Insanity ENB is my personal adaptation from the legendary DAHAKA's ENB, so first of all I would like to say  BIG THANKS to Dahaka Mod for giving me  permission to use his great preset as base. All the main credits for the original work go to him. This is a Fantasy, exotic and impressive preset , with multiple weathers support, strong colors and contrast.

Weather Mod: Climates of Tamriel mod (version 5.0) is needed for the intended visuals. Install it ONLY with default settings + DLC options (assuming that you have the DLCs). Do not select anything else  during installation.

4- MOD MANAGER INSTALLATION: in Files tab, download Insanity ENB Data files and install it by your mod manager (let overwrite everything). Manual Installation of these files is not recommended and I will not support it. Put DAHAKAs Cot  esp plugin AFTER (bellow) Climates of Tamriel DLC esps and BEFORE (above) Enhanced Lights and FX one, in your load order:

- Other plugins........
- ClimatesOfTamriel-Dawnguard-Patch.esp

NOTE: You Need BOTH the main files and Data files for this preset to work 

5- Run the game and enjoy the new look.


In the Skyrim folder, delete: enbseries folder, d3d9.dll ; enbhost.exe ; enblocal.ini and enbseries.ini . In your mod manager uninstall the Insanity ENB Data files. 


To update to a new version of Insanity ENB, in your Skyrim Folder delete enbseries folder and enbseries.ini file and install the same folder and file from the current version of Insanity ENB main files. Don't need to delete enblocal.ini file nor uninstall Data files.


This is a HEAVY ENB preset!  I recommend at least a GPU like GTX 970 (or equivalent) to run it  with playable framerate. With my specs  (Intel i5 4690 3,5-3,9 Ghz ; GTX 1070  8gb VRAM and 16 gb RAM)  I'm running the game + this preset with 45 -60 FPS almost all the time (1920 x 1080 resolution), but FPS drops occurs in some places. Consider to disable Depth of field effect in ENB ingame menu (shift + Enter) if you need more FPS.
