Issues fixed[edit]

Black screen or crash on launch[edit]

AMD users: Update display drivers to 18.8.1 or newer[2]

Frame rate drops while using v398.82 or newer display drivers (Nvidia only)[edit]

The latest Nvidia drivers have specific overrides for the game that causes frame rate losses in some areas.[3]
Downgrade drivers to v398.36 (Win10, Win7/8.x).
Use Nvidia Profile Inspector to set 0x0094C538 and 0x105E2A1D to 0x0.
Seems to no longer be the problem with drivers v411.63, possibly several older ones as well.

Low texture resolutions[edit]

The mod fixes low texture resolutions on NPCs, players, armor, and weapons.

Bad CPU utilization[edit]

Download and use the Special K mod.
