Bethesda unable to find solution for Dawnguard on PS3 -- future DLC in question as well

:(

EDIT: I started Batman: Arkham City again the other night because I was still waiting for the Dawnguard DLC. If things continue like this, I guess I'll start up Fallout 3 again, I've had an itching to play that recently...

I was really disappointed you couldn't adopt children in the original game, so it's cool. I actually had a mod that let you but haven't played in a while.

After 60 hours (and many distractions) I've finally finished the main quest line. I thought that the final battle was a little anti climatic but looking forward to completing the various other quest lines now and then eventually the DLC.

Has anyone here found that they have movement issues in Dragonborn when the read a dark book? My character loses almost all control. I can walk forward and turn. I can fire a bow but the arrow goes nowhere and my shouts seem to simply die. But other than that I am helpless. Also cannot save during this time.

The last time I made my way to the exit point, and even when I re-entered tamriel I still could not move (or save or anything) and had to quit.

Now, I KNOW it is likely a mod, even tho' I reinstalled and kept my mods to a minimum. I've got some ideas but I wonder if anyone else has had the problem so I can compare notes. My *guess* is a skeleton issue. When Dawnguard came out I ran into an issue with skeleton_female.hkx causing all the Ewer animations to fail... it was installed with some custom movement files from a mod. I am guessing this issue is similar because I do so love my idles and alternate runs/walks and other than texture changes, SkyUI, lockpicking, I mostly have motion files. I've even limited them this time but...

Yeah. So anyone else who has seen this, please let me know!

Mod list please?

Hmm I havent had issues with the dark books and I use custom skeleton and animations.

You do use FNIS for your animations?

Not much in terms of new landscape in Solstheim. I was under the impression that the Solstheim island was closer to Morrowind than Skyrim. Mostly just looks Skyrim themed to me (in both landscapes and dungeons so far).

Just completed the main story of the Dragonborn DLC. I loved Apocrypha. I also have the Stalhrim Armor, I am not a fan of the helm but the rest is nice.

Well it is part of Skyrim, so what do you expect?? It USED to be part of Morrowind till the war.

I know I love it and the staff! The armor is sexy!!

Guess I'm just tired of wondering around snowcapped mountain landscape and was hoping for more whimsical Morrowind-like landscape.

Hearthfire DLC was actually pretty fun. It was a much needed "gold drop" in the game because the game itself doesn't give you a heck of a whole lot to spend your gold on. Here are my complaints from the Hearthfire DLC:

* Adopted children calling me "Pa" in game is creepy. So is the wife. It is an interesting take, but still "Sims" creepy for me.

* I found a cool drum in a dungeon and thought this would make a good gift for one of my kids, but there wasn't an option to give it to them. I could give my child a dagger, but not a drum. Hmmm..

* I'm not bothered by the lack of customization of the house. I think they exaggerated the amount of control in the DLC description, but ultimately I was fine with the build up. What I don't like is how difficult it is to place items on shelves and generally do "my own" decorating in the house. If I accidently grab a decorative cup off of a table, its a bitch to try and put it back on the table right-side up.

* Even though it is a decent enough money sink, I don't think the developers went far enough. I'd say all the building costs need to be about 2x - 3.5x more expensive and require more rare items. I started building my home at level 20 and by level 25 I had already built everything I could on my house and have it nearly 100% furnished. For anyone level >35 it should be trivial to completely build your house and furnish it within a few hours. Iron is the scarcest building material. Perhaps the amulets for the shrines can be a little more of a hassle to get (some of them). Probably the only thing I'm looking out for now while I adventure are the amulets for the shrine. I think it would have actually been funner if paced out a bit more... I suppose I can start working on the other properties....

i still have an issue where i try to buy the stuff for my entry way and they tell me i do not have enough money, and i have millions of gold. other than that I like all the DLC with Dragonborn being my favorite by far. Even have my house in RavenRock now.

Everytime I attempt the Dragonborn DLC, I get my ass kicked by the side quest in the temple. Level 25 Mage. I have a level 56 thief character that I could probably play through it with, but I'm tired of that character and was ready for a new one. Also, that character is as old as v1.0 of Skyrim and I can just feel the bugs seeping into the game (as well as the ridiculous load times even on my SSD). Everywhere I read said I shouldn't have a problem, but I don't want to play on any difficulty less than Expert. I only go back down to Adept when I just need to get pass a part and am tired of banging my head against the wall.

I'll try it again when I hit level 30. I started playing again JUST to play the Dragonborn DLC. Dawnguard was easily accessible after level 10, but Dragonborn seems a lot more challenging. Its a good thing, because I feel like the difficulty curve throughout Skyrim is a little wonky. The game seems hardest at first, then gets really easy from like level 15-45 and then starts to get hard again around level 55.

This game is still boss though. I'd say it was my fav game in 2011, 2012, and it is starting to look like my fav for 2013 as well :D.

Hah! Those stupid mobs in the temple at the beginning of Dragonborn just had high fire resist. No wonder I was hitting my head on the wall trying to kill them. I mowed over them with some Ice Storms and have so far found the rest of the DLC to be pretty easy on Adept...might need to crank it up to Expert.

Does anyone know if there is an addon for like a character selection screen? This game REALLY needs a character selection screen (like most RPGs have now-a-days). The saved file system is pretty...dated...

I can't figure out how to get a Riekling Warrior as a 'creature pet'. I finished The Chief of Thirsk Hall but all the Rieklings just grunt at me when I talk to them.

After you help them a few times they will follow you if you ask them. But only the ones from that place...
