Hey folks, what do I need to edit textures? I have a program that can save as .tga but I cannot open or edit .dds files. Is there a free application that will do this?
Sorry If this is not that helpful. I have photoshop cs2, so i only use that for creating .dds textures, but I've heard that Gimp could be used for .dds. I downloaded from one of the EAW\FOC websites, a program called "DDS Converter 2" that can take a .tga to a .dds. Unfortuntely I don't remember which one. I generally am here, EverythingEAW.com, or Petroglyph. Using the search option look for "editing textures" on those sites.
Here is the program that i use, it cant edit DDS files but it can change them into somthing you can edit and then change them back again. Halo .dds texture converter, Halo 2 Downloads, Halo 2 Media it may be for halo but it works fine for EAW/FOC
Just google "dds converter 2.1"
there are tons of dds converte out there so you can pick the one you like just google dds to tga converter you'll get arond 45,000 and if you dont have a tga editor google it you'll get around 1,090,000 so just find the ones yoou like as i said theres tons out there
THANKS GUYS, that dds converter 2.1 works real well, and it is especially easy to use.
