Crazy Shadows Bug

  • Topic Archived
3 years ago#1
I am having troubles with Skyrim, lately. It would seem that a lot of the shadows are missing, and when you walk under where one should be, the whole world goes dark in shadow. This has surfaced after the 1.5 update, and I am using no texture mods (Unless you count Armor textures as one) I really would like some help on this problem, and am hoping to see some fixes soon.

I have this problem too, but I haven't found a fix for it yet. There is a workaround though; you can disable the shadows, but it will still flicker a little bit, though not as much.

I just got a mod that gets rid of shadows. Works out though because of the FPS boost from having no shadows, I put some mods in that enhance the lighting ne ways.

I had this happen but only after I reduced the lighting distance. Try bumping the lighting distance up higher and see if that fixes it (unless that makes your framerate take a dive).

Are you using a ATI card?
cuz it seems this glitch only occurs for ATI users

I have this glitch and I don't use an ATI card.

I also don't have an ATI/AMD card, but I've seen something similar to this happen when I turned the lighting distance down. Then the room would suddenly go dark if I stepped to the wrong spot. I don't recall if it had anything to do with standing where there were shadows or not... I was just experimenting with the settings to see what I could turn down without noticing.

It seems like you Skyrim/SkyrimPrefs.ini files are messed up. Back them up then delete them and launch Skyrim. If if doesn't work delete them and put the backed up ones back.

Would really love a fix for this issue. Just picked up Skyrim again after leaving it hanging for about 2-3 months and this was the first thing I noticed. I have a pretty crappy Nvidia card so that rules out the ATI card deal. How likely is it that Bethesda will come around with a patch to fix this? Or are we boned/ have to depend on mods?
*NEW* Working on a playlist, tell me what you think of it.
