(*) (*) (*) SSEScript (*) (*) (*)



SSEScript is a tool to replace the Creation Kit's default script editor. It provides the same functionality, as well as dozens of other features - some the same as other script editors, like Sublime Papyrus, and many unique to SSE. (You may find a list of all the included features below.) SSE is my way of giving back to the wonderful modding community.

This is a tool strictly for Nexus modders, not mod users. If you don't understand it or the code being used, then this tool is not for you. It is used for the practice of Skyrim scripting.

After five years of updates and adding new tools to this program, also we can't forget to mention all the sleepless night trying to find bugs that always crawling away. ;)) In this version they are so many new feature and upgrade in it to make it the best papyrus script editor.

What is new in this release is a re thinking of the core and I think I got most of these bugs out. It's now compatible with Skyrim VR and Fallout 4 I think didn't try it and will be waiting for reply from the users. Also the settings are easier to use, almost recreate an application for the settings only. Added a function that will help me more for finding the errors, I get in average 1 error report every other month. So for me it's hard to see if it's an error cause on the client side or mine, now there is a check box checked by default to send me silently does important errors report and that will make a big difference. New is an auto settings backup, save settings and restore settings.

Also new in this version is that you can now choose your input and output folder, You can now decompile Pex by dragging it in the editor for some reason you must have at least one open script first for the drag and drop process to work, or open a pex from file menu. To be able to decompile you must follow the instructions in the help menu or in question and answer at the bottom of this description.

Hope you enjoy it :113:

Questions and Answers
I’m getting compilation failed?
Open the output window and check the errors, it will tell you which line failed.

I’m getting compilation failed cause to many line of unknown functions?
You are creating a script that use reference from another script, make sure those scripts are in the sources folder.

I’m getting compilation failed cause missing TESV_Papyrus_Flags.flg?
In the tool menu click the “Create TESV_Papyrus_Flags.flg”, then retry compiling.

I can't drag and drop files to open them?
It's because you are running the program as admin, so either you run the
program without admin privilege or you run windows explorer as admin.

I’m getting error file not found and I'm sure it's there, I double even triple check?
In most case you are running windows 10, win 10 is blocking access to the
folder, you need to allow the application in ransomware.
Other case would be your anti virus blocking access to the folder, do the save as above.

I don’t have a Yandex Translation Key how do I get it?
In menu Preferences click the “Yandex Translation Settings”, in the settings window click the “Get Yandex key here” create a free
user account and get a key, then enter it in the application.

Open Pex file is gray out?
First thing you must do is to download the Champollion a PEX to Papyrus decompiler

For Skyrim
Download link: Champollion for Skyrim
Extract file where ever you want. You must copy these 4 files in the SSEScript\Champollion\Skyrim folder
  • Champollion.exe
  • Decompiler.dll
  • Pex.dll
  • vcredist_x64.exe
For Fallout 4
Download link: Champollion for Fallout 4
Extract file where ever you want. You must copy the file Champollion.exe in the SSEScript\Champollion\Fallout folder.

Then restart or start SSEScript and in the menu file the "Open Pex File" will be enable, you can use that button to open the pex file or you can drag and drop as many as you want from windows explorer

Re: SSEScript

Hello! I would like to ask if it is possible to install this as a portable application on a flash drive. I do not have proper internet and I am working on a mod called "Spark of Lorkhan" and fixing or combining many mod scripts as well. I have the net framework. I was a family caregiver for my grandmother for almost a decade and she died recently. I lost the house and had to move into a camper multiple miles away from the nearest town. It is very hard to work with a web installer but as long as I can install it or even get the reg files and stuff needed, if this has them, to fully install this amazing software. My only internet is an old phone with no tethering capability. Is there a way to do this? I can make time to go to a library and obtain the files. It is really difficult and I am sorry to bother you. I thank everyone involved in making this gem. I wish and hope for the best for all of you and yours. I am sorry if this is not the place for this post. Thank you for any time and effort reading this and possibly answering!

Yes you can but on any pc you will use it you will have to create new preferences. just install it on any computer then copy the entire folder to your portable drive, first you use it you will have to go through all the settings again, settings are stored in data folder of the pc your using it.

The program only need internet to check for update and say hi to my server but won't stop the program from working
