Quake 2 *.wal loading not working.

Post by xaGe »

With the Re release of Quake 2 just a few months ago Quake 2 modding is popular. XnViewMP has supported *.wal texture loading for years.

Linux still displays them, but I would like to report a bug with the Windows version 1.6.5 2024-02-22. Upgraded from an older 2023 version and Quake 2 *.wal textures are no longer displaying thumbnails or loading as images. Is there a fix for this yet? I looked for reports of the bug 1st, but found none.

I wonder if I am forgetting something, extra step, setting, or download to make them work, but in the past I just remember it working without the need to do anything special.

Thank you !

OK, found out it is not a *.wal format issue, but a very vague setting I must have had checked in the past and forgotten since it has been so long I've been using XnviewMP. Wal loading is listed as a feature, but is not listed in the Formats list so it's a bit confusing enabling this button is required to make it work, but it does. It seems to be the only thing that button does on my system, but without a list of what it enables outside of the formats listing under the Settings --> Formats there is no way of knowing.
