Gaming Revived has released AI-Enhanced HD texture packs for over 150 classic N64 games, including The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Goldeneye, Mario 64, Perfect Dark and more.
Created for N64 fans wanting to play these classics on their PC using an emulator, these texture packs use upscaled textures to improve visuals using Topaz Labs’ Gigapixel AI upscaling software.
As said, the textures of more than 150 classic N64 titles have now been upscaled using GigaPixel AI.
Aside from the titles mentioned above, the packs include enhanced textures for Baanjo Kazooie, Conkers Bad Fur Day, Destruction Derby, Diddy Kong Racing, Donkey Kong 64, F-Zero X, GoldenEye 64, MarioKart 64, Mortal Kombat 4, Perfect Dark, PilotWings 64, Pokemon Snap, Quake64, Rayman 2, Ridge Racer, Road Rash, Rogue Squadron, Shadow of the Empire and many more.
“I heard about a program called TopazGigaPixel that helps to Upscale, and Enhance textures using A.I. interpolation”, GamingReVived wrote on Reddit back in May of this year.
“The results were very stunning on all N64 games. Some of the best results were the "RARE" games. I ended up-scaling over 100 games in the last 2 months and up-scaled all the textures to a 512x dimension. As we know most N64 textures range from 32x,64,128 so I ended up using 512 for best results. I had to keep the file sizes and texture packs to a fair minimum without running into errors even with project 64 large address aware. Some games with smaller texture packs I up-scaled to 1080p like Turok and Mario64 with nice results but didn't look any better then the 512 versions. This whole project started when I wanted to texture MOD Perfect Dark and I stumbled upon Gigapixel and ended up texture packing up 100 games in full HD glory. The results are night and Day and brings the N64 into the modern era without all the blurry textures from 20+ years ago. I highly recommend people to Dump there own textures and purchase A.I. Gigapixel and see what kind of results the community can come up with. The potential for some very interesting texture packs could be made. This texture pack project was based on ONLY enhancing the original assets. This project does not include any ROMS and this texture project is only shared freely.”
