But I gather tools like TR5’s tom2pc equivalent can be developed for TR5, supporting its new triggers, with TR5Main?

Hence my suggestion of a remake using it. Figured a straight-up port wouldn't work.

I wouldn't care for it. I'm not an expert but the way the game looks is the least of its problems.

That means every single tile would have to be accounted for and replaced per each level file.
All attempts at modding textures we have seen here use the method of swapping the 256x256 pixel texture pages with high-resolution replacements, but this means every tile on each such page has to be replaced one by one... This is exhausting and very likely the reason why the iOS ports texture swaps were never finished (they either run out of time or were simply too tired to continue).
In order to do this in a more efficient way, tools would have to be made to swap out textures across multiple files, as well as models if they were to be modified. This is probably achievable, but requires work and mostly good insight into the games' codebases and file formats. This is more likely to be done by community members, some of which have just the right skill (but might not really have the time) to do this, than by any commercial studio at the request of the IP holder.
Is there another requirement to remaster all of the textures & models besides time to develop an HD remaster for TR5?

People need tools that support TR5 to mod/remaster it ‘besides time’...

Once TR5Main is released I believe it will be easy to remake the game so it actually looks and plays better.

I am not following the software development side at all so I'm new to TR5Main. Where can I read more about it? Fixing TR5 issues and even improving it graphically sounds so good to me. That's the only classic game that lacks any mods

Pretty much what I was getting at.

Bonus points in that you won't have to try and repair a rip of one of the levels or build it entirely from scratch - IIRC one of the leaked winroomedit builds for TRC had a backed-up project for Trajan's Markets.

When is it going to get public release? Omg, it’s been like a long time...
