Star Wars KOTOR feature

Star Wars KOTOR gets a 3GB ESRGAN AI-enhanced HD Texture Pack, overhauling all of its characters

Now here is something that passed under my radar. Modder ‘Red11BY’ has released an ESRGAN AI-enhanced HD Texture Pack for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. This texture pack overhauls every NPC and armor textures in the game by using the well known AI techniques that surfaced recently.

Going into more details, this AI-enhanced HD Texture Pack for Star Wars KOTOR is 3GB in size and adds HD textures for every NPC, as well as for every male and female armor in the game. By using ESRGAN, the modder has upscaled the original textures to 2048×2048 resolution.

All you have to do in order to install this pack is download it from here and then drop the .tga files into the “Override” folder (if it does not exist create one) in swkotor folder.

In order to showcase the visual improvements, Red11BY released some comparison screenshots between the original and the enhanced textures.

As we can see, there are noticeable improvements and all of the texture retain their original aesthetics. That’s one of the biggest benefits of all ESRGAN AI-enhanced texture packs (the ability to retain the original visual style of what the developers aimed to create).
