About this mod

Make Skyrim always take most of CPU usage
Increase FPS and Prevent suddenly lag caused by other processes

Permissions and credits
Skyrim Priority SE
Tired of setting priority manually everytime after game startup?
Many modern games will set their priority to High automatically.
It ensured the game always take most of CPU usage, prevent suddenly lag caused by other processes.
Now Skyrim can do the same.

Kick other processes out. Skyrim is the only one who should have whole CPU.
Be a wonder chicken Rude and Unreasonable.

SKSE DLL Only. No esp or papyrus script

Fallout 4 Version: Fallout Priority
SkyrimLE Version: Skyrim Priority LE

  1.  Install by Mod Manager or Extract manually.
  2.  It's so simple that even don't have step 2

Q: How this mod work?
Skyrim Priority SE simply calls the WinApi SetPriorityClass in SKSE Plugin DllMain.

Q: Work on previous version of SKSE64/VR?
There's no SKSE Version Checking in plugin.
And the implementation of this mod is not dependent on version even skse.
So it should work on all SKSE64/VR version even F4SE.

Q: Skyrim VR Support?
I don't have VR. But some VR users confirmed this mod do work on SkyrimVR and Enderal SE VR.

Q: Address Library?
It's only for version independent address searching. But Skyrim Priority SE doesn't do that.
So this mod don't need it.

Q: Work on Enderal SE?
Enderal SE is essentially a Skyrim SE Mod and require SKSE64.
I can sure Skyrim Priority SE does work on Enderal SE.

Q: Compatibility?
Compatible with everything.

Q: Does not appear to be an SKSE plugin in SKSE log
For Maximum Script Extender Compatibility. This is not a typical SKSE Plugin.
Implementation of this mod is in DllMain instead PluginLoad.
So this line you see means the Mod is loaded into memory by SKSE.
And DllMain is invoked. The Mod is working well. you can ignore it.

Q: So how do I know is this mod working?
After game startup. You can open Task Manager by press "Ctrl+Shift+Esc". Go to Details Tab.
Right click on SkyrimSE.exe and check is the value of "Set priority" is High.
It's Normal by default without Mod or softwares like Process Lasso.

Check the Microsoft Official Document for the details:

# Idle          = 64
# Below Normal  = 16384
# Normal        = 32
# Above Normal  = 32768
# High          = 128
# Realtime      = 256   (Require run SKSE as Administrator)

Skyrim Priority SE uses High by default
It's a safe priority that won't interrupt critical jobs by Windows or etc.
You can change it in PriorityMod.toml If you want other priority.

About Realtime Priority
You should almost never use Realtime, because this interrupts system threads that manage mouse input, keyboard input, and background disk flushing. This class can be appropriate for applications that "talk" directly to hardware or that perform brief tasks that should have limited interruptions.

For Fallout4
This mod can also work on Fallout 4 directly.
Only thing you need to do is change the install path:
"Data/SKSE/Plugins" to "Data/F4SE/Plugins"

Or just simply download Fallout Priority
