Hi, I am looking for a free texture maker. If you know of any please share them.

Oh and I am also looking for a pc game I can play offline and online. Can you recommend me a game to play based on my specs? Can be old or new game.

Hi, and welcome to the boards!

OK first off, a free texture maker? I'm not really sure, but I would suggest checking the tools and resources section of the boards. You can find it HERE

Secondly, I think your biggest problem... well, only problem with that PC specification, is the video accelerator. I know it's a laptop, so you can't exactly change/upgrade it... but it is going to really limmit the games you can play on it.

What kind of games do you like? RPG? RTS? FPS? It's hard to recommend something when you don't know what the person likes...

I would recommend something like Red Alert 3 myself... but then I'm not sure if your video card is compatible with it from memory. If you would prefer an older game, you can't beat Sacred if you like the RPG games, or Half Life 2 if you prefer FPS games... the online play for HL2 is still booming and lots of people play it!

Good luck, I hope that helps a little bit at least. :)

old PC games are the best.

Pure fun.
-Worms Armageddon

RTS
-Red Alert 2
-Total Annihilation
-Starcraft

RPG
-Diablo

FPS really come and go, and there's way too many to choose from. Go with HL2, it's not that demanding, and it's really popular with mods and stuff.

As for the texture maker... Go with gimp or paint.net or an old version of paintshop pro. I don't exactly know what you mean by texture maker.. Generate normal maps? Make seamless tiles? Procedural textures? specify more if possible.

Some new retro games are good too. Braid is good example.

If you like RPG games then play Fallout 1 & 2. They're pretty much awesome. Though 1 has a better story and 2 has a better interface.

Haven't played 3 yet, so I can't comment on that one.
