Did you install under the correct DirectX version?

My game crashes at startup,I followed the instructions exactly.I have in my "reshade-shaders>Shaders" folder FakeHdr.fx,Levels.fx,LumaSharpen.fx,Reshade.fxh,SMAA.fx,SMAA.fxh,Tonemap.fx,Vignette.fx.
Please help.

No Problem.
"ReShade loads all presets placed in the game directory automatically (both *.ini and *.txt)." ^_^

Thanks for the installation instructions! I am pretty sure you need to rename the extension ".txt" to ".ini" but I might be wrong since I make all of my own presets.

Install Instructions:
1) Download Latest ReShade
2) Launch ReShade Setup exe
3) Click "Select Game"
4) move to install path and select the sdhdship.exe or however your game exe's name is.
5) Tick Direct3D 10+
6) Download ALL Shaders and Effects
7) Open Game Path, move to reshade-shaders->shaders
8) Delete not needed Effects (increased loading speed, loading over 40+ Shaders takes many time but this Config only use some of them)
What you should have at least: HDR.fx, Levels.fx, LumaSharpen.fx, SMAA.fx, SMAA.fxh, Tonemap.fx, Vignette.fx, ReShade.fxh
9) Copy the downloaded SweetFX_Settings_Sleeping Dogs_ Definitive _Better Sleeping Dogs _ Ultra Realism.txt to the Game path (root folder)
10) After the game started, press Shift + F2 to open the menu. Follow the tutorial (continue, dropdown menu select the Setting, continue, continue, finish, click X Button upper right corner)

That's it. I hope its explained Step BY Step ^_^

THIS is the BEST SweetFX.

The Definitive Edition cranked up Contrast and Fog Level to be more "realistic"....
You dont simply remove the Fog and darken the Game like many others, its impressive how you done this, that is how it should look like ^^

Fantastic
