Anyone know how to add SSAO to RCRN v36 HDR?

Finally found a mod that looks really good but doesnt effect my performance even after about 90 mods installed. Only thing is I miss my SSAO. I didn't remove my ENB, but it doesn't seem to recognize it.

Anyone know a way to add SSAO to it?

Since you have an Nvidia card, you could always just force SSAO through Nvidia Inspector. Quality setting is what I recommend. It won't be as pronounced as ENB's SSAO, but it has about 1/2 of the performance cost. Up to you really.

If you were just going to use ENB's SSAO and nothing else, that would require a config rigged up to do just that. Using an ENB config from the Nexus will most likely tamper the RCRN look.

Thanks very much.

Now I've run into a bigger problem, and it's so frustrating I'm throwing in the towel until someone can help me fix it because I honestly don't know what else to do.

The issue is Jagged Blocky Shadows. I've tried every single recommended setting on the internet, and literally it doesn't change a thing. I don't know what else to do. If maybe I installed something and forgot to remove it or what but this is so annoying and it completely takes away from the game with how disgusting it looks.

I was playing with this Mod called "The Wilds" and for the most part I thoroughly enjoyed the visuals from it. However one downfall it had was these blocky shadows, no matter what settings I did (even what it recommended in the readme) nothing changed. So I decided to give up and install RCRN v36 instead.

Low an behold a few mins into installing the mod and closer inspection came to show that this mod also had disturbingly blocky and jagged shadows. What bothers me the most, is when I go take a screenshot of it, so I can post it here and show you. It doesn't look nearly as bad in the screenshots as it does in game. It blows my mind how bad the shadows look. Every screen shot I've take though smooths out the shadows and makes them look fine which is even more frustrating. Only thing I can think of is making a movie in FRAPS, because god it's bad.

Is there any fix for this? I've searched everywhere and cannot find anything that works. I spent about 3 hours trying to fix it with various settings with no success. The different settings dont even alter it any differently, tried hundreds of different combinations and it still looks the same.

I really want to enjoy this game, and I am getting into it. However these shadows are taking me right out of the game.

Thanks.

The only way I know to fix the blocky skyrim shadows is to use an rather recent version of ENB. ENB uses it's own shadow rendering, and has an option for detailed shadows so far beyond what vanilla skyrim can render.

Here's a pretty cool screen I took the other day featuring ENB's great shadows smile.gif



Few more





And to demonstrate how ENB replaces skyrim's shadow rendering, here are 2 screens of the same place.

Not sure what I am doing wrong. I have ENB installed but it just looks washed out and crappy. Also, when I try to install the green grass and dense grass all I get is bright green flat looking grass, and its still washed out.

Which ENB did you try? Sure you're using the right binary with it?

You.... could put that in a spoiler tag ya know.

I have the following shadow settings in mine:
Code:
iShadowMapResolution=4096
iShadowMapResolutionInt=8192
iIntShadowMapResolution=8192
iActorSelfShadowResolution=8192
bEquippedTorchesCastShadows=1
fShadowBiasScale=0.2500
iShadowMaskQuarter=4
iBlurDeferredShadowMask=6
fShadowDistance=8000.0000

It doesn't help much in vanilla skyrim.
