Dxtory crashes Skyrim with ENB on

I tried for the past week to play Skyrim to record some footage of it and it kept crashing while loading a save file. The load screen would show up for a few seconds and then CTD. I thought it was the ENB mod I had itself being faulty so I took it out and sure enough the game loaded. So I did lots of tweaking and rearranging of files and still crashed every time. It was only today I realised it's actually Dxtory that crashes it, when I exit Dxtory the game runs fine with the ENB on.

Anyone got any advice how to get it to work?

I know this is completely unrelated, but what kind of rig do you have? I've been watching your video series and became curious.

That sounds weird. Maybe something in the advanced settings in Dxtory going wrong? I'd try there, I think everything off is usually the most stable but I don't know for sure.

Yeah maybe, I will try later. The Dxtory forums suggested using delay hook but that did nothing. It's very strange, cos it's the only game that does it

Same issue here mate, I was wanting to record with Dxtory and I use the Project ENB ... ENB ..and several other mods..I can load into the game.. as soon as I trigger to start recording.. I either record for about 4 secs then crash.. or its immediate crash. Ever find a solution?

Any software which interacts with the directx application of a game can potentially cause a crash or problems with ENB (ENB uses its own d3d9.dll file). This includesinclude apps such as Xfire, EVGA precision, afterburner etc which add overlay effects onto games.
