ReShade is a fully generic post-processing injector for videogames developed by crosire. ReShade exposes an automated and generic way to improve your frame color and depth information. Reshade can give you full fixes of blurrings, lack of colors, sharpness, depth in field effects and so on. It’s basically turning something HD to Full HD you might say.
There was a time where gamers could enjoy playing using ReShade in PUBG. That was before PUBG implemented the anti-cheat software to the game. Blocking all third-party programs controlling the PUBG files. In a patch note, developers talked about this measure and their explanation for this was;
”We are testing a new anti-cheat solution on our test servers this week and it is to block cheats more effectively. This will also block 3rd party programs that modify the gameplay or visuals in an invasive way. Reshade is one of the programs that will be blocked by this measure.”
Unfortunately, players who want to improve or adjust their visual settings via software like ReShade cannot do it anymore because of the anti-cheat implemented to the PUBG views any third party software as a ”cheat”. However, ReShade had this one shader that zooms in the screen that would give it’s users too much advantage and for that reason, it had to be blocked from the game.
