For those that play this game in 3D which looks so good, I actually think they should demo games at movie theatres were 3D can be seen for those without the glasses / setup at home!

Anyway, this is isn't mine... I found it on a forum - but some may find it useful smile.gif

Nvidia has had the SLI profiles out for the game since it launched. If it's not using your second 560, do a clean (safe mode driver sweeper) reinstall of 285.79 drivers and then reverify that SLI is enabled in NVCP. That should enable your second card.

On my new character I've completely avoided the main quest, after the opening sequence I went on my own way. Game is pretty different without the dragon encounters. Figured I'd make a name for myself before starting the main quest. Heck, my other guy I only did a few quest for the main story, I just had so many unfinished quest or partially completed quest that it felt tedious going through and trying to remember what was happening. So I figured I'd make a new guy to take a break from that.

Heck, by the time I get to the main story I should be a high enough level that all dragons are a pain to deal with, since I'm sure they scale based on your level. Never liked my first encounter when I was like level 2 and the guards pretty much killed it for me lol.

The dragons are always a joke. Once you have a decent set of gear, they fall easily. I believe, instead of scaling enemies like in Oblivion, Bethesda just introduced different "levels" of enemies. So you'll have, for example, Dragons, Blood/Frost Dragons, Elder Dragons, and Ancient Dragons; same thing you may see in Bandits, etc.

makes dragon battles silly. Just beat on them when they come down. I'm considering tossing my armor and going with crappy armor just to make the game more interesting. I'm also gonna' raise the difficulty to master. I'm gonna' try to do every side quest available.

Master difficulty with no elemental resistances makes dragon's a credible threat. With 500+ health, I can be 1-hit-killed by a breath attack. Their melee attacks are still woefully underpowered unfortunately, but maybe if you took your armor off it really would be more fun. Just remember to put it back on before fighting the next Draugr Murderboss Deathking.

Glad to hear that. I believe someone just answered your SLI question, so good luck with that as well! thumb.gif

I am currently finishing all of my remaining quests before looking for new ones. I also don't even bother wearing armor, with the sole exception of Ancient Shrouded Boots for the muffled movements. Shrouded shoes just does not look right with my Nocturnal Robe. Dragons almost kill me if I get caught in their breath, but I can still one shot them with a quick sneak attack.

BTW, is it just me or is the game a little too excepting of what you do and not hold the player too accountable? For example, Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I was the Thane or whatever of Solitude and was helping the Imperial regain Skyrim... then mid quest I decided to do some more assassinating for the Brotherhood and ended up killing the fake emperor in Solitude... only to get caught and pay a fine lol. Then I went ahead and finished the dirty deed and killed the emperor. Then what happens? The guards pretty much tell me to my face they know I'm part of the Brotherhood and yet I'm still strolling around Solitude on the good side of the Imperials haha.
.
It just seems at times that some of the NPCs forget what you do really too soon and really are desperate for some coin.

The stormcloaks are behind the assassination plot of the emperor.... That's why THEY know

duhhhh

So here's a fun question; I'm sure everyone has seen the (insert any bug here) in-a-bottle. Is there a definitive list of where these all are? They make great decorations.
