Skyrim Romance Mod 1.1 Beta Release!

Hello Everyone,

I have wonderful news!  I have a link below that is an updated version of the original Skyrim Romance.  I have fixed most of the bugs and errors.  This updated version has now set up Skyrim Romance Mod for animations, FINALLY.  So I will be incorporating animations in following updates.  These animations will be using Loverslab framework and will have intimate and sex animations.

This is a Beta Version!!!  It isn’t packed yet by a BSA.  If you want to download it please follow instructions below before download.


1) Dismiss Bishop in game.

2) Go to your Data Folder deleted Bishop.eps and Bishop.bsa

3)Install link below.

4)Manual Installation: Download and install 7zip. Once you have downloaded the mod, open the archive (.zip) with 7zip, and click extract. Extract the files so that the files (esp.) and the folders (meshes, textures, sounds, etc.) are in the Skyrim data folder (\Games\Steam\SteamApps\Common\Skyrim\Data). Activate the mod through your preferred launcher by ticking the checkbox next to the esp/esm.

5) Play Beta Test Version.

Download New Skyrim Romance Mod 1.1 here!!!

6) If anyone wants to help me Beta test this version please send me a report to let me know if it works and I will credit you.  Also if anyone is willing to help me pack this successfully into a BSA and convert the audio files into fuz.  I will credit you on the website as a Mod Editor.

Here are the following changes I have made to Skyrim Romance Mod.

1) I have made Bishop a standard follower, this makes using other mods such as Amazing Follower Tweaks and Ultimate Follower Overhaul able to be used successfully with Bishop.

2) I have removed all content that was taken from the old mod Bishop’s Romance from The Gibberlings Three Forum.  I still want to credit this old mod because it inspired me.  I had taken 4 lines of my favorite description flirts, but I have removed them, because Skyrim Romance doesn’t need them.  If anyone see’s anything else from that mod in Skyrim Romance please inform me so I can remove it!

3) I have fixed spelling errors and bugs.

4)Fixed Marriage Quest not completing.

5) Fixed Thorn dialogue coming up in random places.

That’s all for now!

Thank you,

Mara <3

    Hi, I love this mod but I have the same problem as some of the others: Bishop teleports next to me(into me) over and over again everytime I enter or leave a house/city/dungeon. And I can’t make im follow me. But overall it’s a great mod!

      That version is about to be unsupported. Wait and see if the new one works for you.

    I have a problem. I downloaded this Beta Release before and all was fine. But now, I started new and I can’t make Bishop to my follower. I only can flirt with him and ask him something. All the other things are working perfect. Only the thing with Bishop. I deleted this mod and installed it new, but without luck. The same problem as before.
    What can I do?

    P.s. Sorry, if there are some mistakes. I’m german 😀

    Sorry didn’t mean to DP but Bishop keeps being summoned next to me every 10 seconds, even though I haven’t started the quest yet is there anyway to fix that ….

    The mod overwrites my general body textures for men, so they look different compared to everyone else. Is there a way to have my textures overwrite the mod’s?

    • AlassinSane August 9, 2015 at 8:26 am - Reply

      @Body Textures Anonymous

      Try installing your body textures after installing this mod. Other than that, I don’t think so as they are attached and built into the mod itself.

    Does this update come with animations or is it prepared for animations in future updates?

    @ SoS Anonymous, yes it works, it looks very nice if you add “SOS_Leito_Schlongs_Addon v1.0.1” with hair

    Does this work with Schlongs of Skyrim? (SoS)

    Apparently captcha on Media Fire hates me, and never loads correctly, there’s always an error, making the download impossible 🙁 Is there no other source to download from?

    Im trying your beta. I moved the folders and Bishop.esp to the data folder. But his hair texture doesn’t show, and theres no dialogue option. Did I load it wrong?

    I told Bishop to follow me and he said, “as my lady commands” but he always heads back to Riverwood. I tried conjuring him a few times and he’ll stick around long enough to talk to me but then he heads off, usually in sneak mode.

    Every time I try to enter the blue crystal ball my game completely freezes and I have to do a reboot.. Also Bishop disappeared after I finished building up Winstaad manor with a concert to castle mod.. But my main problem is just the crystal ball freeze issue

    Oh, I guess I totally forgot to mention this. You should try out BSAopt. It works great for packing and unpacking BSA files:
    I already have it, so if you need help with using it, or if you want me to download your files, convert them, and then send them back as a BSA, i can do that, but it is really easy to use yourself.

    The only “issue” I still have is that the conversation question regarding the thieves outside of Falkreath still appears, despite the fact that I haven’t “met” them yet. Not a big deal to me though!

    The link here does not seem to work anymore. Does the link on the front page have this update?

  21. Noma February 23, 2015 at 5:55 pm - Reply

    How long does it take Bishop to fall in love with you, is there any tricks I could do to deepen our relationship besides completing quests together? I have already met all the other mod’s persons such as Casavir, Neeshka etc. And why does Bishop constantly change between his regular armor and the Grand Ball costume? Also, when I flirt with him and give him a kiss on the cheek and he wants to show his own way to handle the situation, he gives me a hug and then the conversation menu disappears, I can no more talk to Bishop nor Karnwyr and I can’t draw my weapons. Waiting, reloading doesn’t help nor does everytime the fast travel, I have to travel to a big city like Windhelm and it starts working again. Any ideas?

      There is a Skyrim Romance Guide on the last page that can help you! 🙂

    This is the most wonderful mod :3 I am an active romance novel reader and this is just a dream come true for me. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
    Keep it up <3

    and man those animation are gonna be bad..ass…

  23. Jolanta February 20, 2015 at 2:15 am - Reply

    @ Tynalia, the first time it was happened to me too. Try to finish the talks with the other characters first then after start to talk to Casavir then go shopping after shoping get the whole conversation with Casavir and Bishop tell Casavir you are ready and you will be in front of the Ball.

    Looking forward to the version that integrates the “loverslab” framework :p

    Please help. I love the story from this mod. I have tried both versions of the mod and still can’t get to the Grand Ball. I have started my game over and taken out several mods. I have script extender updated and am already using CTD and Memory patch ENBoost. Are there any patches coming for the blue palace? It was running fine until then. I was having so much fun playing through this story but I’m stuck.

  26. AdoringFan February 15, 2015 at 4:46 pm - Reply

    That sounds like the same problem I’ve been having. I’m currently sticking with the original version since the conversation topics are still there, maybe that will help till a new update comes out.

    I did dismiss Bishop in the game that I had used him in before, but now I’m using him in a brand new game with no followers. Also, I looked and in my active effects there are 2 effects for him, both are the summon spells. I think the spell is constantly making him teleport to me, I had to disable his ID to get it to stop. I tried enabling him again too, it didn’t work.

  28. Solora Solis February 15, 2015 at 2:21 am - Reply

    Hello, I love this mod, but after I updated Bishop keeps teleporting next to me every time I load a new area or sometimes every 2 seconds 🙁 also, after starting his quest he will not follow me and does not have a follow/dismiss option, only the “can i ask you something” and Flirt options. Please help, I love this mod and do not want to uninstall xD!

    • Mara February 15, 2015 at 2:48 am - Reply

      Did you dismiss Bishop before you installed the update. Try setting your follower count to 0.

    The mod is awesome, but did notice my game crashes on the way to the blue palace with the mod installed is it compatible with the JK Solitude mod?

    Oh, forgot to tell you. Please add slap animation in update if you would. I like Bishop. But sometime I really want to slap him when he calls me wench. Right now, all I can do effectively to him is shouting at him. ” Fus Ro Dah, Bishop! “

    I don’t mean to rush your work. When will the new version be finished? I’m sorry if asking this bug you.

      I think before we progress we should get Bishop a new voice actor 🙂

    Was that bug from the dialogue with bishop when you are about to ride the dragon on the main quest that only showed up after you defeated alduin corrected?

    Dear Mara,
    The Thorn dialogue still coming in some places…………………after the dialog “I will escort you to the Rift’s forests..” I would love Bishop would do it in some way.
    warm regards !

    I’m not sure if my previous post went through since I don’t see it on the page even after refreshing.

    Anyway, I’m loving the mod, but I seem to have a problem with this new update. Starting a new game, it seems that after the initial conversation with Bishop, I’m only left with two topics: “Can I ask you something?” and the flirt options. I can’t get him to follow me and he just sticks around Riverwood, even after I rescue his wolf. This also happens updating with an older save: I dismiss Bishop, install the updated files, loaded up the game, and I’m stuck with the same two topics I mentioned earlier.

    Strangely enough, once I put back the old .esp file, everything works like it should, but I don’t get the fixes that came with the update.

    Hi, I’m loving the mod so far, it just seems like this new update broke Bishop for me. Starting a new game, after the initial conversation with Bishop, my only dialogue options are “Can I ask you something?” and the flirt options. I can’t get him to follow me and he just stays in Riverwood. If I go back to the first version of the mod, everything works like they should.

    • Mara February 11, 2015 at 12:45 pm - Reply

      Ok Thank you so much for letting me know! I’m going to keep working on it!

      I’m having the exact same issue. Was there any fix to the problem that you know of?

  36. Peep February 10, 2015 at 3:55 pm - Reply

    It definitely is something I’d looove to play. Vilkas was always my favourite companion in-game, and it always bothered me how little actual interaction there is with him (or any other companion). So yah! 😀 But also, I absolutely love Bishop and this mod, and I am super excited for future updates with animations and the like! 🙂

  37. Michael Pelland February 9, 2015 at 1:27 pm - Reply

    Kk giving your Beta test a try so I’ll notify you on bugs and problems. So far only came across one but was easily fixed; upon reloading the game (even though you dismissed Bishop) he spawns right next to you (my guess is the teleportation bug). Upon talking to him and asking him to follow me I noticed he wasn’t wearing the gear I gave him and asking to trade didn’t open new menu’s. However upon fast traveling somewhere it fixed the problem.

    I would suggest anyone having problems with him on this subject fast travel somewhere and it should auto correct.

  39. Peep February 9, 2015 at 2:24 am - Reply

    Do you think it would be possible to create something similar for pre-existing characters in the game? Like, Vilkas for instance… Get a voice actor to record over his old dialogue and create new, and then add a more elaborate storyline revolving around marriage and so on. That would be really interesting!

    Dear Mara,
    Idid the “auriels bow quest” which I had to do only with Serana. I told Bishop he has to wait but after I finished the quest Bishop had no “follow me” when I spoke to him an he walked away. What shell I do ?

    Sweet! Don’t think I’ll download this till’ its finished though. 🙁 .. I actually still have the old romance mod installed (And to further explain I don’t know if deleting it would screw my save files up.)

    I just happened to find this mod and it looks fun. I will be happy to test it with the update for you. It looks like you’ve been through a lot to get this mod out there and I am so glad you didn’t give up! I have a fuz tool I use for unpacking audio, I’ll see if it works both ways.

    Yay, I can’t wait for future updates with animations! You’re doing a fantastic job Mara, I’d say it’s a good thing that this mod isn’t on Nexus anymore too, everyone there seems to be a bunch of prudes whenever Loverslab is mentioned. Thank you to you and the team for your hard work.

    Sorry, the game was not crashing (CTD) before I added it. Again apologies for the mess up being reviewing a lot of other mods.

    I noticed in a few spots the game crashes to desktop not sure if it is because of the mod or something else. Will note that it was doing this before I dowloaded and tried the beta, maybe some insight on the matter might help me figure things out. I am glad to see you continuing the mod despite the hate and bashing. Kudos to you Mara.

    I wish there was a storyline for Thorn. I think it would be interesting because of his and Bishop’s relationship.

    I love this mod. It makes skyrim so much better. I do have a question about the update. Do we have to have the lovers lab mod already installed for the update to work properly or is it included in the update?

      This release is only a update of the original mod 🙂 Animations will come later.

    I have to say, it is probably just as well you are off the nexus and a free agent in this. They really disapprove of even mentioning the LoversLab website. “The site which shall not be named” etc. Which really blows since they also have some really good mods, and I don’t mean just the adult ones. Regardless. And, please keep being awesome.
