your work of art is the closest thing we have on FF IX remaster, and thank you very much for restoring my childhood
but what if i tell you there are archives of from the former FF IX development team spread on the internet.
please check https://www.neogaf.com/threads/the-lost-art-of-final-fantasy-ix-mama-robotnik-research-thread.551612/
it's not complete but combined with your works it should be complements each other

Unfortunately, there are at least 3 good reasons no modder is getting close to these artworks, while being aware of them.
1) they're very much copyrighted, they are on the artist's portfolio, and taking material from other sources (like other FF games or original artwork) is pretty much forbidden
2) it's very mych incomplete (there are 816 background images in the game, about 28 here), and does not have the final light applied. This would compromise the visual unity
3) Most fields also have animation frames, surimposed stuff etc. A static image is not enough.

Hello!

I'm so sorry if this is not the proper thread, and for the noob question. FF9 is my favorite game from childhood, and I replay it once every few years. I just discovered this modding, "re-mastering" effort and have not been so excited for something in a long time. As someone who doesn't know much about this stuff: how do I go from not having the game, to installing and modding and playing through with these re-done beautiful backgrounds?

I have a MacBook Pro, so I'm not sure if that affects my ability to be able to download the game. If so, and if the rest of the process is simple enough for a bozo like me to go through, I would be willing to go out and buy a PC just for this purpose.

Would love any insight or suggestions you may have.

Hope everyone is staying safe and sane out there in these strange and challenging times.

Warm regards,

-Justin

Hi, you can install a double boot with Windows using integrated software bootcamp. Google is your friend for that.
