Fighters Guild Telvanni Agents repeatable CtD

When approaching Caldera on the way to Caldera Mine (from any direction, but have been going on the roads) for the quest, the game locks up then CtD's. Can save right beforehand, but after loading the save and attempting to continue walking ahead, crash happens again.

Mods have been sorted and ordered by LOOT. No sure if the vampire mod affects Morroblivion's Vvardenfel Vampirism, but don't believe it to be responsible as the CtD occurs without it as well.

I've been trying to track

I've been trying to track down variations on this CTD -- basically a crash as you are moving towards specific area, usually when a new cell has loaded or trying to load.  Open your "\Documents\My Games\Oblivion\Oblivion.ini" file and try to find this code block:

[BackgroundLoad]

bBackgroundCellLoads=0

...

bUseBackgroundFileLoader=0


If those two lines are set to 1, try setting them to 0.  Let me know if that helps.

bBackgroundCellLoads was set

bBackgroundCellLoads was set to 1, setting it to 0 fixed the problem. Causes a stutter now and then when it loads a new area, but I can live with that to avoid a crash like that. Thanks!

I'm glad it worked for you! 

I'm glad it worked for you!  If the stutter gets annoying, you could probably set bBackgroundCellLoads back to 1 after getting past the area causing crashes and making a new save file.  Just set it back to 1 if you ever experience a crash like this again.
