Earth Defense Force 2 Portable English/Spanish UI + PS2 Textures/AI Upscale
Hey, I made a texture pack to use PS2 textures and upscale (AI upscaler = 4x GameAI 2.0), also translated the critical menus to english and spanish, but japanese mission briefing and weapon descriptions go beyond textures, read below, unfortunately this is the only release I'll make as I can't devote more time to it.

The original motivation was that the floor on the beach was lacking so much detail that I didn't know if I was actually walking forward or not due to the repetitiveness of the texture, and the same goes for the mountain stage and the cave stage walls... anyways, it's more playable now, without the PS2 slowdowns in exchange for lower poly and fog, and possible local multiplayer up to 4 players, each version ( PS2 ,PSP, PSVita and Switch ) has ups and downs, but fun is present in all of them.

The game included unreleased English Briefings and Weapon Descriptions, but it's not 100% stable/easy to use, instructions here:



How to install:
In order to install texture packs you first need to enable texture load. To do so, make sure to enable option
Settings > Tools > Developer Tools > Replace Textures
Extract the zip file into your textures folder.
The possible texture paths are:
-PPSSPP/memstick/PSP/TEXTURES (if you download the ZIP)
-Documents/PPSSPP/PSP/TEXTURES (if you use the installer)

Optional Bloom removal cheats by Lunamoo, it's up to you to enable it.
