    [Release] Thief 2 30 & 60 FPS Video Pack [ESRGAN & DAIN improved]

    All Thief 2 cutscenes were processed through multiple ESRGAN models followed by some manual editing. Then, the FPS was improved from 15 to 30, then 30 to 60.

    *Note*
    Make sure to watch all videos in at least 720p, otherwise you won't see a significant difference.

    Trailer:


    This has now been uploaded to the following sites:
    MODDB
    Nexus Mods

    Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/ypscsg..._Pack.zip/file
    File size: 4.08 GB

    The best results are seen in the B16, CS05, CS10, CS16 and INTRO videos.

    Here's a comparison against multiple original clips with the ESRGAN & DAIN improved version.


    YouTube videos were formatted to fit the 16:9 resolution, but the videos to download are in their standard 4:3 AVI format. I have personally tested all of them and verified they work in game without issue.

    In-game example:


    **INSTALLATION**
    Backup original video files.
    Copy and paste into MOVIES folder.

    There is a CREDITS V2 video. This has a different, royalty-free song that I felt fit better. If you want to use it, delete the V2 from the name and replace the original.


    Thanks (credits)
    Akven for getting me started with ESRGAN.
    Child of Karras and musictaffer for improving the audio.

    This is some excellent work! Don't you want to make a release on ModDB as an addition to the whole ESRGAN pack?

    What codec did you use for video?

    Yeah, once I finish uploading all of the videos to YouTube I figured I would release it on ModDB & The Nexus.

    Used the included H.264 codec in Adobe Premiere. I can give a much more detailed break down of how everything was processed in a message if you'd like.

    Pretty impressive! Do you plan to do Thief Gold cutscenes/briefings, too?

    So cool! Thanks for doing them.
    Every time I see the mission briefing for T2 and hearing the audio for it, including ambience, it sure takes me briefly back to my first days of playing Thief. Hope I never forget that feeling
