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.nexusmod.../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!

Thank you for this, I found the issue on reshade's forums and gave up trying to manually make the solution provided. This saves me a lot of time ^.^

SpecialK hasn't provided meaningful performance improvements for a long time now. It also messes with the game (which is already pretty poorly coded) in ways which can cause severe instability and other issues.

Most of the performance issues have been patched by now anyway but if you have a weaker CPU (well, less threads) you're way better off just using Strackers + Performance plugin.

Reshade, while it will affect performance, allows you to apply various shaders and is overall less intrusive than SpecialK. Personally I use it to get actually decent AA because the ingame implementations are absolutely horrible (they just blur everything like crazy)

Thank you so much for this, game looks insanely dried out without reshade. Call me an idiot if you must but this process is a pain in the ass to do without a visual walk-through, if someone could even just post screenshots of where to put the files etc would be amazing, as of currently I do not understand how to get this to work and load my preset properly. Thanks again!
