About this mod

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

Permissions and credits
Updated for Skyrim Anniversary Edition
Skyrim Priority SE Anniversary
Tired of setting priority manually every time after game startup?
This lightweight mod sets your game priority to High automatically.
It ensured the game always takes most of the CPU usage and prevents sudden lag caused by other processes.
Now Skyrim can do the same.

Kick other processes out. Skyrim is the only one that should have the 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 does this mod work?
Skyrim Priority SE simply calls the WinApi SetPriorityClass in SKSE Plugin DllMain.

Q: Work on the previous version of SKSE64/VR?
There's no SKSE Version Checking in plugin.
And the implementation of this mod is not hard dependent on version even skse itself.
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 rather than a standalone new game.
I can sure Skyrim Priority SE does work on Enderal SE.

Q: Compatibility?
Compatible with everything.

Q: So how do I know if 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.

If you turned DynamicPriority on. It will be BelowNormal because you are not focus on Game Window.
After you return to Game it will back to High.

It's Normal by default without Mod or softwares like Process Lasso.

Check the Microsoft Official Document for the details:

# Idle          = 0
# Below Normal  = 1
# Normal        = 2
# Above Normal  = 3
# High          = 4
# Realtime      = 5     (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.
The only thing you need to do is change the install path:
"Data/SKSE/Plugins" to "Data/F4SE/Plugins"

Or just simply download Fallout Priority
