Hello guys !

I've been playing DA:i with ReShade for sometime and it is the first time i have a problem !
Until last week, i was running on W7 and had no problem but i just upgraded to W10 (i formatted so i lost everything and had to reinstall all) and since then i seem to be getting a startup crash when i try to use ReShade :(
When i was still on W7 i used the mediator to install Reshade and then found a preset i liked on Nexus i manually added the needed files to my game's folder and everything was good to go. But i tried the same procedure but got a crash. I also tried to manually install everything but still got the crash...

Tonight i tried to figure what could cause this and i found out that when i remove the ReShade folder (not the .dll, juste the folder named ''ReShade'') from the game directory, the game load but i get this message (of course).

I'm really lost here... i'm not sure what to do and it is quite frustrating :/

Has anyone had to deal with something similar ? Am i a lost cause LOL ?

(Also, all my Gforce drivers and up-to-date and i'm running on DirectX 12. If you need more info juste ask !)

EDIT : Ok, i just got a bit farther haha ! Now i can load the game with the ReShade folder in, but it says ''No effects found'' .......
I think it has something to do with the ReShade.fx file ? When it's not in the folder, the game load with Reshade but the preset is'nt working (no effects found) ... when the ReShade.fx file is there the game crash. And i tried many ReShade.fx from different sources (nexus, ReShade web site, etc) and it always crash...
Here is what is does when i dont put the .fx file (or just name it differently like, for exemple : d3d9.fx )

Sounds like you are missing the right D3DCompiler binaries on your fresh Windows 10 installation. Install the DirectX end-user runtime: www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details...laylanguage=en&id=35 , which adds a few missing components.
