Swatchbin Texture Converter (swatchbin2dds, sb2dds) by Tado Hmn
- Swatchbin Texture Converter is a swatchbin texture processing tool used to convert swatchbin texture maps from Forza Horizon 3, Forza Motorsport 6 Apex and Forza Motorsport 7 to other wide-open image formats including DDS10, PNG and BMP, while supporting most of DXGI compression standards and input swatchbins with extended TXQU headers.
- Swatchbin Texture Modding Assistant (STMA) is an interface extension to Swatchbin Converter introduced in version 0.42. The interface allows to view, modify and replace swatchbin textures.
- Java Runtime Environment 8 and above Read more: https://tdohmn.webno...ture-converter/ ( latest: https://java.com/en/download/ )

- Drag and Drop support : Possibility to Drag&Drop textures and folder to the program to preform conversion
- Logging support
- Hash-less filenames : Possibility to exclude hash (texture UUID) from texture name for output texture
- Direct output directory: Possibility for output textures to be placed in same directory as input
