Hello.
I've used waifu to upscale the game background x4
I used the waifu cpu version with no extra filtrering so some scene (inside shina building for exemple) will not be as good looking as other ones (i'll regenerate a complete pack with extra filtrering once the bugs will be found ^^).
I think the pack will have bug on some screen because i've automatised 100% of the works (so if we want to re-done the pack with extra filtrering it will be done easily)
The beta is here to test the pack and found bugs, missing filtering ....

So if you want to betatest,  here's the link:
http://www.multiup.org/fr/mirror/cc44b1fca2b2ab74be5f7f31c1be7357/field.waifu.beta1.7z


exemple (inside shinra building, the rendering is far better in exteriors):
Unfiltered waifu 4x (the one in the pack):

yarLson's:

Omzy's:


futur pack (need to filter only some screen with this):
N1 filtered waifu 4x + some gimp filter:


Please report any bug ^^

Here's the multiup mirrors:

http://www.fufox.net/dl/55c9a421777e52

i'm not goin to reup 3go just for one more miror dl.free.fr and 1fichier.com are realy easy to use and you don't need any premium account to use them

Most of these aren't very good, too many adds and some aren't even available in the US apparently. I agree with Kaldarasha about using Mega and Google. Those that have trouble with one have success with the other.

Otherwise these fields look interesting, looking forward to checking them out later.

No problems, as the pack is in beta stage, if you can list the field with special cases sa i can test them to be sure they're not bugguy ^^
I'll do the upload one a more common mirror for the beta2, but as i saif the dl.free.fr mirror is 100% free, no inscription, no intrusive adds., and most of the mirror i've posted can be used with the free "jdownloader" program so you don't even have to open le link in browser to donwload ^^

Looking on the waifu2x github page toward the bottom it gives you the syntax for training your own model.  Have considered doing it this way instead of using the default style.  Have you tried this at all yet?

I've not because to train the model you need HD and LD files from the same exact model and there is not realy HD version of official FF7 backgrounds

perhaps not but there are hand made high resolution renders made by the dedicated Team AVALANCE on this forum.  Perhaps feeding all of those images in at their high resolution would give it enough data to come up with a good profile

I could try but the fact is a pseudo-neural resize system need the exact same picture HQ and LQ to learn how to re-create the missing blocs (as the texture from avalanche are 100% new i don't think it'll works).
I've read a lot about this because it's like the 'hooly graal" of all resize and is discuted in specialised video forum for about 15 years ^^.
I can't do it right now because the beta pack as lots of small missing pixels due to unacurate crops and some special cases need to be fixed (like the chorace fields) so i need to fix the pack before doing extra resize and filtering (if you can found the fields you had to fix (and the sp├ęcial cases witch are not in omzy's script) with your script so i can check mine ^^)

thanks for the suggestion anyway

Hello.
I just registered to write in this topic. The last pic that says you used N1 filtered waifu 4x + some gimp filter looks really good. I'am just wondering will all backgrounds get that treatment? And if so how long will it take before this is done? Also, is it possible to see some more pictures from that filtering? It looks really good can't wait to play it like that with reshade and maybe a high resolution, if that would do any good. Good luck!

>All background won't get this treatment, on some background waifu is better on other waifu + gimp is better, i'll need to use both.
>It will take some time because i need to correct the beta bugs before.
>Some more picture will be posted once the bug will be corrected and once i'll have generater the whole pack again (2 weeks minimun i think)

Ok, thank you. I'am looking forward to this. Pherhaps it can look even better with reshades sharpening effect. I wonder if we one day will have filters good enough to make old pre-renders look as good as it would in 1080. Probably not... :(

That's probably impossible, since even the best filtering algorhythm will never be able to bring back detail that simply isn't there due to the low resolution the images were rendered in. There is a reason after all that the 'Team Avalanche' Project is rebuilding all those scenes in 3D to re-render them. ;)

I thought they gave up when the remake were announced? Its good if they havent. Altough it feels lile that project can take years before getting finnished. If i won the lottery i would pay them to finnish it now.

I don't think they've given up, progress is just kind of slow paced at the moment. Which I completely understand, I would be fatigued too if I was a modder and I hear that the game I've been modding for years, is finally getting an official remake.

But I think at this point most people have realized that Square Enix won't be making the exact remake we're all hoping for, so mods for the original game will remain relevant after all.

Yeah Square is remaking it. But I also want a hd version of the original and that seems like Square never will do so I trust Avalanche will finnish it, sometime :)

Hey guys im unclear is this the better version of the waifu in this topic?

http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=16444.0

The last pic loks awesome but i read that the 1. is the ones quality actualy packed that we are dling. So is the pack here better thatn the original waifu post ones or not? Just so i know, the originals are great, but im getting an error message saying your graphics driver does not support NPOT textures, check applog... If this is better than that one id replace them and see if they are wo that error message.

Yes, this one http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=16444.0 is better, Satsuki said he said he went through and fixed bugs and re-did some scenes with Waifu CPu instead of GPU and made areas like Cosmo Canyon look better.

Ok guys, I decided to lock this topic since this is the older of the two releases.  Updated release can be found in this thread http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=16444.0
