This can be used in combination with any texture packs or add-ons.
To make adjustments to ENB, alter the enbseries.ini configuration settings file, found in the main folder.
To make adjustments to Sweetfx, go to \SweetFX\Presets and alter the Half Life 2.txt file.
The default settings file is located in the main folder, SweetFX_settings.txt. However, it is not used for the settings as the SweetFX_preset.txt file is directing it to the presets folder (alter to match, if you make change to location or name of settings file).

Alter ENB and SweetFX settings as you like.
Full ENB Download available here:
Enbdev.com
Full Sweetfx Download available here:

I hope you find these programs and adjustments helpful at making your Half Life 2 game more enjoyable.

You place the files in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life 2 then move only the d3d9.dll to the \Half-Life 2\bin

If you have trouble using this. Try the reshade and sweetfx.

Download this one, it's settings are basically the same for this game Nexusmods.com

Delete any of the enb and sweetfx files you placed, then run the ReShade Setup.exe from the rar file or extract it to a folder on the desktop and run it, don't place it in the game folder when you run it, it will install the files there.

Run it, then direct it to the game folder and apply it to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life 2\hl2.exe , set it on the bar to direct3d 9 after it detects the game. Close the bar.

Once installed, goto the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life 2 and move the sweetfx folder, d3d9.dll, ReShade.fx and Sweet.fx into the Bin folder.

Make this adjustment to the SweetFX_settings.txt in the sweetfx folder, set HDR settings, define HDRPower 1.3673 and define radius2 0.81287 (those are the HL2 #'s)
Turn off FXAA (set it to 0)if your game text looks smudgy.

Start the game. (you shouldn't need the mat fullbright with this one)
And you can run it with AntiAliasing On with this one.

For the hotkeys and bindings check the sweetfx/docs folder.
It uses sweetfx 2.0 and you can do changes on the fly.

For the dx install, run it, tell it to extract to c:\dx then goto c: drive and it should be listed, run the dxsetup file in the dx folder.

Hi,
I recently updated the files to correct a few issues. I've made video's and am updating as the video's go up. The description has been slightly altered and I'm just waiting for the gameplay video to switch to it's 1440p then I'll add those also. You'll find the new version more closely matches the game with the light tones, shading and radiance all being more closely matched as a clearview colormatch setting. It also matches up with the nexus version, so there is no issues and they are all the same. The older versions can be found on nexus also.

Very nice job, amazing work. Very impressed how nice looks game now. Also the best one is Collapsing Citadel (ep1 background_01), this one is especially amazing. Greatly improving graphics. Thanks for this :thumb_up:
