Light and fluffy like its name, Marshmallow was born from my desire to create an ENB config for Skyrim that addresses most of the key issues with its default post-processing while also coming with a negligible performance impact. Using the stripped-down v0.108 binary, I have managed to do so to the best of my abilities, netting a loss of no more than 2-3 frames on average.

What do you get with Marshmallow? Well, here's a few highlights:

  • Rebalanced brightness and contrast.
  • Warmer color tones.
  • A moderate saturation boost.
  • Filmic tone mapping based on the Naughty Dog implementation.
  • A restrained amount of higher quality bloom.
  • Subtle vignetting.
  • Complete removal of eye adaptation.
  • Functioning Night Eye without any reliance on vanilla post-processing.
  • Highly documented files for end user tweaking.


1. Copy the appropriate d3d9.dll from the ENBSeries v0.108 TrueHDR download to your Skyrim directory, typically from the 'wrapper' folder.
2. Also copy the contents of the Marshmallow ENB archive into the Skyrim directory.
3. Insure that these values in your skyrimpref.ini are set as such:

  • iMaxAnisotropy=0
  • fGamma=1.0000
  • bTreesReceiveShadows=1
  • bFloatPointRenderTarget=1

4. Play!

Compatibility and Recommended Mods:

The mods listed below, though by no means necessary, are recommended for improved results.

Borderless Window
Dramatic Clouds
Enhanced Lighting for ENB - interior image spaces and sky mesh only!
Enhanced Lights and FX or Relighting Skyrim (former preferred)
Ultimate HD Fire Effects
Wearable Lanterns

I do not support Climates of Tamriel; it's nearly impossible to calibrate for without the weather system added in later binaries. If you absolutely cannot live without it, Climates of Tamriel - Weather Patch will help neutralize the differences between the individual weathers as best as possible for usage with ENB.

Final Notes:

Thank you for taking the time to try out my config! Also a thank you to JawZ for his help and support on this config.

Do keep in mind that I'm hardly an expert at this so it's entirely possible that a number of things can continued to be improved. On that note, feedback is highly encouraged.
