Hello,

I use to make custom textures and skin weapons models everything even small things like pickup images for peoples who needed custom stuff for their mods.

It always worked when i did it for cod4 codwaw. It used to work for cod2 too but now it doesn't i have Photoshop CS5 Portable. I think it used to work when i was using CS2.


Alright so basics i covert iwi2dds then open .dds file in Photoshop.



Okay now i edit it anyhow i like i then right click image and do "Flatten Image"
I'm not using any "Alpha Channel" for this image

Then i "Save As"



After i save i get this box with the .dds or .tga (targa) file options.



Now i get this box and i always do no Mip maps and i always do DXT5 - Interpolated Alpha This is the options i used always and always worked for cod4 and codwaw but cod2 i have no idea i tried the DXT1 - No Alpha and DXT1 - 1 Bit Alpha tried with Mip Maps but then just the image size gets much bigger.

After that i do dds2iwi and get the .iwi file and i then rename it to match the original image name place it in my mod (Call of Duty 2/MyModNameHere/NameOFiwd.iwd/images/)


Also i noted it doesn't work for 1 reason my file that i make with Photoshop is either too big or too small of the size! Original file that i am editing is 724 Bytes and i get 540 bytes or if i do with Mip maps i get over 1000 Bytes



Here is the properties we got by using settings that i described in this post.

They were working for few hours now their gone i don't know why this happened but the question is okay with out the pictures i mean i did the way we all always do it and it always did do work :)

But i have no clue why it works for cod4 and codwaw but not for cod2



I have sent my image file to my friend via xfire and he did the exact same way and i tested the .iwi file that he made and it all worked perfectly! iwi2dds for cod4 and cod2 is the same isn't it? the iwi2dds and dds2iwi doesn't work for mw2 neither black ops.

------------------
Any ideas?
