Can a brother get the default Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini files?

I forgot to back up my config files before I started tweaking them.

OOPS.

Anyone want to help me out?

Delete them both and run Skyrim.

Hi guys, just a quick question: i have 2 skyrimprefs.ini ...one in my documents and one in my game folder. It appears that the one in my game folder is not important to the game, since it runs with or without it, and there are some inconsistent lines in it (the lines that tells the resolution is different than my current resolution)...so i just wanna know if its important or not, because i cant find this answer in any other forum. Its very annoying having 2 files with the same name and having to tweak both of them everytime. =P

PS.: there are some lines that exists in just one of them, so both files are different from each other. If i really need them both, please help me distinguish which one should i tweak when people just say "tweak skyrimprefs.ini"

You can ignore the one in the game folder. All tweaks should be applied to the one in the Documents folder.

When in doubt, delete the problematic files and verify the game cache. Steam will detect missing\broken files and will redownload them.
