    I'd had my say Geoff, but will put my oar in one last time. In my view, the only difference between payware and freeware is the cost and availability of it. Beyond that, they're all just pixel...

    I believe it would be a mistake if they were. Pixel trains ain't worth dying of asphyxiation over.

    No it doesn't make sense from the sounds of things. Short of seeing the .eng file entries, shapes etc on the off-chance there's an error there somewhere you've overlooked it's hard to make another...

    How many FA's are you using Erick? The first one can still be tweaked in SFM as always, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc FA's can be tweaked directly via the offsets in the eng/wag file. If you're already...

    The only real change in the process of dds vs ace is that you are using DXTBmp to handle them to/from your editor of choice (paintshop, photoshop etc) rather than TgaTool Michelle.

    Just my two cents on this, I don't know why more ORTS users aren't embracing .dds for their reskins/texture work. I've been using DXTBmp for my reskins for over a year now (thanks Bernard :)) and if...

    That's right Ged. Open Rails doesn't use .sd files and .dds textures allow a larger texture size, (and therefore better texture quality) to be used and unlike dxt1, the compression of them doesn't...
