[Official] The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Information and Discussion Thread - Page 789

post #7881 of 12885
Hey guys, I've got a quest related problem I'm hoping to get some help with.

I've just started the Companion side quest 'Escaped Criminal', where I have to kill an escaped convict in the Reach.

However, the quest marker has vanished, and the quest has been moved to the completed section, but I have yet to find the criminal at all.
This is currently stopping me from doing any other companion side quests.

Any ideas?

PS - First post in this thread, only had Skyrim for about the past month, and I can safely say it is one of the best games I have ever played, it's just epic tongue.gif

Apart from minor problems like this one... thumb.gif

The amount of things for you to do is incredible, I'm level 32 and I don't think I'm halfway through the main quest line yet.

Also got another question, what are the best Texture MOD's?
Currently using the 2K texture pack with Quality world map.
I'm not looking to add items / quests, I just want to make it look better tongue.gif

thanks a lot smile.gif

First level help desk usually does that (have you reboot) because some users don't reboot their PCs for days/weeks/months at a time and it sometimes does fix things. Like an IE version upgrade that didn't prompt for reboot. Also makes you feel like something is happening while they update their notes. Not that I would know. It's all hypothetical...

I'm pretty sure that's actually useful and good that they do that. I worked the phones once, back in the day (I'm 22 I should have a 'back in the day'...)
There's a reason it's a part of the troubleshooting steps.
I myself have found myself attempting everything from registry hacks to manually restarting services and reinstalling drivers to fix issues that ended up being solved by a simple restart.

It's not suggested cause its smart to try. It's suggested cause its dumb not to try.

Regarding the Water Flickering issue: Thanks to Milamber and Lifeshield, I fixed that weeks ago, right after I made that post.

Seth, Manually set Beta Participation to No, then back to Enabled then Restart Steam.


Regarding the Static Mesh Improvement Mod Update:
Quote:
Version 1.18 March 17, 2012
  • Changed the default Furniture texture to a new very high quality texture that matches vanilla very closely. The old Skyrim HD styles are now install options.
  • Statue of Namira SMIM'd the horrid 2D chains. This changes the loading screen version and in-game version (they use the same mesh: statuenamira.nif).
  • Fixed strange shadows on the Farmhouse 3D ropes. I didn't realize I needed to remove the two "Decal" shader flags for the ropes mesh blocks. Thanks for users reporting the issue.
  • Added an install option for either Farmhouse 3D ropes distance fade or not. The best option is the one that disables the default fading since making some of the mesh disappear at a distance isn't necessary on quality PCs.
  • Removed many unneccesary NiAlphaProperty blocks for the Farmhouse building and walkway meshes. This was done to make the meshes display snow properly for people using the Better Dynamic Snow mod.
  • As a side, I am working with OpticShooter to correct other vanilla game issues his Better Dynamic Snow mod has revealed. I love his mod but it has technical problems solely due to game engine issues. But together we shall overcome.
  • Added 3D rings for the (hopefully) final two signs I missed (Markarth locations).
  • Fixed UV stretching errors, mesh edge turning issues, and vertex welding issues around the Markarth General Goods sign frame (mrksigngeneralgoods01.nif).
  • Fixed UV alignment errors on the back of the Markarth Silver Blood Inn sign (mrksignmrksilverbloodinnsign01.nif).
  • Added a Pullchain smaller 3D rings install option, requested by wiz0floyd.
  • UV improvements to all the SMIM'd furniture to remove a few blurry edges.
  • Fixed minor UV errors caused by the 3DS Max export process for Furniture Square Table (commontablesquare01.nif).
  • Minor improvements to UV mapping for Furniture Round Table (commontableround01.nif).

Simple borderless window and using Afterburner's frame limiter, setting it to 59 stopped annoying first person stutter for me or at least they have it under control. The stutter for me seemed to be happening when the fps went over 60. Vsync wasn't doing its job in a few areas mostly noticeable around Winking Skeever inn in Solitude according to fraps I was getting up to 62 fps which was the cause and after limiting to 59 it was gone.

I have used Vsync since day one and never seen FPS above 60. Not sure why you are...

He stated that the reason is most likely a VRAM issue, it will just fill back up when he kicks off Skyrim hence why i stated a reboot was a silly suggestion. If the factor is hardware limitation then a reboot wont magically fix that....

Don't really have any thing to contribute, just this...

On a certain guild quest that involves a whole cave worth of ghosts my 'toon' was so OP that I decapitated a ghost. Seems like a bug rolleyes.gif Or I'm just that OP...

The head disapeared, the helmet remained. Not sure what happened there.

Also finally got my self a set of deadric armor. At level 51.

Twenty or thirty levels after most everybody else in this thread I agree: OP powering through everything like butter isn't quite as fun after a while smile.gif

Maybe I should switch to glass armor. And a great sword....

lol I decapitated a few ghosts on my char aswell, although they didn't drop anything. Who was getting daedric at level 20?? I don't think I even found a daedric piece till mid 30s and that was a short sword or dagger, nothing special to my char. I rock dragonbone set with daedric long swords now though.
