How to make Reshade work with Mafia 3 in 2018
Can't get Reshade 3.2.1 (or later) to work with Mafia 3? Game crashes at launch? Here is an alternative method of getting Reshade to work with Mafia 3.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This guide is for those who cannot make Reshade 3.2.1 (or higher) work with Mafia 3 at the time this guide was written (17.04.2018). If the latest version of Reshade works fine for you, ignore this guide.
The specific problem this guide covers is Mafia 3 crashing at the launch splash logo when applying Reshade 3.2.1 on it. If you have a different problem related to Reshade, I suggest trying the solutions posted by Nyclix here[sfx.thelazy.net], or searching around the web.
The solution is to simply use Reshade 3.0.1 - an older version of Reshade. However, due to it no longer being supported, you will run into some installation issues. This guide will show you how to get around these issues.
Download Reshade 3.0.1[reshade.me] from the Reshade repository. (Courtesy of Evan20xx from the Reshade forums.)
Click on "Select Game".
Navigate to your Mafia 3 game directory and select Mafia3.exe.
Click on the Direct3D 10+ checkbox.
A pop-up will appear asking if you want to download a collection of standard effects from github. Select No, as selecting Yes will say "Failed to download archieve."
Close the program.
At this point, your Reshade 3.0.1 is installed but does not have any shaders/effects. What we will have to do is get them and put them in manually. To do this:
Open the reshade-shaders-master.zip file and extract the Shaders folder to somewhere. Preferably into Mafia 3's game folder. Copy the directory path inside of the Shaders folder (the path you copy should end with \Shader. The Shader folder contains .fx files, like 3DFX.fx, AdaptiveFog.fx, etc.)
Launch Mafia 3.
Press Shift+F2 to bring up the Reshade menu.
Go to the Settings tab.
In the Effect Search Paths section, paste/add the directory path of inside the Shaders folder that you extracted earlier. In the end, it should look something like this:
Remember that the Shaders folder is the folder that contains the .fx files.
Go to Home tab.
Create a new preset.
Click on Reload. (Alternatively, restart the game.)
Now your Reshade 3.0.1 has functioning shaders that you can customize manually after creating a profile in the Home tab, or use custom presets with. I suggest you complete its tutorial before fiddling with the shader settings.
Note: I highly recommend Nyclix's Colour Correction / Blur Removal Reshade preset[sfx.thelazy.net]. To use it, simply follow the instructions written there. Just skip the Reshade installation part, as you have already done that here. If you run into other problems, check out his list of solutions there as well. His preset also comes with an HDR shader, which you'll have to put into the Shaders folder.
If there is a problem with my guide or you need help in a relevant topic, feel free to leave a comment and I will have a look.
