[RELz] Oblivion XP WIP

Recommended Posts

File Name: Oblivion XP WIP

File Submitter: AndalayBay

File Submitted: 28 Oct 2017

File Category: Gameplay Changes

 



I have implemented a potential fix for the broken levelup menu for people with high resolution monitors (1440p and above) and I need help testing it. This version also has a number of other fixes, including the nasty first-time levelup bug where people were being prompted to initialize Oblivion XP after levelling up.

 

IMPORTANT: Uninstall any previous version of Ob XP before installing this version. Do NOT make a new save. Uninstall the old version of Oblivion XP, check to make sure all of the old files have been deleted, especially if you use OBMM, and then install the new version. I have moved the menu files around and the old copies may not be cleared out properly if you don't uninstall first. If you use BAIN, it would be fine, but other methods will require that you uninstall first, so it's better to do it for all installation methods.

 

NOTE: If you load your saved game and are presented with a blank levelup menu, just click DONE and then immediately load your saved game again. Then open the levelup menu and level up your character. This is another symptom of the bug and it will be fixed once you reload your game and level up.

I've added a note about uninstalling previous versions first. Sorry, I didn't think to mention this because I use BAIN. :) Even if you use BAIN, it would be a good idea to uninstall first, although you'll have to run BOSS to sort your load order again.

Not certain what you mean by 4k. 

I'm running the same resolution as RavenMind,and Oblivion xp works perfectly.

The Level Up screen is not the same as the vanilla character screen.  You can see teh skills to be levelled up now.

The screen was transparent before ,making it nigh on impossible to read.

Upon first levelling up, the screen didn't restart.

Transparent? No one has ever reported that before. I suspect you had an installation issue.

4K = 4x1024 = 4096 and above. 4096x2304 is a 4K display, for example. People have found that even 1440p doesn't work.

My monitors are 1920x1200, so I know that works fine. I need someone with a higher resolution than that to let me know if my fix works. :)

Thanks for confirming the other fixes, guys. :)

@Malonn are you stalking me? And now you have realized why I asked to merge broken armor and the gate walking mod; but also why I asked to merge the inebriation fix



Btw,  YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE MALONN. AND YOU LEFT OOO LIKE THAT, IT BECAME THE SAME THING YOU SWORE TO DESTROY
A HUGE NUMBER OF SCRIPTING BUGS

Wait, Combat Omega got released? Huh. I was under the impression it was a homebrew that permissions were never obtained for. Someone sent it to me (unsolicited) a while back. Of course she also claimed to be running over 1000 mods with careful xEdit edits & Gecko merges...  Seeing that Fienix is the submitter makes me think perms were obtained though. I just deleted the thing and moved on. How do you like it anon1?

Also, I think Malonn was modifying for personal use anyway. I think it's awful nice of him to have considered sharing his tweaks & modifications as it is. :)

Probably think I'm stalking you now too? LOL I had another guy accuse me of that on Nexus, but we just happened to be following the same mods. :P

I saw your exchange, and Fienyx said he released it. And he added that, given he never took merit of any of the content inside the merged mod, asking for permission, also from authors that are no more on the community, makes no sense.

Must've been someone else. I haven't had any exchanges with Fienyx that were anything but pleasant that I can recall, and nothing about that mod. I wasn't even aware he was connected to it. (Hence, my surprise.) The gal who told me about it just said it was a mashup of a bunch of different combat mods, and left me with the impression that she made it. Unless I'm thinking of something completely different. I really don't have any opinions on the mod or its use of other assets one way or the other. Haven't tried it, don't know what's in it, and don't have time to care quite frankly. :P  Just surprised that it was available for download somewhere and was wondering what you thought of it. (Like was it worth trying.) That's all. :)

Ah, good find! I didn't remember that conversation. The mashup must be something else I was thinking of then. It was definitely a female, the exchange was via PM, and she sent me a link to Dropbox or Google. I think I see where the confusion about perms is. When he said, "Just like my current copy of CombatOmega. Has mods with no/denied permissions." I wasn't thinking that was the version he had uploaded to LL, but his personal copy, and since he already said he wouldn't upload his "COBL Life" compilation due to denied perms, I figured he was a decent guy. I do take mod piracy seriously though, I just reported one that somebody uploaded to Nexus that was a word for word, CRC matching ripoff of another mod that had been on there for years, even though I greatly dislike the original mod author & most of their work, and lo & behold, it's been taken down. LOL, Come to think of it, that's how Andalay & I met - somebody trying to rip off All Natural. Not like I'm a "Perm Nazi", I just don't like seeing other peoples hard work used for someone else's gain.

I get the feeling you think I'm criticizing his uploading of Combat Omega, or are doubting he has proper permissions. I'm not. As I said, I don't know enough about it to have an opinion, nor the time/desire to care right now. I would still like to know what you thought of it though, so when I regain the time/desire I can add it to my list of mods to potentially play with.

And with that, I'm going to take some more cold medicine & head off to bed. 'night! :)

@Andaylaybay. Thanks. 

Lol, no I'm not stalking you.  There are key sites if you're into Bethesda game modding.  Nexus is a major one, this is one... I haven't seen you on AFK--you should go there too.  Good Oblivion stuff and some knowledgeable folks.

 

As for OOO, I just got an itch one day to fix the container scripts.  WalkerInShadows asked to merge it and in the process had questions.  So I helped.  But I never intended to be the official OOO maintainer.  I'm getting my personal copy squared away.  I'll still contribute to OOO, it's just the devotion of my time jumps from project to project (personal stuff mostly).
