Btw yes I am aware that I have 2 other threads in this section. It's just that Oblivion is being really evil to me lately. So anyway....

This same exact thing happened to me on my 360 version of Oblivion and now it's happening on my PC version. Particle effects like the spell impact effects, (when you cast a restoration spell on yourself, or when a destruction spell hits a wall), fires, the particles that come out of portals like Oblivion gates or the blue archway portals, and possibly the doors that you can open and actually see opening. (Not the ones that lead to a load screen.) I haven't tested it myself, but when this was happening on the 360 doors would open slowly, so this is probably going on with the PC version. Basically all of these effects are running at 1 fps, or possibly even in the negatives. Strangely, it seems like this all starts at a certain time in the game. At a certain time, day, month, and year, every time. I don't know if that's true or not, but it just seems like it. When I start a new game it's all fine and good, but when I load my "main" saved game it will start about 3 "game" days later, which was what happened on the 360. And if I remember correctly, this will only get worse the longer I play my "main" saved game with this "glitch" going on.

Someone please help!!!! The game is unplayable for me if this is going on! What should I do???

having 3 threads open should be fine, I did that couple times too I think ;).

Anyway you should look up on Google "lagging animations oblivion fix" or something, check Bethesda's forums or anything like that because I think that's a well known glitch that they made a fix for. Unfortunately there's no fix for the 360 version.

I downloaded a fix for the problem I'm having off of TES Nexux called OAF. I'll see if that works.

You're going to have to wait for the result of that fix I got. My Oblivion has turned pure evil and now my loading screens are locking up and I can't play Oblivion AT ALL. I can't load a saved game without it locking up, and I can't figure out why. If anyone has an answer, PLEASE follow this link and tell me in this thread:

did your loading screens start locking up after you installed the fix?

I found out that they weren't locking up, they were just taking a long time to load. I did solve the particle effects problem with the Oblivion Animation Fixer (OAF) and I think somewhere in the readme it said that whenever you start a game that has been fixed by OAF that the first time you load a game when you start Oblivion that the loading will take a while, but after that the loading will progress as normal until you start Oblivion again.

So yes technically this did start after I installed OAF, but all my experience of the freezing loading screens on the 360 has taught me that when the loading screen locks up, just turn the game off. I never really waited for a while to see what happens.

haha I understand, the first time I played oblivion I thought it wasn't loading either :)
