Here a simply explanation with the basics
thank you for that tutorial but i still got some questions maybe you could try to answer them

so while dumping soul reaver 2 i got some black textures is that normal? or do i have to do multiple dumps to dump those black textures sucessfull?

and do i have to do a complete playthrough to dump every texture?

Black textures are normal, ignore/delete them. :)
And yes, you need a complete playthrough, :)

what if I get multiply same texture from dump, do I need to edit all of them to make changes in game? for example I got more than 10 of the same character texture with different tag address. should I edit texture all manually?

If they are the same, and every time the character is on screen the emu duplicates the texture, than you have no luck, it will never ends. If no more than 2-10 duplications (with minimal color change), that normal, and yes, you need to upscale all.

Unlimited dump of a texture is impossible, only case known: inventory of RE 3 in dolphin and all the item combinations (programmer dumbass), its not unlimited but its thousands of textures, there is no solution. But if there are 10, 15 textures of a character let's say and they are all the same, just edit in 1 and then make copies of the file and put the hashes of the other textures, rename them manually, if you dont edit and only upscaling simply upscaling all.

wow thanks, seem like using texture dump gives more than 50 of the same texture and i have make multiple copies of the edited texture and rename the tag manually, it does work but the character texture flashes during gameplay.

Flashes or change between upscaled and normal remaining textures? are you sure that ALL the textures are dumped, all are identically, and you restore the alpha after edition? check that. if not is that maybe a bug with upscaled textures happen with that game, check configurations like the blending level. Another possibility is a mipmap drama, check if that charackter dumps mipmaps enabling mipmap dumping.

not ps2 related but can anyone recommend me a tool to bulk convert bmp to dds (dxt5 with mipmaps) ?

tried imageconverterplus but it only gives me errors in the logfile with no texture output (Badargument)

tried several other image converting tools but none of them actually outputs in dxt5

only paint.net would work but it doesnt support bulk/batch actions + the bulk plugin wont work on newer and converting
the textures manually one by one is just horrible to do it for more than 6000 textures

Sorry, but are the dumped textures / texture packs in USA version compatible with PAL games? Or the texture names/codes are different between PAL/NTSC versions.

If not, I assume it can be compatible just by renaming the textures manually, but that would be crazy...

The hashes are different, if is only interface textures you can rename with the dump hashes without much effort, but a whole game its insane, renaming 2000 3000 or more textures is impossible, except if is a exact number pattern (a segment repetitive) that change in both versions, that is modifable with renamer programs. check if are a pattern changeable.
