ENB 110 Shadow Comparisons
Posted 15 May 2012 - 03:50 PM
first i tested vanilla shadows quality to see the difference in performance.
medium: 47-48 fps
high: 41-42 fps
ultra: 29 fps
Then i tried enb; even with medium shadows settings the fps dropped to 30.5-31 and after the tweaks in the .ini it went to 24 fps (vs 30 fps) with fshadowdistance=4000.
This seems like an huge fps drops for me. I tried to disable everithing possible in the enbseries.ini but i couldn't get above 39-40 (instead of 46) and the image is exactly the same,because toggling shift + f10 does nothing exept changing the fps.
here is my setup:
-dowloaded enb 0.111, downloaded this and overrited with s4n enbseries.ini.
-used a clean save with a few mods loaded (skyrenolighting, imaginator, proper aiming, autoFP and WATER)
-used default .ini files, exept ballowgrasscreate=0 and fSunUpdateThreshold=20.0 (for screenshot purposes)
-set shadow quality to medium and added s4n tweak settings.
-gt 555m 3gb @default
Well, using s4n tweaks reduced my fps from 41 to 30 so this may be one of the settings i cannot affort with my videocard, the thing that bothers me is that i don't see an improvement in the image quality:
.ini at default, shadows on high, no enb - 40 fps
tweaked .ini, fshadowdistance=4000, enb - 24 fps
what do you think?

Here i wanted to compare the shadows with the vanilla ones because originally i was trying to find the thr fshadowdistance with the best performance/qualty ratio but i stopped due to the performance hit.

the screens on that page for 2.0 look really amazing to me. Makes me sad that my computer can't handle the other effects. It shows just how nice enb 111 can make the game look (at least, it looks good to me).
