[HELP]Bumb mapping...

Can someone help me with a link to a tutorial for bumb mapping in stalker from scratch? The plugin i use for CS3, nVidia Bumb map, does not work with stalker because its another method. Stalker only uses the green tint while the normal bumb maps other games use are the same as those from the nVidia plugin (purple, blue, green)

So, anyone has some advice on this?

This could be helpful.

Stalker uses inverse bump channels so original RGBA becomes ABGR.

I've had the same problem in Stalker. Normal methods for making bump maps just don't work. Why the devs chose to use a retarded form of bump mapping is beyond me. I've tried making a displacement map god knows how many times and it still won't work properly with the texture :/

What's annoying in that?
It took me 1 minute to make an action in Photoshop to swap the channels from normal map to stk format. Now I have proper bump map in 1 mouse click.

I'm a efficient person, "one click extra here" in my case amounts to thousands of extra clicks overall >.< Which is why its fortunate loner can be arsed with all those extra clicks, because I certainly can't
