ESRGAN AI upscaling
« on: April 02, 2019, 10:20:23 pm »
Hey, been years since i've popped in here; saw SFC on GOG recently, and nabbed a copy.

while playing, I was thinking about a modern remake etc; then how the ESRGAN AI texture packs are showing up in FF7, Morrowind and Doom and exposing amazing details out of the original textures.
Just wondered if anyone here has looked at it or experimented already?

Here a link if anyone is curious

Yeah we’ve looked into that.  Although maybe not that particular program. You can follow the discussions here:

We’ve got all kinds of things going on over there.  Including online Dyna, new and improved (IMHO) ship list, new space backgrounds and a lot of bug fixes.
