Creation kit - black screen in render window (started today)


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've been using the CK daily, since release, and haven't had many issues, but today I can't see a thing in the render window. It's completely black, whether I try to load an exterior or interior cell, in a mod or starting fresh with just Skyrim and Update as masters.  F5 and toggling lights do nothing, though f5 still shows me the green progress bar for a minute or two.  

 

The only thing that has changed is that I opted into the beta Skyrim  SE update, via steam.  Could that have changed CK somehow?  Has anyone else had this trouble?

I've also gone to the launcher and reinstalled CK, with no change.

Heh. I see more people are now falling victim to the Steam beta. :P

I verified it. Posted my findings here: https://beta-community.bethesda.net/topic/3842/ck-render-window-turns-black

 

Basically you need to revert the beta, copy the Skyrim - Shaders.bsa file from the regular release somewhere, then reapply the beta. Once done, stick the old shader file on top of the beta. Keep in mind I have no idea what consequences that could have for the game, but the CK render window will be fixed.

Hey Arthmoor and Plumber, I really appreciate the info.  I just finished reinstalling both the game, sans beta patch, and the ck.  I can see in the render window again.  I was a bit afraid of borking my game, hence the reinstall.

Just cleaned my masters, reinstalled wrye bash, and found my patch still works.  :)   

 

Bethesda was kind enough to respond to my help request with "though we provide creation kit, we do not support it," and a 'solved' status at the bottom.   -_-

Sounds odd. But they still intend to update it?

Ah! consumerism. :) :)

A man walks into a bar for a beer. Certainly sir, but we are unavailable to provide any end-user support for either the practice & methodology of usage, or after-effects of its consumption.

"We'll give you the beer, but we're not responsible if you get drunk to the point of sickness" sounds like it would be reasonable enough, had they not served poisoned beer.

 

The update was via steam, for the game itself.  The ck, to my knowledge, didn't change during that update.
