Skyrim Script Extender v1.4.

8 by Ian Patterson, Stephen Abel and Paul Connelly (ianpatt, behippo and scruggsywuggsy the ferret) Thanks to: gibbed The Skyrim Script Extender, or SKSE for short, is a modder's resource that expan ds the scripting capabilities of Skyrim. It does so without modifying the execut able files on disk, so there are no permanent side effects. Compatibility: SKSE will support the latest version of Skyrim available on Steam, and _only_ th is version (currently 1.4.21.0). When a new version is released, we will update as soon as possible; please be patient. No editor has been released yet. [ Installation ] 1. Copy the .dll and .exe files to your Skyrim directory. This is usually in you r Program Files folder under Steam\SteamApps\common\skyrim\. If you see files na med TESV and SkyrimLauncher, this is the correct folder. Do not copy these files to the Data folder as with a normal mod. The "src" folder is only useful for pr ogrammers, most users can ignore it. 2. Launch the game via running skse_loader.exe. If you use a desktop shortcut to launch Skyrim normally, just update the shortcu t to point to skse_loader.exe instead of TESV.exe or SkyrimLauncher.exe. [ Suggestions for Modders ] Scripts written with these new commands must be created via the CreationKit afte r it is launched via skse_loader. Open a command prompt window, navigate to your Skyrim directory, and type "skse_loader -editor". Alternately you can create a shortcut to skse_loader.exe, open the properties window and add "-editor" to the Target field. The normal editor can open plugins with these extended scripts, b ut it cannot recompile them and will give errors if you try. If your mod requires SKSE, please provide a link to the main SKSE website <http: //skse.silverlock.org/> instead of packaging it with your mod install. Future ve rsions of SKSE will be backwards compatibile, so including a potentially old ver sion can cause confusion and/or break other mods which require newer versions. When your mod loads, use the command GetSKSERelease to make sure a compatible ve rsion of SKSE is installed. This command will return an integer that will be inc remented for every release of SKSE, making version checking simple. GetSKSEVersi on/Minor/Beta are still available, but those are suggested to be used only to re port version numbers to the user. if GetSKSERelease < 5 MessageBox "This mod requires a newer version of SKSE." endif [ Troubleshooting / FAQ ] * Crashes or strange behavior: - Let us know how you made it crash, and we'll look into fixing it. * XBox 360 or PS3 version? - No.
