Skyrim gets all the lovin' when it comes to ENB

Question

As I have mentioned a few times around the traps, I'm currently installing the Clear & Present Danger guide in Fallout 3, excellent as it is, thanks Kelmych.

 

Today I went looking for a suitable ENB to go with Realistic Interiors. I ended up with Brave New Wasteland and I am now trying to finetune it to work. I unfortunately have an issue where the blues in the sky are now black, sort of like that David Bowie video, Ashes to Ashes. So I came over here to scour the guides to see what it might be and it dawned on me, 99% of the instructions and posts are for Skyrim, practically nothing for Fallout3/NV or Oblivion.

 

Does no-one that plays those games have an ENB, or at least issues with them? Couldn't there be some more, less specific, instruction about setting up these tools? (to be fair the guides are extremely good, it is easy to see the same ini setting being applied to all the ENBs regardless of the game.) When it comes to changing the launcher settings though you have to assume the same issues apply to the different engines.

 

Any thoughts? Recommendations to fix the issue or choose another preset?

I would suggest looking at Ceratotherium ENB. I use it and it was an absolute snack to get working. The same author has made a couple of New Vegas and Skyrim presets as well, and it quite approachable in my experience.

Thanks Nozzer66. Strangely the first time I installed this one, your recommendation, I couldn't toggle it on/off. It looked like it wasn't on so I exited and stripped it out and tried the first one again. This time the black skies were fixed but there is an enormous FPS hit on my machine, from 60 down to 11 or 12 outside. Not good, and it had a soft focus look to it that I didn't see in the images on the site, so back to your suggestion.

Now it is working fine. Still a hit to my FPS but nothing like the 75% reduction from the other. Also I can toggle it to check so something screwy was going on.

 

I think I will go with this for a while unless something phenomenal comes along.

 

Still, on my original post, there is a lack of good non-Skyrim ENB suggestions and guides around.

I asked a while ago if anyone wanted to make an ENB subpage for the Fallout 3 guide, but noone has signed up for this; perhaps you would like to do so. There have been several suggestions in the Feedback thread including:

 

Samsara ENB  (Ghostwise)

Midhras' ENB  (Nozzer66)

ENB of the Apocalypse  (Brainfever)

 

Some of the suggestions for FNV ENBs might also work well in FO3.

That sounds like a good idea since there is also a lot of Skyrim ENB information that is relevant to the Fallout games. I'll put a pointer to that forum in the FO3 guide.

Didn't know about the ENB subpage suggestions, must have been before my time. Sure I'll help, though when it comes to ENBs I am as raw as they come. Keep in mind I was involved with the CivV scene for years and only came over to Skyrim and STEP a few months ago, didn't even know ENBs existed.

I've added the Skyrim, Fallout 3, and Fallout NV tags to the Post Processor forum. They should be available for selection now in that forum.
