So, I'm exploring the wonderful world of Nieuports for the first time and since the machines lack an altimeter, I thought I'd try modding the stock hud altitude gauge into something more historic. Here's an example of a British wrist altimeter:
Taking an initial rip at the relevant dds file, C:\OBDSoftware\WOFF\MODS\Altimeter\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields\aircraft\shared\hud_gauges, I was frustrated by failure. Am I correct thinking that I must save it as Linear DXT3 ?
I suspect there's also a need to muck about with the alpha channel, which I don't know how to do. I fear a deep rabbit hole. Anybody know of a tutorial?
Any help greatly appreciated.
