What programs are recommended to edit .V30 and .dds?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'd like to re-texture the original em4 units just for private use, but I don't know what program to use to edit .dds and .v30 files. Can someone please help me?

.v3o = a plane text editor(not word) but notepad of notepad ++

.dds = dds converter like jab16 said, or with photoshop and the dds converter, both download-able from the download center(both dds converters)

Personally I use Photoshop CS5, but used photoshop 7 before that. I hated CS1-4, but 5 is another story! I love it!

For v3o and scripts nothing beats Notepad2 imo.

Use gimp, it has more features than paint and I personaly think it works 10x better. If you use it, you have to download a plugin for dds.

Sorry to double post but there is another problem. I've downloaded GIMP 2.6 and tried to open both .dds and .v30 with it but it says:

C:/Program Files/sixteen tons entertainment/Emergency 4/Data/Models/Persons/Police/profiler.dds (and .V30) is not a valid Win32 application.

Can someone tell me what the problem is or if there is a required plugin for GIMP?

I don't think GIMP requires a plugin to open .dds, and I know Paint.Net doesn't need a plugin.

I use paint.net and that opens .dds files with no problem.

Try opening files from a mod not the original game and see if models from a mod work.

Hope I didn't just bump an old thread. If you open a v3o file in notebook or notebook++ or notebook2 and see a crazy jumbled mess, this file is still locked it must be unpacked in the game editor.

Norm,
