Tomatoshade failed to initialize

Postby mars » Tue Dec 31, 2019 1:24 pm

Hey all,

sorry i am kind of newbie to P3D and the related addons... Right now i have a problem with Tomatoshade as the program failed to initialize because of invalid shaders. The error and the problem are already widely discussed but it did not find any helpful answer so far.

Shader integrity invalid for PostProcess\HDR.hlsl
Shader integrity invalid for GPUTerrain.fx
Shader integrity invalid for General.fx
Shader integrity invalid for FuncLibrary.fxh
Shader integrity valid for Cloud.fx
Shader integrity invalid for ParticleDraw.fx

The problem is, that i already reinstalled the client.msi and replaced the the invalid shaders from the hsl file from the shaderbackup file from Tomatoshade. It didnt not change anything...

I just have installed the orbx base back and made some lightning configuration via orbx base as addons. That's it. So there is no PTA or other programm relevant for this error.

I am thankful for any further hint.

Thanks & BEst regards,

Mars

Hi Mars,

Have you reached out to the add-on developer for support with this issue?

Hi Brad,

no i did not as it is freeware and i and do not expect further support. I just thought that TS might be a very popular addon and that many of the user have experience with it.

But i will also try this way, to contact TS.

Thanks so far

Hi Mars,

Perhaps others familiar with the add-on will be able to help further, but one thing to double check is that the add-on is compatible with the Prepar3D version you have installed. You can also try deleting your generated files before reinstalling the add-on.

I would stay away from Tomatoshade as it totally messed up my system. Could not unload program without deleting shaders which led to all of my aircraft with heavy reflections. do not use
