On the to ic of &?&E lugins, I also highly recommend everyone download and install the &table u;ridsToFoad lugin 5htt :++www#ne"usmods#com+skyrim+mods+)7B1(6 which will hel revent certain crashes that can ha en even at the default u;rids value of B#

8lso, in addition to the -emory 8llocation !atch I suggest o ening the &?&E#ini it laces in your &kyrim $9 :ata $9 &?&E folder and adding the following:

I!:8TE: &ee the G8NTI8FI8&IN;H section of enblocal#ini for more information on various additional 88 o tions#



It is recommended whenever you install a new ENB or u date, that you run the &kyrim launcher to u date your config files before checking the above settings, as they can sometimes get reverted after running the launcher for the first time after an u date 5or after a video driver u date6# Kust o en the launcher, verify your settings, and close it as normal# Lou don't have to change anything to u date your settings, Must running the launcher is enough# Then check the above values in &kyrim!refs#ini to make sure they are still correct#


In your &kyrim Fauncher settings, set 8ntialiasing and 8nisotro ic %iltering to 2Off 5best erformance62 since both are handled by the mod with better Juality and faster erformance# @O3E4E=, for the record you /8N set %N88 on in the launcher under the advanced settings, and it :OE& hel to smooth things out even more# If your system can handle it, this is a decent and erformance$friendly com liment to !NENB's &-88, which looks Juite a bit like ENB's Edge88# If your system really has some muscle though, I suggest trying out ENB's Trans arency88 5in enblocal#ini6 which doesn't look near as blurry as %N88 or Edge88#

In your video card settings 5N4I:I8 /ontrol !anel or /atalyst /ontrol /enter6 make sure both 8ntialiasing and 8nisotro ic %iltering are either off or set to 28 lication /ontrolled,2 and the 2Te"ture %iltering $ Negative FO: Bias2 5or something similar6 is set to 2/lam 2 or 2Off2 5this is taken from the official ENB documentation#6 8lso, if your video card settings su ort 8mbient Occlusion for &kyrim, make sure that is off as well as it will

conflict with the better looking ENB version from this mod# -ake sure 4sync is set to 28 lication /ontrolled2 as well since !NENB does this through ENB 5and don't try to force it anywhere else either6, and if you have a 2-a"imum re$rendered frames2 o tion I suggest also setting it to 28 lication /ontrolled2#

One final consideration:

If you have any color+saturation+vibrancy settings enabled through your video drivers or any mod that adMusts fog, lights, or lets you configure color and other values in$game, I highly recommend turning them off until you have decided how you like this ENB configuration by itself#


O tional :e th of %ield:

If you would refer to use :e th of %ield, which actually looks retty cool 5es ecially for screenshots6, sim ly enable it from the in$game ENB config editor 5see hotkey section6# /lick to save the configuration at the to of the editor and it will remember your reference# 8lternately, you can manually edit the same value in enbseries#ini#

NOTE: This ENB configuration uses &ub!i"el -or hological 8nti 8liasing 5included6, which is better than %N88 with very low erformance cost# If you would refer to use a different screen s ace anti$aliasing 5like a custom %N886, you will need to change the !=ONL setting in enblocal#ini to oint to the correct #:FF# Or if you would refer to turn off this mod's 88 altogether, for e"am le to force another method through video drivers, you can edit enblocal#ini and set Enable!ro"yFibrary to false#

!erformance O tions:

If you find the default version too slow, first test setting &i.e&caleD'#) and

&ourceTe"tures&caleD'#) under the G&&8O,&&IFH section of enbseries#ini# Lou can try lowering &i.e&cale and &ourceTe"tures&cale even lower to something between '#0 and '#), though you must do this manually by editing the file in note ad or something similar rior to running the game 5can't be modified in$game6# If that still seems too slow you can set Enable8mbientOcclusionDfalse under the GE%%E/TH section and+or :etailed&hadowOualityD( under the G&@8:O3H section#
