Multi-file Merge Up Procedure

Step 7. Apply 'Merge Overrides' Script.

Be sure to have used the "Copy as Override" command on the selected records in Step 6, before proceeding. It's easy to confuse these two steps as they are similar but have significant differences.

Now that all records in all the loaded, merged ModB plugins are overrides, you can now select them all (white-, green-, yellow-, and red- backgrounds), right-click on one and use the "Apply Script" command with the script "Merge overrides into master.psc" (bundled in TESEdit 5 v3.1.3+) to merge overrides into the parent (ModA) only.

  • xEdit will not merge overridden records by default; this script was created for this very purpose. (Thank you Zilav).
  • You need to select the sub-records, not just the "record type" when using the script.
  • The script will not copy 'injected' records even if selected. Don't worry about it.
  • Try not to use "Deep Copy" as it doesn't always work as expected. Try with right-clicking on a different sub-record if that is your only option.
  • Always check to make sure all records are merged (now either green- or yellow-backgrounds) when the script is done.
  • Ignore red-backgrounds, which are "losing conflicts" and being dropped from the result).
  • Orange/olive-text on red-backgrounds are 'Identical To Master'(ITM) "conflict winners" and won't be merged.
