With Final Fantasy 7 Remake still absent a release date—it was revealed four years ago—you might as well just stop waiting and go play the original again.
While not as dramatic as a complete remake, modders have been giving it an HD makeoverand one of the mods has now hit 1. The Remako mod improves the quality of the battle textures, world textures and cutscenes, as well as Final Fantasy 7's gorgeous pre-rendered backgrounds. These backgrounds have been improved since the beta, says the mod's creator, while bugs and graphics issues have been fixed.
The algorithms use what they've learned from analysing images to blow them up without losing detail or leaving them a blurry mess. Check out the screenshot page to see more of the results. While upscaling efforts aren't always guaranteed improvements, Remako looks great, like plonking on a comfy pair of rose-coloured glasses. If you fancy downloading it, follow this install guide.

Using state of the art AI neural networks, this upscaling tries to emulate the detail the original renders would have had. This helps the new visuals to come as close to a higher resolution re-rendering of the original as possible with current technology. What does it look like?
Below are two trailers. One is a comparison of the raw images, while the other shows off the mod in action. If that's still not enough, then please check out the screenshot gallery here. How far done is it? The entire game is converted and so it is fully playable. Because Final Fantasy VII is a big game and I haven't yet had a chance to check every nook and cranny of the game, I can't guarantee that I've squashed all bugs or graphical imperfections.
This is why the mod will be first released as a beta. Click on this link to go to the download page. Please leave a comment below, with your thoughts about the mod. Wiseman said…. January 29, at AM. Unknown said….

The latter has particularly jarring pre-rendered background pixelation compared to the rest of the game. January 29, at PM. Snoopey said…. Do you have any objections to this being modded into the Switch version when it releases? I highly doubt you can mod the Switch version when it does release. But if you can manage it, let me know.

Game content and materials copyright Electronic Arts Inc. All Rights Reserved.Final Fantasy 7's pre-rendered backgrounds looked pretty pixelated on the PC, upscaled from their original tiny resolution. But now you can make them look remarkably better with the FF7 Remako HD graphics mod, which is available to download as a beta today. If you're wondering how that works: Last week I wrote about how modders are using neural networks to more intelligently upscale images, to great effect with the low-res backgrounds featured in old PS1 games.
The upscaled images aren't magically perfect—there's naturally some lost detail and some bluriness when you quadruple the size of an image, but this technique does a remarkable job of preserving the style of the original work while getting rid of the pixelation. Check out the video above for some comparisons. According to the Remako Mod's author, all the backgrounds in FF7 have been converted, but it hasn't been fully checked over.
Some graphical oddities will likely crop up here and there, hence the beta release. A similar mod for Final Fantasy 9, Moguri Memoria, is likewise a work-in-progress. Its latest release, v5, is available here. Please deactivate your ad blocker in order to see our subscription offer. Wes Fenlon. See comments. Topics Mod.She develops feelings for Cloud and the player is given the option to flirt with her at times.
Jessie is a young woman with brown eyes and medium-length brown hair tied into a ponytail. In Hoshi o Meguru Otomeit is mentioned she is about Aerith's age. She wears a red headband, a blue top underneath a metal breastplate, metal pauldrons, brown gloves, knee-length green capris, and armored boots. Her appearance in Final Fantasy VII Remake stays true to her original design, but adds a black mail shirt to the ensemble. Jessie is the technical expert of Avalanche who builds bombs for raids on the Mako Reactorsfollowing the plans of the original, more violent Avalanche.
She develops a crush on Cloud and does a poor job of hiding it. Despite being the technical expert, Jessie is pained by insecurities, and is quick to blame herself if a mission goes awry. After Cloud and Barret have set up the bomb and are evacuating, Cloud must help Jessie, who had gotten her leg stuck, or else she won't be able to open the door to leave the reactor.
While the mission was a success, unaware that President Shinra activated the reactor's self-destruct when her bomb failed to explode, Jessie blamed herself for the resulting devastation. The Avalanche members part ways and to regroup at train back to the Sector 7 slumsduring which Jessie shows Cloud a digital model of Midgar along with her fascination with computers.
Jesse watches the new of the bombing at 7th Heaven soon after, the original depicting her impressed that her bomb made the news while the remake depicts her regretting the destruction she assumed her bomb caused.
The next day Avalanche sets off to Sector 5 Reactor. Jessie has made everyone a fake ID card to get past the train's security check, but because of the previous day's attack the system has been updated and the group is found to be holding forged IDs and are forced to jump off the train. Biggs, Wedge, and Jessie stay behind when Cloud, Tifa, and Barret jump off first, Jessie disguised as a train conductor.
Cloud can compliment her on her disguise, or tell her it needs more work.
This answer affects the affection value toward Tifa. On their way to bomb the Sector 5 Reactor, the party comes across Jessie who apologizes for the faulty ID and feels the reason they got caught is her fault. She promises to make an improved ID for the next mission. She is glad she could talk to Cloud one last time and says since many people died because of their actions, this is their punishment.
While the original depicts Jessie among the causalities when Shinra brought the upper plate down on Sector 7, the remake has her die as the result of the Whispers arranging her to be crushed under rubble when her grenade prematurely detonated. After being dug out by Cloud, Jessie uses her final moments to tell him and Tifa not to be sad over her death. During Chapter 4Jessie asks Cloud to join her alone on a mission to the Sector 7 plate, though Biggs and Wedge join soon after.
The four of them travel by motorcycle to the employee housing district, and there the group, excluding Cloud, is served a meal by Jessie's mother at their family's homestead.
As Cloud enters the home via a back door, Jessie's voice replays the details of his mission. Afterward, Biggs and Wedge inform Cloud of her father's quandary, that being him succumbing to mako poisoning. As the group infiltrates a Shinra storage facility, Jessie takes a stealthy route to acquire blasting agent while Cloud, Biggs, and Wedge assault the installation with force.
Jessie appears to Aerith within the Lifestream when she thinks of Cloud and Tifa, and Jessie's remnants respond to their names. Jessie causes Aerith to call Biggs and Wedge and the three are happy to hear Cloud joined Avalanche officially, and the group is fighting a larger threat, but tell Aerith they are fated to never be absorbed into the Lifestream due to the lives they took while alive. Jessie asks Aerith to leave them because she must still have a task to fulfill before she is absorbed, and being near them will only taint her with their sinful memories and inflict their fate on her.
As they leave Aerith calls to them and tells them their deaths helped save people by delaying Shinra, allowing more of Sector 7's people, including Marleneto evacuate in time.
Jessie was designed by Tetsuya Nomura.It uses AI neural networks to enlarge and enhance the pre-rendered backgrounds, FMVs and other textures in the game. This makes them look much higher resolution than before, helping the game look good even in I know it's been a long time since I released version 1. All of these features should, in theory, be technically possible, but I haven't tried all situations yet.
So I can't promise each feature will find its way into the next update as described above. When can you expect this? I do know that I will do everything I can to get it to you guys well in-time for the FF7 Remake's release so that you can play through the original before you do your first run in the Remake.
What do I have in store for Remako, what is going to be my other upscale project and a little bit of trailer fun.

I should state that if you want to use the 7th heaven mod, which has an issue with certain things like xpadder working, then by method will help it work.
Xinput isnt worthless as it allows me to play old, non steam direcrinput games and still use dpad and triggers. I can't get the triggers to recognize in game at all. I have dpad working, but no luck with LT and RT. This solved the problem for xbone controller while using 7th Heaven. Last edited by Soapy Papoose ; 17 Oct, am. Thank you for this, Toofy. It works too with 7th heaven 2. Skywalker24 View Profile View Posts.
