though it is almost 4 years old. Hope you come back and update the mod.

      I'm hesitating on downloading this mod there's no video showcase either. Is it compatible with "Marriable Serana" mod?

      A video wouldn't show you anything, because this mod doesn't change the visuals at all. It IS compatible with "Marriable Serana".

    The mod crashes even with the Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch.  It wants some FNIS or some such BS to run and I cannot find it to download.  There are a ton of the Mods with that in part of the name but no straight Mod.

      This mod doesn't require FNIS (Fores New Idles in Skyrim). FNIS has to do with animations, which this mod doesn't deal with at all. Either you're commenting on the wrong mod, or you have other issues going on. Good luck!

      What Ronin said. This mod is dialogue only.

      No, this is the LE version for the original version of Skyrim. The SE port should be compatible as far as i know. I do not think it uses SKSE at all.
