Hello,

 

Like another poster above, I can't get the Performance Monitor to work with Skyrim. I have both the main file and launcher file paths going to Mod organizer and I load the game through mod orgaznizer using SKSE. Nothing shows up in-game, no graphs, nothing. Can anyone help?

I have had the same problem. I changed the target of "Skyrim main program file path" to TESV.exe and that did it, now the counters appear in game.

edit: this works only when I'm not using ENBoost.

 

edit again: okay, with ENBoost, you just have to check "Attempt support for Custom D3D9.dll" for the in-game counters & the FPS graph to work.

When using this with Mod Organizer, I assume I point the ini file path to the one in the MO profile folder vs. the defaulted document\my games\skyrim...

 

Can anyone confirm or advise, please?

Point your ini file to your skyrimprefs.ini under your normal skyrim folder in documents

Hi!

I can't make the tool working.. I did all you recommandations but when I launch my game via MO & SKSE, I have full black main menu with no mouse pointer/

 

Edit : It seems that the tool only work with Injector version of ENB.

You sure you didn't forget:

  1. Go to the Miscellaneous Settings tab.
  2. ENBoost and ENB users should check the Attempt Support for Custom D3D9.dll and Combine TESV and ENBHost System RAM settings.

I can't see the shift-enter ENB menu when using this. I can see the hourglass but not the menu itself. Is there a fix for that? I have the ENB options selected in SPM options.

Hi folks.  Yes, SPM currently only works consistently with the injector version of ENB.  Please note that this is a limitation of SPM, and not with the excellent ENB software.

I've been experiencing FPS drops in certain areas of the game and I've been trying to figure out what might be causing the drops.  One of the tools I used was SPM, but it didn't seem to help.  Apparently, the FPS will drop irrelevant of rises or falls in usage of: Memory, VRAM, Disk I/O, CPU %, GPU %, GPU °C, or Threads.  What other factors would cause decreases in FPS and increases in stutter?  I cannot figure out what's causing this, only some of the areas and directions I face that do it.

Typically this behavior is caused by the amount of detail in certain areas of the game.  I get the same thing around areas like Riften where that area has a dense amount of foliage and high building detail.  This causes the game engine to work harder, thus dropping FPS.  This can be observed by moving around outside of Riften, and then simply moving you view to point to an area of minimal detail, like the sky.

I found out that the main culprit was Skyrim Distance Overhaul (SDO).  Once I uninstalled that my game speed performance (which includes the FPS) increased a lot.  I guess it had to do with the extra details being loaded into a lot of LODs added by that mod.  Hopefully when DynDOLOD replaces SDO it will run better, and not worse.

So, since my WIN10 install, I haven't been able to get this working either. Set up as intended, by which I mean it tells MO to load up, then sits in a wait-state looking for SKSE_Loader... which it never seems to detect. Tried having it look for TESV as well with same result. Any thoughts?

What settings have you got for the executables and the default INIs to use?

I've recently updated to Win10 and I see no issue with SPM.

Loader Executatble is pointed to MO, works fine. Main executable pointed to SKSE_Loader. INIs are using the default inis in the Documents file tree.
