if your wonderin what im talkin about i a friend o mine compiled me a gsdx rev.1475 and it has a new settings for 8bit textures so im askin if anyone here knows what it is for !!!!!!!!
If I'm not mistaken, this is an option to offload palletized texture lookups to the graphics card — via pixel shader. It might give you better performance in texture-heavy games.
Athlon 64 X2 5600+ 2.81GHz [Windsor] w/ Noctua NH-C12P
Asus Xonar D2 w/ Logitech Z-5500
e-VGA 8800GTS 640MB 513/792 stock ; 720/1080 o/c
Corsair XMS2 1GB DDR2 PC6400 x2
Western Digital 500GB 16MB cache x2
Thermaltake W0106RU 700W

tnx i read in google code just that odin sphere needs this on to play on fullspeed so are there any other games that need this on to get better performance without breaking something
Is this is how it supposed to work or there is some problem.On every game when I try this option I see texture problems
Generally games which are using 99% cpu with gsdx can be improved by enabling the 8bit textures. This isnt guarenteed but its worth trying if your game is slow.

It generally requires a new powerful graphics card to make good use of it. But unless your game is using 99% CPU in the gsdx window, its unlikely to make much of a difference.
