I opened up all the permissions I could, properties > etc. etc. I've installed presets, tried making my own, it wasn't reading or saving them. none of the edits were checked, everything has Read checked, write checked, I have reinstalled it, and nothing. checked file paths, nothing. also changed file types from .txt to .ini.
Basically, Reshade requires write permission. If your ffxiv installed in Program Files, you need to run the boot\ffxivboot.exe with administrator privileges.
If you can saving preset when run the boot\ffxivboot.exe as Administrator, you setted permissions is wrong.
The administrator has disabled public write access.
