Skyrim Stuttering
So I recently got Skyrim and an experiencing some wierd stuttering in the camera while I am playing. My system should be able to run Skyrim no problem, it doesnt seem to happen at any particular time (inside or outside), and my FPS seem to stay arround 60. After an extensive search of the internet I think I have a problem that can be fixed by some kind of framerate limiting. However, most of the posts are from 2011 or 2012. I was just wondering what the current fix for Skyrim v.1.9.32 is? Hope you guys can help me out, this is a GREAT game. Thanks and take care.

set vsync to "on" in your graphics driver (under control panel) for Skyrim. If using SKSE, you need to also point to the SKSE_launcher.

I didn't have much success editing ini files to do this, had to set it via the driver.

stuttering is usually due to framerate drops

what your PC specs/mods used etc?

Zefram, I am fairly sure it has nothing to do with normal controls of framerate. I can tweak the Skyrim settings and get FPS of either 30 or 60 and it stutters at either FPS. Thanks for the help Alkpaz but I am a bit of a computer idiot, not sure where to find my graphics driver. My graphics card is (may be?) a AMD Radeon HD 6700 Seires.

seemed that one was kinda unclear..

Sorry, I would be more helpful if you had an nvidia card :X

The CCC should be in control panel. Or do a search for Catalyst Control Center.

was worried it was no longer called CCC since AMD bought ATI.

You can use RadeonPro to generate a profile for your Skyrim settings.

Put this in your Skyrim.ini file under GENERAL:

iFPSClamp=60

It's the ONLY way to fix the stutter. Cheers!

Just had to say it's a please to help someone who is polite or pleasant (or wonder of wonders both) You take care too and good luck. I hope you find your answer soon --glad you enjoy the game :)

P.S. I had terrible stuttering with AMD and a not so great HD. Hope neither are your issues though harddrive health and background programs is something to look into if none of the other solutions work and your not using SSD.

I don't know if the Skyrim Performance Monitor would help you isolate the problem given its erratic nature, might be worth a shot.

Here is the link, as for how to use it you might want to watch a video -- it would be more efficient and I don't use it enough to explain it well.

As for not having other issues with other games, that can be an apples/oranges comparison -- there is no question that Skyrim is better when optimized and patched (there are threads on that) but also it relies on CPU and GPU in a way that may differ from other games you play.
