Once every couple minutes, when I try to open an inventory or loot something, the entire game freezes. The inventory won't open, it will stay there for several seconds, then get the "(not responding)" response upon which point it will prompt a close. This happens far, far too often for the game to be even remotely playable now.

 

The game has run smoothly for several hours, through the opening tutorial, a few dungeons and a couple quests, and getting into the Thieves Guild, before starting up pretty much out of nowhere. I've begun the Order of the Virtuous Blood quest, and am on the way out of the Imperial City to check out the supposed vampire's hideout. I've also recently completed the unexpected voyage quest, picked up the lead bandit's sword, and - before either of these - disabled the Vanilla Combat Enhanced because it made it bloody impossible to ever win a melee fight. Only during the last part, after leaving the "vampire"'s house at the temple district, did the problem begin.

 

Reactivating the mod didn't work. The game froze again literally the second time I opened my inventory.

 

Also, for the record, I'm currently near Fatback Cave, a region where a lot of crashes have always happened to me - but this began to happen even within the Imperial City.

 

The hell's causing this now?

Hello.

 

What's your mod list/load order ?  Maybe a mod is causing that. Is your inventory full of objects ?

Try a new game and see if the problem persists on the new character.

Do you have some performance/stability mods ? Like "Oblivion Stutter Remover", "MoreHeap", "4GB patch". These mods can help to reduce crashes.

Load order:

 

Spoiler

 

As a note, most of these were in effect in earlier games as well - I didn't pick up many new ones for this run - and back then I could go for quite a while before my save got inevitably corrupted. There were no inventory freezes like this.

Any fix to this or did we just ignore this and pretend it never happened?
