Re: How to pause ScummVM?

CTRL+F5 should bring up the ScummVM menu in any supported game, shouldn't it?

Re: Himalaya Studios' Mage's Initiation - Kickstarter

I forgot to post this here. A couple days ago I released the digital soundtrack for Mage's Initiation on my Bandcamp store for $12 CAD ($9 USD). It comes in 80 tracks + 12 bonus tracks (some went unused in the final game!) with over 2hrs and 24mins of music. It also comes with 4 variations of the al...

Re: LucasArts Posters - The better thread

I can send you what I have. Have to wait until I get off work, though.

I'll say this: you certainly don't let the lack of feedback or conversation dampen your motivation or enthusiasm!

Re: Graphic conversion in realtime - Feature request

Neat idea. Similar to how Sierra's hi-res EGA640.DRV dithering driver for SCI11 games worked.

Re: What happened to the portable and ZIP versions for Windows?

When I download a daily build I just choose the install directory (on my portable HDD) and then choose not to add it to the Start Menu. It basically "unzips" and that's it.

Re: ESRGAN: AI Neural Net Upscaling

It takes several seconds to generate an image with a high-end GPU, so real-time filtering in ScummVM or DOSBox is many years away I'm sure ;) User prarts writes in this thread : Really low res pictures (VGA - like DOS SCUMM games) takes less then 1 second, it`s almost instant - that`s way I was thi...

Re: Himalaya Studios' 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: ESRGAN: AI Neural Net Upscaling

This guy trained his own model to upscale Riven screens. He used images of grass, dirt, rocks, trees, water, etc and added dithering similar to Riven's. The result handles the dithering quite nicely (at the slight expense of finer details, he noted), but man is the result gorgeous! Riven Upscale Alb...

Re: ESRGAN: AI Neural Net Upscaling

Indeed. Perhaps we could train a model to transform dithering into smooth shading somehow. there's got to be some kind of algorithm out there that transforms dithering into fine gradients...

Re: ESRGAN: AI Neural Net Upscaling

Thanks! 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/1...

Re: ESRGAN: AI Neural Net Upscaling

I haven't tried testing out training yet, but something like that from what I understand. Though, there are differences in lighting and contrast between the art sources and the game backgrounds. It would probably brighten up everything it touched. I'm going to try to experiment later today. Do we ha...
