How do I disable the smooth mouse settings?
Go to your Steam Directory -> steamapps -> common -> skyrim -> Skyrim
Create a backup of the SkyrimPrefs.ini file
Open the file, then scroll down to where it says [Controls] and find bMouseAcceleration=1
Change to bMouseAcceleration=0
Save, exit, and play

did you do the austrailian vpn thing?

I pretty much assumed that we would have to wait for the modders to get their hands on the dev kit for high res textures and stuff before we have the soul crushing experience that morrowind and oblivion laid on our systems (well mine at least at the times)

I guess that it's good though that it's not terribly demanding. That means I can hook up my rig to my 50" plasma and jack the AA/AF settings through the roof with nvidia inspector since it's only running at 720p.

How does the game play with a 360 game pad?
