Final Fantasy VI on the PC may have looked a little blurry but thanks to work being carried out by the community an update has been released in the Steam mod section for the game that should sort it out. Created by Nyxx, the mod should sharpen the sprites.
Are things a bit out of focus in your life? Are you just a bit fuzzy headed? Maybe you’re wondering why things look so gosh darn blurry these days? Well then, this might just be the thing for you! This mod removes the annoying Bilinear filter from the game, giving you those crisp sharp sprites like you remember from the old days! (But probably remember wrong, because CRT TV’s, but who cares!)
Once you have the files downloaded it’s simple to set up:
1. Copy all files contained within the RAR file to your Final Fantasy 6 directory.
2. Run the “Install Bilinear Filter Begone” BAT file from within the rubeus_data directory, then select your option and wait for it to finish processing the files.
3. Once it is finished, close the prompt window and play the game, you’re all good to go!
It may not be completely apparent what has changed but if you read this blog update from Lars Doucet it explains the problem with the PC version of Final Fantasy VI brilliantly with illustrative shots comparing sprites.
Nyxx (Jed Lang) who sorted this FFVI problem also created the Dark Souls Modding Tool.
