Turn off any on-screen display programs and monitoring tools such as ATI Tray Tools, GPU-Z, XFire etc. (No issues reported with Fraps, so you can use it without any problem. If you are using MSI Afterburner you need to configure it in the way listed in this guide.)
Not all the DirectX 9 files are automatically installed with Win8, in order to make RCRN work properly you need to follow the following steps:
1) Download this DirectX runtime component from the official microsoft website: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109 2) Save the file. 3) Right Click, run as Administrator 4) unpack to somewhere you can get to easily (suggest c:\DX, since if you unpack it to the desktop it will dump like 200 files onto your desktop – voice of experience) 5) Open the location you unpacked the files to and right click DXSTEUP.EXE and run as Administrator. This will install all of the 64bit and SYSWOW64 files for DX 9 and DX 10. 6) Run RCRN, now everything should work properly!
Since v3.0 you can enable/disable FXAA via the provided RCRN Customizer, a link to it will be placed on your desktop just after installation.
Since v3.5 the RCRN Customizer is available and installed by default also for Steam Workshop users, a link to it will be placed on your desktop just after installation, you can enable/disable FXAA simply by toggling on/off the FXAA button.
Since v3.5 you can enable/disable Sharpening via the provided RCRN Customizer, a link to it will be placed on your desktop just after installation.
Since v3.5 the RCRN Customizer is available and installed by default also for Steam Workshop users, a link to it will be placed on your desktop just after installation, you can enable/disable Sharpening simply by toggling on/off the Sharpening button.
This happens because you are using RCRN over a system that uses Nvidia Optimus.
IF YOU ARE USING RCRN AE:
Simply tick the OptimusFix option in the RCRN Customizer.
IF YOU ARE USING RCRN for WORKSHOP:
In order to avoid that issue, after the installation of RCRN please download & install our Optimus compatibility patch, you can find it into our download area, under the “Workshop only files” section.
Yes, it is a false positive, all the RCRN files are certified by SkyrimNexus and nothing harmulf lay in them, usually this kind of “false positive” occur when the combo of UAC + Avast is enabled, and happens because the Autoinstaller program lack of the Windows Certification (we obviously cant afford the Microsoft Certification because of the cost). Anyway we already reported the issue to Avast, so we hope for a fast solution.
If you don’t trust the Autoinstaller you can always use the manual installation of RCRN and do all the steps by your self!
The RCRN .esp files need to be placed always at the bottom of your load order, the only exception is if you are using ELFX, in this case ELFX needs to be loaded after RCRN.
Here is the .esp queue: rcrnShaders.esp
RCRNdgdb.esp (or RCRNdawnguard.esp/RCRNdragonborn.esp, this .esp may change name in relation to your installed DLCs)
RCRNvolumetric.esp (if used)
ELFX.esp (if ELFX is installed)
This is NOT RELATED TO RCRN, it’s a Skyrim engine bug, usually you can avoid it by setting fFlickeringLightDistance=4096 or fFlickeringLightDistance=8192 into your Skyrim.ini under the [General] section.
This is NOT RELATED TO RCRN, it’s a Skyrim engine bug, there are several emitters without any light source attached to them, this happens because there is an engine limit to the displayable light sources.
