Hello everyone,
I've recently gotten into cinematics and posing and I'm starting to use the 4.9.1 version of ReShade for my VFX.
Whenever I turn on reflection effects or ambient occlusion the effect isn't present until I turn on my flashlight.
I've had the shaders installed previously on GMod with no problem whatsoever.
Please help!

Update: I uninstalled both Garry's Mod and ReShade and reinstalled them on my other hard drive. I checked the Copy Depth Buffer option under D3D9 but now the ambient occlusion, blur and reflection effects don't work.

Are you playing by yourself or with other people? ReShade automatically disables access to the depth buffer when it detects the game process has network traffic (this is to prevent cheating), which these kinds of effects depend on.
