I am having a real problem finding the in-game maps for FH2. Ones that will work in the program ATC (Advanced Tactical Center) The only maps I could find were on the FH website but they are not suitable for ATC tactical use. I tried to convert the actual PNG map files from the mod itself, but no luck, they seem to be 'blank" or something Does anyone know how I can find these maps? Any help is greatly appreciated. BTW FH2 rocks, been playing it since it came out.

When i was in a bf2 tourney with custom maps the way i used to do it was to get a battle recorder file and use the free look around the map and take screenies of the flags.

I know its kinda long winded but then time you spent looking for the pics you might as well do this.

Tthe "PNG" files are not actually PNG files, they are DDS dxt1, copy the file somewhere and rename it ingamemap.dds. You need the nvidia dds plugin to view/edit these in photoshop: Adobe Photoshop Plug-ins

... or use XnView (free) to convert the DDS pics to .png, .jpg, etc

Update: using Xn view was not even neccessary... the maps are viewable in the mod files with regular windows viewer. I had converted them into jpegs with xnview and wondered why the qulaity was so bad. :kerian:
