hi-rez textures for N64 games

Postby TerraFrost » Fri Feb 25, 2005 6:13 am

the newest RiceVideo plugin for N64 emulators can use custom textures instead of the ones in the rom. consequently, games can look much better! comparitive screenshots are attached.

more info. on the plugin can be found here:

(if you want to try it out, try using opengl instead of directx)

Apparently another plugin has been released that allows geometry to be exported as well:

Screenshots suggest that it can be opened / edited with 3d editors such as 3d studio max, etc. Haven't seen any games take advantage of this, yet, but it's never-the-less, neat :)

Uses newer ones than this topic last had.
