    Because not whole game was tested.

    Tools used:
    List

    It's not a full experience bringed by original Moguri Mod.

    Why?
    - High resolution backgrounds were downscaled 4x to match Switch textures
    - There is no support for Memoria enhancements like shaders.
    - Author of original mod was not involved in making this port (so don't send him messages that something is not working from this topic).

    Here you will find only field background textures.
    They are taking whole 9 bin files, so if more mods will come to FF IX for Switch, they will be compatible with this mod if they will not touch field backgrounds (s1data11.bin - s1data19.bin).
    It's compatible with all CFWs.

    Issues:
    Knowing them your eyes can attempt to catch them unwillingly, so if you are fine with ruining beginning of your game - go on :D

    Thank you so much for this mod! Looks amazing on the switches little screen despite the resolution downscale!
    Is there any way yet of making the game run in fullscreen instead of the crappy 4:20 resolution?

    Real 16:9 - not possible
    Stretched 16:9 - without external plugin looks not possible

    Omg, I was tried to port Moguri mod but nothing come to and end. All i could do is extract the texturea but it was so difference to the PC textures. So I gave up on it for a long long time and waiting for a savior like u .
    Thanks so much for the great works :x

    1. Did you restarted console?
    2. Give me exact localization for one of .bin files in your sdcard.

    It's SXOS\titles\01007EF00B094000\romfs\Data\StreamingAssets
    My Skyrim mods still work flawless when I put it on SXOS\titles\....
    And I already checked my FF9 version title key, it's the same as ur mod.
    Edit: After restart my switch, it worked, thank you so much :D

    This is a very cool mod but there are is noticeable compression artefacts and black pixelated lines around objects, don't know if this is part of the up-scaling process but could it be improved?

    Either way still glad you made this as they're much better than the original backgrounds

    They are not compression artifacts. They are ESRGAN artifacts. You can see them even in original mod with disabled ReShade.
    Lines are because of downscaling. I used bicubic scaler, but it looks like it's not perfect. Maybe bilinear will be better...

    Yes I see what you mean after looking at the original. Just out of interest would it be possible to use the same method on the upscaled backgrounds for FFVII?

    It's called remako mod and modders can't use anything as backgrounds because editing them on Switch version make them broken. I don't know the details

    And about the same method - no. FF VII is different than IX. VII uses prioprietary format for Textures, when IX uses UnityFS archives for textures.
