What works

Almost everything during the first few hours of play.

What does not

> Cannot start the game from the launcher.  Need to run skyrimse.exe.

> I noticed some minor glitches that looked like solid color bars coming off the river around the start of the game.  3 of the around one area.  Otherwise the game looks really good.


> Xbox one wireless controller with xow driver does not work without editing skyrimprefs.ini.  Edit or add bGamepadEnable=1 to the main section.

> I noticed some tearing in the video.  It seem VSYNC might not have been on.  I needed to add ipreventinterval=1 to the DISPLAY section of skyrimprefs.ini.  The tearing seems to have improved.
