Poor Quality after conversion.
« on: 03 Apr 2008, 15:18:44 »
When I convert a Jpeg to a .Paa in Texview the results in game are less than satisfactory. How do I get the quality that I had in my original texture to transfer into the game?
Is there a better conversion tool out there?

:D These boards aren't actually visible to the general public yet, sadly, since the Addon Depot Admin is being a lazy ass. Of course you can see it though, being a staff member and all.  :P

Anyway, I suggest you convert it to something like .tga first, since I think that has better quality by default, and then convert that to .paa using texview?

We really should open up these boards soon...

Sorry Wolfrug, I had no idea.

Don't use jpg, it is very lossy and the artifacts will just get added into any conversion.

Use tga and Texview2, available from the ED.
