"Avenge your death" issue

Hi, i downloaded this wonderful mod but i can't use it because my game crashes (almost) everytime i go to my corpse and try to resurrect it. Plus sometimes the game crashes while i'm running to the corpse, i have red a topic below about the same problem, seems that things go better if i lower AI Distance, but the problem is not completely solved. The major problem however is when i "re-take" my corpse, i think 9 times of 10 game crashes. I have followed all instructions in the readme, and when i'm so lucky that i can resurrect my PC i see all abilities are right. A strange thing is that when i activate the corpse "someone" shout to me things like "I will kill you " or "Your skill fails you" and then game crashes. I really want to use this mod, i can't see myself playing MW without this from now on..... :roll: Can it be solved in some way? I use MGE 3.3.2 and the internal MWSE, i red that an external MWSE is not completely compatible with MGE (well i've tried wth an external one too, but things didn't change).... sorry in advance for grammatical errors! :tongue:

A few others have had this issue as well.  It seems to be largely system dependent.  It works just fine for most.  I have that perhaps I'll make a version that avoids the script that I believe causes the crash.  The difference will simply be that you will have to grab your belongings out of a container instead.

Thank you, it would be really appreciated.Are you going to put a container near the corpse? I think it should be with unlimited space inside, but if there is a creature (that killed you, i.e.) on that space? And then the container should disappear after taking everything... Every solution is right if you solve this problem. Thank you again and good work!

I've made an alternate esp that should help.  I hope it does at least.  Since I never had the problem I can't really know.  So please test this and let me know how it works if you wouldn't mind.

It works essentially the same way, except that when you activate your corpse it will open as a container.  Then you can "Take All," after you close it you will come back to life.

You have been really quick! But I tested it and nothing changed...  :saddy:  The container appears with all the stuff, i take all, when the container disappears all is black with only the health/stamina/mana/abilities and the minimap displayed (and colored). In this moment the crash occurs. Oh another thing, i cannot reload a save made when im ghost, i don't know if this is normal... [Starting to think about buying a new computer......]

Hmm, then the problem isn't where I thought it was.  Back to the scripting board....

Have you figured out anything about this issue? I think I have tried everything i could, without MGE, with MGE (the last version 3.8.0), internal or external MWSE, disabling the fps optimizer... and it's not a conflict because I did run the mod alone, with the same results. Could this be really related to graphic card incompatibility or something like that?

Why do the "death/resurrection" mods seem to have the same crashes?
I don't remember what your scripts do, Fligg, it's been awhile since I looked, but this seems to be the same problem Max and I had with "Death..."

I wonder if maybe the game just executes scripts faster for some people that others? Faster computers and such?

It could be an engine issue: the game wasn't designed with the ability to ressurect the player in mind: when you die it's game over, man.

The problem doesn't occur when the player is resurrected as far as the game engine is concerned though.  That happens immediately upon death.  The CTD is happening when the player activates their "corpse" to actually come back to life.  It's a complicated script that runs, I'm guessing right now there that it has a reference issue.

Yep, that's the same exact thing that plagued "Death..."
It happened to enough people that I think it hurt the mod in the end. I CTD a couple times from it, but that was rare for me.

I can't remember if I had the same problem with your mod, Fligg.
