This pack concept is simple.   

Utilities - It should be a collection of useful modding utilities geared mostly toward troubleshooting, benchmarking, optimizing settings, and NOT mod creation. Current list of ideas:  

Find It: Mfg Console - Skyrim Search Plugin - STATUS  

Fix It: Save game script cleaner  

Report It: ConSkrybe Memory Blocks Log  

See It: Skyrim -Elys- MemInfo  

Optimize It: FPS Limiter - Borderless Window - NVIDIA OPTIMUS D3D9 DLL FIX  

This, of course, is just a quick list I threw together. Please add any comments/suggestions.

Fps limiter/borderless window are pointless. ENB has those things built into it and everyone should be using an ENB for enboost. Replace save game script cleaner with script scalpel (much more helpful/ a lot more in it). Not much point in mem blocks log. SKSE works as long as you have Skyrim running through steam. The find it utilities are pretty helpful though. At least the search plugin. Definitely some useful utilities in this list but probably best not to include them in step/step packs because people will expect tutorials and some of these utilities can be quite tricky

Maybe I didn't make it clear, but this is a "pick and choose" type pack. FPS Limiter is good for people who don't use ENB. Borderless Window is good for people who don't use ENB. Mem Blocks Log is important for troubleshooting to make sure your crash didn't result from a lack of memory given. Haven't looked at script scalpel, although I've seen it.

Why wouldn't you use ENB? Its pretty much necessary in any modded skyrim with texture mods. You don't even need the graphical portion of it.

I would tend to agree with you, but sometimes, if people are telling me rightly, there are genuine reasons not to do so.

All you need ENB for is the boost features, and the Parallax fixes if you want to use Parallax mods, all of which can be done without the post-processing functions. Everything else is eye candy and therefore personal choice

I would suggest that you add this to "find it" as it may prove useful.

Finally got around to adding instructions and tidying up this pack. Updated version to 1.0 to reflect that.

Dude amazing! Thanks so much for this pack as these tools are invaluable. I think this pack should be linked at the bottom of the official STEP guide, not as an addition to CORE or EXTENDED but to direct users to these tools for troubleshooting. A great place would be under the Troubleshooting or In-Game tips section. This pack has been here for a while, I've reserched many packs..nevre noticed this one until now. INVALUABLE!

 

Check this out. I used the FPS limiter you have in your pack just for the hell of it. Even though it said only for the powerful AMD cards, I have a R7 200 series, shitty I know but wth. Turns out I've gained an even more stable FPS with an increased average of 12-15. This is a god-send don't know how I lived without it. I use ENBoost, but do not use any presets. I renamed the d3d9 file and it worked great. Apparently and now obviously (to me) the enblocal.INI setting for FPS limiter does not work. I've tested with and without and see no noticeable difference...maybe 5 FPS. I set it to false and install FPS limiter and I'm very pleased.

 

Quick question though. Can you only have two d3d9 files? Can I add more d3d9 files changing the ENBoost INI to always read the last? Or is this only a one time deal?

 

Anyways thanks for your hard work. The pack is dope. Also the Elys meminfo is also handy as hell. I've been using Skyrim Performance moniter and this seems much better. Not sure if it logs the info though. Going to test it and find out. If it does great, all I'll be missing is the cool graph SPM spits out. :D

I know of no way to use more than 2 d3d9.dll files, although I, much like you, have wished for that ability.

 

And thanks for your kind words. :unworthy:

I decided to get rid of versioning on this Pack, since it really doesn't make sense for it to have a version, since it is a perfectly fluid list of utilities.

 

Added in a few utilities here and there. Since I now have a 21:9 AR monitor, I added Flawless Widescreen to the mix.

According to a quick internet search, leading to a post on ENBseries forums yes you can, this is the information I have found Using 3 dll files

      The Return Of The White Wolf: Witcher 3 Modding Guide
      by rootsrat
      Wiki Link



      RETURN OF THE WHITE WOLF
      THE MODDING GUIDE
       This guide's main aim is to make the game a better experience, improving all of the game aspects to make it more challenging and realistic, better scaled and prettier to play, while remaining friendly to The Witcher universe lore, including the previous games and the books. This part is very important to me, so you can rest assured that if you follow this guide, you'll get The Witcher experience as close to the books as possible and the one that will be realistic and serious. Please be aware of your hardware limitations. If you are struggling to get the game running on Ultra/Uber details, you'll probably want to skip the configuration file modifications. The guide will be updated with new mods and better tools as they are released, so expect a lot of changes until all the basic tools are released and modding scene for Witcher 3 matures. The game itself is also being updated and the developers are working on the bugs, with the updates being released every so often, so please also bear in mind that the guide is written for the specific version of the game and may not work with the future versions of The Witcher 3. I will make clear indication which game version is the guide for. Another thing to note is that I am using GOG Galaxy version of The Witcher 3, not the Steam version, so adjust all the file paths accordingly if you use Steam instead of GOG Galaxy. The guide is using step-by-method to instruct users how to install the mods. It's listed from top down and it is advised to install the mods in that order to make sure that all directions are followed correctly and no steps are missed.
