I downloaded the latest version of special K located here. I installed it correctly after removing the older version I had installed due to PCgamingwiki telling me to do so. I was able to start up Resident Evil HD, then heard the ba-dam! sound effect and the game closed.
Located here Is the crash log for the game when it happened. Please let me know if I can give you guys any more information, I really enjoy resident evil and was able to get all the other mods to work correctly. Get this one right and I am good to go.
Edit: I was able to get it to work with Resident Evil 4, with the overlay, which is not present with the resident evil 1 HD attempt.
