I'm hoping for the Template soon as well.

I all he somebody mentioned about using an Intel plugin for the files instead of the Nvidia one. Also have you tried converting the file type before opening in Photoshop needs to be extended bitmap if I remember correctly?

YES! Thank you! I had just found that and verified it works. Was coming back to Update this thread.

It is discussed here
https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.p...highlight=.dds

In poking around at the Helmet dds it looks like there is a "Patch" square that might pull a texture from somewhere else, sort of like the old bort numbers, or XML patches in Arma... Any ideas?

On Mac you can open the .dds files in Preview and then export them as .tiff files which can then be opened in Photoshop.

Here is the skin I'm working on for TAW. It is rough but being used to develop what I'll do with the .psd whenever it is released.

If anyone can unpack the edm to get the cockpit textures and description.lua I will make a version where the text is legible.

I was not able to extract the edm myself.
