I discovered that Reshade shader starting load is affected by HD load time. This became very obvious as I have my slow to load favorite games on small 120gb disc. It took like 2-3 seconds to load.

So yeah it is probaly a good idea defrag your game disc(As long they aren't SSDs).

Not sure how valueable this info is or not. But I thought to share any way.

The more shaders ReShade 3.x has to load the slower it'll be to compile these when a game is started, which is why it's recommended to only have the shaders you want to use in the defined folder which greatly decreases the time this takes compared to if it was to compile all shaders. :)

In most games they only loads once, so for me personally it is not problem. I thought about just installing the shaders I use. But then I thought that rather wait them load then, go back install someone that I thought needed. Though I tend to mess about in my games. I really like the new preset system which encourages experimentation :)
