Feel free to ask questions, but if you're posting a glitch, make sure you give a few details to help pinpoint the problem. Try to include the following information:
A short, quick name so we know what glitch your talking about (If your glitch is infinite health, then the name would be "Infinite Health Glitch", not "Super Amazing Cool Health Thingie I Found One Day"
A Description of what happened (ex. I was walking into Caldera when I suddenly became paralyzed.)
Relevant location the glitch happened: (If the glitch takes effect in every part of Balmora, then we don't need to know the exact square inch it happened on. Conversely, if you fall through the ground, we probably need to know the exact spot.)
Relevant activities when it happened: (If the glitch involves the game crashing when a weapon is rendered, then it's probably worth noting if you had that weapon equipped, or if it was lying on a table when you entered the cell.)
What version of the mod do you have? (Self-explanatory)
What dash do you have? (Doubt it, but might be relevant)
Is the game fully installed or running from the DVD? (Installed meaning: You ripped the game to somewhere on the hard drive. Include which drive.)
Is your Hex'd XBE file in the cache or somewhere else? (Also might be a variable.)
Do you have any other mods installed? (They might be interfering.)
Is the glitch repeatable? (Did it only happen once, or can you make it happen at will?)
If it's repeatable, what can you do differently and still get the same result? ( I don't mean, can you turn left instead of right and still crash the game. I mean, does pushing either the Back button or the B button make a difference when bringing up the map?)
Possible Cause (You don't need to add this, but if you have an idea of what might be causing the glitch, feel free to add it. If you think you know which mod in the mod pack is creating the problem, then please include the name.)
Any other Info or comments? (If so, add them.)
If you don't know every detail, don't worry about it. Keep in mind, not everyone here know TES code or how mods work, so it' might take some time (if ever) for anyone to fix the glitch.
But, if you want to show how you fixed the glitch, then include the following:
Glitch name from original post
Why the glitch was occurring (If you know)
And of course, how you fixed it.
Okay. So, to get the ball rolling, I'll include the first glitch.
Falasmaryon Swimming Burden Glitch
Description I was walking aimlessly around the Ashlands and wound up at Falasmaryyon. I slept outside and then went into "Falasmaryon, Missum Akin's Hut". As soon as I stepped in, I was over-encumbered with 96 points(80+16, no wet equipment burden) of burden because the game thought I was swimming. I tried entering twice, both times had burden but had 200 burden the second time only. I tried removing all items from inventory outside and then entering, but still had burden. Went outside, picked up all items and re-entered a fourth time, had no burden after that. The same thing happened with "Falasmaryon, Lower Level". But it only happened after the other cell stopped adding burden. I didn't get a chance to test emptying my inventory on the second cell. In both cases, leaving either cell removed the swimming burden.
Relevant Locations: "Falasmaryon, Missum Akin's Hut" and "Falasmaryon, Lower Level"
Relevant activities when it happened: I wasn't doing anything other than entering an interior cell.
What version of the mod do you have? 2.2
What dash do you have? Unleashx 0.39 0528A
Is the game fully installed or running from the DVD? I have the game fully installed to E:/games/Morrowind Game Of The Year/
Is your Hex'd XBE file in the cache or somewhere else? The XBE file is hex edited correctly, and stored in the game's folder
Do you have any other mods installed? (No, no mods other than MiniMorrowind are installed.
Is the glitch repeatable? It was repeatable until I emptied my inventory, entered the cell, exited the cell, picked up my items, and entered the cell again. After that it never happened in that cell again, but it did happen in another cell afterward. (See Description)
If it's repeatable, what can you do differently and still get the same result? Dropping all of my items (and encumbrance) outside the cell and then entering had no effect. But picking my items up afterward and entering resulted in no glitch in that cell.
Possible Cause Cell mislabeled as having water in the TES CS or a script error. I assume "Swimming Realism" is to blame.
Any other Info or comments? Is 80+16 (+20 for wet equipment) or 200 burden for swimming realistic? People don't double in weight when in water. Why not make the burden reflect the amount of weight you already have, which better simulates water being trapped/absorbed into you items? (ex. Add 1 burden of swimming for every 2 burden of inventory items.) Or easier, just lower to 40 or something.
