Well according to the features I need it looks like it will run it. It did say a directX 9.0c card will run it and have 512mb ram and I have more ram than that. I have 1.76 GB of ram on my video. I also have upto shader model 4.0 and it says it only needs 3.0. I should be able to run it on lowest settings and res to play according to specs. My IGP performs like an entry level card so it should play.

I seem to recall them saying we'd get it sometime in January which has still been a long wait since release. February today!

Hopefully we see some top quality mods like we did in oblivion.

New Creation Kit looks great with that Steam Workshop feature!

Nice that they have kept the same look and feel as the previous CK's, I could even fiddle around in it since I worked with it a bit in the Morrowind days biggrin.gif

Been wanting to put a house in an obscure place... this might be the trick.

I didn't change anything in settings, and I'm running no mods (aside from I was running the SKSE for the TESVAL fps boost before, not now).

The only non-vanilla aspect of my game is that shortly after it came out, I made some SkyrimPrefs.ini file changes to make stuff look better. That file is read-only, and it didn't have it's contents changed when I updated to the beta version. Skyrim.ini is new ... there's not much to that file and I've never changed it before, so it's replacement shouldn't be the cause.

Anyone else (who's comparing what should be apples-to-apples scenarios) feel like the beta just doesn't look as good?


I'm using the second R290 beta drivers, the 290.53. I had done all of the graphics drivers tweaks and skyrim.ini and skyrimpreferences.ini tweaks that have been floating around at this link: http://www.geforce.com/Optimize/Guides/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-tweak-guide and I also performed the High Quality override of the Ambient Occlusion in this tweak http://www.geforce.com/Active/en_US/shared/images/articles/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-five-fast-tweaks/Skyrim-NVI-AO-New.png using Nvidia Inspector.

 

To me, the game looks every bit as good as it did before, but I also did a clean driver install and then re-tweaked all of the settings when I updated to the 2nd 290 beta driver.

 

I tried installing the latest beta driver (the first R295) that came out under 24 hours ago but the 295.51, but it was causing some strange issues with Folding@Home, causing it to finish the WU to 100% and then go into a deathloop of downloading the gpu core 15 over and over. I think the update to the PhysX version may have changed a .dll or two that are used in CUDA and hosed with FAH.

 

So I'm staying with the 290.53 drivers and to me they look better than the game ever looked before. (But the problem is, that I performed all of those tweaks at the same time that I installed them, so I can't give you a vanilla skyrim configuration comparison...)

win him? you mean you drank him under the table? if so and you don't black out then it looks like console time. setstage DA14 5 should work or try resetquest DA14. actually i wonder if it is stuck at the end of the start quest, try setstage DA14START 70 that should end the beginning quest
spoiler edited. again.

Hello, about the drinking quest again.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Hi mate, i went up to the guy and started the drinking contest. I then tried all the commands you told me, all 2 of them. the reset command was not recognised. setstage da14start 70 did nothing and setstageda14 5 said objective complete by winning the contest, but i did not black out.
