Hey,

I recently found out Chill and I'm surprised how helpful it is. Seriously, great job, I consider this as a must-have for anyone running Skyrim with ENB. However I stumbled upon one weird bug. Here's a little story [smile]

I'm using Chill for smart FPS limiting because I'm running Skyrim with ENB. Skyrim's engine behaves really weird when the FPS is jumping up and down (which happens very often with ENB, hard to keep up 60 fps all the time). Unlike other games that run 45-60 fps, Skyrim causes weird mouse feeling when FPS is fluctuating. Even when it drops from 60 to 50 fps you can feel that your mouse movement is like moving a hand in the water. Kind of laggy, slow, less responsive than in other games with 45-60 FPS. The common solution for that is limiting the game FPS to stable number so it never goes below that particular FPS. Well I'm happy to report that with Chill fixes that problem by it's smart limiter without having to block yourself in one particular number [smile]

HOWEVER I noticed that it works only with keyboard+mouse. Once I activate game controller in Skyrim settings the FPS goes down dramatically. Movement is sluggish as hell, it feels like 15-20 fps max. It goes back to normal once I turn off my gamepad in Skyrim settings. I don't even need to unplug the controller or restart the game. Just activating / disactivating controller in Skyrim settings triggers that problem. Any idea why is that? Is Chill somehow connected to the sensitivity of active controller, so since mouse is much more accurate (more dpi? no idea) it works better than with controller? It seems that Chill is limiting FPS like crazy with controller activated. 

And if you're wondering if it's caused by something else, I can say that I tested it. Skyrim + Controller without Chill works alright. Actually just disabling Chill during the game with F10 removes the problem entirely.

1. Thanks for the nice, clear post.
2. About gamepad - he-he-he, I am blushing.[sneaky] In opposite to HiAlgoBoost, CHILL does not support pad. So, it does not detect any movement when you use pad and decides that this is a perfect time to limit frame rate. [smile]

Obviously, we will have to add joystick support...

Ah, so it's all clear now,  thanks for your reply [smile] Chill with Gamepad would be nice though I guess it's not that high of a priority since most people probably play with keyboard + mouse on their laptops (and that software is mainly designed for overheating laptops). Anyway, great software, keep up the good work [smile]
