A couple days ago I decided to give another spin to Oblivion and I reinstalled it.
I made sure to pick all of the mods, injectors, good OBSE plugins and such, as well as the essential mods. The problem is, no matter what MoreHeap, OSR and OR settings I chose, no matter how drastically I reduce my mod selection, no matter how much I tweak the game .ini, I always crash within 5 minutes of playing or on each big cell change if I'm in the Imperial city.
I browsed a dozen different sites detailing tweaks, OSR fine tuning guides and the whole but no matter what the game remains crashy and I run out of fixes to try.
Here's my load order :
- The Elder Council and ICEXPAND are cleaned (both ITM and UDR), and I made sure that I used the ICEXPAND ESM provided with BC.
Here are the specs of my rig (not exactly beefy I concede) :
Here are the pastebin of the relevant .ini files :
Also I used to use ENBoost but disabled it because of a potential incompatiblity with OR, and the disk is fully defragmented (sadly I can't afford an SSD to run Oblivion on it), and both oblivion.exe and obse_loader.exe have the /LARGEADRESSAWARE flag on
Sincerely I cannot think of anything else to make the game run better. Even a crash every 20/30 minutes would be enough to let me enjoy the game.
If any charitable soul has any idea of what could make my install work better, his help would be greatly appreciated
