Hey guys. I am ENTIRELY NEW to sweetfx stuff. Its confusing to me because some mods on skyrim nexus seem to like install "sweetfx" without this tool. Whatever, that isn't the issue.

I downloaded the reshade and framework- got the reshade beta 0.18.3, opened in 7zip, and opened the setup.exe just like it said.

It tells me to find the game I want. So I browse and go to my GTA5 folder (note, I am using the rockstar games version) and select GTA5.

Then, it says that it is "unable to copy file "ReShade64.dil"

I try again with playgta5.exe. Same thing...


Anyone have any suggestions?? PLEASE help!

DO I have to choose the API? What the hell is an API.


Did I mention I am a complete beginner.

See if this tutorial helps::

For GTAV you do the same that has been done for "GameType02" in that video. The only difference in GTAV will be a dxgi.dll being created.

Nope. Text shows up but its red and says failed.

What about "d3d9.dil" That was created along with the dxgi

What is it? Should I delete it?

OH WAIT it worked. Just had to drag over the reshade folder itself as well.


So what does it load with a default sweetfx? Lol. What txt file to I overwite with custom presets?

If you run the game on DX11, you can delete the d3d9.dll. What you need is a dxgi.dll. If there is non created, then rename the ReShade64.dll to dxgi.dll.
All your ReShade files are in the GTAV folder, right?
