Skyrim Papyrus sucks... and CTD
Posted 24 March 2012 - 12:41 AM
for example... "can i rent a room" "sure thing" I don't get the room until 1 hour later when I'm fighting in a dungeon. Suddenly i wil have 10 coins deducted.
This happens to all things, including opening of doors to activating shrines.
Also i can only play the game for 2 minutes before it crashes on me. For no reason. Anywhere, anytime.
I have no mods installed. Nothing, vanilla.

Were you able to completely remove all your mods including the scripts, meshes, and textures? Or do traces of your mods remain and cause problems?

so hardware is not a problem.
I completely deleted my skyrim folder, then reinstalled.

The two mods that I know of that cause save file bloat are Adventurers & Travelers, and the previous version of Dynavision (the new version has fixed it). There are surely others too, because Papyrus sucks and the save system sucks.

Holy s*** guys my save were over 300 megabtes what the f***
That's impressive even for save game bloat I don't think I could imagine trying to play even at 50 megs, the 20 when I noticed was already really bad.
So, go through your saves and find the point where they start increasing rapidly. It's obviously easier if you've got a lot of saves like I did, but the pattern I saw was that it was fluctuating between 10 and 11 megs (going like 10.3, 10.4, 10.2, 104, 10.5, 10.3, and so on) and then went 10.5 -> 11 -> 11.5 etc. Obviously your exact numbers will be different but hopefully you'll see something like that. If not, you'll have to guess more.
When you've found it, play a little while (couple hours) with all mods still disabled, save often, and make sure it stays pretty stable and hopefully even goes up and down a bit. Then start re-enabling mods maybe a few at a time.

(...) because Papyrus sucks and the save system sucks.
Most problems are introduced by poor scripts (infinite loops, recursive OnUpdate [regsisterforupdate()]).
The papyrus framework is not that bad, apart from lacking somewhat in available features / predefined methods one would normally find in "proper" programing languages. Enter SKSE and ScriptDragon.
