About this mod

Finally out of beta and better than ever! Perfected lighting conditions, expanded weather support, and updated shaders. Utilizes ENBSeries to add true HDR, add and replace visual effects, and revamp lighting.

This mod comes with better VSync that will eliminate stuttering and give you better performance than the original that comes with the game.

Locate iVSyncPresentInterval=1 in your skyrimprefs.ini file, located under documents/my games/Skyrim Special Edition and change it to iVSyncPresentInterval=0 if it isn't already.

It is also recommended to turn off lens flare and snow shader.

This mod was designed around ObsidianCathedral, NAT, Vivid Weathers, Rustic Weathers, Aequinoctium, and Obscura Weathers

This mod is also compatible with all interior lighting mods as it doesn't make any drastic changes to interiors.

  1. Head over to ENBDev and download the latest binaries
  2. Unpackage the binaries using a program such as Winrar or 7-Zip and place only the
  3. d3d11.dll and d3dcompiler_46e from the "wrapper version" into your Skyrim Special Edition directory.
  4. Download your preferred version of XENB (Screenarchery, Gameplay, Performance, Low-End)
  5. Unpackage the files and place the files in your Skyrim Special Edition directory

Screenarchery: Features included are, Depth of field, Godrays, Skinspecular, and ENB rain effects. Will take a considerable toll on your FPS.

Gameplay: Contains all effects to experience the full potential of XENB minus the added cinematic effects found in the screenarchery version. Expect decent performance on an average gaming rig in most scenarios.

Performance: A few stripped back features most notably replacing the ENB SSAO with the Skyrim default SSAO. Better performance.

Low-End: Only a few core features still included. Very minimal FPS drop

For optimal performance and best looks I would reccomend Ultimate Immersion's Micro Mod List until I can release my mod list

(Advanced users only) While in-game press shift+tab to open the ENB menu to toggle or tweak certain effect to your liking.
To toggle the effect, tick the option under GLOBAL that reads UseEffect
To uninstall use a program such as ENB and ReShade Manager to remove all traces of ENB.

Please feel free to post any criticism under the discussion tab ;)
