My friend and I made a petition to get Activision and Toys for Bob to make an HD remaster of Skylanders: Spyro's adventure. We both played it growing up, and it's our favorite Skylanders game. Here it is if you want to sign it: https://www.change.org/p/activ...ure-hd-remaster

Oh... I played on the Wii... Still, a remaster on current gen consoles would still be cool.

i would give it a few more years. honestly, i think acti/tfb are trying to take spyro out of a sinking ship.

dont take this personally, but skylanders is kinda of dying, along with the toys to life genre.

Oh I know it's dying. I just really liked Spyro's Adventure. I personally don't like any of the games after Swap Force, and I like Spyro's Adventure WAY more than Giants and Swap Force. Honestly I don't expect this petition to go anywhere, I just made it to for fun and to see how many signatures I could get.

its just to early for anything new skylanders right now... but if the new spyro trilogy do good i can see a remake of skylanders spyro adventure happen. but this time there will be no figures to buy and you will start with spyro and unlock the other characters as you play. the dlc will be included and i can even see they change spyro to look like the spyro in the new spyro trilogy remake... its gonna be all good.

3 people have signed this far....
Can't wait for a remake, mis skylanders
A remake of both spyros adventure and giants would be nice.
All games playable on one system. Those 2 games are the only reason I still have the ps3

I tried to make a HD (5x original) texture for Warnado and his official one is just so good and the game in general looks so, so good from having fixed camera angles and how tightly it loads graphics (using Dolphin freelook to see what's loaded, it reminds me of PSX Crash, very much, particularly in Goo Factory). I don't often see muddiness in these textures, the art is incredible and for a Wii game (nevermind the one with NFC toys) the technical prowess is amazing.

On official hardware the FPS sucks but the resolution turns out surprisingly good on TV but everything that needs to shine through still does strongly but whatever.

Playing on Dolphin, you only see texture issues often if you zoom in, which A) you are obviously never meant to do B) is unpleasant to play with (because the camera tries moving as usual) anyway. The textures of course aren't super HD, but the camera disguises all of their faults and the visuals were very clearly designed around that. Due to the nature of the camera, my attempt at a higher-px texture... made no striking difference in real gameplay.

So it seems worthless to just go for a complete HD texture pack given the effort that making it would require. I guess there are only select textures that would noticeably benefit from a remaster. Unless it's just because I am a 1080p pleb. Or didn't really finish the texture. Or the character textures are already some of the most detailed.

If there were a complete HD texture pack it's probably one of those things where it'd be hard to go back, but the textures in this game are crazy-detailed so that would require tremendous effort to do properly and there's really no demand or scene for it.

Even beyond that, the naming of the texture files is a huge ****ing mess. Mere file management is annoying.
(This may be normal for Dolphin texture dumps, but the point stands.)

I'd love to see it just to see how it looks and how far it can go, I'd love to just explore the world with sharper textures, and there are some designs that could pop more, but it feels like I'm literally the only one who would work on retexturing this game. I have plans for fun retexturings/recolors, but I honestly don't even think I'll distribute them.

If you want to see this game "remastered" in a sense, your best bet genuinely is Dolphin. The visuals hold up incredibly well, honestly. Sadly, bloom effects are emulated inaccurately and ghost when resolution is increased beyond the native output. So someone should make a fix for that. Then if you want to boost it, try to hook in ReShade (although nobody has done this with Skylanders to my knowledge, it should be possible), remaster certain textures, and of course run at higher res and FPS with anti-aliasing and such.

Though unfortunately, the most dated visual aspects (besides certain pieces of shading) are in a few extremely dated models and especially some animations that jitter or such. These have no easy fix I know of. But they aren't awful imo and personally don't bother me at all. I will mention them though.

I weep for how this game got such a terrible HD port. Even gameplaywise. But visually. Look at Quicksilver Vault, it's insultingly bad. It demonstrates many of the issues across the port such as muddied color and deafening VFX. Worse bits of GUI and general flow. Many flourishes missing, all the food is drumsticks, ridiculous amount of gloss. SCREEN TEARING. I believe it's only 720p as well. It's still above-average looking because the original product is so fine though honestly. But as a HD port, it's so ****ing awful.

Alas. T'is why I decry the HD versions as the worse ones.
