Got the dreaded purple missing textures bug happening all of the sudden now. Random trees are purple (in pre-texture model form), animals, people, etc. Getting worse as time goes along. Had random bits all glowy yellow inside a Fort once also. Have to exit and restart the game to clear it, but...

Seems to be pretty common googling "purple skyrim". Hope they fix it.

Yeah, that's it. It gets worse as time goes by, until you close out and restart.

I just got it all the sudden today as well, after 70 plus hours of play total.

Going to a certain city, (forget the name at the moment) then boom.

Yeah I had just went to Winterhold Mage college and went to update my stats and boom....purple all over. The funny thing is it's just that screen. If I exit out, all it normal. Then.... I go outside and see the purple dragon. WTF!!!

Oh.... something else weird happened earlier today..... was playing the game and all of a sudden BSOD

Well I hope it's not my system - anyway a Google of the issue brought me to Steam - Anyone Else Getting BSOD from Skyrim? - Steam Users' Forums

Seems this isn't a unique problem. Wowser!

No, 70 plus total hours. Not continuous.


Yeah, I've got a few BSOD's from playing. Quite a few sudden CTD's out of the blue also.

Quite often I push F12 to take a screenshot and instead it just CTD. Not sure if that's Steam, or the game.


I had one unique episode where all of the sudden I got the "Display driver stopped responding and recovered" crash.

Never had that happen once with any set of drivers since owning this card BTW.

Then shorty after that, I had a system out of memory/low reference crash. Crashed the game, and also closed out my HTC home weather widget.

Have always had my system on just 512 MB of Virtual memory. After that episode I bumped it back up to 3 GB (have 12 GB total) to see if it actually had something to do with that. Haven't had it do the same again yet.


Learning the game is quite buggy, and some serious system straining as I go along. Which isn't a surprise.

Well it's nice to know I'm not the only one who's got a BSOD from a game. But yeah, the game could really use a performance patch. I don't mind a game pushing a system, but pushing it to BSOD's and CTD's is clearly saying the game engine is broken. Definitely needs a performance tweak in the form of a patch. Wow.

Just thought about something....

If you have a large save folder - C:\Users\UserName\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Saves, try deleting, or moving some of the older save files somewhere else.

I posted this suggestion for Fallout 3 a while back as it seemed to cure a lot of crashes for me. What I usually did in Fallout 3 was move all but the last 10-15 saves, after that my crashes subsided until the folder ballooned again (I do a lot of saving).

Anyway seeing that Skyrim crashes a lot you'd be better off saving often, which will obviously balloon your save folder so....

At any rate give it a try, you never know.

PS - You don't want to delete the autosave or quicksave files, just the Save# files - the oldest one of course.

Discuss: Bulletstorm
So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
