SOLVE YOUR ARCHIVEINVALIDATION PROBLEMS FOR GOOD!
Updated 7-1-2006 11:15 AM CDT

Timeslip's Oblivion Mod Manager (0.7.10 or later) and BSA Patcher provide an archive invalidation method that will rename textures in your BSA files so you never have to worry about ArchiveInvalidation problems again. This method is vastly superior to standard invalidation methods.

This BSA alteration method of invalidation has been tested by the ArchiveInvalidation Explained Research Team and adoption of this method in the community is rapidly growing. It has proven extremely stable. You should probably make a backup of your BSA files if you have the space (or a DVD-burner) just in case, but we haven't seen any corruption issues.

OBMM and BSA Patcher will keep track of which files have been renamed in your BSAs and provide a "Remove BSA edits" function to rollback any changes they have made to your BSA.

Assuming you have OBMM 0.7.10 or later already, and have already installed/…

NEWS FLASH: DELETE YOUR ARCHIVEINVALIDATION.txt file!
Working closely with the contributors to this thread, Timeslip has created a new invalidation method that is is vastly superior to standard invalidation methods.

Timeslip's Oblivion Mod Manager (0.7.10 or later) and BSA Patcher provide an archive invalidation method that will rename textures in your BSA files so you never have to worry about ArchiveInvalidation problems again.

This BSA alteration method of invalidation has been fully tested by the ArchiveInvalidation Explained Research Team (see credits below) and adoption of this method in the community is rapidly growing. It has proven extremely stable.

I've created a separate thread to try and get the word out about this new invalidation method…
