Help with a Skyrim issue.

6 replies 126 views Edited Jan 3, 2013

Hello, I will keep this brief. I am playing Skyrim again after a few months of waiting for patches to fix several things. However now I noticed that almost always when I try to open up a menu VIA " o " or the fav menu my controller seems very unresponsive and I almost have to spasticall wiggle every button to get it to work again.

 

Has anyone else had this problem and is there a fix ?

If you have another controller have you tried using it and see if its not controller specific?

 

I always say to everyone, if they want to play skyrim, to play it on PC..... my 5 year old laptop runs Skyrim on Max settings, with some graphical mods as well and runs flawlessly. (around 40-60fps) consistently.

 

 

being able to play the DLC is also nice

Logic, who would've thought eh? Oh wait.... No one thinks anymore.

If I had the means , I would play on the PC but I dont atm. Seems like the PS3 version of this game has gotten the worse of it. Oh well I will have to deal with it I guess. Any other ideas would be welcomed :smileyhappy:

A data reinstall fixes most Skyrim issues for me.

You go to the Game Data section (not Save Data) and delete the Skyrim install and patch files, then reinstall it from disc and redownload the patches.

Also, don't hoard! Sell all the stuff you loot except for the ones you want to keep. Hoarding stuff in your house causes the savedata to grow bigger and bigger, causing issues.

I've only recently started playing and noticed thistoo. I don't spastically wiggle the stick to get it to respond. It seems like you must wait about 3 seconds after hitting o to select your option. This seems like a long time in the heat of battle but you can't get hurt while the menu is open. Good input about the hoarding though. I had no idea.

I'm guessing it's autosaving?  If not, I have no idea.  When it saves it pauses until it's done, but otherwise I haven't really had lag with the menu.

Yup, as I recall from when the game came out, I noticed this too and it goes back right to launch. A few seconds of lag bringing up any menu. It's not a glitch or lag, it's stupid programming telling the game to auto-save at a completely rediculous time.....opening a menu?....... So yeah, unless this is a different thing, disabling auto-save cures the "menu lag".
