Please ensure the following:
If you have modified your game's .exe file yourself, the mod will not work - to undo this, delete the file and verify your game through GOG, Steam or Epic to download a fresh copy of the newest exe.
You are using a patch that is not supported (currently only 1.12 is supported).
You used the old version of the mod and still have the old files installed. Delete bin/x64/plugins/ and reinstall the mod.
Install this - if nothing happens, please make sure all of your overlays are disabled.
Cyber Engine Tweaks no longer comes with a config file, one is generated when you first launch the mod.
When first launching cyber engine tweaks, it will prompt you to pick a keybind. Tilde is no longer the default.
Certain programs conflict with the hook that Cyber Engine Tweaks use to display the console - to avoid this, disable any software with overlays that may impact the mod (some examples below). OBS graphics-hook32.dll and graphics-hook64.dll can also interfere. Do a search of your windows files to see if you have a program running them. For rivatuner, you can also open the Global file, which is located in RivaTuner Statistics Server\ProfileTemplates and add cyber_engine_tweaks.asi to the end of the decimal in the line: InjectionDelayTriggers
Please verify that:
Your version of Cyberpunk is compatible with the newest release on GitHub or Nexus (this can be seen in the menu, underneath "Quit Game")
The installation guide has been followed correctly
You have verified that the log found in
bin/x64/plugins/cyber_engine_tweaks/cyber_engine_tweaks.log is 'last modified' at the same time and date as your most recent attempt to launch the game
Remove all previous mods in the mods folder and try to launch the game. If it works, add your mods back one by one until you find the one that breaks CET. Some mods can break CET completely or change the overlay colour if they are not up to date.
Make sure cyber engine tweaks and your mods are installed with hardlink deployment If hardlink doesn't show up under vortex, make sure the Vortex Mods folder is on the same partition as the game mods folder.
There are four possible solutions to this:
Ensure your game is in Windowed Borderless mode - Cyberpunk will usually make itself the topmost application on your screen if in fullscreen.
Ensure you don't have any overlay software running such as Rivatuner, Fraps, etc.
Make sure your game is up to date and you are using the latest version of Cyber Engine Tweaks and that you installed it properly. (do a clean install by deleting the plugins folder, LICENSE, global.ini, version.dll files if you are running into a problem)
Run the game as administrator. (this works for some people where other methods have failed)
Delete the hotkeys.json and config.json files located in
bin/x64/plugins/cyber_engine_tweaks/ and start your game, the overlay to choose a new keybind should come up.
