Initial D Special Stage "HD Remaster" Project
Hey all, as im sure a lot of you know the PS2 emulator got the ability to dump texture files as well as load up custom ones. It's not part of the official public "release" build yet but it is easy enough to give the emulator this ability, So I decided as my first project to work on making an "HD" mod for IDSS. I am mostly using AI upscaling along with some custom work where needed. (More custom work will come later, right now it's just for the more dire of textures the AI struggles with.)

This brings me to a few comparison images, I have linked em externally because I run 4k at home, do disregard the broken speedo, that randomly broke and I haven't tried to get to the source of the issue yet because its an easy indicator of when textures are being replaced if I've replaced 1 texture and I'm trying to find it, and the garbled license place is just a glitch of the emulator currently.

So I am intending to publicly the first build fairly soon, in the interest in transparency I will say up front that I do have a (new) Patreon for this work which can be found at for this upscale project as well as others in the future if people would like to support.

The 1080 resolution release will be publicly released. 1440 and 4k will be Patreon backed exclusively though, and 1080 resolution releases will be released a week early there.

This is by no means a need to back the project to get the texture pack thing, but did wanna put it out there up front before I do the public release and drop a bombshell on people, I did just wanna share this though because I figured some here may enjoy the work.

Just a minor update, I got around to figuring out how Patreon and all that works and getting the files uploaded. so the higher res and the early access builds are up at Will have public access to the HD build up in a weeks time.
First public release!
