    It just dips on specific places, ie once you enter Whiterun and stand at the entrance with your view pointed towards the dragon reach castle, even though my frames are 60 anywhere else it will dip down to 40-50ish if I did that. And another place is at riverwood just on the exit where the road leads to whiterun, stand behind the entrance and look towards the town and you'll notice the dip there too, I have shadows on high when I put it to ultra there are more fluctuations in frames.

    40-50 is still OK for a dip in my book. Skyrim runs like crap on my system, going from 100fps to teens at places where I least expect it.

    EDIT: Here Lydia shows her brains. Gameplay video.

    It's been annoying me that a good bit of ini tweaks are for entries that aren't even in my ini. Like Mouse acceleration. I added it and turned it off but the entry didn't even exist. Same for some of the shadow options. Which reminds me I'm pretty sure this game hits the 470/570 memory limit pretty easy. Turn shadows up to 8192 and you'll drop to 5 fps. Do it with AF or AA off and it'll work fine. For the record 8192 won't fix the shadows. You still have to pick between shit shadows up close, in the distance, or all over. Can't have it all with this deferred rendering crap.

    She looked in her buffs and it did show it. She got it right away, you might get some sort of natural resistance with level?

    Even the low sat was a bit blueish for me, brightness didn't solve that so I played with the INI. Still got a good amount of sat, but the blue is gone. If anyone wants to try it out, just copy and past the parts in the spoilers below over your info and give it a shot.

    Damn. I've lost hundreds of health from this one werewolf and still nothing. Idk about a natural resistance, but I certainly don't have any race or item traits giving me any.

    Do you recall where this werewolf was that attacked her? I'm 'fighting' one
    of the caged up ones in the final Silver Hand base (companion questline, but I'm not actually with the companions or doing a quest)
    and nothing has happened in the last while I've been taking a beating.

    I think she just fought a flat out wolf.

    Does said mod only show the sweet spot after you find it, or does it just show it right off the bat?

    Eh, I would use it if it showed it once I found that spot. Hopefully they add that option later.

    OK I got another video showcasing a case of consolitis-induced glitch, and a quest help question in spoiler tags.

    In the Treva's Watch quest, where I fight silver hand members inside a castle owned by some people who can't get back in, where is the lever to get the gate opened? I have killed everyone, looked everywhere (so I believe) and can't find a lever to open the damn gate...

    And for the consolitis + glitch:

    I had a similar incident. Eventually I just went forward, shot the floor plate with an arrow while she was recovering, she was finally able to get past it without being smacked by the stupid trap.

    Here's a glitch I found last night:

    Just opening and closing the skeletons' inventory, was increasing the quantity of the book it had. I eventually gave up around 75, then sold them for a good sum and used that sum to finish my blacksmithy skill.
    by making iron daggers and leather bracers; easily maxes the skill very quickly and cheaply

    Currently not very happy with the controls. Graphics are great, but could have been better IMO.
    Also how do I set it to play as a 3rd person?

    works perfect with a Logitech F510 as well (also works fine with rumblepad 2 + X360 pad emulator). Movement is more fluid vs the keyboard (analog movement and camera), but no hotkeys and aiming with a bow is challenging :D
