Skyrim Anniversary Edition Patch Fixed Bugs but Broke Mods

Patch 1.6.323 for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition has been released. It fixes bugs, but also breaks the mods once again.

PATCH 1.6.323 IS AMONG OTHERS:
  1. Fix for inactive black screen bug;
  2. Fixes for in-game notes;
  3. Fix for problem with opening some doors;
  4. Broken compatibility with some mods.

A new update for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition has been released. The good news is that it fixes some bugs, the bad news is that it broke mods once again.

The new patch was marked with the number 1.6.323. Its main advantage is solving the problem of inactive black screen, which appeared in some players at game startup or when trying to load a save from a session with mods. It also fixes bugs which blocked proper display of text in some notes and prevented some doors from opening.

The whole problem is that changes introduced by 1.6.323 caused that Skyrim Script Extenderit stopped working, the project that is the foundation of most of the game's more ambitious mods.

Of course, in this case the problem is smaller than it might seem. Not only can we expect a quick update of Skyrim Script Extender, but now the whole modding community is just starting to switch to the Anniversary Edition and most projects still don't have an Anniversary Edition version.

The problem with mods can be solved by yourself

Problems with mods in Anniversary Edition stem from the fact that this version is not available as a separate production. It only replaced the old Special Edition through an update. Fortunately, one fan has developed a project to roll back the game to a version that all modifications work with. It is available in two variants:

  1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition - Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Downgrade Patcher (Full Patcher) - download page
  2. Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Downgrade Patcher (Best of Both Worlds version) - download page

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition was released on November 11 this year on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
