Installation problems

When all NPCs move with the dreaded STIFF “half-T” POSE, then this is NO FNIS bug: YOU HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG DURING INSTALLATION!

  • Remove the desktop GenerateFNISforUsers.exe desktop short-cut
  • Re-install FNIS Behavior EXACTLY as described in the “Installation”
  • Fix all errors in the generator’s text field, and give note to all warnings – Errors definitely WILL, Warnings CAN indicate causes of the “half-T” problem
  • DON’T try to be smart moving things around
  • DON’T call the generator from within 7Zip, WinRar, …, and NOT from a folder that you arbitrarily find through the Windows Explorer Search function

On the off chance that the issue continues AND you are utilizing a LEGAL, STEAM based form of Skyrim then, at that point report your concern WITH SUFFICIENT and PRECISE data in the FNIS conversation string. Continuously incorporate the substance of the generator’s content field (duplicate/glue) from your last run. Furthermore, keep away from pointless data like “glitches”, “didn’t work”, “attempted all unique ways multiple times”.

FNIS Behaviors


The primary document of FNIS, FNIS Behaviors, is a device, NOT a mod. In reality 2 apparatuses. Mod creators can utilize the modders apparatus to produce conduct documents to add new custom movements to their own mods. The other one, the client’s apparatus, then, at that point will gather the information for all FNIS subordinate instruments on the client PC and afterward coordinate that into the client’s Skyrim establishment.

To guide new liveliness into the framework, it is important to alter unique (“vanilla”) conduct records for characters and animals. As a result of the counter modding construction of these practices there can’t be 2 mods that adjust a similar conduct record. 

Mods that utilize FNIS are giving liveliness records, straightforward content documents that tell FNIS with an assortment of boundaries, how to bring the movements into Skyrim. The FNIS client device then, at that point gathers this information and makes ONE bunch of altered conduct documents which have all the data required. No mod creator needs to contact conduct documents, and no movement mod is contrary to the others. Given that they all utilize FNIS as their structure. 

FNIS liveliness can be utilized for all sorts of activity undertakings, going from straightforward standbys to sit succession, furniture movements, matched activities, killmoves, and then some. FNIS additionally permit to powerfully supplant every one of the main standard activities, similar to development, battle,
