Minimaps/mainmaps?
« on: 13-07-2009, 00:07:57 »
Is there a way to get a picture of the mini maps/main map from the levels. for example like you have on the website. However id like to know how to do it for bf2 and bf1942 or would i just use a program like snag it(however that would produce a low quality pic). Thanks

snag it?...

do normal screenshots ingame, or unpack the client.zip for the map and check in the Hud folder, the .dds is in there. In bf1942 the .dds is in the maps /Textures folder, but there you must unpack the map .rfa file with WinRFA which you can get if you install the BFMDTK 2.75 (Battlefield ModDevelopment Toolkit) google it and download  :)

There is a .dds plugin for Photoshop and IIRC one for GIMP (free) as well
