    iphone and android both have easy to do 'hacks' to make it work. it doesnt matter so long as you DO get it working.


    its quite useful for me, as it really is my backup net - i'm moving house, so i'll be living on 3G for a week or two.

    I wonder if anyone can make a mod for spell fatalities or bow fatalities?

    Here is my Level 25 Khajiit Thief. I have only done 2 main quest and a total of 7 misc. quest. All I do is grind my smithing skills.

    Just pic of my character but i still put it in spoilers. TPU should make a button that you can click to make a spoiler, like the html/wrap coding stuff. it gets annoying having to type in [spoiler [/spoiler]

    LOL!!!



    And when I get home I'll post a screenshot of my purple trees. At least I got a screenshot because they never appeared again. They were beautiful (no I'm not being sarcastic) if the game was even more fantasy oriented they'd have fit in perfectly!

    Just a tip for anyone who wants to mod, or for those that don't think adding a few mods will matter much. Everyone should be getting http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=131
    I used the low saturation one and it looks great. And heres a before/after screens to show the massive different, just look at how much more the texture stands out on absolutely everything. Also if the colors or AA effects are too much (or not enough) for you, you can adjust them all. It's a really handy mod.

    I don't know if anyone answered and I'm not even sure we are talking about the same rings but here you go.
    there are figures of a snake, hawk and a dolphin on the walls. Turn around and you will see them

    Same dungeon, different part;

    Open your inventory and look at the Golden Claw, the combination is on the inside of it.

    best bug i had was when it started raining rabbits, they spawned in the sky and fell into the ocean, and when i swam in to check for corpses they were running (no swim animation!) on the ocean floor.

    best shot i got of one... its mid jump so it looks like it was swimming, but it wasnt.

    Mussels some words require more souls than others. try ganking another dragon and see if it unlocks.

    figured it out, the "press R to unlock" just wasnt displaying til i restarted the game *shrug*


    thats what i get for having it running minimised since launch day and waking the PC from sleep mode to continue i guess.

    Kurgan - I can't seem to get the low saturation mod working. Do you have to run in dx9? I always fail at getting mods to work lol :)

    Yeah it looks great, the color tint is a bit blue for me, so I'm going to try tweaking that. Nice that it allows you to tweak it to perfection, and I didn't notice a performance hit from using it either.

    I'm running Skyrim on my OC'd Q6700 @ 3.3 (mobo limit) and 4850 X2 with CFX disabled at 710/2000 on GPU. 1680x1050 All High no AA, except shadows set to Low.

    This game is amazing! It runs really well, usually sits at 60fps. It's so much smoother than Oblivion and that game ran at over 100fps outdoors for me maxed. Oblivion had a lot of framerate hitching outdoors for me on every sys I ran it on.

    I haven't beat Skyrim yet, but I just made my second character, a dark Khajiit named Gankin-Ya who I've been using since the Morrowind days. Guess what he's doing? lol

    This game was so worth the wait, IMHO. I've been burned out on FPS since 2002 and I despised Neverwinter Nights 1/2 and the Dragon Ages. This game aint anywhere near perfect, but it sure tries hard!

    Wondering if there is anyway to disable the UI to take some screens. Just snapped these

    and think it would have looked even more amazing (maybe an ice desktop) if the UI hadn't been visible.

    Yeah run it in DX9, I don't think the game actually uses any DX10 effects, but I could be wrong.

    you can toggle UI on and off by typing "tm" in the console without the "

    I don't know if this has been brought up before but my game just keeps crashing when i try to load it. It gets as far as the main menu then crashes. has anyone had this problem as well or know how to fix it and or how to back up saved data? I might just have to reinstall the game 8(.
