Reshade & SL Rally EVO [SOLVED, tldr: it works!]

Hey guys, it looks like Reshade won't work on SLRE, but it's definitely on my side since I see many videos posted on Youtube showcasing various Reshade presets applied to this game. So I need some advice or a workaround on how to make Reshade work with it.
When I either try those Youtube advertised presets or one of my own presets (from other games, I mean) - I get that 'cannot open file' error with a question mark on the place of that letter 'e' in the word 'Sebastien':

>>error: Cannot open file "F:\Steam\steamapps\common\S?bastien Loeb Rally EVO\ReShade.fx"

I'm not 100% sure if that's the culprit, but I assume so. Any ideas?

Make sure you use the latest ReShade version. Older ones did not support Unicode file paths.

Thanks, @crosire! However, I forgot to edit the topic yesterday as I found a workaround in changing steam appmanifest value for the game folder name, replacing that 'french' 'e' with a normal 'e'. And so I got it working! :thumbsup: B)
