    Use the alphasearcher2, there was a link somewhere in this thread.

    Check the log it created.

    J van E, It can cause huge pauses(stutters) when loading such textures. This was especially noticeable for me with the maddog 2010, everytime it took 4-5 seconds to load the VC and I thought it was the devs fault. After fixing such files with this tool now the load times are nonexistent. Aerosoft sceneries and some really old payware stuff is full of these textures. It helped with Amsterdam too for me.

    Ah, I see. After fixing with dxtfixer alphasearcher didn't return any hits for me.

    They are not missing, but flagged incorrectly in the file as not present. Which is wrong for dxt3 and causes problems with the fs engine and/or the gpu itself. This is what neumanixs tool does, just change the bit without any need for resaving.

    It helped tremendously with maddog for sure. It used to unload all the scenery and vc textures when I got out of the vc and caused awful blurs. Now it never happens . Thanks a lot for that alone. ^_^

    I meant for all the pcs, not old ones only.

    This problem causes major stutter and massively increased load time for textures, including vc. So, everyone can easiliy benefit from this no matter the system.

    :( So that's why. But most of the newer scenery have mips and no flashing problem. Edit: Checked with aerosoft eham, it has mips by default and bad flashing problems.(this thing is a mess...) Airports that I've add mips to don't flash though.

    I assume it's the same with fsx, maddog vc took a while to load on that too.

    Before, maddog took seconds to load the vc but now its instant. Lack of alphas was the problem, this is great. :lol: They were recommending converting vc textures to dxt1, which helped but now I know the exact reason.

    neumanix, how does your tool work? Does it resave like dxtbmp or just add the missing alpha?

    With the help of macro recorder It took me a couple hours at most to complete all the textures. With an i7 system I bet it would take far less. So I haven't done any perfromance testing but visually everything is fine so far. The biggest offenders were old flytampa and all the aerosoft stuff.

    Anyone noticed any quality loss? Dxt is a lossy format and I actually don't like the idea of resaving.

    What kind of negative effects? Btw, aerosoft stuff is full of alpha and mipmap problems.
