By code:net Legends
Using SweetFX 2.0 in Dota 2 Reborn update
1. Installing SweetFX 2.0

1. Download SweetFX 2.0[]

2. Extract it to any folder. (Use 7Zip[] if you don't have any available tools to extract)

3. Open "ReShade Setup.exe"

4. Press Select Game button and browse to this folder.
Go into win32 folder if you're using a 32 bit computer , otherwise go into win64 folder. In my case , I'll use win64.

5. Select dota2.exe

6. It will say "auto-detection failed". Do not panic as it is normal.

7. Select Direct3D 9 and it will start installing.

2. Installing Preset

1. Download my preset from here[]

2. Rename it to "SweetFX_settings.txt".

3. Copy and overwrite it to the SweetFX Folder.
3. Modifying Preset
The preset from above might makes your dota a little bit dark. You can follow the following steps to fine tune the preset.

1. Open "SweetFX_settings.txt" in SweetFX folder.

2. Find
#define HDRPower 1.50

3. Modify the value to a lower value to make it brighter, Vice-versa.
