DESCRIPTION:

This mod is my personal ENB adjusted to look the most beautiful and to keep high fps at the same time. My main thought was to create beautiful ENB without losing too much FPS in game, therefore it has low impact on FPS (confirmed by many people in comments). Great for people with weak and for those with powerful PC's.

I hope you're gonna like it. If so, please ENDORSE. I would really appreciate that ;)

If you have some screenshots with my ENB, upload them here. I'm always happy to see some new shots of yours :)


INSTALLATION:

PERFORMANCE VERSION

- Download archive with 'd3d9.dll' file from ENBSeries website
- Find in that archive 'd3d9.dll' file and copy only this one file into Skyrim main folder (not data folder)
- Now copy all of the files from my archive to the same place
- Go to my documents/my games/skyrim/skyrimprefs.ini and change values listed below to:
bFloatPointRenderTarget=1

fGamma=1.2000
(recommended brightness in game)

iPresentInterval=0
(disables vsync, for best performance)

(OPTIONAL)
If you don't like my Depth of field you can disable it (check FAQ section) or you can download and install DYNAVISION (disable my DoF first). In MCM configurator use static Depth of Field effect with 0.8 value (my recommendation). It will nicely smooth objects edges.

INFO:
- There is also version crafted to work with Tropical Skyrim
- Files included in 'meshes' folder fix overcolored deathbell issue.


QUALITY VERSION

- Copy all of the files from 'Core' folder into Skyrim main folder
- Go to 'ENBoost' folder and copy 'enblocal.ini' file from folder with your videocard and your vRAM. Paste this file into Skyrim directory (same as before) and overwrite
- Go to my documents/my games/skyrim/skyrimprefs.ini and change values listed below to:
bFloatPointRenderTarget=1
fGamma=1.2000 (recommended brightness in game)
iPresentInterval=0 (disables vsync, for best performance)
bTreesReceiveShadows=1
bDrawLandShadows=1
bShadowsOnGrass=1

iMaxAnisotropy=0
bTransparencyMultisampling=1


INFO:
- I uploaded 'd3d9.dll' file in my archive because it is v0.198 which cannot be found on ENBSeries website anymore. Using my mod with newer versions can cause bigger FPS loss, so use it on your own risk.
- Files included in 'meshes' folder fix overcolored deathbell issue.

- This QUALITY version was created to work together with mods listed below, so I highly recommended to use it with them, otherwise it may not look as intended:
Climates Of Tamriel
ClimatesOfTamriel.esm (just this one, no other patches and .esp files from CoT)
Realistic Lighting Overhaul
Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Dawnguard Interiors.esp
Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Dungeons.esp
Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Major City Exteriors.esp
Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Major City Interiors.esp
Realistic Lighting Overhaul - Minor Cities and Town Interiors.esp
RLO - Adaptive Interiors Vanilla Weathers Patch.esp
ReAL Sun - insane0h Realistic Sunglare
- In case if that version won't work for you, download older one, which should be more compatible for most users.


FAQ:

Q: How can I check FPS in game?
A: Press NUM * in game, indicator will appear in upper left corner of your screen.

Q: I can't see a thing underwater, why?
A: It means that you use my mod with ENBSeries version other than I recommended in installation guide.

Q: How can I adjust colors/brightness/shadows/DOF or any other ENB settings on my own?
A: For PERFORMANCE version - simply download ENB Customizer. This tool is very easy to use and will help you adjust ENB settings like you wish so.
Changing darkness at night - change AmbientLightingIntensityNight= value in "enbseries.ini",
Disabling Depth of Field - change from true to false in line EnableDepthOfField=false in "enbseries.ini".

For QUALITY version press SHIFT+ENTER to open GUI menu in game. Press apply after making changes.
Changing darkness at night - change AmbientLightingIntensityNight=  for exteriors and AmbientLightingIntensityInteriorNight= for interiors,

Q: I have blinding white smokes on loading screens. How to fix it?
A: Download THIS mod made by Lozzer, it will replace white smokes with snowing animation or THIS one, which will simply remove smokes from loading screens.

Q: How to fix glowing/blinding objects issue in game?
A: Download THIS patch.

Q: Can I download this mod using Manager?
A: No, you cannot. Download it manually. Manager would install this mod in different place than it should be and it won't work properly.

Q: I can't use Khajit Night Eye and Vampire's Eye.
A: Unfortunatelly these abilities are not fully working with ENBSeries (Boris Vorontsov mentioned that on his website). There is a way to fix it, but it will change colors of my mod. Anyway I will give you instruction how to do this on your own, it's very easy: Just open "enbeffect.fx" file and remove "//" from in front of "// #define APPLYGAMECOLORCORRECTION" (you will find it on the top of the file). That's it, Night's Eye will be working now :) The other solution is to turn ENB off during the gameplay just before you want to use Khajit Night Eye or Vampire's Eye by pressing SHIFT+F12, now activate your ability. After use simply restore ENB (SHIFT+F12).

Q: Why can I see the sun through buildings and mountains?
A: Most likely you have to update your video card drivers and it should fix it.

Q: My game crashes sometimes.
A: Download
Safety Load and SSME - Skyrim Startup Memory Editor. They will prevent game to crash. 80-100% less CTDs.
