There is the issue though that a lot of pre-rendered backgrounds back then had a lot of post-render work done on them, which I think would be the bigger issue to update.

    Source code (as in the actual code) though isn't really that important as it can always be reverse engineered from the final product. In fact, in many cases that's easier then dealing with the source code directly for really old projects.

    I mostly meant textures, though they've probably got a substantial library of suitable res. textures at this point. Touch up time would probably depend on how much time they wanted to spend on rendering it.

    This is what I was referring to when I was questioning how useful the code would be .

    I guess they think Hobbit'ing FFVII instead of splitting funds on bringing multiple titles up to modern looks is a better plan.
