What's new
  • Most issues reported these days stem from users not enabling their emulators to use the required amount of RAM.
    We also tend not to use the search feature but post our issues within the texture pack release page.
    Failure to load a texture pack should not be posted in the release thread unless you have already patched the emulator.

    If you don't have the resources to use Large/HD texture packs please do not attempt to do so.
    Users should have a minimum amount of System RAM not less then 4GB's.
    If you have less then 4GB's of RAM do not post about how your emulator crashes,
    RAM is dirt cheap so invest some money into your PC.

    I would like to say thanks to squall_leonhart
    for posting this Solution.

Ocarina of Time retexturing development kit

Mode7 created this to have a knowledge and material base for the all retexturers on this project and others.
Among tutorial and tool recommendations it also has links to an extensive library of base textures and a huge collection of reference photoshop files that can show you how a certain texture is made (ordered by area and function)

Find the link here.

If the retextureing development kit does not have the right base textures you are after you can always check the following websites for some.

The art aim
This Retexture Project has a style that everyone should follow if they wish to contribute here.
This project does not seek to add a wildly different art style to the game, but to refine the original,
keeping the original 'feel' of the game, and adding to what the original developers could not produce due to technical limitations (and money).
Not making major changes to what everything is interpreted as, and trying to refine the original into a new, upgraded version of the original is our goal.
Sometimes there are exceptions were the originals, or parts of them just don't fit, or make sense for where they are, or what they appear to be.
These are the only exceptions, and can be improvised and creatively worked upon, changing the original or part of it to something that makes sense, fits and keeps with the original 'feel'.
In the end it's the project management that determines if the texture makes it into the pack.

Terms of Submission
When submitting work for the Zelda OOT Community re-texture project you are agreeing to the following.
  • Artwork submitted isn't permanent, and is subject to replacement by work of higher quality.
  • We reserve the right to keep any work submitted in the pack.
  • You reserve the right to have credit for any work submitted by you.
  • You reserve the right to restrict the use of any work submitted by you to this pack.
If anyone dislikes this please just tell me or if you have a better written version please post it.

Wow, I gotta say, I expected a completely different ToT style. However, now I've seen it, I really like it. I hope you all finish this! It's differently stylised compared to the other texture projects I've seen so far, which makes me attracted to this project.

Great! I did not know you had done retexturing too. Very cool.

Hey, I noticed the Button backgrounds have texture overlap a little on the left. I would think making the buttons just a little bit smaller on the canvas would correct this. Just a suggestion. ;) :)

So, how long has this project been going on? And do you know where Mode7 is?



Active member
Nope there just etxtures that were posted ages ago.

And i abandoned this project (Because of Kmans pack(if you luck enought to have his awesome pack) )

I did all the skies as I promised long ago.
This was far more work than I expected since they consist of over 450 textures. But it was worth it!
Special thanks go out to microdev for his HiRes-Easer tool.

They are rendered and therefore aligned, so the transitions are really nice to watch.
The resolution is 4096x512 without the top (which is additionally 1024x1024).
So you will need A LOT of Vram (Maybe I'll do a smaller version).

Is there a way to use DXT texture compression with rice? I think this would improve performance a lot.

I consider this as a standalone release for the community project - though I'm working on Zelda atm just for fun.

Concerning Mario: It's not death but I can't be bothered working on it right now.

Wow.... awesome work on the sky textures. They are beautiful by themself, but they fit perfectly too. Great job!

Does anyone know if it's possible to replace the static 320x240 Backgrounds

Yep you sure can! Gonetz has made a tool that dumps the textures so that Glide64 can load 'em up!

Here's the link to the tool: http://www.emutalk.net/showthread.php?t=43644

And Here's an example of what Djipi has been able to do with it:



New member
whoa ctatumt - will those textured backgrounds be in the updated Celda pack? If so that would be too good.

Djipi said his pack is going to be 100% complete so... yeah I'm guessing these still backgrounds will be released :)

Anywho mode7, this is looking SO good! I agree that the new skybox looks really really great. It gives the sky a lot more depth! Everything else is coming along nicely also. Keep it up
