Skyrim Romance Mod 2.0 Released!!!

Hello Everyone!

It is here at last!!! Thank you everyone for being so patient and supportive of my team and myself! We have been working very hard to get this new version as close to perfection as possible. A lot of bugs and misspellings have been fixed. In addition so much dialogue has been rewritten and added for your enjoyment! It’s been a year since the first release of Skyrim Romance 1.0, a lot has happened since that time. Through my journey I have gained amazing friends and seen their talent come to life in our projects we build together. Each one of them are dear to my heart and I couldn’t have done it without their help, support and friendship.

I want to give a very special Thank You to my Bishop voice actor River Kanoff who has dedicated countless hours and outstanding talent to Skyrim Romance. He has brought Bishop to life in ways I never thought possible, through his hard work and dedication he inspired me to give Skyrim Romance 2.0 my all.

Additional Credits and Info

Over 100 new characters.
Over 3000 lines of fully voiced dialogue.
High quality audio
Q: Is this for male or female player characters?
A: This is for female player characters. You can play as a male, but you will be referred to as female (being called ‘My lady’, etc.)
Q: Are the romance options male or female?
A: The romance options are male. The female characters are there to act as rivals for the player character.
Q: Will there be a version for straight male player characters?
A: Eventually. The focus is for female characters who are attracted to males for now, as they have absolutely nothing as far as decent male companions go. Those who are attracted to females already have a large number of mods catering to them, so they will have to wait.

To answer a few questions…
Q: I’m stuck at the Ball loading screen it’s frozen.
A: If you are getting infinite black/loading screens going to the Ball or any other part of the mod then the problem is not the mod itself it is a problem with your Skyrim hanging on loading resources. This mod has some extra textures and meshes that can prove to be too much for your installation if you run other mods. This is a known problem with Skyrim and it’s memory-handling. Fear not though – there is a solution if you read on!
The solution is to download SKSE and turn on the memory patch.
Download it here:
Follow these instructions for installation:
Q: Bishop isn’t following me!
A: Try dismissing your other followers
hit your “`” key to bring up the console commands then type
set playerfollowercount to
Q: Do I need Karnwyr to advance the relationship or make Bishop follow me?
A: No, you don’t need Karnwyr to make Bishop follow you or advance the relationship.
Q: I’m flirting with Bishop but nothing is happening.
A: Turn on your subtitles and read it like a romance novel.
Q: Is there going to be a version for guys?
A: Someday I will make a version for guys.
Q: Can I be apart of your team too?
A: Absolutely! We would love for you to get involved and be apart of our team!
Q: Are there going to be any in-depth romances like Bishop? Like with Cael or Casavir?
A: Yes, Cael is out next in-depth romance.

Have a wonderful time playing Skyrim Romance!!!!

    Love this mod! Can’t wait for the animated version. Oh yeah, I was also wondering if this mod does conflict with other mods. I use a lot of mods so just tell me which ones I should disable. ^^

    • Iris January 1, 2017 at 6:40 am - Reply

      hey there! ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s incompatible with open cities. any kind of follower mod ( ufo, eff, aft etc ) is most likely to conflict as well. Some people have reported that relationship dialogue overhaul also could conflict.

      That’s all I can think of right now. Should you have any problems, try to disable some mods yourself and if you do find the culprit one, please let us know ^-^

    Hey great mod! Umm I have a small issue. Okay so when I first started it up to find Bishop in riverwood, I try to talk to him but there’s no dialogue options. Is this mod not compatible with extensive follower framework? Because I use it o have more followers and what not lol

    Just wondering if it was incompatible with any other mods.

    Hey, Iยดve just started playing this most beautiful and charming mod, and I wanted to know, if the dialogs of Version 1 are anywhere availiable? It would be really interesting for me to see the progress the team made.

    • AlassinSane June 15, 2016 at 2:53 pm - Reply

      Only on YouTube. I’d suggest looking at Grim Boozed’s playthroughs, he did both versions of the mod.

    I spent a long time looking through Nexus for a male follower with similar features as Sofia, the funny full voiced follower, who you have to get to know and spend time with to able to marry her. And all I could find was the usual, Skyrim voiced beafheads, or awesome yet non marriable companions. I didn’t want my special girl to marry a beefhead! She is better than that.

    I randomly came up to Skyrim Romance, and now I am so happy I did. Thank you loads for making this!

  6. Hitgirl19 December 12, 2015 at 5:55 pm - Reply

    I honestly loved the new mid, and for me I couldn’t stop blushing at some parts. But there was one bug but I was laughing out loud, it was when I was at Makarth and I noticed Karnywr disappear. I thought that he ran away but in fact he was still at the bandits where he was attacking a wolf in the cage. I couldn’t stop laughing about it.
    And I have also another bug, when I arrived at the Grand crystal ball before I got in, I saw Bishop walking away, so I was kinda confused and when I finished talking with Casavir inside, Bishop didn’t appear. So I waited and I tried reloading the page but Bishop didn’t appear. So it was confusing. But other then that I love the new mod. Thank you Mara, can’t wait for the animated version >_^

    I’d just like to say that River may continue to add dialogue to this mod and I’d totally be okay with that ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sometimes I like the new bishop, but sometimes i miss the old one. I love the both ones, cant lie. The new voice makes him so different. It feels the new dialogue lines and everything makes him a new man.River made a wonderful work. The new battle lines make me puke a rainbow everytime. The first time I heard “Don’t touch her! She is mine!” my heart skip a beat. The only thing i miss is the intonation of the old one. Maybe, it is just because i am brazilian and etc, BUT I really miss the old intonation. The flirting of the new bishop sound too natural. The old one make it a little bit( i mean a lot) more obvious he had little dirty thoughts. Like i said, it is amazing, anyway. I don’t now if i’d change the new one for the older. Maybe its just the transition period, but still, i loved everything so much i can’t say it. Thank you Mara. I do thank you from the deep of my heart. I hope i can join the project, once i learn coding a little bit more xD

    Shame, but alright, I’ll have a look at the workaround info. Thx for the help. ^_^

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned and since it is now after 3am for me I don’t have time to search through all the posts, but I wanted get this out there. The completionist in me found that due to rewrites for the use of Cragslane Cavern as the location for the Karnwyr rescue mission it makes becoming thane of Riften impossible. The quest to clean out the scooma dealers is no longer recognized. It is of course possible to complete that portion of the thane quest before installing SRM but you would either have to do the quest line immediately so you could then take Bishop on the journey with you which would be extremely difficult due to the low level or do a large amount to the adventure without Bishop to gain levels before attempting the Riften quest line which is of course a cryin shame. Is there any possible way of fixing this?

        Ah yes, this bug. Not fixable. The quest itself is very buggy without our mod and the only workaround is through console commands. The method is detailed in the bugs section of this page:!

    As excited as I’ve been for this mod,I don’t get what I’m supposed to do and how to follow things. What do i do/am supposed to do in order?

    • AlassinSane December 6, 2015 at 1:37 pm - Reply

      Go to Riverwood and meet Bishop where he’s standing outside the Sleeping Giant Inn. Then do what you want, he’s a follower who comments on things and provides conversation. You’ll find further encounters in cities, some of which advance the romance. Download the guide on the main page.

    • Fiona December 6, 2015 at 1:48 pm - Reply

      On the homepage theres a guide you can download which will tell you exactly what to do.

      Basically the characters that move the story along are

      Neeshka (Bannered mare in Whiterun)

      Casavir (Solitude)

      Cael (Markarth)

      I found after meeting one of these people, some new dialogue is available and moves the story along .. doesnt matter what order you meet them in, plus there are other npcs who you can meet but will not make a difference to the story (some in Riften, Riverwood etc)

      Honestly though, the best experience with this mod is not to rush through it, he has so many lines of dialogue for different areas and you will probably miss a lot if you dont treat him as a regular follower!

      Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

          That word is not mentioned on this page but even so, give them a break. You made two typos yourself in your comment, made the ellipses far too long in both cases and missed out a full stop on your last comment.
          Be an example rather than nitpicking on others, you have no idea how someone may not be able to help it and generally it brings the grammatically incorrect person down. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was just wondering..*kind of spoiler i think*..

    in the previous version of skyrim romance, there was a bug where Bishop and you would have some banter before setting of on odahviing to skuldafn to defeat Alduin. But this banter would only trigger in dragonsreach after you have already defeated alduin. Is this part taken out of the mod or am i encoutering another bug? Because no banter is triggering here.. Thanks in advance.

    • AlassinSane December 6, 2015 at 4:56 am - Reply

      I’ve heard enthusiasm about the new Bishop’s Skuldafn dialogue so it could be a bug. I have never advanced that far along the main quests so I’m afraid you’ll have to wait for someone who knows more to help you!

      • iris December 6, 2015 at 6:50 am - Reply

        Thank you for your reply. Even after defeating alduin the dialogue still wont trigger..bummer ๐Ÿ™ i was really hoping this bug would be fixed..

      If you mean try on all the dresses before making your mind up, then yes!

      If you mean changing your dress to one already in your inventory .. then yes!!

      I personally have the elven dresses mod (wedding and mourning dress) and i always change into that before going to the ball (i find the dresses in the mod make my characters face a different color to her body)

      • Kvp December 5, 2015 at 9:46 pm - Reply

        I actually ment to change the dress models to ones that fit unp body, because some of the mod dresses show a little bit more than they should

    ok, so as soon as i saw the update i downloaded it immediately. on the first SR my favorite character was Casavir. this white holy paladin was so inviting and i really wanted to try corrupting the hells out of him.
    now on meeting the new bishop im so happy there is more banter and more options to respond to him. i also love when in combat how bishop will shout taunts and protect you through the battle. “hurt her, and i’ll kill you!” is such a flattering thing to hear when you are surrounded by Aldmeri soliders.

    i was hoping there would be the same with Casavir or at least make him an optional follower like he himself says in the winking skeever. I’d love to know more about casavir.
    Also during the Grand crystal ball bishop didnt crash the party.
    back to Bishop.., i really like the new bishop, hes more manly and River Kanoff has truely breathed life into a once cold and robotic character.
    keep up the great work guys xxx

  20. Morgan December 3, 2015 at 6:16 pm - Reply

    Here’s a list of bugs I’ve found and a work around until it gets a fix for people who came here probably looking for fixes. Bishops dialog not triggering, I jumped back and forth between doing quests and returning before the trigger hit. Honestly don’t use commands, I tried it doesn’t work. Something triggers the wolf to appear and using commands won’t get you anywhere by setting the stage. In Cael’s village don’t ask him how it feels to be out of his bonds, makes him teleport and Bishop’s scene would not trigger after. During the ball Bishop wouldn’t barge in, just teleport him in. He will run out change then run back and it continues like normal. Bishop still tags on combat taunts so you can’t click on dialog options. Using your character, hit him (I usually just punch him or bash him) he’ll grunt and it will clear it to where you can speak with him again. It did it in the first version also, he may just be a kink that gets off on it. Don’t judge him. Skipping through dialog seems to cause a little bit of issues with things not triggering right, I suggest not skipping through during scenes that progress the mod. I didn’t hit the bug with the marriage not working, but I did get one where the quests would not show in the journal. I don’t know if it’s a bug or not. Hopefully this helps some of you coming to find some fixes!

      I only have one bug .. once ive done the ballroom scene with Casavir and Bishop.

      If i try running from the blue palace to the other end of Solitude i CTD every single time.

      It happens about halfway to the exit of Solitude but if i fast travel from the blue palace to the entrance of Solitude its fine … most strange

      • Morgan December 3, 2015 at 8:05 pm - Reply

        It may have nothing to do with the mod, or perhaps it’s Casivir causing it. Did you try waiting an hour? Maybe giving him enough time to walk his bum in to the inn will stop it.

        • Fiona December 3, 2015 at 9:35 pm - Reply

          I thought that at first … when im not doing the ballroom part of the mod i dont ctd whatsoever in Solitude … i also tried waiting a while, but it ctd’d while i was just standing there, so it seems that after a set time of coming out of the ballroom place, it crashes unless i fast travel to the beginning of solitude … weird huh?

          • Morgan December 3, 2015 at 9:50 pm - Reply

            That is weird. I’ve never CTD with either versions, not even any conflicts with any other of my mods and I’m running 216. That’s really strange.

    So I’m having a crazy error where I can only interact with npcs from this mod. As in the activate option and name doesn’t even show up on vanilla npcs when I move my mouse over them. I started this mod in an old save and I haven’t tried it with a new game yet. But the weirdest part is that it happens randomly. Like I played the mod for a few minutes the first attempt before the vanilla npcs bugged out, so I loaded up my save again and it took about an hour or so for the error to happen the second time. Not sure if it makes a difference but I’m using mod organizer with aft, perma, and asis. I ran the patches after installing this because I also updated usleep, ccor, and frostfall.

    I’m guessing I’m the only one seeing this so far? So weird lol. I like all the changes that I’ve seen in the this version so far though compared to v1. Nice work ๐Ÿ™‚

    • aeonevangela December 4, 2015 at 2:12 pm - Reply

      I figured out the problem was with my asis patch. In case anyone else runs into the same issue – I just upgraded to the latest asis, turned off the automatic perks option, and also made a merged patch in tesvedit (not sure if that last part actually mattered, but meh).

    River’s version is the best by FAR! The old Bishop really irritated me with all the whining he did but I’m loving everything about this one, the new dialogue is fantastic and I think River’s voice is perfect :). Although, I also have the same issue with Bishop being OP, he flies onto the scene like a superhero and kills everyone in one shot, lol.

    I have to say again just how wonderful this mod is and thank you for all the hard work that went into it!

    I LOVE this mod, although I’m nit really a fan of River Kanoff tbh.
    His voice sounds a bit too old for Bishop in my opinion and I thought that the last voice fitted Bishop perfectly. But I love the new dialogue and am sure I’ll get used to it.
    Can’t wait for the animated version!

  25. Sajiri December 3, 2015 at 2:17 pm - Reply

    While I was having a hard time getting used to the voice, once I started hearing Bishop yelling things like ‘if you hurt her I’ll kill you!’ when Im getting attacked I admit, I did start to swoon a little…but then get annoyed as he seemed to teleport 10 metres across the ground to decapitate something with a dagger before I could even cast a spell. It does feel like he’s mildly overpowered, unless it’s just my game. He seems to be one shotting everything with his knife. I don’t recall this happening in the old version.

    I ended up having to restarted again because of a bug in my game, and then my husband and friends dragged me onto league of legends for the rest of the night so I havent managed to get far yet, but I’m really enjoying this update and can already tell all the work that’s been put into it. Thankyou!

        I believe you can probably do anything! ๐Ÿ˜€ But no pressure! I was a little bummed about it just because it is a really funny scene and I love when Bishop pummels the little skeever off his high horse! But you obviously did a lot of work on this mod and it is amazing! I think most of us are reasonable enough that we won’t be mad at you for a few mistakes. Creating a good mod is really tough, and there’s always going to be something that doesn’t work out how you want it. Despite that, though, you have made (in my humble opinion) one of the BEST mods the in the Skyrim modding community EVER! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi! I’m loving the changes. I had the weird bug where Bishop wasn’t talking. I moved it up in the load order and I no longer have that problem. One issue I’m having is pretty hilarious: Bishop runs the hell away whenever an enemy is nearby. Here’s proof:

    All that posturing and nothing to show for it, eh Bishop? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Enjoyed this version so much. The new dialogue had me laughing for hours. Not to mention that all the scripted events actually worked this time compared to version 1(ie. the ballroom incident). Only problem I had was sometimes I would talk to Bishop and the dialogue options would be there, but it was like something was blocking me from pressing the options. Was fixed by either loading into another area or loading the save over again for some reason. Definitely wasn’t game breaking for me though and could’ve been something with the follower mod I have. Also was able to marry Bishop on a character who was fairly new(lvl8).

      Yeah, i noticed that happens if he says a line when im too far away from him or if he says something while im talking to someone else

    I was able to fix my problem with Bishop not talking/ quest not starting. I uninstalled the mod, went back in and saved, came back out and reinstalled the mod. Then when I went back to the game everything worked fine! ๐Ÿ™‚ Just wanted to post this in case anyone else had the same problem. Can’t promise it’ll work for you, but it did for me.

      Nothing’s wrong, thats as far as you can get with Cael in this mod … the new mod “Forbidden Love” is all about Cael but is a huge project so i’m guessing will be a while before it’s out!

    So I downloaded 2.0 and I am loving it, until I cannot get Bishop to follow me. I have done the console command and still nothing. I really really REALLY want Bishop. The new lines are wonderful and cracking me up!!! I cannot wait to hear him say, ” Careful Ladyship, don’t go stomping around like a swamp boar!” However to do that I nee him to follow me. Does anyone have any idea what I can do to perhaps force him to follow me?

          Just keep playing and returning to him, he eventually trigger for me once I hit a level 7. Just go do a some side quests and return after a little bit.

            Thanks Morgan. I got the idea to run to Whiterun and see if I could get someone else to follow me. Checking to see if it was just his Hotness or if it was everyone. Apparently, it’s just him. Waiting until level 7, I can do that. Thank you again.

    Did…did my comment even post?

    In short: is anyone else experiencing the very frustrating situation of not being able to get the framework required for the animated version as the “site that shall not be named” is down? (Sorry if my last comment did actually post. Sometimes I am bad with computers.)

    • Stevihj December 3, 2015 at 9:32 am - Reply

      LL went down yesterday while I was on it. I am hoping it was just a server crash on their host site as this rarely happens with them.

    Hi, so, SUPER psyched to be able to play 2.0. I swear I started checking the site 3-5 times a day hoping to see that it was released. (Thanks a bunch for all the work you’ve put into this guys!)

    I’m actually wondering, however, if anyone else has found themselves unable to access the “site that shall not be named”? I really want to use the animated version of SRM, but cannot actually get the framework required. I couldn’t get on eiother yesterday or the day before either. Just want to make sure it isn’t just me experiencing this super aggravating situation.

        Ok, so i did a speed run to see if i can get the complete thing working …

        once i made sure to visit Neeshka, Casavir and Cael i fast travelled to western watchtower near Whiterun and ran around the wilderness .. he will not initiate further BUT if you go to talk to him it will work … if it doesnt try more flirt options with him as if you have barely used these its more likely he wont in my personal experience!

        Hope this helps anyone having problems, figured if it worked for me it must be ok?

          I tried what you said still nothing and I’ve done ever dialogue option several times all the flirting all the regular. I will keep trying so different things see if anything changes. Thanks for your help.

    The dialogue is fantastic and the voice acting incredible (yes yes i know .. but i had to put fallout 4 down to check this out!)

    I cannot believe the difference in this update and how much has been added when compared to the first release, (and i only ran around for an hour!) I’m a little sad that Darren’s giving you trouble and had to be evicted temporarily but i have full confidence that he’ll be back (just punch him in the nose, i hear he likes that)

    So yeah, thanks for all the time and creativity everyone has put into this! <3

            Gunplay has a much better feel to it compared to fallout 3 and i see it being GOTY, with Witcher 3 being its only hard competition (i dont play the witcher games)

      It’s probably best not to install this version with NMM. Either install it manually as per Mara’s instructions, or just wait for a week or so. There is a possibility that a proper Nexus upload will be back in the cards.
