Thanks for the update, and your rig info.

I'm running a AMD Phenom 6 core 2.82
6 gig memory, 1600
GTX-460 OC 1gb onboard
Same drivers from Nvidia

May just work the same for me.

It's the little things like this that make playing Skyrim all but even better!

Thanks mate.

I can't find the "bMouseAcceleration=" in the .INI file and I tried using the notepads search function but it cant find it which means it's not there. So is it safe for me to just add that line? If so under which section should I add it too? I am guessing that that option would be under the controls section right? Or do I just add it anywhere and let the game sort it out?

I don't see any difference between the screens.

Yes, you can add it without problems.

@samuelc
Give a closer look, maybe the website transition effect prevents you from spotting the differences, but definitely there are some.

@samuelc-

It's very subtle, but the best place to look is in the bottom right hand of the screenshot, at the shadow cast by the tree. The default shot has a flat appearance and the edges of the shadow are unnaturally soft, perhaps even a tad blurred. The enhanced shot has a more well defined appearance and the lighting is night and day (no pun intended), looking exactly like what a shadow cast from that type of source would look like. West Coast Cali here, no Skyrim yet for me, but will do these tweaks when I finally get my copy. Ahhh giddy with excitement like a little girl. Nice screenshots, TheCompiler.

Not so good for me. massive fps drops in forested areas.

I left the water alone as it was chugging my system already but the trees definitely look better. Thanks.

On a related topic, It's be good if we can find a way to darken the shadows/shadowy areas in the game. They don't look dark enough to me and makes the game look kinda flat

Tried all the tweaks. Landscape looks subtly better, but the water is a big improvement. No noticeable FPS hit yet (running on an ATI 6970). Now we just need someone to work on some hi res LOD textures, the vanilla ones are bleh.
