Making an icon.dds file?

Post by Trackmaniack » 21 Dec 2009 16:09

Hey there, skinners! Got a quick question for you. I've extracted the "ghost" skins from TMS, and turned them into real skins you can race as, or against, at your whim. Trick is, I can't upload them to Carpark for general consumption because my .zip file has several parts missing--most of which I know how to get, except for the icon.dds. How does one make an icon.dds file?

Copy a icon.dds from any other car zip, now place it in yours (it'll show the wrong car of course), so you should enter the TM Painter and press "save". The icon.dds is updated with the new car. Sorted

Warning Saving in the TM painter may mean you lower the resolution of your diffuse.dds (TM painters have a history of lowering his res skins, depending on the game version), so you should back this up and replace it in the zip if necessary too.
