Hi, so the game was working just fine but with a bit low fps. I wanted to test if I could increase the fps by simply changing the quality from the startup screen. After I changed it, the game now crashes to desktop just after the bethesda logo. I made no other changes in between when it worked and didn't. All my mods were working as well. I've tried the sound fix and a load order fix, but nothing's worked. Help?

Make sure you uninstall the high texture mod first, close NMM, open NMM and install the lower quality texture. Delete the HQ texture.

If you had 4k textures installed and want to reduce to 2k, first uninstall the 4k textures. Close NMM to make sure the cache is cleared, open NMM and install the 2k textures. Delete the 4k textures from NMM. The same process is used if you reduce 2k to 1k. Also make sure you haven't deleted a file without uninstalling first. Also make sure you haven't uninstalled a file that is required by another mod. Most CTDs on load are caused by a missing dependant file.

Well, I only had 2k, not 4k or higher. And as I said, all mods worked fine albeit a touch laggy. The crash happened after the quality change in the original skyrim startup where I went to options and switched to medium graphics settings. Uninstalling the 2k, closing and reopening, then reinstalling did not fix.

For me the crash after the quality was due to a patch .esp for dual seath redux.

Simply check your loadorder and load the game with disabling and then reenabling the mods one by one.
