[SOLVED] How to modify loading screen DDS files?

When I try to open hw1_loading.dds in GIMP, I only see a single transparent layer…

But Windows Live Photo Gallery, of all things, can open it fine…

Any idea how I can get GIMP to open it properly?

I might be stating the obvious with this, but GIMP doesn’t support the dds format by default, you need a dds plugin for it to work, here is a short and simple instruction on how to get and install the necessary plugins. If you already have the plugin installed and it still won’t open the file, then I’m out of ideas ^^.


Thanks, that was it. I had a dds plugin but it was out of date. I could import some HWRM dds files but not others.
