Hello,

Edit:
After I rolled back my graphical drivers from the latest 378.49 to the previous 376.33, the game runs with all Reshade-versions without any issues. So I think the main problem is the latest Nvidia-driver 378.49. Hope this helps you figuring out what's causing the crash.

Main post:
Since the new Watch_Dogs 2 patch (v.109.154.1001103) the game crashes on startup with the following message:


Here is the Event Viewer error information:
Faulting application name: WatchDogs2.exe, version: 0.1.0.1, time stamp: 0x58611cf7
Faulting module name: dxgi.dll, version: 3.0.6.165, time stamp: 0x563dd991

I tried turning off the Anti-Cheat program using the following command in the short-cut: -eac_launcher, but the game still crashes. After removing Reshade's .dll file (dxgi.dll or dx3d11.dll) the game starts up with no issues, with or without the Anti-Cheat program. I also tried all previous Reshade-versions: from 1.1.0.963 to 3.0.6, all with the same crash/issue. The game looks washed out without Reshade :(

Thanks in advance for your time looking into this issue.

I got a similar error with 378.49 :D
I tried using Reshade versions 0.19.2, 1.1.0, 2.0.3, 3.0, 3.0.6 and got crash WD2 at splash screen stage. This happened after update Nvidia Driver from 376.60 to 378.49.
Remove dxgi/d3d11 dll fix this ofc....
