Either your PATH environment variable is corrupt, or your xcopy.exe doesn't exist or is corrupt.
So I tried to run the batch with all the files correctly placed' date=' but when I pressed the [i']any[/i] key I got this error a few hundred times (once for every texture?)

I have no idea what those are, any idea how to diagnose them?

It's basically a manual list that copies the preferred textures from each set into one compounded folder. Looking at the source for the batch file, it'd be very easy to write a program that does the same for any number of mods. The problem is sorting through individual textures to find the preferred ones and creating a system/program to remember and edit the choice if new textures are added.

My PATH doesn't seem to have system32 as one of the folders, mostly a bunch of ATI/AMD folders as well as Qt. How do I add system32?
xcopy.exe is located in C:\Windows\system32 .
Run "cmd" without the quotes at the run command, then type "path" (no quotes) and then enter. You will see several lines of text showing all of the system directories that are automatically searched when you enter a command in the command window (these are the entries in the PATH environment variable). You should see C:\Windows\system32 on one of the lines.
I'm assuming you are a system administrator when running the batch command.
If there are no problems with xcopy and the PATH variable then there might be a permission problem of some sort.

- Right click on Computer and select Properties.
- Click [Advanced system settings] on the left pane.
- In the new window, click the [Environment Variables] button.
- Under "System variables", locate the variable "Path", then double click it to edit.
- You can copy the contents of the "Variable value" textbox, and paste it in a text editor to have a better visual of the contents. The following entry needs to be in there: "%SystemRoot%\system32"
- Right click on My Computer and select Properties.
- Click the Advanced tab.
- Continue from step 3 above.

This guy's gonna run us out of business! Luckily the actual "program" is very simple and it's open source by nature so we can develop a similar batch for STEP. I'm actually liking his choices, although it's hard to go wrong with the packs he's using.

Immensly glad to see you here!!
Hello, I'm the creator of the TPC. I'm glad to hear that you're planning to add the TPC into STEP. If you have any suggestions or questions about my texture choices then feel free to post them here. Texture choice is very subjective so there will always be disagreements, but at least I may be able to explain the choices I have made.
While I'm here, I'm going to take the opportunity to ask if there is anyone knowledgeable enough in texture creation to modify a texture for me. I'm currently trying to incorporate Tobes Highres Textures into the TPC, but I have unfortunately come across a flaw in one of his main textures. You can see for yourself here:
I'm fairly certain that the cause of this is merely a couple of black pixel lines at the top of the actual texture. I could probably download some software to edit this myself, but I'm not very familiar with DXT compressions.
The texture in question is:
And of course its corresponding normal map might have to be adjusted as well, although I'm not sure if that's entirely necessary.
Tobe himself states on his mod's page that it's fine to use his work for as long as he's credited for it. So if this texture is fixed, I could include it with the TPC itself.
Otherwise I'll feel forced to go with the SMIM texture instead, but I'm not a big fan of that particular texture.
Yeah i see the faults, and i hope they'll be fixed soon, but i'm wondering if is it possible to use other textures from Tobes pack over the ones of the TPC mods, is it worth it? If not, then as you said we can only hope for a fix to use something from Tobes.
Also, i have another mod to suggest for inclusion: Skyrim Redesigned. this one is Very modular so since you are very good at spotting worth textures, you can include it in TPC selecting only the good stuff from it ;)
For example, i've picked up only those from Skyrim Redesigned (the only files overwriting TPC mods are chopping block and salmon):
Barenziah jewelry box
Bloody rags v1
Brown (less saturated) money bags
Buckets - meshes better with environment)
Chopping block v2
Skeleton key v1
Tankards and wooden plates Final Version
