Combining Sys RAM+VRAM in enblocal.ini

Question

Thought I'd make a thread for this question if anyone is stuck as I am and needs a bit of handholding to the destination.

 

I'm at the part where I'm editing the enblocal.ini files. On [MEMORY], It tells me to add up both my VRAM and System RAM together, then It said if I do it wrong, I can harm my PC or something along that line. Here's what I know I have and please let me know if I got this part wrong:

 

System RAM: 4GB

Video RAM: 1024mb

 

So total would be 5024, correct?

VideoMemorySizeMb=5024, and my PC shouldn't get stressed out and melt on me, right right?

 

Also when I'm running the Skyrim Performance Monitor, on top where it says VRAM, it should be using about 5gbs, right? In the past, I've only seen go to 1gb, which makes me sad, because I wasn't able to running any good texture mods, but whatever, I'm here for the questing. Thanks for all your hard work, everyone :)

 

*Off-topic: I noticed something minor missing on the guide, the last part that explains how to create a TES5edit backup folder after cleaning the first file, update.esm*

With only 4Gb of memory one can question if you should even be using Enboost at all. 

 

You would most likely not be able to exceed the 3.1Gb before windows says to complain about running out of memory... and as such it decided to terminate the process. 

 

And the VRAM counter should only ever be able to go to your physical amount of VRAM. 

 

Enboost does not provide more VRAM..it only creates another process that textures can be offloaded onto so the game does not crash at 3.1Gb use. Basically anyways.

I'm going to echo Aiyen here. You'll be better off using Vanilla Reduced Textures and/or Gamwich's low resolution texture packs. I'd also recommend getting more RAM and VRAM because you're not going to be able to play much with that.

Okay I see. So remove enboost? I'd like to hold on to it for the v-sync, windowed, and frame rate limiter options. All-in-one for me.

 

If you guys think I can hold on to enboost with no issues, do I leave "VideoMemorySizeMb=" blank and enable "AutodetectVideoMemorySize="?

 

I don't wanna double post, hope you guys haven't forgotten about me.

      ENB Light by 4109

      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.

      EmbersXD seems to have built in compatibility for its meshes so ENB Light should not overwrite them (will need to hide or not install this meshes) Battle Ready Candlelight Fixes is completely overwritten by this mod

      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.

      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.
