[Release] Catherine Full Body HD 720p Patch
« on: May 06, 2020, 02:20:32 AM »
For the first time ever, we are able to run a retail game for the Playstation Vita/TV rendered at 1280x720.

Video analysis by InquisitionImplied


Installation:

1. Install Catherine Full Body and the latest patch 1.03
2. (optional) Install froidsan's English patch
3. Install the latest version of Sharpscale
4. Turn on "Enable Full HD" in the sharpscale config app
5. Install catherinefb720.suprx under PCSG01179

Code: [Select]
*PCSG01179
ur0:/tai/catherinefb720.suprx

Performance summary:

Make sure you use LOLIcon or lolita444/500. PSVShell will crash if you open the menu while the game is open. Recommend "game def" profile in LOLIcon. Overclocking from 444 to 500 made no difference in performance.

Framerate ranges from 20-30fps with overclocking, with 25-30 in gameplay.

InquisitionImplied has made a detailed spreadsheet comparing performance at different rendering resolutions: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1mxmenN6J5hfegMSFHiAY38kz6GbLzQvGXa1DgWlGMvA/edit#gid=0



I want to thank InquisitionImplied for the excellent video and all the supportive people at CBPS.

This is just an attempt to steal Atlus's hardwork all you did was enable HD.

This a pretty neat patch, I just made an account to say thanks. Do you think this would be possible for a Persona 4 Golden 720p Patch?

The graphics are improved a lot, there's noticeable less aliasing, I wonder if using the NO ASLR plug in would increase performance? even better maybe disabling more system security checks or not essential processes would benefit running games at higher resolutions.

Marbs (cuevavirus) said on Discord while he is not going to make anymore HD patches, he will consider making one for P4G.

I think Marbs has also tried noASLR with Catherine and saw no difference, but perhaps more analysis is needed to see the difference or more work on noASLR needs to be done as it is targeted towards system applications.
