DayZ problem

Made a troubleshooting topic as requested about ReShade not working with DayZ.

First, I can tell you that any version of SweetFX (Boulotaurs/1.5.1/eFX) doesn't work but used to. And what comes to ReShade. As I launch the game through steam or a desktop shortcut, nothing happens. But when I start the game from it's folder I get the basic YES/NO ReShade popup and after that nothing happens. (DayZ.exe pops up in Task Manager and a moment later shuts down). Also, log reports everything's fine, no errors or warnings.

Since which version of DayZ SA is this the case?

I've only been playing the official non-beta DayZ branches... Tried ReShade with DayZ from v 0.53 to current. I've also tried with 0.11.0 to most recent version of ReShade and all have the same problem.

I'd like to add that DayZ has a special Battle-eye process run in the background when you start the game.

I don't know if that could be causing problems or not.

There we go. BattlEye doesn't like ReShade, same happens when trying to play ArmA in multiplayer as soon as BattlEye starts up.

Could be, who knows...
But BattleEye cheat protection has been in the game for a long time (maybe from launch). It was there when SweetFX worked.
It's probably a bug in the more recent branches of the game or BattleEye is being a douche and blocking any kind of injectors...
