This is not needed when you start a new game !

This Article will explain in detail step by step how to install Anna NPC’s on an existing save game and remove the older versions of Anna_NPC’s and / or Anduniel mods from the save game.

9.) Save the changes.
(You can choose to over write or give new name and make back up or not.)

10.) Uncheck Anna_NPC’s.esp and FOL_Anduniel.esp in your mod manager.
(if you only have 1 of the 2 mods then just uncheck that one.)

(see image below.)
Click Fix

16b.) In the Scripts section type in the box “FOL_” and delete all the scripts that start with “FOL_“.

(you can choose to over write or give new name and make back up or not.)

17.) Cleaning out Anna_NPC’s Mod Scripts from your save game.

(You can skip step 17a if you already did that in step 16a.)
17a.) In the Scripts section Click “Fix all #->” and “FixScriptInstances” buttons.
(see in images below.)
Click Fix

17b.) In the Scripts section type in the box “AN_” and delete all the scripts that start with “AN_“.

20.) Start the game again and load the save created in step 19.

21.) Save the game and exit game.

Step 20 and 21 may seem to look redundant but they are not!!
(After step 19 the game is still searching and trying to load missing scripts and mod forms!!  By loading the saving it again all missing forms and scripts are no longer looked for by the game.)

22.) If you want you can check and verify if everything went okay.
Start the SaveTool and open the save created in step 21.

Clicking “Fix all #->” button should result in:
“0 scripts and 0 instances removed.”

Clicking “FixScriptInstances” button should result in:
“Removing orphan script instances..”
“0 script instances removed.”

Typing “FOL_” , “AN_” , “DAR_” , etc. etc. in the script section box.
Should not bring up any scripts beginning with that.

24.) ALL CLEAN !
(Whoohoo 🙂 )

25.) Install the NEW Anna NPC’s version 2.0 !
