  • Select Direct3D 9
  • Click Ok twice, and install
  • Go to the folder containing Battlefront2.exe, enter the reshade-shaders directory, and the Textures directory within, and paste natural-lut-reshade.png inside (example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\reshade-shaders\Textures.
  • Load up SWBF2
  • Press Home on your keyboard, skip the ReShade tutorial, and create a new profile
  • Click on LUT [LUT.fx], open the preprocessor definitions tab at the bottom, and replace "lut.png" with "natural-lut-reshade.png", and press enter on your keyboard to apply.
  • Enjoy your new colours!
