Idea and target
It's no secret that the PC version of FIFA 07 was graphically terrible. Pixelated faces, torn-eyed pitch, blurry interface textures... EA has mocked PC players over the years, slipping something incomprehensible instead of innovation and progress. The goal of this project is to improve the quality of the game, primarily in graphic terms. To achieve this, resources from other games will be used, as well as new technologies - such as smart increasing of the image quality.

Current progress
Replaced all face and hair textures (more than 8000 files) with enhanced ones (from FIFA 08 and other games).
Badge resolution increased from 100x100 (128x128) to 200x200 (256x256)
More than 6'000 minifaces added (more than a half of total players).
Fixed all known "fake" players.

Help from community
A lot of help is needed with kits. This is the main area where manual work is needed. At the moment, kits are simply upscaled to 1024x1024. So kits are better than original, but not that good. An alternative option is to redraw each kit manually, but it requires a lot of time and people. If there will be enough people, we can consider this option.

At least, generic kits must be replaced (example: Napoli, PAOK, National Teams, and many others). The list with such teams is attached to this message. There are also many kits without sponsor (Barcelona, Sevilla, and many others). This could be improved after all kits will be upscaled.

A help with redrawing and upscaling some interface textures is also needed.

Current plan
3D game

Replace all faces and hairs with better version - this is done by 95%.

Improve stadium textures
2D menu
Replace badges, minifaces and minikits with better version - this is done by 70%

Fix hair lod type for players with new hair mesh
Database
Improve database - add missing players

FIFA 07 was my first FIFA. I spent tens of hours with it. I still have that FIFA 07 Remaster project started to bring the 2006-07 season to the FIFA 14 engine. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, and maybe I'll be able to help somehow?

Maybe with backgrounds? Did you increase them with Gigapixel or Rimini?
There are many images to be increased.
But Rimini has a 5 images limit per day, so we need help from someone else here.

I did it probably in Let's Enhance.

FIFA 07 was my 8th FIFA (after FIFA 2000) but I probably spent the most hours in it and it was my first modding experience, such fond memories!
(thank you @MonkeyDragon if that's actually you, I remember the FIFA 07 2GK kit tool I used).
Also my first ever experience of having Russian PL in a video game, back when i didn't have high speed internet and actually bought a pirate CD with RPL installed :D

If I'd care that much about graphics, I would just play PES 2021, FIFA 21 and other recent football games but I play FIFA 07 because of it's gameplay and career mode which are the best.

FIFA 07 and UEFA Champions League 2006/07 XBOX 360 versions should offer HD graphics which you can adapt to the PC version. Check the EA Sports games dedicated thread on zenhax to have a look on the scripts needed to extract these files. ISOs of these games can be easily downloaded online.

Aren't there just 5 leagues on XBOX?
Yes. I mean, you can have a look at those then Next-Gen games if you need HD graphics.
UCL should have few more kits (included the ones with CL sleeve badge) and faces than FIFA 07.
Next-Gen minikits are 256px if I remember rightly, even bigger than the standard size in FIFA 09 & 10 PC version

I will use some graphics from there, but not much.

A new tool for database packing/unpacking was developed.
I know about DB Master, but it didn't allow to edit tables and fields properties.
With new tool it will be possible.


Now let's think about new leagues which can be added. Here's the list of leagues which we have in FM 07:
Code:
Argentina - Level 1
Finland - Level 1
Greece - Level 1
Hungary - Level 1
Ireland - Level 1
Romania - Level 1
Ukraine - Level 1
Israel - Levels 1 and 2
Russia - Levels 1 and 2
Austria - Level 2
Belgium - Level 2
Denmark - Level 2
Netherlands - Level 2
Poland - Level 2
Switzerland - Level 2
Scotland - Levels 2 and 3
Germany - Level 3
Spain - Level 3
Maybe some of them could be added. Maybe all?

You meant something like that?
Maybe you could complete all backgrounds?

I could, but File Master only allows to extract one file at a time. This will be terribly time consuming.

PS. Will this tool find data of players added in winter update like Barthez, Vieri, Kluivert etc.?

I planned to use Septebmer 2006 squads. If some players were missed, they can be added, but it's a manual work.
Approximately 100 football players have been added. Even more have had some data modified, such as the length of contracts.
Even if you use autumn squads (I do too), I would find this useful for me.

Do you still have this patch with the Russian Premier League for FIFA 07? It's an old patch, right? I have the russian premier league for FIFA 07 but only from 2019-2020 season with not many faces in it. I have a good patch for FIFA 08 with the russian PL (from 2007-2008 or 2008-2009) but the FIFA 08 kits are not compatible with FIFA 07. If you still have the patch, do you mind sharing it? The players also have their names in russian?
