Re: AI Upscaled Textures

I think I may have uncovered the solution to getting BIMP working while researching how to batch with Scheme. I think I might give it another try before I go through the pain of re-coding the whole thing in Scheme. Thanks for bringing it up! I fiddled with it for about 2 hours last night and I stil...

Re: AI Upscaled Textures

In PSP I can choose a number of files in a folder, and they will all process using a script I choose and save to another folder I've set. Can't GIMP do something similar? GIMP has a plugin called BIMP that can batch process multiple images following registered scripts/filters. I tried it and it onl...

Re: AI Upscaled Textures

1) Obviously some assets were created at a low resolution from scratch. Is that obvious? I can't say for sure they were originally drawn at higher resolution then downscaled. Likewise, I can't say for sure that you're wrong. 2) Now onto the pre-rendered sprites which are the most promising venue wi...

"What a beautiful garment your honor, So refined and regal"
Judge: "You see, bailiff? This guy gets it! I told you this robe was dank. You guys are just jealous!"

Jayhova: "So... am I free to go?"

Judge: *hitting the blunt again* "What?! Who are you?! Oh, *cough* yeah you can go."

Re: Screenshot thread

Shouldn't the judge be in a robe rather than naked? :D How you gonna judge the judge like that? It's his courtroom, he'll be naked if he wants! ;) How will you convince the judge to put on a robe? Debate, or lie? I'd also like to animate the game over video and the still image of the skeletons that...

Re: Experimental Daggerfall Deathmatch

For now I don't have time to work on this further so it will pretty much stay as it is
So you think you can just show up from nowhere and drop this massive achievement in our faces and then just leave?! You get right back here mister and implement DFU coop! :lol:

In all seriousness, well done!

Re: AI Upscaled Textures

Back to Daggerfall NPCs, I did a few more tests with the higher resolution flats (innkeep, guards, royalty), and honestly I came to the conclusion that ESRGAN cannot properly handle faces at all. With this in mind, I deiced to fall back to the method I proposed earlier with blending xBR/xBRZ upscal...

Re: AI Upscaled Textures

You're the man, Phredreeke! Thanks for processing those masks! My goal with the Duke3D and now Blood upscales is to retain the aesthetic of the original sprites while at a higher resolution. And I think you achieved your goal quite well. I agree that there is some intangible characteristic that gets...
