    I see you have SLI,,,did you get it to work in this game? If I set it to SLI I get much lower frame rates.

    Alt-tabbed while in a mine and when i tabbed back in the Refresh Rate had been reset (I use Halved to get the 60fps lock) and I was enjoying 120fps goodness. The difference between 60 and 120 is so huge. But since it would mess with the physics engine I had to restart the game.

    Is there a way to use your old save files? Old and new versions are un-MOD-ed. Copied the files, but cannot see them ingame..

    Yea I have a G-Sync monitor with 144hz. I had to play the old version at 60FPS locked which drove me mad. Is there any way around this?

    yeah well iv added the SMIM along with the unofficial patch. that's how
    you should start the game. looks great.

    one thing that gave me a strange feeling - the DoF in the new SE.
    iv disabled\lowered it completely and now its alright.
    for some reason DoF in Skyrim SE looks blurry \ strange to me. maybe
    its nothing ;/

    Been playing this for a couple of days now and I have to say I do not like the new saturated colours at all. The exteriors are far too yellow, far too blue, or a ridiculous oversaturated orange at sunset and sunrise. I realise that Bethesda obviously wanted to change the feel of the game world to be more 'fantasy' like, but I think they went WAY over the top, because it looks like a bloody cartoon now. I'm just grateful that it was a free upgrade!

    Many of the new features, God Rays, DOF, 64bit stability and the dungeon interior lighting are great, but until some clever mod author will come up with a Reshade, or ENB that restores the more natural look of the original game's exterior lighting, I'll stick with the 2011 version!

    well i played a heavily modded Skyrim like many of us.. and i think that the
    SE looks more realistic when it comes to colors. the vanilla with mods looked
    alright but the "more darker theme" you talk about was actually a simple,
    too dark version of the game. i understand what ur saying about the
    heavy colors.. but that's the point - its more realistic. bright colors in the dark
    ( "northern" sky colors for example ) now have beautiful and deep colors, godrays
    helps a lot.. i think you should turn off DoF completely and lower a bit
    the brightness and give it another try. you might be surprised :)

    Yeah, I know some see it as more realistic and prefer it over the original which is fine of course. Hey but that's diversity for ya. If everyone agreed with everyone else over everything, the world would be really boring! ;) I've heard a few people claim it's more 'fantasy' looking, which is, by definition really, not going to be realistic.

    Thanks for the suggestions coc, but I've already lowered the brightness and I'm fine with the DOF. I never actually used ENBs with the original at all. I liked it the way it came out of the box. It's just these new colours that I hate.

    Found it. Just if anyone is wondering - you need to select "show all saves" in the main menu..

    No i tried the profile flags from Fallout 4 and saw lower fps too. It seems Nvidia will need to put out a profile for this.

    I would hope we get an SLI profile soon... All the other Bethesda games have SLI support.

    Is there a compatible mod to make character textures better? They look damn ugly! Guess old mods wont work?

    I tried a few 4K texture mods and they work kinda... I think they changed some stuff with the textures and one of the Character textures I tried made their skin look very weird.

    Mods from the original game can be installed manually, however they might cause issues. Thus far I only tried something that just replaces textures, nothing with .esp files.

    I played for 5 hours with my old save, no crashes.

    I used a bare minimum number of mods before as well, mostly graphical stuff.

    I'm in love with the new Reshade, now i can disable the crappy stuff that makes everything too dark.

    Can't believe people find that "realistic" looking... no offense!

    I've got 15 hours with an old save (level 52 or so) that had many mods added and deleted over the many hours of playtime. It used to crash periodically in old Skyrim. No crashes yet in SSE.
