[FF9 PC] WIP worldmap retexture (download 0.1)
« on: 2019-08-14 15:24:38 »


Hi all,

I'm currently working on a wordmap retexture, based on ESRGAN (AI Upscaling) and manual. I wanted to show my advancement.

Download Link (0.1)

Just put the content (p0data3.bin) in \FINAL FANTASY IX\streamingAssets\ (save the original p0data3.bin first)

I'm using various upscaling models for ESRGAN (manga109, zePilot's FF9 model, waifu2x...)

Thanks Aavock : )

I just found the page I've been seeking for a while: a database of most ESRGAN models available.
https://upscale.wiki/wiki/Model_Database

I've scripted ESRGAN so it to output the result of every model:



Now I need to choose and import the best of each, and mix them together manually

ZePilot told me he wants to add it, but you can already download it and play with it. Be aware that I only tested the first CD, so it will probably evolve a bit.

Yeah, I agree with the fact that it should be included so there's just 1 unique mod to apply to improve all backgrounds in the game ... again, AWESOME work!

Moguri has its own texture folder, located by default in C:\Program Files\Moguri Mod\StreamingAssets\
The worldmap texture file is only p0data3.bin, so go in C:\Program Files\Moguri Mod\StreamingAssets\, backup p0data3.bin, and replace with mine. It does not damage anything.

I download the file and get an error stating "The archive is either in unknown format or damaged". I'm using winrar to try and open it.

Is it still a work in progress? Maybe I should wait until it's complete to try it anyway.

What version of winrar do you use? I compressed with 5.61 and I just tried downloading and decompressing, it works. Could you try again?

Wow, This is awesome, I think is one of those few things moguri mod lacks and it will fit it perfectly.
Thanks for all the job! FF9 is gonna be even more enjoyable :) good thing i stopped to play 3 mounths ago my 2cond run of the game so i can enjoy whole game with these textures.

Is there anyway you could fix it to avoid the web-like pattern that ESRGAN adds to the grass?
