I D/L Henry's paint kit from HTAI. It is a Photoshop file and I did get it to open up and work in PSP9. I saved it and compressed it through DXTBMP, all the usual stuff. The texture will not show up when I try to view it in Model Converter X. Other paints done by ther painters do show up for that model. I figured it might be a PSP thing so I tried GIMP and got the same results. Curiously, The bmp file is 1.33MB while the one that works is 1.00. I'm just banging my head trying to figure this out since I'm new to painting FS9 aircraft. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you cgold. I figured it out. All the other paint kits I used I had the mip map box in DXTBmp checked but the Shorts kit does not want you to include a mip map. Just another little quirk I learned as I continue this new-found, very-late-to-the-party, FS9 painting hobby!
