Default TR2 HD Upscale x2

Since the release of TR5 HD x2, found here, I've decided to touch on TR2's textures as well. As I initally planned, I've upscaled TR2's texs to 2048x2048, with less denoise reduction, detail preservation and edge smoothing +.4; value well enough to retain details, while enhancing them. I still use the ReShade and waifu2x algorithm simultaneously.
I avoid 4096x4096 because, as the tex size increase, the loading times increase significantly. That high res makes the game load for excessive periods, and drops frames during gameplay.
2048x2048 holds up well.

Download

Installation instructions same as before:

Installation step-by-step:

1. If you have not already, download the Peixoto Patch.
2. Unzip the file to a folder of your choice.
3. Download the upscaled textures from the link above.
4. Unzip the textures to a folder of your choice. It does not have to be in the same patch or game location.
5. Start the application Help.exe of the Patch folder.
6. In the list on the left side, look for Tomb Raider 2.
7. On the right side, you have all the instructions on how the patch works. Click Texture Swapping. Now in Configure and in Path click on "..." and choose where you unzipped the upscaled textures folder. The destination location should point to folders Dumps and Replacements of the unzipped file.
8. Scroll down until you reach Settings.
9. Turn on Allow Dynamic Super Resolution. This option will make the game run at the maximum resolution of your monitor, with the correct aspect ratio and FOV.
10. Turn on Anisotropic Filtering. To improve the rendering of textures.
11. Now on the left side, click Start and indicate the installation path of your game, in the game folder click tomb2.exe.

When you want to play the game with upscaled textures, start from the Help.exe application, choose Tomb Raider 2 from the list and click Start.

While I'm not too interested in playing with this mod, I'd love to see what it looks like. Do you have any screenshots?
