EVERY website that says how is lying! Every website tells me to go to my save directory and look for a txt file of my save and then the base ID for the spell and then remove it by using the console! but that is 100% FALSE!! There is NO txt files ANYWHERE in my saves folder! All I have are .ess files and .obse files! I tried opening those with Notepad but all it is is a jumbled mess with special characters throughout the entire file and NO spell names or FormIDs of ANYTHING!!

 

It is kinda BS that so many people are thanking the OPs of these websites providing this false information because the information is obviously 100% false because txt files do not exist for any save files whatsoever!!

 

 

What is the REAL way to remove these? I made some errors in a few trying to get a spell to behave similar to how digestion works in real life and I realized something that I put in there does not fix so I want to remove it and start over.

 

The game really needs an in-game option to do this or at least a way to edit created spells.

In the game, open the console and type  save mygame 1

Go into your save folder and you will see mygame.txt

Open the txt file with a txt editor like notepad++

At the top go Edit > Find and put the name you gave your custom spell.

Or just search for SPELs

Get the 8 digit number from the front of your spell.

Back in the game, open the console and type player.removespell xxxxxxxx

You DID NOT READ my post in its entirety! You provided the SAME FALSE answer that EVERY WEBSITE says! AS I SAID There is NO txt files in the save directory, ONLY ess files and obse files!! NO txt files

 

I SPECIFIED THAT and you STILL provided the SAME FALSE answer that every other website provided.

Did you read the first line in my post.

You have to use the console to save the game!

Open the console and type save anyname 1

And you will get in your save folder a anyname.ess, a anyname.obse, and an anyname.txt
