Missing texture files for MTO maps
« on: March 02, 2013, 12:50:02 PM »

Hello,

Several people seems to have raised the same issue i'm having, but i can't find the solution

There seems to be several textures missing from my DBW build and this means that MTO maps wont load

At least these are missing -
MTO_WATER.TGA
MTO_DUNES_FIELDS.TGA

I have extracted a file list from the sfs in the dbw install and those files are not in the install, and yet the MTO maps use them (they are mentioned in the errors)

What am i missing? anyone have any idea where can i get these files?

Regards and thanks

MTO maps load ok in my DBW game
not sure why you would be missing default game textures

MTO_WATER.TGA is actually named though, MTOWater.tga
MTO_Dunes_Fields.tga is spelled accordingly, although the Capitalization doesn't really matter I don't think

Sure you don't have some other _Tex folder or Textures over-riding the default textures
because the two textures you need are IL-2 default game textures that everyone has before they Mod there games so they have nothing to do with DBW

simply extract the files you need, from the default IL-2 SFS Files
not from DBW SFS Files

Thanks, Boomer for the lead. However, I have just scoured the sfs-s in my copy of the original folder and still none of these files. At least now i know it's a problem with the original folder. Perhaps i didn't apply a patch correctly

Could be missing a patch,
although that usually gives you a missing SFS File and that produces a 5% CTD

Strange  :D

Anyway,here are all the MTO Textures  ;)

The textures you gave me worked and allowed me to load the maps, but there were further issues..big rectangles all over the sea. I had all but resigned to flying in a psychedelic nightmare when I decided to take a closer look at the patches i was using. It turns out the issue was a patch I found well over a year ago (409b1m.zip) used to make faulty install. I had a look at the 409m patch on missionfortoday and it's size differed from mine by a factor of two. So, I Reinstalled from scratch using the larger patch and it worked a charm. Cheers
