Last Updated: 7-5-2006 12:15 PM CDT ============= 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…
I've launched a new project called The Oblivion Texture Overhaul (TOTO), which is a guide to all the great mods out there that improve the appearance of Oblivion. I'm hoping it will grow into an ongoing community project for information about texture replacers, including comparison screenshots, installation instructions, download mirror listings, etc.
