lol I never actually considered the effect breathing in emperor parasol spores had on the dunmeri psyche.
If you'll notice, it's not just AI making sweeping changes. That's just the first stage. There had to be user input to finish things, and everything can be edited.Look at the banner at 5:25. Not only it stands out less in the room (which goes against the art direction decision of OG devs), but it also is made of different material. Original seems to be made of cloth, remaster made it into the papyrus banner.
Except it *is* human creativity. That's the point of the video. That these are different tools for human modders to bring older games up to modern standards faster.All in all, as expected, this technology fails replacing genuine human creativity.
Humans are applying AI tools. It's AI doing the hard work.Except it *is* human creativity. That's the point of the video. That these are different tools for human modders to bring older games up to modern standards faster.

Ordinarily, I would agree, but this is Morrowind with a better graphics mod, not a rerelease of Morrowind or a sequel with silly streamlining like blunt axes.And fuck modern standards for the most part.
I'm calling you a luddite mockingly, since you're fine with technology streamlining things like communication, but cry about it when it might make modding video games faster, easier and no longer the sole domain of autists.Don't call me a luddite for not being wowed by another tool being made to graphically butcher Morrowind.
1. Virtually every single instance of the "RTX ON" "enhanced" scene shows that everything is covered in shades of yellow and brown, and occasionally orange and other similar colours. This yellowish-brown "filter", because it very obviously amounts to being a filter and nothing else, is so intensive, that it drowns every other colour present. Take a look at the first screenshot for instance: without RTX we have grey floor, brownish walls, red and purple table sheet, white (silvery?) cutlery, light green (azure?) candles, brown and white floor carpet, green (leftmost), brown (left) and brown-red (center) wall tapestries, among other things. And what do we have with "RTX ON"? Almost everything is of brown and yellow coulour, with *sometimes* other colours managing to get through (mostly red in the case of floor carpet). This can be seen in all the other instances and scenes as well. Horrendous.
I thought the change in tonality could be a result of a different lightning model. Like, the lights themselves are coloured yellow (the colour of the flames) and thus by casting them as such in the scene, everything ends up being coloured like that, maybe?
That's the worst part innit? People will look at this and think it's great. Muh rendering, muh detailed textures! And that's it.
Well, congratulations Nvidia! With the resources of a large, successful corporation, and with all the modern advancements in graphical processing, you've managed to create something that looks worse than a game made 20 years ago. Truly an achievement only a complete imbecile can be proud of, which I have no doubt many of modern-day developers, gamers and others are. Otherwise we would have gotten a few Morrowinds by now, but instead here we are incapable of creating something at least on its level and resorting to pitiful attempts at "enhancing" it, failing miserably as expected.
Final verdict: it is shit.
