    What does "unsupported alpha version" actually mean?

    * SkyUI requires SKSE64, which is currently still in alpha, so SkyUI simply inherits that state.

    * It is a feature-complete release. All features of the non-SE version should be working.

    * There are no installation instructions yet. If you need help settings things up, you should wait for a stable release.

    * Only short-term testing was done, so there might still be undiscovered bugs. Please report any issues you find.

    * Updates might not be backward compatible. If everything goes well, they will. But if not, be prepared to go back to an earlier save.

    FYI the patch 1.5.3 that added Survival Mode changed a few things in the UI internally, even if you don't use Survival Mode.
    If you used version 5.1SE, upgrade to 5.2SE to fix the broken difficulty slider and the missing survival mode button.

    Beyond that, Survival Mode is still not fully supported and I don't know when I'll have the time to fix that.

      Nothing to fix, all works as intended.
      I'm afraid you have issues with conflicting mods and/or not properly installing skse64 and/or SkyUI.

    So, uh... the MCM isn't showing. At all. SKSE64 is up to date as is SkyUI. What gives? I need to configure my mods, damn it!

      You have either not installed SKSE64 correctly OR you are not using the correct game-launch procedure, thus disabling SkyUI.

      I have both installed and loaded correctly (and they're up to date) and it's still not showing up. SKSE64 was installed via the script-dragging-in method and not the drop file method but still works, that's the only thing I can think of that would potentially cause problems (I don't think so, though?)

      That's probably your issue. In Bethesda's wisdom, the in-game mod-manager disables SkyUI. If you want to use SkyUI, you should switch over to a full mod manager like Vortex or MO2 and never use the in-game manager again.

      I use Vortex but I also use Bethesda mods, there are some I can exclusively get on either.

      You'll need to use Vortex exclusively if you want SkyUI. See if you can find a way to download the Bethesda mods to your desktop then install them via Vortex. There may also be a way to set Skyrim.esm as a master as well, others may be able to explain that.

      Well, only one thing to do then like Foxy Vyxenne said in her second sticky: Add Skyrim.esm as master to SkyUI.esp
      Open SkyUI with SEEdit. Add Skyrim.esm as masterfile and save
      Play game
      Enjoy

      How do I add it as a Master? Granted I haven't looked at the stickies yet (I'm what I'd consider an average mod user, not really skilled)

      If you don't want to get into SSEEdit (which is pretty easy, but may not want to deal), just reinstall SkyUI via Vortex and never open the in-game mod manager again.

      This is from Foxy Vyxenne, she posted this in an earlier post :
      How to Make Skyrim.esm a Master of SkyUI_SE.esp in Less Than One Minute

      1. Launch SSEEdit
      2. Right-click anywhere in the left pane and select "None" to clear all the checkmarks
      3. Tick Skyrim.esm and SkyUI_SE.esp and click OK
      4. Wait for the "finished loading" message in the right pane
      5, Right-click SkyUI_SE.esp and select Add Masters
      6. The only option will be Skyrim.esm- tick it
      7. Click "Yes, I'm sure" when SSEEdit threatens the end of the known universe if you proceed
      8. Close SSEEdit via the red [ X ] in the top-right corner of the SSEEdit Window
      9. Confirm it wants to save SkyUI_SE.esp and click OK
      10. Later, when Vortex detects "external changes" and asks you for guidance, be sure to click "Save All Changes" so Vortex does not undo what you just did

      It would be nice if you would use the "forum search" the next time to look for answers, this topic has been discussed before.

    He Guys, i hope someone can help me. I installed this mod, it is activated and in the Mod Configuration Menu is everything there. But my settings are not adapted. Nothing what i change has an effect - no coloured symbols, i set the quantity menu min. count to "2" but it still is "6" ...etc. What could be the problem?

    So this outright doesn't seem to work anymore. I have SKSE installed correctly. (I'm using a combat mod which requires it, and that works) I feel like this "mod" is just broken at this point.

      Please, read further down or up and look for the purple or yellow text that explains how to install skse64 and SkyUI properly, including things you need to think of before running the game . . .

      [EDIT]
      I believe it was TAB dôh, nope, that would quit the trading . . .
      Look at the Images on top of the page here, and look for the image with the title "Barter"
      Click on the names ( in the image it's Arcadia / Bastien ) to switch

      It should be visible in the bar at the bottom of the screen when in the inventory/barter/trade menu. For me it's the left alt key

      I love using the Xbox controller.

      It's makes things more simple then always using keyboard commands.

      Just my opinion of course.

      It's the only way to get smooth transitions from moving in one direction to another- that's because you need an analog control to deal with an analog behavior.

    Hello, I have had to unpack my "Skyrim - Interface.bsa" in order to manually change my control scheme in a way not support by vanilla (I have changed the favourites menu and change POV button to free up the right stick for Simple Lock On). After doing this, I have 2 issues:

    1. SKYUI errors out about all the *.swf files in the folder now. I'm guessing SKYUI prevents opening the interface BSA, but since it's been unpacked and opened SKYUI doesn't work properly. Would manually installing SKYUI and overwriting the swf files fix this? Should I just delete these swf files?

    2. Items in my inventory now seem to not appear. For instance, in the Live Another Life starting prison, I should have a roughspun tunic and footwraps; the roughspun tunic does not appear, despite being on my character. If I pick the Vigilant of Stendarr start, I am given a full Vigilant getup, but my bracers and boots do not appear in the inventory, despite appearing on my character and being included in the armour rating of the character.

    I'm going to delete all the unpacked interface files and see where that gets me.

    EDIT: I unpacked the Interface BSA again and went through deleting any files from it that were loose in the Interface folder. I uninstalled and re-installed SKYUI, and now it works fine and all items are being reflected in my inventory fine. Cheers!

    Hey, I sometimes have an issue where my controls stop working on inventory menus. I don't know what causes it, but every button stops working. I know it's not frozen because my mouse works. It just soft locks the game.
    EDIT: Right after I made this comment it happened a second time in the exact same situation. I was looking at a locked chest when I went to open my inventory. It made me realize that this has happened before in the same situation. Perhaps it might be consistent. And if that is the case it will likely be the result of a mod which requires SkyUI rather than SkyUI itself.

      I'm having the same issues where the menu bugs out and won't close properly, or transition from journal to map when I select so on my active quest. Came here to see if there was an update or fix.

      I did see your sort of answer about no fix coming which was helpful? But I wasn't going to scroll through 7,000+ comments of people trying to out ***hole the other in their technobabble "teaching moments".

      Still - the pettiness was entertaining.

      Don't scroll. Searching is much more productive.

      Click on the blue "Forum Thread" button at the top of these comments. It will take you to a different view of these comments with a search text box at the upper right.

      Most of the time I don't need to ask questions. They've already been asked and answered dozens of times over the last few years.

      I'll be starting another Skyrim runthru when Llama releases her new companion mod (Willow and Heather are already my favorites. I can't wait to see Liliana)

      @Mred saw your comment as trying to be helpful and the “Thanks Dad” was in no way in a negative tone and more in a cheerful thanks. Any potential snark would certainly be directed elsewhere.

      @DD like the constant need to not be dramatic? :-P No attitude here so... enjoyed the banter though. Thumbs up!

    For the buggy System Menu flashing the MCM menu briefly for a split second, I did more testing and I figured out what triggers this issue in-game, but no idea how to remedy the problem itself.

    Apologies for no images, but you could probably make sense of it. Basically any mod that uses MCM will be listed in the Configuration list on the left side of the screen. When trying to [Tab] or [Esc] out of the menus no matter which menu you're on (Journal, General, etc.), the MCM screen flashes and won't let you leave the System Menu any time the mouse cursor hovers on where the mods in the MCM menu *would* be showing even if you're not on the MCM screen directly.

    Basically, anywhere on the System Menu I would move the mouse cursor on the left side of the screen where the MCM list theoretically would be and try to leave the System Menu at the same time, and this would trigger it. Can anyone else test this, please? Hover your mouse up and down repeatedly over the left side of the menu where MCM configurations would be listed and press [Esc] while doing so. You should see your cursor highlight the listed mods during those brief flashes of MCM.

    Please, this has bugging me forever and I would like to see this fixed.

      I understand this kind of game behavior is irritating, but as Grandpa Zanderat said, I too have not experienced this, nor have I seen this being reported much ( I vaguely remember 1 person mentioning this ) . If you're looking for a solution to your predicament we can't help you I guess ( we = the mod users using SkyUI and helping out people who have questions ).

      The SkyUI team has left the building a long time ago, so a fix for this will not happen I'm afraid.
      Sorry to be the bearer of sad news

    Just an odd issue, came back to modding after years, I want to load the Custom UI Presets using the CUIR mod, however SKYUIs General MCM menu, doesnt have Load presets buttons anymore? How to get those, cause in the tutorials of CUIR it needs to be loaded.

    I can only load presets for,
    A Matter of Time
    Widget Mod

    But not Sky UI. General MCM menu, doesnt have those options anymore. Any help? Would be appreciated, thanks.
