    That error indicates a missing subfolder. Did you extract toolkit with either 7zip or winrar? Certain other archival apps will not correctly extract empty subfolders. Nice wallpaper btw. I'm a huge Dragon Ball fan, myself. :)
  3. I extracted with WinRAR, but after reading the post I extracted again and its working now, thanks :)

    However my board still isn't working (I replaced "billboard_psshaundi_a_d.tga.DDS")

    But the tool is working now thank you very much ill work out what im doing wrong soon :)

    P.S: DBZ is fucking awesome! :D

    Are you sure that the right zone is loaded? That Shaundi billboard actually changes over the course of the game where STAG writes graffiti on it. a_d is the original and only shows up in Steelport pre-STAG, and b_d is the post STAG version.
  5. I decided to try replacing billboard_3count_b_d.tga.DDS in an attept to see if this was the issue; with the Shaundi sign still replaced; when I found the Shaundi sign trying to test the 3count sign my game dipped from 20 fps to 9 fps; the texture was blurred but the original seemed intact, and EVERYTHING lost thier player clips, even the ground xD o_O, I know im majorly F'ing something up i just dont know what lol

    That is bizarre. Something must be terribly wrong with the dds file you've created. Attach it here to your post and I can take a look.

    EDIT: uploaded the DDS; dont have much access to my pc at the moment; but cheers for all your help IdolNinja; know that it hasnt gone unappreciated :)

  9. Thank you so much for this!
  10. regarding this in another of your billboard threads:

    That elusive billboard is well hidden inside sr3_city_0\sr3_city_awld.str2_pc\sr3_city_awld.gpeg_pc

    It is the only .gpeg_pc file in all of sr3_city_0 and sr3_city_1 pack files! The reasons it caught my eye is because I modded so many files in .gpeg_pc files, and its size. I knew there had to be interesting stuff in there!
