Been trying out a trial version of Perfect Resize to resize the Riven PNG image files.
Results are staggering!
Obviously the file size does increase from around 600k to 23 Meg! But the difference makes it worthwhile...
For 50 bucks this will be money well spent:

Original straight from the game:

Resized to A3 size:

Updated with Perfect Effects 4 'Magic Ocean' effect...

Wow, that is very cool! It kind of gives an idea of what a Riven HD would be like. Thanks for sharing :)

Well, it does open up the prospect of increasing the resolution that it is played in...

Hell, I would gladly process all (nearly 5000) images if I could only get them back into the game to use...
I don't care how long it would take...

The only stumbling block might be how the QT movies would play given that the images would be larger - would they have to be resized as well?

As you can see, although it is not perfect it is still pretty darn good, especially when you consider that it is actually filling in the 'blanks' so to speak using some algorithm or other, remarkable achievement.

Just updated the A3 using Perfect Effects 4 (Free - not time limited or 'trial' but totally free!!!), added 'Magic Ocean' effect - seems to saturate the colours better...
(Whole range of different effects including black/white, sepia, antique plus borders)
