hi there i have problem was wondering if anyone experiance the same thing. towards the end of the diplomatic immunity quest where you have to go inside the sleeping giants in my game just loads the screen is black but you can see the smoke and the level bar and you can hear the music but it never loads. doesn any one have any ideas on how to fix this? thanks in advance.
The eternal loading screen is quite common in Skyrim.
How many times have you tried to enter the inn?
Sometimes reloading a previous save works... if you go on the load screen on the games menu it might show the latest autosave as being inside the inn. Don't bother trying to load that, cos it won't work... instead try to load the save/autosave before it, and then try to enter the inn... might work, sorry if it doesn't.
I just had one tonight when I tried to leave the White Phial in Windhelm... same thing... black screen, smoke, music... no load.
I also have the same problem, not sure whats happening. Also, i tried all of the above and even started the quest diplomatic immunity again but it still didn't work. Anything else would be really appreciated
It might help if you go to steam, right click Skyrim, click properties, go to the Local Files tab, and click Verify Cache (or something like that). If there's anything wrong with Vanilla Skyrim, that should fix it.
