My screenshots are using his tweaks though. My own tweaks mostly caused weird graphical glitches so I didn't post screenshots.

yes but its all trial and error lol. thus your trials and the games errors helped move us forward, to not make the same errors. Saving time in the long run and helping speed up the ini tweakage process. =)

Probably... Im pretty sure they are identical except that the PC version has editable .ini files.

Maybe emptying the row:

SIntroSequence=bethesda softworks HD720p.bik,2k games.bik,game studios.bik,Oblivion Legal.bik

Gets rid of the intros...? :P

I also think that using ; before line makes it a comment - game ignores that line. That way you could leave the original settings commented, and copypaste new, tweaked settings under them...

Anyways, I guess the key to fixing the LOD issues lies under [LOD], if lod settings are really the cause of that blurry mess in the distance.

Maybe try altering iLODTextureSizePow2=8 and look what happens I wish I had the game already.

Probably.

Removing the intro videos is one of the first things I do when I install a game. I hate having to wait or hit enter 15 times to get to the main menu. Plus, it has to use up a crap load of ram loading all of those videos at launch.

Yeah, actually, I misread the NOTE. I was only using the uGridsToLoad tweak so I was wondering why mine looked pretty good if there was a major issue. I hadn't tried the other tweak yet.

I agree, having that parameter as a slider would have been a really nice touch.

Edit: Nevermind, I think I was using the bad tweak. To tell you the truth, I've changed so much I'm not sure but I think I did. I'm starting over now.

uGridsToLoad=5 changed to
uGridsToLoad=10

and

uNumDepthGrids=3 changed to
uNumDepthGrids=1

is close but not there yet. The water reflections of uNumDepthGrids=1 don't match uGridsToLoad=10

I've tried messing around but can't seem to get it to line up right... so close!

Using something less than uGridsToLoad=10 gets it closer and seems almost to be a good compromise.

Any help?

Yeah, it has been tough I think. A lot of the options that you think would be the ones to change, don't seem to have any obvious impact.
