resident evil 4 HD project v1.0 (by Albert Marin Garau y Cris Morales)
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
- This is not a remake, it’s a remaster created by fans, for fans.
- The “resident evil 4 HD project” is a complete graphical remaster of the entire game. It includes enhanced textures, 3D models, menus, cutscenes, prerendered videos, lighting, visual effects, and more.
- The HD project also fixes certain sound bugs and broken / missing effects, which arose mainly as a consequence of the many times the game has been ported through the years.
- This package doesn’t include the entire game, only the files to upgrade the game.
- You need to have an installed copy of the resident evil 4 PC port, released on Steam.
- The HD project is compatible with all languages, including the Japanese version. It’s tested for version 1.0.6 & 1.1.0
- Some mods are not compatible with this project. Please ask the modders who created your favorite mods to adapt them to the HD project if needed.
- This HD pack won’t affect achievements or game saves.

- Go to the downloaded ‘Bin32’ folder. Copy its contents and paste it inside the original ‘Bin32’ folder.
- Delete the original ‘BIO4’ folder.
- Copy the downloaded ‘BIO4’ folder and paste it in the ‘Resident Evil 4’ folder. DON’T OVERWRITE IT. DELETE THE ORIGINAL FIRST.
- And that’s it! You can run the game with all of the HD project improvements.
Don’t forget to read the “README” file inside the Bin32 folder! You’ll find out about new features and improvements that our colleagues “nipkow” and “emoose” have integrated to the game!
