Basically, I scrapped the whole ground bitmap tutorials show you to use and made a metal / ice ground using textures from the tutorial folder. (So basically no explicit alpha deal, do I need one?)

I copied each file location for each texture I used (total of 4-5 I think) and used those locations for the name of the texture in 3ds Max 2011, I think I remembered from a video or something to do that, so tool would recognize it when it built tags or compiled or something? I could be wrong, but anyhow..

Everything shows great in 3ds Max, but I am having issues building tags for those. I copied and put the bitmap images I was using into my mapname bitmaps folder, but when I go to build the tags, it creates them as DXT1 tags automatically ... I have tried every combination possible (Opening guerilla and changing the file type (16 bit, 32 bit, monchrome, and the others) and then recreated the tags, and compiled the scenario. I also added water to this map, and that tag works fine.

No matter what though, after I open sapien, run radiosity, none of my textures show up. No matter how I change the tags. The whole level is gray, but the water is fine.

Any help? Thanks

Use 3ds Max

But seriously, you need to go to the shader_environment tags and put the bitmap paths in the base map field, as well as needed detail maps/bump map.

Yes, I just remembered to do that, running radiosity now, it should work fine.

I use 3ds Max 2011.
