    If you've done some .eng light editing before, then hopefully the short answer will work. I'm no expert so hopefully if there's a better way someone else chimes in, but the way I'd do it would be to...

    Hi Darrell.... I can't tell from reading your post how much experience you have had with editing lighting in .s files. I'm no expert but I would be happy to try to help but it would help me to know...

    Spot on, totally agree. I've spent hours messing with loco lighting (and smoke) trying to get some more realistic effects, but the current limitations make it impossible. There's a million things...

    Yes Geoff, Martin's program is the one I use.

    And yes, the quality and quantity of modern digital photography made my era of choice for reskins a no-brainer but you're absolutely right about the...

    You're welcome Geoff... and I couldn't recommend dds more to anyone that is still making textures. The only complaint I have about it is that my 1024 ace textures now look pretty scrappy when...

    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...

    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...
