    You'll need TGATool2. It comes with the route riter package. Have no idea what the latest version of RR is and if you can download it from anywhere. I'm solely into TS2022, but I still recall my MSTS days.

    Hi John,
    Mike Simpson's last version of Route_Riter is available from the library as rr7626fu.zip

    Cheers,

    Another way, if you want to view/edit textures, is to use the texture export function in Shapeviewer.
    View/Textures/Export TGA/BMP.
    This way you can open them in in your image editing software and have a closer view or just go ahead and edit them.
    When you're done just save as a .dds, PaintDotNet does this natively, or save and use AceIt to convert to .ace being mindfull of transparencies.
    .dds textures only work in OpenRails with the "use .dds textures" check box checked.
    I do this without thinking about it so I could have missed something.
