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.

Many players are complaining that the game is deafening to desktop without an error message. There are some users who have reported that this occurs after launch, while others face it when they get to a precise game region (Skyhold). It has been said that Dragon Age: Inquisition was accepted by the users of the license, but that doesn’t mean that it’s a game without any issues. There are many reasons for this error like third-party antivirus is crashing the game, vsync and tesselation settings are crashing the game the Lunge bug and many others. No worries because we have a few methods to fix this error. Find more ways to solve this issue by going for https://appuals.com/fix-dragon-age-inquisition-keeps-crashing-to-desktop-no-error-message
