Man, after installing that high res texture dlc, in some places the skipping/lag....whatever you wanna call it, is horrendous. To the point of just non-stop crawl/maxing out. In some castles and caves, coming out of some houses (like my own in Riften), etc.

Might just have to uninstall it.

I'm not working with crap specs here either...

I installed it yesterday, ran it sofar all is running very smoothly and no lag/skipping...but I did notice that I couldn't play the game in offline mode anymore before I installed the update, and I couldn't run the game in online mode without installing the update... So I am not shore about the following,but maybe you can't play skyrim anymore after you uninstall the update? BUT keep in mind all who read this,I am not shore about this,this is just a hunch, and it's based off what I experienced before updating my game.

The former can trap only white souls—those of non-sentient creatures—while the latter, according to Nelacar, can trap only black souls—the souls of sentient beings. In actuality, however, The Black Star can hold either white or black souls, just like a Black Soul Gem.



Additionally, bringing the Star to Aranea makes her available as a follower. While giving the Star to Nelacar does not provide a companion option, The Black Star has the advantage of a much more abundant source of Grand Souls, as all black souls are of the Grand level. Meanwhile, only white souls from exceptionally powerful monsters, typically unique bosses, are Grand Souls.
Hope that helps.

Yes i know that,what i mean is,i want to do the good deed,well i gave it to Aranea

Question: I travel around and i complete quests in non logical line,i just choose\take one in luck.

Is there any chance to spoil anything in the game?

Question: How much money i need to have in Skyrim? I have almost 400.000.

How much money do you NEED?

I would say that the only money you really NEED is the 5 grand to buy the house in Whiterun and possibly the 2-3 grand to furnish it so it doesn't look like a wreck when you come home to store your loot. Really, everything else in the game can be had by looting and hunting, nothing else need be bought at all. (Initially I did need to buy some health potions though, but they are cheap)

Though if you are collecting the "unususal gems" you will NEED to but the house in Solitude and that's about 30-35k?

Everything else is a "want to" rather than a "need to" as far as I know and even if you bought every house there is it would only be around 125k or so?

I'm kind of hoping that people that do the creation kit stuff create a really awesome house that you have to both quest for and buy it for like 400k gold. Make it REALLY worth it and make you work hard for it...

Well that has always been a problem in this series. But it's not like a HUGE problem. It's /exactly/ how I played and am like 330 places found so nearly complete. I've ruined maybe 3-4 quests out of hundreds and those were all small stupid things like "find me this book" side quests. I have a book called Children of the Sun (or something) and the quest giver wont take it from me because I found it before I got the quest. But it's nothing...

The 1.4 patch (and some earlier ones) fix most of the larger quest breakages that resulted from finding quest objects before you were supposed too. But 99% of the time you will just run into a gate in a dungeon that is unopenable because you need to have started a quest to get into the chamber.

So I wouldn't worry about it, I scoured every castle and cave on my way to and from every quest I did no matter what and the overall breakage has been exceptionally small.

There is some rumour that a future DL content pack may make them available. They actually exist in the current database, you just cant get there and there isn't a lot of stuff there even if you cheat your way through the engine enough to view it.

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.
