DDS settings for SCR

The Curious

Hello people,
Anyone knows the exact settings I need to use for splash screens (title and pre-briefing) in SC Remastered? The artist is (so far) sending them as .PNG to me. I'm converting using GIMP 2.10.20 (will soon upgrade as a new version is out and maybe it solves another, unrelated issue that I'm having).

The export setting windowlet looks like this (see attached image).

Note: I'll experiment, of course, but I'm asking in case the default method fails, or if there are any caveats. I used DXT1 compression (the first option) and it seems to look/behave fine both in HD and SD mode (I don't think HD2 can be invoked at will but there seems to be nothing complicated about it, it's the same as HD but at quarter size).

TIA

Who am I, and why should I care?

I am Renato

In my case, it is enough to convert the DDS into an online page (with the exact size of the title HD2 & UHD)

I would like to give you the size myself, but I don't have my laptop at hand xd Look in Cascview for the glue / title path (it was something like that) in HD2 & SD as you would imagine it is almost the same.

Convert the title dds to PNG and you will get the size.

I'm kinda aware of the sizes. :) Just wanted to know if there are any caveats with the settings. But since simply setting the compression to DXT1 works, I withdraw the question. :)

No-Name-Needed-II -- Excalibur I think I'd have to just upload the whole map or have you meet me in game to dl it

Ultraviolet shouted: Zoan I found 64-bit SC broke all sorts of stuff, I never liked it
I wonder if it has been enabled by default in the launcher since remastered came out, or if it was in some later patch :O

Zoan -- But ya, I can/do (sometimes) make maps, and I like RPG maps. I'd like to see your terrain work too!

No-Name-Needed-II shouted: Zoan you mentioned making kotk maps.. I've got a 110% fully polished up terrain I've been sitting on since 2019.. I'm more a painter than a poet, I've got no storyline to do it justice so if you or anyone else want to check it out MSG me.. If no takers than I'll probably just upload it to terrain genre in a few days.. SCBW is running outa lifespan so i'm at that point where little gems I've got will never see the light of day otherwise ;(
Oh, I meant "KOTK maps that I have in a folder," not "KOTK I made" since I've never made any of those maps lol

No-Name-Needed-II shouted: Zoan Could it have something to do with the turn rate? I found recently the hard way that when I have too many unit orders triggered at once with hyper triggers on "I think it was Dynamic" It caused a crash similar to an EUD crash on non-eud maps.. -Also when does the map crash?? does it crash after briefing at start of game??? or does it crash when you use a spell???
right after mission briefings

Excalibur -- NNN, would love to see your terrain work. Maybe post in terrain forum?

Zoan shouted: TheHappy115 Oh, I mentioned in a thread but not the shoutbox, but it does work if you run SC in 32bit as suggested by Butch.
I found 64-bit SC broke all sorts of stuff, I never liked it
