Would it be possible to upscale IV, cause i tried it once on Niko's face and effed something up. Just curious if someone did this already.

It's possible but more time consuming, IV is at the point in time when normal maps and spec maps were also being used, so it's not just a simple case of upscaling one texture and that's it, you'd have to also change the normal and spec map to make sure they're also matching otherwise you'd get inconsistency highlights. Also the fact that there's no one model suits all in this process so unlike Vice City and San Andreas for example where people have rushed all the textures through one AI Upscale Model and threw them back into the game.

Not sure if they're going to touch Niko or anything, but there's projects such as revIVe and Liberty Visual which will be upscaling textures for buildings and stuff like that, you can head to their discords here:
