jbrianj Posted March 16 Share Posted March 16 (edited) Hi. I'm having a bug where NPCs often completely stop using their greetings, or say anything that they're supposed to say. Like merchants at stands who don't say anything anymore. It feels like it's some dialogue script that wants to fire, but for some reason, the script is not reaching its conditions to fire. I think it has to do with NPC-to-NPC dialogue. Whenever the NPC has this weird issue, they won't say anything when I get near them. This same thing happens when an NPC goes to some other NPC to talk to eachother, which is why I think this has to be the reason. A good example is Madesi not saying anything at this stand in Riften anymore. He still has his regular schedule where he goes home eventually, but he never says anything anymore, or say anything when I get near him. It's not a huge problem, but breaks all idle dialogue of that character. And the longer my save goes, the more and more characters it starts to happen to, for no apparent reason. There's one fix that works that fixes the issue, and that's punching said NPC in the face, taking the 40 bounty, and then stopping fighting (hoping the NPC stops too). That fixes all the issues. For some reason its like a plague that spreads to more and more NPCs that have NPC-to-NPC conversations. 0 0 Skyrim.esm 1 1 Update.esm 2 2 Dawnguard.esm 3 3 HearthFires.esm 4 4 Dragonborn.esm 5 5 ccBGSSSE001-Fish.esm 254 FE 0 ccQDRSSE001-SurvivalMode.esl 254 FE 1 ccBGSSSE037-Curios.esl 6 6 ccBGSSSE025-AdvDSGS.esm 254 FE 2 UHDAP - MusicHQ.esp 254 FE 3 UHDAP - en0.esp 254 FE 4 UHDAP - en1.esp 254 FE 5 UHDAP - en2.esp 254 FE 6 UHDAP - en3.esp 254 FE 7 UHDAP - en4.esp 7 7 Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch.esp 8 8 SkyUI_SE.esp 9 9 Gildergreen Regrown.esp 254 FE 8 CBBE.esp 10 a Cutting Room Floor.esp 11 b Run For Your Lives.esp 12 c Bring Out Your Dead.esp 13 d The Paarthurnax Dilemma.esp 254 FE 9 UnleveledUniques.esp 14 e Alternate Start - Live Another Life.esp These are the only mods I have. Besides that I use SSE Engine Fixes and Bug Fixes SSE SKSE plugins. All up-to-date. I checked if UHDAP was the issue, but it is not. I made a new save, started a patron of inn AS-LAL in Riften. Did the introductory quest with Brynjolf, and suddenly now its some other people at the inn that are "stuck" in this way. Like I said: Giving them a punch and then sheathing my fists makes them behave normally again. My question is: Is this bug fixable, or is this an unresolved engine issue? And is it possible to workaround this weird issue, without punching them and gaining a bounty? Edited March 16 by jbrianj Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
