I got immediate problems with SKYRIM SE after the pushed installation of Vortex 1.6.7 which included an installation of Microsoft .NET update. Background info: I have no other games, nor mods in Vortex than Skyrim atm. The mods are all from Nexus/Vortex website. All mods installed without problem. I played the game without ANY problem for several hundred hours until the recent Vortex and .NET update.
After installation and restart of my PC the Vortex began to use a lot of time starting after I click the sw to open. Before Vortex update it took just seconds to start the Vortex and have the GUI ready for use. Now it may take up to one minute, without any information about what is going on.
Another issue is that right after this update I started the Skyrim all sorts of strange things started to happen with the Windows 10 GUI. The screen resolution changed strangely and during the start of the Skyrim GUI got windowed, then full screen, then suddenly the view changed to Windows 10. This happened by itself several times forth and back. Then the game UI opened finally in a window but the content was like in full screen mode.
I did some research and found out I should delete the two skyrim*.ini files. I did that, restarted the PC and Vortex/Skyrim. The Vortex was again totally slow, but once I started Skyrim then it finally worked properly, but ofc I missed my UI settings for the game. It was reset to very low graphics settings though, so I used the NVIDIA Experience Game UI to set the graphics settings back to the optimal. Skyrim was back in the settings I had used it.
Now some time later it happened again, same behavior with the Skyrim/Windows 10 GUI, swapping of resolutions and windowed behaviour. Seemingly this happened by itself without that I noticed any update on Vortex, Windows 10 nor NVIDIA GPU drivers. Same fix worked fine for this problem again.
However, I see a lot of complaints about erratic behavior at this Vortex support website. Now, I would appreciate if the support team would publish some kind of summary of so far reported issues with the latest update of Vortex 1.6.7. while this update seems to have caused really strange problems with some of the users of the Vortex sw.
However, thanks for a great tool (Nexus/Vortex) which makes it so much more enjoyable to play so many RPG games. I have really enjoyed playing Fallout and Skyrim series games with the great mods you guys and modders have produced for these games. Keep up with the super job you do.
Greetings and thanx,
