Random CTD only with ENB enabled


Hello, long time modder here with a problem I can't figure out.  I follow Lexy's LOTD for the most part with a good sprinkle of my own choices mixed in, ample PC specs (GTX 1080 TI), and I use NVT ENB with Obsidian weathers.  Game runs beautifully if ENB is simply disabled via shift-F12.  The instant I turn it on, it starts randomly crashing and seems to become more and more common as I play to the point that it is unplayable.  I had this on a build a couple of years back and switched ENBs and it oddly fixed it, not working this time though.  Have cleanly deleted and re-installed all ENB files, tried to troubleshoot any odd settings/mod interactions/ini files, etc.  Seems very odd as I have searched many sources and can't find any mention of similar problems from other people.


To be clear, it runs perfectly fine with ENB installed...just not when ENB is enabled.  I know this isn't an oft visited section of the forum but any ideas or pointers from anyone?

Well, in case anyone else ever comes across this problem, I think I have figured it out.


Skylighting + Cloudshadows disabled = no crashes.  Both of them enabled = CTD within 2-3 minutes, every single time I tested it.  No idea why, might be unique to my set up (Obsidian weathers, various ENBs with the same results, loads of other mods but mostly the same as Lexy's LOTD), maybe I screwed something up with conflict resolution, I don't know.  Whatever the case, it works with those two options disabled.

      EmbersXD seems to have built in compatibility for its meshes so ENB Light should not overwrite them (will need to hide or not install this meshes) Battle Ready Candlelight Fixes is completely overwritten by this mod (so hide these as well)

      so I eventually reached the point I just submitted to my computer.
      Somehow ENB does 100%ly not work with my pc, at least not this way.
      I followed the instructions as far as there were any.
      -> deinstalled every lighting mod I had active and dynavision.
      -> installed the newest ENB 0.112 or sth like that. Used the injector version.
      -> installed superb ENB RL for testing's sake.
      -> loaded up a new game from an inside location and everything seemed alright (although some really bright surfaces) until I exited the room to outside...
      -> OMFG! what the hell has happened to skyrim. EVERYTHING is flashing madly. I can't even explain how bad it is. Just imagine every structure blinking on your screen. And, of course I only got 25 FPS. Well that ain't the problem. I rather had a problem with reasoning why everything kept flashing...
      Has anyone encountered similar problems?
      I'm kinda freaked out right now...

      Here's a SS of when I use ENB with any one of the popular settings (or just plain ENB without any custom preset):

      Don't think this is what ENB is supposed to look like from the pictures.
      Using the latest ENB (.112), tried using several popular mods, and ENB settings by default. All were wierdly bright. I love RCRN, but I can't use SMAA with it. (much less of system impact, and I just enjoy SMAA for some reason)
