I need lots of halp D:

Halp me!

I've been playing Oblivion again since I have gotten bored. Since my computer is decent enough to run high res mods etc I decided to start using some. I also used various armor etc mods but here is where my problem began. After applying the mods and starting up the game, everything seemed perfectly fine. All of a sudden I heard what sounded like a gunshot and just about shat my pants because it was pretty loud. Wherever I go, I randomly hear this gunshot type sound that occurs every 6-10 seconds and never stops. Even if I hide in a cave or frolic in the plains with bunnies. Is it possible that one of these mods may be causing it, if so, how can I stop it without causing the mod to cease working. Here is picture of all of my mods that are currently enabled, Problem 500 points to the person who solves my problem without having my turn any of my mods off.

    Nice wallpaper.

    Click the Oblivion.esm on since it's a base file which is required for everything to work properly.

    Also, turn off the following:

    Natural weathers with darker nights ( either have the HDR on or the non-hdr, not both )
    Natural weathers ( Either have the HDR on or the non-hdr, not both )

    Restart Oblivion and try again.

    Good luck, tell me how it goes.

    If it still makes the "Gun shot" sound please let me look at your sounds file.

    C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion\Data\Sound

    If one is FX then double click it and show me the files inside.

    Have you added any mods that add sounds?

    Also, are you sure it's from the game and not your speakers / headset screwing up?

    I just disabled the guard overhaul and it seems to have stopped. It seems weird how that was causing it since it does nothing to sound, only the modding of the AI system for guards.

    Maybe the Guard Overhaul mod was installed / setup incorrectly, You didn't happen to put the Guard Naming tool on did you?

    I heard that causes some problems.

    Natural weather needs the latest oblivion patch. If you don't have it, it could be this. Natural weather has several thunder sounds i thought so yeah. That could be "the shotgun sound"

    Yes, but still make a backup just incase things screw up.

    Your saved games are located in My Documents > My Games > Oblivion > saves :)

    Yes, it was already taken off. If you read my previous post I fixed it a little while ago.

    Of course, now I just updated and it fucked my game up. What a great problem solver. :(

    Never mind, fixed i.

    Oh yeah, i see it now!
    what do you mean fucked up? You could try taking off all of your mods, and putting them back on one by one.

    I have a new problem, it seems that my textures for some ground tiles have been fucked up. I've tried turning off all mods then turning them back on and it still doesn't work. Does someone have any idea of how I can fix this without reisntalling it?
