A few months ago we presented an interesting initiative created by a fan who, with the help of an AI, was making a remake of the mythical Final Fantasy VII. Well, the first playable version of Final Fantasy VII Remako HD is now a reality, and you can enjoy it completely for free.
This new version of the game has managed to increase the resolution of the original textures up to 4 times, thanks to the use of a neural network. As we explained to you during the development of Final Fantasy VII Remako HD, this AI works in a similar way to those of some well-known ” apps ” of photography, which create interesting pictorial effects in images. Thus, these simple artificial intelligences reconstruct textures in low resolution games and generate texture maps in high resolution.
The mod works with all versions of PC FFVII and can be downloaded for free from the project website. It is not the only remake of this type that has appeared recently, such as the 4K version of Metroid Prime 2 improved by the AI.
