Extract textures won't work

Recommended Posts

Hi There, this is my first post

 

It says in the readme that you use the 'Extract textures' application to extract the skins, but when I double click on it, nothing happens

 

Can anyone help me so I can edit them

 

Thanks in advance

No, the extract textures that I am talking about is installed with the game disk, and is located within the actual Lock On root folder

It looks to me that you'd use that thru the Start/Run command but I don't know how to do it. I don't even know if it works. ModMan has a CDDS extractor that works well. The only thing is that it extracts the BMP's as 32 bit. You have to run them thru a photo editing program such as Photoshop and remove the alpha channel and save as 24 bit. What textures do you need extracted?

The main textures that I am looking to extract are the actual blank skins, so that I can make my own (e.g F-16, A-10A) skins

There aren't any "blank" skins. They're all painted. You'll need a template that has panel lines, rivits, etc and AFAIK they're only available for the flyable aircraft. You can check Lockonfiles.com for the template downloads.
