Packaging Reshade Effects with Coppercube

2022-01-23 00:38:06

Is there any way to package Reshade ( effects with Coppercube .exe's so that the shader effects run natively and cannot be changed or removed by the end user? I don't want the end user to be able to change the effects; on purpose or by mistake.

Obviously there is the legality of this consider and I wouldn't ever do this without reaching out to the Reshade team and getting explicit permission. But for now I am simply wondering if it is even possible.

I would say anything is possible with the correct knowlegde. As it's a post-process injector, it would probably take quite a bit of work to integrate reshade shaders directly into coppercube for internal deployment. It would be probably be easier for you to learn to re-write the shaders.

A far simpler method to consider would be to use "NSIS installer/launcher" to package reshade along with your coppercube.exe yourself so they all get installed together by the user on first-run.

This way, you can also package any of the required fonts you've used in your project, so everything can be installed in one go. You can also give options for the user to skip reshade install if they don't want it.

If you use NSIS Installer/Launcher, it's best to install to "User/Documents/" folder; avoid installing directly to the clients "Program Files/" or "Program x86/" folders - to avoid common problems associated with elevated write permissions and conflicts between the different folder layouts of windows editions/versions.

Thanks this is good info. Ill keep in mind using NSIS. I would ideally like to be able to rewrite the shaders and cut out the need for ReShadr altogether, but I have no clue where I would even begin with that.
