Okay I got Adobe Photoshop CS 2.

I downloaded the Nvidia DDS plug-in. When I open the files edit them and then save them it dosnt show it in-game. Just the default ones.

I made a file called texture_003.rfa. Dont know if thats the problem. I just saw some map files with _001 and _003 so I guessed it would be the same for theese files.

Any help would be appreciated.

there is no texture_001 or texture_002, so name it texture_001

this must be placed in the main FH folder with the main FH texture file

unless these are map textures then the textures must go in the map itself.

If you are doing a skin with any transparent sections then yes that matters. If your skin contains alpha channels then change the dds format to DXT3 in the plugin's menu. Skins without alpha channels can be saved as DXT1 but I'm not sure if there's any difference in file size between DXT1 and DXT3. As for my texture pack - do as BadSeed says - put mine in a different folder/rename it _002 or something. Or if you want all of them and your new textures unpack my texture_001, place your texture in and re-pack the whole thing again. Welcome to the world of skinning! Good luck with it - it would be great to see some of your work when you have stuff done! :)

There is a noticeable diference in size, a DXT1 has half the size of a DXT3 so if you texture has not alpha layer save it as DXT1
