TUTORIAL: REMOVING UNWANTED MAGIC EFFECTS FROM THE PLAYER


Symptoms: Player has a weird lingering effect such as glowing eyes, smoke, steam, ice or fire coming from their feet, mist surrounding them, and so on.

Solution 0 - dispell all spells:

To dispel all active spells on the player:

- In third person, open the console and enter "player.DispelAllSpells"
- Close the console

NB: as this dispells all spells, you will need to reapply your blessings, unequip and re-equip enchanted items etc to restore those beneficial spells.

If the lingering effect still remains then try one of the following solutions:

Solution 1 - adding and removing Spell IDs:

- In third person, open the console and enter "player.addspell Spell_ID" [see below for spell_ID values]
- Close the console
- Open the console again and enter "player.removespell Spell_ID" [see below for spell_ID values]
- Close the console.

Try the above instructions using the appropriate Spell ID.

LOAD ORDER: Note that Spell ID's are an 8-digit number in the form xx000000, where xx is the mod's load order in hexadecimal.

00 = Skyrim.esm
01 = Update.esm
02 = usually this is Dawnguard, if you have it
03 = usually this is Hearthfire, if you have it
04 = usually this is Dragonborn, if you have it
FF = (load order 255) reserved for dynamically placed references

NOTE: if you use USKP and are sure you have the right spell ID but the fix isn't working, try deactivating USKP first, then apply the fix, save and quit, then reactivate USKP. USKP changes some scripts to try to prevent certain effects being applied to the player, but unfortunately these scripts may block the addspell/removespell trick from working.

Solution 2 - directly removing Magic Shader Effects by their IDs:

- In third person, open the console and enter "player.sms Shader_Effect_ID"
- Close the console (some effects disappear instantly, others may take up to a minute to fade away).

The Shader Effect IDs are found in the Creation Kit under "SpecialEffect -> EffectShader". They are form type EFSH.

Note: Most of the fixes posted here are Spell IDs. I am only just beginning to document the Shaders and Visual Effects, there are hundreds and hundreds of them.

Solution 3 - directly removing Magic Effect Visuals by the Magic Effect IDs:

- In third person, open the console and enter "player.sme Magic_Effect_ID"
- Close the console (some effects disappear instantly, others may take up to a minute to fade away).

The Magic Effect IDs are found in the Creation Kit under "Magic -> MagicEffect". Not all of the magic effects have visual effects. They are form type MGEF.

Note: Most of the fixes posted here are Spell IDs. I am only just beginning to document the Shaders and Visual Effects, there are hundreds and hundreds of them.

Solution 4 - Try the "CureAll" batch file by LubitelSofta:

Batch files have been made by LebitelSofta that will remove all vanilla Skyrim, Dawnguard, Dragonborn, WetnCold and Skyrim Immersive Creatures visual and shader effects from the player:
- Download the archive (Cure.rar) from here.
- Extract the files to your Skyrim root folder (not the data subfolder).
- Edit the Dawnguard, Dragonborn, or WC or SIC batch files (if necessary) so that every shader or effect ID matches your load order (see above).
- Start the game. In the console type "bat <filename>" (without quotes). Eg. "bat DBMGEF" will remove the Dragonborn Magic Effect visuals.
 
The individual batch files are:
 
SMGEF.txt (Skyrim Magic Effect visuals)
SEFSH.txt (Skyrim Effect Shaders)
DMGEF.txt (Dawnguard Magic Effect visuals)
DEFSH.txt (Dawnguard Effect Shaders)
DBMGEF.txt (Dragonborn Magic Effect visuals)
DBEFSH.txt (Dragonborn Effect Shaders)
 
NB: you can use the included batch file CureAll.txt to run all the above batch files at once.
 
MODS:
 
WC.txt (WetnCold Magic Effect visuals and Effect Shaders)
SIC.txt (Skyrim Immersive Creatures Magic Effect visuals and Effect Shaders)
 
NB: you need to edit in WC.txt and SIC.txt and change the first 2 digits of each ID ("XX") to match your load order.

Spell IDs

This is one of the most common problems people have experienced with the game. This post should be pinned for future reference.

Could anyone ID this spell effect so that I can remove it ? It is mostly visible on the book I'm carrying and looks like fog that sort of drifts over my character model.

==BURNT SPRIGGAN EFFECT (DRAGONBORN)==

51819-4-1394183752.jpg
Hard to see burning embers on the player

- download the "_bugfix_DLC2BurtSpigganFXScript.rar" file attached to the bottom of this post.
- extract the files in "_bugfix_DLC2BurtSpigganFXScript.rar" to the equivalent folders under your main Skyrim folder (eg. "DLC2BurtSpigganFXScript.pex" sould go into SKYRIM\DATA\SCRIPTS)
- start Skyrim and load your problem savegame.
- find a burnt spriggan and attack it. The stuck visual effect should stop immediately.
Credit to daleowen5666 for finding the problem and fix. I've made a small change to the script fix he originally proposed.

==SPRIGGAN SWARM EFFECT==
 
NOTE: USKP changes the Spriggan script and unfortunately it prevents the addspell/removespell trick from working. if you use USKP you may need to disable it before applying this fix, then re-enable it after applying the fix.
 
Spriggan swarm effect (with Draugr glowing eye bug as well):
51819-1-1394184162.jpg
(green leaves around body)
 
AbSprigganSwarm: 9AA46

51819-2-1394184162.jpg
(green leaves around body or feet)
 
AbSpriggan: 9AA38

51819-3-1394184163.jpg
(orange leaves)
 
AbSprigganMatron: 1090f7

==DAWNGUARD SPRIGGAN EARTH MOTHER EFFECT==

51819-4-1394184163.jpg
(black leaves around player's head)
 
AbSprigganEarthMother: xx013b75  (xx = Dawnguard's load order, usually 02)

==DRAGONBORN DAEDRA BLACK SMOKE EFFECT==

51819-5-1394184163.jpg
(faint grey-black fog around player)
 
HMDaedraFX: xx023f82  (xx = Dragonborn's load order, usually 04)

==DRAGON PRIEST PURPLE SMOKE EFFECT=

Pay attention! This is one of the most common effects that gets stuck on the player, but many forum readers overlook it!

14718-1-1389227826.jpg
(faint purple fog around player, sometimes with two dots (eyes) between the feet) (NB. this screenshot has exaggerated color/brightness/contrast)

AbDragonPriest: 9bcca **requires the script fix below before you can use this code**
DLC2AbAcolyteDragonPriest: xx03911B  (where xx = Dragonborn load order, usually 04) **requires the script fix below before you can use this code**

1. Download the fixed script. Credit to enpinion for the fixed script.
2. Put "DragonPriestActorScript.pex" into your "/Skyrim/Data/Scripts" folder, overwriting any existing file if necessary.
3. Launch Skyrim and load your saved game.
4. Follow the generic console procedure for adding and removing the spell, using codes "9BCCA" for vanilla or "xx03911B" for Dragonborn.
9. Done!  :cool:

==DAWNGUARD MOTH AURA==

51819-1-1394184561.jpg51819-1-1394186248.jpg
(large orb around player)

**this is not a spell but a complex scripted effect which requires Moth Aura Remover by mmmpld to remove the effect**

==DAWNGUARD TENACIOUS SOUL DRAIN GLITCH==

51819-2-1394184561.jpg
(purple beam shooting upwards from the player)

Credit to GamerDame, birchtree and others for this fix:
1. Return to the Soul Cairn and find a soul drain crystal.
2. Get close enough to the crystal that it starts draining your life.
3. Eat a soul husk. This will make you immune and stop the effect.
