    TGA compressed files

    Is there anyone who can tell me a program that saves of exports tga compressed files because i have the code from nehe's game tutorial but it is not working with my files.
    What i do is convert bmp or psd files into tga using acdsee but the code recognise them as uncompressed.

    Thanks a lot.

    Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop both can save compressed TGA.

    Re: TGA compressed files

    Ive read from somewhere that targa files can support some different type of compression, and i think that the nehe implemetation support only rle type compression, so hyour files must be compresse3d rle, if not , do it in rle. I have also a question about tga file, in 16 bits how the data is composed, is it 1555 or 5551 pixel ?
    Did you know that trekbbs use the same bbs engine???

    The GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation program) is free and has some good features and can load and save most file formats (except .gif!), it can save TGA with rle compression. It is a faily small download and some great features that are very usefull for gfx work.
