Wow quite impressed now that I've finally gotten this mod installed. Looks very good on all the tracks I've driven so far. Special Stage Route 5 in particular looks phenomenal! New York looks great too! However, as good as Hong Kong looks, I'm getting these weird sparkle-like effects on the ground on certain parts of the track. Kind of like if you turned up your TV to max sharpness and you start seeing little specs or "sparkles". Any idea how to resolve this?
There is not much you can do about it. Higher resolution means some object will be too sharp. FXAA setting in Graphics Tab can help to reduce the effect.

Ahh got it. Thank you sir! Keep up the great work and looking forward to more progress :)

I am really enjoying the mod and it works perfectly, except for this one visual error that I haven't found anyone else talking about.
It only shows up in the race complete screen, sometimes the sprites showing competing racer's checkpoint times also produce incorrect sprites

I followed the Youtube guide and set up my settings the same as in that guide, is there something Im doing wrong, or a setting that can fix the error shown here? Thankyou

did you get this pnach to work? Idk if it interfered with one of my other settings or the code has an issue but it didn't remove HUD. All I got was a zoom in on the camera making game undrivable.

Hello everyone,
I am very excited to make my first post because it is something on making your game look better. Since PCSX2 has texture dumping and replacement feature, me and my friend Gtafan comitted to a project. The game textures are upscaled with the aid of AI and some textures have been redone manually with Photoshop and paint.net image editors. The cars and tracks now have way more detail and sharpness. Quite few cars have showroom quality wheels, brake discs, calipers and tyres. A few cars have accurate numberplates, driver names(some are redone as AI couldn't make a good job) and so on. The content is now finished. Upcoming releases will focus on fixing stuff.

The mod works in all GT4 variants and TT tracks just follow the installation proccess.
The mod does not affect performance unless you're close on VRAM limit. It can increase VRAM usage a bit.

IF YOU'RE A CONTENT CREATOR/AUTHOR AND USE 2.0+ PLEASE CREDIT MRCassidyART too for his contrubitions.

PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POST TO SEE UPDATES

Requirements:
A PCSX2 1.7 build that supports texture replacements (the later the better)
Around 4GB of VRAM for 4x resolution (PCSX2 has very big VRAM leak and since this folder is very big it will cause severe slowdowns)
Lots of disk space. If you're having hard time with it, make the folder in another drive via PCSX2's folder settings. For example my emulator is in C but folder in D.

NOTE READ CAREFULLY: We are getting questions on crashing. Please turn off 'Mipmapping' and don't use Trilinear/Ultra options in Graphics Settings. If you use Vulkan make sure to dump VRAM before your first race by pressing F9 twice (preferably durin loading). These are not caused from our end.
THE UI IS NOT UPSCALED BECAUSE THEY DUPLICATE MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE EFFECT PERMANENTLY VIDEO OF UI SITUATION

Hi. New user, just getting into the scene. I was wondering is there anyway to get a new tutorial video using the new UI of PCSX2 nightly build? Because my UI doesn't look like the one in the video and some of those graphical options are not available or moved in the new UI and I've played with some settings and while it looks great, it stutters horribly

This was a potentially good mod that is ruined by the anachronistic billboard textures. Realism goes further than just texture fidelity. Upscaling the original billboards instead of just putting in random new advertisements that fit your personal headcanon would have gone a long way towards period correctness, towards player immersion, and towards retaining the original 2000s atmosphere of the base game.
