    Something to think about when I get a better card, thanks for that mate. Mine doesn't look too shabby with vanilla settings and it's playing well so I'll leave it alone right now (scared) :)

    custom fov just for the screenshots which is why they look a wee bit stretched :)


    @ ElMayo - good luck with the replacement bud. Touches wood - so far my xfx hd5770 has been great for what it is.

    Well I've been getting the occasional more often than should, just froze the fucking PC this time CTD, generally when I quicksave. I've learned to never use Steam overlay while I'm in a menu that requires TAB to get back out of since it likes breaking.
    Actors (deer especially) like running out of my field of vision yet when they do they freeze in place and become invincible until I move much closer :wtf:

    This is obviously still the gamebyro engine (albeit heavily modified), but they managed to breathe new life into it which is a massive plus.

    Went around killing some poor bastards to attract the Dark Brotherhood (stealth/dual blade/archer character).. Oh I attracted them alright, just not in the way I wanted -_-

    Found this on my would-be murderer: [​IMG]

    Overall, loving the game. GG Bethesda :toast:

    Whats a good way to skill up in conjuration? My atronach killed an entire dungeon and it did nothing to my skill. Simply spawning doesn't seem to do anything either as far as I can tell. Seems random at best? :S

    Using bound weapons is probably the fasted to level up conj. Your summon has to get the killing blow on quite a lot of things higher level than it to skill up

    Yeah same lol. I was at the point where my bags were full of iron and leather and I was over encumbered, I'm still too poor to buy a house so I put it in some closet. I hope no one steals it :( I have the sword of whiterun in there!

    You should be able to play on high with 2x AF and get 60fps

    Try turning off the auto save on Character menu feature?
    And just use regular saves if it crashes. xD

    You're right I can but I choose to play it all ultra with AA/16AF and shadows down to high with the fps locked at 40. It's still uber smooth and looks much, much better :) What can I say, I'm an eye candy whore.

    You have to click the game twice, Alt+Tab once > Click on game > Alt+Tab again> Click on game again and it should show up.


    Also my 11.10 driver also doesn't have Mip Map settings, not sure what is going on.

    You can get this mod: http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=4 it's like that mod for Fallout 3/NV that lets you play in a "false fullscreen"

    2 things I found useful for carrying items. One is to go to get the "steed" enhancement from those random stones scattered around - the steed one's removed all speed effects due to armour and lets me carry a ton more stuff, there's also rings you can get to improve stamina and carrying capacity.

    The other thing I use to carry stuff is:
    my bodyguard (she can carry a decent amount of stuff for me)- if I give her good weapons and armour to carry she uses it, so it's win/win.

    After killing my second dragon, I go to unlock a shout and get "A Dragon's soul is needed to unlock a shout" while the bottom right of my screen reads "1 Dragon Soul"... :wtf:

    Random traders seem to stock them but in a very small quantity (I have about 50 from locked chests, but I find them pretty easy to pick so dont break picks often). I guess if it is like Oblivion the best place is in the thives guild.

    WHAT? Hopefully Nvidia gets a better driver release out to fix this issue and fast.
