Tools for working with neural network-enhanced video game textures.
texpackhelper is designed to solve a set of issues that come from
using neural networks for creating high-resolution video game texture
packs from the original game files.
Using neural networks such as waifu2x is becomming a popular way to
breath new life into older games by upscaling those textures so that
they look much better at higher resolutions. This process isn't perfect,
however, and could benefit from additional automation.
Enable snaps on Linux Mint and install texpackhelper
Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.
Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.
Snap is available for Linux Mint 18.2 (Sonya), Linux Mint 18.3 (Sylvia), and the latest releases, Linux Mint 19 (Tara), Linux Mint 19.1 (Tessa), Linux Mint 19.2 (Tina) and Linux Mint 19.3 (Tricia).
You can find out which version of Linux Mint you’re running by opening System info from the Preferences menu. To install snap from the Software Manager application, search for snapd and click Install.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either restart your machine, or log out and in again, to complete the installation.
To install texpackhelper, simply use the following command:
