This is for mod creators.
With Hades Workshop, open your mod. In "Environment" > "Fields", for each field > "edit script", and each field has its functions, the first one is always Main_init, and second one is often Main_reinit (for when you get out of battle)
Some field names appear several times, so I indicated the number if that's the case.



BUGS OF THE PC version
The two chests appearing in front of objects is due to the Steam version having slightly shifted chests compared to PSX

Spoiler: Fixed in the latest version • show


Gulug/Well 1
In Main_Init and Main_Reinit, at the start of the function:
    SetTilePositionEx( 23, 0, 0, 4000 )





In Gargan Roo/Passage 1
Main_Init and Main_Reinit
Change:
    SetTilePositionEx( 2, 0, 0, 150 )
To:
    SetTilePositionEx( 2, 0, 0, 70 )




In Dali/Production Area 2
In Main_Init and Main_Reinit, at the start of the function:
    SetTilePositionEx( 27, 0, 0, -100 )





BUGS OF THE PSX version
These two bugs were present in the PSX version and were likely an oversight from the developers




Crystal World 1
In Main_Init and Main_Reinit, at the start of the function:
    SetTilePositionEx( 8, 0, 0, 3000 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 10, 0, 0, -600 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 11, 0, 0, -600 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 12, 0, 0, 2000 )


This fix will need a bit shortening of the top bit of the path, because it makes the path appear in front of the giant boulder. It also makes the magic glow on the right appear on top of the boulder as well.





in field Palace/Dungeon 2
in Main_init (beginning of the function):
    SetTilePositionEx( 13, 0, 0, 500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 18, 0, 0, 500 )


after "    case 9530:" and after "    case 9815:"
        SetTilePositionEx( 2, 0, 0, -500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 3, 0, 0, -500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 4, 0, 0, -500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 5, 0, 0, -500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 6, 0, 0, -500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 7, 0, 0, -500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 8, 0, 0, -500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 9, 0, 0, -500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 13, 0, 0, -500 )



In Function Zidane_13
replace:
    ShowTile( 2, 0 )
    SetObjectLogicalSize( 14, 20, 30 )
    InitWalk(  )
    Walk( -1983, 2306 )
    InitWalk(  )

with:
    ShowTile( 2, 0 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 3, 0, 0, -500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 4, 0, 0, -500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 5, 0, 0, -500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 6, 0, 0, -500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 7, 0, 0, -500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 8, 0, 0, -500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 9, 0, 0, -500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 13, 0, 0, -500 )
    SetObjectLogicalSize( 14, 20, 30 )
    InitWalk(  )
    Walk( -1983, 2306 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 3, 0, 0, 500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 4, 0, 0, 500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 5, 0, 0, 500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 6, 0, 0, 500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 7, 0, 0, 500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 8, 0, 0, 500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 9, 0, 0, 500 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 13, 0, 0, 500 )
    InitWalk(  )


In each main character _16:
add before "    WaitTurn(  )"
    SetTilePositionEx( 2, 0, 0, 200 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 3, 0, 0, 200 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 4, 0, 0, 200 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 5, 0, 0, 200 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 6, 0, 0, 200 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 7, 0, 0, 200 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 8, 0, 0, 200 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 9, 0, 0, 200 )
    SetTilePositionEx( 13, 0, 0, 200 )



In Main_Loop near the end, after "ShowTile( 9, 1 )", i added:
        SetTilePositionEx( 2, 0, 0, 500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 3, 0, 0, 500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 4, 0, 0, 500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 5, 0, 0, 500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 6, 0, 0, 500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 7, 0, 0, 500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 8, 0, 0, 500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 9, 0, 0, 500 )
        SetTilePositionEx( 13, 0, 0, 500 )


This will re-arrange depth of doors so that no bit gets in front of characters and that they don't appear in front of the texture, while putting the closed doors layers in front of the open one.

I think it's better to make another thread for the discussion I'm having with @Lykon (Steam chat is not permanent, main thread is full of other discussions and other people might want to contribute)

There are 2 video types:
-MBG, used as background to 3d objects
-FMV, simple videos

MASTER PLAN
1) test upscaled 60fps in the game (check for speed in the game, vanilla and Memoria)
2a) try to get source videos
2b) or use downscaled images to 320x224 nearest
3) If there's artifact like dithering, there's an ESRGAN model to undither.
4) Upscaling possibilities: srmd-ncnn-vulkan / ESRGAN / other?
5) if possible, blend the background in the video and color correct
6) Use DAIN to add frame interpolation
7) TEST



OBSERVATIONS
-MBGs above 15fps make 3D models glitch, but FMVs look fine. It might be fixable if we find the right code. Lykon found a relevant part in HW in CIL Code > Raw Code > MBG
-vids are tretched by the game, so we can keep original PSX x4 resolution (320x224 x4 = 1280x896) instead of 1280x960 in the steam version
-videos raised to 60fps look weird (too much guessing by DAIN, and contrasts too much with the original game)

THE UPDATE HAS NOW GONE LIVE OFFICIALLY

Spoiler: outdated • show
NEW 2020-05-23 - MOGURI 8 BETA V5 changelog -> Make a shortcut of the file to your drive then go into your drive, find the shortcut there and click "make a copy"

I N S T A L L _ G U I D E

IF YOU DON'T HAVE MOGURI INSTALLED
1) Extract and replace the files in the .zip to SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY IX\

IF YOU HAVE MOGURI INSTALLED (not required!)
1) If you installed it before 2020-04-2, uninstall and re-install Moguri again (SquareEnix pushed a Steam update that temporarily broke the game and Moguri)
2) Extract the content of StreamingAssets in \Program Files (x86)\Moguri Mod\StreamingAssets\
3) Extract \x64\FF9_Data\resources.assets & \x64\FF9_Data\sharedassets2.assets to SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY IX\x64\FF9_Data\
   but DON'T replace Assembly-CSharp.dll

To check you have the right version, here's how the first frame should look


Spoiler: UNINSTALLING • show

1) In steam, right click the game, go to "properties...", go to the LOCAL FILES tab, click VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME FILES. This will re-download the original files, but your saves are still intact.

Spoiler: CONTENT OF FILES • show

p0data2.bin - Battle backgrounds
p0data3.bin - Worldmap textures
p0data4.bin - NPC, monsters and background items
p0data11.bin to p0data19.bin - Main backgrounds
resources.assets & sharedassets2.assets - UI stuff (maps, title screen...)
Assembly-CSharp.dll - The patched file that allows for the augmented resolution of backgrounds. (The one here and the one in moguri are different)

Note: If you have uninstalled Moguri and/or Memoria and you have names like ZidaneZidane, ViviVivi, you can salvage your save with this tool: http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=11494.0
Note: Alternate Fantasy is not currently supported.
