This post may be dead but for anyone having problems, instead of adding the lines listed below to the fallout4custom.ini, add them to the Fallout4.ini instead.
(sResourceDataDirsFinal=STRINGS\ may already be listed under [Archive] just delete the last part.)
I hope this helps someone and sorry if I revived a dead post
Same here. I've poured over thread after thread of someone saying "no, you do THIS," another says, "Don't listen to that bad advice, you do THIS HERE OR YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG," etc., etc. Yes, I understand they are doing what worked for them in their game, but it can get very confusing very fast
Back in October I installed the game as a new modder, hadn't modded a game in my life until then. Followed the basic instructions on the Nexus wiki for modding, and it just worked. Everything worked great! And now... it doesn't. In one of my 5 re-installations this weekend, I literally made an effort to forget everything I've learned in the last few months, and download like I haven't a clue; didn't work either.
Yeah... it came to that, sadly enough.
Since I had to reinstall my game a few days ago, I figured ok, time for a clean start with all the mods I liked best. So, I re-download the game for a completely fresh start. I install FO4SE like I have for this game previously and Skyrim SE as well. NPC overhauls seem to work fine, as well as weapon mods/additions.
But for the life of me can't get mods like Repaired Sanctuary Roofs, Fallout 4 Seasons, Paint That House, or Patch Job - Fill Those Holes. Oddly enough, Sanctuary Hills - Water Roads and Bridge Remade seems to work just fine. The latter uses an .esp, the rest are just textures it seems, so I figured it was an issue with that. But Repaired Roofs has an .esp too, which doesn't work either, so looking for the uncommon denominator here.
I have literally re-downloaded and reinstalled this f***ing game at least 5 times this last weekend, it's sucked my weekend dry. I have poured through every wiki, thread, and forum I can find to fix this, and nothing. I've tried all the suggestions in this thread as well, and nothing.
I'm really at a loss here, is there something I should screenshot and/or upload to make assistance easier? I've really done everything I can think of and know how to do before posting, but my self sufficiency has met it's end. This is what my archive list looks like in the Fallout4_Default.ini file:
sResourceIndexFileList=Fallout4 - Textures1.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures2.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures3.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures4.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures5.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures6.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures7.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures8.ba2, Fallout4 - Textures9.ba2
sResourceStartUpArchiveList=Fallout4 - Startup.ba2, Fallout4 - Shaders.ba2, Fallout4 - Interface.ba2
SResourceArchiveList=Fallout4 - Voices.ba2, Fallout4 - Meshes.ba2, Fallout4 - MeshesExtra.ba2, Fallout4 - Misc.ba2, Fallout4 - Sounds.ba2, Fallout4 - Materials.ba2
SResourceArchiveList2=Fallout4 - Animations.ba2
SGeometryPackageList=Fallout4 - Geometry.csg
SResourceArchiveMemoryCacheList= Fallout4 - Misc.ba2, Fallout4 - Shaders.ba2, Fallout4 - Interface.ba2, Fallout4 - Materials.ba2
As a side note, when I put bInvalidateOlderFiles=1 under the [Archive] above as suggested, the game hangs on a black screen and must be forced to close.
Any assistance provided would be greatly, greatly appreciated.
