November 24, 2018 update.

Probably the most impressive retexture project existed.

Resident Evil 4 HD Project | The Complete HD Remaster of Resident Evil 4

NOTICE: The colour and lighting differences are a consequence of the lighting edits we’ve done all over the game areas and it’s not related to the characters’ remastering process
  • “Policías”: I’ve re-created their faces and clothes and I’ve adjusted the oldest policeman shirt collar to avoid some clipping issues. It seems the developers used the same exact model for both policemen. They just made the oldest one slightly fatter, but they didn’t take into consideration his neck is also thicker.
  • Female Ganados: I’ve done the same I did with the male Ganados: All new textures and minor 3D adjustments. I also remastered all the Ganados ears (I simply used the cutscene head models), adjusted the back of their neck seam issues and revised some previously remastered texture (the hair of the dead ganado in the image gallery bellow is an example)
  • Animals: Nothing really impressive here. I simply retextured the animals. I replaced the ingame dog model with the slightly more detailed dog model from the “El Gigante” cutscene and I improved the cows’ ear and horn models.
  • Leon’s jacket: I’ve added more polygons to its shoulder and arms. The improvement is really noticeable!
  • Chapter 1 End Screen Background image: This is my favourite. I really like the results and it’s really entertaining to re-create this kind of static images!

  3. All animals are also remastered (cows, crows, dogs, spiders, bats)
  4. All weapons and items are fully remastered (in the inventory, in-game and examine view)

A lot of comparison shots on their site for Chapter 1 of the game, here's a few I downloaded:


They've also uploaded 2 more videos for the Chapter 1-2 and 1-3 playthroughs with commentary, they're worth a watch:

I've been too lazy to update this thread... but here's a good update, sounds like release could be near:

New post from re4hd.com

Conclusion: I’ll start studying a 2-year course of “3D animation, games and interactive applications” yoohoo!!! And I’ll start this next Monday!

So, I’ll be a bit stressed until December (when my current job ends). It’s a good thing this is happening just when the re4 HD project is almost finished. Perfect timing! I hope I can finally share with you the 1.0 release of the project as a Christmas gift, hehe
The FMV upscaling is impressive work:





The main reason is the amount of hours of work I put into the remastered prerendered videos. The results you’ll see in the video are a combination of several remastering methods: AI upscaling, some simple animations fully re-created, stage background completely remastered, some frame by frame edits, combined AI upscaling methods (some adjustments have better results for clothes and aliased borders and some others are better for faces), lighting and effect adjustments applied directly on After Effects…

This looks mighty impressive. I would probably play it again if I did not buy RE4 on Oculus Quest 2.

The work they have been doing is very impressive and shows how much love they have towards RE4

Really excited that this is finally releasing. Wish he put out more incremental patches rather than having huge gaps between releases, but the results are really impressive.
