Hi everyone. The topic of this thread is going to sound very stupid, but I assure you I've been trying my best to keep up with all the instructions and explanations you guys have offered.
I've been modding games since I was a kid. I've been playing my modded version of Skyrim for years and I like to think I have a basic understanding of what things are how things work. But this ENB stuff confused the hell out of me. Every single time I try and download ENBoost, I spend half an hour stumbling through the website and searching for information before my eyes glaze over and I just give up. Any help you can give me would be appreciated, even if you need to talk to me like I'm 5 years old.
So, I'm trying to follow the STEP instructions, but I've already run into issues in the first two steps (https://wiki.step-project.com/ENBoost):
1. The instructions say I need DirectX 9. This appears to be an old version from 2010. Can I not update it any further? Or is this the most recent version? After installing it, does it matter where I put the file? I just want to make sure I'm not missing any details
2. I'm trying to download the ENB binary, but for the life of me I can't navigate the ENB website. The link in the STEP page takes me to what looks like a changelog with no actual downloads (http://enbdev.com/do..._tesskyrim.html). When I click the "download" tab, it takes me to a general page that lists patches for several different games (http://enbdev.com/download.htm). When I click on Skyrim, it takes me to a page with an outdated download link (http://enbdev.com/do...atch_skyrim.htm). I have no idea where to go from here.
So yeah like I said, I'm sure I'm just missing something obvious here but this entire process has baffled me for years and I apparently can't follow simple instructions. Can anyone help explain what I'm missing? Thanks in advance.
