Can't seem to get rid of what I think is screen tearing

Question

Hi all!

 

I've been having some problems which I think is screen tearing, but I'm not positive what screen tearing is (but I've been told this issue is screen tearing). What happens is some kind of "lag" when I strafe, or when I walk around looking downward or upward, both in 1st and 3rd person. It's as if something is pushing on my screen, not wanting me to turn.

I have tried to enable and disable the two kind of V-sync sources I have located; enblocal.ini and nVidia Inspector/Control Panel. The purpose here was, that not two instances of V-sync should be active simultaneously. This however, didn't change anything. I've tried messing around with the resolution (1920x1080 as standard) and aspect ratio from 16:9 to 16:10 and back. This also, didn't change anything. Then I tried in enblocal.ini to shift ForceBorderlessFullscreen=true. Having Skyrim in windowed fullscreen completly removed the issue, however the cost is a ~20 indoor FPS drop, which is not acceptable. I read that AA can have something to do with it, so I used SSAA at 2x2 in Inspector, but this was also to no avail. 

 

Not being a genius on technical issues, I've exhausted my knowledge trying to fix this, and I've searched around, not being able to find an answer.

 

Mods vise I should note, that I've followed STEP:Extended (a complete install of guide 2.2.9., in that order) and then I have some non-STEP mods as well, however I can't imagine a mod doing this.

Any help regarding this would be greatly appreciated!

 

~Sincerely

Halde

You are a wonderful person! When you suggested stutter and looking at memory settings, I checked the ENBoost guide from STEP. It said that this; ReservedMemorySizeMb=512 

should be as low as possible  without causing stutter. I had it at 512, and tried changing it to 256, which completly solved the issue. Also, at least indoor, it didn't cause any DPS loss (not that it should, I have no idea)

 

Thank you!

This doesn't sound like screen tearing. Screen tearing will be visible as jumpy frames, with half the frame from one image and half of another, and lines and such like, to briefly explain.

 

What you're experiencing sounds like what we typically call stutter. You pretty much just need to tweak your game config to death to put it to death, generally speaking. What are your specs? What is your enblocal? The memory settings are the first thing to adjust for this typically.
