For those wanting to discuss Skyrim.

OK, for those that have AMD cards, AMD has released a new driver to improve performance issuse in the game.

Quote:
Elder Scrolls Skyrim

o Improves performance 2-7% on single GPU configurations
o Resolve corruption seen when enabling Multi-Sample Anti-Aliasing on the AMD Radeon HD 6970 Series
o Disables CrossFireX (to resolve negative scaling and image quality issues seen when CrossFireX is enabled)
§ AMD is continuing to work on a CrossFireX solution for Skyrim – as soon as it’s ready we’ll make it publicly available

And speaking of frame drops....

In Skyrim has anyone been to the Mages College? If you have have you noticed stuttering as you get closer to entering the building?

I've seen this no where else in the game but at the college. In that area you have lots of snow and the lighting effects



The funny thing is is once you get insdie the building, which has way more going on the frames pick back up



This is 100 percent reproducible for me. It doesn’t kill the game play but you definitely notice the frame drops.

Anyone else experience this?

Playing on the PC here with things turned up just a tad too high so I get bits of frame rate stuttering now and then all over. Not enough to get me to want to turn down the draw istance or use a lower resolution, just right on the edge

Well my game is at max settings at 1920x1080 and so far the only stuttering I got was in the Mages college area outside. That's it thus far. I'm going to give the new ATI drivers a try and visit that area again and see what happens. Will post the results once I'm done.

BTW Bethesda's stuttering problems experienced in all their games, well the ones I played - Fallout 3, New Vegas, Oblivion, hasn't been much of an issue for me in Skyrim other than the area I mentioned.

Now the one issue I do have is the mouse sometimes loses focus when viewing your inventory.

And I did have this one weird issue where my mouse quit working altogether while I was fighting some flying wizard guy - all of a sudden I couldn't use the mouse to turn or use weapons - I had to restart the game to get it working again. Just weird.

Ditto.

Just waiting for the patch near Thanksgiving. Supposed to address some of the performance issues. Also the lower framerates compounded also due to Vsync being enabled I've heard. 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've been keeping an eye on the mods and such but I've been so busy playing I've not spent any time yet actually applying anything

I upped my stuttering a bit when I upped the popup distance some. Playing at 1920x1200 on a 480 which is like last years card now.

I should take a break and spend some time tweaking this weekend

Same card here, except playing at 1920x1080.

I actually tried the V-Sync turn off tweak and I got texture tearing and bad lag using that tweak. Yes, I used the one posted here - TweakGuides.com - Archived News

Quote:
To disable VSync you must add iPresentInterval=0 under [Display] in Skyrim.ini, not SkyrimPrefs.ini, otherwise it won't work

BTW I just tried the new drivers and the lag at the mages college is reduced somewhat but you still notice it. So in that area, the drivers did improve the game a little.

Haven't done any other playing other than checking that area to say if there's a vast improvement yet though.


Also there was a small patch released to tie the launcher to Steam but....

Quote:
A tiny patch to Skyrim has disabled many of file tweaks that players have been making to improve Skyrim’s visuals. RPS noticed growing annoyance on the Skyrim forums as players discovered that the popular Large Address Aware tweak that lets Skyrim recognise more than 2GB of ram on 64 bit systems has stopped working since the update.
