THIS IS FOR REFERENCE ONLY - Texture Replacement Location:

PCSX2 Root Folder -> Textures

Enabling Texture Mods

In PCSX 1.7 or higher, go to Graphics Settings, and then the Advanced Tab.

Make sure to check LOAD TEXTURES at a minimum to load the texture packs.

Also, in the main Graphics settings tab, disable Mipmapping.

No interlacing/auto widescreen

These patches are included in the CHEATS folder of the Source-Code.zip file you downloaded.

Move this CHEATS folder into your PCSX2 directory.

In the Emulation Setting of PCSX2, check the box for ENABLE CHEATS.

OTHER RECOMMENDED SETTINGS

PCSX2 Settings

Enable Widescreen and set Deinterlacing to NONE or AUTO

Set Mipmapping to OFF! THIS IS IMPORTANT!! Also set Texture Preloading to Full is recommended to prevent texture popping. Setting Trilinear Filtering to TRILINEAR (FORCED) & Anisotropic Filtering to 16X will improve the visuals of the game, namely the yard lines on the field. If you don't have the option to enable Anisotropic Filtering, you first must disable GPU Palette Conversion. This does increase hardware requirements. So, if you have a lower end PC you'll likely want to disable Anisotropic Filtering & set Trilinear Filtering to AUTOMATIC if you have slow downs.

In Texture Replacements tab, select LOAD TEXTURES. This is the most important step!
