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…
Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since my last update. I guess I've been rather busy. :)
Lately I've been making some huge progress on the FCOM: Convergence project, as well as working steadily on a final release of Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul 1.32 and the Martigen's Monster Mod add-on for OOO. Hopefully I'll be able to get all of this stuff done and released over the next month or so.
The recent death of TESSource forced a major rush of activity updating The Oblivion Texture Overhaul and The Oblivion Quest List with new links to the reborn TESNexus service, but significant new additions to these guides have temporarily been stalled until I can finish my FCOM/OOO/MMM work. I have continued to make small tweaks here and there, of course, including quite a few updates to the Oblivion Mods FAQ. Oh yeah, I also published some new fixes and tweaks you can find on my mod list.
