Resident Evil 4 With High-Definition Textures? See It In Action

If you haven't been keeping tabs on the fan high-definition retexturing of Capcom's Resident Evil 4, well, you're in for a treat. If you hit up the project's website, you'll see the makers are producing regular footage of their work.

Yep, it's looking good alright. While there isn't much they can do with the complexity of the models or animations, it is quite amazing what a new coat of virtual paint can do. How much creepier is the lab with super-crisp textures?

In terms of progress, the project is about 50 per cent complete — you can see an area-by-area breakdown here. There aren't any new downloads since we last checked in, but the Village retexture is still there, if you want to grab it.

    Wow, that looks incredible. Cannot wait to see it completed.

    This is one of those games I still need to play.

      It had been out for quite a while before I played it, but I'm glad I did! so awesome!
      Get on it! :D

      Two thirds of the game is an escort quest and it isn't even bad.

    This temps me to buy gaming pc. Prob is I've never used pc to game and am completely noob when it comes to knowing how to build.

      You'd be surprised how easy it is now. I just built my first PC a few months ago. Parts are really modular now, so it's really a case of plug & play.
      The hardest part is choosing all the pieces, but with a little research it becomes really easy. You just need to make sure that you get the right CPU for the motherboard and get the correct RAM as well (either DDR3 or DDR4 depending on the motherboard. Everything else is rather straight-forward.
      It may seem daunting at first, but believe me after you've done it once you actually want to do it again.
      EDIT: Also, companies like PC Case Gear and such actually offer pre-assembled computers at really good prices. So if you'd rather have a pro build it for you and then have an extended warranty on it for piece-of-mind, then it is now a very valid option as well.

      Bang for buck is the way to go.

      For example: unless you have loads of money to spare (or a specific reason), don't bother buying an $800-900 video card - just get a the current 'sweet spot' card and then in one-two-three years when required, replace it with a new 'sweet spot' card - I've splurged in the past and always felt it was a waste of money.

      The only reason I'd consider a more expensive card currently, is for the higher video memory, not for the higher performance.

      Also, if you're looking at cheaper motherboards, i'd do research about the on-board sound; for sound quality in particular, as electronic noise is pretty common. However I've also encountered stutter due to odd things like torrents hammering your network adapter causing latency issues. I plan to buy a separate sound card at some point (though I'd still research them for similar issues).

      For now, my 4 year old mid range (at the time) PC still does ok - my main issue is not enough video memory! :(

      Its a little daunting at first but its really not that hard. Just do a bit of research to make sure your parts are compatible. For me the i think the hardest part is the finishes like cable management and making it look good. The rest is easy.

      That said if your that concerned there are many places where you can pick the parts and pay $80-100 and they will put it together for you.

        Thanks for all the advice everyone :)

      PC gaming is just expensive lego for grownups. Computers are so easy to build nowadays and they are really cost effective now.
      You should jump on in.

    According to my memory this is exactly how it looked already :P
