Windows 10 users: (PLEASE READ)
The Creators update for Windows 10 introduced a wide variety of problems, especially for games with custom renders.
If you encounter problems like messed-up graphics or extreme slowdowns, then read how to fix it here: (LINK)
*Follow the steps in number 4.

If the game runs fine, but still looks messed up (Black sky, missing UI) the press, Ctrl + Alt + Delete in-game, and select "Task Manager". Close the task manager again without doing anything, and return to the game.
This will reload ReShade, and everything should look fine.

If nothing work, then Windows 10 is somehow still blocking the custom render file.
Search Google for alternative ways of forcing Windows 10 to use custom d3d files.
...Or, if you are unable to fix it, then just remove the ReShade.
Delete the "d3d9.dll" file but keep everything else. This will disable ReShade effects, but keep the natural colors.
