Seems like only yesterday we were in a bar, just like this.
And here we again...
So, the great n00b strikes back, and with my words full of absolute rubbish, i come bearing a question:
I have a texture. It's name? Walther.paa. Now you see, when i put it into 02, it looks great! But when i apply the texture, for seem reason it suddenly become a whole lot lighter. In bulldozer and in OFP.
So why is this i ask? Its a .paa file, 512x512 and it looks perfectly normal in 02.
Whether or not this happens to everyone, i don't know.
I've had the same problem with my oil tanks.
And if I do a task switch from OFP with Alt-Tab, my desktop is enlightened, too.
So I've found the following solution: Start OFP, do a task switch back and forth and terminate OFP. Than you should have OFP's gamma settings on your desktop -that makes texture development easy. ;-)
Textures appear brighter in OFP's engine than in your graphix program/on your desktop. Good work-around to design the textures with correct brightness is to do this task-switch-thingy mentioned above. Your desktop inherits OFP's gamma settings (ok, that's my theory...) -this means that you can design textures with real WYSIWYG...
