Fullscreen crashes & clean ui issues.

The game currently doesn't work in fullscreen mode, only windowed. It crashes in fullscreen, but works perfect in windowed. I don't mind playing in windowed, I actually prefer it, but I'm trying to also figure out why clean ui isn't working for CAS.

My resolution is 1360x768. I have installed the "cas-min-width-1280-additional-200px" file & it still brings up only two columns in CAS. I wanted to try in fullscreen to see if it would work there, but since the game keeps crashing I can't test that. I have set my resolution in game to 1360 as well, & also tried all the others up to 1920 with no luck.

It did, however, work when I changed my display resolution to 1920, but then my screen was dark & blurry.

I also noticed the config log shows my graphics card being GeForce 7800 GTX instead of GeForce GTX 960 (I used graphics rule maker & it shows the 960 in my device info).

I have attached my dxdiag & my config log.

Edit: I think I got my game to stop crashing. I forgot to tick the first option for nvidia users, so far it loaded with no crashes. The extra columns worked. But I still prefer windowed mode. So I tried again right after, loading in via windowed mode & it reverted back to using two columns again =\

This is because you did the Dxdv3-whatever-it-is... which should only be used as a last resort. I had to remove it from my setup, as it caused too many problems.

Ah yes. I use that for reshade. As long as there are no other issues with the graphics card being named wrong, I'm okay with that.

I'm just still puzzled about the cleanui columns not working.
