Version-specific Recommendations must use a Version string equal to that of both ModList and Guide!Copy/paste the intended guide version from the "Existing Guides" table above (if it exists) into the field below.Editors: Please DO NOT use wiki headings inside of custom Recommendations and also avoid using templates if at all possible! Template calls add to the max threshold, and headings mess up the guide ToC.

Recommendations

As stated in the mod's Description, this mod will stabilize the display of rendered content for smooth gameplay without limiting frame rates, and this should be the case for almost all modern PCs running SSE.

  1. Download the Main File and and High performance configuration Optional File.
  2. Install the Main File first. Then install the Optional File, choosing Merge to merge it into the Main File.
  3. (ONLY if hardware supports) Enable NVIDIA G-SYNC or AMD Freesync via the display software
    • Also enable NVIDIA Low Latency (reference image) or AMD anti-lag via the display software
  4. Double-click on the mod in the MO left pane and ensure the following in SSEDisplayTweaks.ini
    • PC has NVIDIA G-SYNC or AMD Freesync video card AND monitor support, set each frame limit (FPS cap) to:
      [monitor refresh rate] - 3 (e.g., 144 Hz monitor should have 141 limit: 144 - 3 = 141)
    • PC does NOT have NVIDIA G-SYNC or AMD Freesync video card OR monitor support, set each frame limit (FPS cap) to:
      [monitor refresh rate] - 1 (e.g., 60 Hz monitor should have 59 limit: 60 - 1 = 59)

[Render] FramerateLimit=?? UIFramerateLimit=?? [OSD] Enable=true InitiallyOn=false

To enabled the framerate counter, hold Left Shift and press Insert. Repeat to disable again.


NOTE: No further configuration is required, but read on for additional information.



For more general information, see the SSE Display Settings guide.

Advanced Configuration

Per best practice for any mod governed by a mod INI file, create a custom INI with only those settings that are useful to change for testing purposes (i.e., this mod in Performance Tuning). Doing so will preserve these settings without disrupting the defaults in the mods configuration file when the mod is updated. All settings being tested can be configured here and simply commented to revert to defaults. This will also allow modification without losing any changes introduced by the developer. Activate/deactivate this mod as necessary:

  1. Click on the MOlistoptions.png button and select, [Create empty mod].
  2. Name it (Custom INI) SSE Display Tweaks.
    • This places the new, empty mod at the bottom of the mod list.
  3. Enable and prioritize (Custom INI) SSE Display Tweaks in the MO left pane just after this mod.
  4. Open the (Custom INI) SSE Display Tweaks in Windows Explorer (Ctrl + double-click).
  5. Create a new folder named SKSE and open it.
  6. Create a new folder named Plugins and open it.
  7. Create a new file, SSEDisplayTweaks_Custom.ini, add the following, then save the file.
