ReShade preset for Mass Effect 2.

Permissions and credits

This is a lightweight ReShade preset I made for Mass Effect 2. Nothing fancy or over-the-top, just a subtle change meant to enhance vanilla visuals. No noticeable performance impact either. It should also work with the other two games.

Illusive ReShade Mass Effect 3


1 - Download and install ReShade (select the ME2 executable, click on Direct3D 9 and select Yes to download the shader suite).
2 - Pick the following effects: LUT, SMAA & LumaSharpen.
3 - Download my file, extract it, copy reshade me2.ini to Mass Effect 2\Binaries and lut.png to Mass Effect 2\reshade-shaders\Textures.
4 - Start the game and the preset should be active. If not, open the ReShade GUI (Home) and select reshade me2.ini.
5 - Enable Performance Mode if you aren't making any changes.

1 - Enable downsampling using DSR or VSR to further reduce jaggies and improve picture quality.
2 - Use Nvidia Profile Inspector to force AO and AA if needed. Note: AO can look funky in certain areas.


I made this preset for personal use but since there are hardly any ReShade presets for this game on the Nexus, I decided to upload it here. If you have any issues, let me know in the comments section. And if you like it, then kindly endorse it.
