    Title says it all. I think the issue is with FNIS, which I can't get running properly.
    (GenerateFNIS executable not working)

    I've done a lot to try to fix this, and I may just go ahead and bork my current install to get a fresh one. But I want help with this anyway.

    Here's some images and details. This is the load order with all the mods I'm running. loadorder.png

    Here's the screen the game freezes at, and my task manager running over it, showing the CPU usage.
    (CPU usage is something like 20% when I start the game up)

    I had the game working beforehand. And the game worked with a few mods installed. I'm pretty sure this has to do with the whole FNIS thing, though.

    I haven't tried mods in PlayOnLinux for Skyrim, but its very possible the mods are causing problems.
    Do these mods cause problems in Windows as well?

    With a list of a billion mods like that one of them is going to cause a problem. I would recommend removing them all and then re-subbing to them as the game settles in.

    Also, make sure wine is properly configured. You can run on the base packages that steam installs, sure, but I have a blanket of packages I set up.

    Code:
     
    d3d8
    d3d9
    d3d10
    d3dx9_36
    d3dx9_37
    d3dx9_38
    d3dx9_39
    d3dx9_40
    d3dx9_41
    d3dx9_42
    d3dx10_36
    d3dx10_37
    d3dx10_38
    d3dx10_39
    d3dx10_40
    d3dx10_41
    d3dx10_42
    d3dcompiler_36
    d3dcompiler_37
    d3dcompiler_38
    d3dcompiler_39
    d3dcompiler_40
    d3dcompiler_41
    d3dcompiler_42
    dsound
    dmusic
    msvcm80
    msvcp100
    msvcp80
    msvcr100
    msvcp80
    xinput1_4 
    You can add the assorted packages you like, the list for me is a bit larger now to accommodate other games, but you get the point. Make all resources available.

    I would also ask if you installed through POL and whether it was on CD or steam, but seeing as you got it to run I'm assuming you're in base wine.

    I'll see about making a virtual drive with these packages. Do all of them just work together? Or are there conflicts? It sounds like you just grab all of the packages and run all your games with them. Which would be pretty solid, really.

    EDIT: Installed thru POL with Steam

    In my case use only Skyrim HD 1.6 and works good, character creation works normally too

    Really you only need these packages to run Skyrim:
    • POL_Install_corefonts
    • POL_Install_d3dx10
    • POL_Install_d3dx9
    • POL_Install_tahoma
    • POL_Install_vcrun2008
    • POL_Install_xact
    Its possible extra d3dx libraries can conflict and cause issues. The only way to know is to install them and see...
    IF they DO cause problems, then you have to start over. :(
