Not quite sure how this happened, the blocking animation was working perfectly fine until starting up Skyrim today.
The two issues I'm having are not being able to move while blocking, and arm/shield twisting when holding the block animation.
Issue one was fixed after simply ticking the "SKELETON arm fix" under FNIS. Although after scouring the internet for anything similar to issue two I couldn't find a thing.
The only mods I have installed that actually affect animations/skeletons are "XP32 Maximum Skeleton" and FNIS which are only used for poses. Everything else is simply armours/textures etc.
Screen of how animation should be (Captured at the start of a Shield Bash animation)
Any help on this would be awesome since this is weirdly game breaking when it comes to the melee combat, since it happens with all NPCs too.
Cheers my dudes!
