  • First and foremost; posts that are posted in the cheat codes/gameshark etc sections are moderated. These sections are strictly for posting cheats/guides only. These sections are moderated to keep out comments such as "thanks" "it works!" and so forth as these types of replies aren't cheats, please use the thumbs up/down feature for this. That being said, adding your own cheats, custom gamegenie/gameshark etc codes are allowed, they will fall into the moderation queue as mentioned to keep out irrelevant content though but yes, you are welcome to add your own codes to a existing thread. If you would like to give feedback on something, then please use the consoles chat forum for that and other discussions related to that console.

    As a reminder to some users here, I'm going to give a refresher/update on some rules concerning gamehacking codes and cheat codes. If you see a thread or a post where the author wasn't attributed properly (and you are the originator of said code; do not report it if you are not the originator of the code or your account will have appropriate actions taken against it!), then click the report button and provide relevant information on who should be credited and provide an original source from a CMS, (website, blog, forum, etc) that has a proper timestamp. Point out which codes need attribution and to what username should be credited, your report will be examined and changes will be made where applicable.

Dreamcast textures?


Vgcheat Member
Can anyone tell me how to change textures in a dreamcast game? Because I've been looking everywhere and I'm not getting any answers. I seen one site talk about the TEXMOD method, but they never explain the whole converting the texture step. So any help would be nice.

Modifying textures in Dreamcast games can be a complex process, and it often involves using specific tools and methods tailored to the platform. Unfortunately, due to the limited information available, it's challenging to provide a step-by-step guide without knowing the specific game you're trying to mod and the tools available for it.

That being said, I can offer some general guidance on the process, but keep in mind that this may not cover all the specifics of your situation.

Research the Game:

Look for information about modding the specific Dreamcast game you're interested in. Forums, community websites, and game-specific modding communities are good places to start.

TEXMOD Method:

If TEXMOD is mentioned, it's likely a tool used for texture modification in various games. However, the exact steps can vary based on the game and how it handles textures.
Typically, TEXMOD works by intercepting the rendering calls between the game and the graphics API (DirectX, for example) and replacing the textures on the fly.
Texture Conversion:

If you need to convert textures, you might need additional tools for that specific game's file format. Some games use proprietary formats that require specialized tools.
Look for game-specific modding communities or forums where users might share information about the file formats used in the game.
Texture Editors:

Some games have dedicated texture editors that allow you to create or modify textures. These editors are often community-developed and may have specific instructions for use.

Backup Original Files:

Before making any changes, always create backups of the original game files. This ensures that you can revert to the original state if something goes wrong.
Trial and Error:

Modding can be a trial-and-error process, especially if there isn't a comprehensive guide available. Be prepared to experiment, learn from others in the modding community, and adapt your approach based on your findings.
Remember, modding games may violate the terms of service of the game and could potentially lead to issues if used in multiplayer or online environments. Always respect the rights of the game developers and follow any guidelines or restrictions they have set.

If you provide more details about the specific game you're trying to mod, it might be easier to offer more targeted assistance.
