Dear Step Community,
Like many of you, I have been testing out different post processing specs to see which combination of mods would make my game look incredible.
However, after reading through some comments on the forums ofÂ SkyRealisim, RCRN, and Step forums, I am currently in doubt whether or not a combination of mods such as a ENB and RCRN would be compatible or even viable.
On the Skyrealism forum, One of the authors named MTichenor,Â replied this to Darthrevan316 regarding the compatibility with RCRN and SkyRealism
Do NOT use ENB with RCRN. Pick one or the other.
To give you an analogy, using two different post-processing systems (such as ENB and RCRN) is like wear two pairs of prescription glasses. Wearing one or the other will make things look better, but if you wear both at the same time, you can't see s***.
If you want some help figuring out which one to use...
Here's the rundown on RCRN: They have a fancy web page filled with awesome graphics and lots of buzz-words, and a custom installer. They use the Creation Kit to tweak the imagespaces in Skyrim and add a standard FXAA post-process that can be found by Googling "FXAA". It has 3 different presets, all of which are very well done. RCRN is like Macintosh; Pretty packaging, lots of buzz words, and a loyal fan-base of people who can't figure out how to do it themselves and are easily impressed.
Here's the rundown on ENB: It's a custom piece of software written by Boris Vorontsov, and uses custom programmed DirectX DLL file to run custom shader code, and change literally every aspect of the rendering system through an INI file with literally hundreds of different settings that you can tweak yourself. It's difficult to use, requiring manual installation and tweaking of several Skyrim INI file settings, and requires a User Manual to figure out what all the settings mean. ENB Evolved has some highly sophisticated custom Depth of Field and HSV color correction algorithms (written by me) which you can change to suit your tastes as well. ENB Evolved has 11 different presets, and ENB in general has 300+ different variants found on SkyrimNexus alone. ENB is like Linux; Custom software designed for experts who want to change everything to make it perfectly suited to their own tastes. "
On the ENB Visual Comparision topic on Step
Besidilo stated " RLwC, CoT, and RCRN should not be mixed unless the user is attempting to play around with a lot of unknowns."
So my question is, from the information that I have gathered from these post, would you also advise myself to only choose one or the other and not combine them both?
Is there truly a incompatibility with combining these mods together that it might cause lighting issues such as a blinding snow effect that I have heard from others?
I know Compiler has a mod called RCRN Plus that includes both, but It seems most of the authors of enbs/rcrn all advise its users to not combine them.
What are your thoughts on the matter?
