• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Resample Compile Error

I am trying assist a friend in compiling a simple ground texture for FSX. I have compared his inf file and the required bitmaps and see nothing wrong. I've compared his inf to one of mine with similar bitmaps (Fa, Wi, Sp, N, etc). everything looks correct. . .despite that when I drop the inf on the resample utility it flashes on the screen and is gone.

I downloaded CompileHelper and set the path for bglcomp and resample, but when I drop the inf file on the executable I get this:
The file C:\Users\ejwel\Desktop\Resample\Argentia\Photo01.INF is of an unsupported file type. If you think this type should be supported, please report so at the FSDeveloper forum.

The short manual on the compilehelper states that you should drop the "source" file on the executable. . . .isn't the inf file considered a source file?

The CompileHelper tool does not support resample and INF files, that's what the error indicates.
