Problems Setting an FPS Cap in Dxtory


I've long suffered from the micro-stutter/input lag issue. I've been experimenting with many of the various solutions out there. I've tried enabling VSync via the game, graphics card, and enblocal.ini. Each results in varying degrees of input lag and screen tearing. 


The perfect solution I've come up with is enabling VSync in enblocal.ini and limiting my FPS to 60 with Dxtory. The only problem is that running Dxtory will cause Skyrim to CTD when Alt+Tabbing, which I do frequently. I can resolve the issue with ENB's borderless window option, but that kills my performance. 


Any idea on why Dxtory causes this issue? I've tried setting an FPS cap using enblocal.ini and via the nVidia Inspector, but neither of those eliminated input lag like Dxtory did. Is there perhaps other software that uses the same mechanism as Dxtory?

What model graphics card do you have? If it's a newer model Nvidia desktop GPU then you ought to be capable of running Shadowplay, you'd have to record audio separately of course.

Sorry for not completely clarifying what I'm trying to do. I'm only trying to set an FPS limit. Dxtory has been the only software thus far that limits my FPS and simultaneously reduces input lag.


FPS Limiter on Nexus, nVidia Inspector, and ENB's FPS limiter did not work for me.


I've figured out that running Dxtory and ENBoost at the same time result in CTDs when you Alt+Tab out of the game. Looks like there's no way around it.

      So I've noticed that rain drops appear black when falling over certain terrain backgrounds. From my own research, I can see that this is somewhat common, and people have said to install weather mods to fix this. The only thing is that I am using Snapdragon ENB, and the author says its incompatible with other weather mods. Is there a way to prevent the rain from looking black without installing other weather mods? I love this ENB, so I am hoping I wont have to find another one. I also don't want to just entirely disable rain in ENB.

      Download ENB Light 0.98 Alpha 2 and install with the following options ... NOTE: need to test these options against mods that they may overwrite (e.g., Leanwolf's, Embers XD, et.). Check conflicts to determine what files to hide when testing.

      STEP does not recommend downloading the Skyrim Nexus version of ENBoost due to incorrect settings for STEP.
      Grab the latest binary from ENB Dev: https://enbdev.com/download_mod_tesskyrim.html
      Boris's VRAMSizeTest Tool for ENBoost: https://enbdev.com/download_vramsizetest.html
      For Skyrim run the DX9 version. For Windows 7, subtract 170 from the value the tool gives. For Windows 8/10, subtract 305 from the value the tool gives. Set VideoMemorySizeMb in the "Enblocal.ini" file to the resulting value.

      Looks like Boris has pretty much figured out his memory fix and released it on the nexus. I believe you still need ENB and then the file on the nexus is an extra INI that is dependent on your videocard.
