    And, yes, sometimes game just crashes. No lagging, no freeze or anything, just crash. In my experience it happens only when i alt-tab a lot
    Alt tabbing causes it faster but it always happens eventually :/ just random crashing. Supposedly its from the game using more than 2gb of ram (including video, dont use task manager as a meter) and thus crashing but I did a ram fix for the .exe as suggested on the steam forums but it really didnt help

    Only little glitches, but that's what makes the game so great, finding out these crazy stuff

    Even funnier was how the Dragon couldn't kill the wolf for some reason. Kept dive bombing it and breathing on it, but the wolf just wouldn't go down. I had to kill the wolf for it, so we could resume our epic duel.

    I've also got a bit of an annoying bug where I can't continue in a certain quest, the one where you play CSI and investigate a murder. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong, who knows.

    The bug above though, about how someone was talking to an NPC when a bird crashed into him and flew him away... God, the image of that in my head. Can't stop laughing.
    that's how i kill the dragons, Wood Elf racial = instatank

    The scroll is on the table in the end of the cave. I believe theres a shout wall in the same room. I had the same thing happen with her just showing up, though I found the scroll.

    I haven't had any major glitches until last night. Was trying to join the Thieves Guild and after I strongarm the 3 shopkeepers into paying I go back and complete the quest and Brynjolf or w/e his name is says "Follow me, I will show you around the operation." then he just stands there and doesn't move.

    Ive now got about 60 hours logged on the PS3 version, save is at 11mb and I still don't see these frame rate issues that people keep talking about. Also i would like to add that after going over everyone's posts on here I see very little about game breaking glitches yet 151 voted they were experiencing them? Make you wonder how many of those votes are genuine or just trolling.

    I play on PC. The only glitch I've come across happened when I was messing around with cheats on a lvl 1 character. I don't remember what I put in but when I did it my character and horse started hovering around and then crashed to the ground. Both died.

    More recently I've had huge frame rate drops and the occasional corpse falling through the world after I head shot them too hard. The former most likely due to the PS3 running the game for 12 hours straight.

    I had some great texture loss bugs this weekend after long play sessions. I finally got around to doing the main quest and was about to do the first fight against Alduin when I noticed he didn't have a texture while watching the Elder Scroll cutscene. He was the texture-less purple blob they use when designing models. Came out of the cutscene and he was still like that until I reloaded the game prior to the final fight against him. Same thing happened when I was doing some cave in the north. The texture for the snow and the skeletons wasn't working so it was a big purple cave with random working textures and purple textureless skeletons. Was a fun bug lol. Aside from getting a couple quest items stuck in my bags, like the Flute, Lute, Drum, etc. that is the only bugs I have came across lately and none weren't fixed with a simple console command or a reload.

    Okay, i've found my first really really annoying bug.

    I was in Blackreach, and i went up the lift to the Great Lift at Alftand, in the outside world. The gate opened, i looked around and went back down. But when i went back down, the screen (which showed me the interior of the lift, and the dwarvern face facing me from outside of it) darkened and went black, and that just repeated again and again. I don't know how to describe it, but i couldn't move - it's like it loaded the end of the lift and a bug made it reload. I had to ctrl alt delete, and use the task manager to quit Skyrim. I reopened and tried again, and this time, the gate at the top didn't open, but the effect at the bottom was the same.

    Really annoying. I just skipped the lift now, but - anyone know how i can fix this? Or what the problem is?

    Edit : exactly same happened at the Great Lift at Mzinchalfet

    Help please somebody, i have been playing skyrim for around 200 hours and i went on today loaded one of my savefiles and as soon as the loading screen comes off, my chracter starts to fall trough the enviroment and ive tried loading my other save files and it does the same thing except for the one where i am in stone keep in markarth but as soon as i got out to skyrim again the glitch kicks in and i fall again only to be stopped by the ground underneath the ground. Ive already tried to fast travel to other places but no matter where i keep falling unless im at whiterun where i can actually walk on the ground but there is nothing else but doors, this is really frustrating bcz ive made so much progress in the game and wiuld probably not play anymore if i gotta start all over so if anybody can help i would appretiate.

    One of the little bugs I found, which is actually kinda funny, is anytime I shock something with Lightning Bolt, and kill them within a few seconds of that or kill them with the lightning itself, they'll go flying across the ground like 50 ft.

    Hey, I JUST got the glitch you mentioned some time back using the lifts at Blackreach. I haven't tried both but I've tried the same one using a variety of different things to see if I could fix it. At first I thought maybe it was the cheats so I turned various ones on and off but that did nothing. It's quite frustrating and almost game breaking. I think maybe I'll try coming from the top and unlocking it with a console command. My problem is that when I go to the lift, as it comes to the surface, it freezes and replays that portion over and over again. Have you found a fix yet, or have you just simply avoided it? Hopefully we can figure this one out.

    I have an odd bug or glitch. Every time I push the carts off the road into a canyon, they just hit the bottom and don't explode. What's up with that? I even tried putting a dead body in them and then pushing them off but still no explosion -.-
