Update to TR5 HD. I ran all the textures (and some missing cutscene ones through a new algorithm called Gigapixels and ESRGAN. Since the discovery of these two, I can say confidentially it's a lot better than the waifu2x algorithm I used before (more so the weak method used for TR5 before); waifu2x is good better with anime artworks. Unlike the previous algorithm these two allow the possibility of upscaling while adding detail to the target output texture and preserving the original detail.
OP updated with current, updated version, using the above.
As before, I kept the texs at 2048x2048 to reduce loading times. I will be (later) upscaling it to final 4096x4096 for ultimate quality, but will result in longer loading times.

Were you planning to upscale the other games, too?

Also. Would you consider showing us the settings for modders?

the only other game I haven't done yet is TR4, (it's massive set of level held me back from touching it). I plan on doing tR4 after I seeing the results of gigapixels with TR2 this time, see if it looks better than waifu2x in TR2's case.

Such subtle differences, but they work together to make the game look so much better! Amazing job <3

This looks so good. I must play it! It reminds me that I have to try Peixoto patch again.

Damn this completely went right passed me!
Right, after comparison, I found Gigapixel still does not match up to the quality of ESRGAN, so expect a final update using the ESRGAN only algorithm, I need to get this one right.
