While nothing bests a great ENB, they can, for many, completely tank FPS.
SKYRIM RE-SHADED is an attempt to bring ENB style colour, tone, sharpness, and effects while maintaining the highest possible performance levels.


Included:

At present, this mod includes four ReShade presets. Each is designed with a different aesthetic in mind, each created to have a minimum impact on performance:
  • Wild West - Features enhanced colours with sepia tones, ambient lighting, fine detail sharpening and slightly darker nights and dungeons. Sunsets evoke the wonder of a new world and campfires call out in vibrant orange to the weary traveler.
  • High Fantasy - Features vibrant, magical colours, crisp texture sharpening, and contrasting lights and darks to reflect the high fantasy dichotomy of good vs evil.  
  • Grim Winter - Showcases the rugged nature of Skyrim with a muted colour palette, detailed filmic sharpening, film grain, and ambient lighting. 
  • Clear View - Remains more true to Skyrim's natural palette while enhancing while creating more vibrance and light. Detailed sharpening brings out the beauty of texture mods and makes it feel as though a fog has been lifted.

Compatibility:

This mod is compatible with all other mods, except for other Re-Shade presets (as only one can be run at a time). Indeed, this mod is best accompanied by texture and lighting mods. It works equally well with all the various weather mods, texture packs, and even ENBs.

Performance:

Tested on mid-range machines, these presets reduce fps by 2-4. My higher range rig reported no fps drop, and a very low range laptop reported a 3-7 fps drop.

Installation:

PART 1 - INSTALL RESHADE

  • Download the latest version of ReShade
  • Run the ReShade.exe
  • Click on the top box and point it towards your SkyrimSE.exe
  • Select the Direct3D 10/11/12

  • Reshade is now installed.

PART 2 - INSTALL SKYRIM RE-SHADED

  • Download the mod and extract the four settings files to your Skyrim directory (where the SkyrimSE.exe is)
  • Load up the game.
  • On the menu screen press the home button. 
  • A configuration menu will appear, click the 'Home' tab and select one of the .ini files (SR_WildWest, SR_GrimWinter, SR_ClearView, SR_HighFantasy)
  • You can change preset at any time during play by pressing the home button. 
  • You can also play around with the settings, or even create your own setting by selecting the 'SR_MyOwnPreset' and playing around with the different shaders. If you create somethign brilliant, let me know and I'll include it in the mod!
