[FF8PC-Steam] BattleFieldPack - RECUT EDGES + COLOR BOOST - Based On Mcindus's...

"Final Fantasy VIII\textures\ba"

just a tweak to the battlefield mod pack by Mcindus ...
Color Saturation Adjustments + Re-cut Edges on all the pixelated overlayed layers... mountains / buildings etc...
figured it was smarter to keep this separate since it might have it's own bugs...

please let me know of any black backgrounds in-game, i've tested most but not all areas...

So far i've only found 4 battle stages with missing FLOORS out of about 60 ish i think the total is...
where the texture hasn't loaded for some reason...

NORG Battle... Floor was black... Should be fixed in v2 i think

Ulti's Castle - Prison Stage - RED GIANT's ROOM -  Floor was black ...might be fixed, can't remember...

Elvoret BOSS Battle - Dollet Tower - Floor Black / Sky ... Should be fixed in v2 i think

Lunatic Pandora - random mob battles - also black floor...
Should be fixed in v2 i think

NOW REGARDING GETTING FIELD TEXTURES TO MATCH UP :)

https://nofile.io/f/VjskqEA3P7u/2018-06-11+13_22_52-ImBatch+5.9.1+%5BFree+for+non-commercial+use%5D.jpg

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...
