Far Cry 2 - Enhanced Texture Pack
This version only includes enhanced UI (HUD and menu) textures.
This is a texture pack for Far Cry 2 that uses ERSGAN AI upscaling to improve the original textures. My original plan was to increase the resolution of all textures 16x but it turns out Far Cry 2 can't handle a large amount of textures without crashing immediately, so this pack includes a selection of textures with 4x resolution. Notable exceptions that couldn't fit are NPC clothes/faces, most terrain textures and most maps. The road signs have been completely retextured with a 'hand painted' font.
The AI upscaling is not going to make this look like a current-gen game. It serves to smooth out pixelation and remove compression artefacts. Check out the images to see a variety of comparisons. Three versions are available, one with everything, one with just the UI (HUD and menus) and one with everything except three textures commonly used by mods (Vanilla+, Redux, New Dunia).
Installation instructions and the necessary tools are included.

- First upload
- Removed Xbox controller textures as they can't be seen in the pc version.
- Resized HUD weapon images to 1x resolution to fix multiplayer scaling.
- Readded controller buttons for multiplayer use.
- All textures without alpha transparency have been compressed using DXT1. This has significnatly decreased the overall size of the pack, meaning all vehicle and weapon textures can be included with more stability and faster load times.
- The mosquito animation on the main menu has been upscaled.
- Singleplayer map icon resolution has been increased.
- Removed the textures for the notepad page slip animation, there was a visible black outline.
