The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Special Edition has been released a few days ago on PC and consoles, allowing those who have never experienced Bethesda's massive role playing game and those who simply wished to experience it in a different way to do so on modern hardware. True to its remaster nature, Skyrim Special Edition still comes with some issues that were found in the original release, but some dedicated players have managed to find some workarounds.
Reddit user HuntBoston1508 recently shared an interesting tweak which allows the Skyrim Special Edition to run at high frame rates. Several reports confirm that this fix works properly without glitches, but it would still be a good idea to back up save files if anything goes wrong.
Here are the values for your refresh rate:
In Skyrim.ini add this line under
fMaxTime=0.0333 is for 30fps, may help performance on slow computers
fMaxTime=0.0166 is for 60fps
fMaxTime=0.0133 is for 75fps
fMaxTime=0.0111 is for 90fps
fMaxTime=0.0083 is for 120fps
fMaxTime=0.0069 is for 144fps
fMaxTime=0.0042 is for 240fps+
iVSyncPresentInterval=0 for Special Edition
On a related note, those playing the Skyrim Special Edition on Xbox One can now enjoy one of the best mods ever created for the game, Falskaar. The mod adds a brand new land featuring 26 new quests, new items, new spells, a new shout and much more.
An entirely new land independent of Tamriel, roughly the size of 2-3 Skyrim holds.
20-30+ hours of gameplay.
26 quests, including a 9 quest long main story, and 17 side quests! (Along with some unmarked content)
New items including new books, recipes, weapons and armors. (A mix of brand new, and retextured)
Two new spells and a new shout.
A bard with several unique new songs.
A soundtrack containing 21 brand new tracks composed by Adamm Khuevrr just for Falskaar, adding more than 60 minutes of new music!
A fully voiced experience, featuring almost 30 semi-professional and professional voice actors and actresses.
Weapons, armor and spells were not the focus of this mod. As such, do not expect grand things in these areas, they are simple little touches to make everything a bit less vanilla.
The Skyrim Special Edition is now available in all regions on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
