Using DXTBmp destroys files

Recommended Posts

Hey Pilots and Repainters!

 

I wanted to trie making simple repaints (as far as my knowledge goes) for different planes. I use GIMP for the paintwork (I have way too less skill for buying photoshop) then I save it as windows bmp and want to convert it to .dds with DXTBmp... but opening the bmp in DXTBmp converts the colours in a freaky way - please see link for screenshot

The repaints look the same in FSX... I mean this is a nice effect, but a bit too freaky for my taste  :P

 

Thanks for any help!

Try saving it as a 24 bit bitmap (in GIMP) instead of a 16 bit bitmap.
