About This File
Here is all what you will need for European Air War modding: Skinning tools, 3D models tools and
texture/files decompressors/converters, as much as batch files to make conversions faster.
PCX files can be oppened by any drawing program like Paintshop pro or Photoshop.
Otherwise you can download the excellent free open source program "THE GIMP" for your textures and pcx.
Special thanks to Colonel Gibbon that provided me all this useful stuff. Also thanks to EAW community and the source code committee that keeps this wonderful game alive and never stops improving it.
EDIT: From Col. Gibbon: You can skin in 24bit BMP format too.
The restiction on this is, 8bit runs in Glide & D3D mode, and 24bit colour runs only in D3D.
We have not been able to get 24bit working on Glide, as it was never designed to work in higher than 16bit.
Note: If you run vista you will have to put the CDF extractor in "C:\windows" in order to open it, otherwise it won't work.
