Far Cry 2 - Enhanced Texture Pack

This is a texture pack for Far Cry 2 that uses ERSGAN AI upscaling to improve the original textures. All the textures except decals have been upscaled. Decals weren't excluded becuase the upscaler doesn't play very nicely with transparency. The road signs have been completely retextured with a 'hand painted' font.

The 'Singleplayer Mods' version has the following differences to be compatible with most mods:
- No main menu logo textures.
- No Xianyong Bai character portrait texture.
- No map icons texture.
- Most multiplayer/in-game editor textures removed.
- Extra high resolution weapon icons.

The AI upscaling is not going to make this look like a current-gen game. It serves to smooth out pixelation and remove compression artefacts. Check out the images to see a variety of comparisons.

Installation instructions and the necessary tools are included. Unless you are using the 'UI only' option your .exe must have the 4GB patch applied or the game will crash. I have included pre-patched .exe files and the instructions also explain how you can do the patch yourself.

7-Zip is required to unpack the files.


If you report any bugged textures I can only fix them if you send me a save or a screenshot of the map where I can find them.



Thanks to:
Alsa (ERSGAN models bc1 sharp 3.0 and Misc)
Mutin Choler (ERSGAN model BCGone_Detailed)
RealArmanIII (FCBConverter was updated with subfolder support which saved a lot of time with texture conversion)

Models used:
HUD and 'hand drawn' textures - BCGone_Detailed and Misc
Everything else - bc1 sharp 3.0 and Misc


I give open permission for anyone to use these files for any purpose, if you could please credit me as the original creator.
