    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

    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.

    Just a quick question (with possibly no answer): I am planning to do a "pacifist" run (killing no people - undead, monsters etc expendable) of Skyrim and run the thieves guild. I'm aware that at the end of the quest-line there is a certain human boss you have to defeat in order to progress. Does anyone know if it is possible to beat the bosss without getting a killcount? I know that conjurations and followers count towards the kill meter.

    As far as I am aware Rain there is no way to do so in the Vanilla game, you might be able to find some type of "send foe to Oblivion" spell mod or something that could do the trick.

    I don't think that would continue the quest though, I imagine it would trigger on his death not on him disappearing :\

    Don't know if anyone noticed, but Dawnguard is half off on Steam today for the next 12 hours.

    So are Hearthfire and the full game, but I figured folks would be more interested in Dawnguard.

    Yea, I wasnt' really concerned about the random vampire attacks.

    It was more directly related to the "secret stealth killer" one that takes people out in interiors, when the player is off somewhere else in town. Who even after you catch and kill, respawns randomly and starts killing NPCs again. Inside buildings you're not in...

    Ah well, I'll see what happens. After some more extensive googling, some posters on a forum brought up the idea of killing him through...fall damage...that's apperantly viable. That could be a contrived and possibly be patience testing way of dealing with him! I'll report back with the results at some point.

    In regards to TES 6: Do you guys think they will have to set that game about 20-50 years in the future? I mainly ask because there are so many options that they will have to think about: Assassination of the emperor, civil war outcome, etc. How are they going to go about setting up the next game without answering these questions. The only thing i could think of is if they set it about 50 years in the future and just saying this person died and this person died and this person got crowed king. But what do you guys think?

    Whatever happens, I want the official lore to say that the Dragonborn was a khajit and then became king of Skyrim.
