I know, I know. I finally sat down and started playing Skyrim (PC version). I have about 6 hours into it and I'm growing increasingly frustrated with menu system that does the following:
1. Right now I can't move between the perks to see the options. I'm locked on Destruction and no amount of mouse moves, key strokes nothing will budge it off that choice. I get the sound effect that I'm at the end of a menu no matter what I try to do to move to another perk. I can explore the Destruction perk and I'm sure I could select one of those perks if I wanted to - I just can't move to say Heavy Armor or any other choice. It's been like this for 2 levels now.
2. The other menus are freaky as well. Sometimes when I'm in the dialog selection screen no mater what I do (mouse or movement keys) I can only select 1 of the speech options. An alt-F4 (can't select quit from the menu either) and reboot makes it work for a short period of time.
3. Inventory lists with too many items to list on the screen at once fly by at the speed of light from top to bottom. Want an item in the middle? Too bad.
4. Saving the game - you can quick save, but you can't select 'New Save' for all of the above reasons.
I made the .inf changes to disable mouse smoothing/acceleration. I turned off vsync also via .inf changes. They seem to fix the issue - but it may just be due to the reboot that it's working for a while before it starts again.
How did all of you manage multiple characters? I bought the game aproximately 2 months ago, played it for 3 hours then my son played and his character and the saves for that character overwrote mine? Now I won't let him play for fear he will erase all of my progress.
The game itself is pretty good. I'm not sure it's worth the frustration however.
I did read in one place that my mouse may be the culprit. I find this hard to believe as I haven't had these issues with other games and I don't mind using the movement keys. I do believe my video drivers are up to date as well but will check that when I get home.
Then again maybe I just need to upgrade/buy a new PC - it's been a while...
Thanks for any advice I get.
