I don't know why, but it seems that when my character is moving (or when camera is moving as well), instead of my character's shadow, under it, EVERYTHING in the radius of fShadowDIstance is in one giant shadow. When the character and camera are perfectly still, everything renders normally. As soon as I move in any way, BAM, 10k radius of darkness.

 

I've tried pretty much all settings for ENB ingame and none did anything with it, which makes me thing it's either faulty INI settings  (which is weird because I'm using BETHini), or some mod that's causing the effect.

 

Mods affecting camera in my load order:

3PCO

Customizable camera

 

Mods affecting ENB/lights:

NAT

Natural Realistic ENB (for NAT)

Skyrim Particle Patch for ENB SSE

ENB Light

 

To see the effect, here are some screens

Perfectly still:

Moving character/camera:

I've run BETHini again just to be sure but it's still there. Tried stripping my character of all equipped items, tried disabling ENB Light, changing weather, ingame time, ENB settings, save reload, restarting game, zoning in and out,... it's downright unplayable with this bug.

 

I think I'm gonna try a different ENB preset or different ENB version next, but after that I'm out of ideas...

It's happening on and off, never seem to have the same conditions to appear - otherwise I'd pinpoint it already.

 

I can play for 12 hours straight, but if I change ANY setting, the next time I turn on skyrim sse, the shadows are glitching out like this.

 

Removing and reinstalling ENB seems to fix it - until I change (and save) anything - then the next time I launch the game it does this.

 

So I'm thinking it might be one of the ENB settings that I'm turning on that doesn't actually update in a running game, but rather when you restart it. Anyone got tips? Well worst case scenario I'll just keep turning them on one by one till I find what's causing this - unless it's a COMBINATION of 2+ options, then I'm not sure

 

Edit: well.... last 3 times the issue was fixed (for a couple hours at least) when I reinstalled ENB. Now, not so much. The shadows (AND light) are glitching out like mad, and sometimes all shadows are cast in THE WRONG DIRECTION (aka shadows facing sun, lighted parts are facing AWAY from sun ffs) or there's just that big-ass 10k radius shadow over everything. I'm getting ready to fcking delete the whole clusterfck that is Skyrim and never touch it again with a 10m pole.

 

Edit2: FFS! I removed ENB completely and launched game. Guess what? Shadows still flicker - when I'm still, they look normal, when moving, they face the WRONG DIRECTION (as if the sun was on the opposite side - so in the morning/evening shadows are cast TOWARD SUN, while during the day EVERYTHING is in shadow because the sun is apparently UNDERGROUND. Oh god wtf, which effin mod reverses the direction of sunlight? :S

Nobody? I'm still getting this randomly, and when I do, it's helluva hard to get it working again.

 

I've tried different ENBs, different lighting mod combinations, different weather mods.... nothing seems to have a real effect. It just randomly appears and randomly disappears between game sessions...
