Honestly? No idea when I'll get back to it.

I was banned from Forge Discord for criticizing lack of progress, refusal to fix notoriously reported issues, followed by countless excuses and general lack of active development (as in new and long-requested features, major UI improvements/overhauls, not just slowly pushing expansions).

Expecting active technical support from devs for people just like me, who create things for entire community and try to improve visual aspects of Forge wasn't be well received either. They wanted to discourage people from participating? Well, they succeeded!

At the very least I'll try to make a release with all the new stuff before the end of the year for the sake of my fellow Standard Brewers.

Very sad news indeed, the least I can say is that I really appreciate your work, using a mix of your HQ pictures and kevlahnota's SLQ sets. Hope to hear news from you soon! Until then, my thanks and best regards.

You were probably banned for harassing people and generally being a jerk. Not being able to be honest about it after multiple people have a problem with how you deal with things, and then acting like everyone else was the problem is ... something. You realize the same people are here as well as on Discord, don't you?

Since I'm not going to dignify the nonsense above with a response... let's get straight to the GOOD STUFF!
And there's PLENTY OF GOOD STUFF!!
A total of 26 SETS have been uploaded today!!!

Every new major set, up to and including Phyrexia All Will Be One is now available in gorgeous AI-Upscaled High Quality and High Resolution.
Everything in this update is made from scans (Scryfall finally caught up to it's growing backlog of missing scans, took them a while but they got there) or source-quality files.

Card Examples:
"Jhoira, Ageless Innovator" | Open
Image

"Taunting Kobold" | Open
Image

"Aetherflux Reservoir" | Open
Image

"Urza's Command" | Open
Image


Download location:

http://download.austeregrim.net/xlhq_remaster/

Instructions:
Just download everything with today's date (lots of old sets have been updated so replace old with new).

Next Stop:
New SLD's, MTGA Sets, Bulk of Tokens.

Disclaimer: do not repurpose those images for other resolutions. They are made exclusively for HQ AI-Enhanced Forge users.

Enjoy :D

Amazing work, thank you.
But i have one questions, some sets looks like they were taken from MTG Arena:
For example AKR
| Open

Currently i have such image, and it looks like print:
| Open
Image


So, my question is, what is the reason for this?

I can answer that. Those sets are Arena-only. However if you've downloaded XLHQ sets, those were remastered with the physical frames.

Signed up just to say thank you for your excellent work! The colours really pop and brings the card art to life, looks amazing on phones.


The downloads on the austeregrim site no longer work now though, gives a 404 error.

Does anyone have any links to download Necxelos' most recent stuff, like the tokens and the newest sets?

You can get pretty decent results yourself if you use a program called Upscayle to quickly bulk AI enhance the default low res pics (using the Fast-Real-Esrgan option), then use Caesium to compress them to sensible sizes and Bulk Rename Utility to shorten the converted folder names. Alternatively, you can use Irfanview to batch convert the image resolutions to about 672x936 to compress them.
