In Skyrim I'm playing a Khajiit thief/assassin type, so as you can imagine Sneaking is one of the more important skills. In my most recent saves, though, my character appears to be sneaking all the time; he moves more slowly, rolls instead of sprinting, and his animation shows him crouching. However, no-one else in the game seems to notice! I can't make sneak attacks or pickpocket, and it's nearly impossible to move around undetected. This makes the Dark Brotherhood quests more interesting, perhaps, but a little too spectacular for my tastes.
I've tried remapping the controls so that 'sneak' is on a different button but to no avail. Pressing the sneak button has no effect whatsoever. I'm assuming this is just another bug and I'll have to go back to an earlier save, but it's not the first time I've come across the problem, and I was wondering if anyone else has noticed it too. Cheers!
