    Yeah TES:O could come out in Nov 2013 and Bethesda basically confirmed that they have 2 major DLCs planned for Skyrim (Dawnguard size) after Dragonborn.

    That could mean that by the time ESO gets released all Skyrim DLCs are already out. Dunno but could happen.

    Another mod related question:P

    Does anyone have.. lag?.. after installing lots of mods? I don't mean low fps but things like catching butterflies or taking torches as well as traps taking a few seconds to activate. It's getting really annoying and I dont know whats causing it. One moment it was just there and I havent installed anything that might cause it.

    None in-game, but dear god my loading screens take forever.

    What mods are you currently using and did any of them update recently?

    It's actually not because of any mods (probably). It's a common bug with Skyrim actually.. only I got a mild version so far. Some people claim they get 30-60s delays while I only got 1-2s.

    Anyway, I managed to fix it more or less. It made the game a little bit choppy when walking around big cities but it's because I have like 100 people walking around there so I'm getting a fps drop to 50. Anyway, it was caused by vsync. I raised the fps cap to 100 as well as enabled all sorts of multicore supports and 4gb memory in the ini following a guide. Havent noticed anything funny so far and the lag is gone too.

    I thought my horrid loading screen times was because of my crappy computer. Some of mine take about a minute, but when the loading screen shows a picture of something, as well as little info/tips, I groan because I know I will be sitting there for about 5 minutes. Of course, I am sure my crappy computer has something to do with it, but I guess it's a good thing to know it's not the only reason.

    I find it somewhat endearing how notorious Bethesda games are for bugging out.

    @Pachycrocuta I'm playing on a year old laptop and mine didn't start lagging until I binged on mods. :x Running that on an older machine has to be brutal! I had an old desktop that could barely play Morrowind when that first came out so my sympathies. I spent most of my time in that game with my camera aimed at the ground so that my FPS wouldn't crash. >_>

    By the way, does the loading finish if you minimize Skyrim and restore it? If yes, then it's also a framerate cap or vsync problem. I had that too..

    I play in fullscreen mode, and am unable to alt-tab (minimize) Skyrim during a loading screen. And usually if I alt-tab during any point, there is a 75% or so chance that when I go back to Skyrim, my actual mouse-pointer will be showing (not just the crosshairs), in which case I have to quit the game and then restart it, waiting 3+ minutes on the loading screen when I first start the game.

    Have you entered an interior? When I removed vsync and raised the fps limit, everytime I enter a building, plates, goblets, bread, everything will be flying and ricocheting off everything else, and eventually I get killed by a flying saucer. Am wondering if that is the case for you too.

    Press esc and open the menu before tabbing, mouse pointer shouldn't show up then.

    Yea but only at 120+ fps, it also caused shaking and flying animals. 100 seems to be fine and I havent noticed anything different from 60 after 4-5 hours of playing at least.

    Ctrl+alt+del works and the mouse pointer, doesn't appear if you do what Yakobo said. Also if if has already appeared, go to menu, tab out again and it will be gone.

    Ok Dawnguard question...

    I've not gotten any of the DLCs yet (PC player here - been on a Skyrim break for a bit..lol); and reading ythrough this thread when Dawnguard first came out I know everyone was having issues with the killer-spawning inside cities/buildings they visited and ending up killing entire cities before he could be stopped.

    Is this still a problem? I really don't want to pay for a DLC that's going to start wiping out my cities; and respawning the vampire/killer/sneaky guy even after I've killed him so I'm constantly having to go find him the moment I go anywhere populated.

    If its still doing that; I'm just going to skip it. I'm a werewolf in the main game anyway; and have no huge desire to play a vampire.

    But I REALLY don't want to ruin the rest of the game by having multiple important NPCs taken out "behind the scenes" (in interiors I believe was the complaint here) when I just stop into a town to sell my crap.

    So any changes/feedback on this issue?

    Thanks!

    I haven't had any problems with the killer taking out anybody on Master difficulty, but that might be because I got to a city before he engaged anybody.

    Yea, the vampire attacks still happen and kill NPCs but only in the dark. Theres a mod that makes them run inside when vamps attack but it's not working too well. Some still want to play a hero and rush to fight dragons and vampires with their iron dagger.

    With SkyRe + other mod guards the vampires get destroyed by them
    Pretty funny to get to the gates of whiterun and find a load of vampire corpses

  19. #6799
    I only ever had one or two people die to vampire attacks.

    Of course, it annoyed the piss out of me when the forge/weapon shop lady at the front of Whiterun was one of them.

    I've had Dawnguard installed for quite awhile now, although I have not yet visited the fort or anything. So far I've had a few vampire attacks, but usually it's one or two guys, or one guy with two hounds. Guards took care of them before they could kill anyone (usually townspeople flee when low on health). There was only one time where the vampires killed the stable people in Whiterun, but that was about it. Never had anyone in interiors die before.
