[FF8PC-Steam] BattleFieldPack - RECUT EDGES + COLOR BOOST - Based On Mcindus's...
(sorry i should've mentioned FatedCourage too for "combined efforts of myself and FatedCourage, we bring you the NEW BattleFieldPack v2.0"
UPDATE: all art was either originally created by MCINDUS and Upscaled by Fated Courage aside from Zeeber's Training Center, and Shunsq's Comm Tower battlefields which were made by them... Thanks again...

"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... yet...
new version coming soon hopefully fixing up the BLACK FLOORS / SKIES etc... hopefully

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 :)

Winhill Before ...

Winhill After
https://nofile.io/f/vOFrp0YKxep/2018-06-11+12_22_36-FINAL+FANTASY+VIII.jpg

using:
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...

Laguna area actually looks Green like plants should be :P
