Windows 8.1 and ENB

Question

Took the plunge and updated to Windows 8.1 on my machine. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to play nice with ENB. I am also running the Nvidia R331 Game Ready Driver (For BF4).

 

Symptoms:

   Random stutter (fps spikes downward momentarily) and sound corruption. Does not occur with ENB disabled.

 

Anyone else getting this?

Wanted to post another update here. Nvidia released yet another R331 driver on 28 October which resolved this problem. That was fast.

I can only just imagine what Boris will say if you report it on his forums hehehe.

 

Also is this with or without SLI enabled :P (Seems to be a reoccurring issue with you :P )

 

Since that would always be my first suggestion.

After some troubleshooting with Aiyen it appears to be an ENB / Nvidia R331 driver issue. For now I will use the old driver, but unfortunately on Tuesday I will be forced to R331 for BF4... hopefully someone will have reported this to Boris by then for a fix. I'd rather jump into a pit of vipers than try to report something on Boris forum... lol.

It is the WHQL version of 331 if I'm not mistaken, so everyone should probably update. I have really good performance with almost all games using it. Though I get that stupid sun going through walls bug from ENB again bacause I never do clean installs of graphics drivers.

Another update.

 

331.65 - Bad

331.58 - Bad

331.40 - OK

 

At least for SLI mode - doing OK without SLI on all versions. I have posted over on the geforce forums, looks like many games are affected.

I'm seriously considering reverting back to Windows 7 or Windows 8. (not 8.1) I've had nothing but odd issues since I've updated to 8.1

  • Pixelation in still images
  • Pixelation in videos (both online flash videos and offline ripped videos in VLC)
  • Odd "scan lines" in online flash videos
  • Several video driver crashes (not since I've updated to latest driver though)
None of these issues I had before updating.

 

EDIT:

Spoke to soon...video drivers just crashed again.

Actually, I'm using Intel HD Graphics on my Windows 8.1 and my graphics driver keeps crashing too, so I think that is a OS problem. I dual-boot, so that solves a multitude of problems.

I would strongly advise people to hold off on applying major Microsoft updates as soon as they are released, at least not your primary box - it's just volunteering to an MS bug detector. If the update is really worth it, I would always perform a fresh build from updated installation media.

As I recall there where 3 OS related updates in total for the entire live spawn of Windows 7 to 8.1 that gave some gamers issues.

So I have to disagree with your advise, at least security updates should always be installed upon release.

Optional updates should always be reviewed.

 

Running on a fully updated Windows 8.1 Pro x64 here and no issues at all.

 

I hope everyone with issues has Windows automatic driver installation and update disabled.

      Heyas,
      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
