I tried to use Reshade with K-Shoot MANIA, a Japanese rhythm game. Without success.

Expected features :
  • Having access to in-game ReShade menu using Shift+F2
  • Setting up a quick "proof of concept" preset for the game

How to reproduce :
  • Download the game at http://kshoot.verse.jp/dl/kshootmania_v164c.zip
  • Install ReShade 3.0.5 in game folder using installer and Direct3D 8/9 API
  • Download standards effects => Yes/No doesn't change the problem here
  • Close installer
  • Run the game (kshootmania.exe)
    Note : You must have an audio device enabled in order to run the game, anything works even a broken jack.
  • Nothing appear, no welcome message, Shift+F2 does not open menu
  • Nothing alarmful in log file (no error or warning)

Log files :
Setup / Configuration :
  • Operating System
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
  • CPU
    Intel Core i7 4790K @ 4.00GHz 38 °C
    Haswell 22nm Technology
  • RAM
    8,00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 679MHz (9-9-9-24)
  • Motherboard
    ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. GRYPHON Z97 ARMOR EDITION (SOCKET 1150)
  • Graphics
    VG248 (1920x1080@144Hz)
    Intel HD Graphics 4600 (ASUStek Computer Inc)
    4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (ASUStek Computer Inc)
    ForceWare version: 372.90
    SLI Disabled
  • Reshade Version 3.0.5 (lastest I guess)
  • K-Shoot MANIA version 1.64b

Tried workarounds :
  • Using different versions of ReShade :
    ReShade 1.1.0 with SweetFX 2.0
    ReShade 3.0.0b7
    ReShade 2.0.3f1
  • Using others rendering API
    OpenGL => Not working, no log produced
    Direct3D 10+ => Not working, no log produced

Questions :
  • Is the game supported ? If not, will it be one day ?
  • Any workaround for this issue ?

After a quick investigation, the game seemingly uses GDI+ for the rendering, thus no compatibility with ReShade.

Doesn't appear to be a D3D9 game. Try the other rendering API options.
Cheers, crosire =)

I just retried the others (Direct3D 10+ and OpenGL), doesn't work either, no log file in both cases.

On http://kshoot.client.jp/troubleshooting.html it indicates (for another issue) that DirectX9 available at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35& and must be installed so it must uses DirectX8/9 API, right ?

Alternativly there may be some third party overlay software running that overwrites ReShade's hooks and that's why they are not triggered. Make sure you have no such (overlay, recording, game booster, etc.) software running.

No overlay is running AFAIK.
I used to have GEXP with shadowplay but uninstalled it.
Steam is not running either.
Edit : Guild Wars 2 works just fine with ReShade

Just in case I missed something, here's a list of running process from Process Explorer (launched as admin) : http://pastebin.com/raw/ciqWYGJu


Also took a look on threads and saw that GDI+ was loaded :


I'm not quite sure, but I think GDI+ isn't DirectX based, am I right ? Is it the reason it doesn't work ?

Wait. If the game uses GDI+ for drawing then yes, ReShade cannot work on it.

Okay that must be the reason, I did a side search that confirmed the usage of GDI+...
