What DDS Format is the right one to save it? (Shadow of the Tomb Raider)

Post by miky69vandoorne » Sun Jun 30, 2019 9:38 am

Hey, i made a texture i want to save back in .DDS format for SOTR Armor,
Now i don't know witch program i should use (PS - Gimp) i have both,
but most important is idk what DDS Format i need ...
Can someone point me in the right direction?
i already tried a bunch of them and they all appear black in game.

here is a bit of info i could gather about the texture with DDS Checker:

magic : 0x20534444 - DDS
dwSize : 0x0000007C - 124
dwFlags : 0x000A1007 - [DDSD_CAPS] [DDSD_HEIGHT] [DDSD_WIDTH] [DDSD_PIXELFORMAT] [DDSD_MIPMAPCOUNT] [DDSD_LINEARSIZE]
dwHeight : 0x00000400 - 1024
dwWidth : 0x00000400 - 1024
dwPitchOrLinearSize : 0x00080000 - 524288
dwDepth : 0x00000001 - 1
dwMipMapCount : 0x0000000B - 11
dwReserved1
00 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
01 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
02 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
03 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
04 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
05 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
06 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
07 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
08 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
09 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
10 = 0x00000000 - 00000000
ddspf.dwSize : 0x00000020 - 32
ddspf.dwFlags : 0x00000004 - [DDPF_FOURCC]
ddspf.dwFourCC : 0x30315844 - DX10
ddspf.dwRGBBitCount : 0x00000000 - 0
ddspf.dwRBitMask : 0x00000000 - 0
ddspf.dwGBitMask : 0x00000000 - 0
ddspf.dwBBitMask : 0x00000000 - 0
ddspf.dwABitMask : 0x00000000 - 0
dwCaps : 0x00401008 - [DDSCAPS_COMPLEX] [DDSCAPS_TEXTURE] [DDSCAPS_MIPMAP]
dwCaps2 : 0x00000000 -
dwCaps3 : 0x00000000 - 0
dwCaps4 : 0x00000000 - 0
dwReserved2 : 0x00000000 - 0
[DX10 Extension]
Format : DXGI_FORMAT_BC1_UNORM_SRGB
Ressource Dimension : D3D10_RESOURCE_DIMENSION_TEXTURE2D
Misc Flags : 0x00000000
Array Size : 0x00000001
Misc Flags 2 : 0x00000000 DDS_ALPHA_MODE_UNKNOWN

To be honest i still don't know witch format i should pick and with or without mipmaps and any other settings on/off.
Could you maybe post a screenshot?

Thx for your time.
