Dnas Not bad... but not really advanced either.

Most of the info you have I had figured out for my self about a week or two into modding.
The rest I figured out by playing with a hex-editor.

Some of the info you have about ddt types is incorrect, though.

If there is a mask, you convert it with either 1-bit or 4-bit alpha.

If not, you convert it with no alpha.

Depending on if you want transparency or not, use alpha[0] or 1.

If you want alpha transperency on a poly that already has player color, you need to tweek the material id of each poly.

12-bit and 4-bit alpha gives you less colors for the texture, but more for the mask. Use this if you want partial transparencies.

15-it and 1-bit alpha gives you more colors for the texture, but you can only have two values in the mask, black or white.
