Big thanks to Odysseus, Syn and SgtGimlinho for the showcases! 

Installing & uninstalling:
  • Install with your preferred mod manager. Installing mid-playthrough is safe.
  • Uninstalling is safe mid-game. Use the uninstall feature in the MCM.
  • There is no need to run FNIS nor Nemesis after un/installing because DAR is not dependent of them.
  • Works for SE & AE (VR should work, but its unconfirmed)
  • Compatible with every idle mod like EVGI for example
  • esp is ESL-flagged
  • Not compatible with via Nemesis PCEA or FNIS PCEA2 installed animations that include ritualspell_charge.hkx file
  • Not compatible with DAR mods that have ritualspell_charge.hkx animation file with higher priority
  • If using controller you are only able to cancel idle with sneak button due to limitations of Skyrim engine.
