It’s The Final Countdown (to release of SRM 2.0)


*ahem* Yes, right, back to the subject of importance. There is no actual countdown but regardless, you have waited. For so very long. Days and nights have been spent waiting. Weeks and months, years and decad- OK not that long, BUT WAIT NO MORE! Because, ladies and gentleladies and princesses and tavern wenches, the wait is over.


Skyrim Romance 2.0 will be released TONIGHT!


Yes, tonight. Though I don’t know what that means for you international time-travelling folks but it will be available within 12 hours. Providing that Mediafire’s uploading behaves. It will be able to be downloaded from the main page as the old version usually was and from a link within a post that will be published when it is uploaded by Mara.

This isn’t actually the download, I’m just passing on the message and informing you to prepare yourselves. And to breathe!

I am of course talking about the new Bishop with his new voice actor, River Kanoff (expect something from him after the release… Not that kind of thing, tut tut.), multitudes of rewritten lines and options, many bug fixes and the ability to recall Karnwyr if you dismiss that mangy old dog, et cetera. However this is not the version with animations! That one is still being created but hey now, I think all the previously mentioned features make up for that, just a little bit. 😉

I repeat, not the animated version! This is just the version with suggestive subtitles for those unmentionable scenes, brand spanking new voice of River Kanoff, and bug fixes.

    Of course it had to be released during the several days I was offline because a power surge fried my Ethernet card (again.. this is the fourth time in five years.. I should just start keeping replacement parts in stock).

    Last night when I seen this I literally SCREAMED! I was SOOO EXCITED! I stayed up waiting to download it once it was posted and accidentally fell asleep waiting for it, haha. Just got home from school and went straight to my computer to go download it and it’s downloading now! I’M SO EXCITED!! I guess the constant months of checking the site day after day have paid off ^-^

    I can’t seem to get Bishop to finally follow. He just says my party is already full, however I don’t have any followers including his wolf

      Be sure to dismiss all followers, including Bishop, before installing the previous Skyrim Romance 2.0

      I suggest using command codes hit `

      put this command in the console

      set playerfollowercount to 0

    This is so good. While I’ll go with the non animated one for now, I’ll download the animated one once it comes out. And~ just upgraded to win 10 so my game for Skyrim is in high~ and it is so damn awesome~! Might just restart to more of a feel for it.

    Alas! :’) I’ve been dying for this update. I’m curious, though: any chance there may be female romance options for a female dragonborn? Or POC romance options? I absolutely adore this mod, and it’d be nice to see some diversity with sexuality & race, y’know?

    • AlassinSane December 2, 2015 at 5:13 am - Reply

      The answer is sorry but no. SRM took a year (two years if you add in River’s revoicing) to make and Forbidden Love is approaching a year of development and still hasn’t had its writing anywhere near completed yet. So these take years out of our lives to make and that is not an avenue or a story that Mara is interested in pursuing. One thing you can count on is that if word of these mods spread, there will be other teams inspired by the format of a follower with a romance story.
      Forbidden Love will be our only focus until its completion, then who knows how many of us will remain? It’ll certainly have racial diversity but as the Forsworn are based on Celtic and Gaelic cultures, of course the majority of their people are Caucasian.

    Well I just finished fixing up my game for this. Updated some mods, uninstalled some others, swapped others to make it better looking and more stable…guess I’ll go straight for this and just use my imagination without animations for now. I’m nervous about Bishop’s new voice becuase I really loved the old one, and it feels like it will give him a whole new personality, but I’m sure River has done a great job and I’ll get used to it in time.

    I’ve really been wanting to play Skyrim again thanks to Fallout, and been waiting on this mod >_<

    If people select the non-animated version, they’ll be able to upgrade to the animated one or will they have to delete everything and re-download the animated one? Kinda curious on that. But that is awesome news concerning the release!

    • AlassinSane December 1, 2015 at 3:51 pm - Reply

      If you download this one and want to upgrade to the animated version when it’s out, all you need to do is uninstall the one you have installed and then install the animations version. In theory nothing should change in your save other than animations now being available.

      • hitgirl19 December 1, 2015 at 4:13 pm - Reply

        So we can’t overwrite the non-animated version to the animated version or we can?

        • AlassinSane December 1, 2015 at 4:17 pm - Reply

          You can. There’ll be more details when the animation version is made and released but what would be the harm anyway? If something goes wrong you can just reinstall the non animation version until there’s a fix.

    Omg. When I first read the title I was like don’t get too exacted it’ll probably be released this weekend. But then I read the post and my god. I even just recently went through all my mods to make sure they were up to date and changed up a bunch of stuff. It’s meant to beeeee <3

    Wonderful! Is there an estimated time frame for the animated version? Im excited to play through this mod again, but I wonder if it’s worth just waiting for the animated version to be finished

    • AlassinSane December 1, 2015 at 1:55 pm - Reply

      We’ve had a setback so I personally wouldn’t guess sooner than a few weeks. Two weeks being the very least.

      • hitgirl19 December 1, 2015 at 4:06 pm - Reply

        I am very excited, but I guess with the animations takes a lot of work. I would still try the non animation at the moment, and wait patiently for the animation coming out. But can’t wait to play it ^o^.

      Mara’s the one who will upload and it will only be “tonight” in 7 hours for her, so I reckon you could get some shut-eye before then. ;D
