Textures? What textures?

Post by Manymee » 10 Jan 2017 01:59

Hi guys! I've been enjoying myself playing custom levels for a very long time now, and I feel it's time I gave something back. However, I don't see myself building levels anytime soon as I don't have the patience or devious will to plant death traps everywhere ;)
But what I can do is textures, so I would like to experiment making texture packs (wads?).
I have a few major questions and it would be awesome if someone could help me out here.
1.) what resolution is currently favoured? Is 512x512 out of the question, for example? ;)
2.) What program, if there is one, would I need to compile a pack?
3.) Where can I find a decent tutorial?

As always, thanks in advance :) :hello:

Hi Manymee! I'm no expert here so someone else may add to my list:

1. Resolution - primarily 128x128, 256x256 also common.
2. program - latest version of TBuilder by Iceberg (I use v2.4), available at various places like TRSearch.org
3. tutorial - the manual has some advice on this subject, but I'm not sure if anyone has created a more fundamental tutorial. I would check at Tombraiderforums.com - they have the best tutorial collection, IMO.
Of doggie candle fame!
