    texture pack problem OOT

    hey guys! first off im not sure if this is where im meant to post questions/help thread but im new here so please be chill

    okay so here is my problem, i have recently started using pj64 again (been many years) and im interested in using texture packs to make my old fav games a little less hard on the eyes. i have succesfully ran a texture pack for diddykong racing (so my settings and what not are fine) and it worked well, though when i try a pack djipis oot pack pj64 doesnt try to load it whatsoever D:
    i have tried it in plugins/GFX/hires_texture/THE LEGEND OF ZELDA, textures/THE LEG.... and textures/cache/THE LEG.. with no luck.
    i see the problem being in file types, my diddykong racing texture pack came in a folder with lots of pngs n the works. where as my oot pack is in a single .htc file.
    ive done alot of reading and im sure im doing everything right
    any ideas?

    im using glide64 2.1 (video plugin that comes with the most recent update) i havnt tried another as one texture pack works fine here so i dont see that being the problem

    thanks to any replies and sorry again if this is in the wrong section!

    edit im under the understanding i can use the htc file as is? some sites ramble on with a bunch of crap but as far as i know all i need to do is drop that file like i would the folder. im probably making a super noob mistake here xd

    Instructions on how to load the HTC are found in the threads containing the pack that you are trying to load.

    could you point me in a direction by any chance?

    - - - Updated - - -

    okay ive followed these and other tutorials very closely. ive put the texture file in every damn possible file mentioned in said tuts.
    i do not think my location choice is a problem what so ever.
    its the htc format thats doing it. ALL tuts talk about .dat files not .htc (though i did follow these aswell to no avail)

    please no links. odds are ive read the tut you're sending me too :/ i would love some genuine help pls! im happy to post screenshots/settings or whatever anyone needs to assist me ive spent hours reading/watching vids etc. and every single one is just telling me to do whats already been done. words of wisdom come at me.

    - - - Updated - - -

    video plugin - glide64 for pj64 2.1
    texture path pj64/plugins/gfx/hires_texture
    i have placed the htc file in hires_texture/THE LEGEND OF ZELDA

    is this my issue?

    You are using Djipi's latest release?
    Instructions by Djipi are found in the same post as the packs are.
    If these are not working for you I don't know what I can do.

    ooh i didnt know he had a 2016 release (im using 2015 atm) but i have tried it in his specified folder :/
    do you have this pack by any chance would you know what file type it is? because for some reason my pj64 doesnt recognize the htc files :/ and only individual folders with PNGs.

    im about to check out the file name and see if theres something that should be removed from the file name..
    also his instructions are out dated.. i dont think the cache is located in GFX in the newest release its in textures

    - - - Updated - - -

    no luck theres a copy of these textures in every folder it would ever be needed in..
    textures/cache
    GFX/cache
    hires_texture/THE LEGEND OF ZELDA

    hope you have the pack im severly limited on data and dont want to dl more crap that isnt gunna work.. :/ (pay like $400 a month for 60gig dls) >.>

    ----UPDATE----
    im the biggest noob ever :/ didnt realise djipis pack only works with gliden64

    though im having more issues with this im sure ill figure it out.
    currently can get textures to load with public realease 1.0 though only black screen but i think thats just because im missing a file xD

    though id like to use 2.0 :/ but for some reason this release wont load the textures D: and i get majorr lag in alot of games (if they even manage to open)

    anyone else here having fps trouble with the new release?

    defs not fault of my pc.. i have high end specs

    ----UPDATE#2----
    i have gliden64 working okay with a 20-30 fps.. though my audio is super bad (will try other plugins)
    i also have the OOT texture pack loaded! and working! besides links ava in start screen is bugged out but im about to dl the newer release now i know everything is working fine!

    tyvm for ur help and patience

    Other plugins will not work with Djipi's pack.
    GlideN64 was updated to 2.0.
    You should try using Project 64 1.6 or try turning the sync audio to game option off in the settings panel of pj64 2.x.

    What do you have for a pc?
