Photorealistic reshade for Portal 2 that makes the game look like it was released this year

This can be installed for almost any game in addition to Portal 2, but the installation process will vary. Here is a version for Half-Life 2 (and all Half-Life 2-based games): Nexusmods.com

How to install:

1. Download this mod and the latest version of Reshade from: Reshade.me
2. Run the .exe installer you downloaded
3. Press select game, and navigate to \steamapps\common\Portal 2\bin
4. Select vvis.exe and press ok, tick the box that says Direct3D 9
5. The program will ask you if you want to download a collection of standard effects, click yes.
6. Make sure everything is selected and press OK
7. Close the installer
8. Place the Aperture.ini and ReShade.ini from this zip into \steamapps\common\Portal 2\
9. Place the filmlut.png file into \Portal 2\bin\reshade-shaders\Textures
10. Launch the game, press the home key to open reshade menu
11. Select the aperture reshade preset by pressing the small arrows at the top of the menu

Done, you can use the tickboxes to disable / enable effects you want. It is important to keep the LUT tickbox enabled.

I have Reshade 6.1.0 Running on GT 730 Windows 7 Ultimate computer. Some effects aren't enabled when aperture.ini preset was loaded. However, enabling LUT makes the screen go black.

I should probably make it clear that Portal 2 technically runs DirectX 11. Not DirectX 9, otherwise it crashes to the desktop because of the D3D9.dll file from reshade when you move it to the bin as necessary for source games like Half Life 2 that actually run DirectX 9

And I say this because Portal 2 requires your graphics card to be able to use DirectX 11. (Which is the 400 series GTX's and beyond.)

And, I correct myself on this, as while trying to install Reshade onto not only Portal 2, but also Portal Stories Mel and Black Mesa, I figured out that you shouldn't have the DXGI files in them otherwise it causes conflicts, and the games don't run. Make sure you installed the correct one, don't make mistakes like me...
