Escape From Tarkov blocks “DWM_lut” to retain fairplay

First Nvidia Freestyle, now DWM_lut goes down the drain.

Escape From Tarkov is probably the most realistic and punishing first-person shooter out there. Currently, in Beta, the game has no goals reached, and it’s still developing as we course throughout the timeline. While still in Early Access, players want to enhance their gameplay experience by improving the game’s imagery by using a variety of third-party applications, for which Battlestate Games is very strict.

On Monday, the developer revealed that yet another image enhancer from the likes of Nvidia Freestyle had been put to a halt. That is DWM_lut, another program that allows the use of specific filters that cannot be accessed via the game.

As per the official announcement by Battlestate Games:

DWM_lut is now officially blocked due to the large number of uses of specific filters to obtain an unfair advantage. If you are having problems with launching the game – remove DWM_lut/files from the PC, otherwise the game will be unavailable.

Furthermore, the developer potentiated that there won’t be bans associated with DWM_lut, which means anyone using it will still be able to play the game but will be forced to do it without it. However, Battlestate Games didn’t forget to mention that the use of any similar software in the future will be considered a breach of the game’s Terms of Service and probably result in a ban.
