The Skyrim.ini tweak itself is in the video description. Learn how to make the archery in Skyrim feel much more like real archery and medieval combat.

Video shows the Skyrim archery tweak works in action (after first showing how it works by default):

0:00 First, how arrows behave by default (arrows fly over the crosshair)

3:35 Second, how archery works after the tweak (arrows fly thru crosshair)

Because of gravity physics, arrows fall as they fly, this tweak doesn't change that.

After the tweak arrows behave more intuitively and you can compensate longer distances by aiming higher and on shorter distances, hit exactly where you aim. As a result, the archery is much more like real archery or medieval combat.

Skyrim Archery Tweak / Fix

http://zemalf.blogspot.com/2011/11/sk...

Makes arrows fly thru the crosshair and then fall (as in Oblivion and most other games), and not over the crosshair like it does by default.

As far as I know, this tweak is safe (doesn't break save games) and you can "uninstall" by removing the lines you add, and arrows behave as by default again.

1) Find Skyrim.ini (not SkyrimPrefs.ini), which is located in 'My Documents/My Games/Skyrim' after running Skyrim once.

2) Backup Skyrim.ini before editing (take a copy of it).

3) Add to Skyrim.ini (or edit the lines are already there):

[Combat]
fMagnetismStrafeHeadingMult=0.0
fMagnetismLookingMult=0.0
f1PArrowTiltUpAngle=0.7
f3PArrowTiltUpAngle=0.7

4) And if you want the arrows to fly really far (not in use on this video), add this to Skyrim.ini as well:

[Actor]
fVisibleNavmeshMoveDist=12288.0000
