What is the max resolution for textures?

A Question for Source Engine

Question Answered but Unsolved

This Question has been answered but no solution has been chosen. You can still post your own answer to help the submitter.
What is the max size a texture can reach before it doesn't work?

i used a vtfedit that was modified to use goldsrc non power of 2 textures but i don't know if thats the reason.

the 8192x4096 texture does work ingame but i don't know if the texture size is really 8192.

Link to the 8192x4096 metrocop vtf - there isn't a alpha channel because i used mspaint

Does the vtf show up as 8k for you?

Eat your heart out cinematic mod.

each time i go back to edit this question all my images aren't there, gamebanana, plz fix.

    Resolutions can go into thousands, as long as the given resolution is the power of two. For example:

    2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096 etc.

    That's just 4K at the lowest. You should raised it to 16384x8192.

    Going over 2048x2048y isn't recommended. The file sizes will be incredibly bloated and wasteful, and some branches of the Source engine might not even be able to load them.
