Saving repaints in DXTBmp

Cambridge Guest

I've worked out how to do repaints and get them working in FS9, but the file sizes are one to two megs, whereas the original ones were only a few hundred kb. Can someone tell me if I'm saving everything right? This is what I'm doing:

1) Convert original textures to Targas in DXTBmp
2) Edit in Photoshop
3) Convert Targas to "Extended 32bit 888-8" in DXTBmp

The repaints work in FS9, but I can't help but wonder if the new larger files will hit my framerate. Am I saving the final repaints as the right file type in DXTBmp?

I haven't a clue about repainting, but someone will be along soon. If it still works the same way, you could save the textures as a different file format such as Jpeg Dont Know . Not too sure if you can do that for repainting though 😉

Try converting as Bitmaps not Targa's in DXTbmp first

Hi 99jolegg, Convert The PNG To .dds and then put it in texture.x
Hope It Helps!
