Uninstall guide:

Delete all files in the directory and data folder that came within this mod (the file you downloaded)


Do not download are install with Nexus mod manager! I left that option so people can see when I update, manual install only!
ENB is NOT compatible with 3rd party tools OSD, such as MSI afterburner, EVGA precision,etc...
That's why you get immediate CTDs. Disable these tools OSD by creating a TESV.exe profile for them and disabling OSD for this app.
Doing so, you can still run Afterburner for overclocking profiles, and run ENB at the same time.
ENB has got its own integrated FPS counter, as stated by Quad2core.

This mod achieves its visuals through, effects lighting and colour, no textures other than a sun glare and white water fix are present :)

Grass shadows are a problem introduced in the 1.5 skyrim patch. These are fixed in later versions of this mod, the classic version unfortunately will never be fixed due to the games engine.

Thank you for using Sharpshooter's extreme graphics ENB, if you have any questions or problems that haven't been answered here, feel free to ask them in the comments section of this mod :)!
