Re: Mage's Initiation Kickstarter

Sorry, didn't mean to have it come off quite so strongly lol. I kind of just meant that some people dislike Steam and, like you, prefer GOG. Not necessarily that you yourself "dislike" Steam.

Re: Mage's Initiation Kickstarter

I wasn't referencing it specifically, no. But some people in general just dislike Steam and prefer GOG, like Tawm. That's the only reason I said it. But yeah, we did have that whole thread about just those differences...

Re: Mage's Initiation Kickstarter

Mage's Initiation now has a Coming Soon page on GOG. Go now and wishlist it if you're one of those anti-Steam/anti-DRM fellows. :)

Re: What are you playing now?

Good man. :) Breath of the Wild is amazing. But while it's the most impressive Zelda game I've played in a long time, my favourite is still Twilight Princess. I do miss the classical linear dungeon approach. But I love BOTW.

Perhaps a possible new avatar, Collector? (QFG4 screens now on my Google Drive collection)

Re: AI Neural Network image upscaling filters

I took most of yesterday and wrote a script that extracts background resources from a Sierra game, converts to PNG, and upscales with ESRGAN. I'm doing all the Sierra games and uploading them to a Google Drive folder. I'll upload more as time goes on: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1r6wxN7xQ...

Re: AI Neural Network image upscaling filters

Someone in the thread mentioned it took him 8 seconds to render an image with his new RTX video card. Give that 10 years (if that) and we'll have a silky smooth 60fps framerate out of that.

Re: AI Neural Network image upscaling filters

On the King's Quest 6 CD-ROM there were a collection of hi-res versions of backgrounds from the game in 512x365 resolution (game resolution is 320x200). Using this upscaling method I converted one to 2048x1460 and it looks phenomenal!!! Upscaled w/ESRGAN (click to download at full res!): https://i.i...

AI Neural Network image upscaling filters

So this has been making the rounds in retro video game circles. It's been used with great effect for Doom sprite and texture upscaling and the Duke3D community has also been experimenting with it. I found a thread that featured upscaled backgrounds from Monkey Island 2 and the results are quite incr...
