Is it possible to change some map textures like ffa2, due1 etc? My problem is that i despise dark textures .. models are mostly dark and its hard to aim on dark textured maps and unpleasant for my eyes ;p . I tried replacing duel1 and ffa2 map's textures with ffa3 sand texture ..with the proper texture names of course.. heck, i even bothered to change the sizes as the original were.... and still, when i load some maps , jka crashes with a "cannot find shader" error ... sigh . So my question is .. is it possible to change main map's textures safely? if yes - how ? :) ( also, please refrain from saying how i suck at these things.. its obvious enough already )

Well, it actually IS possible, but it isnt okay to do. You can decompile map, change textures, compile it again and replace it in assets. But there is other way, if its too dark for your eyes, just increase brightness in options/more video.
forgot to add : ps: please don't tell me to increase my brightness.. its a gay solution .... and about the decompiling.. how's it different from what i've been doing ? i've opened the assets1.pk3 that has the map textures .. replaced bespin and korriban folders inside with the the ones that i modified my textures in.. the assets1 is repacked . launch the game... and some maps (ffa3 that i didnt even touch) wont load .. error loading shaders
What format are you're new textures in?
same as the previous one of course .... most were jpeg .. few were png .. like i said , they are absolutely the same ;p apart from looking different.. same format, same picture size ... different file size only ..
k to make things easier ... i zipped and uploaded my modified bespin folder here http://download.yousendit.com/73DE744350318B82 .. this folder is what i put in my assets1.pk3/textures/ folder and replace the old bespin folder there.... and ffa3 map won't load after that
NEVER, EVER replace part of an assets file! Make a new pk3 for everything. I'll take a look at these and see.
Edit: What's that Thumbs.db file doing in there?

Dont mind that, thats automaticly made by windows for when you have thumbnails.
Oh, well I can't see anything wrong in there, so I don't know.

Ok, your textures are fine. Just make sure on your final pk3 you put the bespin folder inside a textures folder or it wont show up.
