Loose Scripts in DataScripts

  • Check for: dragonactorscript.pex and/or mqkilldragonscript.pex. Remove them if present. They are from dragon mods that came as loose files.
  • DSAMG – Dragon Soul Absorb More Glorious, and Diversified Dragons are known to cause this. Those mods need to be updated with a Dragonborn patch that incorporates the fixes from USLEEP.
  • Others may be a factor as well.
  • Note too that the offending mod may have the script packaged inside a BSA. That will need to be handled by that mod’s author.
