  1. I had the same issue with installing the game from retail DVDs two years ago. I ended up using Phoenix 1.5 rc2 to extract SID files on the disks. Then started to download the game on Steam, and put the game files in created folder in Steamapps and verified them.

    But if you have a decent Internet connection, it's enough to just redeem the code printed on the back of the instruction and download the game peacefully from Steam if you've just received a new box version of the game.

    for less precise, but more complex results just search for "texture" instead of "upscale" but I'm aware we search for upscales instead of simply HD texture packs.

     

    I'd rather focus on creating a list of just PC upscales, because it's much harder to make such mod for games with DX8 and lower because there is no universal dumper/injector like TexMod and it requires messing with game archives, sometimes patching executables to override 4GB memory limit (not always universal 4GB patcher is enough). And also be aware that Glide has limitation of 256px for textures, so it's not possible to make any mod for this API with visible changes (it was tested with e.g. Rayman 2 which has also DX8 renderer).

    The amount of HD Tex mods for other platforms is huge already, texture dumping and injecting is much easier if emulator provides such ability.

    For example, visit Gaming Revived:

    There are new packs constantly posted.

    You need to Google for the game code/hask to get the game's name, or simply search by the specific game code. Proper region code needed.

    There are already hundreds of upscales for console versions out there. Making a list of it might be pointless. So I guess it's better to focus on PC upscales. Or with an exception of PS2 mods, since they're in minority since not long time ago there was no official support for texture injecting/dumping in PCSX2, and someone wrote plugin for older PCSX2 version, but it can be officially taken down already.

  3. When I try to change Creative forum's link into archive.org (because whole forum is taken down permanently), it shows reCAPTCHA all the time when I click save button.


    Here is an example:

    Additionally, I had similar issue before, without archive.org, but with many links posted in discussion page.

    I needed to write the whole response on Google Docs, then short the link, and delete https and spread the link to avoid it being detected (though blocking goo.gl seems to be a good thing, though docs.google.com link not really)

    This is the response which couldn't go through:
