How to delete Skyrim locked Quests
i just spent the last 2 nights nutting this one out :), finally cracked it
Skyrim:Return to Grace - UESPWiki
I had a quest log entry Speak to Greta about going to the Temple of Divines.
there were no quest markers and it is definately 100% locked out quest. even reseting the quest just adds a new log entry so you end up with two.
Mr. Hex editor here......hex out the log entry :D
what i did was,
1. transfered my ps3 save to pc
2. loaded up my pc save
3. located my stupid quest on uesp - SolitudeFreeform03
4. console command (getstage solitudefreeform) returns 200(this is not good) then (save myfile 1) >this adds a log about the save file
5. waited for the dump ~2-3min
6. loaded up the new txt file and searched for all instances of (SolitudeFreeform03) and the quest name itself (Return to Grace )
7. kept a note of all the hex formid's to the left of all the instances
8. loaded up myfile.ess using a hex editor
9. searched for all form ids. (NOTE: must search with "SolitudeFreeform03" (0x000C7D33) becomes the bytes: 4C 7D 33
10. replaced all instances of what was found with zeros.
11. i had 6 instances of form ids so i blanked them all out
12. saved myfile.ess with the changes made
13. loaded up skyrim, loaded up myfile.ess
14. checked the log entry, it toggles but nothing happens. (this is actually a good thing, if its locked, it means its locked :) )
15. (getstage solitudefreeform) returns 0 <<<<<<<finally.
15. (setstage solitudefreeform03 20). < this actually updates the locked out quest and does not create a new entry.
16. sit back, slam the laptop shut, stick the finger up at the game and post on psx-scene.com.
This vague guide will actually FIX ALL LOCKED OUT LOG ENTRIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Speak to Greta about going to the Temple of Divines
any other log entries that are locked
the way this method works is , it actaully removes all variables associated with any particular quest. it deletes all stages and what you have said previously.
i know i am going to hate this but ........i will write a better guide than this.
