How do I open/edit the converted DDS Files?

IntelĀ® Texture Works Plugin for Photoshop*

Photoshop batch convert script, Dx10 dds files to .png


How to get the dashboards to the correct scale:

Currently I can only suggest getting the meshes from:

Forza Motorsport 4
Forza Horizon 2

Extra Info:

You also need a Forza Horizon 3\media\_library\ folder extracted, and content of Textures_pri_44 must be moved to Textures folder, then content of Textures_pri_45 moved to Textures folder with confirmation of overwriting existing files, because "pri_44" contains broken textures, and "pri_45" have their fixed versions.
Same for Materials_pri_44 and 45 in both media\_library and media\cars\_library folders.

Your cars should be in: *\media\cars
