    DO NOTE:
    There has been an update today (6/1/2021), do make sure before reporting that it's not working anymore that you have updated strackers loader and any other plugin you have downloaded in the past. If you are unsure, rename your nativePc folder and run MHW again, and see if it loads, if it does then there is an incompatible mod. If it doesn't load, then please run the following mod first https://www.nexusmods.com/monsterhunterworld/mods/3191?tab=posts and then proceed to provide as much detail as possible.


    The updated file updates ReShade64.dll to the latest version, and also updates ReShade.ini to use C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Monster Hunter World\reshade-shaders folder by default to pick up your reshade shaders. You will still need to select the folders if this is not your default location, and you will still need to select your preset, if it's not named already picked.

    Documentation
    I've added a separate download with screenshots for those that need a more visual guide on how to set this up, please find it under the optional files section.

    Troubleshooting
    Issue with ReShade not showing banner:
    If you have issues with the injection method not showing ReShade banner after a few seconds of MHW loading, try running the program as Administrator.

    Worked first time, but not on further loading of MHW
    This WILL need to be ran EVERY time, it doesn't modify the base executable but rather modifies it at runtime by injecting the DLL into the executable. It is not permanent, but temporary during the lifetime of the launched executable. You can use it as the launcher for MHW, it is Stracker's Loader compatible, and uses steam natively to load MH, so your game time, steam overlay etc will still work. 

    Default Home Button not opening ReShade Menu
    If the Home button is not working when trying to open the ReShade menu, Open the ReShade.ini and replace/add the following lines, it will allow you to press Shift+F2 to open the ReShade menu instead of the home button or download the alternative ReShade.ini config in the optional files section:
    [INPUT]
    KeyScreenshot=44,0,0,0
    InputProcessing=2
    KeyWireframe=0,0,0,0
    KeyEffects=0,0,0,0
    KeyReload=0,0,0,0
    KeyMenu=113,0,1,0

    Issue setting up ReShade shaders/texture/preset paths
    If you are having issues setting it up, use the ReShade.ini provided, go in-game and goto the ReShade menu by pressing "Home" button, then settings and you'll see several settings. 

    The base directory for your shaders/textures are in your Monster Hunter World directory under reshade-shaders e.g. (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Monster Hunter World\reshade-shaders).

    Do note, the paths I'm showing below are my own, yours may vary depending on where you had MHW installed before.

    1) You will want to select the Effect Search paths, press the + button and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Monster Hunter World\reshade-shaders\shaders
    2) Select Texture search paths, press the + button and navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Monster Hunter World\reshade-shaders\textures 
    3) This will of setup the paths of where to load your shaders/textures from, but not the preset yet. Next go back to the Home menu (default page when opening ReShade menu) at the top you will see "DefaultPreset" and can click this to navigate to your presets, find your default Ini that you usually use mine is named "DefaultPreset.ini" in the base directory. If it doesn't show the shaders in the list, click "Performance Mode" toggle and it should refresh your list, or restart the game for it to find the shaders and refresh the list and it should have you setup like before!

    Is it possible to launch it without admin rights so that there isn't a UAC prompt? "Run as administrator" is unchecked in the properties.

    It seems that the Injector is not compatible for the most recent World Version 

    DX12 is checked (i didn't tested it with DX11, but there is no reason, because the DX11 renderer cripples performance on my Setup) and i started World with the Injector Helper (also with admin rights), but ReShade won't simply load.

    Steam Overlay is deactivated as well and i have no Mods installed. Basically a fresh install

      I've tested it with the latest version of world, and it seems all fine to me. I'd suggest a clean install of MHW or if you use Mods like strackers loader it may be out of date and needs updated.

      Can you make a detailed installation instruction video? I'm really bad at technology and can't follow instructions.
      p/s: google translate, sorry

      As annoying as this may be, you may need to reinstall MH world again. The helper uses a global command to steam to launch a certain game (mhw in this instance), so if steam isn't launching the game, it is something to do with steam or the MHW installation.

    A simple question, sorry if its stupid Im new to modding mhw. So basically I need to launch this injector every time, use it as launcher. I dont need to launch mod manager on its own ? and HunterPie should also be launched separately yes?

      I haven't done much testing yet, but at this point I'm gonna say you do need to launch the reshade helper each time to launch the game.
      I can't say anything about hunterPie though as I don't use overlays, should be safe to assume you would need to though.

      Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

      You do need to relaunch the reshade helper each time, as currently the "wrapper" which would normally work for reshade just isn't working for MHW. So the helper just launches the reshade process injector to watch for the mhw.exe, which it will then attach itself to and launch with reshade for you.

      It's not an ideal workaround, but it's certainly better than no reshade! I don't use hunter pie, but from what I've done in the past is, run hunter pie then the helper and they should both work together.

    CONFIRMED WORKING Oct. 1st, 2021. Thank you, keegars!

    I added the .exe to my list of Steam games, renamed it Monster Hunter: World and hid the real MHW in the list. You can even set the icon to be the same icon/image as MHW, so I can't even tell the difference now. Works with HunterPie, Stracker's, etc etc.

      Thanks for confirming! It's been awhile since I've played MHW (rise has been addictive...), so I'm glad it is still working.

    Is there a way to add Reshade Injector Helper to launch options so every time you launch the game through steam it executes the injector helper rather than MHWexe?
    I tried to create windows batch file with MHW injector hepler path copied inside it but it just keeps opening CMD windows "waiting for mhw process to spawn" without actually launching the game.

      You can add a non-steam game to steam, select the MHW Injector Helper.exe, and then you can update the icon if you wish. The program uses a global shortcut that asks steam to launch MHW, which is why it is waiting for mhw process to spawn", as if steam doesn't launch it...there is nothing for it to attach to.

    Hello there.

    I could running this program before.
    But then idk why, everytime I click the .exe, there's warning that commands me to install VCRUNTIME140.dll
    Then I install it to Windows/System32.
    But now everytime I click the .exe, the warning now said: "the application was unable to start correctly, CLick OK to close the application."

    Any solution, please?

      Hi there, 

      Seems like you've never installed the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables before for running programs, I suggest trying the following: (This is taken directly from the following page if you are wondering: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads-2647da03-1eea-4433-9aff-95f26a218cc0


      Also side note: I'd be very careful downloading random dll's off of the internet and placing them in your windows\system32 folder, as that can lead to system instability or malware if you aren't careful where you are getting it from.

    So not sure why but Reshade injection only succeeds every other game launch. Every time I launch the game, I have to exit and relaunch for the injection to succeed.

    I'm having trouble with this. Everything works fine, except I cannot pick any presets. I have a couple sitting in the same folder that the reshade injector is in and none of them show up in reshade in-game.

    I've tried the workaround/fix stuff for not having a "home" button, shift + f2 still doesn't open the menu. Any ideas of what I can do?
