Exporting DDS for MS FSX Flight Sim

I'm new to GIMP (2.10.12 with NormalMap win64 1.2.3 plugin) but long time user of PhotoShop CS6 with nVidia plugin for DDS files. In nVidia's plugin for PS, to convert a file to DDS for MS Flight Simulator FSX, you set as 2D, 8.8.8.8 ARGB 32 Unsigned with no MIP maps and you need to flip vertically.

I have imported a known working PS (PSD) file into GIMP and am trying to get the DDS file converted in GIMP but cannot figure out the settings required by the NormalMap exporter. For those that know MSFS X, the c182_t.dds gives an all black skin in FSX (aka unusable texture file). I have tried to decrease the size/resolution of the file as well, with no success. I might add, that if I examine the GIMP created dds file back in PS CS6, it looks normal, but it will not work in FSX.

Need some help on the NormalMap setup. .

Hello,

there is at the moment no developer/maintainer for the DDS plugin, have a look at this links:

Hi,

On another game, I keep using Gimp 2.8 with the dds plugin (to add by yourself)

You can try ? May be it's compatible with the game you're working on ? http://www.maniapark.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=211743#p211743

GIMP 2.8.22: https://download.gimp.org/mirror/pub/gi ... -setup.exe

DDS Plugin win64: https://storage.googleapis.com/google-c ... -3.0.1.zip

DDS Plugin win32: https://storage.googleapis.com/google-c ... -3.0.1.zip
