UNX whitescreen when loading external reshade

Trying to load external reshade 4.8.1 to use the latest shaders from Pascal Gilcher
But I’ve been getting stuck at a white screen when loading the game after disabling the internal reshade and enabling external reshade.
Reshade is installed in Documents\My Mods\SpecialK\PlugIns\ThirdParty\ReShade
with ReShade32.dll and reshade-shaders folder.

any ideas?

PS: it doesn’t create a log unless I set load order to “early” but then it also freezes with the white screen…
