Starts crashing after a couple of hours

Hello. I installed some mods, played normal Oblivion for about 5 hours to make sure it works, had no crashes at all. Then I decided to add Morroblivion, installed it, played for 3 hours with a new character, then had a crash while walking to recruit the ex-Telvanni for the mages guild. I made a save one step away from the place where this crash occurs and tried removing other mods one by one, it still crashed even when only Morroblivion and its required mods remained. So I made another character, went there and it didn't crash. I played for 3 more hours and the game started crashing again, but in another place. I suspect that something is breaking my saves. Anyway, playing for 3 hours after removing mods one by one would take quite some time, so I decided to ask here. Here's the load order:

Are there any incompatibilities? As I said, it worked fine for Oblivion. Thanks.

I'm having a similar problem

I'm having a similar problem with 0.65. I try to enter the cell with the ebony mine by caldera, and right when it changes cells it crashes every single time. It was working pretty well before. I had maybe 3 crashes in 6 hours. The only other mods I have are character overhaul with blockhead.

After a little digging around

After a little digging around, I found that people recommend using the purge cell buffer mod. I got that mod, and the problem stopped. I used the one that purges every load rather than every cell change. I think I had to do something like that last time I played years ago. Why not make that mod a requirement on the install page?

The random crashes are on the

The random crashes are on the known issues list.

They happen on cell changes, at least for me. Examples are south of Seyda Neen or northwest of Pelagiad. It doesn't help to restart the game. The crash will happen at the same spot again. If you move to a spot shortly before it crashes, save the game. Then open the console and enter the command "pcb" (purge cell buffers). That will allow you to move forward without crashing the game.

You can use a mod that purges cell buffers automatically, but it's not guaranteed to completely fix the crashing.
