Resetting a Shader

Category: Troubleshooting

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

Category: Troubleshooting

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>

MXAO flickers and darkens the character

Category: Troubleshooting

Hello everyone.
I have problem with reshade in Sims 4. Few month ago i had reshade 3.4.1 and it worked fine. I remove it and installed it again. And now my shadows (MXAO) are not working correctly. Characters become dark, objects and background are flicker. This not heppened before... Screenshot below the topic.
I read the FAQ and there was a paragraph about this problem but it didn't help me (the Preprocessor Definitions are 0  and 1). What could it be?
All drivers are updated. I try different version of reshade from latest to 3.0. The problem always here...
Directx 12. not 9. But few month ago i had Directx 12 and it worked good.
Sorry, I am russian and my english can be bad.

Reshade.ini File is missing

Category: Troubleshooting

I recently downloaded this for sims, it shows the banner at the top, so i know that i installed it correctly. However it says push the "home" button to open the gui, and my computer does not have one, and the combination usually used for the home button is not working either. i went to change the hotkey for it by going to the Reshade.ini file but i dont even have one to change the hotkey. Also the one file that came up for it, which was just titled "Reshade" , didn't have an [INPUT] section to look under. Would love to know how to fix this!

ReShade menu cannot be opened in Sims 4

Category: Troubleshooting

ReShade 4.9.1 in Sims 4 on Windows 10; The HOME button will not open the menu, nor will it open with literally any other means I've searched. It will not open with any F2 combo. I tried adding the input and keymenu lines to the .ini, this does not work. I have disabled origin and any other game overlay. It does not work. I do not use the Legacy version and did not install ReShade there. I have scoured forum post after forum post, no one has any working answers.
So the ReShade bar does show and is working upon game start, but I cannot access the menu in order to activate my preset. Since this version of ReShade appears to be dysfunctional with this game, is there a way to force it to activate a preset outside of the game until it is fixed? I set the preset in the ReShade settings upon install but I don't see the effect ingame.

i think i was on 4.7 or 4.6 before I updated everything, I just tried 4.7 again and it's still doing the same thing. i left it for a good 10 minutes before realising the screen is just frozen like before, I'm not 100% sure what else I can try tbh

Can't get past the loading screen on The Sims 4

Category: Troubleshooting

Have you tried a previous version of ReShade? Try rolling back to 4.7.

I've seen quite a few people having problems with 4.8 and 4.9, and while I don't know if that's just down to user error or something in the new versions not playing nicely with TS4, either way rolling back to a version known to work for most people is the best bet.

Can't get past the loading screen on The Sims 4

Category: Troubleshooting

so i've had pretty much no problem with reshade in the past but the other day I wanted to play the sims 4, the game loaded up fine as normal and I came off to download a mod I needed. i downloaded it, put it into my mods folder and loaded up the game again, except this time the game was stuck on the logo screen with the reshade banner at the top saying there's about 45 files left to go, but the screen had frozen and now the game doesn't work what so ever. i removed the mod and the problem persisted. i also have the most recently updated version of reshade too (4.9.1)

I've removed reshade and loaded up my game again and it works perfectly fine without it, but as soon as I try to load up the game with reshade on it refuses to work whatsoever. i cant find a forum specifically like this so I'm hoping someone will be able to help since I'm so confused and I don't know how to fix reshade. I've updated all of my current mods so it's nothing to do with them. I'll include my computers specs below if they're needed :) ty for your time.

pc specs:

asus rog zephyrus s gx531
windows 10
intel core i7-9750h processor
nvidia geforce rtx 2080 maxQ 8gb
1tb ssd
16gb ram

Sims 4 game won’t start with Reshade installed

Category: Troubleshooting

Which ReShade version you use does not matter if you use the same shaders + preset. So installing ReShade 4.9, but using the shaders + preset from 3.8 (and NOT the new ones) will produce the same image as running 3.8 with those same shaders + preset.

Sims 4 game won’t start with Reshade installed

Category: Troubleshooting

Hello!
So 4 days ago, I was in game after I downloaded hq mod and I went into settings because I wanted to just mess with it and see if the game looked different on ultra vs custom and then my reshade preset broke.
There was no MXAO or Cinematic DOF anything like that working just the color. Not knowing reshade really well, I didn’t know what to do so I uninstalled reshade and installed 4.7 because 3.8 wasn’t working (the shaders weren’t working.)
4.7 was working fine but my reshade preset looked a lot different even after tweaking it.

I found out that if you change your game settings from ultra or whatever that it can turn edge scrolling on and that’s supposed to be off for reshade shaders to work so I uninstalled 4.7 and installed 3.8 back.
then, I was having the amazing issue where my game wouldn't start with 3.8 installed. After messing with it for days, checking the reshade forums (I've changed the d3d9 file names and all that, nothing works. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game, still nothing. I am correctly installing reshade and uninstalling it.) I downloaded the newest version of reshade and that is the only version I can get to work for me on my pc, but the MXAO looks awful and I'm not sure how to fix it. My preset looks terrible and I've tried messing with it but it's extremely dark, the MXAO is just off. I've seen other people having this issue with the newest update as well. 

I've backed up all of my files and am thinking about resetting my pc and essentially wiping it to get this to work but if there's something else I can do and anyone can help please let me know. I would like 3.8 back but my game won't start up with it for some reason /:

Hello! I had just installed the newest version of ReShade today and already added in the preset I wanted to use and adjusted that to how I liked, however, when I click on the Settings tab on the overlay, my game will freeze and crash every time. I've tried it several times and it always ends with the same result. All I wanted was to change my Effects Toggle key. ^^; Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

3D model (shadow) bug - The Sims 4

Category: Troubleshooting

Hello everyone!

Some time ago I downloaded reshade and a few presets for ts4. I found out that most presets had this really weird effect, there was a darker rectangle in which were... Shadows? It's hard to explain and I haven't seen anything like it, it's like every 3D model within the rectangle gets copied, a bit misplaced and colored semi-transparent black.

The rectangle doesn't appear until you enter the game, menu and CAS look perfectly normal. I tried taking screenshots but in-game they showed only the shadows and outside of the game - nothing at all

I thought that it would get fixed with new sims updates but it wasn't the case. What is even stranger is that not all shaders are broken and also some features of a shader (for example, blurr within the corners) are still present

I also have the newest reshade version. Shaders aren't old as well

...Help?

Depth-based shaders have smaller resolution than screen??

Category: Troubleshooting

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well.

Has anyone been dealing with this problem or found a solution ? I play The Sims 4 as well.
My reshade worked quite fine before and a little while ago this exact problem happened to me. I have tried everything and read every troubleshooting answers I could find to solve the problem but nothing...
It might be because of the last TS4 update.. ?

Thank you in advance !

I'm late to what you said but I added the KeyMenu= line and nothing has worked because my reshade.ini doesn't have an input space, in my sims it shows on the top it's loading but I can't open the menu

Reshade.ini is a text file in the game folder. In the very same folder where .dll files and the game executable is.
