Re: AI Upscaled Textures

Yeah, I think you're right that the DeToon helps to soften the result better. How are you compounding the interpolations? Are you running net_interp.py 0.5 with Fatality and Rebout, then running net_interp.py 0.5 with interp_05.pth and Detoon? Basically yes, except of course I renamed interp_05.pth...

Re: AI Upscaled Textures

It does extremely well on the NPC portraits and I think that is the key to quickly touching up the upscale NPC flats such as below. Upscaled 47-0.png The results are quick and easy and look very vanilla friendly. I couldn't but notice those jiggety lines on the guy's right shoulder (to the viewer's...

Re: AI Upscaled Textures

So after a somewhat lengthy break I resumed my experiments (thanks to Phredreeke who intrigued me with the info about the Fatality model). I checked out the models listed here and more or less liked the results produced by Rebout and Fatality. The main thing is that you no longer need any pre-proces...

Re: Games like Daggerfall?

3. Birthright:Gorgons Alliance - A really old game, not sure if you can still find it anymore. Can only run on Dosbox Pretty sure Birthright has a Windows version too, and AFAIK it heavily leans towards grand strategy with some role-playing elements. There's a couple of demo versions, one for DOS a...

Re: Games like Daggerfall?

It is indeed rather weird that RPGs similar to Daggerfall seem to be extremely hard to come by. Undoubtedly of interest, if only historical, should be Legends of Valour , which is in fact one of the titles that is known to have inspired Arena (and if it weren't known you'd immediately spot the simil...

Re: The Quest...Daggerfall like game...any of you guys tried this one?

Hmm, a while ago I too was searching for games like Daggerfall and somewhere this game was suggested, for whichever reason. But it really is a classic dungeon crawler with grid-based movement, which isn't too close to Daggerfall . The same developers previously made one or several RPGs for handhelds...

Re: AI Upscaled Textures

I plan to upscale the city comonners using AI to 4x scale. Its 528 files, so much less than the MOBs. Could you please generate the alpha masks? I never used this techique, not sure how to apply them fast to get the resulting images.. Maybe you'd be able to try out my method? I believe you have ESR...

Re: AI Upscaled Textures

Best results on this tab was with manga, but no prefilter, but yours is better, more sharp and defined I ran a test with the same image (with the one-pass xBRZ preprocessing as described above) with Cartoon Painted (80k) and MyManga109 (250k) models (each lightly interpolated with basic ESRGAN at a...

Re: High resolution paperdoll

Honestly, this will be better to leave for a AI upscaling. It produces a great results and will save hours upon hours of work. Than those AI results can be adjusted by the artist. That results will be 110% I ran a little test with the official Bethesda paperdoll screenshot (showing an impossible we...

Re: AI Upscaled Textures

What program are you using to do the Kuwahara-Nagao filter? I don't recall seeing it in Gimp 2.10. I use mtPaint for both the KN blur and converting images to indexed palettes. Just don't forget to select no dithering and to set the colour space to RGB in the options of the convert to indexed menu....
