ok so first, i tried doing steam install as installing without steam isn't a thing according to the entirely of the internet? everything and i mean everything told me steam is needed for skyrim so if there is a way without show me please? because i am legit confused on that part. moving on, i tried the mklink with the 10 mb partition but that just told me x:Skyrim couldnt be found? and it was 100% correct linked. next i tried editing the modorganizer.int to reflect the C drive copied and pasted the directions but then looking in the int file parts of it would be steamapps\etcetc then / which i think isnt right to have both \ and / in the file pathing? but doing that and opening mod organizer didnt have a single mod on either said and i noticed in the settings the mod dictionary was typoed and was missing the S on steamapps, fixing that gave me the mods on left panel (260 total?) and 0 on the right so i dont know honestly anymore. lol, currently i got no skyrim installed i deleted everything and am about to flip a table. first time modding skyrim and i dont see how people can tolerate it.
