How do I use DDS files? Painting help.

Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by Adam Bark, Aug 1, 2011.

  1. I'm planning on entering a team for the World Trophy probably next season now, but I was messing around trying to paint a livery for the 2011 mod and when I open a dds file the car files are all transparent. Is there anyway I can turn them back into solid colours or are there any templates I can download to help me? All the race suit files are fine but I've never used DDS files before so I have no idea what I'm doing :rolleyes:
  2. Ahh, thanks very much! :wink:
  3. ANOTHER QUESTION! Sorry to be a pain in the ass, but, I manage to open then file, paint my design on it, flatten the image then save as a DDS and put it into the appropriate folder, but the livery only shows up as either black or with various random lines streaked across it. What am I doing wrong? :frown:
