Assetto Corsa: How to Install Mods and Shaders

In this tutorial, I will show you how to install mods, shaders.
In this tutorial, we need to install a content manager.


Installing Content Manager

Content Manager

first you need download link:
link[] – download only from this site

– Unpack “Content Manager.exe” anywhere;
– That’s all.

It’s better to use some not read-only location, so app will be able to
auto-update itself periodically.

Don’t forget to go to settings and install all addons you want. I didn’t
include them into main exe-file, otherwise it’d be way too big.(you also can read README.txt)

Working with Content Manager

How to open this?
In youre desktop you shoud have file Content Manager.exe
Now you shoud start ASC with this app.

  • Its better than default menu
  • One click for install mods

Ok, now you got this window:

now press this button:

and install everything (.7zip,.Zip …)
After this you ready to install mods.

Installing Mods

You have 2 ways for install mods

  • – Drop .zip file in Content manager –
  • – Unpack and drop files in game folder

1.With Content manager
You need drop youre mod in Content Manager(in .Zip)
and press:

2.Drop ingame folder
First its open youre .zip file(Dont touch Folder!Dont unpack them!!!!)
Next open game folder:
Go to Library-Find Assetto corsa – press browse local files

Place files at Cars.
If you have map Mod:
Place files at Tracks.
Thats all(you may need to restart content manager).

Installing Shader

What shader shoud I download?
i dont know)Download which you like.
But i will show you on Horison Shader from this screenshot:


Now in MOD Horizon Shades:

1 – This new version does not use Reshade, if you already have Reshade installed from the previous version or another MOD
(If you have never used Reshade or don’t even have it installed, just proceed without doing this step)

2 – Copy what’s inside the folder: “2 – Copy in Content Manager” (Custom Shaders Patch Presets and Video Settings)
in this Local Folder: “C:\Users\”your user here”\AppData\Local\AcTools Content Manager\Presets” (Usually this directory is hidden and you will need to go to Folder Options in the Tools
menu and Activate Show hidden files, folders and drives).

3 – Copy what’s inside the folder “3 – Copy in Assetto Corsa” in the directory where the game is Asseto Corsa game is installed. (Overwrite All files).
