Is this behavior of the in-game brightness expected?

Recommended Posts


Not too long ago I modded my game after following the current STEP guide for SSE. After that, over time I added a few more mods not included in the guide and one of the ENB presets suggested in the guide for Cathedral Weathers, namely A Cathedralist's ENB. I downloaded and installed the high-quality main file from here: https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/25296?tab=files . I have been playing the game during weeks without game-breaking issues and the ENB has been working fine.

Very recently, however, I have noticed that the brightness output level in-game has suddenly shrunk. I have started to see things darker while I am playing. I play in exclusive fullscreen mode. However, any changes in the in-game brightness slider do nothing while I am playing. But if I quit to the main menu, there the previously adjusted brightness level is apparent. In other words, any changes made to the in-game brightness only reflect themselves while in the main menu, not while I am playing. Is that normal? Does it happen because I have installed ENB 0.462 and the aforementioned preset? Of course, I can always adjust the brightness levels in the in-game ENB menus. But it puzzles me that any changes made to the vanilla brightness slider only are apparent once I quit to the main menu of the game.

Thank you for reading me.

Try using Shift + F12 to toggle ENB off/on in game. I think Shift + Enter allows you to set values. This all may help you to determine if ENB is causing this and settings that may be impacting (see the main settings up front with the checkboxes a sa first measure).

Hey, z929669. I knew how to enter the ENB configuration in game (Shift + Enter), but I did not know that I could toggle the whole thing on and off. For your information, effectively, after toggling the ENB off, the game's brightness controls have started to work normally again in my game. So it is the ENB that is somehow interfering with the game brightness. Thank you very much for your help.

      Labyrinthian Shalidor's Maze Fixes by wSkeever

      This fixes a bunch of small layout glitches by repositioning objects and replacing meshes in the Shalidor's Maze area, and it adds sunlight.
      Install: if used with Assorted Mesh Fixes, they should overwrite it. There is an ESL plugin, which must be enabled.
      Conflicts: there is a minor conflict with Atlas Map Markers, which AMM wins using LOOT. It must be patched if sunlight is desired (see below). Otherwise no conflict with the current WIP STEP setup as far as I can tell.
      Before > After of one of the more noticeable fixes:

      Before > After of sunlight and shadows - only works if conflict with AMM is resolved:

      Security Overhaul SKSE - Lock Variations by powerofthree

      SKSE file that turns the default lock into different kinds based on what you're opening; Dwemer, Falmer, Snow Elf, Apocrypha, and snowy chests/doors. Looking at it I feel like I might actually manually open locks now instead of using autopick, haha. There's even an addon already which adds even more, including locks from other mods like VIGILANT.

      Hello so I am brand new to all of this and I have been having TWO issues with DynDOLOD, I have searched for quite a while and have no found a sufficient fix to my problem so I thought I would ask here.

      I keep getting the message when I enter the game "DynDOLOD requires PapyrusUtil" I have already downloaded Papy and there are a few things I have done myself to try and work around the issue.
      - re-downloaded Papyrus
      - re-downloaded DynDOLOD 
      Now I know these are obvious and basic things to list but I wanted to list them anyway for reference.

      Now the second issue which I am almost certain is linked to the first problem I get TWO messages that read 
      "DynDOLOD can not find Tamriel in DynDOLOD_Worlds"
      "DynDOLOD can not find master data in None"

      The issue seem pretty specific on where the problem lies but since I am new to modding I do not want to go around messing with my files and then accidently mess up my mod list, So instead I decided to ask for help here before I go scrounging around.

      Normally I would brush these two things off because DynDOLOD is actually working in my game, It fixed my tree textures and none of my textures/meshes are broken as far as I can tell. The only reason I am trying to fix this issue is that every 5 Seconds those two messages are spammed in the corner of my screen and it is irritating to watch. 

      I have linked both pictures of the messages.

      I would appreciate any help or info on this! Thank you!
