    Nvidia showed an amazing technology that could soon become a standard modding tool.
    NVIDIA RTX Remix allows you to improve the graphic design of older games/productions.

    Artificial intelligence "takes on" the ambitious task of remastering games. A great tool to automate and speed up the process of updating the graphic designs of old classic games. From now on, remastering old titles will be much easier. Nvidia RTX Remix can update the graphics of older works almost automatically. This is good news for modders.

    This change could come as a major relief for fans as they won't need to buy the remastered version of the two games but rather, simply use the mods created with the NVIDIA RTX Remix tool, which was announced earlier at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) September 2022 event. The tool allows the creation of mods that enable the presence of features like Ray Tracing in older games.

    If they did this for Doom 1-3, Half Life and source, Duke Nukem, and other old school games, I would really consider RTX NOW.

    Imagine old Dead Space series, Resident Evil PSX on emulators running with pure RTRT!

    Yeh, I love old school gaming aesthetics even more than new...

    Giants - Citizen Kabuto RT yes please. The game looks like it was designed for RT.

    Messed around with like 15 games, but only got to see actual game with C&C: Renegade. And even that looked quite messy. But it's nice getting a glimpse of what path tracing does to a scene.

    Do you still need to play through the entire game to have all textures ?

    I have no idea about that, i'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to this stuff.

    Was just trying out games, i don't have any modding skills.

    In my memory Stalker's textures looked better, but yeah like i said that is just in my memory , it could have been much worse LOL
    I do think the glove looks sharper as well.
    would be nice to have comparison screenshots. https://imgsli.com/ is a nice website for that might anyone wonder.

    Tested almost 30 games, and only Renegade was partially playable.

    Worst part is needing windowed mode, that's already a giant pain in the neck for DX7 and 8 games.

    This is all just very VERY early stages. Much more will be possible when the actual tools are being released.

    Ohh I see, well making it open source will hopefully decrease development time.

    People are hammering RTX Remix that's for sure, one game after the other shows up on the official discord.

    Nvidia engineers also follow that discord closely.

    So far the games i seen come by on the official discord with serious progress.

    • Colin McRae Rally 4
    • Manhunt
    • Mafia
    • Stalker
    • Half-Life 2
    • UT 2004
    • Day of Defeat
    • Gmod
    Which is impressive, since the proper modding tools arn't even out yet, this is just the runtime... ReShade like if you will.

    Remix only supports games from before 2004, so don't get your hopes up.

    This morning i messed around with Carmageddon II: Carpocalypse Now. nGlide converts Glide to DirectX 9 and then Remix makes it Vulkan. Sadly i couldn't make anything but the menu background show up. But it's impressive it hooks Remix.

    This was just posted, F1 Challenge 99-01.

    Every game still lacks the ability to have proper materials so expect reflective surfaces on everything. That can't be fixed until the official modding tools come out.

    For just playing games i prefer dgVoodoo, as it has more customization.

    For someone who's not tech savvy nGlide is easier.
