I really love this. Nice classic sound and very consistent themes across the songs.

I agree. Just finished the album. Really like the authentic composition and the variety while exploring a dark dugeon style of sound. Will be coming back to this one.

I modded myself into a corner and can't find my way out. Game crashes when attempting to load the saved game. Vortex is displaying a "failed to write plugin list" error message. Googling hasn't been much help. I disabled all mods to try to find out what the problem is, but she still can't get off the ground. Any advice?

Found out what was wrong?

I did actually, it was a dll injector that caused the plug-in list to become read only. Took me a while to locate it. I ended up reinstalling to try to fix the problem, and that didn't work. Seems there's a lot of stuff that doesn't get overwritten during reinstall, but I found the file causing the problem.

Jesus, I don't even know what that means. Was just googling around and found this cus I'm having issues. Going to try what Verittan wrote. I have been crashing random places since I bought the game 2 weeks ago. Tried reinstalling multiple times and other shit, I just still crash sometimes when entering new areas and even more often, when entering buildings.

Are you running any mods? There should be a ton of helpful posts about crashing issues here on r/skyrimvr if you search for them. My issue was pretty specific to some mods I had tried to get working.

I fear this will be me this evening if I can't figured out where I botched it.

The Natural Locomotion app just released on Steam really helps to take SkyrimVR immersion to the next level. I can't get over how much this improved my playing experience. The regular in-game locomotion always makes me feel like I'm on a little go kart riding around the mountains. Now I feel like I'm involved in walking. It's also great if you get any motion sickness.

The original post about the app is going on over here, but I've been loving it so much I had to deliver my own praise. The app is also on sale for the first week of launch. I got the physical mechanics all figured out in about five minutes. In my experience, I end up moving through the world a lot slower using this, just because it feels so much more natural. Running backwards is a touch tricky, but again this adds an element of realism. My only complaint is that sometimes I find my character still drifting a little after releasing the grips, but hey, it's a beta, and I'm sure this will be worked on.

Thanks u/DiThi for putting out this great locomotion option over all the vanilla stuff!

How do I crouch? I have diabetes and my legs are messed up, so actually crouching IRL is not an option. Jumping seems to work nicely, but I'm a sneaky assassin, I need my crouch for backstab bonuses.

I'm using the physical crouch option for sneak, but you don't really need to crouch. You can basically just lower your body two inches or so to activate it. Not sure if that's easy for you. I've got a bad knee and can't crouch for real, but lowering myself a tiny bit isn't a problem.

I wish I could use this, but I would hurt myself trying to jump. I have a vaulted ceiling in the middle of my playspace, some parts of my playspace have less than 2 inches over my head.

I don't jump as much in VR as I did pancake Skyrim, just because trying to awkwardly climb moutain sides isn't as fun as walking long paths now. You totally need a little head room to jump though, even if it's a short jump.

Agreed. I tend to move around in my space to get closer to NPCs during conversation, or just to look closely at things. Sometimes I forget to recenter and find myself getting smacked around my bandits that are way off in the distance. This feature is my number one request right now.

Enjoying SkyrimVR like many other on here, and wanted to play with the SS settings. For some reason, I don't have them in the "developer" section of the SteamVR settings. Is there something I need to enable to access these? My googling hasn't found a solution.

It’s in the settings under Video and manual override, and then also in the Application tab in Settings as well

Thanks a bunch, that's awesome. I see they changed it to a percentage instead of the 1.5x style they had before. Also nice that you can do it on a per-game option. Very helpful, appreciate it.

How does greenman gaming work? Do you get a steam code?

Awesome thanks, going to try this when I get home!

Which kind?

I ordered the Soprano. Went with the brown because it reminds me of a beer bottle. The company is actually called Outdoor Ukulele. www.outdoorukulele.com. Small company. Made in the USA.

Let me know. I'm leaning towards that one. Seems like the extra money is worth it if it lasts longer

Hey, so I've had the Uke for 3 days now. Shipping takes a little while since it's made to order. To give a little background, I'm very much a novice player, but I've been practicing on and off for about 9 years. This is my third uke. I own a cheap soprano (my first uke) and a still fairly cheap Oscar Schmid concert. The sound you get out of the Outdoor Ukulele isn't bad. It's better than my cheap soprano, but obviously much more muted than my concert. It's fairly quite, but has a very clean sound without a lot of extra going on. The build quality is exceptional. It's even more sturdy than I expected. If I had to reach for an item to bludgeon someone with in self defense, this item would do nicely (not that I would want to hurt someone, and especially not with my new uke!). What I'm trying to say is that it's solid. So if you have dreams of playing "somewhere over the rainbow" while camping in the rain as I do, I definitely recommend this product. Small side note, I got the soprano with the precision tuning upgrade, as well as some strap pegs because I like those.

I remember on tested they had said that it didn't work well through walls and that the range was short. (https://youtu.be/9_DjTywaqh8)

Vive here. Altered my height. Power armor HUD jumps around in smooth locomotion, or more annoyingly, room scale movement. Just learning to live with it, along is all the other bug and quirks of FO4VR. Hope there is a fix one day, because this game is awesome. Just in desperate need of some polish.

I pre-ordered FO4VR, but will only get to play this weekend. Have the recent patches fixed the visual problems? Or should I still make some changes when I play it for the first time?

My last build was over 10 years ago. Lacking confidence in my choices. I have been aiming for a $2000 budget. This build goes a little over, but I think I can stretch it.

Suggestions and feedback welcome. Would love to reduce the price without too much compromise, and willing to stretch a little further for any worth while improvements.

Thanks if you guys can help me gain any confidence in my choices or offer advise.

My pleasure!

First off, if you're not going to overclock, then don't with go with either a -K variant and go for an H-series motherboard (H270, for example, non-overclocking). This also means no overclocked RAM, by the way. If you're not OC'ing the cpu then by all means, you can stick with the small (read: 120mm radiator) version(s) of the Corsair all-in-one liquid coolers, sure. I mean the water-cooling's a luxury here either way, air would do just fine too.

After accepting that some of my choices were overkill for a 1080p 144hz monitor, I made some adjustments.

Any feedback for the update?

Trying to keep everything coming from Newegg to cut down on shipping costs. That, and I just learned that shipping electronics from Amazon to Quebec gives you a bad case of extra taxes.

Intel - Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor

The 8XXX series is launching in 3.5 weeks, wait a bit before dropping >$400 on this. You'll not only see sales, but on newer and better parts.

Corsair - H60 54.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler

Good series, but get something beefier like the Corsair H100i v2.

MSI - B250 PC MATE ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

Get a motherboard that supports multiplier overclocking. Right now your best bet would be a Z270 board, but I would wait the 3.5 weeks.

Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

No issue there but will this be your only drive?

MSI - GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Video Card

As mentioned by others, this is overkill for 1080p gaming. I would honestly recommend a GTX 1070 or an RX580 8GB for most gamers with your budget right now, unless they were actively planning on gaming at 1440p144 or higher.

NZXT - S340 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case

Case is fine. I've been building in a lot of Fractal Design, Phanteks and a bit of Inwin lately but that's a personal preference. There's so much choice out there.

Corsair - CSM 550W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

If you're staying with the GTX 1080 I'd go a bit beefier.

ViewSonic - XG2401 23.6" 1920x1080 144Hz Monitor

I don't know a whole lot about monitors so I can't help you there, but consider if you want to game a higher res or not, as others have also mentioned. You probably have the budget though it's tight.

Awesome break down. I wasn't aware that the 8xxx series was on it's way. Good to know.

I was thinking with the 6700K overclocking wouldn't really be necessary. At stock clock speeds do you think that the H60 cooler would suffice? Or does it still merit the H100i?

Thanks for the help.

Don't need the 1600X and cooler. Stock is fine.

Get a cheaper motherboard that has what features you want. A B350 should be fine.

Don't need a 750W. A 550-650W is more than enough. Also, the CXM is more of a budget PSU.

Could use the money saved for a GTX1080 or a better monitor.

Notes:

  • Moved down to the Ryzen 1600. It's the same chip as the 1600x, with the upside of coming with a stock cooler, and the downside of marginally worse overclocking ability. $300 for the 1600x is a good price though, so if you'd like the extra 100-200MHz in overclocking ability, pair the 1600x with a CRYORG H7. I think the money is better used elsewhere, though.
  • The board you selected has on-board wifi, it's cheaper to purchase the board + wifi card separately (although it's slightly less cool). This is the wifi card I'd suggest.
  • A slightly faster set of RAM (also marginally cheaper)
  • For an extra $100 you can get the GTX 1080.
  • Included an alternate case just for your reference.
  • The Power Supply is super overkill in terms of wattage, but at $120 after Mail-in rebate its a good value. If you'd rather not submit Mail-in rebates, my next choice would be the EVGA G2 550W.
  • Included a different monitor just as reference. This one is much more expensive, but it's 1440p (pretty!). Ultimately, the choice of monitor is something that is hard for an outsider to decide upon.
  • Also, you don't have to buy Windows. A legally installed unpaid for Windows loses very little in terms of functionality vs paid for Windows.

Overall, this build is actually several hundred cheaper than what you've selected, with the only sacrifice coming from your CPU (and a small sacrifice at that). The savings allowed you to move up to a faster graphics card, and gives you some room to potentially spend more on a monitor if you'd like.

Intel i5 for $10 more.

Unless you're unzipping files all day or doing video renders, intel architecture wins out. Everything that doesn't take advantage of multi-threading (read: large percentage of games) will get outperformed by the equal priced intel models. Note the differences on these benchmarks. Slight gain on multi-thread games and a loss on open-world / console cross-platform titles

I'd also recommend this ASUS monitor for nearly $100 less. I purchased one two years ago and now I have three. Also - you are paying extra for a freesync monitor with an Nvidia GPU

Finally, your motherboard supports DDR4-2133 / 2400 / 2666 memory clocks. You can save some money by buying some slower RAM otherwise your motherboard is going to slow those down. In some cases your motherboard cannot use the RAM at all if it doesn't match a supported speed.

Thanks a bunch. You're totally right. Going to look this over some more.

You can't complete the game solely unarmed though :( there is one person who takes no damage from unarmed... or maybe I just couldn't hurt him. This was 15 years ago I may have missed something

I have definitely complete the game using nothing but unarmed. Naturally this includes the powers fist, but still. It's actually amazing because with perks you can punch many many times in a single turn once your action points are max, plus a few action boy perks. To be honest I think unarmed is a very strong build with the right combinations.
