CTD on Startup with EnBoost

Question

On an un-modded, or modded setup I get immediate CTD after installing EnBoost.  If I remove it, everything's fine again.

 

I don't even make it to the menu - the screen goes black (like in a typical startup), the blue wait cursor hangs around a bit, and then I'm dumped back on my desktop.

 

I'm using .266, followed the guide to install it, no presets installed.

 

System:

i7 3470QM @ 2.7GHz

8  GB Ram

nVidia GeForce 670MX (plus Intel HD Graphics 4000, disabled for Skyrim)

 

I'd really like to be able to use a preset, any help in fixing this would be greatly appreciated =)

Interesting. Sounds a lot like my laptop. I have a G75VX. Never had that issue before, have you tried ENB Binary .265? I recall some issues with .266.

I haven't, I'll give that a try.  Thanks!

 

Mine is a Malibal laptop, and I love it!


There only seems to be a link to .262, would that one be ok?

take a look at this, especially look at the post by keith.

 

Generally, you should use the latest binary.

Thanks for the reply, but I don't think my problem is memory related - after installing memory blocks log, the last number listed in the 512 column is 85, and 32 in the second column.

 

I'm crashing before I even get to the menu, but only when enbhost.exe, d3d9.dll, and enblocal.ini are in my <Skyrim> directory.  I've been using the latest (.266), but phazer suggested trying .265, which I can't find.

Well there must be something wrong with either the settings in the ini file or with the whole setup (dual GPU notebooks are usually a recipe for trouble).

Why don't you post the inis?

enblocal.ini is the default one the download came with.

 

Any idea why dual GPUs would cause an issue?

 

attachicon.gifskyrim.ini

attachicon.gifskyrimprefs.ini

attachicon.gifenblocal.ini

They seem to generally suck. I bought my wife an Acer Aspire which looked good on paper, 2 gig dedicated graphics, but it struggles to hold 15 fps in Vanilla Skyrim. I really should have done more research before buying it.

 

If only I could talk her into using a desktop...

If you want to make absolutely certain the integrated GPU isn't used, disable it in BIOS - if it's even possible. This has just reminded me not to ever again in my life touch anything made by HP. I still feel guilty for making my father in law buy that horrible Pavilion brick they never ever released updated graphic driver for.

 

...otherwise, I think there are settings available in ENB to force using specific GPU. Perhaps the fact that you're using default ini has something to do with the problem?

I've never had any problems with mine - I just use the control panel to set it to always use the nVidia card when certain programs are running.

Seems like Nvidia/Intel are easier to control than AMD. With the AMD dual graphics the only option in the control panel is to force it to use the APU or APU+GPU. I'll need to take a look in the bios. Failing that I'll dig through the ENB documentation for some help.

 

Sorry for slightly derailing the thread, thanks for the advice.

That appears to have been it!  Must've skipped that step this time.  Going to try installing a preset and check if it's still working.

      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

      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.
