Launching the game

Making sure Anniversary Upgrade DLC is disabled

Making sure the Anniversary Upgrade DLC is turned off is a critical step. You may not have purchased it, but it is best to double-check that it is not present:
  1. 1.
    Open Steam and head to your library.
  2. 2.
    Find The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
  3. 3.
    Right-click and select Properties
  4. 4.
    Go to DLC and remove the from the The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Upgrade DLC.
  5. 5.
    If you don't see a DLC tab, it means you didn't buy the The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Upgrade DLC.
This is a necessary step because Skyrim Together Reborn does not function properly with the Anniversary Upgrade DLC enabled.

Launching the game from Steam

Please do not skip this step!
Next, we must launch the game normally from Steam in order for it to generate some configuration files for us. Fortunately, this is a very simple procedure.
  1. 1.
    Open Steam and head to your library.
  2. 2.
    Find The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
  3. 3.
    Right-click and select Launch
  4. 4.
    The SkyrimSE launcher will open and popup with some detection mechanism that should detect your system and set graphic options accordingly.
  5. 5.
    However, in my situation, it identifies everything incorrectly and sets everything to "Low Quality" and a incorrect resolution.
  6. 6.
    To correct this, go to Options and select Windowed and Borderless to change your resolution.
  7. 7.
    From there just set it up as how you'd like.
Press PLAY after pressing OK
8. Now press Play and EXIT THE GAME after it has opened into the main menu.
Just exit the game after it has launched

Onwards to the next step!
