[FE9] High Resolution Texture Pack For Dolphin

#1

Hello. ヾ(•ω•`)o

Background:
Over the past few months I’ve been working on and off on a texture pack for FE9.
I was replaying the game on my 4k TV and thought it looked less than “radiant” (‾◡◝).
I have few years of experience with photoshop and recently have been incorporating esrgan into my setup. The goal of this project was to produce textures that look almost exactly like the oringinals, just sharper. :slight_smile:
ESRGAN lets you train models for image scaling, and finetune image results. After some work I was able to get 2 models that work well both for sprites, and for the textures for 3d models.
Consider this an alpha release with bugs.

If you find any texture does not work or looks glitchy, please post it in the thread so I can fix it. Thank you very much (✿◡‿◡)

Main post:

Version 0.0.1 Alpha
This texture pack is for the dolphin emulator.
It contains almost every single texture in game (except for movies) in 4x original resolution.
Textures have been upscaled using a variety of tools to maintain accuracy to the original.
When needed textures have been edited by hand to remove error and glitching.
This version has issues with character faces.
They are listed in “optional” folder and can be deleted if desired.

Requirements

  1. A legal copy of FE:PoR
  2. Dolphin Emu installed on your PC
  3. A GPU that supports DX10+

I was just thinking about replaying PoR, so I guess I’ll give these a go
