I've been trying to find out how to get Nemesis Engine to work properly, but when I update, I get the following error message: "ERROR(2006)". How do you fix this?

Initializing engine update

ERROR(2006): Missing behavior file. The behavior file name must be in this format ("Nemesis_<filename>.xml") and it must be located in the same path as the hkx counterpart. Please contact the mod author.
File: scripts

Failed to update engine

Screenshot of error message

I've searched and found out that Error 2006 occurs when a creature mod is missing or something.

These are just the folders under my meshes all of them works and there's only the arvak creature mod here.

  • From the nemesis creature behavior compatibility's post: "NEMESIS IS NOT FULLY COMPATIBLE WITH CREATURES This don't make Creature sex/FNIS animations work with Nemesis, this only allows behaviour modders to do creature behaviour edits" I understand that as any mod that'd add creature should create behavior file that's compatible with nemesis engine, and I am guessing that your mod(s) are not compatible with it. Might be wrong though. And I won't be digging which mod is causing that.

  • the thing is though I have only 2 creature mods diverse dragons and arvak replace but even if i disable thos mods or even if I disable all of the mods except nemesis ofc I still get the same error Commented Jan 5, 2023 at 1:59
  • My hypothesis was wrong then. Have you tried to reinstall the mods in question? A reddit post claims that reinstalling the mod(s) and rebooting their PC fixed the problem.

  • Can you search your installation folder for a "scripts" file? I don't remember Skyrim having a non-extension file like that. That might go a long way to indicate potential incompatible mods.

    @Joachim: That's not what I meant. I'm suggesting that some mod has been incorrectly installed, such that its top-level scripts directory has somehow ended up under the meshes directory, where Nemesis can find it and complain that it doesn't know what a "scripts" is or how to deal with it.
