what format for non-miped Alpha channel bmp for FS9?

Recommended Posts

Guest PaulL01

Hi All,Quick question, Seems as though FS9 is not displaying the old style alpha-channel non-miped format that is prefered for certain objects in FS2k-Sk2...Does anyone know what format or tool will allow alpha chanel with-out mip-mapping (just on/off is OK, do not need gradient)?Thanks,

Hello Paul,Both Martin Wright's DXTBmp and Microsoft's ImageTool will allow you to create your file without mipmaps.In DXTBmp, select this in the Preferences menu.However, perhaps the game has become somewhat picky as to the texture format that it will accept. Could you please give more details? It would be interesting to see what can and cannot be done now.Best regards.Luis

I just used the DXT1 format using Martin Wright's Dxtbmp and unchecked Mipmaps when saving and now the Kodak tower once again has open spaces.Thanks again guys!http://www.frontiernet.net/~pleatzaw/images/kodak.jpg
