TOPIC: Dark Souls II "Stopped Responding" Upon Boot!

Dark Souls II "Stopped Responding" Upon Boot! 8 months 4 weeks ago #1

Howdy! Cannot, for the life of me, get Dark Souls II to run anymore!
It was working flawlessly with Reshade before. I even rolled back to an earlier, working version of Reshade (1.1) but to the same effect...
I am not tech savvy, nor am I technologically-inclined, so ANY help is much appreciated...

My d3d9.dl:

I have tried repairing DirectX, reinstalling Dark Souls II, and next I will try another DirectX 9 game, and failing that I will reinstall my video card driver!
Thanks for your time, people.

EDIT: Just tried Reshade 2.0.1f2 with Resident Evil 4 (which uses DirectX 9) and it booted up just fine, yet still will not load up Dark Souls II. Honestly, DkS II really is the hardest game in the franchise, especially now that they nerfed Reshade buffs. :silly:

Very much sounds like a third-party program is interfering. Disable all overlays, screen recording/streaming tools, game boosters and similar software.
Cheers, crosire =)

Alrighty, I'll see if I can pinpoint the culprit, so far no luck.
If nothing else, a system restore will likely do the trick! If I find the cause, I'll post here what it is!

Well, no luck so far. The farthest I managed to get was getting the game load presets and boot normally using SweetFX 1.5. Although the preset didn't look right...

Sorry to anyone who is hoping for a solution, I'm not sure what could possibly be the problem. Anyone else having trouble with Dark Souls II and Reshade 2.0.1?

his seems to be the only error I get as of today:

Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


It just stops there. No error warning or anything. Every time.

Close to giving up. REALLY wanted to continue enjoying this awesome game with Reshaded colors and whatnot, and I was for a while... It just stopped working out of nowhere. No overlays or anything that i know of, getting in the way. No antivirus, no game boosters either.

Final bump most likely.

Game only seems to work (for me) with SweetFX alone. Reshade of any version will just crash my game. Oh well, I'll stick with SweetFX 1.5.
