The paint.net devs stated the intent to integrate this over a year ago, but it has yet to happen. I don't suppose you've heard anything about that in the meantime?

 

I do not have any information about when this plugin will be integrated into Paint.NET.

Btw, your readme does not mention the need to rename .dds to .dds2.

 

I added the line from the first post in this thread to the readme, and updated the project readme on GitHub.

Hey, I can't get the paint.net to show all the layers in the dds2-file I'm opening. Am I missing something?

 

Editing DDS Files with multiple images (such as cube maps) is not currently supported.

Do I just edit the main image and save with layers?

 

If your images contain mipmaps (smaller versions of the main image), you can edit the main image and select the "Generate Mipmaps" option when saving.

I don't know anything about DDS formats.
I have a simulator programme that uses them to render backgrounds.

They come in 6 images (6 sides of a cube). 

I'd like to be able to modify these images and even create my own.

However, neither the native nor this plugin can read the files (https://drive.google.com/open?id=12cwQCYD6K-l3hBWTFNoM6NWq74yqcYE2).

Any help would be appreciated. TIA

That is not a DDS file, it may be a custom format that uses the DDS file extension.

You should try asking on a forum for the simulator program you are using, there may be a way to convert the images to a standard format.

Hi. I'm a new member here, and I created this account specifically to report this issue. I can't seem to be able to open my .dds files. Along with that, even though I have this plugin installed it tells me that .dds2 is not a valid file type. If I need to send screenshots or the actual image, just tell me and I'll do so.

 

If you're wondering where the file came from, it was ripped from the video game Sonic Forces.

 

Thanks in advance.

Where did you install the plugin?

In the filetypes folder.

 

Could you post a screenshot of your filetypes folder?
