Field of view (FOV)[edit]

  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open Skyrim.ini.
  3. Add the following lines under the [Display] section:
fDefault1stPersonFOV=X
fDefaultWorldFOV=X
Replace X with your preferred FOV.
Console command[4]
  1. Open the console ingame (~) and type in the following: fov X.
  2. Replace X with your preferred FOV.

Notes

This is not permanent, the FOV will reset after restarting the game.

Anisotropic filtering (AF)[edit]

Enable improved AF for Nvidia graphics cards[5]
  1. Open Nvidia Control Panel.
  2. Select Manage 3D settings.
  3. Select Program Settings tab.
  4. Under 1. Select a program to customize: select Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
  5. Under Anisotropic filtering select your quality of preference.
  6. Click Apply and close Nvidia Control Panel.
  7. Open Skyrim Launcher and select OPTIONS.
  8. Under Anisotropic Filtering, in Skyrim Launcher, select Off (best performance) then click OK.

Vertical sync (Vsync)[edit]

Modify configuration file[3]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open SkyrimPrefs.ini.
  3. Change iVSyncPresentInterval=1 to iVSyncPresentInterval=0 to disable Vsync.

Fast Sync tweak[edit]

Instructions[citation needed]
  1. See Vertical sync (Vsync) to disable Vsync.
  2. Enable Fast-Sync through the Nvidia CP for TES V: Skyrim (Nvidia Drivers 368.22 and later).
  3. Limit or cap the frame rate with Nvidia Profile Inspector to 60 FPS.

Notes

This reduce "input lag" as well as eliminates the screen tearing that would occur when playing with v-sync normally off.
This is only suitable for certain PC configurations: ie. 60 Hz monitor with a high-end GPU which is able to render TES V: Skyrim over 60 FPS constantly.

Frame rate (FPS)[edit]

Nvidia have added a FPS cap fail-safe to the game. Use Nvidia Profile Inspector to disable FPS cap.
These tweaks allow playing the game at high frame rates without the known physics problems that occur. It is possible this fix will negatively affect scripts and cause unforeseen issues. Use at your own risk.
Automatically fix high FPS physics[6]
This method has the advantage of preventing FPS drops caused by the game not being able to achieve the target FPS.
  1. Install SKSE.
  2. Install the SKSE Havok Fix mod.

Notes

The plugin will automatically edit iPresentInterval to an appropriate value for the current FPS.
Manually fix high FPS physics[2]
  1. Go to the configuration file(s) location.
  2. Open Skyrim.ini.
  3. Under section [Display] add line iPresentInterval=0
  4. Add the section [HAVOK] and under it add line fMaxTime=(1 / Desired refresh rate) to correct the physics, e.g. for a 144 Hz monitor you would add fMaxTime=0.0069.

Notes

Skyrim must still be limited to the new refresh rate in order to avoid glitches

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/933480/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (933480) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
