sResourceArchiveList

This is a list of BSAs to be loaded without a plugin. The default value for this setting is incorrect if left out of the INI file. Unless you are using Mod Organizer, which automatically handles BSAs (it does not matter if you are using its BSA management or not), you need to include this line in your INI with Skyrim - Misc.bsa, Skyrim - Shaders.bsa, Skyrim - Textures.bsa, Skyrim - Interface.bsa, Skyrim - Animations.bsa, Skyrim - Meshes.bsa, Skyrim - Sounds.bsa. This prevents incorrect BSA handling.

Default is SKYRIM - MISC.BSA, SKYRIM - SHADERS.BSA, SKYRIM - TEXTURES.BSA, SKYRIM - MESHES.BSA, SKYRIM - ANIMATIONS.BSA, SKYRIM - VOICES.BSA, SKYRIM - VOICES2.BSA, SKYRIM - INTERFACE.BSA, SKYRIM - SOUNDS.BSA (although default set by the game from the Skyrim_default.ini is Skyrim - Misc.bsa, Skyrim - Shaders.bsa, Skyrim - Textures.bsa, Skyrim - Interface.bsa, Skyrim - Animations.bsa, Skyrim - Meshes.bsa, Skyrim - Sounds.bsa).

sResourceArchiveList2

This is a continuation of the list of BSAs to be loaded without a plugin. The default value for this setting is blank if left out of the INI file. Unless you are using Mod Organizer, which automatically handles BSAs (it does not matter if you are using its BSA management or not), you need to include this line in your INI with at least Skyrim - Voices.bsa, Skyrim - VoicesExtra.bsa. This prevents incorrect BSA handling, which is the cause of the infamous Esbern's missing voice bug.

Default is blank. (although default set by the game from the Skyrim_default.ini is Skyrim - Voices.bsa, Skyrim - VoicesExtra.bsa).
