They told me, that a picture is worth a thousand words; Videos, hopefully, are worth more

Bunch of Videos by me in different areas/weathers, forgive the amateurish quality (and the semi-nude Aela :P)

The world is not all Bleak or all cheery; and neither is Skyrim. zENB is a realistic ENB config designed to bring you the best of all the multitude of weather types that Skyrim has to offer. As a disclamer, I do use some whacky values in this preset that would seem totally retarded to a experienced tweaker lol.

NOTE: As of now, I consider this config to be in BETA, purely due to the fact that as one person it is impossible for me to test all the weathers in all the places. As issues are reported by you, the user, I can gradually iron out all of them.

This config uses the latest ENB fx and dlls to implement the following:
  • Lighting and color revamp & rebalance
  • SSAO
  • DDoF
  • Imagespace Lighting
  • Temporal Anti Aliasing (TXAA)
  • ENB Edge AA
  • ENB Sharpening
  • SMAA (through Sweet FX)
  • Luma Sharpen (through Sweet FX)
  • Tone Mapping and contrast adjustments (through Sweet FX)

Additionally there are performance presets available if you have a weaker computer or treasure FPS like gold ;)


  • Download these 0.214 ENB FILES. Extract/Unzip the downloaded file. Copy all files inside the folder called "Wrapper" to your Skyrim directory (Where TESV.exe is located).
  • Download the file called z-ENB Data Files with NMM. Activate z-ENB Data files using NMM.
  • Download any one of the performance presets using manual mode (NOT NMM). Extract the downloaded file. Copy all the files inside the extracted folder to your Skyrim folder (Where TESV.exe is located), overwrite when prompted.
  • Play The Game!



  • If you have a machine with Optimus/AMD Dynamic Switchable Graphics; download: NVIDIA OPTIMUS D3D9 DLL FIX
  • Extract that file and copy the d3d9.dll it contains to your Skyrim folder.
  • Download these 0.214 ENB FILES. Extract/Unzip the downloaded file. Go to the "Wrapper" folder. RENAME the "d3d9.dll" it contains to "d3d9orig.dll"
  • Now Copy all files inside the "Wrapper" folder to your Skyrim directory (Where TESV.exe is located).
  • Download the file called z-ENB Data Files with NMM. Activate z-ENB Data files using NMM.
  • Download any one of the performance presets using manual mode (NOT NMM). Extract the downloaded file. Copy all the files inside the extracted folder to your Skyrim folder (Where TESV.exe is located), overwrite when prompted.
  • Play The Game!



This ENB has been designed with these mods & textures in mind; others will look fine but it will look best with these mods are Active.

Vanilla Trees + Lush Trees
Vanilla Snow Texture
Enhanced Night Skyrim (Blue Galaxy Version)
Enhanced Lights and FX, With the Exteriors but WITHOUT the enhancer.
Sun and clouds textures, Necessary for seamless mountain/sky transistions.
Vivid Landscapes - Rocking Stones and Mountains Parallax (Brownish Gray Version)
AOF Farmhouses
Pure Waters
Skyrim Flora Overhaul (Grass Only) / Summer Edition
Lanterns of Skyrim - All In One

Yes I actually wrote 'vanilla' :D


Real Clouds: Looks amazing, but Sunny days look a little unreleastic.
Supreme and Volumetric Fog: Again looks great, but only if you can stand white mountains in places.

According to your computers hardware.


These are the people who have directly and indirectly contributed immensely to the creation of this preset:
  • Boris Voronstov, who continues to labour on ENB, making it better every passing day.
  • Mindflux, for his snow and particle effects that make Skyrim a much more compelling place.
  • Matso, for the DoF code in enbprepass.fx
  • Jawz & HD6 for enbeffect.fx, along with plenty of explanation that is a constant guide.
  • AnOldFriend, for his Tree LODs and textures, the vanilla LOD was horrendus, thanks.
  • CptJoker71, for his Subtle Sunglare (Fallout 3), that I still continue to use.
  • Kyokushinoyama, for K Enb as a inspiration and for enbsunsprite.fx
  • Anaphiel, for Blackout - Simply Darker Dungeons
  • Gargorias, for Revamped Exterior Fog
  • Unreal Warfare for awesome raindrops in enbraindrops.tga
If I have used anyone's files without crediting you please let me know; I lose track of what belongs to whom sometimes! :P
