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...

Re: ESRGAN: AI Neural Net Upscaling

Here's some examples for CMI that I found in that thread. The only problem with this someone noticed is that the Manga109 dataset was made from JPEG scans of manga so the AI is effectively trained to create JPEG artifacts. But even so, the possibilities.... https://i.imgur.com/gEFHxEsl.jpg https://i...

ESRGAN: AI Neural Net Upscaling (For HiRes Packs?)

Some might be familiar with this already (Laserschwert?), but I'm just discovering it and boooooy is it fantastic. These are the results of upscaling and nothing more with ESRGAN using a Manga109 dataset-trained model. There are all kinds of models you can use, but this one was the most impressive. ...

Re: Question regarding Scummvm Mt 32 emulation.

Roland GS is not MT-32 so leave that alone. You do want to check "True MT-32" so that nothing is confused and wants to emulate the MT-32 default patch list with a General MIDI device.

It's driving me a little crazy that Marty is playing the guitar left-handed.

Re: Lucasarts adds Escape from Monkey Island to GOG and Steam

King's Quest was likely removed so as to not be confused with TOG's King's Quest 2015 reboot. There's also the fact that the "season pass" for all 5 chapters was called "King's Quest Collection". They likely brought it back later after the last chapter was released and attention ...

Re: Lucasarts adds Escape from Monkey Island to GOG and Steam

Mmm. It was there not long ago and other Telltale games are still available including Sam & Max and the Bone games. It kind of irks me because Tales is the one Telltale game I care about that I don't have on Steam. I have the collector's edition DVD, but still....gotta complete that Steam librar...

Re: Lucasarts adds Escape from Monkey Island to GOG and Steam

Tales is still available on GOG. Seems to be missing from Steam now, though.
