K ENB ' Pure Light ' Special Edition

ALL

Please read this decription page carefully and entirely.

Here is a very WIP version of K ENB, remastered for Skyrim Special Edition.
For now, ENB Binaries functionalities are pretty limited for this new version of TESV.
K ENB will evolve along ENB future developments.
Please bare with me if it doesn't feel home for users of my previous presets designed for Skyrim 2011.

Lots of changes and adjustments to come. I'm releasing this version as a test one, hoping that some of you can enjoy it.

Be warned that the download size is quite heavy, since my setup relies on various textures for lens, dirt, grain effects.
Also, the game will take a generous time to load, since there is a lot to load from ENB shaders.

Ha, one thing; I get the occasion to salute the unvaluable work of Marty MCFLY, without whom a tiny bit of this setup only would have been doable. His Advanced DOF is not only gorgeous, but evolves every day.
So please, if endorsing my preset, endorse this great guy's works as well. He deserves it much more than I do.

Best to all of you
K

::

Please download the ENB 0.310 binary first
Then download and install ReShade 3.0.5

Then, install ONLY their binaries to your Skyrim main folder.

For ENB Series :

d3d11.dll
d3dcompiler_46e.dll

For reShade :

dxgi.dll


BASIC INSTALLATION PROCESS
Don't use Mods managers to install K ENB Pure Light, it can't work since NMM installs files in Skyrim's Data folder, not in main folder.
Copy the folder's contents to their correct destinations :
All files shall go to your Skyrim Special Edition Main folder.
Download and install ReShade 3.0.5 and point its installer to the Skyrim.exe.
DON'T download the shader collection, use mine since they're modified.
Use ONLY the Reshade binary (dxgi.dll) from your download.

IMPORTANT : Check the dxgi.ini in my files, and open it using a text editor (f.e. Notepadd ++, highly adviced)
Spot these lines :

TextureSearchPaths=D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition,D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\reshade-shaders\Textures
EffectSearchPaths=D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition,D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition\reshade-shaders\Shaders
ScreenshotPath=D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim Special Edition

And modify them to have them pointing to your hard drive (most common is C:\) on which Skyrim SE is installed.

Personally, I don't install games on my system drive, that's why it points to another drive.

If not done, add these lines to your SkyrimPrefs.ini, [Display] section :
bTreesReceiveShadows=1
bDrawLandShadows=1
bShadowsOnGrass=1

Also, the following section HAS to be set like this :

[Imagespace]
bDoDepthOfField=0
bLensFlare=1

SET YOUR RESOLUTION IN THE FILES :
enbglobaldefs.fx

#define fWidth 1920.0
#define fHeight 1080.0

Save the file. Done.

This step is important, since some effects are indexed upon texels.

Please DO calibrate your monitor
Try to avoid any light source too close to your display

Back up the following:
The current ENB you're using if currently using one
Your game inis, located in MyDocuments/MyGames/SKyrim

Purposes

K ENB Pure Light aims at offering a "livefull" experience of TESV SKyrim.
It's built for making the more of things "pop" and "live" in the game.
Lights, colors, sun, objects, I've been tweaking my preset to make them pop up.
It's mainly built for quality.
Performance is matter of the way the game, the mods, the inis, your rig are interacting.
ENB can't solve ALL performance issues, and it won't.
Eye candy comes at a price, and it's a natural rule.
Please do remember that any ENB preset will always remain a WIP.
K ENB Pure Light is full of imperfections, and I'm learning everyday.
But I think it can provide enough great sights and moments to be shared.
If possible, I highly advice running the game downsampled from a higher resolution, f.e. 1440p, at least.


Features
Highly reworked Bloom, featuring depth, saturation, vibrance, grain, scale controls, and so on.
Slightly modified Adavanced Depth Of Field from Marty MacFly, with desaturation, vibrance, grain and dynamics controls.
Highly modified color correction shader, offering more options than you will ever use.
Extended PostPass shader, featuring all kind of effects and corrections.




What will I answer and what will I ignore ?
I'll answer all specific troubleshooting about the mod, assuming the facts you read this page and you dared visiting enbdev.com.
I won't answer to 'my game is too bright' or 'my game is too dark', or 'can you make it less blue ?'. I have developed this preset basing on my tastes, my rig, my display, and most important, my eyes. I can't make modifications upon each one's tastes or eyes.
I'll totally ignore :
All that's already been covered in this page, a/o several times in the comments section.
Comments about the description page, myself, other ENB presets, other mods.
Strictly tastes-related comments, to each his own.
Tweaking advices, I'm no one to teach.
Weather modifiers of Lighting modifiers compatibility issues.
Basic trolling, since I'll simply enjoy it without wasting my time.




BASIC DISCLAIMER
K ENB Pure Light Special Edition has been developped upon vanilla game and ELFX. It will be technically compatible with any lighting or weather mod, but I can't take any responsability about possible unwanted results.
