Skyrim Romance Update 1/27/2015 Bugs & FAQ

Hello Everyone,

I am happy to announce that i’m adding a Bugs & FAQ tab to the website to help those having some issues with Skyrim Romance.  Here is the new link!

Also here are a few fixes for some of the common issues.

Q: I’m stuck at the Ball loading screen it’s frozen.

A: If you are getting infinite 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 <0>

Q: I clicked (Hug Bishop) /Bishop hugged me.  Now he’s dead / bleeding.

A: This apparently is a bug in Vanilla Skyrim caused by the “hug” animation. If the character you’re hugging should have “died” at any point (ex: they are ‘essential’ and fall in battle) the hug animation will for some reason either kill them, make them bleed or generally cut off conversation until you move to a new cell. (Which would explain why ‘new’ characters – where Bishop hasn’t fallen in battle yet – would not have a problem.)

Here is what you need to fix it:

Q: Bishop is stuck in the Frozen Hearth with Darren.

A: The scene needs you to speak to Darren before it ends and then wait for Bishop to speak and he will start following you.

Q: Bishop is stuck in the Bannered mare.

A: After the scene with Neeshka give it about 10 -20 seconds and he should start following you again.

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.

QI’ve married Bishop but my quest isn’t completing.

A: hit ~ and type CompleteQuest KMVWeddingCeremony

Q: Are there going to be animations for the mod?

A: This is going to be my next project.  I will most like start making it in the coming weeks/months.

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: When is the next update coming out?

A: Since this project took around a year to make, my team and I will be taking a long break.

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!!!!

    Met bishop and after the initial wolf quest and some additional dialogue with him he already seems to think he’s my husband.. not sure why it moved so fast? What am I missing? I run alternate life does that have anything to do with it?

      You’re more likely to get a reply if you contact Mara through email, not commenting on old posts that don’t get checked 😉

    I’ve found that once I talked to Bishop, and told him to part ways from me, I cannot talk to any of the other men. I will press the button to talk to them but it will simply not let me.

      Yeah you’re supposed to have Bishop with you in order to speak with them, otherwise it gets all buggy.

    When using Alternate Start – Live Another Life, Bishop spawns in the starting cell with me and repeats his opening line over and over again. After choosing my new life and spawning in my new location he sees to be tethered to me. He follows me around everywhere, repeating his opening line over and over again, runs a certain distance away from me, disappears, and spawns again right on top of me. He doesn’t stay still long enough to finish the first conversation. It’s weird and kinda annoying, not sure if it is a conflict between these two mods or one of the other mods I have installed, a bug, glitch or what. XD

      Yeah I’ve come to a realization that this mod conflicts with Alternative Life

    If I may make a Suggestion, for anyone who suffers with CTDs, I’d recommend checking through the Skyrim Crash Compendium to anyone suffering CTDs, the information therin should help lower the chance, if not completely rid the game of, CTDs, I can affirm that the information is quite Viable as ever since i followed it’s advice I actually completely rid myself ofCTDs at large.

    A bug that I was going to mention was the ball gown. I am an Argonian but I have a human body with the dress. I’m not sure if this is a bug or just the way it has to be.

    I found a bug in dragonsreach, when you are about to ride the dragon. Bishop is supposed to say something but this only happens after you have defeated alduin.. Is this going to be fixed as well?

    Thank you so much for all the hard work!!

    • Mara January 27, 2015 at 12:45 pm - Reply

      Yes that also needs to be fixed ^^
