Dependencies


This program is able to batch convert images, including limited support for reading BLP files!

Since Reforged introduced DDS we can now squish the file size of our maps even further, and this converter serves as an easy-to-use solution for converting an entire folder of image files (does not convert sub-folders). Supports BC1, BC2 and BC3 for DDS compression and mipmaps.

Reads: JPG, PNG, BMP, DDS, BLP
Writes: JPG, PNG, BMP, DDS

Limitations:
  • The library it uses to read BLP files does not read alpha channels properly, resulting in loss of transparency and team colors. It only retains transparent pixels with 100% transparency.
  • Does not support BLP0.
Required for running the application:
Has only been tested on a Windows machine.

The project is written in C# and uses the following libraries for image conversion:

The tool works and is useful for (batch) converting textures. Having full BLP transparency support would be nice, but it might still be of use even though alpha has issues. For more advanced use refer to the NVIDIA Texture Tools Exporter for Photoshop...

Alpha works in DDS conversion for this tool. It's the BLP reading library that has issues.
