Sounds as though somethings gone wrong there,as i'm new to this painting stuff, i won't be much help, but i dare say there will be an expert along soon to rectify the problem. 😉


You need to open the bitmaps in DXTBMP and resave as extended bitmap 32-888 or if performance is an issue in DXT3 format

Make sure the include mips box is unchecked

If you don't then the paint will not show in FS or if it is done in CS2 then FS will crash to desktop.

Either way it needs to be resaved in DXTbmp
