  3. best skyrim ini configs?
3 years ago#1
I've been googling trying to find one and everyone has a different one, is there a cookie cutter amazing graphics for a high end gaming pc skyrim.ini and skyrimprefs.ini? so far all I've done with my ini's has been changed water, grass, trees, and shadows slightly, upped my field of view, turned off that annoying depth of field, and allowed myself to take screenshots

I've got TPC and with dense lush grass and big lush trees and every HD retexture I've found that sounds good so far, along with SweetFX enb injector, but it doesn't have that cinematic quality most peoples' screenshots have and it's gotta be from the .ini's

Well, if you have an nVidia card, just use the nVidia ini tweak guide. If you don't use nVidia, I don't know what to tell you.

there's a reason why everyone's .ini is different -- because very few people have the exact same computer hardware & software installed, and their own preferences might vary more than others (ie: someone might find a hit down to 40 fps worth seeing grass 100 yards farther, whereas someone else might just turn off grass all together and get 60+ fps, as a random example).

find a tweak guide -- like the nvidia one mentioned, use google for it ya lazy bum. If you're not using nvidia, but still following a tweak guide, you can still do most of the tweaks yourself within reason (as in, if you're using the newest radeon HD card, you can expect to get away with bumping stuff to beyond ultra, but if you're using an 8 year old card that can barely play the game on medium settings, obviously take more conservative//performance minded steps).

haha alright alright I'll find a guide, I've got a single eVGA GTX 670 (great card deathbot) so I'll have to find a specific ini tweak guide, so far the nvidia guide I was using only told me to add 3 things to ini and I feel more can be done, thanks both for the direction

This is the guide I used and features far more than just three things to modify.
