Hi! As the title says, I have indeed made the error to install ReShade!! How to uninstall properly, please; anyone has an idea? I ask this, because my camera moves too fast now, it's unmanageable... Sad Thanks!

No need to bump... if anyone knows how to fix it, anyone will come tell you.

Sorry for the annoyance @BoilingOil , thanks for your answer.

No need for apologies, @poisson, my French fish! I understand that it's frustrating if you don't hear anything. Actually, I find it odd that nobody has responded yet. I would expect that others must have wanted or needed to get rid of ReShade! as well.

Did the documentation with the program/mod not give any ideas how to adjust the camera movement speed?

I think if you go to Numenor's CEP page on MTS - he has the original Maxis cameras as a back up. Or maybe it's Tom Duhmal's or Sopie-David's Camera mods that have the back up? (And Numenor has the lights backed up?) I don't know and MTS is down (for me) right now...
But, my thought is, restore your cameras from a backup, and they should be good.
I know nothing of reshade. I haven't tried any of those "new-fangled" things with my game.
Good luck!

Um, pretty sure reshade doesn't alter the camera speed and it definitely doesn't alter any of the camera or lighting txt files. You should be able to turn off reshade in game, might have been F12? to get options. I just deleted all the files that reshade installed in tsbin folder when I uninstalled.

Hi HL, Smile actually, I only have two choices: either I get some very pink glitches in-game (if I delete the following files: d3d9.dll and dxgi.dll), or I get the very, very fast camera (if I keep those files)...
I fully uninstalled the game through Origin and reinstalled it: and it seems the ReShade thingies are still there (indeed, I have a small notification at the start of the game)...

Thank you very much, anyway, HL, that you came and had a look at my problem. Wink Smile If you can help me further, would be cool. <3

I wouldn't delete d3d9.dll in any case. Have you tried deleting only dxgi.dll?

#9 04-03-2022 
Hey dear BO! Smile Have just tried it. The camera speed is always and still very high using the mouse, with only dxgi.dll, and with both files. Do you think that there is, perhaps, a file, to modify the camera speed itself when using a mouse?

Hmm, we must misunderstand each other... I was curious what happened if you kept only d3d9.dll, and removed dxgi.dll. Your answer seems to suggest you kept dxgi, and removed d3d9, exactly the opposite.

I really don't know anything about what files control which settings, but I'll see what I can do...

EDIT: here's two files that I found in Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Cameras. These files contain references to mouseheadingsensitivity, mousepitchsensitivity, and mousewheelsensitivity.
Perhas if you compare the numbers for these settings with those in your own files, it might give you an idea of what might be wrong. I don't know what else to suggest at the moment.
