Hey there, modding and PC newb here. No noob to Oblivion.
So I'm trying to mod the steam version(Deluxe GOTY e) of Oblivion, and its up to date. I downloaded WyreBash, OBSE, and BOSS.
I can't tell if OBSE is working because none of my mods will work at all. I installed mods and enabled them through WB.
Made sure they were all in my data folder. I'm constantly opening Oblivion after I tweak things or completely delete and reinstall.... and, nothing.
They don't show in the IN GAME Date Files even though they are all in the Data Folder. I have tried adding the mods manually to the data folder without installing them into WyreBash… no dice. I've tried every suggestion and watched every Oblivion Modding tutorial on YouTube.
The mods in questions are all the Unofficial patches for the main game and DLCS, and a mod that starts me on a ship instead the prison cell. That's it. I may not be able to tell alone if the Unofficial patch mods were working, but since I have the ship starter mod I can clearly tell they're not working. I also tried to use the OBSE Tester mod to make sure OBSE is working but that didn't pull up either.
So with that I have two questions.... Should my mods pop up in the IN GAME Data files?
and more importantly.... WHY aren't my mods working and what am I doing wrong? Please explain in a way that I can understand. I'm not well versed in this just yet. Is what I'm missing small and simple? I hope so. 10 hours later and I'm on the verge of giving up on my #1 favorite game of all time.
***** EDIT: I just noticed that in WB the mods are not checked/enabled after opening and closing Oblivion. Does that everytime. WHY. I really have no other insight and have exhausted all options.
