Hi! ive been having some trouble with my Skyrim se not being able to launch. The launcher pops up , i click play and the screen appears black for a 2 seconds and closes. I was running mods and everything went well but  i found mods that peaked my interest (https://www.nexusmod...tab=description and https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/2357?tab=description)  so i decided to  exit skyrim SE to download and install the mods. Also the same time my Titanfall 2 download was finished so i decided to open that first so it could install the necessary files it needed before going back to opening skyrim se. And that's where the problem began. I tried opening skyrim se but it just opens up for a split second and closes. So i decided to uninstall the mods that i recently installed but to no avail. 

 

Things i tried:

*Uninstalled all mods

*reinstall skyrim se from steam (also deleted files from my documents and steam common and vortex mods)

*reinstalled microsoft redistributable visual c++ 2015-2019

*reinstalled directx 12

*validate game files

*clear steam download cache

 

 

I dont know if it was the titanfall installation or the mods i used that screwed up skyrimse , but all my other games are fine (ex.  Fallout 4 with Script extender) 

 

thank in advance!

Post your plugin loadorder please. Also why aren't you using SKSE64?

Try opening options before launching, you might have some settings there that are messed up.

This is happening to me as well. Last week I was able to play, now I cant even launch. Something changed in the download. I also tried launching without any mods. Reinstalled the game and even went to Bethesda themselves, and they only offered the same damn things I already tried. I sent them my DxDiag, so hopefully they can see something wrong. That I cannot see.

Not once did you mention if you PURGED the Mods BEFORE you did all of that.

If you didn't, then Vortex still believes that all of your mods are still installed.

I use Nexus, I just deleted it from my laptop. Do I need to delete the games Nexus folder that has all my mods? Sorry if this sounds dense.

If you didn't PURGE, then you left the Hardlinks between the installed mods and your Data folder.
Which means all of the Mod paths are still saved in C:\users\YOUR NAME\appdata\roaming\Vortex\

Also, unless you Manually Deleted your Game Folder, then those links are still there, so even when you install new mods, all your old ones are still there, because if you leave stuff in a Steam Game Folder, and Uninstall a game using Steam, it only knows to remove the Files that Steam installs, and it leaves everything else in the Folder.

I purged everything from Nexus. and deleted the game folder in the app and game folder. I now remember that Steam did crash, could this be the cause of not launching the game?
