Are there crash logs for Skyrim?

I have crashed twice in a row while mixing healing potions.

Is there a log I can go look at to see what I am doing that is causing the crash? (Or do I just need to lay off the potions for a while?)

  • How do I get better at sneaking?
  • What difference do gems make in enchanting weapons?
  • Why can't I do anything any more?
  • What do these symbols mean?
  • How long does it take for plants to respawn?
  • Is there a way to use console commands in the console version of Skyrim?
  • Why does armor rating decrease when I enchant an item?
  • Can I buy a horse for my follower?
  • What is the minimum level I need to be to get the strongest version of leveled items?

  • Is there any way of improving claw attacks by Khajiits?
  • Can I alter just the dual-wielding controls?

    At C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\GameOverlayUI.exe.log you will find this helpful message:

    There is a dialog in Steam to allow you to pass arguments to the game. It could be that one of them is for debug mode.

    I found that it would start crashing at a savepoint more often if there were a lot of dead bodies scattered around. I went into the console and marked them for deletion, and then it got past that point. I also managed to delete a small lake in the process.

    But it still crashes.

    Go to My Documents/My Games/Skyrim and open up Skyrim.ini.

    Then add this:


    If the section [Papyrus] already exists, then you might add it without the section identifier. Next time you start the game you should see a new folder called "logs" inside that folder. And there is another folder called "scripts" and inside that 4 new log files.
