Popular PlayStation 2 emulator PCSX2 has gotten a long-requested feature: texture dumping and replacing. Coming courtesy of Stenzek, who recently brought a Vulkan renderer to the emulator as well, it was officially posted as development build v1.7.2389 on February 24 after being put up as a pull request on GitHub the previous weekend. The new tool will allow users to dump textures from a game so that they can be edited or enhanced. It also lets users replace the dumped textures with custom ones from their system. Answering a question on the GitHub page, Stenzek notes that "high res packs will work as expected," meaning simple fan remasters of PS2 games are now possible by upscaling or redrawing textures.
Stenzek posted an example image, replacing the textures on crates in a Ratchet & Clank game.
