This is for the people who have played alot of Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul and might know more about it than I do (despite all the reading I've done). I have a few questions about it that I can't find answers to. I have turned to the forum community (as always) to see if anyone knows more than I do. First off, the animal companion thing seen in the trailer for OOO 1.3. How do you do it? What am I supposed to do in order to get an animal companion? Second, the whole lock-bashing thing. I've read about how it is supposed to work, but when I try it, nothing happens. The chest glows, but I hit it multiple times with no effect whatsoever. Third, is OOO causing the crash on exit error report thing, or is it something else? Fourth, whenever I'm in a cave or dungeon inhabited with alot of animals (prowler wolves, for example), the game slows down ALOT when I have 2 or more animals attacking me at once. I've tried turning the graphics down, but nothing works. It doesn't slow down at any other time, even if I have 8 bandits fighting me at once. Only with the animals, and only in the caves they inhabit. If I think of any more, I'll post them later. I would like to thank anyone who can give me any kind of insight on any of these. I'll keep checking periodically for updates.

Like I said in the other thread:

Opening glowing chests can be done while in sneak mode. It took me some time to find out.

1. I don't know, and I've wondered this myself. I believe it has something to do with the Bosmer on the Gold Coast. The only problem is, the Readme to OOO and the notes at the camp don't give much information about what you're actually supposed to do. I really wish it would have been made into a quest with journal entries and all.

2. :vikki: You only see purple chests when your weapon is out. Put it away and you can open/pick it like normal. Or you can keep your weapon out and bash it. I've only done this once, and it took way too many hits for me to ever want to do it again.

3. No. At least, I don't think so. My game does the same thing, even before I installed OOO. Just to be clear, when you exit, it shows the "Send Error Report?" window? If so, the same thing happens to me, I think it's "normal". Probably faulty coding on Bethesda's part.

4. Sorry, I don't know. It could be scripts or something that come with OOO. There may be a lot of scripts that are applied to animals that the game must process.

Ok, I know you answered this in the other thread, but where on earth is the geomancy ability? (Pun so very much intended). I went all through Vilverin and got nothing! Well, that's not true, I got a nifty light-emitting shield and a special axe, but nothing relating to geomancy. Can you tell me where the exact location is? Thanks.

Master_LionheartLike I said in the other thread:[/quote] I knew that, I meant the actual bash mode. I can't figure out how to work it. Every time I hit a glowing chest, nothing happens. I sat there and selected it to make it glow and then hit it as many times as I could before it stopped glowing for about 5 minutes before I realized absolutely nothing was happening.

Red Rebel 1. I don't know, and I've wondered this myself. I believe it has something to do with the Bosmer on the Gold Coast. The only problem is, the Readme to OOO and the notes at the camp don't give much information about what you're actually supposed to do. I really wish it would have been made into a quest with journal entries and all.[/quote] Yeah, that would make sense for him to have done that, but the fact that he didn't kind of makes me wonder how he thought people would find out how. He doesn't even give anyone straight answers when they ask him directly through comments on the download section of his file.

[quote=Red Rebel] 2. :vikki: You only see purple chests when your weapon is out. Put it away and you can open/pick it like normal. Or you can keep your weapon out and bash it. I've only done this once, and it took way too many hits for me to ever want to do it again.

Yeah, but how exactly did you get your bashing attempts to actually DO anything?

[quote=Red Rebel] 3. No. At least, I don't think so. My game does the same thing, even before I installed OOO. Just to be clear, when you exit, it shows the "Send Error Report?" window? If so, the same thing happens to me, I think it's "normal". Probably faulty coding on Bethesda's part.

Yeah, it's just annoying to have to change all my video settings EVERYTIME I get into the game, because I don't know the code in the .ini for the sliders in the video options in game.

As for your last point, that would make sense. He mentioned alot about the ai for animals, and I'm sure ALOT of scripts would be running at once.

I hit it A LOT. Lots of power attacks. As many hits as it took me the only time I did it, I'd sooner pick the lock or use the "unlock" cheat.

What? Threadjacker? I thought this thread was for questions about OOO. Geomancy is part of OOO.
