That motion blur is actually what Hialgo is doing. Lowers the screen resolution when moving to make it run smoother (just not necessarily prettier).
However, the lag spike is not what should happen (should be the opposite, really). Do you have the same issue when not using Hialgo?
Thank you for the quick reply.
Nope. But instead of the extreme motion sickness, it is choppy, clippy, and laggy.
However, some areas (Whiterun, College of Winterhold, and Riften) are only playable withOUT Hialgo and actually run quite smoothly without it.
I've disabled every texture enhancing mod, installed several reduced texture mods, completely deleted and reinstalled Skyrim + all mods, and can still only play on Low Settings (and barely at that).
These are my (crappy, I know) specs:
Windows 7 64bit
AMD Phenom II X2 521 3.50 GHz
4 Gb RAM
Nvidia GeForce 9400 GT 1 Gb VRAM
If I save up for an AMD 5970 2 Gb and get 8 Gb of RAM, do you think that will help?
Or maybe you have a better idea of a graphics card?
