Should people also be using your files with project eden? does it fix many of the same issues?

I'd say so. It should fix a lot of issues with Eden as well as make more textures work/upscale. Of course, when my next update comes along I'll also disable any hashes that causes problems that can't be fixed by me. Those will have to be dealt with if/when a new hashing method comes along for Tonberry.

I'd like to try. Have to relearn it again, though. Had to reinstall Windows since my last time trying it. Want to experiment with both Project Eden as a template and yours.

I've tested the links and it all checks out. Not sure why it isn't working for you... It's a big file and might say "whoops", but you should still be able to download it. And thank you. :)

Does anyone know how to put these together? I like to keep an album of the static backgrounds and these look great but they're not in a format that I can save to a photo album. I've got the ones ripped from FFDream but they're LQ, look like garbage and I've noticed from my most recent playthrough that they're even missing some of the backgrounds from the game

The contents in this mod can't be pieced back together for viewing outside the game. At least, I don't think so. Could be wrong. You can extract the field files from your game and use PuPu to get the backgrounds in layers. Those can be put back together and upscaled the same way I did mine. Not to mention you can also get fields that aren't used in the game this way. Which is always neat to see.

Quick question about the mod. First of all, great job on it, everything looks great and I can't wait to start my playthrough with it! I'm just having a little issue when it comes to the collisions file for it, am I supposed to just place this in the hashmap folder because when I do the SquareSoft text gets all glitched out and cut off when I open the game, as well as some text not even being there, such as the buttons screen when you first start up the game and when you goto quit the game, there's just no options. It's just a black empty box with two more empty boxes inside. I'm sure I'm screwing up with where I'm placing the collisions since I tested everything out and that's what causes the text to disappear in these situations.

This is actually how the game behaves if you don't disable the steam overlay.  Looks like you need to disable that, and then make sure hash2map and collisions are in FINAL FANTASY VIII/tonberry/  and NOT in tonberry/hashmap/

Chances are that isn't caused by the mod itself. I would test the game without any mods first just to make sure it isn't the game. Because things like that can happen when something in the game files gets corrupted or missing and needs validation from Steam.

love your mod, but i decided to increase color saturation... since you gave us .png files... it's easy enough...

as you can see only took me about 20-25 minutes to add color to 2688 .PNG files :)
i used HUE -3, SATURATION 22, AND GAVE IT THE SLIGHTEST BIT OF NOISE REDUCTION...

BUT TRY AROUND 15% COLOR SATURATION ... ENJOY :)

SINCE YOU ARE MODDING FILES YOU ALREADY HAVE NO NEED TO RE-DOWNLOAD 1.53 GB SO I HAVEN'T BOTHERED TO UPLOAD MY RESULT AS A MOD... it's all the OP's work + small tweak that goes a long way :)
PS: RECOMMEND BACKING UP YOUR TEXTURES FOLDER...
