Boy you guys are fast, I've only killed 5 dragons. I've been all over the place doing side quests and and things. In fact I'm only at level 22

Guess I'm not playing as much and as long as you guys.

You can turn it off in the ini if you want. I'm sure you already know that though. I know you visit tweakguides.com.
I actually did this, sort of.

I disabled Vsync in the ini, but also turned off AA and AF in the launcher.

But, in the Nvidia Control Panel, I forced Vsync On, and x4AA and x16AF.


I was getting odd outlines on occasions (not consistantly) with the games AA. Depending on the lightling, it would sometime be like a faint halo around things (usually my character). Best I can describe what I was seeing.
For whatever reason, forcing all 3 of these options in the NCP helped resolve the majority of small issues I was seeing.

This all helped a bit overall for my Nvidia setup, but I would guess it would help AMD cards too?
I think the game just has issues right now with Vsync and AA.

The last 4-5 dragons I've come across I've gotten hosed on. Two of them I could never get their attention and after flying around ignoring me for 5 mintes flew off. One I killed but was too overloaded to take the bones and scales so went home to unload and when I came back the skeleton was gone :/ (Note: loot dragon and drop bones/scales on ground before leaving) And the last one I killed was on a hillside and the dragon wouldn't stop "moving" after it died and I didn't get to abosrb it's soul. It just layed there dead but twitching and never burned away :P

Thanks.

I think I'll finish the game before trying any of the current mods out for now.

To V-Sync or not.....

For those thinking about turning off V-Sync check this thread out - Do NOT disable vSync! - Bethesda Softworks Forums

I reported earlier that I had tearing and bad stuttering when I disabled V-Sync on my game - Discuss Skyrim

Anyway just something to think about before trying the tweak.

Been hooked on this game for a week now. It's rare these days that a game so completely captures my imagination and reminds me of the books I used to read as a kid to escape life.. before PC's.

I'm currently at level 27, grinding my way through every side quest and random cave I can find without actually taking a side in the civil war or advancing the main story line too far.


I've also explored the Nexus mods that are freely available... if you're really into this game, there's a couple mods worth checking out. All of these mods are available through the Nexus website.

1) Vurts Foliage Mods: These mods greatly increase the quality of the trees. Good stuff when you're tromping about Skyrim, looking for the next " Oh wow... " moment. (Most likely requires an enthusiast gaming PC)

2) FXAA post process injector: Does wonderful things for the overall look of Skyrim by increasing the saturation, bloom and other graphical effects in-game. You can tweek your settings by editing the .ini file that is installed on your Skyrim directory. (Most likely requires an enthusiast gaming PC)

3) Detailed Faces, Bodies and eyes : Basic graphic enhancements that improve the look of the NPC's you deal with.

4) Nude Females : Yes.. this is an adult mod. It only changes what is underneath female NPC armor.. should you decide to remove it once they are dead.... ( Protip: Holding down "E" over an object allows you to move it )

5) Large Address RAM Mod : Removes the RAM cap on any .exe. This lets you allow the Skyrim.exe to use as much RAM as it needs. Only recommended for those with high RAM systems.


There are new mods every day, some great... some not so great. All in all, the texture and graphical mods are worth looking into. They are extremely easy to install (Copy and Paste into the right location in the Skyrim directory)

Discuss: Bulletstorm
So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
