How-to Edit AOM's Texture: Captured w/ResoRep & Edit w/Paint.NET [v0.5]

NOTE (Aug 05, 2018)
- This is ONLY for replacing existing Textures aka Override, you can't add new Skins
- This is ONLY to change the design (transparency (Alpha) & color (RGB)) & other Maps of Textures that are used on Agents, Vehicles, Environment, Interface/Menus & Effects
- If you edit the Texture (With Current Tools), for some reason the Model has higher Brightness (I'm in the Ark, I Suggest turning the Brightness down)
- AOM's .DDS are DX11 "BC7" while SR4/SR3 used DX9/DX10, so a Plugin is required to open AOM's .DDS files in Paint.NET (The Plugin requires you to rename your DX11 .DDS to .DDS2)
- There is no Current .DDS File Viewer for quickly viewing DX11 like a Gallery
- WARNING THIS APPLICATION will Capture approx 2GB of Textures = approx 5000 Files & 10 Folders

- Add Labelled Screenshots
- Add Library what File#'s Skin belongs to Character, Weapon or Vehicle
- Work on My Mod Ideas

1-C. View & Edit Texture

- Diffuse Maps (Color/Design Texture) is in "DXGI_FORMAT_BC7_TYPELESS"
"DXGI_FORMAT_BC1_TYPELESS" are maps that may deal with Lighting, Bump or Specular
(I wouldn't know)
- Tip from victorzvyagin360 (Youtube - 00lAc2Sh9U), Agent/Vehicle -Diffuse/ColorMap- Textures are approx 1366KB or more
- Some Skins are split into Multiple Files
- I'll be making a List of what # = Agent/Vehicle (Some)

1. Navigate to Original Textures Folder > Pick the Folder of the Type & Texture
you wish to Edit > View by Detail & Group by Size

Open & Edit the .dds2 Files with Paint.NET > Save As > Go to & Open Modded
Texture Folder > Change "Save as Type" to DirectDraw Surface (DDS) (*.dds2) >

Save Configuration will appear
> Under Settings = "BC7 (sRGB, DX11+)" or "BC7 (Linear, DX11+)"
> BC6H/BC7 Compression Mode = "Fast"
> Error Metric = "Perceptual"
> Check Generate MipMaps > "Nearest Neighbor" or "Fant"

1-D. Viewing Modded Texture in Game
IN WINDOWS EXPLORER > Go to Modded Texture Folder > Rename the Extension of
.DDS2 to .DDS > Start Game & Change to Skin (4294528150 = Gat's The Rookie Skin)

NOTE - If AOM won't start go to the Game Folder hide the d3d11.dll Copy & Paste
(Adds a - Copy to Filename) > Rename the ori_d3d11.dll to d3d11.dll > Start AOM >
Wait for Loading > Close AOM > Rename the d3d11.dll back to ori_d3d11.dll >
Rename d3d11 - Copy.dll to d3d11.dll > Start AOM (If that doesn't work delete
game_d3d11.dll or/and run AOM as Adminstrator or/and Use Task Manager to Close
Steam then Reopen and/or run ResoRep.jar again)
[C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Agents of Mayhem\aom]
