PSA: Your old modded Skyrim PC save won’t work with the new Special Edition


What’s all this then, hmm? Oh, hmm, I say. My my. What a, hmm, to-do. The thing is, old chum, it looks like we’ve got ourselves in a bit of the old, hmm, pickle. The Skyrim Special Edition is out and about on the town today, hmm, but gosh golly gee willikers, it looks like we’re… incompatible. What an absolutely ghastly state of affairs, hmm. Ghastly, yes. Hmm. Yes.

“Existing save games from the original PC game will work in the PC version of Skyrim Special Edition. Simply copy your old saves from My Games/Skyrim to My Games/Skyrim Special Edition,” reads documentation supplied with review copies of the game, according to a report over on Eurogamer. “Only use original saves that have never been used with mods. Do not use your original save game if this error appears when you load it in Skyrim Special Edition: ‘This save relies on content that is no longer present.'”

So that’s awfully, hmm, disappointing. It’s almost as disappointing, I daresay, as that time the, hmm, Baronness von Krabenstein and I went down the river to Merryfair Farm for a bite of flotsam, and she was shot in the face by one of those vile adventurer types from Riften. Oh, the ignominy.

Must dash, though. Toodle-pip cheerio!
