I know you try to help but thats not the point, I wont run the exe. I use my PC for work too and I don't run any *.exe at all, and yes I trust Crosire 100% and I know he do it to simplify life to users but I just don't use automated tools.
If we get paranoid even the .dll itself could be really dangerous because you never know what obfuscated code inside of injector can do. Anyway thats not the topic here, I'm stuck with b5 until I can extract it from the .exe so is not any problem :)

btw: Anyone tried to set toggle keys to the mouse? example 0x02 because I only can make work keys from keyboard, not from the mouse :(

Yo crosire i downloaded the beta 6 of reshade 3 ,but no shaders are compiling because of the compile error due to d3dcompile. Yet i have had the Directx end user runtimes installed :(.
You are right. I misspelled the version number of the DirectX end-user runtime D3DCompiler DLL (it's 43, not 46). For now just put a D3DCompiler_47.dll beside the ReShade binary. Most of your Dx11 games should have that in the game folder already anyway, so just copy it to the game that causes trouble (probably Dx9).

- Is there anything special to set MOUSE togglekeys? all keys I set with keyboard works fine but when I try to set for example 0x02 (right click) it doesn't do anything.
The mouse buttons are not currently supported as toggle keys.

Is the time for welcome message increased compared to Reshade 1.1? I haven't measured but it feels like so...now it overpass all loading screens and is in-game too (when the message is there shaders doesn't work, in previous versions shaders render on screen even with the welcome message).
It was actually reduced. And there is a bug which causes it to not show up if no shaders were installed.
Naturally it will show up longer if there are a lot of shaders though. ReShade 3.0 has to compile a lot more in order for the real-time toggling and configuration to work.

I know this has been asking many times in the past, but for future 3.0 do you have any plans to inplement a proxy library like the one in enbseries? definitely would be really useful :)
No. For technical reasons I already posted.

I'd normally understand this. But in this case I don't. You do realize that the ReShade DLLs could do a lot more damage than the EXE? Some games run as administrator, the setup tool purposely does not. The setup tool was even open source for quite some time (I took it down recently because nobody really cared, but would just as well put it up again).
Packing everything in one executable simplifies distribution for me a lot. Because I can automate the whole building process which outputs a single file that can be uploaded.

I cannot detect whether the game renders a cursor on its own or not, so I simply always render my own to make sure there always is one.

Since they are already defined in KeyCodes.h I thought they were supported... any chance to be implemented, or impossible?

Problem is not while compiling but after, while compiling it just "freeze" for a little bit (when shader is very simple it compiles instantly). The thing is after compiling and while message is there effects don't render on whole screen but ONLY in the specific square of the message, and once the message finish then effects render as usual on full screen.

nvm, message is much short on Beta#6 so not big deal now (but still not rendering effects until it finish)

Them being in KeyCodes.h was a mistake, since mouse buttons aren't actually keys and work differently. But I can still add support for them, sure.

That's strange. Which game? Which rendering API? Could you create a screenshot (for example by running the game in window mode and using Windows's Snipping Tool).

That would be really great :woohoo:

all games I tested, d3d9 and d3d11 (haven't tested opengl).

not sure how to make it visible... so I created a basic texture:


and added to BackBuffer color, so white lines should be drawn clearly on screen:

bf1 (d3d11)


bc2 (d3d9)


you have to be quick because is during the welcome message is up, once it ends it draws ok on the whole screen (as it should):



With Beta #6 is almost unnoticeable because welcome message is very short, but with beta#5 (specially with older games that loads almost instantly) you were in the actual game already and the welcome message still didn't finish and so effects didn't show-up "for a while".

EDIT: haven't tested with depth based effects.

ReShade 3.0 Progress 3 years 1 week ago #247

Did something change with the depth buffer and it's importance for effects compared to earlier 3.0 versions?

I noticed in Elder Scrolls Online that SMAA now disables itself if you move a little bit or if other characters move near you, entering the ReShade menu and reloading the shader re-enables it until next it detects activity and then it gets disabled again.

Of course as per the earlier information ReShade does disable the depth buffer with network activity but SMAA has worked regardless besides the predication setting and of course the actual depth buffer detection setting over luma or color. :)

I'm going to test some other effects but I'd imagine it'll work the same though if that's intended now to have effects entirely disabled when network activity is detected that's not really a problem though it would be useful to have a confirmation on how it's meant to work. :)
(I much prefer injected SMAA or FXAA over in-game versions even if those are a bit faster they are normally not customizable.)


EDIT: Tested Guild Wars 2 as well, ESO is 64-bit DX11 whereas GW2 is 64-bit DX9 and it works there regardless of activity, interesting so it must be something else then as that's the exact same .dll. :)

EDIT: Seems to be something with ESO, perhaps just a recent patch that did something but I don't know, I'll keep tinkering to see what I can do.
(.dll name didn't do anything so it's not that simple unfortunately.)

EDIT: Tested the beta #5 version of ReShade 3.0 (.82 or what it was?) and it works there, guess there's nothing else I can do but that answers it enough for me so I'll just keep that game on this version for now. :D

ReShade 3.0 Progress 3 years 1 week ago #254

I decided to try ReShade 3 beta 6 with the latest shader set from github (commit August 7th. I removed a good chunk of shaders I'll never touch to improve load times.).

Here's a video summarizing everything:

How do I make the use of SMAA so I won't have crazy lines aliasing ? cause it doesn't seem to work like the Temporal-SMAA in WatchDogs it just cleared all the Aliasing , this was the best SMAA I saw, but the SMAA shader can't reach this kind .


Do I need Reshade.fxh and SMAA.fx and what is SMAA.fxh ? If I want to use Depth3D shader I don't need both ? If I want to use SMAA + Depth3D do I need

I mean what are those files and what do I need to use when I want SMAA + Depth3D with Reshade 3.0


The Reshade 3.0 Beta 6 is messed up with Bladestorm nightmare, it works with Rehade 3.0 Beta 5 but it takes the settings from somewhere all the time even if I deleted the ini files where I set it first.

Beta 6 now doesn't even activate with the game only beta 5 works.

For some reason some games I can click TAB to open the options and some settings is still SHIFT + F2 , but on some of them SHIFT+F2 is taking screenshot... I don't know what happens.

Does Reshade 3.0 Beta 6 save it's settings in more places than what I choose ? I keep all my profiles in C:\Reshade\Profiles and the shaders are C:\Reshade\Shaders

Somehow even without Reshade folder it still launches the Reshade settings.. even though there shouldn't be profile and it should start fresh tutorial.

(Tested)EDIT : When does reshade tries to take the settings from C:\Users\xx\AppData\Roaming\ReShade ?
(Answer) That's happen since version Reshade Beta 5 3.81+ if you try to add the profile "ini" in the end it won't create it and will create customize file in this folder because it adds "ini" automatically.


EDIT : Using Reshade 3.0 Beta 6 if not downloading the shaders when it says, Reshade overlay doesn't launch or work , can I use without downloading the shaders for every game ? I just want to use 2 Shaders, SMAA + SuperDepth3D .


What's the newest version of Reshade 3.0 Beta 5 ? for Beta 6 I remember I saw 3.89 sometimes 3.90 and sometimes 3.91 , but now for Beta 5 newest is 3.82 or 3.81 ?

What do I need the Textures for ?


Trying to understand this thing lol.. so many things happened behind the scene.

Not at all. But there is a bug related to the depth buffer in beta 6. See next comment.

You won't reach the quality temporal SMAA can achieve with normal SMAA. There is not enough information available to implement temporal AA with ReShade.

SMAA.fxh contains the official SMAA shader code, SMAA.fx is the wrapper around that code to make it compatible with ReShade, ReShade.fxh contains some helper functions and variables used. For SMAA you need all three. The Depth3D effect is standalone.

No. ReShade stores all its internal settings right beside the DLL with the same name, but INI extension. All presets you created are stored in whichever path you specified. AppData is no longer used (it was in previous iterations of this beta).

You may as well download (only) the shaders you want to use yourself. No need to have the setup do it. That's why it's optional.

The last digits in the version refers to the build number. Since the 32-bit and 64-bit variants are built separately, they have different numbers.

Some shaders use additional image data for their calculations. SMAA for instance requires two lookup tables that are loaded from AreaTex.dds and SearchTex.dds.

Ah, the log sometimes can't be reached by the mouse cursor using the default input option....is it expected? The cursor can't literally trespass :D the menu area.
Blocking all inputs I can reach it.

And sometimes the cursor can't reach the lower part of the screen.....so you can't click on some parts of the menu ("finish" in tutorial section too).



Maybe it's a good thing to open the menu much higher and not in the center of the screen?
