haha, I like the downsizing option as large texture files is usually what makes cc take up so much space. Thanks!

Please upload or link to the package you're trying to convert so I can take a look.

For some reason I got this error, but nothing was running in the background. I'm trying to convert EA packages to HQ, and what I did was extract the texture files into a separate package. Could there be too many texture files in there for it to go through?

Edit: I attached an image but it may take a minute or two to show up.

I'm not sure why this would happen since the tool only works on one image at a time. Possibly it's finding too many files at one time - hard to say. That doesn't even make sense. I can test on an EA package.

If it's not too humongous to upload, sure.

Edit: Never mind, I got the error myself. Possibly it's a problem image. Working on it!

Edit2: Doesn't seem to be any individual texture, it just chokes after 200 or 300 or so textures. I see where it's happening but not why. Still working on it.

I got it at under 50 textures. It'd hit 20 or so and pop up error message. :-/ So not sure what's going on there.

Thank you for answering my previous questions on the test page I indeed hope the quality is a bit better then ♥
A new question suddenly popped into mind while writing this; Let's say you mistook a package for being non-HQ while essentially the cc was already HQ. Will the tool just ignore this package, or will it override/replace the HQ textures with these ''resized'' HQ textures?

It will not resize any texture that's already the correct size.

Yeah, I got to over 500 once, then the next time failed at just over 200. On the same package. Very odd.

No problem! It also won't size down anything that's bigger than needed (in HQ mode). If getting everything into the standard sizes is preferable I can make that optional.

Hi Cmar! This is an amazing tool!

I, too, received the error, but it was after 724 images (out of 1387). I do not know if this extra information is helpful or not. I will continue working on other folders, and see if I can find any new information regarding it.

Default Error Message Culprit
I got the error message too and I narrowed it down to which cc file specifically caused it for me.

Here's a picture of what I mean:




And here's a link to a pic of this cc's hq resized shadow texture with the black lines around it: https://i.imgur.com/fypPHYk.png


I have the same thing, it happened when we manualy converted shadow map in png instead of dds(((

Ohh! So if for example a specular map has the size of 2048x4096 (which is too big for HQ as 1024x2048 is already double sized for specular maps) then it will remain in that size and it won't be scaled down to the standard HQ size? That's interesting. An optional option to get them in standard sizes would be a nice addition! But only if that's not too much of extra work Atm I'm already grateful for how convenient this tool is
