ENB Limiter Question


Im not sure but the guide says one thing about the limiter feature and GamerPoets says another. I would like to find out if I should enable it or disable it. Note: i force v-sync in nvidia Inspector and I use Vividian ENB.


From STEP ENB guide:



20px-Info-Logo.png      Notice:Limiting FPS is neither necessary nor recommended when vertical sync (vsync) is enabled under [ENGINE], since vsync inherently limits FPS to the monitor refresh rate or lower.

Enables/disables upper limit to frames per second (FPS) the specified integer. This feature is useful to control some performance issues such as lagging, crashes, freezes, stuttering, and physics issues which are present at high frame rates. The limiter can be turned on and off in-game by pressing Shift+Home (by default, but shortcut keys can also be customized under [iNPUT]). Enabling the limiter with older versions of ENBSeries could also increase load times; however, since version 0.265 the FPS Limiter has been forced to 60FPS on loading screens to help eliminate this issue.

20px-Info-Logo.png      Notice:Some users have reported enabling the limiter causes extremely low FPS (5-15FPS) regardless of what the FPSLimit parameter is set to. Other users have reported the ENBSeries FPS Limiter not working at all. In these cases, the video card limiter in the video card settings might be more stable.



GamerPoets mentions: Tutorials - Vividian ENB : Mod Organizer




Please listen to his instructions given. Is this tweak still relevant at this time for the havok engine? Thank you.

I would have to test it out. Though GP is very thorough, I never say one way or another unless I've tested out the claims for myself. I will say that if limit the FPS, then there is no reason to use vsync. I might be able to test this out in a bit.

So I've ran around testing this, shooting every material I could in sight (including hay bails and stacks) and the arrows stuck into everything I shot at. So that test came up with no difference on my end. However, the general advice is still good. You never want to run over 60FPS due to the havok engine. Those that need to limit this are users that have 120/144Hz monitors which vsync will push the game past the 60FPS mark. These users do, without a doubt, need to use the limiter.

      I use the STEP ENB (light) and which looks good and works well 99.9% of the time. But sometimes, when I move from an indoor cell into Skyrim, the graphics turn dark blue (during the day)  or black (at night). What I mean is, I can barely see the surroundings and lights are slightly more visible, but the screen is mostly a uniform blue or black color? This makes it impossible to see when you are going. Most of the time this is solved by going back indoors then back out. Yesterday however, I had to reload a save (not an autosave) to get it to turn normal again, losing progress.
      I haven't been able to reproduce this nor does it happen very often. I am just wondering if someone else is experiencing this and what could possibly be the cause? I know next to nothing about ENBs, so I am unable to troubleshoot this myself. I also forgot to take a screenshot of it. I will add one when/if it happens again.

      So I'm having this issue where ENB seams to break the "seamless" horizon provided by cathedral weathers. Doesn't seem to matter what ENB I use, no conflicts in Xedit however I have read on a few forums (STEP) that this issue seems to be present no matter what and the more detailed rendering offered by ENB can make this issue more noticeable. Also this definitely seems more prominent during dawn/dusk nor really visible during other times. I'm not sure if it's really a mod issue, or if it's just another one of those fugly bethesda seams that we all inevitably see. ENB doesn't seem to matter I always notice this on clear dawn/dusks. Any input or advice would be appreciated. (Issue is easier to see in game than in screenshots) Here's  a link to a post I made on LL with screenshots. https://www.loverslab.com/topic/182711-skyrim-se-enbs-and-sky-mesh-issue/#comment-3631259
