I can't get this to work, when I try to select the aperture.ini preset, the menu doesn't let me. What's happening?

edit: I got it to show up but no effect options or anything appears in the box.

Does this improve the quite bad shadows in half-life 2?

It's a button on your keyboard that says "Home".

Good looking, performing and balanced preset, bloom can be overbearing at times on maps with HDR, thankfully that can be easily rectified, great work!
