TOPIC: [SOLVED] TES Skyrim - Disconnected Shadows

TES Skyrim - Disconnected Shadows 2 years 4 months ago #1

ReShade + SweetFX 2.0 seems to work fine with Skyrim except for the fact that all my shadows are now disconnected from their objects and they move around with the camera. I know there is a lot of bugs as its BETA, but there are no other posts on this issue and I'm wondering if anyone else has gotten the same result. Any ideas?

I honestly never experienced something like this. Are you sure it's not another mod conflicting somehow? =)
Cheers, crosire =)

It could very well be, but the SweetFX 1.5.1 works just fine with my current mod list. I'll have to take a look and figure out which mod conflicts with it.

*edit* I've found the culprit. It was a setting in the skyrimprefsini file called "bDeferredShadows=" that was causing the issue. I change it from bDeferredShadows=1 to bDeferredShadows=0 and the problem was fixed.

I'm having this same problem, however bDeferredShadows=0 fixes it. But in return it makes shadows on grass/trees/shrubs not work properly, so they appear very bright and unnatural.

First of all I want to thank you guys for coming up with the deferred shadows fix. It does work to a degree.

The problem is still visible in caves or ruins where there is fog.

This was very present in the cave when you escape from Helgen.
I'm always learning.

Heyos. I just wanted to let you guys (the reshade people) know I have this problem too, I just had reshade loaded into skyrim without a preset anyhow so it wasn't a problem to just delete it. I didn't have any mods loaded but skse. Oh ya and I use the mediator injector thing with all the sliders, could be relevant. K bye!
