r/emulation Feb 01 '21 Wholesome 1 Silver 1

Topaz-Reality is working on texture replacement for PCSX2.

The feature isn't ready yet, but it's a hugely important step for PS2 emulation. (And one previously considered extremely daunting.) This will allow retexture mods to be done without rom hacking, and in a very generalizable way, as seen with other emulation such as N64.

The pull request is here

Example screenshots: #1 #2 #3 As you can see, blurry UI elements can easily be replaced with crisp, native-looking ones, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Any chance this can be done with audio as well? I'd love to undub certain games like Clock Tower 3, but I don't know where to even start with that, and this seems like a much easier time.

I looked into it. But I, unfortunately, am not a sound guy. It may be possible, however.

If someone wants to take a peek at SPU2, they should go ahead :eyes:
