  1. ----------SHORT GUIDE to the NEWCOMERS --------------
  2. I made it to save your time, if you have any questions please reply below it will be nice to discuss with some similar freaks!
  3. (trust me im fanatic over 30 years old gamer
  4. (please read, it takes me whole 2 days of trying and i achieve fully stable max settings game with ugrids 7on very medium rig! - first time from 2011.11.11 Skyrim operates without crashing with this uGrids and ENB etc.):
  5.  
  6. Be sure to turn off Climates of Tamriel and Real Lightning Overhaul - or other ligthing mods like author mentioned.
  7.  
  8. My Rig - intel QuadCore Q9550-2,83Mhz, 8Gb Ram, Geforce 560 GTX 1gb VRam - playing at 1920x1200, 60Hz
  9.  
  10. (If you have exactly like mine , for fast try you can just paste my enblocal.ini, skyrim.ini and skyrimprefs.ini into your correct folders after setup of this ENB) - be sure to make backups of your own files!
  11.  
  12. Im using Official Hd textures mod, this ENB, Skyrim FLora Overhaul, Real Clouds,Dat Grass, and about 120 other mods (full list at the end).
  13.  
  14. With all maxed out (i mean really maxed out ) - in worst moments my fps shows 19-20.4fps - which is enuogh to play in comfort, becouse human eye feels best at 30-40 fps [over that value some people can feel bad after long time] , and slight drops form time to time to 20fps level is nothing scary as it lets you play smooth.
  15.  
  16.  
  17.  
  18.  
  19.  
  20. Im running this completly stable for 48 hours with very high settings and Ugrids to load at 7
  21.  
  22. How i manage to do that ?
  23. 0. Stick to the Description of this ENB to proper install this ENB
  24.  
  25. 1. MOST IMPORTANT use CTD and Memory patch ENBoost (read below for details)! http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/38649/
  26.  
  27. 2.!!!!!IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!! Copy file named ENB Host (only that file) from original ENB 0.200 files (Wrapper folder) and paste into Skyrim directory, its not included in this ENB but its CRUCIAL to use it to avoid memory leaks crashes at ugrids to load 7 + ENB + texture mods etc. !!!!!!!IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!
  28. Without this file you will get red warning in main menu after game is loaded, but what is worst you will not take any adavantage of ENB Boost mod and ENB 0.200 NEW FEAUTURE this ENb version.
  29.  
  30. Like Boris wrote: "first version of memory reducing code for 64-bit systems which allow to
  31. use more than 4 Gb memory via enbhost.exe helper process. Recommended for users
  32. with 8 Gb or greater amount of RAM. Feature active when ReduceSystemMemoryUsage=true
  33. and EnableUnsafeMemoryHacks=false"
  34.  
  35. So, after copy that enb host file , be sure to have line: ReduceSystemMemoryUsage=true set correctly! (its already good in mine enblocal.ini given below)
  36.  
  37.  
  38.  
  39. 3. DISABLE all Antialias settings and Vertical Synchronisation in Nvidia Control Panel (best create profile specially for Skyrim)
  40.  
  41. 4. BE FREE and SAFE to use my enblocal.ini configuration from below, as good as my skyrim.ini and skyrimprefs.ini configurations if you have computer similar to mine. As i said i spend 48 hours of intense playing and file settings and experiments to make it completly stable.
  42.  
  43. 5. USE SHIFT + Page Down , while ingame (for comfort use "Q" key first to stop action) to freely modifiy this great ENB detail settings ingame.
  44. (Most fps eater is Ambient Occlusion
  45.  
  46.  
  47. Well first of all i slightly modified enblocal.ini file that comes from opethfeldt with these settings from above mentioned mod ->
  48. it looks like this:
  49.  
  50. DONT WORRY - its fully working with this ENB - its only fully adapted to work correctly with high uGridstoLoad and latest Boris Vorontsov
  51.  
  52. - CTD and Memory patch ENBoost , also it will clear red waring message in main menu too - with keeping all this ENB feautres.

  122. (you can copy paste above settings into enblocal.ini in Skyrim directory) - its modified to take full advantage of Boris antiCTD and Memory mod and this ENB recomennded settings)
  123.  
  124. Important to the newcomers with medium computers:
  125.  
  126. Even if this ENB is still beta its worth a try as its ONLY ONE ENB with such great effects, and spend some time to configure that (especially use SHIFT+PAGE DOWN in game to see FPS rate and difference in random shader and other settings live! I never done that before with any Enb but it gives a much faster insight).
  127.  
  128. Im using it together with wonderfull (and this month mod of the month from Boris Vorontsov [yes, creator of ENB] )
  129. CTD and Memory patch ENBoost, Link: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/38649/ (its, real easy you must only change enblocal.ini file in Skyrim directory).
