Enjoy. Feel free to add/edit, just so long as you really know what you're doing, and have personally tested and verified your tweaks. Alternately you can just make suggestions here and I'll test myself.

One might also want to try changing bMouseAcceleration=1 to 0 if disabling VSync didn't do enough to correct erratic mouse movements.


I'm trying an FOV of 80 when I get home. I've always used 90 in everything else and been delighted with it, but in Skyrim I can see through my shoulder when looking low with a bow in hand.

I am having issues with the PC where the game crashes to desktop.

I searched online and it seems the only proper cause is sound issues. i followed the instructions to fix those to no avail.

Mind you, I have the latest drivers for my VGA and the game runs awesome, until it crashes randomly.

Would appreciate any input of anyone who could solve this issue

I know it's an odd request, but is there any way to just turn shadows off? I'd like to know I have that option.

Can't approve of this since I'm not playing on the PC, but this thread that I just read displays the ability to disable shadows. Might want to have Vendetta, the thread's creator, confirm that for you just in case.

You can turn off the shadows. Just open SkyrimPrefs.ini with notepad and change iShadowMapResolution=(#) to 0. You'll be better off just turning shadows down to low, however; removing them completely only hurts your FPS.

Anyone know if you can run a series of console commands from a text (or batch) file?

For example: Toggle the in-game HUD/menus on/off and to take a screen shots.

Hey, I'm having issues trying to change this stuff in my .ini file. I have the right one but when I try to save it tells me my access to the save location is denied. Any solutions would be appreciated, these mouse issues are incredibly irritating. . .

If it's a crash on startup, set your sample rate to 44100Hz. A fix for this will be implemented Wednesday about.

Does anyone know how to get rid of the access denied screen? I've had it come up for 5 days and I can't get rid of it. Please help.

They are still working out the bugs in Skyrim with such a complex platform and extensive world we knew there would be things to find out once the load increased on the platform and it has. The new patch has helped a lot of things but also introduced a new bug so tweaking is a matter of waiting a bit too as well as doing what you can. They will keep on it.
