DXTBmp (Martin Wright)question

Recommended Posts

HelloI use this very useful utility to convert aircraft textures from 32bit to DXT3.I usually drag each texture file one at a time and convert it.I was wondering if there is a way of converting the whole folder in one go?I have tried fiddling,copying pasteing etc but i can still only convert each file one at a time.cheers Andy

Did you try editing the batch file - substituting DXTBmp for Image Tool?Obviously DXTBmp and the textures to be modied must all be in the same folder also.Try it in a test area and see if works.
