textures arent loading when i load a level

Post by powderedtoastman » Thu Jul 19, 2012 5:52 pm

when i load most levels it goes through the loading sequence showing what is loaded and currently loading then i get an error message saying that it couldnt load a specific texture, i click ok and the game closes. any ideas on what the problem is?

i got the exact same error...it would be missing a .tga file...i looked in the specified folder and found that all of those .tga files had been converted to the .dds file format...i think the game is having an error converting them back to tga. i made a copy of one of the files and pasted it back in...removing everything past the .tga ("hex_crete_boulder_c.tga_converted.dds" became "hex_crete_boulder_c.tga") it then had the loading error with a different file...i think if you did this for all the files in that particular folder it would stop. i have yet to try

Please provide necessary links to get there. You're saying to a helpful person that he is wrong, while you should be giving an example of how to do it properly. It only takes a few minutes.

Click that, and it will expand into a larger section that has a link to wolfire.com/spf/redeem/(your key here) which will allow you to link your forum account.
That's how you get preorder access.

To fix the texture access, follow this link:
