Hi all! I just made and uploaded my first mod! He is a male follower that I made in Creation Kit.

While I was making him, I ran into a bunch of problems. To fix them, I ended up converting the 3 mods I used to make him into ESM files.

I heard that I was supposed to reconvert the new masters back into ESPs but I couldn't figure out how.

My mod was working fine for me but I have people commenting and telling me it's not working for them so I'm trying to fix it.

I'm assuming that I need to convert the new masters back into ESPs because that was the only step I did not do, but I don't know how to and I'm afraid that I'll break my mod??


Any advice is greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

There are three flavors of XEdit using the same file, just the name is changed according to the use.  First is just plain XEdit, second it XMasterUpdate, which changes an .esp file to an .esm (I think you are aware of this function).  Third is XMasterRestore.  As the name states, this will restore an .esm to an .esp.

Just load them in XEdit and change Record Flag in their file headers.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: esp, esm, convert, tesvedit, wrye bash, mod, xedit, help, follower, fix
