Tool: ShaderRGB


I created a small VB program to "convert" Photoshop 0-255 RGB to quake shader 0-1 RGB values. You can pick a color in Photoshop, take over the RGB and then paste in the shader line into your shader. For use in other than US Windows you will have to change the decimal "," to a "." or change Regional and Language Options to "English(United States)"

You may need Visual Basic Runtime. Try this download link: Visual Basic 6.0 Runtime Module

I noticed many old id-Tech-3 editing tools are quite difficult to find so I set up mirrors locally - this is more or less the basic setup I recommend

Gtk Radiant 1.4 for Q3A, RtCW & ET
