Thank you a lot! But i have an other issue now.

I installed latest reshade version and then put your d3d9.dll in order to overwrite mine. Now reshade is no longer detected by the game. No reshade window anymore. It's like your dll is not detected. Have you an idea? I tried your dll with reshade 3.2.1 too but it didn't work again.

I guess this is because you don't have the same hl2.exe version as mine. Is it a 32bits or 64bits version ?

Hi,

With Dark Souls 3, each time I use a nvidia DSR resolution, depth is not shown anymore (black screen) and DOF does'nt work.

@thalixte

Ya, I tested your posted dll with Oblivion. It does seem possible to get a depth buffer in the 3rd person mod in that game. But, the problem it's strobing really fast.

If you have time I think that game would help with that new dll creation.

Also, Thank you.

Hi, how are you ?
Does it happen in d3d9 or d3d10 (don't remember the rendering api of this game)?

Elder Scrolls (4) Oblivion? That's D3D9 with shader model 2.0(b) primarily, transition area period from DirectX 8 to DirectX 9 just before and then shader model 2.0, 2.0b and moving to 3.0 though I can't say if ReShade is affected by shader model or if it's just the API itself. :)

Oblivion and Fallout 3 / New Vegas does use 3.0 for the HDR lighting effect (adaptive brightness.) but it's a bit mixed.
(The games also used shader files for the most common AMD and NVIDIA GPU's in 18 separate files loading whatever is closest and then a 19th file going fully with shader model 3.0 but trying to force that usually just breaks the graphics in the game.)

EDIT: 2.0b I think is mainly for hair filtering resulting in finer transparency for character hair on supported hardware. Though that probably doesn't mean much else.

EDIT: I guess renaming the exe file would risk breaking things also but the game did have quite a few driver hacks from both AMD and NVIDIA, old chuck patch from AMD's side allowing HDR+MSAA together for one thing which NVIDIA also had something to allow this combination.
(Ticking HDR in the launcher would gray out MSAA so it was one or the other but this way driver forced MSAA didn't break anything and both worked at a slightly higher performance penalty as the downside to doing this.)

Quite common in games back then (DOOM3 had a lot of fun things done to it as I recall.) but it's deeper than the DirectX layer and I can't really say how much is in the current drivers either or if it even risks breaking shader injectors or if it's something else messing with the depth buffer format or how ReShade tries hooking it for this title.

JBeckman said it best. :D It's d3d9 with some quirks.

I am doing OK. Thank you for asking.

Is there anything I can do to make the normal map in this game look "normal" ? Here's some screenshot showing the issue with the normal maps in House of Dead model 2:

Depth buffer looks fine:


Normal map is wire framed:


This happens with all Sega Model 2 games [running on Nebula Model 2 emulator]. Depth of field works fine due to depth map showing correctly, but ambient occlusion and SSR aren't working well at all. The PC port works fine but that was a very dumbed down port. So if it's possible to fix the normals here, then it would be great. I've fiddled with "_IS_LOGARITHMIC" settings. But nothing worked.

Is this game's fault because of the way it's designed or there is still some hope?

Maybe try to play with the RESHADE_DEPTH_LINEARIZATION_FAR_PLANE parameter (decrease it gradually by ranges of 100 to see what happens).

Thanks for replaying. Unfortunately, that didn't fix the issue. I even tried negative values and that didn't work.

Hmm, that's strange. Maybe you could ask Daodan what can cause this behaviour... Which Reshade dll do you use (the official one, or one of my WIP version) ?

The official one I suppose? I mean the one which you can download from the main page of Reshade website [It's the official one, right?] .
