Add DIB file extension

Recommended Posts

At least with Windows 10 you find ".dib" as alternative file extension for Bitmaps. These are rendered as normal bitmap in the Windows Explorer.

 

Current behavior with PDN 4.0.21:

* open file: extension "*.dib" not shown

* manually choose file: error message "image format unknown..."

* manually rename file to *.bmp: file can be opened without any problem

 

Windows 10 Paint, Paint 3D (and IrfanView) opens all *.dib as *.bmp - is it possible to add the same behavior to PDN (without installing the following plugin)?

What exactly do you need DIB for? Are you just asking for completeness or do you have some task that makes use of it?

 

And why would you need it built-in if there's already a plugin for it?

I also need it. I am making a pokemon fangame rom (actively avoiding the word 

Spoiler

"hack"

) and I want to edit my exported map images from Emerald to be used in FireRed.
