1.C.2. AMD Users
This is my bad as I somehow overlooked this when I last checked the section but the steps
Mirror the anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering values set using the Skyrim Launcher above.
Make sure that [Anti-Aliasing Mode] and [Anti-Aliasing Samples] are set to Use application settings
contradict one another. STEP
should not be recommending the first of these two without good reason as this would lead to everything having AA and AF applied to it, lowering performance without necessarily increasing graphical fidelity. By letting the application determine the settings it can apply AA and AF only to items it chooses. The control panel should only be used to force AA and AF in games which don't offer these options, or where the developers clearly made a pig's ear of it.
Tick Enable Surface Format Optimization
I think I noted this last time. There are no check boxes in the Catalyst Control Panel, it's all drop-down boxes. This step should read "Set [Surface Format Optimization] to 'On'". Incidentally, this is the default setting.
Death Cam Duration Options - Not vanilla
What does this even mean? This is a mod guide, nothing here is vanilla.
Realistic Crime Radius - being replace via Wrye Bash setting
Has this actually been replaced? I couldn't find any reference to crime in the wiki. It seems odd to remove it before the replacement is ready, and even if for some reason this is the way the mod team wants to do it the note should be clearer. If the replacement is in the guide somewhere, it would be handy to note this as there's nothing to this effect in the change log.
Roosters At Dawn - causes various issues
Can we get more information or a link to more information? The change log isn't giving me enough to make an educated decision. For example, the next note is about removing a mod which conflicts with another mod, as I don't use the mod it conflicts with I know I can probably keep on using it safely.
Simple Crosshair - conflicts with NACMIM
Can the guide please avoid using shorthand in one location which is never explained or used anywhere else? The mod isn't called NACMIM in the guide so it shouldn't be called NACMIM in the change log.
D - Maximum Skeleton
2.2.5 had you install the "01 NON FNIS
patch" sub-package. The change log really should state that this sub-package should be removed now that FNIS
is part of STEP
. I assume that J packages will override D packages, but still.
