Here's my V5 release of SYW Textures pack
The main new feature is that the full vanilla animations of fields as been restored in HD (AI upscaling).
Those animations have never been done before in any mod for FF7.
(It could have been done thanks to FFNx 1.8.0 and aeris software from L@ZaR0)
This v5 is a corrected / updated version of my v4 (not lots of big corrections but lots of small improvements).
Aavock helps also mainly by correcting or re-drawing most of the writings.
I used mostly esrgan (5 models mixed by hand for each fields) with some prefilter for some fields and world map.
I used mostly gigapixel for battles.
The main goal of this pack is to get as much details as possible without oversharping nor overcleaning the files.
I wanted to get the rendering as natural and constant in quality as possible across the whole game.
The game have been done countless time for bug hunting and optimisations, no bug reported so far.
With this pack you'll have :
-Upscaled Fields with full animations (+ char texture for 3D elements like the flipper in the bar for exemple)
-Upscaled Battle background (+ textures for some ennemis)
-Upscaled World map (+fx)
-HD from scratch magics and FX by Kela51 (+lots of fix by myself)
-Upscaled minigames based on english version of my old waifu version (translation by Grimmy)
-Upscaled movies (done from scratch from psx again)
ATM only iro's version and manual install but i plan to do a full install for vanilla steam version.
To use thoses iro's without issues you need to update the FFNx driver provided with 7h with 1.8.0 or more and use "the enable_animated_textures = true" (in the FFNx.toml config file)
If you don't you won't have field's advanced animations and with some fields it can hide you stuff.
You can download FFNx here : https://github.com/julianxhokaxhiu/FFNx ... /tag/1.8.1 (use the 1998 with 7h)
You'll find instructions here : https://github.com/julianxhokaxhiu/FFNx ... To_Install look at "7thHeaven 2.2.3+"
Download SYWV5 here : https://mega.nz/folder/nIBhCAwa#oilVZO8_jL_OTWoql6OFJA
In this mega folder you'll also found an archive file : SYW.iro.Extractor.7z
If you put any SYWV5 iro's file in the same folder than this extracted archive and double click on the .bat file, it'll auto extract and sort the dds mod files, ready to use if you want to do a manual installation without 7h.
ingame previews picture
v5 Vs v6 : http://wowsatsuki.free.fr/comparo.2.mkv
some previews Vs remako (i use the fonts and menus from Aavock for both but none use it ATM ^^)
(Those show you the advanced fields animation in the SYW part, look at the lights effect for exemple)
(The loading's speed difference is not a bug, remako's slower because it's using png, i'm using dds)
My future plan for this pack are :
-(WIP, done waiting for Aavock menu translation before doing a release) Do a standalone installer for vanilla steam edition (easy modding for all users)
-(WIP) Translate to english the great Aavock's menu and fonts (the one you seen in comparison videos - french only ATM)
-(To do)Translate to english the great Aavock's minigames (french only and not released ATM) because the minigames are mostly from my v2 and it would be great to update them ^^)
