About this mod

Replaces many of the game's images to higher resolution ones, giving it an HD feel. Mostly HUD images, although I also changed some details like lens flare and some images used in attacks.

CHANGE IN THE INSTALL PROCEDURE ON GRANDIA II HD EDITION!

In the HD Edition of this game (released on October/2019), the "data" folder was moved from the root directory to a folder called "content". I changed the "How to install" section below to reflect that.

-- How to install--

1 - Make a backup of your "[Grandia 2 root folder]]\content\data\afs" folder. This mod will overwrite many files in there and you should keep a backup to make it possible to undo everything.
2 - Copy the "data" folder inside this zip to your Grandia 2 folder. E.g.: "C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Grandia II Anniversary Edition\content".

- This is a work in progress, so lots of things are still unchanged.
- If this mod makes your game crash or cause other graphical glitches, please let me know.
- I put jpg files that show what each dds file changes, so you can choose which ones to use if you don't want to use all of them.
- All the changed textures are basically 4 times bigger (e.g.: 256x256 to 512x512) so I don't know how this changed minimum and recommended PC settings.
- I try to find fonts that closely resemble the original ones, but they're not the same.
- The main font of the game, used for many UI stuff and even speech text, is a whole different beast to tame. I don't think I have enough skills to change it.
- Tried changing portraits, but the game doesn't handle it well and stops showing them.
- I'm not an artist, so some things may look strange while other things I'll never even change, but I try my best.
