I'm not about to read all of this, but I've noted this as most important (I tested hours on the .ini, but I really think everyone should tweak their own .ini):
When I encountered Gates, or in fights, I'd get some serious stuttering, and if I quickly turned to a gate to oblivion, I'd get 100% crash. To solve that, I turned the "shimmering/invisibility effect" to off, forgot the name of it (check www.tweakguides.com)
. Catch is, instead of the invisibility effect of chameleon, the guy dissapears, and instead of the blur/ heat blur effect, I either get nothing(i.e. Gates to Oblivion lose that shimmering/ blur effect around them), or blackness (Soul trap, for example, the hand is hidden in a black sphere). I sort of like those black rings/ spheres, and I definetly
can live without the constant stutters in fights, near portals, and thank god, no more crashes, that thing seemed to cause most.
Outdoors is a killer (with 1920x1200), got the grass density to 130.
That together with the "standard" tweaks that are suggested by "www.tweakguides.com
", I'm playing all max, 1920x1200, with no stuttering or <20 FPS. Hope it helps to some out there, and BTW, 1920x1200 with 4x AA and 4x AF rules ALL!!!
€dit: eh, no HDR, to those that didn't catch it at "4x AA"
