I'm planning to replace original textures with ones which I'll find in GTA3 (PC/Xbox/Mobile) in higher resolution, make HQ hud and fonts

I dont want a bunch of different alpha/beta versions floating around. Only one release

PS2 or some better textures, plus HD fonts and HUD would be good enough.

 

Do you think is possible to change draw distance values?

If you're waiting until that, then for VCS you might want to help us out, the knackers method has a lot of dupes and repeating textures and they do not have names, for VCS PC we've currently crunched down on this and got a massive chunk of them named.

Draw distance in LCS and VCS restricted in LVZ/DTZ map to how many placement matrices contains each sector. So you can increase draw distance only by adding more placement matrices and rebuilding world sectors. But since this mod has ported ps2 map without changes - draw distance will be like on ps2.

Here comparison:

That's pretty good! Combine with better textures will be perfect.

Its very interesting how you can convert the ps2 stuff to the psp version and have it work so well. Im looking forward to seeing this completed.

 Yeah. I've tried to update textures on original PSP version of LCS long time ago.

Here few screenshots from this old lost mod:

1. Unused stuff remains unused.

2. No. I can't use same trick with trails like in Vice City PC. Timecyc on PSP also has Trails fields missing

No they don't? The timecyc for stories games actually have additional values compared to previous games. The blurRGB value is present throughout.

there are multiple effects at play here. Both LCS and VCS have some kind of colour filter, on PSP and PS2, but they way they work is different. VCS on PS2 has in addition something like PS2 SA's radiosity and that effect has two additional values in the timecycle. I don't think i ever looked at the PSP timecycle, but i'm pretty sure it's missing those two.

Now this, this is a unique modification. Even though it's for PSP. Great work on the mod, Majestic! Love it:^:.

Nice find!

I figured this out for LCS originally and just applied the same thing to the VCS data after removing the 4 PS2-only fields:

# adjust emissive
for i in range(192*3*2, 192*3*3):
	data[i] = int(data[i]/1.22/2)
# adjust dir a bit, not accurately
for i in range(192*3*4, 192*3*5):
	data[i] = int(data[i]/2)
# remove postfx, doesn't work the same way on ps2
for i in range(192*47, 192*50):
	data[i] = 0

Seems to be same changes should be applied to other sections and even to blur section in LCS, some funcs like gamma correction maybe needed instead of linear scaling. Car shadows are too dark, lighting not so accurate, only sky seems to looks similar. I'll start to dig this up after updating HQ textures

Would be possible to take sections like that from PSP and just use PS2 for ambient and sky. I didn't get too deep into it, just wanted to make the PSP versions looks a bit better because imo the PSP timecycle is horrible (in both games).

Yes it will. I've contacted PPSSPP developers and they told me how to make it compatible not only with old versions of emulator. But this mod will NOT can be played on PSP. Not sure about PS Vita

Finally PS2 version without the massive FPS drops.

Okay, firstly, I'd like to say that this mod is absolutely amazing! I can't wait to see a release. What I'd like to ask is, is it possible in the future to make the HUD more PS2-like for LCS and VCS (rectangle health and armor bars in LCS and way smaller in both LCS and VCS)? It takes a while to get used to the large HUD coming off the widescreen fixes released for previous 3D Universe titles.

Few comparison screens between original PSP and ported PS2 with GTA3 textures (which in most cases have double size compared to LCS PS2 ones). Radar is f*cked I know.

Nice. Now you only need to replace fonts and HUD with HD ones and change it size and it's done.

There are TOO MANY textures to be matched and replaced. For now I have only Portland 60-70% finished
