Indeed, the captcha really messed things up. Some mobile apps in China started hitting the Waifu2x servers HARD and making a lot of cash off of it, so nagadomi decided to shut down external API requests.
I've shut down the MVFU site now as unfortunately setting it up to do its own...
Well, I'm a contract web developer primarily in my day job :) You're right, neural networks are quite complicated (and very interesting!) -- luckily, I didn't have to dive into that at all. Waifu2x is actually open source, but it relies on GPU processing to work at a decent speed - if you...
The offer is still open if anyone wants to take this project on (hosting it and improving it). Get in touch if you are interested and have server admin experience, and some PHP/MySQL/HTML knowledge.
Ah, excellent sleuthing Cats777. It's definitely a problem with how it merges the alpha channels then. I'll see if I have some time to look into it soon.
In the meantime my earlier offer still stands - if there's anyone who'd like to take over, send me a PM and we can discuss server...
Hm, weirdly that one seems to work fine in my test. :/
My guess is that points to a file format issue - perhaps the colourspace used in the tileset image. Maybe try opening it in GIMP, copying the content into a new 512x512 file and trying that one?
That definitely could've been related. It was something to do with the alpha channel not being combined properly - MVFU actually splits the image out into multiple different images, processes them independently in different ways (nearest neighbour scaling, smoothed bicubic scaling and waifu2x...
Hey GameFire, can you send me the file that you're trying to convert (via PM)? Maybe it's a file-format related issue, or something to do with sizing. Thanks!
Thanks so much for the donation :) I'm glad it has helped you! I really appreciate it!
Weird, I got an email from another user with similar issues. Something must be up with the server.
If I were to open source this, would someone want to host it and take it over? I don't have the time to maintain it or improve it in the way I'd like to.
The tool works by stripping anything that is not referenced in the project database. This can be problematic if your animations are e.g only referenced in scripts. In this case, make sure to add any of those animations to your database.
If all else fails, make a note of which files are being...
I've been busy with other things lately but I'm getting back into working on stuff for my game next month. I think I'm going to fiddle with making NPC busts next, mixing and matching stuff from DLC I've purchased.
