PopCap TGA format

Post by Kristoffer Jose on Tue Oct 27, 2015 6:02 am

PopCap games, such as Bejeweled 2, use a special version of the TGA format which we will dub as "PopCap TGA".

PopCap TGA contains both an image and an alpha channel in one file.

PopCap TGA is backwards-compatible with standard TGA, but standard TGA is not forwards-compatible with the PopCap TGA.

Standard TGA viewers will only display the image without the alpha channel.

To use standard TGA images in PopCap games, you must convert them first to PNG format, rename the resulting files to the required filename, and have the game using the converted PNG images. Delete any conflicting JPEG, JPEG2000, PopCap TGA, and/or GIF files having the same filename.
