Bashed Patch causing CTD during Bethesda intro video seconds after launch

Hi all, I recently have developed a problem with my game.

I have switched to Vortex as i was having issues launching the game reliably from Bash, though now the same problem occurs with vortex.

Basically, when i have all my mods loaded (including the bashed patch) the game crashes to desktop during the Bethesda logo intro screen.

Without the bashed patch selected but my merge patch and all other mods the game launches no problem.

Here is my load order:

42 Maskar's Oblivion Overhaul.esp>

Again, my game only crashes when my bashed patch is active. I do have a few tweaks active but nothing that requires a missing mod or anything.

I am sure i am missing something really obvious here though i have been using bashed patches for years without trouble.

My game was running fine until i added Maskar's mod though i have been using that before with no issues at all.

If it matters, i am using a combination of OBMM, Wrye Bash and Vortex for their appropriate mods (so i can be sure they installed as they are meant to).

Can anyone help me? I have been at this for hours and i know how important a bashed patch is and don't understand why it suddenly crashes my game.

I am happy with my mods and load order (as sorted by BOSS and hand tweaked the couple it didn't order properly) and am simply at this last step before i can play.

I have searched for this and found others with similar problems, but it turned out they had tweaks active without the mods they rely on (which i haven't).


Could anyone give me some ideas i haven't thought of? for now i am playing without a bashed patch but i do want it back in once i figure out what about it the game doesn't like.

Thank you for your time.
