my Skyrim CTDs (crashes to desktop) without any error message on any kind of save (normal save, quick save, autosave..) Basically I've spent like 5-6 hours now searching on the net for a solution with no success so far. Basically my skyrim is now unplayable, as I cannot save my game. Whatever save type I choose it just immediately quit to desktop.
I've tried so far:
- complete reinstall
- driver updates
- LAA, 4GB Skyrim
- modifying the .ini files several ways
- disabled all autosaving features in the options menu
- deleted skyrim.ini and skyrimprefs.ini to have the game regenerate them
No success.. After all I can narrow down my problem to the save function. It seems my save files are corrupted. If I start a new game save function works. I've read that this has something to do with the size of the save file. Over 10-12 Mb size it seems save files crash the game on save.
I have like 50 hrs of gameplay in it and my character is over lvl 30, definitely don't want to restart. Please advise if you came across similar crash on save problems and if you have any working solution for it. My last hope - assuming that I'm not the only one suffering from this - is that Bethesda releases a good update/patch which hopefully solves this. But who knows when.
EDIT #1: forgot to mention that I'm able to load any previous save game successfully, I just cannot create new saves due to the crash. So its probably not about corrupt save games, but corrupted save functionality..
