    Anyone else having an issue where if you alt tab, you end up with both the ingame mouse and the regular Windows cursor? And if so, anyone know how to fix?

    Yea since the 1.6 patch I also have this problem, I've checked for a fix but it seemed way to complicated for me so I'll wait until Bethesda fixes it.

    I've been having the issue.

    The solution I've found to work for me is to open the console, then alt+tab out. When I alt+tab back in, I only have one cursor.

    No good

    Kind of annoying, I made a habit in WoW of alt-tabbing a lot (the result of LFG) and that's now extended to most of my games.

    Just a tip for those wanting to be vampire lords in Dawnguard.

    Make sure you don't have Serana as a follower, she lowers the damage you deal by a significant amount. Which is a shame since she's the best follower IMO

    Hopefully Bethsda will fix this bug soon, but knowing them it'll take a couple months.

    Just reinstalled skyrim last night are there any suggestions for a good mod or two to up the difficulty?
    If it helps I tend to play more stealth with a bow.

    Here are some good recent mods people ought to try:

    SkyRe is a great all-in-one overhaul package which makes drastic changes to perk trees, difficulty, combat balance, racials, etc. For example, the restoration tree acts more like the priest and paladin mechanics we know from WoW. You get buff auras and can cast curses/plagues on people. Weapon trees also have way more interesting perks like letting you parry all melee damage with a well-timed block, or increasing swing speed for two-handed swords.

    Morrowloot overhauls the loot distribution system to act much more like Morrowind. You'll no longer find ebony or glass weapons from random bandit chests, or find orcish gear deep within dwemer ruins. In fact all rare gear like glass, daedric and such has been removed from the leveled lists and hand-placed at logical places in the actual world. In addition a bunch of artifacts from Morrowind like the vampiric ring have been hidden throughout the world.

    And finally ASIS does a number of changes to NPCs like increasing enemy numbers, improving AI and making them use potions/heal spells, giving them appropriate perks and more spells to use. You apply the changes through a patcher tool which makes sure the changes are compatible with any other mods you use that might conflict.

    I'd have to agree, it is without the doubt the best mod out there. As for other mods to 'Up the difficulty'

    Harder to survive, can start off in more difficult situations and many more random encounters with, often, huge groups of enemies.

    I've tried Frostfall but didn't really find it to my liking. Even after configuring it I thought my character got cold a bit too fast and it felt more annoying than immersive.

    One realism mod I do use is Basic Needs which adds hunger, thirst and tiredness. They will accumulate as debuffs over time but won't flat out kill you.

    I might want to do a reinstall to Skyrim now. I have tons of mods (around 50 separate mods) and the game is finally getting a bit broken with flickering textures and a lightning mod or "ENB Injector" which is definitely not working properly. In sunny daytime and dungeons (or other dark locations) it is fine and effects are pretty but when it's dark outside or "snowy weather" both lightning mod and ENB Injector seem to be disabled completely. It looks like there's no lightning going on at all in the game engine.

    Probably an always sunny weather mod would fix it.

    Or I could just wait for Dawnguard to be out for PC, it probably requires a whole lot of new mods.

    I'm somewhat interested in SkyRe, but it states its best done with a new character. Not sure I want to start over though. Will it work with an established character? She's only level 11, but still . . . I have my first house and I'm far enough on the main quest for dragons to spawn everywhere by now.

    It changes the perk trees a fair bit; so it's quite likely stuff will get mucked up if you don't start a new game.

    No, but you do get the ability to blot out the sun for a period of time (I've only seen the action performed, can't speak to how long the sun stays blotted out) at the end, regardless of whether or not you side with them.

    Hey, if you're on the Vampire side in Skyrim: Dawnguard, have you found a Vampire Hood yet? I'm going crazy looking for this damned thing, I found a lot on the Dawnguard side but now I'm farming Broken Fang Cave searching for one.

    So I decided to get Skyrim for the PC and I've been having a few issues.

    I have the shadows settings to the lowest and I've tried turning off all the mods but there's flicker over random buildings. Like everything becomes unrendered every time I'm turning to look at something else every milisecond or something. I turned off anti aliasing and antiscropic lighting. I'm running on high settings. Current video card is 1024 MB nvidia gts 240 (weak card I know but I've seen people be able to run the game smoothly on high settings on it). 8 GB ram, 2.8 ghz intel quad core i7.

    Super newb question but I can't find the install folder for Skyrim. I downloaded it through Steam and it automatically went into my "games" folder. The Skyrim folder in there only has two unreadable flies. I've been trying to download mods through skyrimnexus but can't because I can't put the files into the source folder. If anyone could help it'd be much appreciated. Oh and mods from the Steam workshop seem to work fine.

    The path to your Skyrim folder should be C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim

    Or C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim, depending. Point being, its in that path I mentioned starting in your steam folder.

    Awesome! Thanks for the quick response. Any idea on what might be going on with my graphic settings?
