Okay. Used ReShade_Setup_3.2.2 to install reshade for CivilizationVI_DX12.exe.
No longer working.
Works on CivilizationVI.exe (dx11) but not the version that I actually use.
Tried reinstalling reshade. Same thing.
Tried deleting CivilizationVI.exe. Same thing.
so then what happened was I installed the game, I moved dx12 version shortcut to my desktop, and I unknowingly clicked the dx11 version and thought I was playing the dx12 version. After I closed, I went to run the game again, and selected the dx12 version. Understood. thanks!
