From loinne: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DqdeZRGpkrdi3mxVpEgW9cFLQ4jzGTA6 my attempt on Manga109 by fine-tuning RRDB_ESRGAN_x4.pth - slighly more agressive version of Manga109 by Kingdom
Description: "I don't recommend actually using it, as I don't think I have the right combination of settings and dataset. It's just an attempt to show off the versatility of ESRGAN. If you do use it, you should downscale the results, as in addition to being debanded, it'll be upscaled by 2x."
Scale: faux x1 (x2 nearest neighbor scaling)
Description: Tried to train a model to reduce dithering. It only partially succeeded, possibly because I started out with a smaller dataset and kept adding more and more to it out of desperation
Pretrained_Model_G: None, trained from scratch
Notice: Not recommended to use (optional)
Description: Used 9e-2 Gan_weight
Iterations: about 80k
Pretrained_Model_G: Default PSNR_4X
Other Model Sources
The very first Model Database outside of our Discord from Etokapa. It isn't up to date but includes some models that are not from our community or have been deprecated, so if you are lucky the links in it might still work and you might find a gem. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1asDV7NVBlLD25bd4w77mHMxSM7tvexXySafTzSugeHE/edit#gid=0

From: Emilien I should really upload my script so you can pass upscale as an argument. It has a few params and I've added the video script from reddit. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/547950274313191425/560137215104253986/test_-_remadewithfolderandvideosupport.py
