Reshade not working
I use reshade with all my game without issue, on RDR2 I tried to install reshade on the rockstar launcher and on the .exe both didn't work out. Reshade succesfuly instaled he said but in game I can open it.
I check on different website but can't see what is the problem as the reshade install is always the same.
1. Download Reshade
2. Extract to a location
3. Install it into your RdR2 folder where the RDR2.exe is
4. Download Photorealistic Reshade and put the .ini into the same RDR2 folder
5. activate it ingame with home(pos1) and select Photorealistic.ini

Anyone has an clue what could be the problem?

I did that but everytime I switch from vulkan to dx12 and I restard the vulkan is back to the graphic settings. Any way to force it to go back to dx12?

change the api in the system.xml file. Then set the file to read only.

I did that and doesn't work
what I did
I remove the xml
start a new game
in the graphic setting was locked vulkan
so I unlocked pout dx12
save left the game
check xml and yes he has dx12 so I put it in read only
I start a new game
and the graphic setting stay in vulkan
He should be straight forward and this reshade give me such a headache lol

Anything else you could thing off before I give up?

Don't have any running, I don't understand .
Where did you send your reshade to the rockstar game launcher or the rd2.exe ?
