    Alien ?

    But this in not real e-mulating (reproduce perfectly as possible an old game) but re-programming a game!
    i think that a game with new textures with different colours, different themes,
    different feeling change non the general game-feeling but change the game in it-self.
    It is like to see a picture in a photography and say that is the same thing or that is better than see it with your own eyes on a museum!
    Today we want texture-changements, tomorrow sound-changements (Mario 64 with Marylin Manson BGM?? AAArgh!), and then what we will want to change?



    PS: this is my opinion and i don't want to impose it to anyone; i want only that we think that maybe we go to a derivative emulation which maybe is not a real e-mulation but e-mutation.

    Off course, sorry for my bad english...

    Roxoxx:

    well it's just an option for people that want to play with other gfx, it's something like a mod. You don't want to play with new gfx, so don't play with those new gfx. But if somebody else want to play with new gfx, why not ?

    I'm not fond of modding n64 games too but well i leave alone people that have fun with it. So stop polluating this thread.

    roxoxx, the textures will only look high res if they are in your plugins folder... do not put them there and you will see the original ones, which then you are happy.

    Nobody cares what a closed-minded person thinks, stop right now before you make an idiot of yourself.

    when i see THE masterpiece Zelda with these ridicule textures, i think that maybe we have reached the end of emulation spirit and we have reached a circus-dimension where everyone can destroy a game, every game, and re-construct-it without respect for the game in-self and crew who made-it.

    PS: sorry for my english; if i can talk in my native language, i say more bad words about this.
    Basically, I think, had Nintendo had the technology at the time, Zelda would have looked like this (or better), especially since it was supposed to be a realistic game at the time...but I can't say the same for Mario. It's like George Lucas's philosophy on his Star Wars babies and other films, sure he may be totally tinkering with and changing the film, but had he been able to at the time, his movies would have looked the way they do today. So as people have been saying, you can either accept it and go with it or deny it and stick with the old. Neither way is wrong and noone is forcing you to do either, so let people enjoy making games prettier, and if you don't like it noone is going to hate you.

    lets forget about the many artisitc heresies possible here and focus on the opportunities this feature provides us with.

    not only are we allowed the option to enhance games, but to alter them with a whole new look. games like turok can get real world textures to enhance the mayan ruin settings. conker can be cell shaded properly. joanna dark can turn from a plain jane to an "eff-able" hottie, also as demonstrated w bush-link earlier, face mapping can become a reality.

    this feature opens more artisitic potential than any other emulation feature has in the past, all the while we also get to play our 64 games as close to the intended way as possible.

    DC be sure to make a new thread...

    Making a new thread...possibly making it a sticky, would make it easier for ppl to find the hi-rez packs.

    Also, I do understand that some people will be upset about this new feature, but when it comes to comparing it to changing the Bible, or Star Wars films, or whatever, we still have the option to choose. You can either play with or without hi-rez packs with the same plugin.

    I personally love the idea. It brings new life into the games, and from what I've seen so far with Zelda, has the potential to make N64 games look absolutely beautiful. I'd also like to add my own things to the games just for kicks. But for those who grind their teeth at the thought have to remember that you can turn it off at anytime.

    As long as I can still play the original game...unaltered, I have no objections.

    Seriously :homestar:

    The Plugin doesn't dump any Textures for me and the graphics are very glitchy, I don't think it's supposed to look like this, any suggestions?

    /edit: The debugger shows pages of "exception in decompression" and "Cannot lock texture" errors.
