Eh? What did you do? It shouldn't even be possible for the ENB to overwrite anything important. What problem did you have?

Aight I seem to have it working somewhat, struggling to delete that old ENB, but grabbed a new one and its working with the depth of field etc. Though indoors its incredibly dark. Looks LUSH.

Nice. To ditch an ENB preset (but not the core DLL) all you need to do is get rid of any files in your main Skyrim folder that start with ENB. The ENB DLL download has a whole bunch of useless shit in it. If you've got a preset off Nexus, literally the ONLY file you need from the ENB download is the D3D9.DLL. On rare occasions an ENB sneaks in a lighting mod, so when opening the archive, be alert for a 'Data' folder and take note of anything inside, because you'll want to delete those to on an install.

Yeah, I love mods/ENBs that make things wicked dark. You want to have other mods that work well with it, like:

Lanterns of Skyrim
Enhanced Lights and FX
Wearable Lanterns (if you CBF carrying torches).

Charger, did you get any screen flashing issues with your ENB? I've basically got this issue where the screen is flashing whenever mouse is moved, and occasionally the screen will tint blue. Problem disappears when I delete the ENB though, hrrmmm.

NM, sorted it with Video card vsync forced and an FPS limiter

No, never had that problem. Might just be a temporary bug in the latest version of ENB, which I haven't used.

Interesting, they're removing the level cap.

Probably doesn't matter much for the glorious PC gaming master race, but this could be a pretty cool reason to boot up the old dear again on consoles.

Like your face.

Not every PC player mods the living fuck out of the game, y'know?

In closing, suck my plums.

exactly. at the very least to kill those pesky intro movies that force you to watch the entire fucking thing every single time you load the game (looking at you, anything on the unreal engine)

So rather than playing my boys account and doing all his quests i decided to start my own game.
also waiting for the expansions to download.

but man, forgot how addictive it can be. I only played a few hours and moved up to level 5. wanted to keep playing but the boy had to drag me away

I havn't modded the game yet I hate those intro screens and action vids.

have you tried modorganizer? it works quite well for me, and particularly well with BOSS. if you run BOSS from the MO interface it will automatically sort your load order.

also i tried tropical skyrim from your earlier post. fucking awesome! although there were parrotts flying around clipping through trees and rocks, and i couldn't kill them for feathers or anything; the arrows just went straight through haha! cool mod though. it felt like a completely different world and nice to get away from the snow.

I'm kind of tempted to reinstall Oblivion and just walk around killing stuff. I'm assuming there would be a bunch of awesome mods for it now.

Chucking a few mods and an ENB on this game is what ruined the next generation of consoles for me.

I am too scared of modding this, grabbed the high resolution textures pack from Steam though.

Walked into the very first town in the game, killed a chicken and got slaughtered by 7 blokes at once.

Who knew they liked chickens so much?

I'll try a couple of graphical mods soon though I think - just need to do a little research.

lol rookie error with the chicken. I think everyone does that the first time they play it


if you're going to mod, get mod organizer. It's a lot better for managing & making them all work together than nexus mod manager. Can also run BOSS (sorts out the load order for you) and TES5Edit (cleans up "dirty" mod packages) directly from it to fix stuff.

Why the fuck do so many people want to murder chickens? There are plenty of beasties out there more deserving of punishment.

That screenshot is ridic.

Still waiting for them to finish Skyblivion, though hopefully that will get some needed attention now that Skywind is pretty much up and running.

Did have a play with the Creation Kit a while back, need to get around to playing with it some more and see what I can come up with.

I've seriously fucked my save up with some steam workshop mods. Nothing crazy either, just some weather, grass and water mods.

preallocates MOAR memory blocks to the game, so it doesn't crash when it decides to grab more (poorly). this is awesome - i could never work out why it wasn't using a lot of ram. Mods ahoy!
