    I think it would be wise to upload it to, cause it’ll be faster upload and download speeds. i got a 2 hour download on a 600kbps, but my broadband is 60 mb, reaching 6 to 7mb in servers such as steam’s and mega. thanx for the work btw, based on your videos it looks great, i’ll give you as much feedback as i can when i finish downloading it 😀

    • Cris says:

      Thanks for the feedback! The limit on the upload speed was truly on my end, though, in this case. 🙂 But yes, the advantages of using another service for hosting these larger files is something we’ll be reviewing and considering. Thanks again!

    • Joseph DeGarmo says:

      Hey Handerson, is it possible for you to upload this on zippyshare or mediafire? I’m still trying to download this and now download speeds are dropping to under 200 kbps and it’s going to take ALL FREAKING WEEK!!! I can download my entire Origin library of about 30 games, including Titanfall, faster than I can download this piece of crap. This is completely unacceptable!!! 🙁

    Downloading now. im SO looking forward to this… thanks a bunch bro. you’re gr8!

  3. Joseph DeGarmo says:

    It would have been nice if I could download this faster considering that I could download games on Origin at over 2.5 Mb/s, but thanks for the upload.

    The mod is working on lion part only
    When I play at ada part (separate ways)
    Nothing changes.

    • albert says:

      Yes, that’s because the game load different pack files for Ada’s scenario. We’ll take care of Ada’s game when we finish Leon’s main game. It will be all copy-paste work except for 2 or 3 Ada’s exclusive areas 😉

      • Alvare says:

        Does this mean, you’ll first re-texture the characters from Leon’s story? (After the environment is done.) 😀

        • albert says:

          I’m not sure about the exact order but most Ada’s stages are identical to Leon’s counterparts and the exclusive stages are not really hard to recreate compared to Leon’s scenario. So all mini games don’t worry me at all for now

  5. Joseph DeGarmo says:

    Hey Cris, can you possibly upload this in 20 parts? I don’t want to leave my PC on for an entire week just to download one file. Download speeds in Origin, Steam, and uPlay are at least 25 times faster; this is ridiculous!!

    • link says:

      chill dude. be greatful. this is the best christmas present i’ll get today. sadly enough, lol

      • Joseph DeGarmo says:

        The problem is that it’s a present that we’ll not receive on Christmas due to the abysmal download speeds. I admire their hard work and the mod looks fantastic and I’m sure I will enjoy it. But it looks like I’m just going to have to cancel the download and wait until next year. I would gladly donate $20 toward the project if they can just upload it to a much faster server. Sorry for the recent comment, but I’m just frustrated.

        • Cris says:

          Hi Joseph! I understand your frustration, especially when we announced it as going live on Christmas day. The good news is that in about 3-4 hours the file will be hosted on a and I will update the link.

  6. Alvare says:

    It doesn’t take that long. I do recommend you guys to make it a torrent file next time. ;-P

    • albert says:

      I think we’ll choose a different download option next time. Let’s see what Cris has to say about this. I guess he must be sleeping now.
      Be patient and… sorry for the inconvenieces! We really hope you all enjoy it 🙂 Even Joseph 😛

      Merry Christmas! / Happy Dec, 25th! (for those who don’t celebrate it)

      • Joseph DeGarmo says:

        Merry Christmas! It’s unfortunate that this is a lost Christmas present, but I’ll cash in on a great deal on Origin. But thanks, anyway.

  7. Cris says:

    Hi Everyone, and merry Christmas! Working on addressing the slow download speeds right now. Thank you for your patience!

    • TomD says:

      This message is for Chris and Albert and anyone else responsible for this texture mod. I want to thank you all personally for the amazing job you have done it is incredible. As a long time fan of this game you have no idea how it makes me feel to see this mod of yours and all the hard work that went into it. You have my deepest respect and I truly hope that some one at Capcom sees what you did that they could not or would not. You guys are amazing and I only wish the best for you now and in the future. … Thank you guys for all your hard work its amazing tell me where to donate as I have to donate to you for this seriously it is worth it to me. Merry Xmas to all on here.

    A person like you could never do such a work like these guys made. or any kind of work actualy..
    Now while downloading you can always go help your mother by making your bed and trying to prepare the meal

  9. Re6joke says:

    Cris and Albert you are the bests texture modder on the internet !

  10. Luke Johnson says:

    Thank you!!!! It is so cool that you guys are doing this and sticking with it.

    Is this going to be the textures for the weapons in the main game and ada’s part?

    i beat the village section and i experienced no crashes, HOWEVER, what i did notice was that there were more “slow downs” than usual. It happened in the scenes where they had a lot of rain happening. after the lake boss fight and in the village after that scene when the rain was still pouring. that’s all really. I took a bunch of screen shots, and what i realized was that in the same cut scene, that i took a couple screen shots, the audio and video weren’t in sync. This was because whenever i pressed F12, the video would pause for less than a sec… if i took no screen shots, this wasn’t the case. It’s a non-issue, but i thought i should tell you. I think it might be a steam issue.

    I was in awe the entire time with the environmental textures. it looked so real. I can’t wait for you to be completed with the entire game. I’m so excited!!!! Thank you so much for this release. Merry Christmas!

    • RE4Fan says:

      I think with the game engine everything is tied very close to the frame-rate. If your set to 60fps try dropping to 30, or sacrifice some other graphics setting in favour of texture goodness!

    • albert says:

      Hello link!
      We don’t know what textures we’ll use for ingame weapons. I guess we’ll use Higher resolution images.

      About the crashes issue. I copy-paste this again: (maybe it works also for performance issues, so feel fre to use it and check it in those rainy areas;))

      People who is having crash issues, please could you try using this tool? :
      And the file you need to patch is:
      C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Resident Evil 4\Bin32\bio4.exe
      It will create automatically a backup file, so original bio4.exe won’t be lost.
      If it’s a good solution we’ll create a post announcing this tool solves the crashes issue 😉 We are testing it and a few people experienced no crashes after patching bio4.exe with this tool.

      «This very little tool patches x86 executables in order to let them have 4GB (instead of only 2) of virtual memory on x64 platforms. This tool comes very handy for applications which need a great amount of virtual memory like games, 3D renderization, multimedia etc.»

    I specify that download is a bit slow for me too but really dont care. even if the download fail. you guys have done so much effort already. merry chrismas to both of you.

  13. RE4Fan says:

    Hey thanks for the release, can’t wait, and i can’t believe the work you guys have put in! insane 😀

    As far as people complaining about getting something for free, considering the countless hours of work, really? get a grip.

    Maybe someone with a fast upload could re-up to mega?

    -anyway thanks and Merry Christmas

    Outstanding work, you guys made the game 10 times better. The attention to detail in every texture is very impressive. Seriously thanks a lot for sharing this and may the force be with you, always.
