I tried using borderless window. I've even tried to use safety load but it's not helping. So I'd like to know if I could use enboost to increase performance but I don't want to use any enb. I have gtx and 8 gb ram I have some texture mods like HD Skyrim but I use lite version, some texture mods for characters nothing like CBBE or some plastic doll stuff.
I have mods like frostfall, vivid weather, PerMa etc. Last edited by RED ; 17 Apr, am. Showing 1 - 7 of 7 comments. Ilja View Profile View Posts. ENB is a binary pack from enbdev.
When you speak about "any enb", you will need to understand that you are likely speaking about preset configurations that are made for the game and shared in sites like Nexus. You only need the ENB binary pack and - if you wish - can do your own tweaks for it.
There is no need to do that, or to install any performance heavy presets to your game. ENBoost uses enbost. This does not lift the memory limit for Skyrim, but allows your card to use your computer memory to relief the stress, allowing your game to be more stable, avoiding memory spikes and making it less prone to crash from such spikes.
For ENBoost, you will need to install the binary pack from enbdev. After that you will either use premade ENBoost configurations from Nexus, or you can set values yourself. You can also set them yourself. ENBoost S. Last edited by Ilja ; 17 Apr, am. Ok, so ENBosst makes game more satble but it doesn't increase performance? Originally posted by Desetka :. Yes I have steam fps counter and I will try to install ENBoost, but not right now not in the mood for that.
Having a stable game with less memory spikes already increases performance. Seeing how many spikes the vanilla game already throws at you, your game will run smoother than before. Having ENBoost and SKSE memory tweak active are very much reommended, but neither of them really makes the game any less resource hungry.
Fixed memory usage makes the game more pleasant to play, but nothing really eases the performance itself. I played the game with GTXuntil this sping. I had plenty of mods and ENB preset in use.Original forum topic is hereit may be temporary disabled.
This patch will require your first born and a pint of your blood. What bad can happen when Skyrim uses more memory without tripping over itself? Fried Hardware maybe? If anything bad does happen then it is your problem since I already got your firstborn and I do not care.
This information is provided as is. I am sharing it because I am hoping a large part of the community will benefit from it. Take it or leave it. Be sensible about memory use and modding done right in general - refer to S.
The information below helps my! Skyrim with higher ugrids and many mods. For the love of the holy cow make sure to only use well documented and tested ini settings or spend some time testing them thoroughly yourself. If you can not properly verify cause and effect all you do is wasting time. No need to mess with unknown, untested, unproven settings or mindlessly copy and paste made up things that have no effect.
For additional memory add this to the. It has been a while since the first memory patch that fixed 4GB LAA that made it into the official game. Thanks to Boris we have the second memory patch ENBoost taking care of textures not wasting main memory anymore.
In this naming tradition this third memory patch will allow Skyrim to use that available space right from the start to fix ILS infinite loading screen without side effects and other memory related CTD crashes to desktop or freezes. After many hours of peeking and poking it turns out there is a simple fix and one has to wonder why this is not something that is implemented as an option or parameter for the PC version of the game.
When tesv. When the first block gets full, the engine will allocate more blocks. This can cause the known troubles.
Thankfully, by telling the engine to request a bigger block from the start it magically makes use of it without any further ado. This isn't the case with the second block. Thankfully again, the second block does not fill up as quickly and once it is full the engine does not trip over itself when allocating more blocks. To make the engine allocate a larger block of memory it needs to be patched.
This needs to happen very early in the process. This can not be done by a SKSE plugin because they are executed much later. However, SKSE loader already patches tesv. Because of the nature of this patch I will only provide instructions how to do this. I contacted Boris about this and he is doing his own tests and investigations. If this can be part of ENB I do not know.
Best not to waste his time with silly questions.These features are referred to as, ENBoost. These parameters will need to be changed depending on the hardware within individual systems. ENBoost features depend heavily on these values to work correctly. Setting them incorrectly could result in users experiencing additional issues in-game. When running Skyrim with ENB enabled it is highly recommended to close any unnecessary programs running in the background to free up system resources for ENBoost use.
When set to true, this parameter changes some of Skyrim's memory allocation code to cache data at the 'top' of Skyrim's memory space Windows default caches to bottom of memory space. According to Boris, this can reduce memory fragmentation and make better use of Skyrim's available memory, especially when running on bit Windows; Vista or newer. Please read these posts before posting support questions in the forums about this parameter!
Don't be lazy! More of an explanation by Boris can be found here and by keithinhanoi here and here. This parameter will enable the ENBoost features to dramatically reduce CTDs and other issues caused from reaching Skyrim's memory limit. It does this by launching the enbhost.
It is highly recommended to enable and keep this feature enabled! Set to true if ExpandSystemMemoryX64 is enabled see above. This was mainly implemented as a fix for AMD video card users; however, it can also be useful for others. The parameter forces the ENBSeries driver libraries to manage video memory resources for cached textures rather than the video drivers and will ignore more of the errors reported by the video drivers.
If experiencing CTDs even while ENBoost features are enabled, users can try enabling this parameter to see if it resolves helps to confirm video driver issues ; otherwise, it is best to leave it disabled false.
Routinely running Skyrim with this enabled is not recommended. This may cause stuttering since more data must be dynamically loaded into memory during gameplay as the PC looks and moves around. Enabling this parameter could potentially help load a save game which fails to load otherwise.
If this works, users are encouraged to go to a small interior, save the game, and then disable this again before trying to load the problem savegame. If experiencing extended cell load times, before enabling this feature, it is recommended to first try using the " free VRAM " key see [INPUT] section to clean video memory before entering a new location or fast traveling.
Enabling this parameter is generally not safe. When enabled, it does not use memory reallocation, compression, or enbhost. Set to false if ExpandSystemMemoryX64 is enabled see above. This parameter sets the size of a buffer used for swapping geometry and textures between VRAM and system memory.This Guide will help newcomers become familiar with the basics of installing and using ENBSeries, and will also provide answers to many questions applicable to all users.
The main guide is written to address novice and advanced users alike with 'quickstart' in mind. Links to more information and ancillary guides are included. ENBSeries adds digital enhancements to games purely by modifying the video output after 'post' the encoding of game assets into the initial graphical result.
The initial post-processing is done by the game' shader program s. Then ENBSeries builds upon this using more advanced techniques that the game's shader engine is either incapable of or simply doesn't implement itself. This is accomplished by using a custom API in the form of a dynamic link library DLL to add to the game shader engine.
In addition to advanced shader post-processing, ENBSeries also implements a memory manager, called ENBoost, that enhances the efficiency of video memory management. This results in increased performance and stabilization, in addition to the increase quality provided by the post-processing.
Each preset can offer a range of "look and feel", meaning each preset can create a different ambiance for the game it's used for. The combinations are endless and there is likely an ENB preset that is perfect for every users' personal tastes.
However, all those added effects often come at a cost to performance. Luckily, most authors provide "performance" versions of their presets, which are lighter on resources. It's one major part of a multi-part solution Step Modifications recommends for dealing with this limitation on bit games. ENBoost can also be implemented as a stand-alone video-graphics memory manager for the game that it's implemented for, like Skyrim LE.
In order to understand how ENBoost works, it is important to first know how some bit applications manage memory. Skyrim LE will be used for this explanation. This means that although TESV. This cache is then copied to the video card's VRAM to display on the screen. The memory limit is not a problem with an unmodded game because the cached data is dynamically loaded and unloaded to make room for new data as it's needed, and it almost never completely fills up all of TESV. However, when mods are added to Skyrim, the memory needed for cached data is significantly increased, and the more mods that are used, especially higher resolution texture mods, the higher the chance that TESV.
When this happens, either the program crashes or some objects do not get rendered. ENBoost overcomes this memory limitation byOne of the site members, lmstearn, considered my guide good enough to be posted here, and therefore I decided to post it here. Consider this guide as a community effort, and the more feedback, the better for us all.
By following these instructions, you will have the complete Sheson's Skyrim Memory Patch and Boris Vorontsov's ENBoost Combo, which will allow you to have a much more stable Skyrim, even if you have a massive number of Mods installed in it.
Have in mind that ENBoost may not work for everybody, but the Memory Patch should work for most cases. In my personal experience, it helps me to have my modded Skyrim Lots of 3D meshes, textures and scripts, making a total of Mods with plugins and other Mods that don't use any plugins, like re-textures and SKSE pluginsand other users in Nexus Mods have reported to have very good results with it, so you should have at the very least a more stable game. To my surprise, the game loaded the savegame normally instead of crashing to desktop.
Now let's move to the following step. Have in mind that the instructions are mainly aimed to people which have never installed SKSE 1. Otherwise, go to the SKSE folder. The root folder of a game is the folder in which the game Skyrim is installed. In the case of Skyrim. If you have them, consider this instruction done, otherwise, include these exact parameters and values in SKSE.
Finally, change the extension of the document, from. Now your. You shouldn't have any problems if you did everything right. Now, let's move to ENBoost.
You will see several "codes" ordered from up to down that start with the letter v For example, v0. Each one of these "codes" is one of the versions of ENB that are available for download. If you click on any of the versions, you will visit the download page of the version of ENB which you clicked. Don't do anything yet.
It should be the v0. Click on it to go to the download page. Open the WrapperVersion folder, and move the following files to a safe place, and make a backup of them, these files are all you need:. If you want to fully install ENB correctly, please read these S. Also, dptheslothking made a video in which he teaches how to install and configure the Injector Version of ENB, all credits go to him.
If you are one of them, please continue reading this information. You must set the value to false in case your Operating System is of 32 bits. Since this affects most PCs, but not all of themif you feel like activating it, check this S.

Reduced errors of ssil caused by low precision depth. Updated ENBSeries 0. Fixed buggy wet surfaces effect in some places of interiors.
Reduced glitches of wet surfaces effect at first person mode.
Removed pow of 2 restriction for textures resolution loaded from external shaders. Applied glossiness to cubemap enabled wet surfaces SE version have it already. Added wet surfaces and rain wet surfaces. This effect in SE do not have specular map parameters because it's not rasterised like old Skyrim mod have. Increased quality of effect. Improved GenerateGrassNormals feature, but ambient occlusion will look different for it now, because normals are fully applied as quads of each grass mesh.
Partially disabled wet surfaces underwater. Added GenerateGrassNormals parameter to enblocal. Sky no more influence ssil computation.
Removed preshaders complier option, cause it's not working with many customized external shaders. Added wet surfaces effect and it's parameters. Turned on preshaders option for shader compiler by request. Fixed lens effect not tweakable from one of previous updates. New effect is experimental, maybe it will be changed in future. Increased quality of detailed shadows and shadow from point light sources.
Added FieldOfView parameter to shaders the same as old skyrim mod have. Fixed specular on some hair types. As side effect, brows also having specular now. Fixed red screen bug when effect. Forum disabled for unknown time because of bad robot crawler bot trying to scan it. Sorry folks, i can't do anything about this, just wait. Published ENBoost 0. This is test of memory manager requested for Mass Effect games to allow using high resolution texture packs without crashing the game.
At this moment it's limited to handle only DXT textures. I can't do proper testing myself, hope this works. Fixed bug with black flickering water when NAC modification installed for some weathers.
Fixed rain and ssao parameters which were removed accidently in last release. Fixed bug with subsurface scattering which was introduced in previous update.Home Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts.

What is ENBoost? Get the Current Binaries. Final thoughts. Trouble shooting. Change Log. Well if you're here, I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's because you are playing a modded version of Skyrim on your computer. You've started having random "crashes to desktop" CTDs after you added "X" and someone said you need it You probably do!
In combination with the SKSE memory configuration tweaks, this is probably one of the most important things you can do to make your system more stable. In short, the better your game looks, the more you're going to want this. A simple disclaimer though, there are a lot of reasons a game can become unstable, and this is not a repair guide. Still there's always help to be found around here, and someone willing to try. It is a 3D graphics series developed by Boris Vorontsov.
ENBs come in two parts. The binaries also come in two versions, the "wrapper", and the "Injector". Both of them function the same, and are configured almost identically, but are accessed differently by the computer.
This is important because the injector version works better for some people, and is often a fix for people having problems running the wrapper version. We will be focusing on the wrapper version in this guide, but there are instructions for using the injector version in the trouble shooting section.
For the purposes of this guide we are only interested in the Binary, which contains the advanced memory management features ENBoost.
