  • Here's my humble suggestion:
  • Delete Skyrim from steam, via steam (delete any left over folders manually)
  • Delete or back up-then-delete anything related in that "my games" folder (or wherever those INIs/save games are)
  • create a new windows user
  • log out of your current user, log on as new user (this should create a fresh profile)
  • download skyrim fresh from steam...and try it out a new game...
  • might also try setting all the graphical settings to lowest possible and leave INIs defaulted


could also try installing windows on entirely different HDD. Would hat to think spyware or some bug could hide in boot sector.

Where is the RenderAheadLimit setting located?

The mod comes with two files, one of which is "antilag.cfg". It's usually located in your normal installation Skyrim folder.

Open up "antilag.cfg" with your text editor (Notepad will do). You will see that RenderAheadLimit variable is currently set to 0 (0 means 'disable'). You can try different values and see if it makes any difference.

Dont overthink it, do what you want, there is no penalty for wearing heavy armor and being magic based.

Could this be because Steam was not restarted? Or maybe because v-sync is locked on in the NCP? Or does FXAA conflict with HD textures?

I'm hoping it was just because Steam needed to be restarted and that I'm not going to have to have problems with this game with HD textures. :/


Are you using any texture mods that you installed before the Steam HD Pack?

FXAA doesn't conflict with my installation, nor with that of most of the users that are regular on this Thread.

If v-sync was Forced On in NV Panel, you shouldn't get any tearing. Try turning on Triple Buffering too?

New to the CK. I'm trying to adjust damage/enchantment values to some weapons and I've been successful with default weapons so far. Is it possible to adjust values on other peoples mods downloaded from nexus? I'd like to adjust the values on the dragonbone weapons available on nexus. I go through the same steps I used on the default weapons but when I load up the plugin I created, the weapon I modded doesn't show up. Any suggestions, or is it not possible to adjust other people mods? This is all for personal use by the way, so hopefully I am not in the wrong by messing with other peoples mods.

hmm Funny. I unlocked the shaders on the 6950 a while ago. I got a massive amount of stuttering while playing. Being in Honeyside with all furnitures and stuff was like being in a slide show. I just flipped the switch back to stock 6950 and it's smooth as butter. It was using ALL of the GPU memory when I used 6970 settings..mad.gif Bad flash, I'd think. Won't see anything below 40fps now. Well maybe 35 when entering a city.. Everything on ultra with a few mods. thumb.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


That save worked perfectly, right up until I put my head on the chopping block, then it crashed to desktop again.  I've got a pile of hardware here (CPU's, Mobo's, GPU's), and a bunch of OS's, so I'm going to run through all of them until I 'm able to find a combination that works.  I'm thinking my problem might be OS related because I am using a stripped version (but all of my other games and 3D benchmarks work on it).

 

Thanks a lot for all the help smile.gif

From this article: http://www.geforce.com/Optimize/Guides/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-tweak-guide

 

[Interface]
fSafeZoneX=15
fSafeZoneY=15
fSafeZoneXWide=15
fSafeZoneYWide=15

 

The [Interface] section and variables above must all be added to the bottom of the Skyrim.ini file. These variables control the distance from the edge of the screen at which HUD elements, like the compass and health, magicka and stamina bars, appear. The lower the value assigned, the closer to the edge of the screen the HUD elements, as well as any status messages or location text, will appear. This can make them less intrusive.

 

That will help the placement of the HUD elements. I use that and like that.

 

I have not altered the sizes, as I play on a single monitor, but here's some info from http://widescreengamingforum.com/dr/elder-scrolls-v-skyrim/en that might help:

I have no mods on my copy aside from the Steam downloaded HD pack. I went back and tried Skyrim again last night and it ran for an hour without issue. I'm assuming it may have been related to my haste in getting Skyrim running without restarting Steam.

It looks a bit better but nothing spectacular. Baby steps Bethesda, baby steps. thumb.gif
