 As one who has crashed out of Skyrim several times over the years I'm attempting to follow the STEP program very carefully in hopes of a stable install.  However, carefully working my way through the instructions I'm finding what appear to be inconsistencies and would appreciate clarification. Setting Up the Skyrim Profile

Texture Filtering

Problem 1: "The settings for AF should match the picture above for the STEP recommendations from the STEP Guide. In the INI tweak section on the STEP Guide, Anisotropic Filtering (AF) was turned off. Now it needs to be turned on using Inspector."

 

Question: WHICH Anisotropic Filtering, Anisotropic Filtering Mode or Anisotropic Filtering Settings?  Either is possible, Guide instructions don't state which.  If the statement "The settings for AF should match the picture above for the STEP recommendations from the STEP Guide" is correct then in my case the Anisotropic Filtering Settings have already been switched to OFF, but the Guide statement that something needs to be changed could equally refer to Anisotropic Filtering Mode.  Clarification requested.

 

Problem 2:  "Users not using ENBoost should set Anisotropic filtering setting as indicated below. ENBoost users should ensure the Anisotropic filtering setting is off and set ForceAnisotropicFiltering is set to true in theenblocal.ini file."

 

This seems to contradict the statement in the STEP 2.10.0 Guide: "YES, ENBoost is needed by EVERYONE, including those that do not use ENB Presets!"

 

Once again, clarification requested.

Hello akmatov :) I did this guide 3 times and I think I'm competent enough to answer you very simply.

 

1 question: just set both of them to "Application Controlled / Off" - it means application itself (in this case skyrim) will controll the filtering process not nvidia application.

 

2 question: so in first you allowed for skyrim to controll filtering right, now by setting ForceAntisotropicFiltering to TRUE you allow for ENB to controll filtering of skyrim, not skyrim itself will controll it.

 

So yes ENBoost is needed even if you are not using Presets. It manages some other graphics settings also the antisotropic filtering.

 

Long story short: in NVIDIA you allow filtering to be controlled by SKYRIM and later you allow ENBOOST to controll filtering. That's it. Why? Because probably ENBOOST is the best guy who can hadle filtering properly. :D I don't know ^^

Many thx for such a fast and direct response.  About to start all over again due to installing the wrong SKSE, so this is especially useful
