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!
