Then I downloaded the DDS plugin for Photoshop, installed that, viewed the DDS file, and … there’s a big gray band across the bottom of every DDS image, just like the gray bands I am seeing in-game. At first I presumed this was a bug in nvdxt and looked into how to use nvcompress, but that doesn’t handle batch files. Note that you can see these gray bands very clearly in the file listing from yesterday’s blog post!

PNG came out all wacky, I don’t even know what is going on: But hey, this was an old version of stb_image_write, I should upgrade that to a new version when I am back to a stable point. . … and it worked perfectly.

Reverse Design: Chrono Trigger - 2

(Some stats are more mathematical than others.) But because there's not a whole lot going on in the first quest, we've saved this space for you! Email your request for some kind of stat to and we'll put it up. Make sure you read all the other Stats first, so we don't get a lot of repeats. Cheers!

There are two big, historically important design changes that take place in Half-Life, and the evolution from the composite/CCST style into the set piece style is the first one.
