I am trying to use Reshade with this Metro 2033 Redux, but if I install Reshade the game wont start, nothing happens when I press Play on it on Steam. Do anyone know why and how to solve it? On the Reshade game compatibility homepage this game is listed as "perfect".

Sometimes such programs as MSI Afterburner or Riva Tuner can cause issues. If you have such a program running, try starting the game without them.

If that would be the case would it not cause the same issue on all games? I can start Dying Light with Reshade installed without any problems.

Have you tried all the different .dll files yet? Does Metro launch without ReShade? Do other hooks such as GeDoSaTo and the generic versions of ENB & SpecialK work? Also, what machine are you running? If it's a laptop, a very interesting issue that can occur is immediate CTDs whenever any version of ReShade is installed. I believe it has to do with Nvidia Optimus, and the only way to bypass it is by going into your device manager and disabling your iGPU (which shouldn't cause any issues, you'll just be unable to access the Nvidia Control Panel and you'll likely get tearing throughout normal usage).

Hm not sure what you mean by all the different .dll files? I just run the installer?

Metro do launch without Reshade yes, and I can use Reshade with other games such as Dying Light without problem. I have a gaming computer with a GTX 980 ti graphics card.
