    Just did some further testing, and yeah... the drivers seem to fix part of the Crossfire problem... Meaning at least now it's scaling a little better than single card config...

    But definitly, either we're gonna need a new CAP or we need to hope that the Patch is improve performance... But if you ask me, I've got a feeling we're gonna have to wait for a while before proper crossfire performance in this game...

    Because clearly, it is a "console port"... This time, a very fun one... but still a port with lots of issues regarding CPU and GPU scaling optimizations...

    Before you enter any towns or interact with any friendly NPCs you need to feed to lower your thirst for blood.
    An easy way to do this if you are at stage 4 is to talk to a follower, and get them to sleep in a bed, then feed on them while they are sleeping. Or, you can sneak into town after dark and feed on a random sleeping townsperson.

    If you go into town with stage 4 Vampirism, you will automatically be attacked by everyone on sight.

    Anyone else tried the ole tweaks
    bUseThreadedBlood=1

    bUseThreadedMorpher=1

    bUseThreadedTempEffects=1

    bUseThreadedParticleSystem=1

    bUseMultiThreadedTrees=1

    bUseMultiThreadedFaceGen=1

    iNumHavokThreads=5

    iThreads=9
    ?

    Trying them at the moment, they don't cause any issues, and frame rate seems a bit better.

    Places where I was getting 28 am getting 35 fps and places where I got 45 I'm getting 60! :D

    Although could be something else I've twiddled with, anyone else care to try? Put them under general in skyrimprefs.

    I haven't really checked out if you can be both a vampire and a werewolf. :laugh:

    EDIT: Oh, you can't. :laugh:

    Due to Oblivion and being a vampire for a bit, I decided to never be one in Skyrim, so when I was infected I made sure I downed a cure disease potion.

    Personally its kind of hard to complain, because I have always had iffy performance in Oblivion and the new sound card only made the known stutter when background music chances issue even worse.

    With Skyrim I have very little issues with performance in comparison
    As for the bugs across the spectrum in the game, from what I read this is true.
    Some save bug issue on PS3 and a fair few identical issues with XBOX360 & PC.

    Thanks, perhaps my performance increase happened because the CPU was bottlenecking my system quite a bit.

    GPU usage in town has gone from 33% to 77%

    Not all of that is from the tweaks though, I've over-clocked an extra 300mhz as well but that only accounted for some of that increase.

    I tried the tweaks, there were some improvements, around 5fps.

    I sometimes get stuck talking to people, tab won't close the chat log with them. I just randomly mash keys on my keyboard and usually I disconnect in a few seconds.

    Time to use some commands. Or like said, just feed and go back to stage 1, you won't be attacked during stage 1 or 2, stage 3 people will no longer initiate conversations with you (but you can still talk to them), and 4 you are KOS.

    I been using these

    iNumHWThreads=4
    iRenderingThread2HWThread=1
    iRenderingThread1HWThread=0
    iHWThread6=5
    iHWThread5=5
    iHWThread4=5
    iHWThread3=4
    iHWThread2=4
    iHWThread1=4
    iRenderingThread2HWThread=1
    iRenderingThread1HWThread=0
    bMultiThreadMovement=1
    iAIThread2HWThread=5
    iAIThread1HWThread=3
    bUseThreadedMorpher=1
    bUseThreadedParticleSystem=1
    bUseThreadedTempEffects=1

    in my Skyrim.ini, I seen no change, but left them since they caused no issues. Maybe I'll toss them into SkyrimPrefs and try them there and see if it gives a gain.

    Hmmm, I downloaded the 11.11b driver which is supposed to fix CF for Skyrim, but after reading all this and all this.... I don't think I'm installing it!

    I mean, everybody who is using it is getting graphic corruption? :eek:

    Well my character is too OP now, got 80% less mana to cast destruction in full daedric armor (legendary) so I've switched to Master difficulty again from Expert an elder dragon showed up and one shot me with his breath, going to have an epic battle!

    Yeah I'd personally just wait for Bethesda's patch first although crossfire really does work and it might be worth just to see if you get a big enough performance jump to justify the corruptions since it's only sometimes that it happens.
