Ive used this before. The results are better than just waifu alone. But I can get pretty much identical results using waifu and making edits such as using the AA, sharpen, and other tools in GIMP. The pricing for it isnt worth the output if you know how to use an image manipulation program.
GIMP's sharpen tool (and Photoshop's, and basically any other sharpen tool) has a tendency to create haloing and ringing on edges. Nothing I've seen from this does any such thing. But, what's more, this seems like it might be far quicker and easier than manually tweaking each field in photo editing software after scaling.

If nothing else, it's better than a lot of the smudgy scales that are floating around.

This is really, truly impressive. I'm tempted to invest some money in one of their plans for further experimentation; I think this has the potential for better upscaled backgrounds than we've ever seen before. No substitute for the work being done on redoing backgrounds from the ground up with fresh scenes and renders, but I think this could definitely be the best stopgap until that is finished.

Edit: Their pricing is wonky, though. A monthly plan is such a ridiculously better price, I can't fathom why someone would pay their much higher per-image pricing unless they need very few images processed over an extended period of time.

Instead of calling me and pretty much everyone else here a lying flaker in the PM's.
This is not the first I've heard of him harassing people in PMs. I am issuing ONE warning for this. If I hear about it again, Incinerator, you're out of here. ~Covarr

FF7 Tools / Re: [PC] Trainer and Debug Tool - Ochu (3.4)

Game trainers are notorious for false positives in antivirus software because they edit memory. Heck, even Cheat Engine sometimes gets flagged, and it's really well known software that should be getting a pass from AV manufacturers by now.

You'll notice it gets flagged with some sort of "GEN." or "Generic" name by AVG. This means it was caught by what is called "heuristic" detection. In other words, rather than recognizing a specific virus, trojan, or other malware, it sees that it behaves similarly to a virus, so it assumes it must be one. This is simply not the case, but in the modern antivirus world there's really no way to prevent these false positives.

We don't have a strict rule regarding what language you use, but we generally prefer English, because the site staff all speaks English and it's quite difficult to adequately moderate things we don't understand. I've seen some people post dual-language posts with the content in both English and another language; I think that's a good compromise.

FF7's frame limiter is pretty much completely broken. As I recall, DLPB is working on a new one that will show up in the next version of Reunion.

Graphical Modding / Re: model problem

We will not help with models ripped from other FF games.

Oh man, I can only imagine how much of a pain it must be to get backgrounds that are already rendered at the wrong angles and with the wrong proportions in places to line up properly with the game's walkmeshes. Good work.

I do have to ask, though, did you get the original artist's permission to distribute modified versions of his work?

I think I've missed some posts here
An unfortunate side-effect of our recent anti-spam measures, which require all new members' first five posts to be approved by a moderator. This can cause posts to be missed quite easily in high-traffic threads, and this is probably the highest-traffic thread on the site.

This mod contains copyrighted models ripped from other Square Enix games, and we therefore do not support it on this site.

Neither. You should rip the game yourself. We do not support pirated games here.

They talk about being huge fans and aiming for the best quality. And they are also responsible for the badly-scaled assets and rendering issues that plague the PC versions of FFV and FFVI.

There is a bit of a disconnect here between what they have said and what they delivered.

Your enthusiasm is definitely welcomed, perico1986, but please read the forum rules before further posts.

Zara9, as I've told you before, this community is made up of volunteers working in their free time. You need to accept that people will work at their own schedule. Begging won't speed them up.

is there any chance to implement a way to zoom in game and to turn camera around?
Not with pre-rendered backgrounds there isn't. The game would pretty much need redone in a new engine for this to be possible.

The easiest emulation choice is probably Retroarch, a multi-system emulator, which should be available in Ubuntu Software Center. As a general rule, if software is available there, that's where you'll wanna get it, because:

  • Software in the Ubuntu Software Center's default repositories has been tested with your version of Ubuntu.
  • It will automatically install any required dependencies.
  • It's far easier to keep your software updated.

It's worth noting that Ubuntu Software Center is pretty much just a frontend for all the apt- commands you might run from a bash shell. While I highly recommend becoming comfortable with terminal commands, there isn't much advantage for beginners to installing apps that way over using Ubuntu Software Center.

Why are you trying to uninstall your audio driver?

Okay, so let me get this straight:

1. You are both working from an original, already-existing game and its original, already-existing codebase.
2. I only see a single line of code in common between what Incinerator posted and what's visible in resinate's twitch stream.
3. From what I can tell, this is the only way to achieve UI scaling that works correctly while dealing with aforementioned already-existing codebase.
4. Any coder to successfully accomplish the same thing without seeing this stream would still end up with the same code.

It doesn't seem reasonable to me to claim code theft when there's literally no other way to do it within the framework provided by the game's existing code.

THAT BEING SAID, Incinerator, you really should include a readme with your download, that includes things like installation instructions and changelog and, yes, credits. While I don't think this constitutes code theft by any reasonable definition, a single line in a readme that says "thanks to resinate for helping to find how to do this" would be the decent thing to do, since it is overwhelmingly clear that he DID help you find it.

But seriously, you're both being extraordinarily petty. Stop it.

Yes, let the mods deal. I'm a little confused by the Twitch video; resinate, you are saying you designed this code, yes?

Incinerator, did you design this yourself, or did you copy code that someone else made and fail to credit them?

ploppo, everyone who has responded to you has been around this site for years. We've seen firsthand what works and what doesn't. Your methods DO NOT WORK for getting help and support, no matter how many times you say we're wrong, the fact is we know what we're talking about and you don't.

When you reply to yourself repeatedly in the span of just a few hours, that's not people ignoring you, that's you being impatient.
