Kountervibe ENB ' Northern Light '

ALL

K ENB setups development for Skyrim 32 bits version has stopped.

I'm actually working on porting my setups to the Skyrim SE, because 64bits are better for everything.

The SE ENB binary development just began, so please people be patient. I'll be developping step by step.

Last thing, thank you all for your support, many thanx to the few who helped development with the few donations I got. And yes, supporting modders is important, since it gives us more time to deliver the mods you deserve.

Best to all of you
K

Purposes


Kountervibe ENB Northern Light is built for making the more of things " live " in the game, while retaining the vanilla essential aspects of it.
Colour range, lore-friendly feeling, Kountervibe ENB is the " wise " side of the K ENB Series.
It's built for * quality *, gaming AND screenarchery.
Boris Vorontsov gave us the tools, each of us tweakers uses them for its own purposes.
Performance is matter of the way the game, the mods, the inis, your rig are interacting.
ENB can't solve ALL performance issues, and it won't.
Eye candy comes at a price, and it's a natural rule.
Please do remember that any ENB preset will always remain a WIP.


Who am I and how will I support this preset ?
I'm a 45 years old french divorcee with 4 kids I'm raising alone.
I'm writing it to clearly explain why I can't promise that I'll support my preset here night and day.
Actually, I won't. You need to help yourself before asking anything here.
I'm a gamer above all things, then a tweaker, then an amateur screenarcher, then a noob coder.
But please do remember I'm a father and real life matters first.




What will I answer and what will I ignore ?
I'll answer all specific troubleshooting about the mod, assuming the facts you read this page and you dared visiting enbdev.com.
I'll totally ignore :
All that's already been covered in this page, a/o several times in the comments section.
Comments about the description page, myself, other ENB presets, other mods.
Strictly tastes-related comments, to each his own.
Tweaking advices, I'm no one to teach.
Weather modifiers of Lighting modifiers compatibility issues.
Basic trolling, since I'll simply enjoy it without wasting my time.




BASIC DISCLAIMER
Kountervibe ENB Northern Light is a demanding preset and it will remain this way.
::
Kountervibe ENB Northern Light is NOT MEANT to be used with Climates of Tamriel, Realistic Lighting Overhaul or 
ANY other weather, imagespace modifier.
It's * technically * compatible, but it'll look weird if used with these.

BASIC INSTALLATION PROCESS
Don't use Mods managers to install Kountervibe ENB Northern Light, it can't work since NMM installs files in Skyrim's Data folder, not in main folder.
Copy the folder's contents to their correct destinations :
All files should go to your Skyrim Main folder, where the TESV.exe is located

Disable any Game-based or Driver-based antialiasing method, any Anisotropic Filter from game AND from drivers

ADD THESE LINES TO SkyrimPrefs.ini, [Display] section :
bFloatPointRenderTarget=1
bTreesReceiveShadows=1
bDrawLandShadows=1
bShadowsOnGrass=1

SET YOUR RESOLUTION IN THE FILES :
enbeffectprepass.fx
enbsunsprite.fx

In both, where you'll spot :
#define fWidth 1920.0
#define fHeight 1080.0

Just replace the scales with yours. f.e. , for 1920x1200 :
#define fWidth 1920.0
#define fHeight 1200.0

Save the file. Done.

This step is important, since some effects are indexed upon texels.

Please DO calibrate your monitor
Try to avoid any light source too close to your display

Kountervibe ENB Northern Light has been designed using the wrapper version

Back up the following:
The current SweetFX files you're using. Replace them all : my SweetFX shaders are modified
The current ENB you're using if currently using one
Your game inis, located in MyDocuments/MyGames/SKyrim
Your game saves
Back up your sun textures, located in Skyrim/Data/textures/sky
When using the mods I'm highly advicing, back up your sky textures as well
