PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds won’t work with Reshade installed, may also block NVIDIA Shadowplay

Bluehole Studio has announced that it will release its anti-cheat update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. However, and even though at first Reshare was allowed, this new anti-cheat system will not be compatible with it. As such, players will have to completely uninstall Reshade in order to play PUBG.

As PUBG’s Community Manager said:

“One of the popular programs that will be blocked is ReShade. You will not be banned for having it on system but you will no longer be able to play PUBG while it is installed. Please uninstall ReShade (or any other blocked program) and launch the game again. Some players may find that reinstalling PUBG is also necessary.”

Furthermore, this new system may temporarily block other programs too, like the NVIDIA Shadowplay. A lot of players have used Shadowplay in order to capture and stream videos, so that may become a big issue for streamers. Not only that, but this new anti-cheat system may temporarily block other video/audio capture programs.

“Some programs that do not affect gameplay may be blocked temporarily (NVIDIA ShadowPlay, video / audio capture programs, etc.) as we hone the new anti-cheat features. We will be dealing with these cases as soon as possible.”
