    Skins of aircraft showing on windows 10

    An problem I seem to be facing with some aircraft is that the skins are not showing on some models, the models themselves do but just grey in colour, some I can rectify by finding another copy of the aircraft and swapping skins, others there doesn't seem to be a fix, when having a look at the bmp files my computer tells me as below. Is there another program I need to rectify this?

    That may depend on what video card your using or on board graphics card ,
    the older ones , used to have a box to enable DXT , from the card GUI root system ,
    Check their first ,

    Thanks, Im running a Nvidia GeForce GTX1050Ti,and found the Control Panel for it but the DXT is not mentioned, resorted to using Martin Wrights DXTBMP to change the file types in the meantime until I can work this out.

    Question Reply...

    Murray,

    Just out of curiosity, are you making sure that the aircraft.cfg entry for the texture folder and the texture folder actually match up?

    Yes, all appears to be correct, when I go intp the texture in DXTBmp and open the DXT3 and save again as an extended 256 Color , the skins show in CFS2 with no apparent issues

    Extended 256 bitmaps are 8 bit colour. This suggests you are not utilising the best display properties of your GTX1050.

    I'm pretty sure you need to edit your cfs2.cfg using Notepad.
