How do I get a house in Riften? I've done the skooma quest and got some axe as a reward from the jarl, but there's no option to buy a house. What else do I need to do?

I just love how fantastic the game runs and how immersive it is. It really feels like a world to explore and I honestly don't even feel the need to do the main quest. 40 hours in and I've just delivered the horn of jurgen wind caller tongue.gif. Definitely a fantastic game, and GOTY contender

took me over an hour to get past the INTRO!!! got the lockups that freeze the game but the game still played

well, game sound continued in the background...

impatience let to several hard reboots before i found someone else that had the same issue, leaving it for 10+ seconds the game continued from where it was....

then CTD mid character creation

MANY TIMES!

edit: and I don't say this as actually being thankfull.......but thankfully there is a auto save right at character creation, I was getting sick of riding down the hill in the cart! mad.gif

Ok so after Days of trying to figure out what the problem with my FPS is I finally found out what it was.
Using a DNA skyrim.ini and reverting back to the default skyrim.ini is the source of my problems. I found a work-around to the crashing saves after using a DNA skyrim.ini and reverting back to a normal skyrim.ini and that work-around is the source of the FPS drops.
A DNA skyrim.ini has uGridsToLoad=11 at the top of it and obviously after loading a save with the modified skyrim.ini your save cannot run without it. So I just put it at the top of my default skyrim.ini and it makes the save crashing stop. However it does something to the performance of the game because with uGridsToLoad=11 in a default skyrim.ini I get 15-16 FPS on the wagon ride in the intro.
Without it I get 100-110 fps...
So basically what I'm saying is if you have run a DNA skyrim.ini on your current save and need to revert back to the default one you will have to also start a new save file because there is no fix other than the one I tried. The maker of the DNA skyrim.ini has basically said he will not help anyone who isn't using his modified skyrim.ini files.

On the top of the DNA congiurator page they say how to use play saved games after lowering the ugrid setting doh.gif .
http://donotargue.com/cfg-makers/skyrim/
Please go back and read it, he comes out with a new version every day it seems, and there is a solution to the ugrids problem, with a solution there now.

I was using ugrids13 before the STEAM patch, but I'm running 9 now, the new patch gives a massive performance drop, just finally getting it working again, With an outdated DNA config I was using prepatch I lost about 3/4 my framerate. The new LAA workaround doesn't seem to be letting the game use as much RAM as the old one, but has stopped the crashing issues fortunatly.

I believe you are referring to this?

If you are having problems loading savegames (instant crash)Download the files below
(right click save as)
Put them in the main Skyrim install folder -
*\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim

uGrid5.txt
uGrid7.txt
uGrid9.txt
uGrid11.txt
In the main screen open your console with ~ and type "bat uGrid11" without the quotation marks
try to load your savegame again - if it loads re-open your console and type
"bat uGrid5" for default
"bat uGrid7" for 2+ GB System RAM
"bat uGrid9" for 4+ GB System RAM
"bat uGrid11" for 8+ GB System RAM
and save your game. The uGridsToLoad value has now been changed and your current save games should work again.
To ensure it is working correctly quit the game and restart your latest save game.

If so that "Does" fix the crashes but it turns some textures a red color and does not fix the horrid FPS problems I was having.
The only way I found that you could fix the crashes and the red texture bug was to copy uGridsToLoad=11 to my default skyrim.ini, but that didn't fix the horrid FPS problems.
The DNA modified ini makes the game look amazing, but at the cost of corrupting your save file.

Also the comment at the top right now by "bugmenot" does not work for me I still got the red textures.

my problem is Marketh (sp?) I killed the guards cos they wanted to pin the murders on me and now they all want a piece of me. i don't have a save to fall back on, is there a command to lower my bounty so they jail me rather than try and kill me?

I had some trouble there too, but luckily I did have a save from just before things got hot.

When that guy told me he was going to throw me into the mines for life, my first impulse was to murder him before he had the chance. It's lame that he can't be killed. I ended up depopulating the entire crapsack city while the one and only guy I actually wanted to kill kept chasing me around. I was able to reload from the earlier save and just let him throw me in the mines. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The orc down there hits like my grandma. He couldn't even overcome my health regeneration (Normal difficulty, 300 health, wearing no equipment since it was inside prison).

I think it sucks that you can't kill certain NPC's. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
For example, when the Blades asked me to assassinate the only dragon that doesn't KOS non-dragons, who in fact had just recently assisted me in a fight against Alduin . . . well, my character didn't take kindly to it. Lucky for me neither of them is very dangerous, and during the 30 minute battle that followed I was able to gain a level or two before I got bored and left them alone.

Ive learned(also with oblivion) to save every 5 minutes just about....I love the game, had a blast but nothing is more annoying then running through a whole dungeon just to have an npc glitch or an enemy fall into a spot you cant search them for a key or whatever. So...I save constantly.
