Mod author for Skyrim and, to a lesser extent, Oblivion, specializing in Papyrus scripting, reverse-engineering by way of disassembly (given a suitable foothold e.g. offsets in script extender source code), and OBSE/SKSE DLL authorship.

As of this revision, my edits typically center on engine-level functionality for Skyrim and Oblivion (especially in talk pages) and on documenting quest content for ESO.

Oblivion file-handling research
A comprehensive examination of how Oblivion handles files, including overrides between loose files and BSAs. This includes a full translation of all program code related to ArchiveInvalidation and a full examination of what BSA redirection is, what it isn't, and what it fixes.
