      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

    From the Sensual Walks description page: One could verify if the same KFFZ record has the same modification in the other mods. Sensual Walks doesn't host a manual install/uninstall package or any description for uninstall- for the latter no drama as it is easy through Wrye Bash. Wrye Bash Wizard Uninstallers anyone? These days, a good uninstaller would direct the user on the finish page to modifying the Sensual_Walk_Ready_mod.esp in XEdit, or provide an XEdit script for that purpose.

    Moorcock once called Tolkien a crypto-fascist. He has since relented a bit from that stance, but the story behind that starts in Epic Pooh. In there, essentially he admits that Tolkein writes well enough, but the underlying tone in the prose does not ring true. It's an interesting essay which introduces excerpts exhibiting styles from other fantasy writers, but to properly engage in a plausible critique of Tolkien and Lewis, we want more than just 5 pages of blah!

    Yes! Used Conscribe for years, and the current log here us beautiful! There's just one more mystery item remaining- it's relating to the Vilja mod- and another mod Sensual Walks for Female NPCs uninstalled way back when. By way of introduction to the next message, the latter mod had in its package a file 0FemaleVariableWalk_Vilja.kf: Couldn't locate any info in the CS regarding the animation in the NPC record, and there's certainly no entry for it in the Idle Animations dialog. The file is not included in the attached bsa either. But it is seen as a KFFZ (end of this) in the XEdit NPC record: Was it added there just in case Sensual Walks might be installed? Cool in any case. How did it get there is more the question, if the field was not edited directly in XEdit? Now we know why Conscribe is the modder's Message Logger of preference! As a matter of interest, the info regarding animation on the wiki is very old now. To get more of a feel, it may be worth looking at this tutorial, or even the older Russian one some time.

    It's official: Gaming Disorder is real. Gaming Syndrome sounds better doesn't it? So if addicted to the SIMS: a SIMdrome! Huge elliptical galaxy in the making. Are dogs more "intelligent" than cats?

    The Nexus description is, at best, optimistic. All that can be done in the ini configuration file is to turn things off or on. And: Thus one path to debugging them will be paved with analyses of mod list/load order samples along with their corresponding Message Logger messages. Or just look for similar messages in the CSE log after loading the appropriate plugin. With Frans, the Francesco's Leveled Creatures-Items Mod.esm is definitely the master of the other two. And now, after rerunning BOSS and Bashed Patch, the errors are not generated anymore! No explanation for that at all. Sorry. Got one from Dialog Tweaks: And similarly from the CSE log: Referenced below: Record here: And in all its glory in the CS: Requires more research! Edit: The file was there and extracted well enough. Deja Vu! A modder to the rescue: The final warning is from the Sounds of Cyrodiil: Someone posted the same type of messages generated for Better Cities at this thread. Think the messages are harmless, but for the readers, @Vorians, your confirmation is required again. Thanks.

    Does the analysis show that there is something fundamentally flawed in the way the Frans esms function? The scripts run from Francesco's Optional New Items Add-On.esm operate on items belonging to the other esm. What's the solution? Inject the records from Francesco's Leveled Creatures-Items Mod.esm? Or better to combine the esms- which may end up requiring some refactoring? ... Got this one in the message log easily fixed, & reported to Enhanced Weathers: Some other messages are as follows: The source addresses are the only thing to go on, so if anyone gets those in a different context, please post!

    That might be it, thanks. The winning script is run from Francesco's Optional New Items Add-On.esm, and the record is there: The record is referenced in both scripts here- The (losing) Francesco's Leveled Creatures-Items Mod.esm has one ref more: In any case, it's difficult to see how the statement is ever reached when local variable SI is not set to anything. The two files are attached for perusal: Franscpt.7z ... See now that all Oblivion scripts can be rerun with Gamemode- (superseded in Skyrim). Using Fran 5b, for that BAIN wizard doesn't have EditIni, and yep the last line of Francesco's Creatures and Items.ini is wrong, although SILoot is set in one of the scripts to 2 if it was set to 0 initially, but it's unlikely. Might need a better BAIN wizard as well. Will update with results and more messages.

    Here it says: Government-like things- especially diplomacy. The source being this not-so-old anonymous text. It's possible that some emperors think they are the government. Would that make any difference?

    Dug deep into the archives for Trenet's Que reste-t-il de nos amours? Written in 1943 later "anglicised" by Keely Smith in the year of this one's entry into this world: Instrumental variations: Liked these: Michael should have choreographed a dance routine for his brother's version: A much more "modern" but greyscale variation autour la Seine:

    Hah! , yes the other (Lady) Selene is certainly a fan of Skyrim more than Oblivion- here is her avatar- thought she had another one somewhere which looked a bit more like yours- but then it could be another Selene altogether. VOT (funny one) Very Opulent Temple? Violent Outlandish Thug? Voluminous Old Threnody? Virility Over Tact? Answer's in the spoiler, but be careful:
  18. Welcome to TAL - Introduce Yourself!

    Cool site! Couldn't see anything there qualifying for a VOT- folks that delete stuff without issuing prior notice know very little about etiquette! Just curious: Are you the same as Lady Selene? The old Bethsoft forum avatar would have been more you- but the linked one? Edit: Cool music uploads! There was also some very good explore type instrumental stuff downloaded for Oblivion from somewhere. It's out there for sure- but where?

    Fascinating! Here's the screenshot link for anyone wondering- but it's certainly an advantage to know Russian when watching the movies. :P

    Ever tried a Pork Pie? The City and the City is quite well done-although they could have extended the episodes to allow for better immersion/understanding of the setting. ... Is the Mac dying?
  21. BTMod Customization

    Trying out the venerable BTmod's Status Display of Faction with Next Rank: Here how it looks for shortname Factions as per mod package: But in reality, it doesn't look like Beider ever tested it for, e.g. The Order of the Virtuous Blood. Oops! It may be fixable by changing "Next Rank:" to just "Next:" and moving it to the line below. It involves modifying something in the following (scratches head):

    Hope it looks ok on higher resolutions.

    Creative Lab forums have Well, there was a fairish throughput last time I looked. But over the years there were only two knowledgeable folks who actually answered all the queries. Seems like they wanted a change of scenery.
  24. BTMod Customization

    Almost got there, but for Murphy & Co. Oblivion's XML parser being a hybrid one, won't escape special characters as such. and just including a ">" as text bombs out the menu. So we are back to "Next:" for the time being. The right justification worked out, however. In any case it's no big deal, as these edits are overwritten by OXP and others- but the interesting task of writing an XML parser for Oblivion remains.
