About this mod

Make Skyrim always take most of CPU usage
Increase FPS and Prevent suddenly lag caused by other processes

Permissions and credits
Skyrim Priority LE
Tired of setting priority manually every time after game startup?
This lightweight mod sets your game priority to High automatically.
It ensured the game always takes most of the CPU usage and prevents sudden lag caused by other processes.
Now Skyrim can do the same.

Kick other processes out. Skyrim is the only one that should have the whole CPU.
Be a wonder chicken Rude and Unreasonable.

SKSE DLL Only. No esp or papyrus script

SkyrimSE Version: Skyrim Priority SE
Fallout 4 Version: Fallout Priority

  1.  Install by Mod Manager or Extract manually.
  2.  It's so simple that even don't have step 2

Q: How does this mod work?
Skyrim Priority simply calls the WinApi SetPriorityClass in SKSE Plugin EntryPoint.

Q: Work on the previous version of SKSE?
There's no SKSE Version Checking in plugin.
And the implementation of this mod is not dependent on version even skse.
So it should work on all SKSE version.

Q: Work on Enderal?
Enderal is essentially a Skyrim Mod and require SKSE.
I can sure Skyrim Priority does work on Enderal.

Q: Skyrim VR Support?
Visit Skyrim Priority SE

Q: Address Library?
It's only for version independent address searching. But Skyrim Priority doesn't do that.
So this mod don't need it.
(There's no address library for Oldrim anyway)

Q: Compatibility?
Compatible with everything.

Q: So how do I know if this mod working?
After game startup. You can open Task Manager by press "Ctrl+Shift+Esc". Go to Details Tab.
Right click on SkyrimSE.exe and check is the value of "Set priority" is High.

If you turned DynamicPriority on. It will be BelowNormal because you are not focus on Game Window.
After you return to Game it will back to High.

It's Normal by default without Mod or softwares like Process Lasso.

Check the Microsoft Official Document for the details:

# Idle          = 0
# Below Normal  = 1
# Normal        = 2
# Above Normal  = 3
# High          = 4
# Realtime      = 5     (Require run SKSE as Administrator)

Skyrim Priority uses High by default
It's a safe priority that won't interrupt critical jobs by Windows or etc.
You can change it in PriorityMod.toml If you want other priority.

About Realtime Priority
You should almost never use Realtime, because this interrupts system threads that manage mouse input, keyboard input, and background disk flushing. This class can be appropriate for applications that "talk" directly to hardware or that perform brief tasks that should have limited interruptions.
