post #9241 of 12885
I just started revisiting this game after a long break. I have over 80 mods installed and think that the game is 200% better than the original.

Most of these mods are graphical those some included are things such as MoonPath to Elsweyr.

I have sunk more time in the last few days into this game than i did previously.. and am glad that i waited for such mods to be developed.

I was also excited to come here and see this at the top of the list in PC gaming section thumb.gif

I'm getting lag in my game and I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for fixing it. I thought my 2GB 6950 could handle everything I throw at it, but it stutters. At first, I was running HD DLC + Texture Pack Combiner (Reduced Version) 1.91 + a couple random texture mods like skins/beards/brows. Using this arrangement I get some massive lag:

It looked like my VRAM was getting maxed out so I unchecked the HD texture DLC:

This time it looks my VRAM is getting almost, but not quite maxed out, but I'm still getting stuttering.

Finally, I turned down texture quality to medium:

This time my VRAM is nowhere near maxed out, but I still get some jitter. How can I fix this? Also, does anyone else with a 2GB card run Texture Pack Combiner successfully?

Try putting a fps cap of 30 and see if it makes game play smoother. If that doesn't work you may want to try monitoring CPU in game with HWInfo.

Edit: Turn off vsync if you have it on as well.

What you are experiencing is called microstutter (or frame latency issue). It is a common issue with AMD hardware.
It happens with my HD 7950 sometimes, & with certain ENB modes it happens more frequently.
Drivers 13.2 Beta 3 fixed the issue partially with HD7000 series, try that out...
Nvidia drivers aren't perfect either for Skyrim. with my GTX 470/ 670 when the fps go below 35 fps the feel sooooo slow but it doesn't stutter like that.

If you use ENB, put the FPS cap to about 40 (also make sure the cap is enabled, all in the enbseries.ini)

I have mine set to:
EnableFPSLimit=true
FPSLimit=50


also, install catalyst drivers 13.2 Beta - it gets rid of alot of frame latencies, a problem thats plagued bethesda games since forever. I run the same card as you, so no reason why this shouldn't work and i'd also wager i run far more graphical mods than you.

Hello everyone,

I hope that you are all enjoying Dragonborn!

I was browsing the Bethesda forums, and came across someone linking to this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fw3g_N1jcZQ

I have many mods installed for Skyrim, 106 to be exact, but have only ever had about 3 crashes to desktop in the year that I have been playing it.
I've also not had any issues so far with Dragonborn, although I obviously haven't had much time to play it yet thumb.gif

How necessary is it to 'Clean' the master files?


Thanks.

Hey guys.

Im looking for a mod to install for Skyrim that replaces all the textures to make them nicer looking.

Ive been looking at the Skyrim Nexus website and I keep finding mods that are only for 1 town or just trees, or only glass...
Is there a texture pack to replace all the low res textures with 1024x1024 versions? or 2048x2048?

Right now im running the script extender and Dynavision and Skyui. But that's it... Do I have to download 20 different texture mods to change everything or is there one BIG mod to change it all at once?

Thanks
Happy time PC.

First thing you want to do is download the official HD texture pack from Steam (it's free)

After that, head this way and download and install these packs:


Static Mesh Improvement Mod - SMIM


Skyrim HD

They all compliment eachother nicely. You will find that their textures will overlap (As in, during installation some files from one may be replaced with another) This won't be any issue and wont cause any noticeable problems or dodgy looking textures in game.
