Nooby Needs help converting bhd - JO terrain

Postby CrAzZyKiLLa » 01-19-2006 08:11 AM

Im new to this thing and still trying to learn the basics so bear with me :)

i want to tranfer a BHD terrain to JO for a map im doing, DVD4, i used the pff to get the bhd ones out and used the DPTH2CDEP.exe to change the CPT file to jo, i load it into nile and i can see the terrain and the hills ect but its all black what have i done wrong, all the dvd4 files i took out of the bhd pff are in the jo dir, what am i missing :confused:

are there any tutorials out there with step by step instructions to making a terrain or converting one?

thanks

the problem is that you added the bhd color picture, bhd has a 32 bit tga image with a alpha chanel, jo has a 24 bit tga with no alpha chanel. either open the pic in adobe and delete the alpha chanel or just open and resave it and when it asks 32 or 24 select 24. that should be all you need to do

Thanks, i did that and in nile in the 2d view i can see the ground but when i go into 3d View its still black ground, i looked at it in game aswell and that was also black

The files in my JO folder are

dvd3.cpt, DVD4.TRN, dvd4_c.tga, dvd4_f.pcx, dvd4_m.pcx and thats it, i changed the dvd4_.tga as you said

ok then you will have to get your hands on a jo .trn file and change the info where as needed, mainly the the cpt name the color map name any foliage pcx images and all the whole pollycount sector sections you can usauly copy that whole section from the bhd trn file for that terrain in to the jo polly secotor section. that is the spot with all the numbers
