Does anybody know why enb.272 is not compatible with STEP extended?

Question

I had STEP extended running with enb v.269 and it looked pretty good....I replaced enb with v.272 to see if it made a difference and I wiped out the game.....It started with a bunch of colored triangles of various sizes......If it's not compatible  with Skyrim why is it shown as the newest enb version for Skyrim? or is this just an over sight?

I think you should look over your .ini files to make sure you have the correct settings in them.  Maybe you didn't set things right.  It's easy to mess those .inis up by accident or by not noticing something that should be set differently.

Are you sure you installed the new version properly?  Remember that if you overwrote your old installation directory with the files from the new version that you will have to make sure you re-configure your enb .ini file(s).  If you simply use ENBoost, it will only require modifying enblocal.ini again, but if you use an ENB you may have to remodify more than that.

Any issues with various ENB versions are almost always a result of either drivers, or other 3rd party software at the users end. If a wide spread issue was present with any given version it would have been reported en mass at the ENB forums. So far nobody have reported any such issues. 

 

If you can eliminate that drivers or 3rd party issues are to blame then you can make a report of your findings over there. Also make sure to try with just the default files first, and then add a preset afterwards.

The game was running fine and for some 'stupid reason' I saw V272....I only installed the d3d9 dll, enbhost,and the enblocal files which I had already made the required changes to......

For some reason ....now I cant even revert back to the V269 I get the same triangular colored forms and large blocks of color........Is there something else that go changed when I upgraded to V272 that doesn't get removed or overwritten when I revert back to V269?

 

I vaguely remember looking at my game files and seeing a d3d9_34.dll file, but it's not there now. Are there 2 d3d9 files in the game?

There are not - but graphical anomalies like what you describe sound more to me like an impending problem with the card itself, especially since reverting back to the older version didn't fix your problem. I'm running the latest on a modifued version of Extended with no issues (other than occassional CTDs... Oh, Skyrim, how I love thee...). How old is your current card, and what type is it?

Actually, I'm been noticing several posts about issues with v.272. Right now it's just a feature update that can be skipped so don't updated unless you're a screen archer.

I hope it's not the card, but I know what you mean when you say it seems like a card going.....I's an HD7970 not even 2 years old.   what has me confused is if it's a glitch with V272 why won't deleting everything ENB.272 and installing the d3d9 dll ,enb host and the customized enb local set everything back to the way it was......I hate to cry like a baby but I had a real good game going..Dogonit.

      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

      ENBoost by Boris Vorontsov
      Wiki Link

      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.
      CTD and Performance patch ENBoost by Boris Vorontsov

      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.
