My game doesn't launch at all, it shuts down right away. I don't see the reshade text. Edit: I tried verifying the folder this time around and deleted all of the dlls. Then I did a reinstallation of the Reshade framework, (I did the manual method, by putting in the Reshade folder, Reshade.fx and reshade64.dll [renamed to dxgi.dll]) It still doesn't launch.
puu.sh/l8B9n/ac7e6816cd.png <- screenshot of folder.

Funny thing is that it starts up with the reshade64.dll inside but when i change it to dxgi.dll it doesn't launch. Also to note, I don't see the reshade text when starting the game.

Unleash, if you get this working on your rig, keep us posted how u fixed it. You appear to have the exact same issue I have:

04/11/2015 11:54:33:898 [07516] | INFO | Redirecting 'D3D11CreateDeviceAndSwapChain(0000000000000000, 1, 0000000000000000, 0, 0000000000000000, 0, 7, 0000000000000000, 0000000000000000, 00000000021F9500, 00000000021F9520, 00000000021F9508)' ...

I have not yet found a solution to this problem. I am running latest drivers for Nvidia 970GTX and have no background processes running that "should" interfere... aka the set is quite small any beyond standard windows processes, i have AVG, logitech gaming SW (for headset), and Saitek for HOTAS.
