FAQ Last updated: June 6, 2020
Please read this before asking any questions. If you feel you have a bug to report, please post it in the comments after verifying that it is indeed a bug and not something mentioned here in the FAQ. Please do not PM me about any issues. I will not respond. That being said, here you will find answers to some common questions and concerns:
• Version 1.0.4 is the latest version and the most stable.
• "Can you put this on PS4?"
No. You can thank the suits over at Sony for that one. • "The courier isn't delivering the notes to me."
This is a problem with your save game and needs to be sorted out independently. It is not an issue with the mod. There are a number of reasons why this could be happening, such as mod conflicts, load order issues, just to name a few. If you want a definitive solution, install Provincial Courier Service and you'll always know where to find him.
• "So and so isn't appearing! What can I do?"
First of all, don't panic. It is recommended to play through this mod on a new save, or a save that has relatively few mods active. The Brotherhood of Old is a very script heavy mod, and the Skyrim scripting engine has a hard time keeping up with everything going on when it's under heavy usage from other mods. You can still play this mod on your heavily modded saves, and most of the time you should be fine, but do be prepared to run into issues where certain NPCs aren't appearing, someone's glitching through the ground, you getting stuck because a quest stage is not firing, and so on. You can try running FallrimTools script cleaner on your saves, I've heard that fixes a lot of problems people are having. https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/5031/
• "Can I install this before I have completed the Dark Brotherhood questline?"
Yes, you can.
• "Nothing happens when I hit Agnar Hollowleg with the Night's Shade Dagger. Is it possible to recruit him?"
The dagger is designed to not work on him. This is a scripted event that is supposed to fail. Agnar will never join the Dark Brotherhood under any circumstances. Believe me, I've tried to convince him and he wasn't having any of it.
• "Can I use this if I've done the "Destroy the Dark Brotherhood!" quest?"
No, sorry. It's not possible at this time.
• "Can I use console commands to skip [insert part here]? Can you tell me what the stage ID is?"
No. You're breaking things. Stop breaking things. If you feel you've run into an issue, make a bug report for the issue you're experiencing. Make sure to include as much detail as possible, including what stage you're currently on in the quest you're doing. I cannot help you if you can't provide me with the necessary information. Please look through the bug reports to see if someone has already reported your issue first, however.
• "This mod adds something in the way of something your mod adds. What can I do?"
I unfortunately don't have time to make a patch for every little incompatibility there may be. If you run into something, please inform me about it and I will add it to the incompatibilities list. There may already be a patch for your issue. If not, you are free to make and post one yourself. Please let me know if you've done so. Currently there is only a patch for Skyrim Sewers, which you can find here on the Nexus.
• "Why haven't you answered by question? Did you get my PM. PLS RESPOND THX"
I'm a one man team. I'm handling everything myself. I work a full time job in addition to numerous other projects and obligations. I physically do not have the time or manpower to get back to each and every one of you. There are a lot of you and only one me. Please follow the appropriate steps if you run into an issue before heading to the comments and my private messages. I don't mean to sound rude... that's just how things are. Thank you for the support. I appreciate you checking out my work.
