  • Hi DT here, I've noticed the last software has made it possible again for users to change their own usernames, but now with a new functionality allowing staff to approve or reject the change as it goes through. This has the potential to save a bit of hassle for everybody; however, in order for it to be worth leaving on it will need to not be abused. I request that all users continue to fulfill the general expectation of only requesting a new handle very occasionally, e.g. to fit in line with what they now use in most other places. The next while-ish will be treated as a trial period to gauge whether or not to keep it this way or change it back again (again).

I applied the 4xXBRZ filter to all the sprites.
The filter was applied in blocks of 16x16 pixels, instead of applying it to the entire spritesheet. This avoid bleeding of pixels from nearby sprites.

You can see the video here if you are interested.

Below are some screenshots of the results.

You can probably put that second screenshot in your original post instead of making another post.

In any case, not bad. It's hard to replicate a human touch, but this is an interesting experiment. Though not quite as detailed, some of the tiles and backgrounds look pretty good, for a machine up-scale. The characters don't look that great, though- they look kinda blocky. That's the kind of thing that it's hard to upscale without really adding some thoughtful detail.

Thanks for your reply. Fixed the screenshots.
Yeah, XBRZ can't add new meaningful pixels. Still looks nice while respecting the original though.
I'm making improvements to how it looks.
