Tried again to play it in vr but its hard, you dont se all text like when you should touch here in the face (you se up to f) and the vr hands are so big so you easy touch something your not trying to touch. Also the menus get ontop off each other, know its probably xpadmin that can do something about it not you on most off the problems.

I'm trying to re-colour Monica's dress but do I edit the .dds files or the .jpg files in scenes/textures/cloth?
If its the .dds files, I can open them in paint.net but do I need to save them in a particular format? Paint.net gives me many options such as DXT1, DXT2 etc and compressor types.

We use the DXT5 format for 4 channel textures and DXT3 for 3 channel textures.
so if you need an alpha channel then use DTX5 otherwise use DTX3

You need to edit the dds

Something strange going on.
I can load the textures cloth_stripe1_jpg.dds and cloth_stripe3_jpg.dds
into Paint.net from \pack\pack_EskDoc\scenes\textures\cloth, edit the colour and save them as DXT3 but when I view them in a file explorer the colours have not changed and they are not changed in game.

When I look at the folder properties for the textures and cloth folder they say read only but trying to deselect that and applying to all folders and files does nothing, the next time you look at the properties it has gone back to read only. I have full permission to the folder and can create and rename files withing it.

In paint.net I have tried saving as DXT3 and DXT5 but there are a bunch more options there (see screenshot)

I have not used Paint.net so i cant help with that part but so long as you edit the file you want then save it as a DTX3 with mipmaps on it should be fine
Otherwise google the Paint.net specifics and see if theres a magic setting somewhere

About to give up on this!
Tried GIMP instead as I was getting no where with Paint.net.
In Gimp the cloth_stripe1_jpg.dds texture loads up with 8 layers of mipmaps, I recolour ever layer and save as DXT3 and using existing mip maps.

Now windows file explorer preview shows the updated colour, so I though progress was being made but when I load xstory Monica now has a plain white dress, although there is s hint of the pink hue I selected.

Ok, I only have Photoshop CS2 but assuming the plugin works ok can you walk me (and potentially future modders) through it and the setting you use?

On load I am offered these options:

and on save these options:

I have tried loading with default sizes and with and without mip maps.
Editing the colours and the tried saving as DXT3 and generating Mip maps and using the existing but both settings result in the texture having an over-exposed effect that is mostly white light the screenshot I posted earlier.

For he wrists etc you can just go the colour you want
but for her main dress you need to go way darker then you think
so if you want pink set it up so its pink then turn it down to about 1/4 and it should be right
