I think the tree here needs a fix too.

This tree is quite jaggy, dark and looks unnatural. I think it could be fixed at least a bit: https://i.imgur.com/W1HEW2U.png

Thanks for the feedback, I'll soften dali's skies with touches of waifu2x renders.

Note that the endgame should generally be less janky, as my techniques progressively got more efficient. I'm planning to do another pass on the beginning of the game.

Note that working a screenshot of a scrolling sky in photoshop won't accurately display what it'll look like, I'm forced to use 1 bit transparency and that creates a staircase effect between them. Same problem in Clayra. But yeah, this tree needs to be reworked to look more natural.

Hey! I come from Reddit and I want to help betatest!

I just downloaded the four zips and I'm going to overwrite my files now.

So far I just saw the comparisons and I love how crispy everything looks! Amazing job!!



So far I can tell that the NPC V2 zip has a typo in the compressed folder, so it won't replace the intended file. I mention this because someone less attentive might not catch that. :P

Replacing the original Assembly-CSharp.dll with yours disables all the changes from memoria.ini. Font is reverted to something else I don't want, Intro logos aren't skipped anymore, fps aren't changed...

Right, okay... I just had to do a little bit more of reading:

Assembly-CSharp.dll is the file that, modified, allows for HD backgrounds.
If you already have Moguri installed, you can ignore Assembly-CSharp.dll and replace the "p0data" files in the Moguri install folder.

I replaced the game's p0data files, not the ones from Moguri, so nothing was being applied when Moguri was enabled. :P

@snouz, you really have to do a FAQ / Install guide in the OP for people like me. >.<

I just posted another file with UI stuff, most notably the start menu and world/mist maps.

I invite everyone to test it too and give me feedback.

I found some baked people but they are very small and I am not sure if you can fix it.

The grass in marches has odd black border. Can you do something with it?

Hi, been lurking for a long time and just want to express my gratitude for keeping the ball rolling on this modding project. :D

Spent the better part of the evening experimenting with various setups, vanilla, original Moguri, standalone Memoria, what font I'd like, which battle UI, etc... For now, I'll probably just stick to vanilla Steam + Snouz's files. I'm well overdue for another FF9 playthrough and I'll keep an eye out for bugs in-game and updated files here. Cheers!

Argh, I'll fix that!

Will do. I'll also make one big file, it'll be easier.

These were the scenes I was referring to. Someone with Noesis and Hades workshop knowledge might be able to help. Else, I'll try later.

Couldn't find that texture in any file :( I can just work on the main one and its transparency. I could try to cover it up as much as possible with the high res one, but that's just patching things up...

Eh! You found a typo in the original game!

It seems it is because of Japanese. I just found this thread about it.

Either way, it is called Lindblum in EN version so you can fix it IMHO.

Quite demanding, huh? And in the text in the screenshots you sound more like a (bad) boss telling what to do rather than nicely suggesting improvements.

Anyway, I found something else you might want to retouch, @snouz:



I believe those are leftover iron bars when the gate is actually open.

It's not like that. This is a beta test and there is no room for formalities. I believe Snouz understand that. It is in every beta tests like that. It's better to dedicate the time playing nad looking for bugs than to dedicate it to writing tons of formal text.

A lot of people wanted Snout released a beta version of this mod but most of them are just playing and not paying attention to the possible bugs. It is not very enjoyable to play like beta tester and you should be like for people like me. I do it for everyone. So please keep quite.

There's always room for some courtesy! Even though it's considered a beta test snouz have no obligations whatsoever! It's great that people make bug reports as snouz wanted, but don't come stamping in here making demands.

Thank you once again snouz for your impeccable attention to details!

Please people, don't fight! All the feedback is invaluably useful so far! Some people are more direct and it's ok.

Wow very strange. What is the moment exactly? (game start? before meeting puck?) In my save there's a patron there, and he's drinking an imaginary glass, while the actual glass is floating there too.
I'll quickly install the game on a second computer to see how it is with no mod, because It might be a bug from the original release.
If someone spot another place in the game where this glass texture is used, that could help. If there's none, I could just make the texture transparent.

Anyway, I found something else you might want to retouch, @snouz:
Spoiler: show

Yup, need to fix that one, it's a complicated one.

.
I didn't write that he MUST but that he CAN. It is a big difference. It was not an order and I don't think it was rude. It was my opinion that it would not be against anything if he changed that. I wrote it because one could think that it would not be legit to change it since the purpose of this mod is only enhancing graphics and it shouldn't change anything.

I don't have time and mood  to talk to you, sorry.  This is the last post I wrote to you. BTW Thanks for discouraging people to help with developing this great mod.

Again, I took nothing wrongly.
I'd prefer if this thread was focused on bug reports, no matter the form, as it's very useful to me so far. If you really have to argue, please not here.


Remember there's also a language bias. A little anecdote, I'm working in support, and for the longest time, I would use "please" at the beginning of sentences, like "please do this...", and I only learned later that in English, it's very imperative, while in French, it's not.

Maybe quote my whole post next time instead of paraphrasing. And when did I discourage people from helping out? I literately wrote that it's great that people help out with bug reports.

Enough of that, and back on topic  :)

Something very interesting: the floating glass bug is actually a PSX bug. I just looked in an emulator lets play.

These damn lines in battle backgrounds... I'm trying to get rid of it but it's infructuous so far. I'll check if there something special with this one specifically.

Unfortunately, I have no access to any attack effects. I would love to work on this, but I spoke with Tirlititi yesterday, and even he doesn't know how to edit them.
