    Hey uh Quibi, do you need original resolution version of the assembled "mini" images?



    I ask because, due to the transparency and stuff, I actually was instead using the existing mini images as the source and just overlaying the higher-quality OP thumbnails on top of it for the updated SD images. Then for the HD images I would upscale via nearest neighbor (to retain pixel clarity), make some manual adjustments to the resulting pixel alignments so that the pixel sizes and ratios are consistent between the SD and HD version, and then once again overlay the higher-quality OP thumbnails to get a resulting HD "mini" image.

    So if I were to provide an original resolution of the complete assembled "mini" image, then it wouldn't actually be the source for said assembled HD "mini" image because it was effectively created and assembled directly at its needed resolution rather than downscaled from a larger original resolution like the "title" images are.



    One thing I can at least do is include the thumbnails by themselves in their original resolution with the according contrast & saturation adjustments (especially since that needs to be done before adding the border gradient), and I can include the according versions with border gradient as well (which is twice as think on the "mini" images).


    (also you're not allowed to complain if you don't like that my higher-quality classic_op_ubw_mini doesn't look as saturated as the existing image because I wanted to use the same settings for both that image and classic_op_fate_mini and the 2nd and 3rd thumbnails on my classic_op_fat_mini already looks more saturated than the existing classic_op_fate_mini.png/webp image so any more saturation will make Saber will look flat-out sun-burnt)

    It was actually the not-so tech savvy types I was concerned about since I imagine a more tech savvy person is more likely to manually check for updated software.

    Also this "ultimate edition" is much easier to get up and running with all the extras and stuff than it is to get the non-ultimate edition RN PC version up and running with comparable extras.

    As someone that's totally not a software and coding guy, I like that this site hasn't hoped on any mobile-focused web development bandwagons that I never really liked aesthetically. Perhaps the backend of the forum is trash, but the frontend is still the sort of thing I prefer and in general I still really like how the web looked before mobile-focused stuff came into play (the most obvious other example would be vndb.org, though linuxmint.com is also a good example of a pre-mobile site design that isn't using a dark color scheme).

    I mean, you can even use this forum and post without issue even with javascript disabled (if you know a bit of html that is, e.g. you need to use "<p>" or the like if you want a line-break); even when having javascript enabled it doesn't cause underclocked 800MHz CPUs to sit fully-pegged for a full minute, so overclocked to 4.5GHz results in this site flying.

    OK cool.

    (you're also not allowed to complain that the gradient looks a bit different from the existing images - it's almost impossible to make them completely match since the original entire images are quite dithered, and that plus the general higher-quality image makes it look inherently more contrast-y)



    Aww poo I just realized, by me making that last post it caused this thread to go to a new page and now Quibi has an excuse to not voice his thoughts on my "update notification" idea.

    I was against the auto-download feature from the beginning, and not going to bother maintaining it.
    If anon wanna do it he has my blessing.

    Honestly you can scrap it. Of the few changes I made that I thought were vital, the whole update thing is not one of them. I don't have time to do anything this semester

    I myself was certainly not a fan of it either.



    ...but, uh Quibi, it's not like an update checker requires an auto-downloader. When an update is found, selecting [Yes] could simply just open your default browser and link you the first post of this thread.

    EDIT: As a real-world example, this is how the Windows builds of mkvtoolnix works - it does automatically checks for updates, but clicking "download" on the "new update" window just opens the web page mkvtoolnix.download/downloads.html in your default browser.

    It's possible to use httprequest to just retrieve simple text data from websites like this one, pastebin, roblox, github, etc. using regex captures as needed signifying the latest version. If the number is bigger then the current one, a dialog box could be opened similar to the following: "Information about the latest version of this program is available on the World Wide Web." and the options would be: "Open using default web browser" / "Copy URL to clipboard" / "Show QR Code" / "Ignore for this version" / "Ignore for all versions" / "Close"

    Not that I'm aware of, I've been passively watching this thread ever since the Ultimate Edition thread was made on Reddit 'cause I couldn't get the game to save properly and it was super buggy on macos. I didn't want to waste someone's time asking for help after I saw that it was being ported to macos anyways (I'm not tech savvy at all compared to you guys).

    Hey, nice to hear! Sorry I had to bother you by asking, I couldn't find any progress updates and navigating this forum in general was tough. I'm impressed by your dedication though man, keep it up!

    EDIT: Another thing that I'm not going to allow anybody to complain about regarding my elusive improved OP videos - that my versions of the PS2 OPs look less bright and/or more "washed out".

    The currently-used PS2 OP videos looks like a mid to late 2000s video game with "bloom lighting on all of the things"...and I really don't like that look. So for that reason my PS2 OP encodes have the contrast not quite as cranked up.

    In addition to my idea of implementing such a thing for Fate.exe, it would also probably be a good idea to use it in the installer as well in place of the existing automatic downloader chupathingy that it currently has.

    But the reason I was gone for 9 months was because I went to Japan to take IRL photos of all FSN locations.
    Next patch will replace all backgrounds with their IRL counterparts.

    Here's a sneak peek:

    Also, the game will be played from Saber's POV:

    This is a very important choice:

    So, finally we have a RTX patch for Fate/Stay Night and it looks great!
    So realistic :v

    To be honest, I've humored myself in thinking about using I think it was PonScripter combined with waifu2x'd art assets to at least allow rendering Tsukihime at a higher resolution.

    I only say this because I think I experimented with using I think PonScripter to render Tsukihime with a larger window something like a decade ago but I don't think I then did anything with trying to make the art assets larger or something. I really don't remember the details, and it's totally not something I would say will be a proper project or the like - rather more of an experiment to tinker around with. If I ever do anything more with the concept then I figured I could at least share my results with the world.


    Thing is, my standards for text legibility have increased in the last decade. While I used to be fine with reading lots of text at 640x480 in fullscreen on my CRT monitor thanks to their multisync capability, today it provides too much of a scanline effect that I'm not a fan of for lots of reading (I find that 800x600 has become my new minimum for VNs in fullscreen on a CRT monitor), and I don't like the overly-blurred pixels or straight up pixelated pixels you get with an LCD or OLED screen for such small resolution text.

    Apologies for the super late reply; but this was months ago (when the ultimate edition was first posted on reddit) when I tried to run it and I've since forgotten and had to wipe my computer for unrelated reasons.
