wrench.gifAutomatic Graphic Lump Texture Conversion


This tool converts any graphic lumps into a PNAMES entry and a TEXTUREx name in one step. For example, you can take any Sprite and also make it into a texture just by click on the name and saving. The names cannot already be a PNAMES or a TEXTUREx name.


There are 3 lists:


1. The first list contains all the graphics lumps that are not yet an entry in PNAMES you can make into a new PNAMES entry and new TEXTUREx entry.


2. The second list contains all the lumps that will be made into PNAMES entries. Add to List2 by selecting from List1. The The standard multi-selection Window selection rules apply. Hold down the Shift key and press the up-down cursor or press the left mouse button to select consecutive entries. You can also hold down the Ctrl key and then left click on any entry in List1 to randomly add any entry.


3. The third list contains all the lumps that will be made into TEXTURE1 entries. Add to List3 by clicking on a name in List2 (if Auto Textures was not enabled see below).


Delete entries in List2 and List3 by double clicking on a name. Entries in List3 are automatically deleted if a List2 entry is deleted.
