Oblivion Crash Rant and Learning to Mod Skyrim

So my Oblivion game crashes way too much, and I don't know how to fix it. Skyrim runs fine. Morrowind runs fine. Dragon Age: Origins runs fine. It's so frustrating! So I'm going to learn how to mod Skyrim. I will always love Oblivion, but I plan to start modding Skyrim as well, so that I can enjoy my mods and characters without the game CTDing constantly. As I get better at modding Skyrim, there should be mods for Skyrim on here as well. At least there should be if all goes well. Wish me luck....


  1. I wish you luck with modding Skyrim, and also I hope you will fix your Oblivion too! I believe in you!

  2. Hi Reineke. :) I am working on fixing Oblivion. I removed almost all mods and am slowly adding them back, and checking to see how often it crashes. I don't mind if it does it occasionally, but the way it was before it was hard to play. I think I will get it figured out eventually. Skyrim modding is going to take some time to learn.

  3. Yes, it is very irritating, when your game crash every fiftheen minutes... or even often :(
    In my case the "stability" part of Bevilex' modlist for Oblivion really help me to solve some problems with crushing. Have you tried this guide?
    P.S.: Sorry for my lame English.

  4. Thank you so much for that tip. That should prove very useful. I've started with a clean install (except for my personal mods) and am in the process of getting nice meshes and textures figured out. Bevilex's list is helpful there too. Also, your English is good enough for me. :) No worries.

  5. I am certain your love of modding will shine as it did in Oblivion. Beautiful people are incapable of creating less then wonderful things. *hugs* - Brandy!

  6. Sorry that you're having the struggles with CTDs in Oblivion. I think a lot of us have been down that road... you want to keep playing, but CTDs every 15 minutes wear you down.

    Aside from echoing the Bexilex list for its stability recs, I found that for whatever reason the "4gb Patch" never made a difference for me. What actually worked was altering the EXE with a program called CFF Explorer- there's a video describing the method here:

    But aside from all that, I hope you do have fun modding Skyrim. I think Skyrim, Oblivion and Morrowind can each offer unique and interesting experiences with mods. I'm sure whatever you create will reflect the creativity and quality of your Oblivion mods! :D

  7. Thank you Crackomint. I will check that out soon.

  8. I actually just randomly ended up on your page and after scrolling thru your archive I hope you do pick up skyrim modding. A few of your meshes already come from vanilla skyrim so it wouldn't be too hard to switch over without losing ideas for stuff, I think.
    Plus bodyslide made making mashups so easy!

  9. This is very sad news for me since I won't play Skyrim again, but I hope you're gonna have fun modding it.

    1. Don't worry, Room207. I won't stop modding oblivion. I just want to learn Skyrim as well. I think I may have the crashing under control for Oblivion, and will resume modding it as my health allows. No worries. :)
