In dx10 and dx11 games, If I run the game with the dll named dxgi, it always crashes immidiatly or just gives an error report. I can only get it to work using the d3d11 name. Problem is, some games dont cooperate with d3d11. Specialk and Nioh have problems, and I cant get it to run in World of Warcraft (crash on dxgi, no reshade with d3d11). Any idea what this is? It's been like this for years. I didn't have this problem with sweetfx.
here is a link to my most recent WoW reshade log

Running on MSI GS65 laptop,
nvidia 1070 maxq
i7-8750h

I have similar machine and had same experience all my games works now on dxgi.dll no need to rename, may be on some other games, but all good, what I did is ran my machine in discrete mode, default GFX card should be nvidia.
