Yes, I'm following and have read what you've been discussing here. I have the same problem as I mentioned it in the earlier post. I have set it to a higher version because I thought that my ground texture is too low. That is with the default grass texture (splatting_grass.dds) set to png.
So if this will only work with 4 or 8 textures set in place, then I will have to load a custom terrain and test it again..
