[SOLVED] CS:GO Not Launching

CS:GO Not Launching was created by Glace
Hello there, I was able to use ReShade perfectly up until today.

Well, I updated it to 3.0.8 because my CS:GO wouldn't launch with the old version, and I thought an update to the new version would fix it.
The update did not help, and I'm sure the previous versions would not as that was the reason I updated ReShade to 3.0.8 in the first place.

My System Specs:
  • Intel Core 2 Quad 8200
  • GTX 745
  • 550W PSU
  • 1TB HDD
Some steps I've taken so far to attempt to fix this problem:
  • Reinstall reshade, many, many times. Each time was unsuccessful.
  • Check if the d3d9.dll and .ini are in the /bin folder.
  • Validate the integrity of the game files.
  • Update my graphics card drivers, turned out they were extremely out of date.
  • Trying different launch options in CS:GO and HLAE.
  • Using another steam account.
  • Launching CS:GO while disconnected from the internet.
  • Reinstalling ReShade without Steam in the background.
Still no luck. Another person I know is also having this issue, but others are not. I think it's system specific, but it's really weird since ReShade was working before today.

Maybe it's Steam checking the dlls? If it is how can I disable it?

Here is a screenshot of my C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive folder

Please help me as I've already tried the most common procedures to solve it.
Thanks

I don't have any overlays. ReShade is not launching at all. CS:GO isn't launching at all. I couldn't even get CS:GO to launch when its installed with it.
I've tried 3.0.8, 3.0.7 AND 3.0.6. Still not working :/

It still does not work. I tried the enbinjector method.
I put csgo.exe in the .ini for enbinjector and even tried renaming the d3d9.dll and .ini to ReShade.dll/.ini as suggested.
CS:GO did launch when I renamed it to ReShade.dll but there was no ReShade in CS:GO.

EDIT: I tried moving the enbinjector.exe and .ini to the csgo directory, but it's still not working. I even moved it to the /bin folder, still not working.
I honestly have no idea what is wrong here. It was working perfectly a few days ago :(
Please help :/

Mine's not either, I've tried verifying the bin and some other files and it won't work. Hopefully someone can find the solution :/

The only way to disable it is by launching in -insecure mod as far as I know. (haven't tested it since I never use insecure mode)

There is a file (I think it's in the common folder, not too sure, I can't check atm since I'm at work) that verifies every dll loaded and you can't add reshade to it, seems to be encoded or something and if you try to add it, it will just not launch csgo anymore.

As far as I know there is no fix and Valve intended this (not only this injector, but all of them to counter-act possible hacks perhaps?)

I do launch CS:GO in -insecure mode as I use HLAE. But the game is still not launching. Can you check which file it is that checks for the dlls once you get back? I'll try removing that file and see what happens.

Hello Glace,

Sorry for the extremely late response, I kinda forgot to be honest...

The file is called "csgo.signatures" and is located in the following directory:

SteamApps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive

They seem to have encrypted keys for the files that work as a signature and I think if it tries to load one that isn't on that list with the right signature it won't launch CS:GO.

If you do every find a solution, please let us know here! Would love to use ReShade again for CS:GO. Without it, it looks really bland.

I have tried deleting that file multiple times, but it still does not fix the problem unfortunately.

After so much time. But suddenly it will help someone.

If CS GO does not start, or starts with an error - something like NVAPI with error 0xFFFFFFFE

This means the csgo.signatures file is in the main directory

As I understand it, this is a White list of dll's

in Steam, add -insecure to the startup options

will not be allowed through VAC, but ReShade will work

For those who still got the issue this the solution worked for me.

I have managed to get reshade functioning and set up how I like but since it is post-processing I'm naturally unable to use any sort of in-engine recording like the startmovie function which is a shame. What sort of screen recording software would you recommend instead to capture instead? Also, I noticed some weird m9 knife skin glitch, the skin actually looked really nice...black n blue. Same for some skins I have purchased via trade url steam . The skin issues were definitely caused by reshade.
