These past few weeks have been really interesting as we’ve seen some truly amazing AI-enhanced texture packs for older games. Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy 8, Final Fantasy 9, Half-Life, Max Payne, Morrowind and Doom are just a few of the games that got new high-quality textures that were produced via AI Neural Networks and today, modder ‘Shiryu’ released a new AI-enhanced Texture Pack for Resident Evil HD Remaster.
According to the modder, this Texture Pack, which is more than 8GB in size, upgrades/improves more than 1600 textures and took almost a month in order to be finished. Do note though that the rooms that Capcom redid as 3D rendered rooms have not been modified. This pack covers the entire game, meaning that you can install it and enjoy the improved textures from start to finish.
In order to showcase some of the visual improvements, Shiryu released some comparison screenshots that you can find below. We also strongly suggest opening them in new tabs so you can immediately notice the enhancements that this pack brings to the table.
As said before, I find these AI-enhanced texture packs to be incredible as they significantly improve the visuals of older games. Not only that, but contrary to other texture packs, they manage to retain the visual style and atmosphere of all these games, and that’s a big plus.
Here is hoping that modders will be able to release AI-enhanced HD Texture Packs for both Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3.
