What Preset to use you ask???

Rustic- (Weather Mod Link: Rustic) This is a gloomy feel of a preset. Colors are toned down while not being under-saturated. This preset tries to bring out what most would consider the world of Skyrim to feel and look like. You will find clear sunny days to look nice with some dull colors while cloudy/stormy weathers to be darker and grey. 

NAT-(Weather Mod Link: NAT) If you like a more natural and realistic looking game this is for you. Colors are vibrant but darker to add to the realism. Lighting is balanced out very well and appears very natural. Day time is bright and ambient and stormy weathers a grey/gloomy. You will find sunny/clear weathers more vibrant compared to colors darker in stormy/darker weathers. 

Vivid-(Weather Mod Link: Vivid) This a bit of realism with a hint of fantasy. Colors are little brighter/vibrant compared to the NAT preset especially at different times of day and depending on the weather. Lighting tends to be on the darker side. (Not dark as in no light just not as bright or ambient) Stormy weathers are dark/grey and gloomy. 

COT-(Weather Mod Link: COT) This is close to a realism preset but ambient light tends to be brighter. Colors are more towards a realistic tone. Colors tend to change depending on if you are in brighter areas vs shadow/dark areas but, tend to be a lighter tone in nature. The lighting tends to be more impactful at times adding to the realism. Storms are very immersive and atmospheric. (V5.4se of COT is a much better improvement over previous version of the mod)

Dolomite- (Weather Mod Link: Dolomite) This is more closer to a fantasy/realism preset. This preset tends to be more on the colorful side compared to dolomite on its own. The sky is a brighter blue and the foliage can have a nice green tone to it. Depending on the weather colors will vary. The preset is a bit brighter when if comes to ambient light. Some weathers are brighter then others as well as more colorful at times. This weather mod has some very nice rays that shine through the fog and trees as well. 

Obsidian- (Weather Mod Link: Obsidian ) This has a taste of realistic tone along with fantasy. Colors can be vibrant and beautiful while also feeling grim in stormy weathers. This version tends to have very atmospheric foggy weathers and cold and dark rainy weathers. Clear weathers are bright and colorful. 

Vanilla- If you like staying along the lines of the new Skyrim SE visuals by Bethesda. 

Here are some videos of the different presets Re-Engaged offers. 

------------------------Videos by Firemanaf----------------------


Here are some shots to give you an example of what the presets can look like. Also, see mod list below to see what mods are used in shots.


Gamma/Brightness- I would leave at default (1.0 in SkyrimPrefs). However you can adjust as needed if you find too dark. 
Note: If you are using ENB version you adjust brightness via the ENB menu by hitting shift+Enter and under colorcorrection adjust brightness. But this will apply to all times of day. I would recommend more using the enbeffect file to adjust Day Night and Interior (DNI) settings. See video on how to in the install section below. 

Click to see ENB Menu Brightness Control


Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO)- I would leave on unless you are using my Ultimate & Quality Presets which have ENB SSAO-SSIL added and you can then disable SSAO.  Otherwise this is personal preference.

Click to see Game Option to disable SSAO


Anti Aliasing/Sharpening- This really a personal preference between TAA and FXAA. However, some find TAA can cause blurring especially with moving vs standing still while playing. If you are using my DOF as well it can mess things up with TAA too. So, if you are experiencing that I would recommend switching to FXAA and the using additional GPU driver AA ( I do recommend enhance or adding additional  FXAA through driver)

You can even add FXAA through your GPU driver or even enhance in-game AA through your driver. (See GPU settings below)

Note: If you find you sharpening is too much in my preset if could be the combo of the AA settings and my sharpen settings. My sharpening settings are based on the average user most likely using TAA for AA only and not having and GPU adjustments. You will most likely have to adjust sharpening in you find sharpening to strong.

GPU Driver Setting for AA- I recommend you enhance your AA through your GPU as well as turn on FXAA, AF & Texture Filtering. Especially if you are noticing shimmering effects in LODs and in Trees/Grass.
(These settings are not all inclusive. Its highly dependent on your preference. )

DOF- If you are using an Ultimate Preset and prefer my DOF you can disable

ENB vs ReShade Only versions

ReShade and ENB version are the exact same except ENB version is using ENB DOF (Better than ReShade DOF) and Bloom effects in the Ultimate Presets. Plus as of 2.8.1 ENB version use day night interior shader to allow individual adjustments for brightness, contrast, saturation and tone mapping. As more updates come out for ENB I will be adding more to the ENB version.

Ultimate Edition- This is for those that want best image quality and are ok with the performance hit. This includes all effects such as Bloom, DOF and SSAO-SSIL active which really enhance the image.

  This is what most user will probably use. This is a good image quality but, has DOF disabled. Bloom and SSAO-SSIL are still active

This is for those that want only the color corrections to maintain good performance. All heavy hitting effects such as DOF, Bloom and SSAO-SSIL are disabled.

 How to change ReShade Hot Key:

Open ReShade folder and then open common file. Make #define RFX_ToggleKey VK_F10 and change F10 to a key you want

If you find your game crashed when you use ReShade or ENB (Always try this first)

Try installing: Link: Visual C++  Start with 2015 and test and if doesn't work try install previous year versions too. Also you can try installing Link: Direct X (Download and extract files to a folder. Run the DXSETUP application) which may help some users as well. Also try this link: DirectX End-User Web Installer

 If ReShade won't load/crashes or takes to long to load (Try this second)

1. Try running in windowed mode if running fullscreen or vice versa
2. If that doesn't work switch to reshade only version and rename dxgi.dll to d3d11.dll. Sadly wont be able to use ENB.  

If you find you are getting frame rate drops and stutters

If you are running game in windowed bordeless mode try switching to Fullscreen mode. Also, if you are using the ENB version you can try opening enblocal file and make ForceVsync=false to true and EnableFPSLimiter=false to true. 

If you want to change HDR Hotkey:

Open ReShade folder and then open SweetFX and find #define HDR_ToggleKey VK_F11 and change F11 to a key you want

How to adjust the focal point of the DOF (ReShade only users)

Open ReShade and open McFX and adjust #define DOF_INFINITEFOCUS 0.28. Higher value will push out and lower will make things have to be close to turn on

 How to adjust the strength of the DOF (ReShade reshade only users)

Open ReShade and open McFX and adjust #define DOF_BLURRADIUS 10.0. Higher is more blur.  Lower is less blur. 

How to disable DOF effect permanently (ReShade/ENB Ultimate only users)

ReShade Users: Open ReShade and open the McFX file and make  #define USE_DEPTHOFFIELD 1 to #define USE_DEPTHOFFIELD 0
ENB Users: Open enbseries file and change EnableDepthofField to False

 If you find the image too dark or bright. You probably need to calibrate your monitor.

Use the following 2 website to help with calibrating your monitors. Click:  Black Level TestWhite Level Test

Night eye or predator vision not working with ENB

ENB disabled in-game post processing. So only way you can use it is when you need to use Night Eye open ENB Menu and check the line
"Apply Game Color Correction" in the enbeffect section, this enable vanilla image spaces however my preset is not tuned for this to always be active and will make the image looked washed out at times/brighter and colors may look off.
