2017-04-26 23:56#282407 Krimzon : Not a problem, just a side effect of me being a Gimp fanboy. I'd use linux over windows if only everything else I dabbled in had programs or support on linux, but even wine can't run everything.

Gimp only loads the files with DX10 headers after unclicking "use DXT10 header" when converting with dds converter, so if you need to edit the textures you can use Gimp but if you don't need to edit you could probably just use the dds converter to make them jpg's or png's.

Keep in mind I also don't know what Max needs for textures because I haven't got that far either, I'm here to learn as well.

OK,

I got PS & it opens them so I will just use that.

The 2 versions of Max I have will not open the converted .dds [sb2dds.exe] [Dx10] So they will need to either be converted to .dds's that open in max [non dx10] or as I'm going to do convert to .png so editing and opacity alpha's are easier.

Yeah the few files I tried from "ao" loaded fine after using only [sb2dds.exe] which leads me to believe they are still using older compression type for those, but I also didn't check them all and haven't tried them in max yet.

but the others I had to use both [sb2dds.exe] and [dds converter.exe] to load them in gimp which is what would need done anyway for use in max as well.

TBM :
I get by alright with scripts, I used to map for cod5:zombies which can get pretty script intensive.

Links to video tut's you've found would be great, PM those and I'll learn pretty quickly.

Use ImageMagick to save .dds as .png


Then do the reverse to go back to .dds

Well the problem is that the rim pack's textures from FH3 are damaged.I opened with Gimp an other dds texture and it worked.I will try to find the textures if I can.

TBM, I fixed the scripts and re-released Thyago's Civic EJ2 without ever looking at that post, I'm good on scripts, It's the modeling stuff I need links for.

As far as gimp goes did you Install the dds plugin for gimp, did you use DDS Converter found On the link I shared of Sterlings OP?

You may need to re rip the texture from the source then use the converter, making sure to untick "use DXT10 header"

I Created a script for P/S to batch convert the .dds to pngs, usually I use XnVeiw to batch convert but as it wont open the dds files correctly I produced a solution that works for me at least.

Added a link and little tutorial to my fh3 convert tutorial as for anyone reading this in the future.

2017-04-28 00:51#282427 Krimzon : Batch conversion saves lives [=

I'm currently downloading what I believe to be the "extra" vehicle texture files as it appears to me the rim textures do not come with all the other textures you get with the car models.

[I might just be download un needed stuff but without looking I will never know]

^^ currently doing Ferrari fxx rim, stopped doing the whole car untill I can get a dashboard.
