Hey everybody! Totally a newbie to the Oblivion modding scene. Recently decided to pick up Oblivion again on the PC (Have always played on console since it first came out) with the intention of modding it to all heck and trying to get a fresh experience out of the game. I used TMM (A mod manager that I use for managing all of my mods in Skyrim) and was hoping I could use this mod manager along with all of the mods I am currently using. And this indeed has worked for most of the mods I have installed. That being said, I am having trouble getting Oblivion XP Update (and it's patch for Kvatch Rebuilt) to actually install properly using TMM. I noticed in the PDF that is in the archive that TMM is not really supported, so I assume this is an intended. That being said, I was hoping someone on here might be able to explain to me how I can get it working without destroying my current installation and all of the associated mods (including Darnified UI) and re-installing everything using WryeBash. (Seeing as I was under the impression that WryeBash was no longer considered the preferred mod manager by the community.) So I guess I am just all turned about, and seeking some support if possible. Thanks in advance for any attention or time that is taken to help me resolve this trouble I am having.
Just a general thread on getting this game on the HDD. There was someone on a Steam thread complaining about 400 kbs. i wish. During peak time here it was down to 100! It was somewhere between 150 and 200 but gets to around 350-400 before setting down to around 230. Windows might also be attempting to update as on this machine it's only last year's version 10.0.14393 Build 14393 as well. Steam have very good servers- is there fallback on a corrupt packet- with this volume of data a lot can escape a parity check.
Scenario You've bought or built a new computer and have moved your hard drives to the new machine. Now Windows won't boot because the motherboard has changed, so you have to re-install everything, but you don't want to re-install some games or programs. You have installed Windows on a new drive and your old boot drive is installed as an extra drive or is accessible with an external enclosure. Solution Load the old registry entries from your old drive so they can be imported into the new registry thus avoiding the need to re-install everything. This procedure will work if you have your programs or games installed on another drive or you copy the old installation to your new drive. Procedure This requires advanced registry editing techniques. Create a restore point before attempting this procedure. A full backup would be prudent as well. If you haven't already, install your old boot drive into the new machine or mount it in an external enclosure so it is accessible from Windows. Run RegEdit. (Start Menu > Run... > type in regedit and click OK) Select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. From the main menu, select File > Load Hive... Navigate to your old boot drive. In my case, it was drive F. Open F:WindowsSystem32config. Scroll through the list and select the SOFTWARE hive. It might be listed in lowercase (software) instead. There is no file extension. Now you will be prompted to give it a name. I like to use "oldsoftware". Expand the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key and you will see a new entry called "oldsoftware"! If the program you want is 32 bit and you have 64 bit Windows, then you'll find those entries under Wow6432Node. Right-click on the key for the program and select Export from the context menu. Repeat for all the keys you want to load into your new registry. Once you're done, scroll up and click on the "oldsoftware" node. Go to File > Unload Hive... It will prompt you for a confirmation, click Yes and close the Registry Editor. Open the registry script(s) in a text editor like Notepad and do a search and replace to change "oldsoftware" to "software". All the entries should now be HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEsoftware... Save the scripts and double-click on each one in turn to import them into the registry. You can also run RegEdit and select File > Import... if you prefer. Make sure that the registry script file only has the registry keys for the programs you wish to restore. Can't Import the Registry Scripts? If you edited the registry script files in an advanced editor like TextPad, you may find you can't import the settings. When you attempt to execute the file or import it into the registry, you get "The specified file is not a registry script". Registry scripts must be in ANSI format for Windows, so check how the files were encoded. For TextPad, you can do this by opening the file and using the Save As... menu option. The encoding is at the bottom of the dialogue box. It's probably saving the file as Unicode - change that to ANSI and you should be all set.
