    You need rfdec to decode the DDS files, then they will open fine in Photoshop. You can reencode them via rfactortools to put back in AMS if you like. ;)

    MOD EDIT: please stop posting link to outside resource, especially to decrypt tool.

    Sorry mod, I will send info via PM. I really had no idea sharing the decrypter mattered as it is the same type of tool as rfactortools, which is shared here on RD in it's own thread.
