Have you set this variable to, say, 3 frames?
Code:
RenderAheadLimit: 3
Limit how many frames ahead are rendered to reduce input lag.(default is 0)

im a loner, hate followers. i find they always get in the way. im a big fan of fire destruction spells in between sword swinging, and 9/10 i hit my own follower and make them an enemy.

Fargas is pretty cool though, good in a fight.

so is anyone here a vampire/werewolf? which do you prefer and why? me, im a werewolf and i LOVE it smile.gif will never cure myself. was a vampire in Oblivion and it was fun, just not as cool imo. theres something simply awesome about getting mad in a dungeon explore and using beast form to slaughter a group of enemies, and then feed on them. killing vampire enemies is almost poetic too haha.

Have you d/led the 1.4 patch?


Oh, sorry....too many rigs here to display in my sig properly redface.gif

 

I'm using a i5-655K and a GTX 460 in Win7.  I've gone through about 5 different drivers with the 460 and I get the same crash with all of them.  I have a 2600k here and a pile of GPU's, so I'm going to try them out tonight and see if they work.  

 

As for patch 1.4, no I haven't downloaded it, but I just bought and downloaded Skyrim the other day, so would the patch have been included in it?

I just know that Bethesda's games have had problems with high audio settings in the past. I couldn't play Oblivion if it wasn't set to the lowest setting.


Yup, I've tried the sound on several of the lowest settings and I still crash to desktop.

My first character was such a packrat that I was encumbered almost constantly, even with 250 stamina. I got so used to being encumbered all of the time that I essentially traveled by power attacking with a greatsword while walking forward and using wind-sprint (short cooldown mode) whenever my stamina wore out. Combining that with master level difficulty made combat with mages very challenging, to say the least. I think my record encumbrance was 2,500+ lbs. By all rights, my character should have been crushed. (This was with the weightless armor perk.)

When I made a second character, a mage, I vowed to only pick up high-value magical items, magical items I could disenchant, or useful potions, lockpicks, and gold. I've never been encumbered, even when looting 2 dragon kills worth of scales and bones.

Is there a reason you didn't buy a house(s) to store the stuff?

 

I don't like the idea of fast-travel from horseback while encumbered, nor do I like the idea of fast-travel while walking unencumbered. I only use fast-travel when renting a carriage from one hold to another.

My first playthrough, I got sidetracked by so many side-quests that I was in the high 40s before I finished the Civil War quest line and I hadn't gone past the learning of Wind Sprint in the main quest line. (Yes, that's how side-tracked I was.) Because of my tendency to collect quests, I had so many quests that I couldn't get all of them active on the map at once, so I would concentrate on a region of the map and clear every dungeon and complete every quest in that region before I moved on.

 

Since I couldn't fast-travel on foot, hated the idea of fast-travel on horseback, and refused to exploit "pick this up for me" to infinitely over-encumber Lydia, I spent a great deal of time power-attack walking and wind-sprinting. I owned a home in Whiterun (and later in Windhelm as well), and I think Lydia spent most of her time at maximum encumbrance. Once I had cleared a region out, I would walk back to whichever home was closest and then dump my loot off, empty Lydia of loot, and then head out to the next portion of the map and do the dozen or so dungeons and quests and repeat the process. I spent the vast majority of my game encumbered, even with 250 stamina.

 

I was around level 45 or so when I had enough skill points and gold to unlock the good enchanting. (I had the good smithing already.) So it was then that I outfitted myself in full legendary Daedric with twin-enchantments on every piece. I broke the game, in that even on master level, everything was too easy for me, and decided to finish the main two quest lines. (Civil War and Dragonborn). Needless to say, once my character was in full (and overpowered) armor and weaponry, I had no reason to collect loot anymore and finished the game very quickly without encumbrance.

 

My next play-through is as a mage. I've been at master difficulty from the very start, and I'm only keeping magical items to disenchant, valuable magical items, gold, gems, important potions, soul gems, and alchemy ingredients. I'm almost never encumbered and I'm enjoying this time through quite a bit more than with my greatsword heavy armor user that was my first character. The problem is, I'm to the point where it's getting to be too easy again, and I'm only 35 or so.

 

I wish that there were a couple of categories higher than master.

Thanks!  I'll try this out when I get home from class today.  I'm assuming it's a save point just beyond the point where I keep crashing?

I'm thinking it is just after smile.gif
And if that fails. You could try another one of my saves that's a bit later. But still at the beginning smile.gif
But then it would mean you'd have to use my toon though!
Which would be OK, if you wanted a woman nord toon! Called Lara biggrin.gif

So yeah, see if that works. And if not we can try again thumb.gif

If you get close and personal, you will want a ranged or caster follower. If you are ranged or a caster, you want a melee and tank follower. Once your caster starts using AOE spells however, you only want a ranged follower like Aela or Jenassa.

It can howl as well, but that is about it. Wolves are not worth it once you get high level armor and weapons.
