What works

Can edit plugins using most of the available tools for normal use as if it were Windows. I've created mods entirely using CSE with no fundamental issue.

What does not

Script editor (Avalon Edit) is mostly broken. Can't be resized, creates wine error messages, font does not display if you get it working.

Script editor seems to function well after a workaround

The extra render window tools and info can be a touch buggy, I recommend not using them. They don't offer anything new, just quicker ways to control size and placement and the like.

I have on one occasion had CSE not save plugins properly, causing scripts to not work. Closing and re-opening CSE seemed to fix it, not sure if it is an actual bug or not.

Lip generator works without issue, it called CS 1.0 just fine


To get the script editor "working", resize the window while the error message is on screen. Then press "Continue", the script editor is now functional

No font is displayed, so I copy scripts from a text file and paste it into the script editor window, overwriting all data in the process. If the script editor error window pops up, just hit continue on the wine error dialog boxes and continue as normal. Its slower, but the only way I've found to get around it. You can't disable Avalon Edit and have CSE function

The crashing can be worked around with a command, which disabled HW acceleration for AvalonEdit

wine reg add "HKCU\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Avalon.Graphics" /v DisableHWAcceleration /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

What was not tested

Didn't test path grid gen (didn't ever work for me on Windows and I don't have a need for it)

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

Needs VC++ 2017, and .Net 4.5 or newer. Recommended to run in Windows 7 mode. Doesn't support ENB at all, disable the dll if you have it installed

HowTo / Notes

Working around AvalonEdit/script editor crashing

There is a WPF bug for certain .NET apps that cause them to crash/not behave properly. AvalonEdit is affected. The following workaround disables hardware acceleration which seems to mitigate the issue.

wine reg add "HKCU\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Avalon.Graphics" /v DisableHWAcceleration /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
