The Bright.

Greetings there, dear traveler!?

 

Almost five (six?) months had passed, and this place was more dead than alive, but there were reasons for that.

Long story short - I updated my graphics card (again -_-), and Skyrim refused to work as I wanted, then I tried to fix this and that, but broke everything completely.

In the end, I found myself in hysterically installing " The Special Edition" , which, in general, ended up pretty well, I must say.
So, what i'm actually trying to tell you, that I would love to liven up this place a bit.
Are you with me on this quest? ^_^


 

UPD: must warn you, now resolution is a bit higher, and it might take a little more time to load ^_^
UPD2: You will notice that this is far from where we left off last time. Re-presentation? Re-imagining? REMAKE?!
I would love to say no. 
But yes. 


Please consider this as a new beginning, with a little of the same characters but a new story, that is not related to my previous work.

As usual, very fine editing work!? Loading time is definitely a bit of a change, had to reload the page twice to get all the jpegs loaded correctly, but that is something that happens a lot for me with story blogs (but not with your past entries I've read.) I think it's a fair tradeoff for the quality personally. Your game looks more crisp after the change as well. Overall I'd say its a good change in my opinion and I hope it continues to go smooth for you.?

SE now huh? I was tempted to say "Welcome to the future" ... but then remembered this is Skyrim. ?

Anhyhow, nice work and promising 'restart', looking forward to the next chapter.



Ok, now we just need @Miauzi and I think the usual German crowd commented here. ;)

SE jetzt, oder? Ich war versucht, „Willkommen in der Zukunft“ zu sagen ... aber dann fiel mir ein, dass dies Skyrim ist. ?

Wie auch immer, gute Arbeit und ein vielversprechender „Neustart“, ich freue mich auf das nächste Kapitel.



Ok, jetzt brauchen wir nur noch @Miauzi und ich denke, das übliche deutsche Publikum hat hier kommentiert. ;)

 

She currently has writer's block and is busy with the "Kerbal" space flight to clear her head.

I tried to keep  each image within 2.5 MB, not sure why this is happening, it shouldn't take so long to load, maybe because of I used a different image host in the past, that might be the issue. I'm still experimenting with this.

Starting again huh.... yeah I know the feeling but you have a great cum back I mean come back for sure. Nice work with the girls they are very hot. These images are of very high quality not to mention your game textures are quite up there. Even though I have fast internet the images took a while to load I'm surprised no one so far had trouble or they didn't mention it. I noticed you using vanilla hair for the guys. There is Botox for Men on nexus you can use it just replaces the hair and I use it and it covers a lot of the npcs even enemies. :sweat_smile::heart:;):thumbsup:

Thanks! 

Tho I'm still trying to figure out why it takes so long, and it seems more like imgbox problem than anything else.

And considering male assets, I'm slowly moding one thing at a time, and when I get to create a unique male characters I would definitely stick to your advice! Thanks again!

Nice reboot!

 

What was the issue with getting LE to run? I'm sure there must be a solution somewhere. If All my custom stuff wasn't for SE and the various DLCs for LE weren't so stupidly overpriced on steam I'd definitely use LE for stories. It just looks so much nicer.

I looked at one image and it was around 5mb ?. Personally I found a bit less image quality was worth it for faster load times. I started resizing my images to 1920x1080 and I haven't had anyone complain about the smaller images. 

 

Load time here wasn't awful for me but I did have to stop and wait for an image to finish loading once or twice.

Well, it all started with my arrogant ass wanting better visuals for TTW III, and I upgraded the graphics card to 12gb. This led to the fact that the picture in Skyrim changed beyond recognition, and the quality did not suit me at all. You just look at it!

Left one is new, right one is old, and this is same enb version and same enb preset, same ini's, literally only graphic card is different -_-

And so I tried to fix this, for a quiet some time, and I don't know, I  literally rebuild whole skyrim graphics, but it did not lead to a sane result. And one day I was so pissed off about it all that I thinks I forgot to back up some of the ini's I was changing. I don't even know what I broke, but the game just started crush on startup.
Another week I tried to figure out what exactly I broke, and then I decided that I already spent too much time on it and just gave up, Thought that's it's a good reason to try SE

Yeah, the very first one is 4.68, sneaky bastard. And there is another one that is 3.7 crapp. -_-

Hey Crw, Long time no see ! Glad you haven't lost your touch regarding story quality, the graphics are as good as ever, and so are the effects (specially the movement effects, whether they're for sensual scenes or fights), the layout, the humor... and even the badassery at the end. There seem to be less storyblogs going for good fight scenes nowadays. For my part, I partly regret your choice to reset the storyline once again as well, as the previous one was just picking up ; but at the other end this gave you the opportunity to give your characters a fresh look over the events, which is nice. Compliments on the outfits, armors and body proportions as well. Also, grammatically speaking less and less mistakes which each entry, which is also good. And more humor than before, with the pictograms in Emma's head. So nice comeback, Crw ! :D?

The load on the servers is too high. Imgbox is reliable, but always has been on the slower side. And keep in mind that if you double the resolution, you increase the load on the servers fourfold. Previously your images were about 1.3 MB large (with 3 boards each), now they are between 2.6 and 3.7. So that's between two and three times more, and is indeed too much for story sharing (and storing btw, note that I can't save entries with images that large, so make sure you have several copies yourself).

 

I would see three ways around it :

  1. Return to 2160 x 3840 resolution
  2. Keep the 3840 x 6000 resolution, but decrease the jpeg compression quality ?
  3. Create two versions of the images, use the 2160p for the forum, but create a clickable link towards the 3840p version.  Smiley-thinking-48-pinmig.png

Might be the ENB settings which may have been reset with the graphic card change. Anyway, you still got out of it I guess. :classic_angel:

Yes, I have already listened to you and everyone who spoke above, and returned to my previous resolution.  (2560x1440)
In general, it seems to me that I have not lost in quality.

Oh yeah big difference on the LE shots there. Stuff like that is such a pain in the butt. I updated my nvidia drivers a few weeks ago and it randomly changed changed my skyrim resolution to from 1440x2560 to 4k. Took me a little bit to figure out why my framerate was suddenly tanking.
