Hello! This is my 4K texture pack page for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds!
Some general info regarding this texture pack which you should read before you download it;
There are ~8800 textures in total in the game (I have tried to dump every single one, however I may have missed a few). Out of these textures a few hundred have been completely re-textured, including all text and the user interface. Some other textures have been been up-scaled using A.I upscaling. Some filtered textures have been modified or changed entirely to look better as well. Some textures remain completely untouched until I've worked on them since some textures look bad when upscaled.
I am completely up for suggestions, changes and submissions. You will of course be fully credited for any work you submit.
The 4K version of the texture pack is scaled to 8x the default resolution, this means that (if internal resolution is increased in Citra) you may be able to view some textures at a staggering 6832x3480 resolution! The 1080p version is scaled to 4x the default resolution, which results to slightly above 1080p.
My goal with this texture pack is to enhance the original game visuals while staying faithful to the original vision. That means my textures are meant to blend in as much as possible with the old textures so the game feel doesn't change.
This texture pack will work with any custom mods / hacks of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds as long as they aren't adding new textures or changing old ones (in that case, conflicting textures will be overwritten by one another but it will still work).
A custom preset version of the Citra Emulator is included with the texture pack to make the setup as easy and painless as possible (starts in seconds!)
It works on Windows, MacOS, Linux and Android! A fast hard drive, like a M.2 SSD, is recommended to reduce stuttering when loading in new textures.
Currently, only NTCS and PAL textures have been modified. You can still use this texture pack on Japanense / Korean versions of the game in Citra, it will still work. This will not include the Jap/Kor region specific textures though.
If you don't like the way my texture pack looks over the original version, please note that all post processing can be modified easily from user to user to fit your own preference, you can make it look however you like. Press the "HOME" key on your keyboard while in-game to open the ReShade menu, where you can edit the post processing to your heart's content!
(Please watch in 2160p (4K), 60 FPS for the best experience!)
There is no installation! A custom version of the Citra Emulator is provided alongside the texture pack. Simply extract the folder somewhere on your PC (preferably on your fastest hard drive) and start Citra using "Zelda ALBW 4K.exe". If you're on Mac or Linux, please manually download Citra Canary from this page for your operating system and copy all the folders from the texture pack over to your default Citra directory.
If you want, become a Patron to support the continued development of the texture packs and get all my texture pack updates two weeks early, as well as access to other benefits like personal 24/7 support, beta features, 4K 60 FPS video backgrounds, orchestrated music and more!
Fixed several minor issues, including the texture pack not loading on the European (PAL) version of the game.
