On a new game using the latest version of boost v4 (with no previous versions having ever been released on this pc), the latest version of enb (wrapper not injector version), the new beta version of skse I crashed on a new game within a couple of minutes, frame rate was all over the shop often going well over 70 fps which is bad as the engine still has the old 64 hz bug (same overhauled bugged engine as the fallout games unfortunately) does boost disable vsync and if so why?

With Boost - FPS *should* be jumping all over the place [smile] That's the point... I don't think there should be a problem with framerates over 60fps - but by default I disable VSYNC.
You can re-enable it by editing *settings.ini* in:

My Documents\My Games\HiAlgo\BOOST_v4.0\D[wink]Steam)steamapps)common)Skyrim)TESV (or something like that - depends on your system)
 
Change this:
ALLOW_VSYNC = true

Three tests each and every time ctd within minutes on a new game every time so boost is conflicting with something somewhere, off to test without boost installed see if I get the same issue

Good, thank you - let me know what you find.

Each time I use the same testing scenario when I get to the main menu I coc to riverwood so with boost ctd before leaving riverwood twice third time just before I got to the meadery. uninstalled boost removed all remaining files, following the same test procedure i ran all the way to the bandit fort greymoor where there were fifteen odd bandits (using populated forts/towers) teased them back to the guards at the watchtower, got attacked by two wolves and three wolf pups from skyrim  immersive creatures, so plenty to strain the engine, but no crashing so there has to be a conflict with boost somewhere. Does it matter where boost gets installed/ As I am running windows 8.1 I let boost install to default c?programfiles directory but games are all installed on a separate ssd drive.

Ok, thats a good test [smile] Especially loved the wolf pups [smile])) Lets troubleshoot:

1) Run with Boost, but press "F10" to disable it in the beginning of the game. Will it still crash?
2) What hardware do you have - AMD/Intel/NVidia? How much RAM and how much VRAM?
3) There is a log file generated - it might give some pointers - take a look at HiAlgoBoost.log - in My Documents\My Games\HiAlgo\BOOST_v4.0\D ;Steam)steamapps)common)Skyrim)TESV

Good luck!

Also:

1) what mods do you use (not content mods, but "high-tech" mods - like ENB, SKSE etc.)
2) Do you use high resolution textures?
3) Do you use ENBoost?

Also - do you see a red square appear in the upper-left corner?...

I am running with an intel hex core 4930x geforce titan and 32 gb ram. I run skyrim with mainly 2k textures aside from 4-8k for dragons, no crashing/little stutter without boost so though I don't really need it every little to reduce strain on engine/system can only be good. Aside from the enb wrapper (I assume that it's dll won't conflict with boosts as they run in separate folders?) latest skse beta can't test without as I am too reliant on it, i will try and test soon but I am getting close to quitting skyrim for good, the bugginess of the engine is really pushing my patience to it's limits, especially with the witcher 3 due next month

Oh snap! [smile])) Intel hex core 4930x geforce titan and 32 gb ram [smile]))  You don't really need Boost... To reduce lag and stutter you can try HiAlgo Chill - http://www.hialgo.com/TechnologyCHILL.html

Checked the log sems to be unable to handle/find vertex shaders aside from that the log tells me nothing, ran a final test with boost running crash again, will try one last time running without skse, talking about titans am debating the upgrade to the titan x be back after another test without skse

As far as I know Titan and 980 are pretty much the same thing, with 980 having less memory and firmware-disabled features for GPGPU... As for gaming - 980 is better, and about 2x cheaper - right?...

ERROR at line 852 in .\MyWrappers.cpp, SSurfaceDescriptor::StopOcclusionQuery(): Assertion failed!
04/10/15  14:08:23ERROR at line 857 in .\MyWrappers.cpp, SSurfaceDescriptor::StopOcclusionQuery(): Assertion failed!

Last two lines in the log.

980 is better than the titan but 35% underpowered in comparison to the titan x as though the 980 has higher clock speeds the titan x is running with a lot more cudas (way more processing per clock cycle) effectively aside from speed the titan x dominates everywhere else especially in higher res gaming, personally am planning on a titan x to future proof in regards to vram for a few years (with the ultra texture pack) shadows of mordor uses just short of 5.7 gb vram. Personally for me I want to have a single gpu which can handle 4k and ready to handle the witcher 3 in all it's glory.

Am removing boost as I am not sure what other tests I can run to help you figure out whats going on? Will take a look art chill though

oh god this about doubled my skyrim's FPS, and the reaction the game has to my input is nearly instant!

just one major problem I have, you know that box on the top right of the screen? the one that goes from about 100% to 50% and back again (assuming that's the resolution menu) is there any way to make it ether invisible, or more clear?

and sorry if this isn't the right place, I just only see 1 skyrim post and yah....
