Re: Singh's Background Emporium
You can't see the skybox in FRED. You have to play a mission with a skybox bg.

Yes you can. It may be that you need to fiddle with the options in the view menu or add the -jpgtga flag to the FRED command line but you definitely can see them.

Strange, I was sure...

Thanks, anyway. There's always something new to learn. :D

Re: Singh's Background Emporium
If you have a TGA texture for the skybox FRED is showing it but since you haven't added the -jpgtga switch it's invisible :D

So unless you have a .dds texture you'd never spot it. :)

Re: Singh's Background Emporium
Ah...so I guess most skybox textures are in dds format so I can't see them.

Re: Singh's Background Emporium
Wrong way round. You'd see .dds. You wouldn't see TGA or JPG unless you added the command line.

Re: Singh's Background Emporium
This is going to be a very, very stupid question..

But how do i download some of these backrounds i see in the screenshoots? And put them in FRED?

 
Re: Singh's Background Emporium
What I did was I copied those gigantic amounts of text and put them all into a .txt file. Then when I wished to use one, I copied the data from that file into the mission's Background section using Notepad (Notepad can open and edit mission files easily enough).

Re: Singh's Background Emporium
Interestingly, one of the maps i made was popular primarily for it's background (As well as the action), which i had to do semi-blindly in Fred2. After extensive testing and fixing I found that it worked great. I don't mind having to do it all blindly though.

Usually i don't really need more than 20-25 nebulae's, tops. I'm amazed that the random way of adding numbers can get such amazing results, however.

Re: Singh's Background Emporium
I'm wondering if the Emporium should be wikified...it'd be a nice idea... :)

What about it?

Re: Singh's Background Emporium
Emporium wikified... ;)

If you guys think adding the screenshots is appropriate, you're free to do that. :)

EDIT: You've probably noticed an unnamed background in the list... how to deal with it?

Re: Singh's Background Emporium
So, it's been a few years since anyone's posted here, but can we post our own backgrounds to add to the ones that Singh made?

Re: Singh's Background Emporium
I guess we can do that, nobody said we can't.
