DDS file not opening/displaying


Recommended Posts

Im modding DarkSouls right now and have custom icons for custom items.


The problem is for the icons:

DDS files can be saved with paint.net - but wont open or be displayed in the game


DDS files cannot be opened in GIMP.

When this occurs Error message reads: "DDS Image Message / Unsupported DXGI format (98)"

The GIMP DDS plugin does not support BC7.


I am not familiar with DarkSouls modding, but from a quick search it appears the game expects DDS files to use BC3/DXT5.

Which texture format did you try to use?


The OP is using BC7 according to the GIMP error message, 98 corresponds to DXGI_FORMAT_BC7_UNORM in the DXGI_FORMAT enumeration.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait
