The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim




Skyrim Configurator | 4.5 MB

The Skyrim configuration tool is a QT-based GUI to edit the configuration files of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Also the preview works only for 13 options at the moment, but that will change in the next versions.


Just unzip and run the application.
