Nice article. Valuable.

Ondrej, or Maruk (I forget who) told me that ArmA doesn't use compression in pbo's (at least) for file streaming reasons. (whatever that means). I believe Elite doesn't use *any* compression at all (not sure).

We will have to be cautious with the wrp, paa, and p3d articles to check that compression is still used in these. For paa and wrp it is, for p3d, not sure

Now that ArmA is out in .cz, can anyone confirm whether non-DXT textures still use compression? Feersum 15:15, 22 November 2006 (CET)

Confirmed - yes they still use compression Feersum 11:03, 5 December 2006 (CET)

If anyone has more information about exact format of swizzle tag (apart that it's dword) it would be appreciated. Feersum 11:03, 5 December 2006 (CET)
