From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games
See Special K for further information and instructions on how to use the application.

General support[edit]

Use at own risk in multiplayer games where Special K might have an adverse effect.
This is a general overview of the level of support Special K has for different render APIs, as well as what additional features might be available for each API.
Direct3D refers to the 3D render API of DirectX. In general, the terms 'Direct3D' and 'DirectX' are often interchangeable when discussing games.
Render API Notes
DirectDraw
DDraw
Requires dgVoodoo 2 to wrap the calls to Direct3D 11.
Direct3D 2-8 Requires dgVoodoo 2 to wrap the calls to Direct3D 11.
Direct3D 9 Basic support as well as texture modding support. Shader modding support is limited.
Direct3D 10 No support.
Direct3D 11 Enhanced support, including HDR injection, texture modding, flip model override, and shader debugging.
Direct3D 12 No in-game render support, but Special K can still be used (through manual config file changes) to improve frame pacing.
OpenGL Basic support.
Vulkan No support, except in HDR enabled modes running on Nvidia hardware, where Special K hooks the Nvidia DXGI/Direct3D 11 interop layer instead.

How to add a new game to the table[edit]

The following describes how to add a new game to the below table. It is recommended to use a desktop browser as that makes it more easier to copy/paste.
  1. Start by opening up the following link in a new tab: edit the below section
  2. Now go by the |name = parameter alphabetically to find the appropriate place to add the new game to the list. This is to ensure the list is sorted alphabetically when the page is opened.
  3. Copy the following template and insert it on a new row between }} and {{Special K/compatibility/row so that a new, empty, section gets added:
    {{Special K/compatibility/row
    |name           = 
    |render api     = 
    |version        = 
    |injection type = 
    |status         = 
    |notes          = 
    }}
    
  4. Fill out the new section something like below. Use comma to separate multiple values.
    {{Special K/compatibility/row
    |name           = Insert game name here
    |render api     = Direct3D 9, Direct3D 11, OpenGL, etc (multiple are allowed in a comma-delimited list)
    |version        = 0.11.0.45 (right click on the DLL file, select Properties, and then open the Details tab to see the version of the DLL file)
    |injection type = Local, Global (multiple are allowed)
    |status         = Perfect/Good/Major Issues/Crash/Blocked/Caution/Banned (select only one)
    |notes          = And additional notes here that might apply (for example, specific config parameter required, or incompatible features or such). Feel free to use multiple rows for this section.
    }}

This is a crowdsourced list of games compatible with Special K. Feel free to edit the section if a game is missing from the list.
Status Description
Perfect For use with games with no known issues with Special K.
Good For games where minor issues or limitations exists. This can for example be games that are only supported by a specific version of Special K, or only through one type of injection (e.g. local and not global).
Major Issues For games where major issues occurs, but can be worked around. Such as crashes on launch that can be worked around by changing a config parameter for Special K.
Crash Game crashes on injection with no way of working around it.
Blocked Game blocks Special K from being injected -- most common in games with anti-cheat protections.
Caution There is conflicting reports whether using Special K results in a ban or not. Use at your own risk.
Banned Using Special K is known to result in a banned account. Do not use Special K with this game.

Online games to avoid[edit]

Using Special K in these games can result in an account ban. Use Special K at your own risk.

Final Fantasy V OpenGL 0.11.0.45 Local Major Issues Neither Special K nor even the Steam overlay can hook the game window properly on a fresh install, in parts because the game ships with a OpenGL32.dll file from Windows 7 in the game folder. To fix both, that file needs to be removed (this fixes the Steam overlay), then Special K's 32-bit DLL file needs to be installed as OpenGL32.dll in the game folder instead. After that both Special K and Steam's overlay will work, although launching the game will take about 5-10 seconds longer. Global injection does not succeed in hooking the game at all.[2]

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 The game will take 20-40 seconds longer to launch, and when it finally launches Special K will have failed to render anything on it.

    "yep, I can confirm this and I know of several other people who got banned with that version. I personally still use v0.4.0 and, playing with an alt account, I haven't been banned in over two years.."
