For the Skyrim fans...

Figured I'd share this, it's been made into a mod to replace the standard inn music.

Might just have to uninstall it.

I'm not working with crap specs here either...
I feel your pain..

after dumping all mods from my v1.3 game - I decide to start afresh..
now I'm running a re-installed (vanilla) 1.4 with the Hi-Res(official) D/L
luckily I still had all the gamesaves, etc..

- I'm now gonna try installing the Better Bods mod from SkyrimNexus over
the top of the current set-up..

I'm using one of the HD mods and it gobbles up the VRAM. Haven't ried the offical texture pack, but can only assume it's doing the same.

Check with After burners MAX vram usage, you might have to disable FXAA or lower the xAA. I went from around 1GB usage up to 1450~ ish. It could be the frame buffer.

Yeah, the differences could be described as subtle at best.

Also as main menu screen.
Skyrim Main Menu - Replacement at Skyrim Nexus - Skyrim Mods and community

A nice change TBH, especially with the smaller cirsor and nicer fonts



@smaretey,
I tried the official HD pack and wasnt all that impressed TBH. I mean, in some places it looks really good, and in others not so much. Plus, I seemed to get a few random purple textures with it. Not sure why. Un-install the official HD pack all was well, and would reapear with it enabled.

I dunno .. I have many other texture mods that are superior to it, and seem to to actually run better. Even my own Im working on (at least IMO)

I guess what Im trying to say is ... if you haven't registered it to your account yet .. I wouldn't. its not really worth it. The Nexus Mod community does a better job I think.


Theres also the added issue that it disables any texture mods you currently have. Lets say you grab a re-tex of something like the Egyptian themed Elven armor. With the official HD pack, it will over-ride that with the default textures.
The only way around is with esp plug-ins or the steam workshop, as far as I know.

I noticed that also. Usually with some large cheese wheels.

Yeah, I don't think I'm going to bother with the official pack. It doesn't seem to add any more than the mod I'm using. The one I'm using doesn't hurt performance or add glitches and by the sound of it, the official doesn't have the WoW factor either.

Tbh, unless I really start focussing on textures, I can live with some of the low res ones.

But thanks for the heads up.

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.
