Really crazy results, i thought it was some real time feed of original, seeing as it looked so crisp.

Oh my god ! You are a genius. As William Birkin said "It's Sheer Perfection".

This is a crazy upscaling stuff, this is amazing!

Holy crap this is gorgeous. Is it possible for the software to upscale the whole game, or does it only work on cutscenes?

4D-Executer please!

May I request the Resident Evil 3 intro? That was the best FMV after this one.

edit: though those 4D Executer requests sound good.

Only now was i able to tell Annette was entering the lab you made Sherry's vaccine in, from the lighting behind her at 1:01 . Makes so much more sense in the Remake now

You have a lot of Silent Hill stuff up on your channel. If you could ever get a great source of the Silent Hill 2 "TGS 2001 Spring Trailer" and upscale it, that would be awesome. I don't think the AVI file here on silenthillmemories would cut it but maybe its worth a shot lol http://www.silenthillmemories.net/sh2/videos_en.htm
Its my most favourite trailer of Silent Hill 2 and is still incredible today.

Amazing job! Could you do the same for the Resident Evil Outbreak intro in the future? That intro still gives me chills even today…

I would like to see Diablo 2 cinematics enhanced by this SW.

Result is that good because video contains a lot of "hidden" information in every frame, up-scaling each of them allow to extract different information from each of them, and with motion your eyes merge everything in a super detailed presentation. Unfortunately the algorithm also evidence the very poor quality of the original models, texture and rendering. But hey, it was 1998.

Capcom somehow needs to get aware this is now possible, so that they could hurry up with the rerelease

The only thing more perfect than this would be all of dino crisis 2's cutscenes…i'd be able to die happy….well…..maybe after a sequel and remake as well.

Remember when this CGI was the best thing we've ever seen in a video game??

This video is sheer HD perfection. I hope they will release all of the other original RE2 clips in HD format too :).


May 5, 2019, 1:04 pm Reply

You should combine it with this mod and release completed HD remastered version of re2: https://youtu.be/Gj2SfyV6Sy4

now that your tech is more advance, can you re-do age of empire? and diablo 2!

Honestly I like the William Birkin in this RE2 original. He looks cool and cold blood, you can feel it espcially from his voice. In other games in the franchise, the William is a little bit childish.

Wow, the work on remake wasn't cheap, it feels like a legit work from company

Can you remaster helicopter crash scene in re2 also?

Have you seen a 1998 tgs silent Hill trailer? It has hi-res cutscenes in it, probably 640×480. Consider for an upscale.

I think this is my favorite cutscene from all the games !

Maybe I’m the only one asking this here but… what’s the name of the song in the beginning of the video?(When you explain what you did with the cutscene) it’s so dark and twisted, I love it.

Thanks for the upgrading of the cutscene, my favorite in the whole game! 😍

Can you restore resident evil 2 second scenario helicopter crash scene in 4K?

This scene reminds me, the developer team forgot to tell how the T-Virus infected the city in REmake 2.

A friend and I would always laugh at the guys neck at 2:26. It looks so unnatural.

Awesome! I'm up-scaling this very same scene for a play through of the RE2 Seamless HD Project as we speak, and I am using Gigapixel A.I. to do so. The output resolution is the same size as yours. I will post a link when I am finished, of the video on my YouTube channel if you would like to see the results of how that program does the same job. 😀 You should make a tutorial on how to use ESRGAN sometime. Looks like a better way to do things for sure.

So fucking good

Just wondering how do you upscale videos with ESRGAN/IEU? I can't seem to get it to work with any video files
