I just bought Skyrim today, and I'm already experiencing technical difficulties. After I clicked the "new game" button, the loading screen was unbearable, and took sooo much longer than it needed to, after that, the "Bethesda presents, etc." went on, and once the game apperaed, I experienced MASSIVE lag (eg. Skipping Frames, low FPS.). I can't even play. I've tried multiple approaches:
-Changing the SkyrimPrefs as many others did: Didn't help. -Using Low detail, and bringing everything down to a minimum: Again, nothing but llag. -Finally I tried running in windowed mode, and that seemed to work: but I can only play in like 600x400 or whatever. And to put it into perspective, I have a 16:9 1920 x 1080 display. -I even tried using a mod to play it in windowed mode without borders @ 1920 x 1080, and still it lagged.
I updated my drivers, looked everywhere on the forums, and nobody has been experiencing the same problems! Please I really want to play this game, but I just cannot. I'll post my specs:
