Coverting from FSX to FS9 (FAIB files)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I recently found some beautiful repaints made by Mark Voigt.

 

I was looking for new paints and he made some beautiful repaints for the FAIB-738 and 739 for Alaska Airlines.

 

These textures are in FSX format and I need to convert them to FS9. Voigt has a simple guide to convert them and he suggests a downloadable program to start with.

 

I actually dont know what program this converting program is. Can someone help me with this?

 

Thanks in advance!

If memory serves, FAIB FSX textures are 2048x2048 and those won't work in FS9.

 

You will have to resize them to 1024x1024.

 

Eliminating 75% of the pixels will most likely greatly reduce the quality, so be prepared.

 

regards,

Joe

I have never tried it before, according to Mark Voigt it is possible to do this without pain. He has a guide on his website: www.kaese2002.de

Turns out, the gentleman concerned is called Maik not Mark...

 

I resize to 1024x1024 using DXTBMP directed to my image software, after converting with ConvimX as described above.

Be interesting to see if Maik's method is quicker and/or gives a better result.
