Shiny Skins

Discussion in 'Stock Car Extreme' started by MysteryHelmet, Jun 12, 2015.

  1. Very sorry if this is the wrong place.

    Another person attempting to make skins for a Gmotor game and finds they are shiny. I have played with the alpha channel, painting it black and the like. It doesn't seem to be having any effect. I still end up with a shiny skin.

    So, I'm wondering if it has to do something with how I'm saving. Does it matter if I flatten the file before I save it as a .dds?

    Once again, sorry if this is the wrong place...

    Are you exporting the DDS as DXT1? This makes the skin REALLY shiny. You need to export it as DXT5
