Final Fantasy VII AI mods are sorcery. I’m floored by how my game looks with minimal effort. THIS is an HD remaster.

The AI upscaled backgrounds look great, but the character models literally don’t fit.

Yeah you can toggle them. I was just trying this pack out

The chibi high res models fit a lot better with the aesthetic of the game IMO

Are they on 7th Heaven?

I've never liked HD remasters people make of games like this, Mario 64, etc. Something about them always look so shiny and kinda plasticky?

CG from that period, in general, looked a bit plasticky because of the rudimentary lighting.

That's just the background themselves, the upscaling just makes it more noticeable. Lighthing engines back then were kinda wacky, so everything is a bit too shiny, we just don't notice at first due to the low quality.

Naw, I’d fire anyone who brought this to me as an HD remaster.

It’s literally the lowest effort remaster possible. Good for a free mod. Awful if you were paying for it.

That still looks pretty bad, though…

I'd like to see a screen from when Cloud and Aerith are on the roof of the church. Some backgrounds are made for the deformed characters.

I hate it

Looks fine, not sure what the people complaining expect from a an AI mod of a nearly 25yo game.

I’m playing through the original currently and this looks soo much better. Hard to conceptualizer unless you’re looking at the old version

ID: hccv7sj

The screenshot really doesn't do it justice. Seeing a modded version on your PC monitor for yourself is amazing. The game looks like I imagined it looked back in 1998.

ID: hcd39pp

Exactly my thoughts.

A remaster from the PS2 era, sure.

ID: hcd8g2s

I wouldn't mind, that era had better design concepts than the current one tbh

It reminds me of Monkey Island or any point and click adventure game from the mid 90’s

Anyone here trashing ai upscale mods needs to check out moguri mod for ffix

ID: hccpf08

There’s different quality of AI upscale mods though. I think this looks pretty bad, while Moguri looks great. Being AI upscaled doesn’t make it good or bad in and of itself

Yeah I would have much rather had them keep the battle system / static cameras. But remodeled.

What mods are you running?

ID: hccc2uy

SYW with the Ninostyle character models

7th Heaven literally did it all for me. You can swap mods too so Remako is included if you want to see that. It also comes with HD FMVs, a remastered OST, gameplay mods that make it more like an international release, etc...

Ah, yes the power of mods.

16 : Anonymous2021/09/10 22:22 ID: hcd8s8n

Looks awesome, and to think it was done by an AI... Btw I love the PS1 era pre-rendered scenario and it saddens me that it is nowadays seen as a technical imperfection and we are never going to see a new game that has them again.

17 : Anonymous2021/09/10 22:45 ID: hcdbs67

I don't like the re-modeled characters here, but the Remako mod with just the AI-upscaled prerendered backgrounds is the definitive way to experience the "original" version of FFVII IMO (at least until we can somehow experience the original PS1 version/code with upscaled backgrounds, but that tech doesn't exist yet).

18 : Anonymous2021/09/10 23:04 ID: hcde13m

AI upscaling is great, but the New Threat mod is where it's at.

19 : Anonymous2021/09/10 23:08 ID: hcdejqi

I really want to try modding the PC version but can't stand the 15 fps menus during battle

20 : Anonymous2021/09/10 22:56 ID: hcdd2ls

This is how remake should've been. Tbh I don't like new formula especialy for ffvii remake. Hope ffxvi will be more like ffxv
