I haven't posted there in a very long time.

I posted a bug report, and got no response. You'd think they'd want to fix Skyrim bugs, yes? And I'm still not sure what caused it.

Sometimes when I start a new game, I'll have an automatic levelup waiting just as I get in game. And my skills will increase at an alarming rate.. like one hit gives you one skill up. Move at all while sneaking, one skill up. Block one hit, skillup. Take a hit, armor skillup...

So I report it... and it proceeds to get no answers. In fact, I found out later that it happened again, so I googled it and only came up with my thread, no replies.

First time, no.

Subsequent times, plenty, and every time it happens, my load order is different so I can't really pin it down.

I do not run gameplay enhancements or perk overhauls, like Requiem or anything like that. I don't run anything that affects skill leveling either.

Running the file validation fixes it, but every time I do that it resets my screenshot counter and if I'm not careful I'll overwrite all my screenshots.

Hmmm, that is strange. Khajiit has never encountered this bug before. Do you know of anyone else having the same problem?

Also, do you keep your screenshots only in the Steam location?

Subsequent times, plenty, and every time it happens, my load order is different so I can't really pin it down.

I do not run gameplay enhancements or perk overhauls, like Requiem or anything like that. I don't run anything that affects skill leveling either.

Running the file validation fixes it, but every time I do that it resets my screenshot counter and if I'm not careful I'll overwrite all my screenshots.

Hmmm, that is strange. Khajiit has never encountered this bug before. Do you know of anyone else having the same problem?

Also, do you keep your screenshots only in the Steam location?


My screenshots are not Steam screenshots, they go into the Skyrim folder. And are named all stupid like. Screenshot0, etc. It's the default.

I've seen a few reports of this bug before, and it's happened over three installs so I don't think my install was to blame unless it's magically carried over three different computers.

It's kinda rare, but still annoying.

Yeah, not sure about the bug but Khajiit would definitely recommend moving your screenshots from that folder to a new one (like maybe your pictures library). That way you won’t have to be concerned with losing them.

I agree with Khajiit. I just have to remember to move them. I usually do, but I dislike having to rename them or keep separate folders. I might just wipe them out and start over since I don't even go looking through them...

I have 10 games' screenshots in a folder, all the way back to my EQ2 days, and I don't look at them. lol

Most people take 4 weeks off in July.

Necessary services like hospitals and other businesses will rotate 4 week vacations in shifts over the entire summer. Like my bf's hospital where he goes for dialysis, they have three vacation periods, where a third of the staff in the ward is gone for a month.

The country literally shuts down in some aspects... expecting your favorite cafe to be open is hit or miss because the employees are probably taking a vacation.

Tourist destinations tend to be open though. They make serious bank during the month of July.

Right, the problem with the big vacation is that you can't go anywhere they're having their own vacation, because everything will be shut down.

Idiots are setting off fireworks outside. They woke me up doing it last night too. Bang, bang, bang! I almost ran outside with my M4 ready to shoot someone. Because just six months ago I woke up to a bang, bang, bang, and it turned out to be one of my neighbors being murdered.

In other news I made a Memorial Day edition of Tom Clancy's EndWar...All I did was dedicate it to the men and women of the armed forces and made it longer then usual. I think I might try to get a better headset cause man this game seems to be fudging up my orders and you REALLY need to be precise and have the right units at hand cause using the wrong units or your units not understanding or following the right orders can make a mission go to crap real quick.

Anyone remember the animated series Reign the Conqueror? I like the spin they did to the Alexander the Great story but my only complaint was I didn't like the artwork as I found it ugly and apperently the artist was a fan Rolling Stones Mick Jagger as everyone in that show looked like him. Hell there's one guy that ACTUALLY looks like Mick Jagger.

No kidding.

I watched a little bit of it. Enough to disagree with almost everything the guy is saying. George Lucas was working on a higher plane? George Lucas was so much more incredibly creative than anyone else? Yeah, like the good old days when he gave us Ewoks? When he changed the first movie so Han fired second? Jar-Jar Binks? People just loved all that? George Lucas literally sold the entire franchise because he could not take how absolutely toxic his own fans had become.

The original trilogy of Star Wars movies were not masterpieces of cinema. They told a very simple story of one-dimensional black vs white morality that was easy for people to identify with, and had the very good timing of being released 5 years after the Vietnam War ended (and people were worn down the moral ambiguities of the real world). The writing was not great. The first movie was literally a remake of a Kurosawa film. The characters were neither original or especially well developed. Even the performances were not extraordinary. Alec Guiness literally hated being in Star Wars, because he was a real actor and he considered it to be tripe that was beneath him (but apparently the paycheck was worthy of him).

Some of the new movies are outstanding, yes I am looking at you Rogue One. Some are poor, yes I am looking at you Last Jedi. The same can be said for the originals, and the prequels. This franchise has always been very uneven at best. Saying that the current crop of filmmakers is inferior to George Lucas is ignoring a huge amount of hatred toward George Lucas. The fact is that a very large proportion of the Star Wars fanbase became extremely toxic long before Disney bought the franchise.

I myself never hated Lucas. If he wanted Ewoks, then it was his movie, he could have Ewoks. If he wanted Han to fire second, it's his movie, I never complained. Likewise I don't hate Rian Johnson. Though I do hope he never makes another Star Wars movie.

Nor do I hate that they are killing off the original characters. As I noted a long time ago, they literally have to do that. I am sorry, but a bunch of 70 year old's just cannot carry a franchise. It needs new blood, and for the new characters to rise, the old ones have to fall. The original trilogy did this when it killed off Obi-Wan, Tarkin, The Emperor, and Vader. They were the old guard, and they had to go for the new guard to rise. I didn't mind how they killed the one in The Force Awakens *no specifics 'cause spoilers*, nor even the one in Last Jedi. But I did not like how they handled Luke on the island during the Last Jedi. I think it was weak writing, and that it could have been done better.

Doesn't mean the fandom hasn't been taken over by identity politics.


But that's a different topic. Not discussing it further here. smile.gif

Awkward moment: when your neighbors invite you to do something but don't speak their language well enough to really discuss anything with them...

Mine asked my fiance and I to go swimming with them. My Swedish is absolutely lacking. Awkward.
