holy fuck, why have I not heard of this?
>uprezzed models actually look decent
>old painted backgrounds persist, without too much jarring contrast

as someone who played the original only a few years ago and never finished it, will this be worth the money? was there any story stuff I forgot/never reached that's likely to get the modern 'tolerance' treatment?
>>
and yes, the contrast in some places is a bit glaring, but it was in the original as well. This is a far cry from that RPGmaker FF 'update' that /v/ had a field day with recently.
>>

> get the modern 'tolerance' treatment?
What does this mean?
>>
>>322997074
referring to all the story aspects and dialog that is apparently being considered too risque for modern audiences in the FF7 remake.
>>
>>322997161
This is likely just the original game with a few fancy filters.
>>
>getting this excited over a console port from the generations ago

It was okay, but I mean, come on.
>>

>>322997068
>ld painted backgrounds persist, without too much jarring contrast
It would be fine if it weren't for the seams and scaling artifacts. If they just used nearest neighbor or integer scaling I would be fine, but holy shit it looks like that god awful ffv remake screenshot where everything is in tiny boxes and you can see the edges don't match up
>>

There IS a jarring contrast and it looks horrible.

looks like puppets over a painted backdrop. don't know if its qt or displacing

yes, as I said in my second post it's clearly there, but it always was. it may be a little more obvious now, but hardly a dealbreaker, at least for me.

It's a better version/retelling of the Dragon Ball's story.

Enjoy your iphone port. The UI is fuckhuge.
>>
>>322998163

You talk like IX is some kind of forgotten FF that wasnt well received.
>>
>>322997806
Nope this is a fucking dealbreaker for me, they butchered the gorgeous backgrounds and imagery this game has. It looks worse than the psone version.
>>
I'm sad FF9 is never going to get a new localization. Most of the references were lost since we either never got some of the games the games (2, 3, 5) or the localization was so bad you really couldn't refencence it well (4 and 7) outside of "that giant sword remind me of a spikey hair dude"
>>
>>322997068
This looks terrible.

Play it on an emulator.
>>
I'm glad but I don't understand how this exists. They threw the source code for FFIX away. I wonder if the 20GB filesize is because they just tacked all sorts of shit onto a PS1 rom.

FFX is next in a few months. And then a FFXII remaster, but probably only after a year of console exclusivity.
>>
Eh, it's the boring one of the PS big 3. But maybe they update the music, that was one of it's strong suites.
>>
>>322999274
PSX emulator with some fancy filters.

it looked terrible back then, it still looks terrible now.

I see no reason to not emulate it at the original resolution.

I liked FF9, it was pretty cool. This track was amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUrC5R30Ofk

Played it when I used to go into that strange dungeon thing in FF11 expansion.

On emulator is even worse. Stop sprading the "on emulator looks better" meme
>>
Backgrounds are still shit, nope, thanks.
>>
>>323004545
Original res looks better in PS games with prerendered graphics. This hacky shit is crap, and just like with FFVI on Steam, Square Enix Goya prove that they don't understand what an aesthetic or an art style is.
>>
>>322996946
>uprezzed
They are brand new models made in low poly style so as to not clash with the backgrounds.
>>
>>323004886
no it doesn't, PS1 background look more pixellated and generally worse upscalled on 1080p.

Protip retard, you can play FF7 and FF8 PC ports in 640x480 so as to not have disconnected between too smooth/clear models and low res backgrounds. I can guarantee you that you will be able to play FF9 PC port in 640x480 as well, as you should.

>>
>>323005565
holy fuck did you port the game? Why are you so defensive? That background is shit but its clearly better than the first two screenshots in this thread.
>>
I'll give it this; higher resolution rendering of the character models combined with sharper textures makes them look like early PS2 models, surprisingly. On the other hand, they stick out like a sore thumb even WORSE than the FF7 port's models did due to a higher rendering resolution for models in contrast to the prerendered backgrounds.
>>
>>323005742
>clearly better
Maybe if you're blind. All 3 of them look like shit because they never looked good to begin with.
>>
>>322997161
There's a part where Zidane grabs Garnet's ass on a ladder which is really tame. So yes, there will be outrage about it.
>>
>>323005806
I have them both open and im flipping though both of them, if you can't see how pixelated the ff9 is compared to ff7 then you're the blind one.
>>
>>323005791
>I'll give it this; higher resolution rendering of the character models combined with sharper textures makes them look like early PS2 models
They are actual new models, not just old models being renderered in high res. You can emulate in high res and the original models will never look this good.
>>
>>323005876
Shit, looking at >>323005387 I realize they actually did increase the polygons and redrew the textures. Surprising amount of effort for a port they're doing themselves compared to just taking the work of others almost two decades ago and patching it up.
>>
>>323005976
The only reason they're putting in effort is because they also had to recode if from scratch by reverse engineering the original due to losing the source code. They had to do the exact same thing with Kingdom Hearts 1 HD which also had them improve main character and important NPC models while they were at it.
>>

2 and 5 had releases in america before 9 came out
both on the ps1 I might add

95% of the list is still there, literally only a few are missing so you're a fucking idiot if you want whole game retranslated just becasue few miniscule references are missing despite the game being still nothing but references anyway.

I did this in literally 10 minutes with upscaling of a 640X480 jpg I found on google image and then dropped some filters so it didn't look like a pixelated mess. Does it look good? Fuck no, it looks like Picasso threw up on a snes filter but I feel like it doesn't look nearly as jarring. If they had kept what was the original renders and did some post processing it could look WAY better. At this point just emulate the damn game because changing the character models and then leaving all the pre-rendered background the same looks weird as hell.
>>
>>323007758
Protip retard, play in 640x480 and you won't notice any jarring difference.

The seams are a problem but overall the backgrounds look nicer than it does emulated. Best thing will be the character models not jittering around constantly.
>>
>>323008303
The seams are probably the only valid complaint and even then I doubt they will even be visible in 640x480

Aren't the backgrounds drawn in higher res then scaled down for Playstation resolution? No fucking way they were drawn at 320x240 or whatever it is. The high-res backgrounds should be archived somewhere. They should just slap those in.
