Castle Release

What this release contains:

  • Enhanced environmental textures for the entire Castle section
  • 3D modeling and texture mapping corrections and enhancements for the Castle section
  • Lighting corrections for the Castle section of the game

What you should know before downloading:

  • The total file size is approximately 4.7GB, available for download via Google Drive (2 files to download)
  • This download does not include the Village release (which you can download and install separately) or enhancements of any kind for the Village section
  • The installation is handled via a batch file that moves the original files into a backup folder and the new files into place
  • Please ensure you’ve applied the 4GB patch tool which will alleviate random crashes you may have experienced (more info available here)

Installation instructions:

Fast Version:

  • Generally speaking, the way the automated installation works is that you extract the files from the RAR archive into the base folder for the game, and then you run the “install-castle-release.bat” file
  • Once the script is done running, you’re ready to play the game

Step by Step Version:

  1. Download the 2 parts of the RAR archive file:
    1. Part 1 (2.7 GB)
    2. Part 2 (2 GB)
  2. Open “re4hdproject-castle-release-20170327.part1.rar” and extract the archive into the base folder for the game – for typical Steam installations, the path is: “C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\Resident Evil 4” (Note: this is a multi-part archive, so when you extract this file, it will also extract the remaining content from the second file automatically)
  3. This is what the folder should look like after you’ve extracted the files:
  4. Run the “install-castle-release.bat” file — the script will only take a few moments to complete and you’ll know the script has completed when you see a prompt to “Press any key to continue…”

    (Windows 10 users: you may need to run the “install-castle-release.bat” file from the command line in order for it to work — more information can be found here).
  5. Launch the game and ensure the HD Textures option is selected in the options menu. Enjoy!
