I didn't make it!
Im using the O.L 2.2 mod which has several anti gas suits that when worn displays a hud that obsures your view as if you were wearing it. A brilliant idea except that the gas huds are horrible and i wanted to make my own. After opening the gas hud (hud_gaz.dds) up in photoshop and editing it, making sure that the area needed was on the alpha channel. When i tried to save it using nvidia dds plugin it wouldnt let me since the save button was suppressed. Does anyone know what settings to save it on the plugin are or any other way to create a hud? cheers
I personnally use "the gimp" with a dds plugin and it works fine.
Don't know with photoshop, sorry mate.
Using Paint.NET works great; easier than Gimp and already opens DDSs. I, in fact, did a few retextures myself with it and it came out great.
You can find the latest version, and all versions, here. -David
seconded on Paint.Net, dl it
I recommend it too.
if you want to have the some plugins too, google for "Paint.NET_3.36_Ultra_Pack_1.01_by_vadimsva.exe" It will direct you to some russian site, but it has a lot user plugins in it, which you would have to search in the forums....
