Metal Gear Rising: Retextureance (and Sega PC Petition)

I preordered Metal Gear Rising on Steam the day it just appeared. And I replayed initial levels a ton of times. I love that game from Platinum and I've started to work in a few textures for it. I don't know if the number of textures will grow over time, and I don't know if it will become a public mod. But ... here are some screenshots of the progress (wip, of course). This time there isn't a Dev Tool to change materials, add new assets and optimize/improve levels, so only exchange of textures and no more.

And I want to echo the petition to Sega that was originated on NeoGAF and has already run half the planet. A petition for more Sega PC ports. Games from Platinum like Bayonetta, Vanquish or sega classics like Virtua Fighter 5. Let's do it.

This is the original thread:

This is the petition link:

If anyone has not yet put their two cents, it's time to do so.

  3. ya que estas tomandote el trabajo de hacer estas texturas, seria tonto no sacarlas al publico para que otras personas puedan usarlas, ademas, son muy buenas, se nota bastante la diferencia.

    Ojala pongas una descarga de todo esto, para que mas personas puedan disfrutar de tu trabajo

  6. Nice work!
    Question: do you have a way to put the textures back in the archives? I made a texture modification myself (ps buttons instead of 360) but I can only use it thorugh TexMod =/

  7. Mi puta vida.
    Acabo de ver en el hilo de los ports de Sega en Gaf tu comentario y tras esto te ruego, imploro, que una vez listo saques el mod para el disfrute del personal.
    Sigue asi!

  8. This is excellent. The only input I have to offer is that the new leaf texture here makes the trees seem too bare. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-mI0Hwn3b2tE/Uub4F0XeEwI/AAAAAAAAD00/Pl9qITeTI_c/s1920/METAL+GEAR+RISING+REVENGEANCE+2014-01-28+00-48-45-31.jpg

    1. Hi, good eye dude!. Yes, that was a problem in my side because the game doesn't support more than 1 bit alpha mask for grass and tree leaves. Platinum fixed it using textures with few fine details and ugly black borders so they were visible from long distances but horrible in close ups. I was messing around a while with that problem and now I'm proud with new results. You will see soon.

  9. Nice work! Though eyebrows on the first screen look weird, too much contrast, and the black area around eyes is too big.

    1. I've reduced contrast in that texture and less black too. Was a work in progress texture as I said. :P

  10. Can you also make a better texture for the SKY?

    That looks pretty bad and low res.
    You can see patches or something on it.

    1. Thank you, I'll take a look. Although I don't know if it's just a problem in the texture or the game applying color reduction (which would make it impossible to fix).

  13. Maldo this looks excellent. However I have questions. Will blade mode be a problem with increased texture resolution? Blade mode at High Zangeki already slows down a bit after more I hit more than 600 parts.

    Also have you found a way to remove the fps lock entirely?

    1. Sounds like its just an problem with your PC.
      I have a GTX Titan and I can play the game on max and it never goes below 60fps.

  14. This just HAS to become a public mod, The game will feel so much better with this.

    ReplyDelete
  15. You should release a beta pack. (Even if it's TEXMOD)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Metal gear rising is great action game.Dear Maldo,a public texture texture mod please.:)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I fully support this MOD, been looking for something like this to happen. Well done. i'd touch up the characters most of all. with just that i would be happy.

    if all else fails and it becomes a burden, you can just reuse most of the rough normal maps for many of the ground and wall surfaces, instead of remastering whole textures; and just release that as a "HD texture pack -version 1.0" version 2.0 can come later.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I support the MGR Mod and the Sega PC ports. (or remastering)

  22. Is anyone up for making a petition for Metal Gear Solid V and the HD collection to come to PC? I heard a couple months ago them saying that they wont do it unless a lot of people asked for it.

  24. Hey Maldo I don't know how to contact you so I will write here, can you please release an updated mod for watch dogs that you released just before the PC patch was released that enables users with 2 GB vram to be able to play without stutter on ultra textures?
    Thanks !

    INTERNATIONAL CONCEPT OF WORK FROM HOME
    Work from home theory is fast gaining popularity because of the freedom and flexibility that comes with it. Since one is not bound by fixed working hours, they can schedule their work at the time when they feel most productive and convenient to them. Women & Men benefit a lot from this concept of work since they can balance their home and work perfectly. People mostly find that in this situation, their productivity is higher and stress levels lower. Those who like isolation and a tranquil work environment also tend to prefer this way of working. Today, with the kind of communication networks available, millions of people worldwide are considering this option.

    Women & Men who want to be independent but cannot afford to leave their responsibilities at home aside will benefit a lot from this concept of work. It makes it easier to maintain a healthy balance between home and work. The family doesn't get neglected and you can get your work done too. You can thus effectively juggle home responsibilities with your career. Working from home is definitely a viable option but it also needs a lot of hard work and discipline. You have to make a time schedule for yourself and stick to it. There will be a time frame of course for any job you take up and you have to fulfill that project within that time frame.

    There are many things that can be done working from home. A few of them is listed below that will give you a general idea about the benefits of this concept.

    Baby-sitting
    This is the most common and highly preferred job that Women & Men like doing. Since in today's competitive world both the parents have to work they need a secure place to leave behind their children who will take care of them and parents can also relax without being worried all the time. In this job you don't require any degree or qualifications. You only have to know how to take care of children. Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.

    Nursery
    For those who have a garden or an open space at your disposal and are also interested in gardening can go for this method of earning money. If given proper time and efforts nursery business can flourish very well and you will earn handsomely. But just as all jobs establishing it will be a bit difficult but the end results are outstanding.

    Freelance
    Freelance can be in different wings. Either you can be a freelance reporter or a freelance photographer. You can also do designing or be in the advertising field doing project on your own. Being independent and working independently will depend on your field of work and the availability of its worth in the market. If you like doing jewellery designing you can do that at home totally independently. You can also work on freelancing as a marketing executive working from home. Wanna know more, email us on workfromhome.otr214428@gmail.com and we will send you information on how you can actually work as a marketing freelancer.


    Internet related work
    This is a very vast field and here sky is the limit. All you need is a computer and Internet facility. Whatever field you are into work at home is perfect match in the software field. You can match your time according to your convenience and complete whatever projects you get.

    Diet food
    Since now a days Women & Men are more conscious of the food that they eat hence they prefer to have homemade low cal food and if you can start supplying low cal food to various offices then it will be a very good source of income and not too much of efforts. You can hire a few ladies who will help you out and this can be a good business.

    Thus think over this concept and go ahead.
