32 bit to DXT3

Recommended Posts

Can somebody please give me an idea of what performance benefits I can gain by converting my textures to DXT3? I have a few aircraft that could use a few extra FPS, is this achievable by converting the textures? Thanks,-Mike

I'm no expert but I think it's difficult to make general statements concerning performance. On my system there's no real FPS improvement but the loading times when changing views are definately faster. The downside is of course the quality loss when converting the textures to dxt3. My advice would be make a backup of your aircraft textures an try it yourself. Toby
