If you are interested in more information about Compression and how it works in games like Skyrim, I would recommend having a read of this https://fileadmin.cs...2006/thesis.pdf it may answer any questions you have.

 

While quite a lengthy read it is most certainly informative, more so than I have seen before ::):

Thank you for the paper!

 

It is certainly interesting. But I do not think this is what Boris has implemented as I would estimate it would take a modern GPU still some time to do with several hundred textures and it is lossy.

You're going to have to go ask Boris, if you want details in how the compression works. Technical details isn't the aim of the ENB Guides.

I was recently asked a question which left me scratching my head so I'm hoping you guys with your extensive knowledge could at least help me to come to a resolution

 

The question was.....

 

I'm paraphrasing here but this is the general gist of the question. "would ReservedMemorySizeMb's value be taken out of Skyrim's 3.1GB limit of addressed memory or is that "ReservedMemorySizeMb" value taken out of it's own separate process by ENBoost just like VideoMemorySizeMb is?"

 

I find myself now wondering what the answer is, does anyone have any clues ?

It's taken from VRAM, if I remember correctly, and that's the reason you want to use the smallest value possible.

So taken from VRam if your recollections serve you right, that means then that this value is removed from the pool which skyrim uses to get it's 3.1GB value am I right, if so then a setting of 512 would be too high considering the game can only utilize 4GB VRam if using Windows 8 and up. I was under the impression that ENB circumvented this issue with the enbhost application, although I think enbhost and all other associated enb files are all 32 bit which would make them succeptible to the same problem as Skyrim with Windows 8 and up after MS' latest mishap.

Yes, because what is used in VRAM is mirrored to RAM. ENBoost does circumvent this by loading multiple instances of enbhost.exe. Each instance will use up to the 32bit limit of system RAM. The technical limit that ENB has is 128GBs....assuming you have the system RAM.

Hmm, this is interesting. Does this mean that the information in Boris' VRamSizeTest can lead to incorrect values for VideoMemorySize for Windows 8 and 10 users? Because with Windows 8 or 10, it seems the highest number possible with the test tool is 4064MB (due to Microsoft DX9 4GB cap bug). If ENBoost can circumvent this cap with multiple instances, perhaps the value should be set higher?

 

That is the value I get, and you can see my full computer specs in my signature. Summary: Windows 8.1 Home, Nvidia GTX 970M (w/ 3GB VRam), 16GB RAM

It can't circumvent it on Windows 8 or higher. The number you put in is the amount enbhost will use. So it's only going to use 4GBs which would amount to only one...maybe two instances. Even ENB is not immune to Microsoft's blunder.

I forgot about this post lol Thanks for reply.  Since then I had a 200+ mod Skyrim, stable too! I did however changed my mind on a few mods I was using, so started a new game. now I have new problems! Oh, I do have AMD Rad graphics card also! I must have forgot to mention lol

 I have started a new game, same ini's and mods, just a fresh game and re-install of mods. I started to get stutter,(you can see in FP mode with weapon drawn "phasing" when looking up and down) not affecting my FPS either, most noticeable when looking around or with weapon drawn, and in certain areas interior, but not as prolific outdoors. So I re-installed Skyrim, still had the problem. So got enb Boost, got the crashFix's, and this fix also. My AMD is set for app, only vsync is enabled outside. I'm very stuck with this, and depressed lol I had a stable game before re-start, I re-started because there were mods I no longer wanted, and didn't want to use a save tool to remove them. Any help would be awesome, I'm not a smart egg (too many bumps to the head lol) So I really appreciate any help.
