Hello S.T.E.P community. Before I start addressing this problem I feel that it's important to mention that I have quite literally looked everywhere to find a solution to this problem. I have been taken from the Steam and Nexus forums to the ENB Series forums and even to Lovers Lab (Yes I know...) and I have failed to find a solution for this problem. 

 

I have recently spotted a new ENB on the nexus called Natural Lighting Vivid Atmospherics and have completed the installation process for that mod, including configuring the Wrapper files and ENBoost. However when I go to launch my game via the Mod Organizer my game fails to start up and a window pops up saying that Skyrim has stopped responding, with no context as to why. (I will provide an attachment on the window I get.) I used v0.305 of the ENB Series which is the latest version and all the feedback for this error is pretty typical; download DirectX End-User Runtimes (unsuccessful), delete crapware(Searched for every file that could be considered crapware, unsuccessful), change the SKSE DefaultAlloc to a different value (Not using the memory patch at the moment due to using the SKSE installer instead of doing it manually), or just dump the Wrapper Version and use the Injector. (Which still doesn't work.) 

 

This problem has been very frustrating for me and I was going to come to the conclusion that ENB just can't work on my computer until I used a different version of ENB, v0.119. I tried it out using the d3d9.dll from that version since any newer version of d3d9.dll is the sole reason for my game crashing in the first place. (and without It ENB just doesn't activate.) Turns out that this version trumped it and allows my game to work, however when entering the game the ENB looks nothing like intended by myself and the author of the preset. Examples of this include weird pixel-like effects on shadows and a game that just generally looks weird and stutters.  

 

I know my computer is capable of running an ENB but obstacles such as these just halt any development in my gameplay. With Vanilla Skyrim, It doesn't matter If I have a large or small mod set up because my game always ends up working and is for the most part pretty stable. I can play for hours on end without issues so I don't get how I can't with ENB. If anyone finds a solution to this problem please answer as soon as you can, thank you!

Doesn't matter. It's going to simply run it's installer once extracted.

Have you turned off all the INI settings for AA and AF? Also, have you set the proper settings for ENB use for things like the Float Point Render?

I know not having the enb changes in skyrim/skyrimprefs.ini settings won't cause that crash, because I use inis without those all the time by mistake.

But bad enblocal.ini and enbseries.ini settings definitely will.

Yes, I have done all of these things on the SkyrimPrefs.ini since I do it by using Mod Manager. My game still crashes down.

If you have any programs that provide an overlay in game, including Steam, try disabling them also.

ENB LOCAL:

 
SkyrimPrefs.ini 
 
Skyrim.ini 

System Specs 
 
Microsoft Windows 10 Dell Inspiron 3847 Intel® Core™ i3-4160 CPU @ 3.60GHz Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

If you have any programs that provide an overlay in game, including Steam, try disabling them also.

Steam Is the only thing I use and that's required to launch the game. When I try to enter Skyrim from the launcher on Steam It stops responding.

You haven't made the changes to your INI. Recommended changes to SkyrimPrefs.ini:

 

  • iBlurDeferredShadowMask=3
  • iMaxAnisotropy=0
  • iMultiSample=0
  • bTreesReceiveShadows=1
  • bDrawLandShadows=1
  • bFloatPointRenderTarget=1

Use the INI Editor in MO to made these changes to your profile.

 

sD3DDevice="IntelĀ® HD Graphics 4400" <<<--- you're going to struggle to even run the game, much less run an ENB Preset. You might want to second think running an ENB Preset and just stick to ENBoost.

The reason it is crashing is because you are telling it that you have way more video memory than you have. You need a proper graphics card.

DoubleYou, the value is TOTAL VIDEO MEMORY, not VRAM. Run the tool for yourself and see: https://enbdev.com/d...ramsizetest.htm If anything he's got it set too low. Although in this case who knows? All of his video memory is RAM lol

 

Anyways his enblocal.ini settings look fine, they're set as per the STEP guide.

Although I'll agree with the "need a proper graphics card to run enb". If he doesn't even have a laptop GPU, his computer is not good enough... Rule of thumb - enb drops fps by a minimum of 20-30, so if you aren't getting at least 60 fps on ultra without enb, you won't even be getting 30 fps with it. Like all rules of thumb it varies widely by exact preset, screen resolution, and other mods, but I've heard reports that even with all graphical features turned off there is still an fps drop just for running it as long as usepatchspeedhackwithoutgraphics=false. 

 

Also seriously click on my link in my first comment you guys, literally everything you suggested is listed...

and one thing I left out: Did you actually put your enb preset files in the skyrim folder correctly?
 

Moot point at this point because you shouldn't be installing a preset, you should be turning usepatchspeedhackwithoutgraphics=true :-/

The maximum amount of graphics memory an I3-4160 integrated card can use is 2GB (source), so since he has this set to 3714 (~3.6 GB), he is calling for 1.6 GB more graphics memory than his integrated card can handle, unless I am mistaken.
