FS2004 crashes loading Gatwick with Norwegian AI


Recommended Posts

BINGO! And here it is. I used this tool myself in FS2004. It's called bmp2dxt3.zip here in the library. I say this all the time, even today, Opa helps me find what I'm looking for even after his passing. Great man. https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?179850-DXT-converter


If you open the batch file with Notepad ++ you'll see it mention meatwater like I knew it had before after all these years.


Make sure you read the readme file and know what you're doing. It can convert your panel files and you don't want that. What I would do is if your AI is in bmp format (just look at the file names), place all those AI aircraft folders in one folder on your desktop and then place the two files in there and run the bat file for conversion to DXT. Then copy back your AI to the Aircraft folder. Since AI in large part don't even have a panel this should be no trouble at all.

Okay, I found a program that can convert bmp to dxt, but I could have swore the program I had was able to convert all images in a folder to a format. This program can't do that. All I know is that the program I had had a folder called meat water or something.


Here is this program called DXTBMP. http://www.mwgfx.co.uk/ Click on program list to find it. You need to install the DLL here: http://www.mwgfx.co.uk/graphix.htm


Here's some Info. on this. https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?224464-DXT-DDS-converting


Found a mass editor but this is only for FSX when I read the bat file. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/413917-dds-mass-texture-converter/



Meat Water was an alternate voice program/files for Radar Contact.
