New Skyrim ENB Crossfire menu yellow flicker FIX!!!
Ok so after having finally decided to mod skyrim last month seeing as how the game is officially complete and will not be patched anymore. I found out to my dismay that ENB and Crossfire just don't get along.
There are 2 known fixes to this after having searched for weeks: 1) use either fear.exe or acb?.exe (or something like that) crossfire profile for TESV 2) rename TESV.exe to oblivion.exe and with SKSE installed you have a skse.ini file that points SKSE to oblivion.exe. Fix 2 only works with 5000 series crossfired and back because 5000 series has an oblivion.exe profile. This profile is missing in 6000 series+.
This makes DOF work without blurring screen or white strobe flicker bugs. So whats the problem? You get a YELLOW FLICKER in the main menu, quest log, and local maps. To counter this I installed this mod from the nexus that makes the backgrounds of these menus black. Lame huh?
I was not satisfied with those fixes. So then I started playing around with the hundreds of crossfire profiles and then I remembered that when Guild Wars 2 beta and official release first came out they also had screen flickering. It was fixed for those games. So then I thought meh what do I have to lose? So I set TESV to use GW2*.exe profile and ... SUCCESS_KID.jpg!!!!111!!!
Not only does running Skyrim with GW2*.exe fix the annoying yellow menu screen flicker fear.exe/acb?.exe/oblivion.exe cause, but ENB works flawlessly, and most importantly the game does not suffer from any FPS drops, in fact I think it runs a little better though that might be a placebo effect. I saw no drop in framerate. Go on ahead, give it a try.

UPDATE: using GW2*.exe profile is nearly flawless it would seem, and I've been experimenting with other games i know for a fact had flickering issues but were later resolved in later catalyst releases and came up with the following results.
GW2*.exe profile: near flawless with all ENB settings enabled including DoF. Water may flicker. Crysis 3.exe profile: near flawless but when entering menu or quest journal colors get inverted. BioShockInfinite.exe profile (for some reason listed as "White List App" in catalyst): flawless for the most part, still testing it.
