Hearthfire has broken Skyrim
September 8, 2012
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed my time as a blood sucking creature of the night, but I find the dark lord far too overpowered.
Twice in the last 24hrs I’ve been trying to fast travel & both times the game hangs on the loading screen. The background image can be moved, the text tips keep updating, but nothing loads!
I haven’t even built a shed yet!
I purged the cache on the xbox HD earlier before playing, I couldn’t bare to switch it back on last night, I may try this again before loading.
Wish me luck!
If not I hope there’s a patch coming?
Update> The game re-loaded to prior to the location jump, I haven’t tried a location leap yet as the game feels laggy. Think I now hold empathy for those that bought it on the PS3.
Update2> It’s now unplayable, freezing with only a couple of sprites on screen… do we still call them sprites? It’s now froze completely, bugger
Others are in same situ Google: skyrim hearthfire freezing guess I’ll wait for patch
UpdateFin> It works, it seems if I stay away from quick jumping, so last session
- manually travel
- build a house
- stash pillaging gains
- go on a mission to find all of my masks
- decide to unlock the final mask
- die on mission for penultimate mask
- remember I’ve finished the quests anyway
Conclusion, for whatever reason it seems now hearthfire has not broken Skyrim… temporarily.
It’s now freezing more than ever!
I went back to an old save & had no problem.
A patch, a patch, my mansion house for a patch!
