Your best Skyrim "Awesome pictures"? - Page 797

post #7961 of 12248
Come on guys! Someone help me!! I can't get the game to even launch now! It CTD after the dragon logo! HELP!
post #7962 of 12248
I've been playing Skyrim on my laptop (A8 + 6750m) and it handles the game decently on a mix of med/high settings along with the Bethesda HD texture pack. I finally got around to installing it on my desktop rig and I'm wondering how good I can make it look and still be playable. What mods can my 2500k/5870 handle @1080p? Any screenshots from someone with a similar rig would be appreciated.

The dragon logo comes up and the I get a CTD! I used to play it on my setup back in October and then started getting crashes during gaming (had a TON of mods). So I stopped playing and now wanted to try Lifeshield's ENB. I downloaded it and installed the ENB but the game doesn't even start! IIt's not the ENB either because the same thing happens with other ENBs.

HELP!
What version of SKSE do you have installed? Could you post of a screenshot of the main page of the generated BOSS report?

If you want to, you can uncheck all of the plugins in your Plugins tab of NMM and that should disable them. Be sure not to uncheck Update.esm, Dawnguard.esm, or Hearthfires.esm though! Also, you may not be able to load one of your old saves while doing this, so just start a new save and see if you can at least get to the intro sequence on the cart.

Edit: If you aren't even getting to the main menu. Then it has nothing to do with your Plugins. It's either a corrupt ENB installation (d3d9.dll file) or you have a stray config file somewhere.

Let us know what you find out.

Thanks for replying to my post!

I ended up uninstalling ALL mods using NMM except SkyUI and SKSE scripts (I'm running SKSE 0.1.6.4). The game starts fine and I just finished Redwater Den for Dawnguard! biggrin.gif

Lifeshield's ENB is installed as well and it looks stunning - except the DoF is way too intense (how do we lower that effect? I don't want to turn it off completely).

Now, I will have to enable the mods one by one but I am going to download the latest STEP guide and go from there.

Here's my BOSS log for now:



Here's the other page of the BOSS log showing the error (Something conflicting with the Realistic Lighting Patcher and Unofficial Skyrim Patch?):



The game starts fine now even with this error. So it must have been some mod or mods conflicting that rendered the game unplayable. For now, it at least works! I loaded the previous save (# 195 lol) without error (although it takes about 3 minutes to load) but there were no mods (doh!).

Here's a quick snap w/ Lifeshield's ENB @ 5160x2560:

You really should clean your master files. It's easy.

Lifeshield, I'm using your ENB and it looks amazing (just got Skyrim to work again (after 4 months)).

The VRAM reading on that blue box on the top left (when I hit Shift+Enter) shows "1379"; does that mean only 1.3GB is being used or is it 4 - 1.379 = 2.6GB being used? At my resolution (5160x2560), I'm getting about 45 FPS in most areas but sometimes it stutters like crazy and at others it's 60 FPS (smooth). I changed the FPS limit on that box from 30 to 60. Should I not have done that?

Hey Lifeshield, what was the suggestion you gave that user on the Nexus about Climates of Tamriel? I tried to look back to it but it was taken down from Nexus. Thanks.

First you'll need to do a manual install because with NMM it isn't installing nights properly.

 

From what I remember install brightest nights and hazardous/hardcore dungeons then adjust the nights so that they're a little brighter(best thing to do is just play with the different esps and find a lighting balance for you). Don't use Realistic Lighting with it or it will make it a mess.

Note this is just off the top of my head from when I was messing around with it. I couldn't really find anything I liked with it personally which is why I don't use it.

I think that's what you have free if I recall correctly. I don't really bother with it as I have a weak rig anyway. There's should be some info about it on enbdev.com in the 0.141 binary thread.

 

I'm not currently sure what effect changing FPS will have on performance as I haven't tried it with newer binaries. It will increase load times though.

sweet. Thanks for the help. If I manage to get a good setting, I'll let you know and if you like it too, you could host it as a CoT compatible version.
