Forum rules
The Projects forums are only for projects. If you are asking questions about a project, either find that project's thread, or start a thread in the General section instead.

Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

Please read the full rules for more details.

Hexen Facelift NEW VERSION 17.2.22

Post by Marcelus »

Hi all,
This is upscaling project with manual editing.
Sprites are upscaled 2x except weapons. Weapons are upscaled 4x.
Some sprites are complete new because some original sprites are very tiny and not look good after upscaling.
Textures are upscaled , fixed and after fix are dithered.

Seamless textures
Smooth edges on sprites (but little blurry)
NO aggressive upscaling
NO washed colors or too much distort shapes
Some manual changes for better feeling because upscaling is details killer.


This is not HD mod and goal for this project is keep original feeling with less visible pixels. Nothing more
I do it for myself without any profit and everything is free for all.

Using tools
Waifu for textures upscaling
DCCIx2 from g_mic plugin for sprites upscaling
Gimp
Zoner Photo Studio
Slade

All feedbacks are welcome


Download latest version 17.2.22

For best result please turn off textures filtering and set sprites clipping "always" in GzDoom

Can you make your mod with support for widescreen monitors?
For example, like here:
