Siptah will not start well

Starting about two weeks ago when I try to start Siptah, it apparently loads okay, opens the screen where my character is, then freezes while the hard drive starts thrashing. I have waited as long as fifteen minutes to see if whatever is happening will complete but it does not. Alt-tab will let me close out the game so it looks like the freezing is merely the HD being very, very busy.

I have verified the files in Steam and gotten no errors. Exile and Savage Wild both load and play okay. Is there a mod incompatible with Siptah?

Hard to answer that since there are so many mods. What mods are you using? That will narrow it down a bunch. Not I am aware of a mod crashing Isle of Siptah, but may help to see the list so someone can answer if they know.

There is one simple scenario when you are using mods. Start a new local game without any mods. If it starts OK then add just one mod and start it again. If it starts OK then continue adding mods one by one to find the incompatible one. It’s dull but it always works. You may visit all the pages for your mods in Steam workshop, people write about incompatibilities there as well.


I am able to run Savage wilds mod on Exiled Lands and Isle of Siptah with no issue.

Savage Wilds will not work on those two servers since to work you need to the Engine.ini file to connect to the mod map, otherwise its just a space holder mod for those servers of mine. I have 3 servers with Amunets Server Transfer mod that transfers back and forth between the 3 of them.

So Savage Wilds mod is not the issue itself.

Thank you for your response. I can’t tell you how invaluable it is.

List of mods:
Emberlight 3.2.2
KrabbitWorldExiles 0.4.33
Pippi - User & Server Management - v3.6.1
Hosav’s Custom UI Mod - Revamped!
Eldarium in the Exiled Lands (Revision 1)
Savage Wilds 1.1.57

While not familiar with 4 of your mods personally (do not have them) but nothing seems like they would cause Siptah not to start.

EEWA, Pickup +, KrabbitWorldExiles and Eldarium in the Exiled lands are mods I do not have on my servers.

I’d check those 4 mods because I use the rest myself in Siptah :wink: Maybe it’s really Savage Wilds - not the mod itself but some inconsistency in .ini files or another configuration means for this mod.

I noticed the game loads terrible on a normal (or slow) HDD.

It took one of my friends 30 minutes to load the game completely although his character and the world was already loaded after like +/-5 minutes.

The game froze when playing full screen (alt-tabbing), full screen windowed solved the freezing but we installed the game on SSD anyway. No problems since then.
