MrFlibble Posted January 9, 2019 Share Posted January 9, 2019 So the increasing the resolution of old video game graphics using neural networks is all the rage these days, so I decided to jump in! My first try was waifu2x, which turns out to be not the best thing around by today's standards, yet it produced results far beyond what a conventional pixel scaler can do. But now there's ESRGAN, and people are getting pretty interesting results with a model trained on Manga images. So I tried this out, with quite interesting results (IMO), and I couldn't resist doing some Dune II screenshots too (all coming from the official Westwood screenshot pack): None of the images were edited in any way, except scaled down from 1280x800 to 640x480 (for correct aspect ratio) and converted to the original 8-bit palettes using mtPaint with Dithered (effect) dithering method.
