Ok today i encountered a strange bug with the SE CK, while using the preview window.

I was using the preview window for certain items, and viewed different container models, after maybe 6-10 previews of different models, my preview window bugged out and went in to a blank black full screen, my screen resolution also changed to a lower resolution.

I did nothing, i just waited to see what happens. After maybe a minute my resolution went back to normal and to window mode.

After that i noticed that my render window, couldn't render the cell i loaded previously, even after i loaded the cell again. Editing a item fixed that though.

So i tried to replicate the bug. I used the preview window again and after 2 tries i got the same problem as before. Only this time, i decided to use ctrl+alt+del to get out of the blank black full screen.

But even that didn't worked, instead i got a weird very low resolution error msg, still in back full screen, i couldn't really read it, as the res. was terrible low. But it had to do with the task manager not working as intended. I really wish i could provide a screenshot, but i had to reset my pc after that, because nothing else worked.

To me it looked almost like some direct x bug with the ck, but i can't really tell what caused it. I viewed only Vanilla items in the preview window.

I'm also using an ENB for Skyrim SE, i don't know if ENB's affect the preview rendering in CK, like sweetfx and reshade does.


Does anyone else encountered something similar with the CK preview and knows how to fix it?


Edit: happend again in a simular scenario, it changed back to window mode after a short time and so i was able to make a screenshot of the ck afterwards.. i could only save the esp and close the ck as the windows rendered useless.
