You're welcome ^^ Most things will be ready "soon", but some others, like the portraits for every character and npc will take me quite a while, because I'm redrawing them from scratch in GIMP using the original image upscaled with waifu2x as basis (I actually use the PS2 version of the portraits since they had better resolution)

What I can tell you, and anyone interested, is that I'll be uploading a new version "soon" with quite a few new textures (The first version replaced 751 textures, while the new one replaces 971 so far)

RE: Persona 3 Portable HD Texture Pack
The backgrounds don't actually load, and instead of keeping the original, it becomes a black background for some reason, I dunno what's causing this, but it only happens with background textures, it's normal if I don't apply the patch..

Also, how do I get rid of the white lines that pop up around the characters textures? I'm using D3D9 cause I can only use that.

Mmmm, can you show me images showcasing your problems, so that I, or someone else can identify the problem?

The background not loading problem only happens with the new backgrounds.

RE: Persona 3 Portable HD Texture Pack
Just a note: it may be obvious, but larger render resolution and larger textures require more video memory.

In fact, with texture scaling (not replacement), we have code that will automatically detect you've run out of video memory (if we didn't crash, which could also happen), and disable texture scaling. If you have reporting enabled, this gets reported - and we see it happen on various video cards, desktop and mobile, etc.

Texture replacement doesn't do this, so if you run out of video memory you're likely to just get black like that.

I don't know about the black backgrounds, but [Unknown] seems to know what he/she is talking about ^^ What I can explain are those white lines. Those are caused because of how the bustups you see are presented in the game. Characters usually have textures for their body and face, and other textures of just a portion of their face, which is displayed above the later, usually to change the facial expression (eyes from open to closed, or stuff like that).
Because you are rendering the game at a higher resolution, the base textures (the ones I haven't replaced yet) just get a simple upscale (unless you choose to use texture upscaling > xbrz), which usually results in those little gaps between the background image, and the one containing the changed facial expression. Igor and Elizabeth (inside the velvet room) for example don't suffer from this problem, because I have already upscaled all/some of their background textures and facial expressions.
Apart from Igor and Elizabeth I have finished working on Pharos and Theodore, almost finished Ryoji, and worked on Akihiko, but those aren't in the version I have uploaded because I started working on them later on. (They will be available in the next update Wink )
There are a lot of characters with different costumes, poses, and facial expressions, so drawing everyone will take me a while, but I'll get there ^^

Soo, long story short, to fix those white lines, you can either use Settings > Graphics > Texture Scaling > Upscale Type = xBRZ to fix the white lines on those I haven't upscaled yet (which are a lot), or wait for me to fix every single one Tongue xBRZ won't look really good for textures like that, but it will at least fix the white lines.

RE: Persona 3 Portable HD Texture Pack
Got it, thank you [Unknown] for letting me know why the background problem is happening, and hououin for helping finding the reason for the white lines, I'll wait until the next update! Perhaps you could include a changelog with version and date so it's better than posting again?

And also, if you could, try Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep FM HD Texture Pack! That would seriously increase how comparable the game would be with 2.5 HD Remix! I tried my attempts at HDifying the textures of the game, but failed at understanding how things work.

Here is a demo comparison of how an HD Texture Pack for Birth By Sleep could look compared to the PS3 Remastered version (I just upscaled Ventus's clothes, a bit of the HUD and the floor). I think the psp version could look better/sharper with a proper pack.

PSP vs PS3

That being said, it's not in my plans for the moment ^^ The PS3 version looks pretty good anyways and has much better cutscenes, which I can't do anything about ^^

Something I might tackle later on is Crisis Core, which is psp exclusive. (Another title I wouldn't mind upscaling is Digimon World Re-Digitize)

RE: Persona 3 Portable HD Texture Pack
Outside of the fonts, and the pixelated edges on a few items on the HUD, this looks really close to the HD Remaster :o
I'll fully support it if you ever decide in the future to do it, that'd give one more reason to replay the game again!

EDIT: By the way, how do you do it, to make the textures work on the game? I tried upscaling some for birth by sleep, but it didn't work sadly. I may try making it myself, and release a pack fully with hidef textures.

EDIT 2: And if you need someone to help you complete THIS pack, count on me! I just need to learn.
