your work is so stellar and faithful to the original that it almost feels like a scam, a mod has no right to be THIS on point all the time. I still wanna believe that you guys have access to capcom's secret vault of unused assets and all of this is just a ruse by capcom to make more money from re4. it's the only explanation.
I believe they are genuine, but this creates hype among the fans in a way a regular release wouldn't.

Haha no scam XD
And no, we don't have access to anything from Capcom unfortunately... But this makes the texture hunting and re-creation an entertaining part of the process ;P

For someone who has never played RE4, is getting the Steam version and installing the HD Project the best way to play the game in 2017?

Yep. That will be the easiest and most painless way to go about it.

Not finishing in 2017 though I think.
Thanks a lot. Is it still worth installing? I checked the "progress" site but it's a spoiler fest so I bailed. How much of the game is retextured?

Not 100% on topic, but relating to RE4:

I have a weird problem with Resident Evil 4 on Steam - once I quit the game, the screen simply stays black and my PC completely stops responding. I can still hear sound in the background, but nothing will respond at all. Not even Ctrl+Alt+Delete works. This is even after reinstalling the game too.

That being said, no one else seems to have this issue. So I'm a little at a loss as to what to do. Otherwise, everyone else seems to like this port.

Running off an Intel 6600K, Nvidia 1070, 16GB RAM, tried both SSD and HDD... So my hardware shouldn't be an issue.

To be fair, it's been some months since I tried again. I should give it a go..


60fps does feel like it introduces more aim sway. Albeit, my experience with the 30fps versions are somewhat limited (excluding the Wii version).

Relating to the topic: This is shaping up to be a fantastic mod. I really hope Capcom isn't stupid enough to cease and desist this.

I'd try doing a clean install of the latest Nvidia drivers as that may be something to do with it. If that doesn't work, try rolling back to the previous drivers maybe. I definitely haven't had those issues with an Intel CPU and a GTX 970.

Also - amazing work as usual guys, well done!

Your computer is broken, and dangerous. You must get rid of it asap.

I'm willing to take care of it :p

Good idea - That is something I didn't think to do back then.

I would never wish to risk you getting hurt. :p

Stop it man, this is too good...
Only nitpick is the removed wooden handle on Broken Butterfly.

Hehe thank you!

The reason of that change is the weapon has grey/metallic grip when you see it inside the treasure chest and in the examine model. But it's brown/wooden when Leon is using it and in the Inventory. So, I guess that was a Capcom slip... I have no idea which one is the right design I just liked the grey one the most :p

What I exactly meant is Capcom didn't gave us anything.
But yes, we found some of the libraries (or similar ones, because I've noticed some textures are shared in a looot of texture libraries spreaded all over the Internet). Most of the textures we found are mostly random textures (bricks, metal, plancks and thinks like that)

But even if we find the original, sometimes that's not enough for our HD standards and we need to re-create the texture anyway.

Then we have all the pictures Capcom made by themselves during their travel to Europe. That texture library isn't anywhere but in Capcom's offices (If they didn't delete all the files already of course...)

So, I'm sorry but there's no conspirations, lies or anything around here. Just and obsessed and stubborn guy who finds things on the Internet :p

that's exactly what a conspirator would say though.
I've got my eyes on you "stubborn guy".

Have you tried contacting capcom and asked if they could dropbox those photos for you in full rez ? Could be pleasantly surprised.

Holy shit, those baked shadows look good! I just hope you aren't tempted to go through the whole game again and apply them everywhere, or you'll never finish. ;)

i don't know if i have asked this question earlier, this thread has been going on for years after all. So Mr. Chris and Mr. Albert, what's your take on the main/human characters skin shading?

For example, will you go for something realistic? Left for Dead games are not running in the most advanced engine ever or a new one yet it looks really convincing. Or will you just go with the same old texture with increased definition?

So how come this extra chapter was started before the the main game assets were completely finished (Island)?
Albert finished his pass at the Island areas a while ago. I just haven't been able to complete my pass. So, Albert continues to move forward and make progress in the meantime. Hope that helps!

Thank you, Chris. So that means it's underway. That's the best news up till this point. You guys will have created an Official HD Remaster in my eyes and stern opinion.

I'll be donating the sum of a full retail game with tax in my area after the Island is finished. You guys deserve it. I'll see if I can get some of my pals to kick some $ your way.

Buy a big sub sandwich or something. It's would I would do. Lol.

We'll probably stick with the "make the new textures as faithful to the original as possible" idea, but in real HD. But we'll decide about extra details, adjustments, improvements, specular effect calibrations, etc on the fly.

Thanks for asking!

I would contact Capcom and see if they want to make this an official HD texture upgrade pack. Then, I would put that in my resume and get a job making good $ somewhere in the games industry.

You guys are great.

I've become totally at peace with waiting until the entire project is finished to replay this game.

Work looks phenomenal

I've never played this and am waiting until it's finished to play it for the first time!

Very excited, simply incredible work.

I just started playing through the first areas of the game and noticed the "Bingo" Section is just too much for my aging CPU to keep 60fps. Hopefully by the time this is fully released I've already upgraded my PC to something from this decade.
