hello,


I just wonder if the format "tga" for a texture is accepted by the games.

thank you

tga has no advantages compared to dds
dds is more efficient, better compression and uses less vram

Hi

OK, I have never heard of tga files, though I am assuming that it is like a jpeg or png.
If so, here is why it is not a good choice:

.dds files (DirectDraw Surface) goes straight to the graphics card, bypassing the Processor.
jpegs and pngs CAN be used, but they require complex calculations by the processor.

You're very welcome.

I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it is a VERY VERY old image file.
