Reshade in The Sims 4

Category: Troubleshooting

hello everyone! i'm hoping i can get some assistance here because i have searched everywhere and could not get an answer. I have the latest reshade installed and no matter what reshade preset i install..my sim always looks blotchy. There are these weird looking lines on them + i can never seem to get the DoF to work properly, it always ends up blurring a part of my sims face. I have seen people install older and newer presets and their sims don't have lines on them. i will attach some pics for reference.

do you see the lines on her legs? like i can clearly tell she's pixelated. and i dont know what im doing wrong?

Привет. Не могли бы вы помочь мне с проблемой решейда? Я тоже использовал эту программу, но эта проблема не возникла. Версия: 3.0.8. Я не могу использовать пресеты, потому что reshade не отображает предустановленные эффекты. Я попробовал установить версии 4.9.1, 4.2.0 - результат тот же.

I was able to solve my problem by turning off Origin's In-Game overlay. It would cause my game not to respond when it was opening. The camera did spin pretty crazy after turning it off still but after restarting my computer it was fixed. Hope this helps!

Reshade Causing The Sims 4 to freeze on start menu

Category: Troubleshooting

Last night my ReShade randomly stopped working, now when I run ReShade TS4 immediately stops responding indefinitely and then has to be forced to quit (sometimes it crashes on its own). My game does open without ReShade. 

This is what I’ve tried (my mods have not been installed during any of this) ...
  • my game was not up-to-date when it broke, so I updated it. Didn’t work.
  • manually uninstalling ReShade 3.0.8 and reinstalling 3.0.8. Didn’t work.
  • uninstalling ReShade with the installer and installing 4.9.1. Didn’t work.
  • updated my graphic card drivers and did the optional windows quality update. Nope.
  • check to make sure my DirectX was updated to Direct12, it is. 
  • tried different combinations restarting my PC between reinstalling ReShade. I got it to open once but after that still crashes.
  • uninstalling the sims and reinstalling it, then trying to install ReShade again. Same issue.

Did either of you find a solution?


Found the issue! At least for me. I was not installing all the shaders.

(Depthbuffer)MXAO works incorrectly in some angles

Category: Troubleshooting

This is a problem with The Sims 4 too. Moving the camera up or down changes the depth detection so all depth effects become stronger closer, and the correct settings only apply when the camera is looking ahead in quite a narrow angle range. It's been this way for a couple of years, it wasn't always so. It has persisted across 3.x - 4.x versions, and none of the various depth buffer settings seem to have an impact.

The game has two camera modes - live mode (that you use to play the game), and tab/camera mode (that you activate to get rid of the hud and to get freer movement for taking screenshots). The depth buffer is calculated differently between the two modes, and it's really only in tab/camera mode this difference in depth is noticeable.

I know this is late, but in case you didn't find your answer:

PPFX shaders cause errors in 3.x versions of ReShade. Delete them from your shaders folder. Magic Bloom is notoriously crap in 3.x and throws errors like no other, so delete that too.

You only really need to worry about red errors, they're the ones that stop things working. Yellow errors are generally more like a gentle warning that something isn't happening as ideally as it should, but most of the time won't cause you a problem, so you can ignore them unless you notice something is broken.

Reshade crashing Sims 4 at various times

Category: Troubleshooting

Hi! I've been using Reshade for a couple of years and have never had any issues with it until yesterday. I use two different presets, one for gameplay and one for screenshots. When I was in live mode and went to change the preset to the one for screenshots, the whole game crashed. Last I used the screenshot preset was about a month ago and I had no issues. Yesterday the gameplay preset was working just fine.

Now the game completely crashes at startup, sometimes at random, and I cannot open my game at all. Other times it's stuck on compiling and freezes the whole computer. I haven't changed any settings or anything in Reshade in a very long time, other than switching between my gameplay and screenshot presets. Also, I know everything is installed correctly because I've been using Reshade for a couple years with no adjustments.

I've tried various things for troubleshooting and have spent the last 8 hours trying to pinpoint what's causing the issue with no luck. I've tried launching the game with Reshade but without mods. I've repaired my game in Origin. I've tried to isolate a problem file by launching the game with different shaders and textures removed from the bin. I've tried changing the name of the d3d9.dll file. I've tried disabling Razer Cortex on my computer. I've reinstalled Reshade multiple times and have tried legacy versions as well, but it's still completely unusable. Help?

ReShade Unable To Hook Onto The Sims 4

Category: Troubleshooting

I am unable to get ReShade to hook onto The Sims 4. I have looked at every troubleshoot option on the internet including various posts on this very forum but to no avail. ReShade just doesn't hook onto the application at all. I have The Sims 4 on Origin (without the Origin overlay)

I have tried changing the .dll file to its 11 and gi coounterparts, using the enb injector and have uninstalled it and reinstalled it 36 times. I have also used various versions of ReShade but nothing seems to be working. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

So my issue is that my reshade is not working on my computer. I have sims 4 on my gaming laptop with the same mods, same files, same saves on the laptop as my computer and it works fine on my laptop. On my computer, when I try to start the sims 4, it will start but then it will freeze on the "Sims 4" menu, with the reshade bar loading stuck at the top. When I uninstall reshade, my sims will start up completly. I tried reinstalling the game twice, tried reshade without mods, replaced my electronic arts folder with a new one. I even read a suggestion to install Directx runtime, but nothing is working. If any could help me out, I would greatly appreciate the help!

Hi, I need some help. I get an error message saying that files are missing or damaged when trying to load Sims 4 with Reshade installed. Without Reshade it loads just fine. Does anyone know what to do?

Resetting a Shader

Hello,
I accidentally reset a shader I was using for The Sims 4 to default and I have tried to get it back to how it was before. I've reinstalled the reshade and shaders, textures, reshade etc and it will NOT go back to how it was. Can anyone help? I want it to go back to how it was with the original reshade I downloaded and not the default I accidentally pushed. Thank you!

You my friend are a god. My partner actually had Citrix on my PC for his previous job. Once I uninstalled it, I no longer had problems. I cannot thank you enough!

Sims 4 is using DX9, so ReShade needs to be installed for DX9, not DX12.

Reshade Will not Load in Sims 4

Hello, I was a long-term reshade user because I like how rich it makes the colours. However, I realized after the last update it was crashing my game. So after uninstalling and doing some troubleshooting I realized the reshader was crashing
After changing the default to direct X 12 uninstalling it from Direct X 9
It would start with my game, and after giving me a blue loading sign. It would just not be there. 
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling as well as a manual uninstall, but officially I'm stumped. 

I'll admit im light tier when it comes to coding, so any ideas would be appreciated.

ReShade is known to work perfectly with Sims 4. Input not working generally indicates a problem outside ReShade. If for example you have Citrix installed, it will prevent input from working in ReShade.

You can also change the preset by editing ReShade.ini however, by setting:
[GENERAL]
PresetPath=<path to your preset file>
Displaying 1 - 20 out of 72 results.
