Q: How do I open the ENB menu?
A: Press the END key on your keyboard.

Q: I have black bars at the top and bottom of the screen and don't like it. How do I disable it?

A: Open ENB menu and deactivate Letterbox effect in enbpostpass.fx.
You can also disable other effects like Grain, Vignette and CA if you dont like that kind of stuff.

Q: Q: My image is too dark/bright at interiors/exteriors/night etc...?
A: Bring up the ENB menu and adjust the settings under "USER ADJUSTMENTS" in enbpostpass.fx according to your needs.

Q: What is that droplet like effect on my screen?
A: That would be the lens effect. You can toggle it in the ENB menu in-game
under
"Enable Lens"

Q: What is that colored tint to my screen?
A: That's the LUT. It's like an instagram filter. Go into the ENB menu and find enbpostpass.fx
to change the LUT or disable it

Q: The Depth of Field is too strong / too weak?
A:
Install another preset. A package with different DOF presets is included in the download.

Q: How do I deactivate "Depth of Field"?
A: Bring up the ENB menu and find the tab "Effect" under "enbseries.ini" and uncheck "EnableDepthOfField". Don't forget to press "Save Configuration". Alternatively, you can switch the "Depth of Field" on and off by pressing "F7" on your keyboard.

Q: The shadows on my character do not look good?

A: This is a SSAO problem and is due to the performance. Set the parameters ResolutionScale=0.5 and
SourceTexturesScale=0.5 in enbseries.ini to higher values, maximum 1.0.
ATTENTION! The FPS drop is like a punch in the balls. Therefore, higher values should only be used for screenshots.





To get the same results as in the screenshots, Dolomite Weathers is highly recommended, as the main weather mod.*

Download the latest ENBseries from enbdev.com.
Extract the files d3d11.dll and d3dcompiler_46e.dll from wrapper version folder to your Skyrim Special Edition folder.

Download the latest eVx ENB preset from files section of this Nexus page.
Extract the contents of the MAIN folder to Skyrim Special Edition folder.


*eVx should work with all common weather mods, but the effort to manage them all in detail is too much for me. So if you use another weather mod than Dolomite Weathers, you have to make some adjustments. Mainly sky and sun in the enbseries.ini. Also the AGGC settings under enbeffect. For all of them I recommend the default settings for tweaking as a base.




These mods are strongly recommended to use the full potential of eVx!
