Q: How do I use PerformanceKin with ENBseries? ( WARNINGthe effects won't be exactly like PerformanceKin Only use it at your own risk! )
A: By making ENB run PerformanceKin so You need to: 

  1. Rename d3d9.dll to sweetfx_d3d9.dll
  2. Install the ENB series files into the same directory
  3. Edit enbseries.ini so the top section looks like this:
  1. sweetfx_d3d9.dll

Highly Recommened Mods and very compatible with PerformanceKin:

Effects included:

  • SMAA Anti-aliasing : Anti-aliases the image using the SMAA technique - see
  • FXAA Anti-aliasing : Anti-aliases the image using the FXAA technique - currently only work under DirectX9. Use the d3d9.dll found in \SweetFX\dlls\FXAA DX9 dll\ for this.
  • Explosion : Scatters the pixels similarly to the Explosion filter in Irfanview
  • Cartoon : Creates an outline-effect that makes the image look more cartoonish.
  • Advanced CRT : Mimics the look of an old arcade CRT display.
  • LumaSharpen : Sharpens the image, making details easier to see
  • Bloom : Makes strong lights bleed their light into their surroundings
  • HDR : Mimics an HDR tonemapped look
  • Levels : Sets a new black and white point. A fast and easy way to increase contrast but it causes clipping. The Curves effect does this in a more subtle way without causing clipping.
  • Technicolor : Makes the image look like it was processed using a three-strip Technicolor process - see
  • Cineon DPX : Makes the image look like it was converted from film to Cineon DPX. Can be used to create a "sunny" look.
  • Monochrome : Removes colors from the image so it appears as if shot on black and white film.
  • Lift Gamma Gain : Adjust brightness and color of shadows, midtones and highlights (and typically does it better then the Tonemap effect)
  • Tonemap : Adjust gamma, exposure, saturation, bleach and defog. (may cause clipping)
  • Vibrance : Intelligently saturates (or desaturates if you use negative values) the pixels depending on their original saturation.
  • Curves : Contrast adjustments using S-curves - without causing clipping.
  • Sepia : Sepia tones the image - see
  • Vignette : Darkens the edges of the image to make it look more like it was shot with a camera lens. - see )
  • Dither : Applies dithering to simulate more colors than your monitor can display. This lessens banding artifacts - see )
  • Border : Makes the screenedge black as a workaround for the bright edge that forcing some AA modes sometimes causes.
  • Splitscreen : Enables the before-and-after splitscreen comparison mode.
  • Custom : A template to allow other to more easily program their own shader. Just edit /SweetFX/Shaders/custom.h (some programming knowledge required)

  • Be sure that you have Directx Lastest update!
  • Move everything to where is TESV.exe location (Not Data folder)!
