NVIDIA's Modding Platform RTX Remix Launched in Open Beta

The tool lets you remaster old-school classics with full ray tracing and enhanced textures.

After more than a year and a half of eager anticipation, NVIDIA's RTX Remix, a modding toolset that lets modders easily create remasters of old-school DirectX 8 and 9 games, has finally been released to the public and is now available in open beta.

First announced back in September 2022, RTX Remix was built on NVIDIA Omniverse and is a part of the NVIDIA Studio suite of tools for creators. The toolkit comprises two main elements – an application for creating lights and adding remastered assets into a game scene and a runtime for capturing classic game scenes and injecting the remastered assets back into the game at playback. With RTX Remix, users can effortlessly improve the visuals in classic games by capturing game assets, automatically enhancing materials with powerful AI tools, and quickly enabling RTX with ray tracing and DLSS.

Previously, the toolset was used by NVIDIA Lightspeed Studios to create Portal with RTX, a DLC to Valve's original Portal that reimagines the game's graphics with full ray tracing and DLSS 3.

RTX Remix is also the driving force behind Orbifold Studios' Half-Life 2 RTX, a community-made RTX remaster of Valve's legendary first-person shooter.

"What sets [RTX Remix] apart is its ability to capture game scenes, enhance materials using generative AI tools, and efficiently create impressive RTX remasters incorporating full ray tracing, DLSS, and Reflex," commented NVIDIA. "You can even plug in modern assets that feature physically accurate materials and incredible fidelity, into game engines that originally only supported simple color textures and assets of basic polygonal detail."

"Beyond its core capabilities, what makes RTX Remix special is that it offers modders a chance to remaster the graphics of a wide variety of games with the same exact workflow and tool – a rarity in modding. Experts who have mastered traditional modding tools can use them in tandem with RTX Remix to make even more impressive mods."
