    Can you explain what is worse?
    I liked the 'HD' textures in Half-Life.

    the bluray looks fine, no point in upscaling further

    >Factorio replaces most if not all of its textures with high res versions
    >it improves everything massively
    So this is the power of not throwing away work and hiring people years later to run your old crap through an upscaling filter.

    The problem is (at least with this and other anime things at least) that the version you remember isn't even necessarily the correct one. Film ages, and the quality it was broadcast in wasn't the best. Contrary to popular belief in Dragon Ball Z the sky wasn't turquoise, it was blue, Goku's gi wasn't a dark orange it was light orange, and peoples skin wasn't pink, it was white. You just aren't used to the color corrected accurate depictions because you grew up with a shittier version.

    In games this doesn't happen as much (getting access to original assets after the fact) but if it did it would look just as weird. Imagine a Donkey Kong Country with the original 3D models uncompressed. It wouldn't look right. We have version of Mario 64 that use the original concept art as a base and still look fucking weird. It is very rare that you can maintain the feel of a game while doing an overhaul.

        That's like only eating watermelon flavored candy until you turn 25, then eating a real watermelon and complaining it doesn't taste right. Like yeah one might be nostalgic and familiar, but it's a bastardization of what the original is and one you didn't even know was the original intention all along.

        That's nothing, be lucky it's not Disney.

        The worst part is, Disney has the original cels, and has released some better shot versions on DVDs but refuses to do it with blu ray because a shitty upscaled version is easier. Even if they've aged like anime (and oh boy they have, they're much older) they have access to so much more money and could easily rescan and color correct nearly flawless versions. Yet they haven't.

          What makes you assume that the left version is a bastardization?

            on the Sakura one? or the Disney one?

            If Disney: Blurred lines. The artificial removal of grain creating an overall less detailed and blurry image. The line on his somtache is literally so blurred it's becoming invisible. And more saturated colors.

            If Sakura: Whites are more yellow, Skin color is more orange. It's not apparent with the hair but if you compare everything else it's easy to tell. Lines on the right are also a bit easier to distinguish. Compare the yellow on the collar on the left and right, or try tracing the black line on her hat/hair and looking at the bleeding or pixilation on areas with lots of lines intercepting.

            It is how it works. You need to have the original cels or masters, re scan them and color correct them to account for the degradation they've had being exposed to the elements for x amount of decades. Disney never lets those things go, and clearly has access to them and the financial means to make sure they are taken care of properly.

              you rescan the master, that's why it's called a re-master. you don't re-photograph the cels and their associated elements.

        AI would've done a much better job
        this is barebones interpolation and some noise filtering

        It's poorly applied noise reduction filters.

        These type of filters have always used AI it's not new in the slightest.

    That's an AI upscale that shows noticeable artifacts and the colors are a bit cooler.
