TOPIC: Idea: Reshade Lite!

Idea: Reshade Lite! 1 week 4 days ago #1

Hi,
I have been reading about the recent bans from PUBG, Arma 3 and some other games. When searched throughly, two things are their excuses:

1) Reshade itself and some Shaders have access to the depth shader.

2) The abusing of perfect perspective shader as a zoom feature.

Number 2 is already resolved as the creator of the shader limited zooming . Number 1, on the other hand can be solved by making a Reshade version without depth access, and only with limited amount of shaders.

Imagine a Reshade Lite, operating only as an AA solution + professional grade screen calibrating tool. Almost like a real time DaVinci Resolve, or Premiere Pro :) "Reshade Lite! The professional screen calibrating tool for your games!"

I know, it does not represent the freedom that Reshade originally gives to shader creators and users, but that would certainly shut the so called anti-cheat authorities' mouths.

What do you think? I'm not capable of writing such code, nor have the knowledge, but some of you geniuses out there maybe find that idea useful?

1 is already solved: ReShade disables depth access automatically in multiplayer games.
To add to that: I am in contact with some of the anti-cheat vendors and have agreements with them to whitelist ReShade. But a game developer has the last say in the end and is of course free to block ReShade if desired. I won't contest those decisions since it's their game not mine.
Cheers, crosire =)

I know, but somehow I was able to re-enable it on GTA Online (even MSAA was on) by trying to learn about depth and clicking some settings randomly. I used Depth Haze for about 30 minutes. I think this may be Battleeye's concern; people may re-enable depth access in online games.

I sincerely hope you and the vendors come to an agreement, because I'm almost personally offended by the people who see/think/use Reshade as a cheat tool.

And I also hope that services like Battleeye focus on real hackers, not come after color corrections and simple effects.

While I support your idea to some point (would like to get something like this to work with MPC-HC - essentially only for qUINT's Lightroom and working 3DLUT function) it would be too much work for "nothing". You simply can't stop people from finding a way to abuse ReShade/ its functions (or any other thing for that matter). ReShade is already blocking depth-info in most online games (but apparently they have a way to avoid it now?).
