This is a "remaster"-mod done by a FAN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSDVY6Q9pfk

Well done, he totally crushed the TP art-style. Though some parts looks cool, though.

Also, TP cant look better on dolphin because its same game in just higher resolution, while TP HD except resolution bump also has complete overhauled of textures, better shadows and lighting, post-process and anti-aliasing.

I need to get my eyes checked then i guess... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSDVY6Q9pfk

if you dont like the art style that your persnal taste. The lightning is still years ahead in comparison to the official twilight princess HD and he isnt even porting the game but working with emulation. Also bump mapping is very good.

Yeah, but there are may things to consider. A remaster of any game must not touch the original's art style. This is my personal opinion, obviously, and I really dislike all that Dolphin remasters which try to be so cool that totally crushed the original, making it feel and look a completely different games sometimes. And, second, what are the specs of a PC which manages to run that? Is it more powerful than a WiiU? Or not?

sure its need to be more powerfull, because he EMULATES the game. SOFTWATRE EMULATION, that needs ALOT power. The game with those graphics could run completly fine on the wii u, scince it would get ported to the wii u and not emulated.

BTW nintendo changed the artstyle with windwaker hd as well.

Two things:

 

1.) I'm a pretty big Zelda fan and I've purchased WW an TP when they released and when they re-released on day one.  Which on is better is a matter of opinion but TP offers waaaay more content.  The WW art style  may have aged better but TP is still the more advanced game.

2.) You can get TPHD without the Amiibo for $49.  The same as Wind Waker. Why would it be less?

Because completely new Zelda will be $59 while HD port of old game cost only $10 dollars less!?

Don't get me wrong, I pre ordered TP HD, I just think WW HD and TP HD needs to have price of $40 not of $50.

Majora's Mask came out in 2000. It costs $39.  

 

What determines value?  The graphics? The budget? How much time it's been since release? How many hours of enjoyment you get from it?  In the past week or two, I purchased TWD Michonne ($15), Street Fighter V ($60), Gravity Rush ($40), Twilight Princessand($60), Resident Evil 0 ($20 and I still have the Gamecube version of this game, too!).  

Maybe it's just a port or cash grab but TPHD has jumped right to the top of my playlist and everything else is gathering dust. Some may feel it's overpriced but I'm definitely getting my $60 woth! I still have the Gamecube version and I'm still thanking God for the improvements we have, here!

Just becaus . TP *can* run with those changes doesn't mean it would run on Wii U.  Yes, a TP remade completely could look that way.  But one using the original engine?  You know, the one that's over a decade old?  Heck no.  Just look at WWHD, which uses the same engine.  It has big frame rate drops at certain moments due to the addition of the lighting enhancements and that's only one piece.  And WWHD has far simpler geometry and lower res textures.  So imagine how bad TPHD would run with just that lighting system running.  Then amplify that with the addition of all that other stuff.  

Also, those textures in that fan mod are technically well done but lack artistry.  Or to be more blunt, several tile ruthlessly, especially the desert ones, which is highly distracting.  I've looked at numerous fan mods and where textures are concerned I prefer TPHD by a mile.

The wii u is not as weak as you think. If a PC can run this emulated, wii u wouldnt have a problem.

Modern high end pcs cant even emulate wii u games at something above 10 fps. If they can emulate this, the wii u could run it nativly.

Okey, badly worded. I wanted to say "must not crush", not "must not touch". WWHD has some nice improvements on lightning and textures, but it's not far away from the original. It retains, and feels WW. While that dolphin TP doesn't look anything like the original TP. I meen, look at Kakariko village. It's completely different to the one on TP, and it certainly lacks... a lot. Some parts look good, but others are truly abismal. I prefer the texture rework in TPHD, tbh. And it would be impossible to make a game that looks like that with a very old engine, so... 

And, well, I really prefer to pay 50 bucks for TPHD than buy a rig and play the game in Dolphin.

I wont say its much different (imo at least).

Its still a shame to nintendo is some fans do an better job then your final product, no matter if an high end rig is more expensive or not.
