This is a simple Reshade preset with non-RTX & non-DX12 RT ray tracing effect* that I tried to make it work with TDU2. Press shift + F12 to open the panel and adjust the graphics settings in-game.
This graphics mod ran ~40 fps consistently on a 2013 laptop with nVidia GeForce 750M, fyi.
Just move the files to where the actual game executable file is.
If you can't play TDU2 because you have an nVidia RTX graphics card then do the steps below!**
Delete D3D9.DLL, if it is in the TDU2 directory
Get DirectX9 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=8109
Extract the files wherever on your PC
Out of the extracted files, find and run the DXSETUP.exe and finish installing the DX9.
Install this ReShade mod and enjoy!
