z-fighting fix...help



I had noticed about 20 hours into my game I was starting to get the shimmering mountains etc....ie the z-fighting.

In my last playthrough, over 100 hours before I changed my mod selection and reinstalled STEP, I never had it. this playthough I went for the

less intensive Baseline step-basically installed wherever possible the 1024 textures instead of 2048. Over 20 hours in and the Z seems to have appeared?


Anyway I applied the fix as mentioned here: https://forum.step-project.com/showthread.php?tid=154&pid=2744#pid2744


Although it improved it a lot, it made the rest of the terrain really sluggish and bare. So I had made copies of my

skyrimprefs.ini and skyrim.ini and installed them back into Skyrim folder under My Games.......and now the game wont startup.

Can anyone help or advise how to get my game running again.

Sigh tried that, then modified the files as per STEP intro but didn't work.

I knew this would happen, I shouldn't have done it.


Edit: Warning to all those who want to finish a modded game.

Once you have a working Skyrim game that's successfully modded....don't fk with it.

Have you made a saveini command on the console? You need to run skyrim through the steam launcher after you deleted both inis and the rendererinfo txt. Also if you have increased ugrids you need to set the same ugrids value again or your saves won't load.
