    So it's like this:

    I'm making a custom skybox texture of a solar eclipse, dimensions 4096 x 1536. When I put the TGA though VTEX however, it tells me this:

    "ERROR: Can't convert image from RBGA88888 to DXT1 in CalcLowResImage"

    This sucks, as I really really really want a solar eclipse map and fool around with interesting lighting

    maybe 1536 is the problem? seeing as it's not a power of 2.

    Oh also, isn't VTEX the VTF to TGA converter?
