Persona (1) - HD UI (v3.3 - Persona Cards update)

Version 3.0 is now preliminarily complete.This includes a long-needed revamp of all the character portraits. Here is a preview of what changes have been made to the portraits: Click here to see the difference.

In order to make the game more accessible (and bearable) for modern gamers, I made the original Persona PSP game a little prettier. This looks really great on a switch or smartphone.

This took so long, I had to restart about halfway through because of text issues, so please don't hesitate to comment if you liked it.

If you find any unchanged textures, let me know and I can make a quick update.

Thanks to: Fiend, tiornys, DollarRegistratsiya, efonte, GabrieliosP, Fatal Anime ESRGAN model, Fatal Pixels ESRGAN Model

What is changed:
- All dialog fonts looks like Persona 3/4 text.
- All other fonts use a clean HD font
- All game character portraits use official or waifu/hand edited images
- All outdoor maps have been upscaled using waifu2x
- Title screen has been slightly improved
- Battle UI has been completely HDified
- All ending stories and images have been redone
- All credits have been HDified (god that took so long)
- Movie previews in Movie Mode are now higher resolution

What hasn't changed:
- Background images and character sprites are as they were. Feel free to use the inbuilt PPSSPP upscaling on these
- Movie files are the same, still look nice
- Map UI icons are left the same as they look fine

What I might do in future:
- Upscale the persona cards (It's hard to get all personas... if you can help me, please do!)
- Finish up the casino games (make it a little tidier)
- Get some of the UI element fonts looking closer to their originals

By popular demand: How to apply these textures
You need: An American rom image of Persona PSP (ULUS10432 is the ID). I use this with an undub version and it works fine.

1. Install PPSSPP
2. Load up your rom.
3. Go back to the menu and create a game config (this gives this game its own settings)
4. Go to Game Settings > Tools > Developer Tools
5. Check the box near the bottom that says "replace textures"

6. Inside your PPSSPP folder, there will be a folder somewhere called PSP (mine is in PPSSPP/memstick/PSP)
7. You should see a folder called TEXTURES. If not, make it and go in.
8. Create a folder called ULUS10432 (that's the ID of American Persona PSP)
9. Copy the contents of the download above into that folder.
10. Play!

Alternate Fonts: If you want something closer to the original fonts, drag and drop these files into the UI folder.

3.3.1 Persona Cards all upscaled. Thanks to GabrieliosP for the textures. Quick update added
3.21 Eriko's portraits have been tweaked.
3.2 Have re-added the official artworks as an option. They look pretty good.
3.1 Added USA Localization portraits.
3.0 All portraits are now redone in a better, uniform style.
2.5 Made good progress on the casino games. End credits flashbacks look nice too. Used ESRGAN on maps.
2.4 Added HD movie thumbnails in the movie section. Still haven't done them in the credits section.
2.3 Updated the title screen to be a bit more HD. Made the movie menu a bit more reliable.
2.2 There was a missing zero in the font, and the battle damage font was using a thin font. Thanks to GabrieliosP on GameFAQs
2.0 Rehashed everything. Everything seems to be working great now. All endings.
v1.7 Added more NPCs, pink maps, fixed a title issue.
v1.6 Added maps from the Ice Queen path. Fixed issue with Fusion text.
v1.5 Added Aki and Dr. Nicholai's art. Removed Nanjo specific battle texture. Fixed issue with some overlapping Text textures.
v1.4 Added more NPC portraits thanks to Fiend.
v1.3 Added status effect icons and most paralyze portraits (need Reiji) thanks to Fiend
v1.2 Added death portraits
v1.1 Added Reiji, Yuka, endgame clerks and NPCs.

RE: Persona (1) - HD UI
DUUUUUUDE you're a GOD, I was legit working on this but it was my first time trying to attempt anything like this, was actually working on it JUST now and then opened the forum and was greeted to this, you did better than I could've done. It looks like you used a different font for the text though, if you want to stay more true to the original I did actually find out what the font is that they used in normal text. Looking for it right now

so the original font for this game's dialogue seems to be a modified version of Rodin, got an example here https://fontworks.co.jp/fontsearch/rodin...%20sealed. I think it's funny as well because I was also planning on just doing the UI also, because I think that's the worst looking part of the game. Never got much work done on it because I've been busy these past couple of weeks, also are you planning on doing a UI pack for Persona 2?

Also here's an in game screenshot for more reference https://imgur.com/d5WDHyh

RE: Persona (1) - HD UI
I'll make another font file when I get home as an alternative

I prefer the P4Golden font because that was my debut Persona, but I get ya.

No plans for P2 until at least this one is done.

Nice buddy. If you find something that isn't high res send me a save state and I'll fix it.

Drag and drop this file overwriting the old fonts to change to that font.

RE: Persona (1) - HD UI
Hey, I've been testing out on a couple more save files, and it seems two other party members that you can get Reiji and Ayase haven't had all of their portraits updated, I can send you the save files where you can get the textures

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/psp/924580...aves/24224 - This one has Reiji in the party.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CzrQ5un...sp=sharing - This one has Ayase in the party.

And I'm pretty sure once those textures are done you'll have all possible party members done.

Also the Rodin font looks awesome!

RE: Persona (1) - HD UI
Thanks buddy!

I have updated the file now.

I'm specifically now looking for textures of the characters getting paralyzestatus. I have it for Maki, Masao, Hideheiko and Kei at the moment. I need to get this for other sprites too.

RE: Persona (1) - HD UI
I'd be happy to help. In fact, the minute I saw this I got to work on the Agastya Tree. How much are we increasing the resolution by? 2x? 4x? I'll work in 4x for the time being. Lemme know if that's enough.

RE: Persona (1) - HD UI
You said you finished other persona games, and I've been really wanting to get my hands on a p3 upscale/remaster; Do you have any links to those projects?

Great job on this btw!

RE: Persona (1) - HD UI
For some reason font textures don't load in my game sometimes. The ones at the very beginning of the game, location names and main menu. They just appear without HD textures, happens randomly. Maybe something with textures.ini?
