[Official] The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Information and Discussion Thread - Page 337

post #3361 of 12888
Im finding it very hard to stick with the main quest. "Oh, look! There's a fort / cave / settlement, let's check that out..." biggrin.gif

Anyways, when I come across a fort or a cave of bandits and the like, after Ive killed everyone and cleaned the place out, it usually says on the map "CLEARED".

But there are a couple of places that Ive visited and done my thing that dont have the "CLEARED" label on the map. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
eg Fort Amol.

Did I leave a survivor? Am I missing something?

I'll try the performance setting later tonight, see if it helps any. I may even try lowering AA. I've got it at x4 and AF x2

Well, I followed that guide you linked to the finest detail, and it destroyed my game somehow. The emblem on the load screen was blood red, along with whatever it liked to generate for you while you were loading your game, then most of the world was missing...broken/torn. I followed the steps to undo it, and nothing. Replaced the .ini files with my backups pre-tampering, and still the same thing. Having to uninstall and reinstall and start over. Ugh, 56 hours lost.

Really upsets me (nothing you did! ranting at Bethesda) why make optimizing your game so damn hard? Why have to tweak .ini files to get the most out of your game? Create some damn settings to give people the options you gave in some stupid *** .ini file that has to be modified in notepad of all things.

I know Im ranting, (and i backed up my save games, but hell...who knows) so please dont flame me for it guys...just venting!

It seems like all through Oblivion I tried modding and whatnot to make the game even better, and never did that right. I go to just change 5 numbers in a damn game file and it's all shot to ****. I didnt make a mistake, I did -exactly- what the geforce.com website instructed. Unless, it's this 290 beta driver....

I finally finished the main quest today (70-something hours in... many side quests done) and I'm pretty underwhelmed by the ending.

Don't get me wrong, this is probably GOTY for me and the story was great... I just found the ending lackluster. It was kind of like "The story is finished? Oh, okay...".

I haven't finished the main story but I felt the same about the Imperial/Stormcloak conflict Warning: FUS! (Click to show)
. After completing it on the side of the Stormcloaks... well it ends with the taking of Solitude, a speech by Mr. Stormcloak... and that's it. This biggest difference to me was that cities that had imperials in charge now have stormcloak soldiers as guards... big whoop.

I actually ended up killing on the stormcloaks at Ulfric's speech after taking Solitude. Really didn't like the way it ended and felt I was on the wrong side. So took his swords, killed the troops in attendance there, dumped his sword, then went and resurrected the two Imperials we just killed and high tailed it out of Solitude. Too bad Ulfric just slumps when you try and kill him.

I don't know if it's because the game is playable after finishing the story that they didn't have a better way of ending it. At least it wasn't like FO3 where the ending was bland and the game just ends.

I am sure you did, but I will ask just in case; did you launch it using the 4GB launcher? The only reason I ask is because visuals failing to render properly is typically caused by corrupted drivers/textures or insufficient memory.

So I just figured out something that really pisses me off; Aela is a LIGHT ARMOR specialist. Why the HELL would Bethesda make her wear Ancient Nord Armor which is freaking HEAVY ARMOR. I call foul play you retarded QA staff! Every time I gave her HA she gladly wore it over superior LA. I was wondering why an archery specialist would wear HA. mad.gif

I still haven't chosen a side between the Imperials and Stormcloaks lol. But I think I will go Imperial.

Check my guide please. I am most certain that would have fixed your issues. You cannot enable a lot of those tweaks and not expect issues with its current 2GB cap. If you enabled UGrid, then you would have DEFINITELY had performance issues.

Reading through the last dozen pages of this thread, I hadnt realised that there was so much fluff around the background story. I should have realised there would be... this is the 5th game in the series, after all redface.gif

Ive been putting off joining a faction up until now, to many things and places to explore... I keep getting side tracked. I joined the Companions with a former character but the first few missions where like being a courier service or stand-over man...

Ive been leaning towards going with the Imperials, for no better reason than they look Romanesque and I have a soft spot for that era tongue.gif

Soooooo much to do in this game... Im loving it!
