Thundercraft Posted February 13, 2020 Share Posted February 13, 2020 (edited) I'm currently working on a mod for a game. And I'm trying to modify a .DDS "diffuse" texture. I found a tutorial on how to create or modify textures for the game. However, it was written under the assumption that the reader is using Photoshop. I was able to modify the texture just fine. However, in-game, it looks very glossy. This is not intended as it is supposed to be a texture for clothes. Finding and reading the tutorial I mentioned explains that to make a texture appear glossy in-game, the alpha channel must be white. And to make a texture appear matte in-game (which is what I need), the alpha channel must be black. Thing is, no matter how I select the options for saving in the .DDS format, it always appears glossy. And I do not find an option to change whether white or black is used as transparent for the alpha channel - either in the menu for saving in the .DDS format or anywhere else. Am I missing something obvious? Is it even possible to use black for the alpha channel in Paint.Net? Is there a plugin to do this? Edit: I got a reply from the author of the tutorial when I asked for clarification: In PS, there's an option to show separate channel of RGBA. Each channel is in grayscale and I can manipulate each channel separately. I still don't get it. But then, I haven't used PhotoShop in a long, long time.
