Have you also changed the bUseMultibounds setting in the GECKCustom.ini? I had an issue with the GECK crashing whenever I tried loading anything in the Render Window. Changing "bUseMultibounds" from 1 to 0 fixed it and it now no longer crashes. In fact, the GECK seems to load a little faster to.
Yes, I tried what you recommended, but unfortunately it didn't change anything for me. Thank you for trying to help though.

Can't reproduce issue with races and facegen tabs, something in your setup is causing the problem.

Has anyone run into any problems with the GECK simply choking on files during load? I've done the whole bit: GECK Extender, LAA patch, but every time I try to load any TTW-specific mod, the thing just hangs during the "loading files" process. I know these are large files, but I just let it sit overnight (12+ hours), and nothing came of it. The CPU usage stays steady at around ~15%, and it accesses the disk at about 4.5 MB/s until memory use hits ~3.7GB, when that levels off. I know that's approaching the limit for a 32-bit executable, so am I just hitting that? If that's the case, how is everyone else managing to get it working?

EDIT: Hm. Never mind: it seems to be working now. I'd forgotten to disable ENB's d3d9.dll. I'm more used to that causing an outright crash than this kind of freeze, but, in any case, it seems to work now. Go figure.

There is a setting in ENB to ignore the GECK

Yeah, I know. "IgnoreGECK=true" in the [Fix] section. It was set, but the GECK was still locking up for me until I actually moved the DLL out of the way. I don't claim to understand it: for all I know something else was happening and the ENB thing just seemed like it fixed it. But it's the only thing that I can identify that appears to have helped. :?

Thank you for checking it out.

I can't even open up a vanilla race, with a blank ESP being the only active plugin. I know that loose files can be a culprit, but the only character meshes GECK should see are in the BSAs.


I just did a clean install and made the necessary changes to the GECKCustom.ini. What other variables are there that would cause a crash in the render window?

I'm not sure what the issue could be other than a driver problem. It works on my machine and many others, so it has to be something local. GECK doesn't ignore loose files either.

I know, I was just saying that I purged my data folder of any files related to chargen, so the only files GECK is seeing are in the BSAs. Oh well, thanks anyway.

I am still having this issue. GECK will not load the TTW esm. I've tried every mentioned solution to no avail.

Guess I'm just going to have to work without using the TTW master.
