View Full Version : How do I edit .DAT textures?
I'd like to edit some of SH3's .dat files but have no idea how I can open them, as they're not accepted by Photoshop.

There are 4 programs which can extract & import the TGA files from inside the DAT files:
1)Pack 3D - http://files.filefront.com/P3dAllVersion7z/;6558397;/fileinfo.html
2)Chessmaster Extraction Tool - http://files.filefront.com/DatTexExtractzip/;9276853;/fileinfo.html
3)Timetravellers Extraction Tool - http://files.filefront.com/SH3Unpacker+build143zip/;6255425;/fileinfo.html
4)S3D Editor - http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=119571
Once you have the TGA's outside of the DAT, you can edit them in Photoshop (or other), then I would suggest you import them back in.
