Somewhat on topic:

I'm not positive, but isn't there some kind of tool in Photoshop that keeps pictures looking very true to the original when resized larger?

xD if i'd made it myself i'd have added the extra bits you cant see in that pic that are present in the original one. theres a lot of stuff cut out of the top and bottom because of widescreen nowadays. that's why i was asking if adding it in is an option, since there isn't as much data as the original one, but it looks like it should encompass the entire 3D field.

Hmm, well. guess we look into that photoshop option to see if it's possible?

Seems there is a "Bicubic smoother" that can be used in Photoshop CS and above.

Anyone have Photoshop to test this with?

I see the blur, but it is WAY better then the old version, I think we are getting somewhere with this, Thanks a lot Myrt6re.

Maybe there are other settings to make it look better, I'm not familiar with Photoshop, Nor do i have it haha.. Else i'd poke around

Without blur

Awesome job, Guess that answers my previous statement.

How long did it take to resize those? Maybe i can borrow my friends PC with photoshop, Or use GIMP to help you out.

All is done in two seconds with a script. But we must have all backgrounds in a folder.


I hate bicubic

I figured the others were in bicubic haha. Guess not, Though i think the blur is to add an AA effect to the image. Could be wrong.

How did you extract the backgrounds? I extracted the files from the .lpg, but i don't know how to load them up

EDIT: The backgrounds default is 512 X 512? but the default of FF7 is 640 X 480 isn't it?

Edit2: Typo fix  :-P

 :-o open the backgrounds is very very VERY complicated! This is not a simple image! Qhimm wiki

FF7 -> 640*480

Not to mention the info in the wiki is an oversimplification that:

1. Is missing a lot of little (and some big) things.
2. Won't produce 100% correct results anywhere.
3. Will fail spectacularly with some files :-P

hopefully aali will allow the backgrounds to be auto saved as separate png/bmp files?

I was just about to ask if you were still working on your driver, But i can see you still are  :-D

Although, would it be better to make image sizes 1280 * 960? since thats the common (i think) size for playin FF7 at now. Or maybe 2048 * 2048? or are there technical limitations on that?
