30 october

Skyrim SE graphics modding is similar complex and limited as with Fallout 4, so ENBSeries for it will not be similar by amount of features as for original Skyrim.

29 october

Having issues installing VC++ 2015 runtime for Win7 because of Windows6.1-KB2999226-x64.msu patch as part of it. So, can't say anything yet about Skyrim SE graphics modding.

Use at your own risk.

23 february 2016

Published ENBSeries 0.304 for TES Skyrim. Added localization support files enblocalization.xml and enbfontunicode.png, hope this feature will help users to understand how to tweak mod. Example localization is very short and contains just description of some parameters in english.

23 february 2016

Thanks for donation from Karl Evans.

23 february 2016

Updated ENBSeries/ENBoost 0.303 for TES Skyrim without version change. Removed previous fix, it causes world map not properly functional because of game bug, so better to keep it as it is. Only own mod code have timing fix now, not the game.

22 february 2016

20 february 2016

Thanks for donation from Eric Felek and Maximilian Hummel.

18 february 2016

Published ENBoost 0.303 at Nexus here. Report issues in comments there or at main forum.

18 february 2016

Published ENBSeries 0.303 for TES Skyrim. Added new ENBoost features which improve stability at cost of performance, check parameters under [THREADS] category of enblocal.ini. Bigger values for DataSync and Priority modes means lower frame rate, more stuttering and higher incompatibility with other software, some previously working screen capturing tools may crash or be extremely slow with new setting other than 0. Developed and tested for mods pack which have 40% crash rate on loading, when DataSyncMode=1 no crashes occurs. Please avoid sharing enblocal.ini, new setting depends from OS, CPU and some other software running and need to be configured individually. Also be careful with saving game, game scripts and physics may act differently, better make backup of saves until this version will be fully tested.

1 february 2016

Thanks for donation from ahycb (StephenvilleYellowJackets.com).

31 january 2016

Published ENBSeries 0.301 for TES Skyrim. Added color filter and it's amount parameters to game weather dependent variables, so now editing weather in Creation Kit is not required for making nice looking preset. Some variables do not have ColorFilterAmount parameter, this means their values can be set to one by curve=0 or such parameters do not change with weather to bother with increasing complexity of the mod for end users. Say bye-bye to crappy weathers of the game and wait for per location setting.

29 january 2016

Updated ENBSeries 0.300 for Dragon's Dogma without version change. Fixed exterior dusk and dawn applied to interiors.

29 january 2016

Published ENBSeries 0.300 for Dragon's Dogma. Increased performance of skylighting effect and added reflected sun light computation to it. Changed code of ambient occlusions blending in foggy areas to make it filtered from vertical fog type too. Fixed dawn and dusk time lengths. Added external shader and parameters for controlling game depth of field effect, which is mostly visible as ugly bloom everywhere. Changed code of bloom shader to fit to the game. Changed enbeffect.fx shader code. Added new weather type found by user and default preset of the mod is now semi configured for weather system.

29 january 2016

Thanks for donation from D Cornelisse, James Gilbert, Evelyn(Yersinia) and Frode Hovik, Phillip Clark.

Added multiple weathers support with parameters and editor window for them, i found only three weathers, gamers may add another types if will see. Added dawn and dusk times of the day. Added detailed shadows for player's lantern and parameters to toggle shadow type. Increased range of intensities applied by ambient occlusion and skylighting to make them more contrast.

24 january 2016

Thanks for donation from Andrew Watkins.

23 january 2016

Published ENBSeries 0.298 for Dragon's Dogma. Added parameter to disable mod at loading screens and disable fake shadows under feet. Added hotkey for fps limiter for those users who have long loading screens and fps limiter helps. Heavy hdr mode parameter which is slow mode but have maximal quality of rendering with a different look of bright areas of the screen.

23 january 2016

Thanks for donation from Juan C Rodriguez and NattyDread.

21 january 2016

Added to gallery screenshots of Dragon's Dogma upcoming features and tweaked old ones.

20 january 2016

20 january 2016

Thanks for donation from Francisco Rodriguez.

19 january 2016

Published ENBSeries 0.297 for Dragon's Dogma. Fixed not working high precision rendering and missing game fade screen when vignette disabled in enblocal.ini.

Thanks for donation from Cornelius Wimmer, Alexander Kislitsyn, Steven McCaul and Damien Marot.

17 january 2016

Updated ENBSeries 0.296 for Dragon's Dogma without version change. Forgot to restore code for non high precision rendering mode.

17 january 2016

Published ENBSeries 0.296 for Dragon's Dogma. Added fix for long loading screens to enblocal.ini, high precision rendering to decrease color banding artifacts at cost of performance, changed ambient occlusion code, added time of the day separation, parameters for sky and sun. Users with stuttering need to set fps limiter a bit lower than average frame rate, because game threads don't have enough time spinning on same cpu core. More features are in development.

17 january 2016

Thanks for donation from Olga Lazaryeva and Ozgur Buyuk.

15 january 2016

Published ENBSeries 0.295 for Dragon's Dogma. Fixed bugs, removed hair fix for ssao, improved visual quality of ambient occlusion and indirect lighting.

15 january 2016

Thanks for donation from Peter Lang.

13 january 2016

If you have issues with Dragon's Dogma mod, make sure game video options are maxed and hdr set to high. Fix for hairs in enblocal.ini produce bugs because game draws some objects incorrectly to depth and normal buffers, with flipped triangles, so ssao computes bold heads if this fix disabled or you have another visual artifacts. Bugs with shadows in some areas will be fixed as soon as i get there, mod was tested in prologue only.

13 january 2016

Published ENBSeries 0.294 for Dragon's Dogma. It's a very nice game, i strongly advise to buy it, this is not creepy hell as Dark Souls. Shaders are fully compatible with TES Skyrim, so you may use them from presets (Nexus web site or forum here), default included is not tweaked. When game will be officially released, i'll do the changes accordingly, if required. This version is made from Skyrim mod and have many of it's code existing, which is negatively affect video memory usage, i'll clear up things later. Mod includes ssao, ssil, depth of field, bloom, lens shaders, toggling game hud.

10 january 2016

Because of bugs in version 0.293 which is hard to fix in short period of time, it is beta from this moment. Please use 0.291 instead.

Updated ENBSeries 0.288 for Fallout 4 without version change. Added tempInfo2 parameter to external shaders.

10 december 2015

Published ENBSeries 0.288 for Fallout 4. It's not beta any more. Added enbbloom.fx and enblens.fx shaders as examples for preset makers, bloom is drawed after depth of field and lens after bloom. Added parameters and lens texture to enbeffect.fx shader. Added RenderTargetRGB32F temporary render target to depth of field and post process shader for optimization purposes. Changed render targets format of enbeffectpostpass.fx to 32 bit with 10 bits per color channel and 2 bits for alpha, performance is more important than quality difference which nobody can see when using 64 bit format. Added dithering. Fixed mistakes in my comments for shader files.

10 december 2015

Thanks for donation from Rene Johansen and Christopher Schneider.

8 december 2015

Published ENBSeries 0.287 beta for Fallout 4. Added depth of field shader with example code for bokeh dof, computation of focusing distance without first person models and aperture.

Added support of temporary render targets for enbeffectpostpass.fx shader file and new textures for it, temporary targets have predefined formats and full screen size. Added enbadaptation.fx external shader for eye adaptation effect. Added adaptation parameters to enbseries.ini config file. Changed format of main enbeffectpostpass.fx render targets to 16 bit per channel format to hide color banding completely. Fixed all reported bugs.

6 december 2015

Thanks for donation from Sandra Ligon.

3 december 2015

Published ENBSeries 0.285 beta for Fallout 4. Added support of external enbeffectpostpass.fx shader, which is replacement of effect.txt shader. Sample file is included, but file format may change after discussion with modders, so it's just preview. Fixed reported bugs of previous version. Added parameter to toggle post pass shader.

3 december 2015

Updated ENBSeries 0.284 beta for Fallout 4 without version change. Added states of mouse buttons to external shader, added gamma correction code to enbeffect.fx shader to make low dynamic range output of it similar to other versions of ENBSeries.

1 december 2015

Published ENBSeries 0.284 beta for Fallout 4. First release of graphic mod as beta test. ENBoost part of it is included and recommended for performance reasons instead of version 0.283. Added support of external enbeffect.fx shader and some parameters in enbseries.ini. This version do not have any changes to visuals by default and require editing of shader (except color correction parameters). I just need to get statistics if everything works properly and if new file standard is good enough for custom shaders. Report issues on the forum.

26 november 2015

My message to preset makers here.

25 november 2015

Player on the forum reported about performance issues with AMD Crimson drivers when using memory manager ENBoost for Skyrim. Of course Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas also affected. I recommend to avoid new drivers unless they will be optimized. Or if you must use them, please set DisableDriverMemoryManager=true in enblocal.ini for better frame rate.

21 november 2015

ShadowBoost 1.1.30.0 is released. This mod increase performance by reducing shadow distance automatically based on desired fps and current fps. You may download it from Nexus purgatory here and binaries from Alexander Blade web site here.

21 november 2015

Thanks for donation from fadingsignal.

19 november 2015

Frequently Fallout 4 players asking how to improve performance in the cities. The answer is simple - reduce drawing distance of shadows, because game have bottleneck of draw calls count and in some camera directions i've seen more than 12000 draw calls. Overclocking CPU helps a little with this, but only for Intel users, for AMD it's not scales well.

19 november 2015

Thanks for donation from Abdul Alsaloli and Chris Banta.

16 november 2015

Published ENBoost 0.283 for Fallout 4. Added draw calls statistics to profiler. Added UsePatchSpeedhackWithoutGraphics parameter to enblocal.ini to disable graphic modification code for maximal performance.

15 november 2015

Updated ENBoost 0.282 for Fallout 4 without version change. Added bug fix which leads to startup message or editor of ENBoost to appear on character face. It should also affect stability of the game.

15 november 2015

Thanks for donation from Jonathan Eriksen.

13 november 2015

Published ENBoost 0.282 for Fallout 4. Did workaround for Steam GameOverlayRenderer64.dll library which hooks in to game even when Steam overlay disabled which crashes with the ENBoost, so you don't need to delete it any more. But i do not recommend to use Steam overlay anyway, it have too big chance to corrupt mod functionality.

13 november 2015

Just want to mention few important tips for Fallout 4. Official game RAM requirements is incorrect, it need at least 8.5 Gb of available memory, so installed RAM size must be more than 10 Gb for OS and other processes. If you don't have enough RAM, the swap file will be used and quickly kill ssd drive if located in there and of course expect huge performance drops. Even if you have 16 Gb of RAM, do not disable swap file and set it at least to 1 Gb, otherwise game will not work properly. Users with less than 8 Gb must use very big swap file size to avoid crashes and every other fancy features of Bethesda games. For future mods with hi-res texture packs i recommend to buy at least 16 Gb RAM (but bigger is better with ENBoost).

13 november 2015

First solution to the crash was found - deleting GameOverlayRenderer64.dll from Steam folder. Still don't know how to reproduce bug by myself.

13 november 2015

Updated ENBoost 0.281 for Fallout 4 without version change. Just disabled memory tweak in enblocal.ini, because several users reported crash at startup with it enabled. Need futher investigation why this happen (and why works fine for me).

13 november 2015

Added ENBoost to Nexus web site here.

13 november 2015

Published ENBoost 0.281 for Fallout 4. Added memory control feature to avoid lod issues for users with not enough physical vram size and for future mods, modify enblocal.ini [MEMORY] category based on information reported by VRamSizeTest dx11 tool (do not set value bigger than reported by it). Added ApplyStabilityPatch parameter which toggles off bugfixes, but keep vram adjust feature.

12 november 2015

Updated ENBPatch 0.280 for Fallout 4 without version change. Added DisableFakeLights to enblocal.ini to remove unrealistic back lighting for characters.

12 november 2015

Thanks for donation from Jesse Ochoa.

10 november 2015

Published ENBPatch 0.280 for Fallout 4. It do not use any graphic enhancements, but only fixes some game specific bugs or at least designed for that as i don't have bugs for test them myself. Regarding graphics, i'm very dissapointed, Fallout 4 developers outperfomed themselves by ugliness of renderer architecture and graphics modding will be many times harder than with their older games, some features can't be implemented at all.

8 november 2015

Updated ENBSeries 0.279 for TES Skyrim without version change. Added BruteForce with new hotkey (shift+b) for screen archers. This mode enables very high quality for effects and advanced algorithms, at huge performance cost. Right now only ambient occlusion and indirect lighting is improved only, calculations including self shadowing of these effects. Be careful with it, low quality videocards or overclocked can be corrupted. Added to profiler two variables which show how many valid and invalid textures are loaded by ENBoost memory manager, because invalid textures have much longer loading times and stuttering as result (medium and low texture quality do the same).

8 november 2015

Thanks for donation from Seth Triplett, John Westfield and William Faulk.

31 october 2015

Got report that recent ENBSeries 0.279 may damage videocard if heavy effects enabled. Too high optimization for ambient occlusion easily breaks low quality or overclocked hardware. I don't see any point in degrading optimization or slowing down something, if hardware unable to handle it, burn this shit. Obviously, AMD cards are the weakest for the issue, so i strongly advise to not use ambient occlusion and reflection with any overclocked and/or hot models, especially high-end category like 6990, 7970, 7990, etc. Underclocking and using frame limiters and vsync may help to avoid issues. From this moment i do not support AMD cards at all, for any version of the mod, current or made in future, i am not a big fan of wasting money to fix mistakes of any vendor.

27 october 2015

Updated ENBSeries 0.248 for GTA San Andreas without version change. Added requested features to enbeffectprepass.fx shader - normal map texture, additional transform matrices and camera position.

Thanks for donation from William Faulk.

5 july 2015

Published ENBSeries 0.277 for TES Skyrim. Removed EnableTransparencyAA, because not widely used and cost performance even when disabled.

Regarding selling Skyrim mods as recent feature of Steam, it's awful idea (of course it's nice for Valve, damn it) which will turn to unlimited flow of trash and fights (i can't buy anything at Steam now, because all the games are indie early access, but it's my personal problem, right?). I was asked about mods there which use ENBSeries for their screenshots, actually it's okay. Also in license you may find that it's possible to sell presets of ENBSeries, but without any binaries of it (dll, exe).

17 april 2015

I think the idea behind my words on the forum about GTA 5 modding was misunderstood. Modding is possible for any game, the question is how complex is it and much how long to develop tools for it. Rockstar once again failed to understand that the all long living games (except mmo) are moddable or got the tools for modding made by their fans. Decrypt game data is just a small part of the job required for modding and game developers have the power to break all the progress by releasing patches, as they did for GTA4, they are always one step futher. Latest Steam version of the game is the only one would be supported by modders obviously, but it can be patched at any time and as many times as developers decide to do that. A lot of players have issues even starting the game, so the patches will be released by this reason too. I wasted a lot of time on GTA 4 modding, because several months game was not playable with only background and main character visible, then every patch required many changes to be made in ENBSeries. I can't repeat this process again when i see how R* act against modders, modern versions of ENBSeries are no longer generic mods (use ReShade, SweetFX for that), tons of research and testing behind it, at this moment Skyrim statistics in Steam shows 1847 hours spent in the game, but i don't play it. Can you imagine how many times game was restarted and each time i watching intros and loading screens? I'll make GTA 5 mod only when certain conditions will be met, just releasing in first day simple version like for Dark Souls was not in my plans. At last, what i said about suicide have nothing in common with GTA 5, but with my life issues and lose of hell many hard earned money and health, i don't care about GTA at all and just saying my opinion (and other modders, Alexander Blade too).

One more update regarding "GTX 970 memory bug". Wrote another test to check how that slow 0.5 gb memory works and again it's the same thing which driver do for a long time, that memory is stored in RAM instead of VRAM, that's why it slow. Basically, this is standart behavior for the most videocards on the market (vram is physical vram + a bit ram). What it means on practice compared to another videocards? GTX 970 have 3.5 Gb of VRAM. What i see in articles with explanation from NVidia is half-lie and of course casual people are incompenent and better to not listen to them. I don't think it's something horrible to loose 0.5 gb, but it's bad that NVidia hide such information (my own videocard with 2 gb or vram have access to 2.5 gb and nobody annonced it as 2.0 fast and 0.5 slow). Myth busted.

27 january 2015

Another update regarding "GTX 970 memory bug". I am and Alexander Blade did own tests and prooved that this performance issue exist, but it is not hardware bug as i thought. Performance decreases even for memory allocation outside of 3.5-4gb memory range after that "bug" occur (in released previously allocated blocks), so it's driver bug (or may be driver configuration per videocard model). Myth busted.

24 january 2015

Just want to say few things about recently found "GTX 970 memory bug". Do not panic, this looks like driver management of resources and any video memory tests are useless, unless they are running from clear DOS mode. I have seen a lot of videocards per model which suffer from performance issues when vram is near to end, only developers of drivers do know how that works.

13 january 2015

Seems bug with shadows on latest NVidia drivers was false alarm, not many players have it and reverting drivers do nothing.

17 august 2014

Thanks for donation from ikt.

15 august 2014

Updated ENBSeries 0.262 for TES Skyrim without version change. Added distance fade parameter for the mist, may be it will help to find out if volumetric mist required. Also rescaled vertical fade of the mist by 0.25.

14 august 2014

Published ENBSeries 0.262 for TES Skyrim. Added volumetric mist, it's same mist from older versions, but raytraced as volume. Effect not optimized and use visible dithering pattering, if visual improvement worth it, i'll make changes to make it fast and smooth. Parameters are used from old mist, volume generated from anchors (additional editor panel) when you press new button to update volumetric map. Unfortunately mist designed for exponential fade and hard to notice changes in volume, that's why i'm not sure about future of volumetric mist. Report result on the forum and don't forget that mist require enbhelper.dll to be installed (helper plugin from dev-c.com).

10 august 2014

Published ENBSeries 0.261 for TES Skyrim. Added opacity parameters for volumetric fog (by request). Fixed bug with flickering ambient occlusion, image based lighting and subsurface scattering when using camera fly mode console command at some conditions. Clouds are not made in this version yet.

10 august 2014

Thanks for donation from Robert Hughes.

4 august 2014

Added to gallery another set of screenshots wip volumetric clouds. Much slower scattering math to make them looks not like smoke, but no full lighting yet. Still don't know how to make them editable for users easily, i'm too bad when things come to make important decisions.

5 july 2014

Published ENBSeries 0.260 for Serious Sam 2. Added programmable post processing shaders. Depth of field shader not supported. Time of the day detector ignored and don't work, day is always set by default. Default shaders not tweaked, i recommend to adopt users made for other games. I did this mod just because game don't have any tonemapping algorithm and suffer from oversaturation.

4 july 2014

Updated ENBoost 0.259 for TES Oblivion without version change. Removed code which disable antialiasing.

3 july 2014

Published ENBoost 0.259 for TES Oblivion. It's Nexus web page is here. This is patch which increase available memory for game process, it do not apply any graphical changes. It's only useful when you have many mods installed and high resolution textures, in that case game may run out of memory and crash without this patch. One solution is 4gb patch, but it's doing only part of job, this one is similar, but increase memory even more (can be used together with 4gb patch). Tweaking and installation is same as ENBoost for TES Skyrim and Fallout 3, you may find them on Nexus web site.

3 july 2014

Thanks for donation from Sharon Branch, John Westfield.

25 june 2014

Published ENBSeries 0.258 for Far Cry 2. Added programmable post processing shaders. Depth of field shader not supported, i don't see any reason to waste time on it for first person shooter game. Time of the day detector works and it's information passed to shaders. Because game have wrong texture colors for grass and trees, did filter in enbeffect.fx which replace color. Shader code is tweaked a little to make game look more like other Far Cry games, but i recommend to wait presets by users (on the forum), if they will be interested at all. To work properly, enable hdr and bloom in game video options.

25 june 2014

Thanks for donation from Brian Johnson.

12 june 2014

Updated ENBSeries 0.254 for TES Skyrim without version change. Made changes to ENBoost part of the mod, increased texture caching time for clones of same objects, reduced chance of multithreading errors if game loading resources while huge lag occur (several seconds).

12 june 2014

Thanks for donation from Erika Tschinkel.

10 june 2014

10 june 2014

Sorry folks, i had some issues, hope to get back to modding now.

14 may 2014

Dark Souls 2 mod development is stopped, whatever you think, it's very low quality game, from coding side, usability and almost all other sides. I'm unable to push myself test this without using cheat software and without portable save games, may be players can eat this more or less, but not when you trying to test and debug. Use Durante mod, SweetFX or the latest version of ENBSeries (probably i'll update it silently to test version which posted on the forum). And for godsake stop annoy me with your own opinion about the game, game will not become any better from that, i rather play Blade of Darkness or some other old cool fantasy with proper mechanics.

5 may 2014

Dark Souls 2 crashes for some users when loading saved game, while traveling the world or while alt+tabbing in full screen mode. Thanks to testers, but i can't do anything about such issues, they do not appear on regular basis, there is no way to find out what is it from my side. Because mod is rock solid for others, i assume it's not the issue of the mod, but with it. Fortunately solution found - NT4 compatibility mode set for game process almost elliminate crashes. Please update your preset pages with this information.

Thanks for donation from Guillaume Berthe, Sven Konigsmann, Jesse Ochoa, Grigor Eftimov, Markus Bohm.

1 may 2014

30 april 2014

Published ENBSeries 0.257 for Dark Souls 2. Added edge antialiasing. Removed forcing of anisotropic filtering and lod bias as these are incompatible with game. Fixed ambient occlusion flickering bug and some objects which haven't it applied. Game sun rays now visible and intensity controlled by new variable in enbseries.ini. Btw, VAC may ban ENBSeries after new game patch, this is not confirmed yet, but better to warn you. The same with other similar graphic mods.

28 april 2014

Updated ENBSeries 0.256 for Dark Souls 2 without version change. Fixed some visual artifacts and device reset bug when working with in-game ENBSeries editor.

28 april 2014

Published ENBSeries 0.256 for Dark Souls 2. Added day-night detection and separated prameters accordinly, also in external shaders. Added parameters to enblocal.ini for forcing NVidia card, this may help to fix issues.

Published ENBSeries 0.255 beta for Dark Souls 2. Fixed bug with ghosting of ambient occlusions at some camera angles and not working depth of field at same cases. Removed obsolette parameters for time of the day, all forced for day only. Added controls for objects lighting. Also on top of this page added link to the users gallery, check it out.

28 april 2014

Some players asked me to make mod for Dark Souls 2, but now they call me in other places any way they want (including information like my software is untrusted and malicious), just because i have strict position and do not share their opinion. This must be known to public i believe, because this problem appear each time, nobody wants truth, but only worker prostitute for free to satisfy them. Of course i can modify each shit which appear on the market, but is it worth it? I'm not seeking of respect from these beings, but they exist always, so just modding the games which deserve life spent for that is the proper and safer practice. Do you like or hate me, doesn't matter for me, i don't even know in real life those persons, but it's your childish behavior (not mine) to not respect others opinion. Malicious code in ENBSeries you say, because others think not like you? Isn't that mean your brain have a trojan?

Modified all quality parameters by names, previous "extreme -1" is now named "very high -1" and extreme have value -2, this do not affect anything by performance or quality, so no need to modify anything.
Btw, by users reports on the forum, latest NVidia drivers are incompatible with ENBSeries.

13 december 2013

Want to explain some things regarding shadow from clouds. Some users reported not working subsurface scattering for eyes and vegetation, but it's not a bug, because that kind of sss use direct light (sun for exterior day) data for computations, of course effect not visible when object covered by shadow. Only subsurface scattering for skin or customized objects like candles do work in any conditions, because it computed from overall lighting, not just from sun.

14 october 2013

Thanks for donation from Martin Cohen.

13 october 2013

Seems found solution for AMD users who unable to run mod with water, will do update soon (want to add some changes to parallaxed water).

13 october 2013

From bug reports 0.229 still not work for radeon 6xxx users, so somehow it's fine only for 4xxx or for hardware setup used for testing. I'll try then another workaround soon.

13 october 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.229 for TES Skyrim. Added parallax for water, it use alpha channel of normal maps, check if your favorite water mod is updated or edit it textures yourself. Did temporary workaround for critical AMD drivers bug when water enabled, at cost of performance of other effects (very noticable with old videocards like gf9600).

13 october 2013

Bad news this time. Water shaders absolutely not working for most AMD videocards, even old and old drivers. This is driver bug and not in my shaders (i can't imagine how badly work other my mods on AMD because of same issue). Wanted to test on my secondary AMD videocard, but it is dead after just lying in the box half of the year. Thanks to Alexander Blade for helping me to find out by trials and errors, testing cost him more than 50 reboots because of freezes. Solutions against AMD are limited to few. First, compile to older DXSDK, seems AMD do not "optimize" shaders from it, but performance of complex effects like reflections and ambient occlusion will be 1.3 times slower, especially noticable for old videocards. Second solution - disable water for AMD users by detecting vendor. Third, get Nvidia card and you will be fine. Btw, parallax is ready, only damned AMD is the problem.

12 october 2013

Amd users seems having problems running version 0.228, water shaders won't compile. It will take time to find and fix as i'm nvidia user, wait updates.

12 october 2013

Published video of water with parallax here. It work only with modified water textures (normal maps) which have height in alpha channel, but i don't know any water modification which have such data, so if someone interested in future of parallax, update water textures (hope modders will do changes to most popular water mods).

12 october 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.228 for TES Skyrim. Another improvements to water and fixes.

Updated ENBSeries 0.223 for TES Skyrim without version change. Reduced noise from shadow and changed it's function.

29 september 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.223 for TES Skyrim. Added parameter to disable compression of memory manager to reduce stuttering while objects are loading at cost of memory usage. Removed [CAMERAFX] category from enbseries.ini, added [LENS] category and separate enblens.fx shader with enblensmask image. Removed lens reflection code from enbbloom.fx. Added FieldOfView variable to shaders.

28 september 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.222 for Shadow Warrior. No effects, just game color filter disabled.

27 september 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.221 for TES Skyrim without version change. Did various fixes by requests. Added new parameters for subsurface scattering, it's look will not change any more, so modders can tweak effect freely.

24 september 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.221 for TES Skyrim without version change. Reverted code of subsurface scattering which reduce neck seams of body models, because it give much more visible difference between meshes on the neck when ColorPow is bigger than 1. Also i never paid attention as not expected that bodies are much brighter with facegen and tint color fixes, this unacceptable for lighting calculations. Saturation parameters of subsurface scattering now can be negative to desaturate diffuse texture and give different look of effect.

24 september 2013

Thanks for donation from Jamie Marvel.

22 september 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.221 for TES Skyrim without version change. Changed code of subsurface scattering to reduce neck seams of body models. This may work worse than previous version, but as testers on the forum are passive and only downloading each binary, i'm publishing it.

22 september 2013

Thanks for donation from Robert Mahoney (MinionMaster).

21 september 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.221 for TES Skyrim. Optimized a little subsurface scattering, added quality options of it (require "save" and then "apply" button to be pressed in editor). Added separate parameters of vanilla subsurface scattering control for eyes only. Removed depth of field fix which added in previous version and which not working for some users. Btw, user Mindflux working on subsurface scattering fixes for children and already made sss for wax, check it out.

20 september 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.220 for TES Skyrim. Removed most of fixes for subsurface scattering of previous version as they produce artifacs with many modified bodies and some vanilla hairs. Added another fixes instead. Subsurface scattering effect performance increased.

20 september 2013

Thanks for donation from Damien Briollais.

18 september 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.219 for TES Skyrim. Did various fixes to graphic bugs of detailed shadows, subsurface scattering, ssao, hairs. Subsurface scattering effect still the same as in previous version, only quality fixes applied.

18 september 2013

Thanks for donation from Marcurios.

15 september 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.218 for TES Skyrim. Added subsurface scattering (SSS) effect. It not optimized, better to wait responses regarding it parameters, bugs and functionality, so report on the forum. Data of scattering used from diffuse texture in this version, modders broke vanilla sss textures, so i'll make such map support when some popular body mod will have proper textures.

12 september 2013

Updated ENBoost to version 0.217 compatibility here

11 september 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.217 for TES Skyrim without version change. Fixed sharper depth of field shader bug.

8 september 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.216 for Fallout 3 / New Vegas. Modified edge antialiasing, added memory reducing code from ENBoost.

8 september 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.215 for TES Skyrim without version change. Users prooved their inability to make objective tests with all versions of memory manager and they absolutely ignorant to my recommendations regarding crapware. Tech support for memory optimizations and bug reports is stopped, everything work fine for normal users.

8 september 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.215 for TES Skyrim. Moved [FIX] and [ANTIALIASING] categories from enbseries.ini to enblocal.ini. Added parameter EnableSunGlare which toggling enbsunsprite.fx shader functionality. Added EnableTransparencyAA parameter which enable hardware transparency antialiasing for certain types of objects (grass, hairs) when antialiasing enabled in game video options, otherwise it use slower approximation for antialiasing. Added color correction filters (gamma, brightness, contrast, saturation, balance, etc) to enbeffect.fx file with editable variables in editor. Modified edge antialiasing to affect color differencies, not just edges.

8 september 2013

Added to gallery screenshots of new subsurface scattering in TES Skyrim.

2 september 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.213 for TES Skyrim without version change. Minor changes to temporal antialiasing to reduce it's ghosting with sky on background. Unfortunately all experiments with reducing it's ghosting are failed, clear image data (without any post processing like bloom or dof) is HDR and differencies in intensity between pixels on edges are too high, as result much worse glowing. Perhaps i'll drop temporal antialiasing development.

1 september 2013

Did a poll for temporal antialiasing issues, vote please here.

1 september 2013

Thanks for donation from Colin Bishop and Scott Cegielski.

30 august 2013

Thanks for donation from Tang Hon Loi Simon and Emmi Junkkari.

28 august 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.212 for TES Skyrim. Removed warning message at start which notify than incompatible software detected, instead stopped all tech support for CTDs (crashes to desktop) and freezes. Modified memory manager, it will free memory automatically when frame rate is low and also long freezes replaced by CTDs. Added parameter FixAliasedTextures to reduce aliasing of snow on mountains and other similar objects. Added EnableSubPixelAA parameter which in this version apply supersampling to specular.

17 august 2013

Thanks for donation from Lesslight and Dennis Wirtz.

15 august 2013

Did a poll to understand which version of memory reducing feature is better, 0.202 or 0.201, because results from users differ too much, please vote here

15 august 2013

Published ENBoost patch 0.203 for Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. It's just a patch with memory reducing features from version 0.201 for Skyrim, i don't know if these games suffer from not enough memory, but if it's really important, i'll port code to the graphic mod. ENBoost pages on Nexus are here Fallout 3 Fallout New Vegas

15 august 2013

First testing of 0.202 version give negative results, so wait next update and post on the forum your own results with system specifications.

15 august 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.202 for TES Skyrim. Another tweak of resource manager to reduce stuttering. Report results on the forum (compared to previous version).

15 august 2013

Thanks for donation from Jeroen Fokkema.

14 august 2013

If users of ENBoost will not report issues on the forum with memory reducing feature enabled, i will not have statistics to tweak, understood?

14 august 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.201 for TES Skyrim without version change. Again modified resource manager to reduce stuttering and did workaround for the bug mentioned earlier. Also fixed outline bug which visible with Real Clouds mod in vanilla game.

14 august 2013

Some players have crashes when game loading, the problem was found (thanks to one user who reported), it's happen because quality of textures not set to highest in Skyrim video options, textures passed by engine to d3d have invalid size of buffer. This seems happen only for some mods which use new textures, don't know if it's bug when file saved or it game wrongly interpret size, but i can't detect errors of such textures and the only way to fix at cost of longer loading time and bigger delays when loading new cells, so i'll ignore any future complains regarding such side effects.

14 august 2013

Thanks for donation from Daniel Anderson.

13 august 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.201 for TES Skyrim without version change. Modified resource manager to reduce stuttering, still continue tweaking.

13 august 2013

Thanks for donation from William Osborne.

11 august 2013

Restored v0.200 in download section for those users who have stuttering and don't know how to reduce it or won't wait updates.

11 august 2013

Those users who have stuttering with 0.201 version for Skyrim, modify ReservedMemorySizeMb parameter and assign key to KeyFreeVRAM (simpler in internal editor of ENBSeries). It's a long way of tweaking my memory manager.

11 august 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.201 for TES Skyrim. Added dynamic reallocation to memory reducing code. New parameter DisablePreloadToVRAM allow to skip some issues with loading game when not enough video memory available. Added hotkey to free video memory (by default it's not set, modify [INPUT] category). Memory handling code is new and require statistics to be retrived, so i'll do updates to it from time to time.

11 august 2013

Thanks for donation from Christoph Wander, John Neary.

9 august 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.200 for TES Skyrim without version change. Added memory compression. Dynamic memory unloading not working yet, need to fix bugs with multithreading when fps very low.

5 august 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.200 for TES Skyrim. Memory reducing for 64-bit systems added, fixed fps limiter, screenshot capturing.

5 august 2013

Version 0.200 finished and it include mostly changes for TES Skyrim ENBoost by using memory of 64-bit OS. But i can't release it until testers will help to make fps limiter, which work very slow for some users and without fps limiter game physics produce strange behaviors. If fps limiter do not work for you (fps always constant and lower), visit forum and prepare to test various builds.

5 august 2013

Thanks for donation from Peter Anthoni, Ralf Killenberger.

2 august 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.199 for TES Skyrim. Disabled memory reducing feature for Creation Kit to fix crash. Changed number to key names for [INPUT] category of editor. Removed key for recompilation of shaders as editor have "apply button for that". Added AddDisplaySuperSamplingResolutions parameter which at this moment add one fullscreen resolution x2 times bigger than desktop resolution and if it's selected, game will run in borderless window mode with downsampling (feature is not recommended for non experienced users).

2 august 2013

Thanks for donation from Jeremy Balland, Ross McLean, Conor Cameron, Tom Jobbins, John Ortega.

31 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.198 for TES Skyrim. Improved memory reducing feature, now it should work better for AMD users and probably less stuttering. Not including yet all memory features.

30 july 2013

Almost finished Skyrim ENBoost version with new code for reducing memory usage which should work fast for AMD users (similar to NVidia cards), only making tests of it.

29 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.197 for TES Skyrim. Improved shaders annotations features. Fixed palette bug of previous version and added parameter to all shaders for adaptive quality control.

29 july 2013

Thanks for donation from Charlievoviii.

29 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.196 for TES Skyrim. Added support of shaders annotations to make variables editable with in-game editor. Shaders now can be loaded from "enbseries" folder (previously used for weather system only).

28 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.194 Fallout 3/ New Vegas without version change. Found that memory reducing feature not worked.

28 july 2013

Updated again ENBSeries 0.195 for TES Skyrim without version change. Decided to detach EnableUnsafeMemoryHacks from ReduceSystemMemoryUsage, may be this help to AMD users to reduce stuttering.

28 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.195 for TES Skyrim without version change. Fixed bug of ssao filtering at quality medium or high, decreased noise when adaptive quality working.

27 july 2013

K ENB preset was updated to latest binaries support, available on Nexus.

27 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.195 for TES Skyrim. Added EnableUnsafeMemoryHacks parameter to enblocal.ini config which activate officially unsupported by drivers memory reducing feature, it's invalid, but working as temporary solution. Added adaptive quality parameters which modify some effects if frame rate lower than desired.

26 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.194 Fallout 3/ New Vegas. Many changes, read description. The most important memory reducing and downsampling to simulate supersampling.

26 july 2013

Thanks for donation from Nico Biere.

25 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.193 for TES Skyrim without version change. Decided to disable one of memory modifications, because it's very dirty hack for drivers.

24 july 2013

Added TES Skyrim presets convertion guide to documentation. Users of ENBoost frequently use old versions of the mod, so that article will help easily adopt old presets to new version of the mod.

24 july 2013

Updated again ENBSeries 0.193 for TES Skyrim without version change. Fixed another type of crash at startup when Skyrim Performance Monitor is running.

24 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.193 for TES Skyrim without version change. Fixed crash at startup when Skyrim Performance Monitor is running. Changed behavior of EnableVSync, so it bypass game setting when set to true.

23 july 2013

Crash at startup seems happen because of Skyrim Performance Monitor running, try to set in it compatibility with d3d9 mod.

23 july 2013

Some users have crash at start when 0.193 used and ReduceSystemMemoryUsage=true set. I know what in code cause of this, but it's not because of mod, so testers are welcome on forum. Btw, from posts i found that some users for performance reasons running HiAlgoBoost together with ENBSeries, but my opinion is very negative regarding such usage of my mod, ENBSeries designed for better graphics and those who want performance can turn off most effects or don't use my mod at all. May be i don't understand something and users need similar adaptive quality degradations, but only modifying quality of effects like ssao without touching screen size? Let me know your opinion on the forum.

23 july 2013

Added ENBoost on Nexus web site to make it known to those users who don't use my graphic modification by some reason. I'm bad in propaganda, so this is the only way for me to let it known for conservative players.

22 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.193 for TES Skyrim without version change. Improved stability and performance of memory reducing fixes (thanks to testers), adden parameter DisableDriverMemoryManager which on some systems reduce stuttering when ReduceSystemMemoryUsage=true is set.

22 july 2013

Thanks for donation from Ezekial Altman.

21 july 2013

Sorry, i did a mistake by disabling x64 fix code in 0.193 version for release build. Will publish update soon, right now users testing it.

21 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.193 for TES Skyrim. This version have radical changes compared to previous, some parameters removed from enbseries.ini file and added to enblocal.ini. Also this version contain new type of memory fix (3Gb limit) for 64-bit OS, but previous fix also available (seems it work good only for NVidia cards). Borderless window feature allow to use fake supersampling via downscaling or upscaling for better performance.

20 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.192 for TES Skyrim without version change. Fixed all new bugs, so it can be used now for presets. Memory fix still work good for NVidia cards (but may be some AMD owner will proove i'm wrong?). Don't know should i continue working on memory fix or return to mod itself...

20 july 2013

Found two bugs in version 0.192, one leads to stability issues, another makes screen brighter untill shaders reloaded by apply buttion from gui or backspace hotkey. Second one not yet fixed because everything depends from testers, so i can't update mod till they report results.

20 july 2013

Memory reducing feature seems work only for NVidia cards, several AMD users showed memory usage graphs, they are awful.

19 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.192 for TES Skyrim without version change with bug fixes of previous version. Some new features disabled in this version, because they require radical changes in enbseries.ini for comfortable sharing of presets, so will activate them in next version.

18 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.192 for TES Skyrim without version change. Another version of memory usage reducing.

18 july 2013

Missing textures bug with memory fix of 0.192 version seems occur only for most non vanilla textures, i use official hd texture pack and it work fine, also forum user found the way to fix textures somehow by modifying them, so the goal is to find what is the difference between modified and original. Turned off memory fix makes mod working normally, so you may use it as latest for gaming.

18 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.192 for TES Skyrim without version change. Fixed various color issues. Continue to test memory reducing functionality, seems vanilla game works without issues, but something wrong when mods installed.

17 july 2013

First reports regarding 0.192 are negative, textures missing and darker something. Can't find myself such issues, please report on the forum all possible information, i need to determine dependent mods and configurations, especially important if new feature work for you.

17 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.192 for TES Skyrim. Contain partial fix against game crashes (ctd), i don't recommend to use it when size of video memory is low, 1 gb or greater is fine. Optimized performance, added variable to use mod as speed hack patch without changes to graphics (for users with low end pc). There are other changes, check out readme file. Don't forget to report results on the forum, i don't have any issues and performance is better, but nobody knows yet.

17 july 2013

Have a good news to some users of TES Skyrim who prefer many mods installed and suffer from game crashes. In upcoming version of the mod i reduced that issue, so it appear much more rarely (for me - never) and performance wasn't changed (at least on my hardware). Also to allow users use ENBSeries mod without any graphic changes, did new global variable to turn off everything. New version with UseEffect=false running faster than vanilla game (on my hardware), so it can be used as performance patch also. Did optimizations for reflections, almost twice faster in supersampling mode. Coming soon...

14 july 2013

Just now saw on Nexus post about Skyrim crash when reaching 3 gb limit. This can be solved at cost of performance unfortunately. Forget about generic changes, they all will not work whne you have hi-res textures installed, i know this because of experience in searching large address aware incompabilities and fixing them in game sources, it's very complex task, do not expect it to be fixed by official patch. Well, half year ago already tried that and in 0.096 patch too, the problem was not just lower performance, but the bugs on water surface. Will try again and write here results.

13 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 13.7.13 for TES Skyrim. Purchased modern videocard, so this version is the latest which have optimizations for old videocards of dx9/10 generation, all newest will be optimized for dx11 generation and performance with old videocards will be slower. Small performance improvement of ssao effect for videocard with low memory bandwidth. Did workaround for NVidia 320.xx drivers to fix sun visibility and some other issues, now it work on Win7. Replaced ldr mask texture by hdr texture for enbsunsprite.fx shader, also it's now use color of sun (masked by clouds).

13 july 2013

Thanks for donation from David Pfulg and Hayssam Keilany.

6 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.190 Fallout 3/ New Vegas. Fixed first person objects "transparency" artifact when ssao or shadows enabled, improved quality and performance of ssao of quality -1,0,1.

4 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.189 beta for Witcher 2. Very basic functionality with this version, but for changing post processing it fit well. It's too early to talk about it's modding, everything depends from user's interest to the mod.

4 july 2013

Users reported that driver workaround do not work for them even with same driver version, but differ OS and videocard model. I don't know what the hell is going on.

4 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.188 for TES Skyrim. Did a workaround for latest NVidia drivers which have fix to game bug with depth buffer resolve, now sun is not visible through objects.

3 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.187 for TES Skyrim without version change. Fixed crash with extreme quality of old ssao.

3 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.187 for TES Skyrim. Added ssao/ssil code from version 0.119 and it controlled by new parameter UseOldType, it's a bit faster than latest version and probably better for characters, but not support complex ambient occlusion mode. Fixed bug with not updated parameters via backspace key, now they work at cost of huge delay while pressing reload button.

2 july 2013

Updated ENBSeries 0.186 for TES Skyrim. Fixed bugs with wrong shadowing near objects, ssao artifact when AOAmount is low, reflection artifacts when supersampling enabled. Increased quality of reflections and their performance in supersampling mode.

1 july 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.186 for TES Skyrim. Improved quality of reflections effect and it's performance.

30 june 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.185 for TES Skyrim. Fixed various bugs. Added EnableVSync parameter (turned on by default), added parameter UseDefferedRendering which turned off disable several effects, but performance impact is minimal to allow users with low end videocards to run the mod. Added denoiser 4 for reflections. Optimized performance of various effects, still in progress doing this.

30 june 2013

Thanks for donation from Antrim Geary.

26 june 2013

Added interior and day/night globals to enbeffectprepass.fx and enbbloom.fx (similar to enbeffect.fx).

22 june 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.180 for TES Oblivion. Removed detailed shadows, fixed some bugs (which i have myself). Added shadow blurring for vanilla shadows, this is better than detailed shadows (turn on self shadowing in game video options).

22 june 2013

Thanks for donation from Midhras.

21 june 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.179 for Fallout 3 / New Vegas. Changed drawing closer to fully deffered (at cost of performance) and as result better ssao and shadow mixing code. Also added interior/exterior parameters to shader files (requested).

19 june 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.178 for TES Skyrim. Added lighting from particles.

16 june 2013

14 june 2013

Thanks for donation from Opethfeldt.

14 june 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.175 beta for TES Skyrim. Please test it and report on the forum results. I did a glowing "edges" fix of characters when subsurface scattering greater than 0, not sure if it work properly in all scenario (there are many characters or skinned objects which affected).

11 june 2013

Updated helper mod for TES Skyrim, fixed interior issues. Download it from nexus here. Temporal antialiasing do not work with SLI and Crossfire, it simply can't because of it's nature, so it only give strange artifact and low performance on such configs (i don't recommend dual gpu, SLI/Crossfire hardware for gaming at all).
No testers for Stalker beta, so i stop working on it. Btw Test Drive Unlimited 2 was also expectable fail.

9 june 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.174 beta for STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl. It's very limited by features and only for testing purposes, i don't know what expect from this game on different hardware, so report issues on the forum. Developed on Steam version of the game, latest english.

9 june 2013

I need help from modders who know SKSE plugins programming to develop another helper mod for reading per frame weathers IDs and some other data, because native Skyrim mod do not work for half of users by unknown reason. Contact me via forum.

Published ENBSeries 0.171 beta for TES Skyrim. Added again temporal antialiasing for testing purposes, required helper mod is in folder Data in archive. Code of antialiasing is same flickering as in old test, so ignore quality and artifacts and pay attention to issues with screen stretching or abnormal behavior of some objects and report on forum if such bugs were found.

Published 0.170 beta for TES Skyrim. Added weather editor which allow to create presets depending from game weather. To make it work you need download and install helper mod which is hosted on skyrim nexus here. I'm waiting results of testing on the forum, probably this too much complicated, so welcome with suggestions.

21 may 2013

Published 0.169 beta for TES Skyrim, second try. I don't want to give up just because of damn engine and regret about weeks lost to program new features. Made changes to helper mod which should reduce appearing of bug with level of details, but later i'll make plugin system anyway. Test and report on the forum.

21 may 2013

Failed testing of 0.169 beta for TES Skyrim, helper mod (which is used for getting weather and time data) produce bug with LODs and it can't be fixed as it's game engine issue. I'll revert back all changes or develop plugins support to read data from process directly. I'd like to say thanks to AndyW from bethesda forums, who spend month fighting against engine, but the fools winned.

Published ENBSeries 0.169 beta for TES Skyrim. I advise to backup enbseries.ini, it's only for testing purposes. Write on the forum in download category if this version works properly and if new parameters useful or may be you need more of them. If everything is okay, then in next update i'll add per weather presets with new parameters.

New Skyrim version is almost finished, but because only few old users replied me when asked suggestions about new changes, most of important decisions did myself and it's not my problem any more how complex editing will be of new standart.

Version for Skyrim is in active development, but can't release any other version until i finish it, new features require a lot of changes in existing code.

AMD users reported about non workable ssao effect in GTA 4 version of the mod, solution is to use older and non beta drivers (12.11 was reported as good one). Latest beta have huge performance drop.

Published ENBSeries 0.168 for TES Skyrim. Fixed bug with sun sprite, added custom snow modification support made by Mindflux (density increase). Per weather and game time presets aren't implemented, not decided yet if modders need them.

4 may 2013

Found solution to make useful helper modification for Skyrim which don't work in all conditions because of game engine specific issues. It's simple, i just make effects and optimizations which aren't looks buggy if disabled. Motion blur is not in that list, but temporal antialiasing turned off in some places isn't big problem, right? Another thing with helper mod is weather id and location id detection, it works and i need now to make code to interpolate and trigger presets from list and this is a really huge problem, because per weathers with per locations gives too many combinations, modders can't make them all. With ideas - welcome on the forum. Btw ENBSeries 0.166 for TES Skyrim have a bug with drawing enbsunsprite.fx shader, so ignore it temporary.

27 april 2013

Published ENBSeries 0.166 for TES Skyrim. Minor changes from users reports. Temporal antialiasing removed, because helper mod do not work properly because of multithreaded scripting in game, forget it, i'll search for other solution.

Helper modification for TES Skyrim do not work properly yet, the game engine show up new surprizes with each implementation method of dummy objects. Probably better to forget about motion blur, temporary antialiasing and other dependent effects and to modify what i can (or other games).

ENBSeries for GTA San Andreas, GTA 3, GTA Vice City will no longer supported and i will not continue to develop them. Analyzed statistics of their modern players, it's just wasting of time. These game were between my favorites in the past, but there are other games too.
