--- The Elder Scrolls General Loadscreen Replacer ---

This mod replaces the loading screens in Skyrim with 205 screenshots that have been processed to resemble paintings. The screenshots in the mod were all submitted and voted on by the /tesg/ community.

The mod comes in two main flavours - fullscreen and small. The fullscreen versions will fill 16:9 monitors completely and 16:10 monitors with some thin letterboxing. Other aspect ratios may see greater letterboxing or have the image cropped by the edge of the screen. In these cases we have provided the small version, a shrunk image slightly to the left of the screen that can be zoomed and rotated with the mouse, much like the loadscreens in the vanilla game. All versions have original flavour text written pertaining to Elder Scrolls lore, Skyrim, gameplay or the image itself.

By popular request, additional versions removing some of the sillier shots have also been provided in the folders entitled "No Fun". By additional popular request, versions of the mod without any new flavour text are available in the textless pack. There's also a wallapaper pack containing all the screenshots from the mod as .jpg images.

--- Issues ---
- You'll still be able to zoom the fullscreen versions in and out using the mouse. Engine limitations. Can't do diddley about it.
- After about ten to fifteen seconds flavour text from the vanilla game will appear on the textless versions of the mod. Again, Todd's fault.
- Smoke on the loadscreen can be distracting. Its unaffected by this mod. Use this if you want to get rid of it.
- If you have ENB enabled on loading screens it can misrepresent the colours of the images, flood them with bloom or otherwise make them look horrible. Append your enblocal.ini so that IgnoreLoadingScreen=true under the [FIX] category.
- Spelling and punctuation issues? I dunno, I checked it five or so times. Send a message if you see something out of place.
