Daytona USA, 1994-2019: The king of arcade racing is 25 years old!

This is a HD texture pack for use with Elsemi's MODEL 2 emulator.

Still a WIP, the goal is to retexturize everything in the game, fully respecting the original...

sometimes I want to retexturize all the games of model 2, then I remember the work that is and I'm going the way. Exellent work here

Thanks a lot.
My very first intention was only to add a Sonic to your textures pack. Then another texture, then one more, then 480 more :D
I've also thought about retexturizing all the games but like you say it's about 6-7 months of intensive use of Photoshop per game (on my side).
45 hours/week job + children here ! :)
But after a pause, I'll be interested by having a look at Sega Rally or Indy 500 (prefered)...

no time frame (love for these games sega model 2 is not in a hurry)

After a few requests (pm, contacts on different sites), the next one will be Sega Rally Championship...

Really don't know if the pack has been appreciated here  ;)

A few fans have requested the Casino elements in the Beginner course, I don't really know why I changed them (I love SegaSaturn).
That's done !



Same thing for the dice...

I'll still apply the SegaSaturn & Rubik's Cube textures on the "Daytona USA Saturn Adds" rom.



I'll update my download links soon !

New (big) fans request : Redo the textures for the Hornet Car (Hornet + Bee + Gallop Racing) to allow the Model 2 to colorize them itself.

With the blue car HORNET is green and the bee is yellow, with the yellow car HORNET becomes blue and the bee green, etc...

In link mode all those colors change again depending on the driven car.

... W.I.P. (creating these HD textures from scratch in negative black & white)...

I've been following this and I really like it. 

Don't you think it'd get more attention in the driving and racing forum?

Maybe... I know it's followed despite the... silence :)

But if a staff member thinks it's better to move the topic to a more appropriate place, why not ?

Looking good.  I wonder how much could be upscaled on the gun games.... I can't remember how much of those games are sprite work and how much is actual textures.

Sure, Hotd, it's one of my favorite games.
but ... my textures are not so elaborate (there are many if you have to "improve" all the games of the model 2) years you can take

Cool I didn't know you started HODT. Good surprise!
But I agree with you... Years of work...

I've been now on Daytona for 9 months (during free time of course) and as i's according to me one of the easiest project... :)

Since it's so easy, start with another game. It was easy for you because you took the textures that I left. try another game from scratch .. we'll see if it's easy .. model 2 and 3 are never going to be easy (they are systems ahead of their time)

OK, this is the story of my pack :

Yes ! your mod and pat file were my inspiration, it was a awesome job (and still is). I was mad when I discovered it :)
Initially I just wanted to place a Sonic in the beginner course you made and nothing else.

After that I have started to change your textures one by one because I didn't really recognise the original Daytona (sorry) and wanted each track to have it's own original visual, with more color, true Sega style.
You have replaced about 200 textures.
As your textures were clear enough to be identified, it was an easy task to guess where the texture would be applied (just a replacement job but a big graphic edition job).

Then I started to add more and more textures over your 200 (from scratch) using the Dump Texture Cache option.
When I had a problem to identify a texture, I painted it in green and looked for the green texture ingame, a good search method. No difficulty here but time consuming, no hacking skill as Elsemi has given the tool.
I have also cared about the textures size to make sure the pack could be launched on smaller configurations and avoid aliasing at some point, and to shorten the loading time.

The pack has now more than 480 textures, all mine (I'm finishing the flags in advance circuit, no more country flags I kept from you but the original ones redrawn).
If it's long it's because the textures are all edited/transformed manually (if originally a picture from internet), or created from scratch. I draw and I love it. There's no random in what you'll see onscreen.
I have also completely rewritten a clear pat file to allow other people to easily identify all the textures, as I like to share and help.

I came late on a project. Gamespek forum was already closed so no support.
I absolutely didn't want to compete or steal anything, but everything has a starting point, you have been mine and everybody knows it  ;)
To this day I can learn things very easily, just have to be intested...

(No conflict, I respectfully still make friends discover Nuexzz's Daytona USA ++) We all here have the same goal : share a passion.

  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Great work Nuexzz and stf999!
When will be available the next version of the textures, stf999?

(I can read... "new texture done"... "no country flags now"...
Are you constantly updating the downloadable textures pack in the post number 1?
Or will you announce a new updated version, and upadate later?)

Really GREAT WORK!!
Best regards!

Hi Ali !

I won't update the download links until I reach my goal which is now to deliver a 100% (let's say 98%) respectful Daytona.

This takes time because I actually draw 100% from scratch with Photoshop (no good material available anywhere for the 60 textures I've had to redo + I wanted a 100% accurate HD Hornet).
I also used a dozen of textures from Nuexzz in my first pack. I've had to replace them to make my pack 100% exclusive.

I post a pic from time to time as I know a few players/drawers following the topic, and for the people interested here.
I will announce the final pack and will update the 1st post when it's all done.

Thanks to you.

---------------------------------------------

Stickers redrawn from scratch, based on the original material provided by AxelDragani (I wasn't able to read the Road Thunder logo from screenshots before).

A few pics of some of the last changes :

The rails + The animated board (with these animated beautiful eyes), the Hornet textures + dashboard resized


The sails + rails + road borders


Removed the "Dinosaur Canyon" posters + redone the mountain. (made all my walls & mountains textures seamless without artefacts)


Resized & replaced the textures, I had a bug here in the released version...


The tunnel now looks like the original


A few changes in the office + road borders


The original message from AM2 (used & painted a superb font : Peinture fraiche by Qkila)


The posters & the boat


Redone since the last release :

- All the Hornet HD textures + Stickers + Dasboard
- All the original boards/posters/flags in HD (all circuits)
- The casino elements + the trees in the background (Beginner circuit)
- Circuit Selection icons
- GAME OVER & GOAL letters
- The boats
- Graffitis in Expert circuit "You Can't Be Satisfied Without It... SEGA Model 2"
- Accurate road borders (all circuits)
- Walls & mountains textures to make them perfectly seamless
- Tunnel in advanced circuit

A little more to do but I'm close to the end (respectful HD pack)
Of course I'll say when I release it !!

All the textures are created.

I'm now polishing the delails, it makes a difference even if a player doesn't pay attention during a race...
